As an aspiring professional carpet cleaner, choosing the right machine is perhaps the most important business decision you'll make.
With the right equipment, your job as a carpet cleaner will become much easier and more rewarding.
But with so many options, how do you choose the right carpet cleaning machine for your business?
In this article, we'll discuss some of the key factors you should consider when choosing a professional carpet cleaning machine.
If you're going to be using the hot water extraction method of cleaning carpets, the first thing you need to look for in a professional carpet cleaning machine is powerful suction.
The machine should have a strong motor that can generate powerful suction to extract as much ingrained dirt and moisture from the carpet fibres. The more suction power the machine has, the more moisture will be removed and the faster the drying time.
Texatherm's EMV 409 utilises a custom wound 3-stage dual vacuum motor system with optimised, non-restrictive airflow paths, delivering very high-performance recovery.
Many carpet cleaners become fixated on using high psi to clean carpets...
Each and every carpet is tackled by spraying the carpet with strong chemicals and cranking up the water pressure.
This can lead to all manner of problems such as over-wetting, shrinkage and browning.
At Texatherm, we developed the world's first digital pump flow control system, with automated instant true pressure at the tool end ensuring performance remains consistent when working at a distance or high above the machine with extension hoses.
With 13 different pressure settings, you benefit from complete moisture control when cleaning a large variety of carpet and fabric types. And you get optimised flow for higher efficiency rinsing without over-wetting carpets with high-pressure pumps.
This results in outstanding dry times and cleaning results.
Many carpet cleaners choose to use the hot water extraction method of cleaning.
Some professional carpet cleaning machines can produce heated water, while others require a heater to be purchased separately.
Heat can be very useful for breaking down stubborn stains and dirt and can also help to speed up the drying process as the hot air helps to evaporate the water more quickly.
Our machines come with a bespoke, 316 stainless steel, twin circuit, 3000w heater element. It provides reliable, quick and constant heat at the tool end.
Unfortunately, there isn’t one best cleaning method or process for cleaning carpets and upholstery.
Each method and process has its place.
The variety and variations in fabrics and carpet types mean that some cleaning methods will work better than others depending on what you’re cleaning or trying to restore.
This is why Texatherm offers multiple unique cleaning systems and methods.
We have created a complete system of specialist chemical solutions, methods and innovative equipment that complement each other and allow you to clean using multiple cleaning methods without needing to purchase several different systems.
Our digital EMV 409 allows carpet cleaning technicians to switch between cleaning methods in minutes. No wasted time packing away equipment and setting up new equipment if a new cleaning approach is needed in order to complete a job.
When choosing a professional carpet cleaning machine, look for a machine that is built to last and constructed from high-quality materials.
The machine should be able to perform reliably during busy periods when you may be required to carry out multiple jobs per day. Look for machines that come with a robust warranty, as this can give you peace of mind that the machine will be repaired if it develops any faults.
Invest in a good professional machine that will last for years and you'll save money in the long run by avoiding the need to replace or repair the machine frequently.
And you'll avoid having to cancel a full diary of jobs due to yet another breakdown.
