What Makes Texatherm Different From Other Carpet Cleaning Manufacturers?

Whether you're a newcomer to the carpet cleaning industry, or you're a veteran with several years on the wand, choosing the right equipment is the most important decision you'll make.

Great results and customer satisfaction are how you build a strong carpet and upholstery cleaning business that will thrive in the long term.

Unfortunately, since commercial hot water extraction cleaning machines were introduced to the UK in the 1970s very little has changed.

Investment by manufacturers in the development of new technologies and methods for our industry has been poor, and while the aesthetics of the machines have changed, the technology and internal workings have not kept pace with other industries, with the build quality, in general, being poor.

And due to their design and current lack of systems to control the machines' critical components, many machines suffer from performance and reliability issues.

Indeed, there is an acceptance by industry professionals to expect periodic breakdowns and ongoing maintenance due to leaks and short-lived components.

But there is a company in the carpet cleaning industry doing things differently.

Our Background

Back in the 1990s, Mark Mullane started a specialist carpet and upholstery cleaning company based in Portishead called Aquadri. The company grew steadily and traded within a 50-mile radius of Bristol.

Whilst operating the Aquadri business, Mark found that his success and quality of work were attracting enquiries from large commercial companies.

While this was welcome, moving from residential work to commercial proved to be tricky due to the construction of low-profile carpets and their impervious backs which would not allow airflow to be pulled through the backing. This meant that traditional standard cleaning methods such as hot water extraction could not always deliver the standards Mark required.

After extensive research, it became clear that there was nothing available that would better the systems and methods he was already using. Further research confirmed that the norm in the industry was to extract and then run a bonnet machine over the carpet afterwards or just bonnet pad clean the surface of the fibres.

Neither of these methods could achieve the results Mark expected and so he started to look for alternatives and through his own experience of cleaning carpets realised that heat played a pivotal part in the cleaning processes he was already using.

He then started experimenting with heating pads and prototyping chemicals with a toll blender and found that a combination of an alcohol-based pre-spray release agent applied directly to the carpet followed by mixing a reactive solution via a heated pad produced startling results.

Now it was time to tackle the biggest issue of all.

The Machinery

What Makes Texatherm Different

There has never been one method or cleaning machine that would clean the vast array of carpets and upholstery fabrics available today.

To this day, most companies purchase multiple pieces of expensive equipment to enable them to complete the range of jobs they face each week. Historically, this was also the case for Texatherm operatives who still needed hot water extraction machines to clean upholstery and deal with certain types of carpet cleaning jobs.

While our clients loved our Texatherm system, they still had to set up other machinery when on jobs that encompassed carpet, upholstery and possibly hard floor cleaning. The feedback from our clients was that they would like to be able to set up one machine that could adapt, combine and deliver multiple cleaning methods.

After five years of research and development, the EMV201 was born (now the EMV409)

With the EMV,  We systematically went about scrutinising every individual component in an extraction machine, followed by detailed consultations enlisting the help of engineers from relevant industries. This gave us an understanding of why machines were currently unreliable with short life spans. We then set about individually designing each weakness out of our design. This was achieved by commissioning specialists in each field and developing new control systems whilst stipulating that our suppliers deliver to our design specifications and not theirs.

The Texatherm Difference

While the EMV is first and foremost a hot water extraction machine, it has been designed to allow you to clean using other methods that would usually require you to spend thousands of pounds on additional equipment.

The nature of carpet and upholstery cleaning means that there isn't one single method that can clean all types of furnishings effectively and it is important to be able to adapt and change processes and methods as required.

Being able to utilise multiple methods of cleaning makes the Texatherm system incredibly cost-effective, particularly for new start-up carpet cleaning businesses.

When you invest in Texatherm, you're able to clean using hot water extraction or with a low moisture process that leaves carpets dry in as little as 30 minutes. In addition, you can clean using our dual combination method, which achieves next-level results.

The Texatherm system allows you to effectively clean, carpets, upholstery, curtains, mattresses and hard floors!

Indeed, our digital EMV 409 allows 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.
