The Importance of Value and Price

Price is what you pay. Value is what you get

When you select a carpet cleaner, you'll choose from a wide variety of cleaning methods
and prices.


Shaw Industries, the world's largest carpet manufacturer, recommends hot water
extraction from a truck-mounted unit, and using a portable unit only in areas where the
truck-mounted unit won't reach.

Here's why: A truck-mounted unit cleans much better than a portable unit for three
reasons:

(1) It heats the water to a higher temperature. For every 18 degree increase in
temperature above 188 degrees F, you double the water's cleaning ability. So if the water
temperature is 136 degrees F, it will clean twice as well as water that is 118 degrees F.
154 degree water will clean four times as well as 118 degree water. And so on, until you
reach a water temperature of 250 degrees F.

(2) It shoots the cleaning solution into your carpet at higher pressure, which breaks up
the dirt, bacteria, chemicals and pollens. 300 to 400 pounds per square inch is the
optimum pressure for truck-mount hot water extraction.

(3) The machine uses stronger suction to draw the dirt, chemicals, bacteria, pollens and
tobacco smoke residue out of your carpet.

Not surprisingly, having your carpet thoroughly cleaned with truck-mount hot water
extraction cost more than renting a machine at the grocery store.
