How Does Auto Detailing and Carpet Cleaning Equipment Work?

When setting up a business for auto detailing and carpet cleaning, you should at least know how the equipment works before buying it. Although, the equipment from many popular companies comes with a manual and user guide, still it would be better to understand the workings of the machinery before buying it. This way the buyer would not only know what he is buying but would be able to better understand the various facilities offered by the equipment.

Carpet cleaning equipment is generally available in various sizes but the two most popular are the portable one and the truck mounted one. To use a carpet cleaning machine, the user would have to first prepare the surface of the carpet and then apply cleaning agents to help get rid of stains and dirt. Then it is used to spray pressurized water and cleaning solution (if necessary) onto the carpet’s surface. The wand of the carpet cleaning equipment is used to agitate the surface of the carpet to remove dirt and stains. Different carpet cleaning equipment sets provide different types of wands for different surfaces. These are extremely helpful in clearing out dirt particles and removing stains.

Carpet cleaning equipment includes a tank for storage of water, different types of wands, pumps to pressurize water, vacuum and drying unit and an optional heating element unit to heat water. Older cleaning systems did require several hours for drying the carpet. However, with development in technology, modern cleaning equipment systems can get the job done in only 2-3 hours.

Compared to the carpet cleaning equipment, auto detailing equipment is more sophisticated and requires great care in operation. It can be split up into two parts i.e. exterior detailing and interior detailing. Exterior auto detailing means to clean, wax and then polish out the exterior of the vehicle. It includes the polishing of car body, rims, windshield, mirrors and other external objects in a car. Interior detailing refers to the cleaning of the passenger compartment of the car.

Washing of seats, cleaning of carpets, dashboard and other interior polishing, vacuuming and steam pressure cleaning are standard procedures involved in auto detailing. Different kind of equipment is used for external and internal auto detailing and thus you should be careful while buying. Some auto detailing service providers might also provide engine detailing service which is generally used to prepare cars for motor shows and includes the use of similar auto detailing equipment as exterior detailing equipment.
