A Guide to Industrial Carpet Cleaners

Industrial Carpet Cleaners
Carpet cleaners are used for residential and commercial cleaning purposes, as well as for industrial cleaning applications. In general, machines used for industrial cleaning are more powerful and sophisticated than the other machines, as the greatest cleaning power is required.

The following is an overview of the functioning and features of industrial carpet cleaners.

How They Work

Carpet cleaners first inject a mixture of water and a cleaning solution into carpets, mats, or upholstery. This liquid mixture filters through the outward surfaces of carpets to weaken the bond between impurities and the carpet fibers. Carpet cleaning machines are equipped with a wand, which is used to agitate the surface and extract dirt residues formed by agitation.


Quality carpet cleaners can provide temperatures of up to 210°F. However, some machines can provide only non-heated output. While, non-heated systems are cheaper and lighter, they do not offer the same level of cleaning power as heated carpet cleaning machines.

Carpet cleaning machines, such as the XTreme Power® XPH-9600 from Daimer®, are ideal for industrial cleaning applications. This machine features a pressure level of 500 psi and high hot water temperatures up to 210°F. Featuring auto fill and auto dump technologies, these machines can be used continuously for longer time intervals. In addition, special low flow technologies help carpets and upholstery dry much quicker, in as little as two hours.

Performance Enhancers

The efficiency of these machines can be increased by using green chemicals as cleaning solutions. These products are safe for the environment, as well the carpets and the operator. One of the most powerful and environmentally safe carpet cleaning formulas available on the market today is Eco-Green® Carpet Care & Upholstery Cleaner supplied by Daimer®. It is recommended to pre-spray carpets with this solution before application of a steam carpet cleaning machine for best results.

Daimer®, a well-known distributor of cleaning products offers both green chemicals and carpet cleaners. For learning further details about the benefits and other features of a wide range of cleaning products, visit

The Importance of Low-Flow Carpet Cleaners

Low-Flow Carpet Cleaner
Low flow technologies in carpet cleaners helps reduce the amount of water needed for the cleaning process. The more water that is used, the longer it will take the carpet to dry. Excessive water consumption, besides affecting the environment negatively, has other disadvantages as well. The excess water that flows into storm drains can attract fines from environmental protection agencies. If you are working on the client’s premises, using too much water can leave the area wet and sloppy. This makes you appear unprofessional and may hurt the business.

Another problem with using too much water for cleaning carpets is that carpets take long to dry. For carpet cleaners using high amounts of water, drying time can be as long as 24 hours, depending on the humidity and temperature. Using minimal water to clean carpets reduces drying times to four to six hours. This prevents growth of molds, fungi, bacteria, and pests. Damp upholstery also causes bad odor. With quick drying times, the risk of odor is reduced, as well.

Heated carpet cleaners are the most effective carpet cleaning solution. They use high temperatures to remove stains and odors from carpets. However, low flow carpet cleaners do not need to not use hot water for effectiveness. The XTreme Power® XPC-9200 is a non-heated carpet cleaner with low flow technology, which facilitates faster drying. The powerful vacuum extraction (150-inch water lift and air flow of 200 cfm) capability also helps in cutting down drying time. A dual jet carpet cleaner wand offers more cleaning power.

In addition, Daimer® offers eco-friendly cleaning chemicals for added cleaning power. By adding the Eco-Green® Carpet Care & Upholstery Cleaner to your carpet extractor, you can boost the cleaning power of both heated and non-heated machines. Daimer® also suggests pre-spraying carpets with this Eco-Green® solution before applying a carpet cleaner for maximum efficiency.
