Choosing The Right Carpet Cleaning Machine For Your Business
Professionals in the carpet cleaning industry know that the equipment they use is
the heart and soul of their business. Equipment that is durable, efficient, and cost
effective can make the difference between a successful company and one that
merely gets by.
If you're new to the industry, you have probably realized by now that the equipment
options can seem endless. Even if you've been in the industry for a while and are
considering an update of your equipment, you may not be that familiar with many of
the newer models or machines such as carpet extractors. It’s critical that you have
some knowledge of the different types of carpet cleaners if you’re involved in the
industry so that you can determine which option would make the most effective and
worthwhile investment for you and your business.
Choosing The Right Carpet Cleaner
If you're new to the industry, you may be overwhelmed by the variety of machines
available. For example, you may wonder what the difference is between a carpet
extractor and other types of carpet cleaning equipment. Let's see if we can clear up
some of the confusion by examining a few types of machines along with their
features and benefits.
- Truck mount carpet cleaning machines are mounted in a van or trailer and are
thought to be the most powerful and effective carpet cleaner to be found in the
market. With industrial-strength pressure, these machines are ideal for businesses
that require heavy-duty cleaning.

used by individual technicians for smaller and spot jobs.
- Carpet extractors use hot or cold water to give a deep clean. Great on deep-set

clean of all the other types of carpet cleaning machines. With thorough cleaning and
rapid drying times, they are ideal for companies that concentrate on areas requiring
- Encapsulation carpet cleaning machines are a little different from other types.

some other machines can.
When you're looking for new carpet cleaning equipment or are thinking about
upgrading existing equipment, don't leave anything to chance. Gathering as much
research and information as you possibly can is an important step. Remember, the
equipment you use will make or break your business.
