Education and knowing what you are doing is more important than owning equipment. There is a lot to learn in carpet cleaning. One thing I do know, it does not matter if you own a $50,000 carpet machine or a $100 one if you do not know the process to use and or what chemicals to use. There are several ways of cleaning carpet. From using an electric scrubber with a bonnet on it, to a shampoo machine, dry carpet materials with a vacuum, rental extractors, to big super vacuum and powerful truck mounts. Example of what I mean is that when I had a small portable extractor , I was doing a better job than some of my competition with the big truck mounts. Why? Because I went to several classes and learned all I could. I later went to big truck mount because of the speed, the increase in psi which allowed me to also do ceramic tile, the heat exchanger, the solution meters and so on. It is much more than the small extractors were. But if I did not learn how to mix chemicals properly, how and what to use when, then it wouldn't matter what type of equipment I had.
So please , before you just try reading the labels, find a class to attend. Check with IICRC for a class close to you.
Of all the different cleaning services I offer, I find that carpet cleaning is more of a science of cleaning than any other type of cleaning we do.
I would like to add carpet cleaning to my business. I've had several customers ask me about it. What equipment do I need in order to clean carpet. Is a extractor all I need?
Well, You will need Vacuum cleaners, Steam Cleaning Machines and Brushes. When you need any carpet cleaning equipment, it is necessary to deal with the quality of any carpet. Long pile shag carpet will need a different technique of cleaning than the rugs that approximate indoor-outdoor carpet.

Carpet-cleaning equipment is expensive, but it is necessary for deep cleaning your plush floor coverings. While some choose to buy this equipment, others do not see it as a necessity. After all, carpet manufacturers recommend deep cleaning your rugs only once or twice a year. Carpet-cleaning equipment is expensive, but it is necessary for deep cleaning your plush floor coverings.

Carpets are not maintenance free. They must be vacuumed regularly and deep cleaned. Vacuuming is an easy enough task, but deep cleaning requires the proper equipment. By knowing how to compare carpet cleaners, it is easy to select the right machine and clean your carpets like a professional.

Some antique carpet need special care, I have Persian antique carpet made of stain resistant wool material any spills should be wiped immediately to prevent them from trapping dust. What I use is moist cloth or hair shampoo spray for effective cleaning. Do not spray insecticides on antique carpets as they contain chemicals compounds that may deteriorate the stain resistance properties or even cause discoloration of the carpet.
The key to success is the carpet cleaning equipment you will use for your rug cleaner business. Poor quality, residential-use carpet cleaners are not likely to provide the productivity and cost benefits that your business requires. There are dealers who rent out carpet cleaners to carpet cleaning businesses that cannot afford to purchase a commercial carpet cleaner at the very outset.
