6 Tools Used by the Carpet Cleaning Industry

Posted By Tubro Carpet Cleaning || 5-Dec-2014

When your business is in need of carpet cleaning services, you need to find a company with experienced technicians and these 6 tools:


A vacuum’s job is to pick up dirt, crumbs, garbage, and other debris on your floor. If you haven’t taken the time to do this before the professionals come to clean your carpets, they may have to do it for you before they start the rest of the cleaning process.


A buffer uses rotary discs to apply products to your carpets. Specifically, you may find your carpet cleaners using a buffer to shampoo or apply absorbent powder to them.


When most people think about carpet cleaning, they picture a steamer. These machines require minimal chemicals, so it’s safe for children and pets. A small amount of water is heated and used to steam mold, bacteria, and other things hiding in your carpets.


A defoamer possesses a pressure tank that uses minimal moisture to clean. Without extra moisture, your carpets will dry faster, and you won’t have to worry about mildew or mold growth later on.


Depending on your carpet material and the condition that it’s in, your carpet cleaning technicians will determine the right products that you need to treat and clean them. They can help you choose the following:

  • Shampoo—Choose one that won’t harm your carpets.
  • Deodorizers—These can be applied to keep your office smelling fresh and clean.
  • Antimicrobial treatments—These are used for buildings that have dealt with water damage or excess moisture to prevent mold from growing in the layers of your carpet.
  • Pretreatment—For your heavy-traffic zones, carpet professionals can apply strong pretreatment products that will help lift the dirt from the area.

Truck-Mounted Unit

Unlike the equipment that you might rent to clean your carpets, professionals in the carpet cleaning industry use a truck-mounted unit to get the power needed for maximum efficiency. Oftentimes, companies will also possess a portable unit for high-rise buildings. If you are located in or near the Seattle area, contact Tubro Carpet Cleaning to schedule our technicians to come to your house and determine which tools are the right ones for the job.
