Frequently Asked Questions About our Cleaning Services
The manual scrub wand is a good cleaning tool for cleaning lightly soiled carpets. When cleaning more heavily soiled carpet, the wand becomes a "beast of burden". Cleaning results depend upon the strength, stamina, and technique of the person working the wand. Cleaning heavily soiled carpets with a scrub wand is 'hard labor'. The repetitive motion of scrubbing back and forth is extremely strenuous and fatiguing. An individual can not scrub long enough to effectively clean your carets.
First and foremost the Rotovac is an electric power scrubbing tool. Comparing the Rotovac to a wand is like comparing a skill saw to a hand saw. We have converted a back and forth manual task to a much easier and more efficient rotary mechanized operation. Which makes more cleaning passes per minute than is possible with a manual scrub wand. In addition, the cleaning passes are from all directions rather than just a back and forth. This is what produces better cleaning results for you.
Does the Rotovac work on all types of carpet?
The Rotovac has a carpet pile height adjustment which allows it to work on all installed over pad carpet, and most commercial glue downs.
What is the dry time of the Rotovac compared to a wand?
The Rotovac on average leaves the carpet about 20% drier when compared to a manual scrub wand under similar conditions.

Let me start by defining the difference between a spot and a stain: a spot is a foreign material (soil, liquid,etc.) that is removable by standard cleaning methods.(The foreign material is on or around the carpet fiber) A stain is foreign matieral ( Kool-Aid, bleach,
dyes, etc. ) on carpet that is not usually removable by standard cleaning methods. ( The foreign material has penetrated 'soaked into' fiber and has changed or damaged the fiber itself ) Some stains may be very difficult or impossible to remove.
