Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.
When you select a carpet cleaner, you will choose from a wide variety of cleaning methods, prices and technicians.
Shaw Industries, the world’s largest carpet manufacturer, recommends HOT WATER EXTRACTION FROM TRUCK MOUNTED UNITS.
Here’s why: A truck mounted unit cleans much better than a small portable carpet cleaner for there reasons:
(1) It heats the water to a higher temperature. For every 18 degrees F, you double the water’s cleaning ability. So if the water temperature is 136 degrees F, it will clean twice as well as water that is 118 degrees F.
(2) A truck mount carpet cleaning machine applies the cleaning solution into your carpet at higher pressures, which breaks up the dirt, bacteria, chemicals and pollens. 300 to 400 pounds per square inch is the optimum pressure for truck mount hot water extraction.
(3) A truck mount carpet cleaning machine uses a stronger vacuum to extract the dirt, chemicals, bacteria, pollens and tobacco smoke residue out of your carpet.
Not surprising, having your carpet thoroughly cleaned with a truck mount hot water extraction costs more than renting a shampooer at the grocery store.
If you want your carpet to look good and give you years of dependable service, then you need to take extra good care of it. This means you need to have it cleaned by a skilled and qualified technician at least every six months to one year, depending on the amount of soiling and foot traffic it receives. And you need to have it cleaned thoroughly and disinfected, as only a truck-mount hot water extractor can do
