Is Truck Mount Carpet Cleaning Best?

truck mount cleaner systems

When looking for professional Boise truck-mount carpet cleaning services, Jim recommends to first find a local cleaner using hot water extraction.

Hot water extraction (also known as steam cleaning) is the best method for cleaning carpets. Flooring Professionals agree steam cleaning is best because it WILL NOT VOID YOUR CARPET WARRANTY!

There are two types of carpet cleaning machines that can be used for hot water extraction. A portable carpet cleaning machine and a vehicle mount equipment. Whenever a truck mount is available, it’s by far the superior option. Van mounted carpet cleaning machines have significantly better suction, heat, and pressure. This leads to a more thorough, faster sanitation with shorter dry times.

Maas Carpet Cleaning & Restoration is the best truck-mount carpet cleaner in Boise and the surrounding areas.

Not All Vehicle Mount Carpet Cleaning Machines are Created Equal

For providing Boise rug cleaning services, there are a wide range of truck mount carpet cleaning machines. The quality of work and reliability between machines also varies greatly.

  1. Some are small residential units with 15-20 horsepower.
  2. There are larger commercial mount units (such as the units we use) with 25-35 horsepower.
  3. Finally there are huge steam cleaning machines with 60 horsepower car engines designed for massive industrial jobs or giant water extraction needs.

These huge industrial carpet cleaners are in most cases overkill for smaller jobs and produce too much heat to not be used in dual wand operations.

We’ve found the sweet spot for both residential carpet cleaning and commercial floor cleaning to be in the Sapphire Scientific 570SS machine. This truck mount carpet cleaning machine offers huge suction. It also provides up to 1,500 PSI of continuous pressure and 3 heat exchangers to create hot, constant heat.

Why Our Truck-Mounts Make Us the Best in Boise

Long Reach

Our truck-mount carpet cleaning machines can pull vacuum for up to 600 feet. We carry 600 ft. of hose to take advantage of that reach. Smaller residential machines are lucky to pull vacuum half of that distance (many even less).

For Boise carpet cleaning services, this means we can park in a safe place, and that we can carpet clean office buildings reaching the farthest corners, even in huge spaces.

Hot Water

When it comes to van mounted rug cleaning services, Maas Carpet Cleaning can provide plenty of heat to clean carpets right. Effective, professional carpet cleaning requires hot, consistent heat.

When you wash your dishes with hot water instead of cold water, its significantly easier and more effective. In the same way, hot water is vital to getting your carpets as clean as possible. Heat is also lost over long hose runs in smaller machines.

Having machines that can put out more heat than we could ever need makes sure we can do the job right. Even with long hose runs for floor cleaning large buildings. High heat is also vital for other tasks like tile cleaning or other hard surface cleaning. Like the dish washing example before, cleaning surfaces with hot water vs. cold water is infinitely more effective.

Pressure Cleaning

Many smaller residential vehicle mount cleaning equipment has a maximum sustained pressure of 1,000 PSI or less. While that may be adequate for carpet cleaning, we can deliver 50% more pressure than “the other guys”. This makes a huge difference in getting your tile and grout lines cleaned. The same applies for cleaning concrete or other hard surfaces.

New Equipment & Well Maintained

Like all heavy-duty equipment, all truck mounted rug cleaning machines have a useful life. Estimates vary on how many hours this is and how long a company can keep their old machines limping along. At Maas Carpet Cleaning, we prefer to avoid ever getting close to the point of ineffectiveness. We replace our equipment that no longer functions at full capacity.

You want Boise’s best carpet cleaning services. Those carpet cleaning services can’t be delivered on under-powered or beat up old carpet cleaning machines. We see it all the time – “carpet cleaners” using rusted out, outdated, beat to death truck mounts and equipment. Secondarily, we see companies trying to hack it in the commercial space using small, under-powered mounts or portables.

Place your trust with Maas Carpet Cleaning to bring the right, modern, well maintained equipment and to be the best steam cleaner in Boise.

When is a Portable Carpet Machine Needed?

Whenever possible, Maas Carpet Cleaning uses a truck mounted carpet cleaning machine for it’s superior washing abilities. There are certain limited instances, however, where using a truck mount carpet cleaner is not feasible.

For the most part, portable carpet machines should only be needed for tall, multi-story buildings or other limited access scenarios. Once you get beyond the 3rd floor, pulling hoses for a vehicle mount starts to get difficult (though sometimes it still is possible for another floor or two).

When faced with these challenges, Maas Carpet Cleaning can still provide the best portable carpet cleaning services in Boise. We use our portable machines in high rise offices, carpet cleaning condos, or carpet cleaning apartments. While not as strong as our van mount carpet cleaner, we can still do a great job with providing the best portable, Boise carpet cleaning services.
