What Equipment

We are starting out and wish to know what equipment you guys are using for carpets cleaning. We are focusing on residential and small business.

We have looked at a Rotovac package and a couple of different Oscillating Process type equipment. Although price is always a factor when purchasing this king of thing, it is not our main objective.

We want the equipment to be relatively light, portable and something that cleans carpets, no tricks or gimmicks.

We want a machine that does the work.

I have called about 10 suppliers and all are talking me into a state of confusion.

Your help is appreciated.

To clean a carpet, first have all the equipment in place. This includes carpet cleaning supplies, machines and accessories, which can make the job simpler. Select equipment depending on whether you want to clean or deep clean a carpet or simply remove a stain.

Thanks

Basically we have decided to do just that. No hurry and a business never should rush out to buy the latest and greatest.

Really, what we are looking for is a peice of equipment that is fairly portable and does a real good, but quick cleaning job. It should also be usefull for other things as well. There are quite a few out there.

We may move up to the rotovac 360 with a different portable. Depends on price etc....

It is in the UK so customs, duties, and shipping would kick my wallet very hard. Also I think UK electrical runs on 220. We use 110 here so that would also have to be converted and approved by CSA.

The rotovac is a wonderful tool in conjunction with a strong portable or even better a entry level Truckmount. My company carpet cleaning los Angeles has and uses the rotovac on all heavily soiled carpets with great results.

Rotovac is a very useful tool that use very much in carpet cleaning. To remove stain from carpet it is necessary to determine whether it will need simple cleaning or deep cleaning. Once you have analyzed that what type of cleaning it needed you can apply accordingly method.

The best suggestion I can give you is to get a used truck mount and van that you can pay cash for. Keep your overhead to a minimum. Learn how to market your services as that is the most crucial part of the whole thing. Having great equipment is nice only of you have jobs to go to. This is what we did at carpet cleaning Tampa.
