When you picture a man cleaning carpet, what do you see? If you’re like me, you envision someone pushing a wand over carpet with a hose running along behind him. Where did this image come from? It comes from the past. This is the way carpets used to be cleaned.
You will still see a lot of “wand users” out there today, but they are slowly being replaced by more efficient ways of carpet cleaning. Twenty years ago the carpet cleaning industry was revolutionized by a company called Hydramaster. They invented what is called the Rotary Extractor. This amazing machine combines three spray jets with five vacuum slots. It makes over 650 passes per minute. Powerful scrubbing action and agitation release soils. The rotating head cleans all sides of the carpet fiber, fluffing up and restoring the pile. The tremendous benefits of this patented cleaning process were instantly recognized and embraced by the carpet cleaning industry leaders. The Rotary Extractor has been tested and proven to be the most effective on-site carpet cleaning process ever developed.
The machine weighs over seventy pounds. This weight helps it to reach far down into the carpet so that it receives a deep, full cleaning. And it doesn’t get tired by the end of the day. In the past, a wand could only reach as far down as the user was able to push. Surface cleaning of carpets was the most one could hope for, and you hoped for a morning appointment at that!
Because of its powerful suction, carpets cleaned with the Rotary Extractor also dry much faster. Whereas wand cleaning can leave carpets wet for a few days, Hydramaster’s new and improved cleaning method allows carpets to dry in one day or less.
Consistency, muscle, and deep-cleaning all wrapped into one amazing machine. Some changes really are for the better. Remember, Aaron’s Quality Cleaners is the best carpet cleaner in Fresno and Clovis!
