Carpet Cleaning Machines

Posted on December 12, 2017 in Uncategorized

With the invention of Carpet, the invention of a Carpet cleaning machine was not far away. The first hand held Carpet cleaning machine was designed and tested in the 1860’s in Chicago, while the first power operated vacuum machine was invented in the early 1900’s by an English man named H. Cecil Booth.

At around the same time as H. Cecil Booth’s invention, a man by the name of James Murray Spangler came up with his own vacuum cleaner invention, which he later sold to his cousin Hoover. As you well know, Hoover has become one of the most prominent names in the vacuum cleaning machine business and is certain one of the most popular household names in the western world.

The vacuum cleaner was heralded as a blessing in disguise for many housewives, whose weekly task it was to keep the house clean. Initially, vacuum cleaners were only capable of sucking up dust and dirt, but with modern technology inventors were soon capable of designing a wet-cleaner that can steam carpets and kill germs.

Carpet was capable of covering the floor of a house, flat, or bungalow and keeping peoples feet warm in winter. Initially, people needed to sweep their floors, or carpets, but with the invention of the vacuum cleaner, people could easily detract the dirt and dust from their carpets with less effort. It was also realized that businesses, apartments and corporations would need someone to clean their carpets too, so the invention of the commercial carpet cleaners was next.

Essentially, the vacuum cleaner operates using a pump system. The pumping device sucks up air from a house, which in turn sucks up the dust and dirt from anything in front of the house opening. Inside the vacuum cleaner is a filtering system that collects the dust and dirt that can later be placed in the garbage outside.

Currently there are seven main types of vacuum cleaners; the upright vacuum cleaner, the Canister vacuum cleaner, the back-pack style vacuum cleaner, the built-in vacuum cleaner, the robotic vacuum cleaner, the hand held vacuum cleaner and the wet/dry vacuum cleaners. These different types of vacuum cleaners are available in different styles, sizes and have various voltage/power potentials.

One of the most significant developments in carpet cleaning machines has been the invention of the cyclone carpet cleaner. Unlike previous carpet cleaning machines, the cyclone carpet cleaner collects dust and dirt in a large cylinder type container. The cyclone carpet cleaner operates using a central air force and a number of filters. These filters filter the dust and dirt into stages, so that the air being sucked up into the cylinder container can then be cleaned and re-released into the air through a central outlet.

Robotic vacuum cleaners are also a relatively new invention, enabling the carpet to be cleaned by a carpet cleaning machine without the need of people power. Using a simple control mechanisms, the robotic vacuum cleaner can navigate its way around the floor of an apartment, or home, cleaning dust and particles from the floor and then return to its docking station for re-charging.

Carpet Cleaning Machines Work Only When Used Right

Make sure you understand the capabilities of cleaning machines as well as how they operate to prevent the feeling of disappointment. Some of the cleaning machines that are ready to use with personal means are not as good as professional ones. Professional machines are far better then what you see in other personal machines. But for some people, they expect a professional looking job when they use it for the first time in their life.

Rented machines can make your carpets look good. For that, you have to follow all the directions that come with the machine. Companies that rent this equipment also recommend certain products be used with their equipment and by using something else’s any warranty on the carpet cleaning machines’ results may be voided. Typically, when you rent a machine the business handling the rental will also sell the needed supplies. Be sure you have the right cleaning products for your machine.

Make sure that you read the directions and follow them explicitly while you are using some machines, if you have never operated carpet cleaning machines before. Do not take for granted because it looks like a vacuum cleaner that it will work like one. You will be wetting down the carpet with cleaning solution and failing to remove it all could result in damage to your carpet.

You can do the work in less time if you do the appropriate work

There will be a lot of work to do first, before renting the cleaning machine. All the furniture that is in your room should be moved before rent the machine. You will be renting the equipment by the hour and the time you spend moving furniture and vacuuming will be wasted rental fees. Picking up the equipment should only be done after all the preparations have been made so when you get home you can fire it up.

Read all the directions first before you start doing what it says. Now you can start the cleaning process. Some of the carpet cleaning rentals says to their customers that they should use the brushes in the same direction throughout the room to find the best results. If you have passed across the entire room with the head of the machine, now you should go back over it 90-degrees from the original cleaning path. This way you will be sure to cover any small spots that you missed the first time with the carpet machine.


Choosing a Carpet Cleaning Machine

Posted on December 7, 2017 in Uncategorized

When I was given this task to write about how you go about choosing the right machine for your operations, I thought to myself “this is going to be boring.” As I started thinking about it more and more I thought it should really be told in a story form. It would keep it interesting and more people could relate with it. So, I set out to write a short story about my 19 years and how I went about choosing and at times stumbling into finding machines.

After graduation from college with a Bachelors in Marketing, I was faced with a widespread recession. I managed to get a job and start saving for that business I thought I would run one day. Seven months into the job, living with my wife and a roommate in a one bedroom apartment, I managed to save $5,000.00 to start a business.

Back then, there was no Internet. I practically lived in the library researching what kind of business I could start with the little money that I had saved up. There aren’t that many businesses that you can start with the amount of money that I had. Somehow, I narrowed it down to carpet cleaning.

It was really hard back then to get good advice. Today, I would just type in “carpet cleaning supply” on the Internet and 1000’s of results would come up. I knew that I couldn’t really buy a machine that cost more than I had saved up, so I started looking locally for suggestions.

With a little research and a prod from my wife, “if you’re going to do it, then you might as well do it now,” I picked a portable machine for around $3,200.00 and was on my way. Luckily, the machine came with supplies and I had some money still left over for marketing.

I want to keep the focus of this article towards carpet cleaning machines, so I won’t go into too many tangents that are otherwise important but not the focus of this article. I used the machine for a few years and learned a lot more about machines. I learned why truck mounts were better. Mostly better because of the speed they provided the user.

About two to three years into my cleaning career, I started to do two to three jobs a day. I found I was working twelve hour days very often. One night I was cleaning the carpets of a sugar factory. It wasn’t inside the factory, but the adjacent offices where the employees desks and offices were. From the sugar combined with dirt this wasn’t a dream job as you can imagine. It took all weekend to clean what should have taken me a few hours. The results were also not to my liking. So the following Monday I called a salesperson from a local carpet cleaning supply store that was trying to sell truck-mounts to me for a while.

I totally trusted the company and their salesperson. That week, the salesperson came out to my house and did a demonstration. I was impressed with the quality and the speed. For some reason, people had “brainwashed” me to believe that truck-mounts that use hot water extraction, or “steam cleaning” in layman’s terms, over-wet the carpet and that the carpet could get damaged. None of this was true. I could now see myself working less while making the same amount of money. So, I signed on the dotted line and agreed to lease the machine for 60 months for $370.00 a month.

My sales literally exploded after a few months of ownership. I was doing more jobs, I was able to hire help and pay the help well. Within a few months I agreed to lease another unit and in another few years I had five truck-mounted carpet cleaning machines and fourteen employees.

Besides the machines there were other things going right for me as well. My first child was on the way and this gave me a lot more determination to succeed and my Bachelors in Marketing was also a great asset.

Since I decided to write this article in an unconventional way, by telling a story rather then listing pros and cons, I’ll let you draw your own conclusions from my story.
