Using a carpet shampooer/extractor is a wonderful way for reviving soiled and stained carpets. It is also a great way for allergy sufferers to minimize symptoms, especially when moving to a new residence. An extractor is a machine that injects a cleaning solution into a carpet and then extracts the dirty solution back out. A shampooer sprays the carpet, then agitates the fibers with a rotating bar or spinning brushes. The best of both worlds is avilable in a combination of these actions! The shampooing action gets rid of tough stains, while extraction helps carpets dry faster. Also, the solution tank for the clean water is seperate from the recovery tank which collects the dirty water.
