One of the great disadvantages of carpets is that no matter how often you vacuum, there will always be residual dust and dirt. Over time, this dust will become harder to remove and can lead to a carpet looking aged and even start smelling. Hygiene can also become an issue over time dependent on the environment.
Regular carpet cleaning, whether in commercial or residential environments is essential to ensure that it lasts longer, remain hygienic and looks near new. There are many types of home use carpet cleaners, but for regular use on large carpet areas, there are advantages to using a professional grade machine. Here are some of the primary reasons.
Cleaning Head Size
Professional carpet cleaners will come with much larger cleaning head sizes. This means that you will be able to cover a lot more carpet area in less time and much less effort. The size of the cleaning head directly impacts the price as well, among other aspects, but if large areas of carpet need to be cleaned on a regular basis, then it makes sense to invest in the largest cleaning heads.
The spray jets are built into the cleaning head and the more jets there are, the more precise, and even the application of the cleaning solution will be. High-end professional machines will come with interchangeable or adjustable jets so that they can be set up for different types of carpet and thicknesses.
Some carpets may require a very gentle spray to avoid damaging it, while heavy wearing industrial types will need a powerful and targeted jet to ensure full penetration.
Professional carpet cleaning equipment will also have a powerful motor that lets you adjust the output power through the spray jets. For heavy-duty commercial carpets or heavily soiled ones it is very important to have the cleaning solution sprayed into the carpet with significant pressure to ensure full cleaning. This will also reduce the need for multiple cleans to get a carpet fully cleaned.
Broad Selection Of Cleaning Solutions
Home and DIY cleaning equipment will have significant limits as to the types of cleaning solutions and chemicals that can be used. For many commercial or larger areas of carpet, there can be the need for very specific cleaning materials to be used. Professional machines will be able to cater to all types of chemicals, making sure that the carpet is fully cleaned or disinfected.
