Carpet cleaning machines such as vacuums and scrubbing machines not only clean dirt from carpets nowadays and can be used to clean a multitude of other surfaces and materials around the home or indeed in a commercial or industrial environment.
Single Surface & Multi-Surface Machines
There are many manufacturers who research and develop intelligent cleaning machinery which can clean all kinds of surfaces such as laminate, tiles, carpets and varnished floor boards. Some machines are developed to also be able to clean ground surfaces found in washrooms and warehousing such as laminate safety flooring and even concrete. Whilst other manufacturers focus their efforts on perfecting the performance of individual machinery tailored made for the cleaning of one surface type.
Carpet Cleaning Machines
The majority of carpeting cleaners have been designed to do just that, clean carpets and to a high standard, some do it better than others, whilst some dry the floor after cleaning using a wet process or clean in a way in which less water is used so that the drying time is lessoned such as steam cleaners.
Dirt Removal Fluid Application
Some brands of carpet cleaning machines require the operator to manually apply solution to the areas of the carpet which need more attention. Whilst more high-tech machines have been developed to inject carpet cleaning liquid deep into the carpet pile which enables them to achieve better results.
Other Surfaces Which Can be cleaned by Carpet Cleaners
Other than carpets, some specially designed carpet cleaning machines are able to clean rugs, upholstery, car interiors as well as hard floor surfaces such as laminate wood flooring, tiles and even domestic garage floors such as concrete and laminate flooring.
Additional Cleaning Functionality
The types of carpet cleaners which have been designed to cope with wet floors and spillages are able to fulfil other cleaning solutions besides including the unblocking of small domestic drains and cleaning up after leaking pipes or a washing machine. This type of cleaning machines is able to cope with fluids as well as other objects and generally stores the liquid collected separately within a handy detachable water tank for easy disposal.
The ability to complete cleaning tasks involving water is a clear advantage over other machines as most homes and businesses have a variety of surfaces which need to be cleaned regularly, such as lino and tiled floors in kitchen and food preparation areas and wooden floors in other areas.
