Carpet Cleaning Machines

Posted on October 20, 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.

Dry Carpet Cleaning Machines

Dry cleaning carpet machines clean a carpet without using a liquid detergent. It is usually used to clean carpets that are made of fine fibers, because it prevents moisture build up and damage to the carpet. The solution used in a dry carpet-cleaning machine is a powder-based substance that is sprinkled or sprayed on the carpet evenly, left to dry and then vacuumed to remove the dirt.

Any time you use a dry carpet cleaner; you should always vacuum your carpet first. If there is a wet spill on the carpet, make sure that it is dried before using the machine. A wet spot can prevent the machine from working properly and prevent the cleaning solution from working properly. The whole idea of a dry carpet cleaner is that it uses low moisture to clean. The cleaning agent is only a 10% water mix. This eliminates the problem of over wetting the carpet and there is no need to worry about shrinkage, buckling or mildew. The dry carpet cleaning method works much faster than hot water cleaning, and the detergent are environmentally safe. Dry carpet cleaning is one of the safest ways to clean a carpet. Dirt is sucked into the machine and the carpet is cleaned in an efficient manner with less of a mess. The cleaner has various attachments including brushes, foams, sprays, powders, etc. It is safe to use on most fiber carpets and it is extremely powerful. The circular motion of the vacuum tank extracts the toughest dirt and is very effective in high traffic areas like living rooms and dens.
