Pictured on the right is one of our van-mounted carpet cleaning units. Machines that are ideal for domestic carpet cleaning. Portable steam cleaning machines on the other hand are utilized in high-rise buildings.
As in professional rug cleaning, carpet steam cleaning in Perth can be carried out either with a truck mounted machine or with a portable steam cleaning unit. There are limitations as well advantages to both machines.
For example, a truck mounted unit is just that, a unit that is mounted in the back of a van or a small truck that can also be used for upholstery cleaning, tile and grout cleaning and in emergency situations where you have flooding in your home. The one and possibly only limitation to a ‘truck-mount’ is that the unit is not portable and therefore unable to be used in high rise buildings.
One major advantage to truck mounts is that they produce superior extraction during the steam cleaning process as opposed to portable units. Being able to extract as much water whilst cleaning a carpet is vital in order to achieve the best possible result. Van mounted units also produce their own heat which can be regulated by a cleaning technician. Pictured on this page is one of our Prochem Blazer XL machines, considered to be one of the best brands in the cleaning industry.
Portable steam cleaning machines are versatile, they can indeed be used in high rise buildings as the units themselves are not mounted to vans. Portable units however do not have the same extraction power as truck mount and that is possibly the only disadvantage to portable steam cleaning cleaners.
In order to achieve satisfying carpet cleaning results, it really comes down to how machinery is used and how the steam cleaning process is applied. Having a bigger more powerful machine does not necessarily mean that your carpets will be cleaned to the highest standard possible.
Regardless what the difference between the two machines might be, our goal at Steam Or Dry is straightforward! Our priority is to professionally steam clean all carpets in a cost effective way in line with Woolsafe and Australian standards.
