Properly Cleaned Carpet

Maintaining carpets can often be a challenging job.  To do it right often means using a good commercial vacuum with strong CFM and agitation to pull up all debris that finds its way to the carpet. This is an important first step that prevents items from being further crushed or spread around later on in the carpet cleaning process. The job is not done at this point though. The next step in professionally cleaning involves a carpet extractor. Using a good carpet extractor will then allow the cleaning crew to dig deep in the carpet and pull out dirt, liquid and any other debris that has embedded itself deep down in the carpet and around the carpet fibers.

To perform this task a carpet extractor can come with a variety of options and features. The first, and one of the most basic, is whether it’s a hot water extractor or cold water extractor. With these options you may be able to add hot water to the extractor, which can help provide a stronger and deeper clean of the carpet,  or one with cold water.

Another heralded feature on carpet extractors is PSI, which is a measure of power and force seen used on the carpet. Specifically it measures how strongly the carpet extractor will extract the water that used to clean. They can range from 100 to over 500 P.S.I. in a particular machine.  For those with basic carpet extractor needs a cold water extractor with low P.S.I. may be perfectly adequate.
