Truck mounted carpet cleaners offer a huge advantage over machines that cannot be transported easily. Truck mounted machines can be transported over long distances. If you are a contractor who is required to travel to the various client locations in order to clean carpets, truck mounted carpet cleaners could become the lifeline of your business. These machines can be easily fitted on trailers and can be used to clean carpets in far off locations. These machines have many other advantages which have made truck mounted carpet cleaners popular among contractors, mobile car wash businesses, and similar businesses.
High Pressure Levels
These kind of machines are built for commercial operations. That is why they feature higher pressure levels than machines build simply for home carpet cleaning. At higher pressure levels, the cleaning action is more effective and the removal of dirt and grime is easier. Using truck mounts carpet cleaners, you can remove grease, pet urine, ink, food residues, and similar substances from the carpet.
Low-flow level indicates that the machine uses minimal water for cleaning. This is a huge advantage, if you are traveling to a location where water supply is not guaranteed. Mobile car wash businesses, for example, are required to clean fabric upholstery of cars, but they may be constrained by the amount of water they are permitted to use. Low-flow machines end all such problems and ensure that the carpets dry faster. Faster drying removes the threat of mold and odors.
Durable Wands and Hoses
A long hose ensures that the machine is able to clean carpets without having to be moved frequently. Commercial carpet washers often have hoses as long as 25 feet. There are two hoses, the first being the solution hose and the second one the vacuum hose. Both should be long enough to clean large carpets without requiring the machine to be moved around too much. Long hoses raise productivity and ensure that the operator does not have to go back and forth to move the carpet extractor while cleaning carpets.
The wand should be durable and designed to clean carpets efficiently, thoroughly, and with minimal problems. Many wands are designed to ensure that maximum water is extracted from the carpet after washing. This results in faster carpet drying. Usually wands of 12 inches in dimension are used for cleaning carpets in regular commercial locations. However, for cleaning fabric upholstery inside cars or fabric upholstery on furniture, you need a smaller 4-inch wand.
A carpet extractor might be heated or non-heated. Many contractors prefer non-heated carpet cleaners because they cost less. These rug washers are ideal for cleaning delicate carpets or carpets that are not very dirty. Another advantage of non-heated carpet cleaning equipment is that they can use water as hot as 140°F for washing carpets. With the addition of an eco-friendly, effective detergent, the carpet wash process becomes even simpler and the detergent is powerful enough to remove grease and stains from the carpet. However, if the carpet is very dirty, grimy with grease, stains, and bad odors, you would need to use heated carpet washers for cleaning the carpet.
Carpet steam cleaners attain temperatures as high as 210°F. These kind of rug washers are ideal for commercial locations where carpets are often very dirty and need to be cleaned frequently. The advantage of these machines is that should you ever require cold water for cleaning, the carpet steam cleaners can use cold water as well for washing carpets.
Rug cleaners and other types of carpet cleaning equipment have many features designed to enhance productivity. These carpet washers are used in industries as varied as hospitality, health, building maintenance, and car wash.
