The carpet you see in these photos was obviously much dirtier than the average. The reason for this is to demonstrate the dramatic difference between the cleaning ability of a wand vs. Rotovac Powerwand.

To make the carpet this dirty, it was simply sprayed with water and then dragged around a dirty parking lot.

Using the same portable extractor and the same chemical, one portion of the carpet was cleaned with a wand for two minutes and then right next to it with the Rotovac Powerwand for two minutes.

When cleaning with the wand, notice that the technician is bent over in an uncomfortable position. Results depend on the amount of elbow grease and number of cleaning passes he is willing or able to make.

The operator applied all the effort he could and made approximately 120 cleaning passes. How long he could sustain that cleaning pace would depend on his strength and stamina.

Cleaning with the wand is strenuous, physical labor.

When cleaning with the Rotovac, notice that the technician is standing in a comfortable, upright position. He is easily guiding the Rotovac with one hand while the Rotovac supplies all the elbow grease for him.

The Rotovac reduces the task of extraction carpet cleaning to an easy one-handed operation.

In just two minutes the Rotovac produced 3,000 multi-directional cleaning passes!

Bottom Line: The Rotovac Cleans Better

There is simply NO COMPARISON between the two.

Perhaps due to extra cost, maybe only 5% of ALL carpet cleaners use such equipment. Whether you hire us or a competitor -- look for this vital piece of equipment.


Don't settle for a wand cleaning Insist on the Rotovac!
