Many people who buy carpet washer machines focus mainly on the performance-related aspects. For example, they focus mostly on output temperature level, quality of the material used to make the machine, and price. While it is important to take a detailed look at these aspects, it is also vital to offer the same attention to some of the other factors.
One such factor is drying time. It refers to the time taken for the surfaces to dry up. It is a major concern for all types of carpet cleaning tasks.
Why drying time is important?
Drying time is important while using a carpet washer due to two reasons. First, the carpets and mats are ready to use quickly. Take for instance, the case of carpets inside a vehicle. If the carpets and mats dry up quickly, the vehicle can be used immediately.
The second benefit relates to the cleanliness of the surface. Wet surfaces, as a norm, attract dirt and dust more quickly. Wet carpets are a major reason for many people falling sick every year. Diseases, such as asthma, lungs blockage, and many other problems related to breathing, can be spread due to bacterias residing in carpets that are wet. The fungal growth taking place in such carpets can even start affecting the environment after some time.
So, if the surfaces become dry quickly, they are likely to stay clean for a longer duration and you will definitely stay safe and protected from these bacterias. How can a carpet washer help the surfaces to dry up quickly?
There are two options, heated output and low flow technology.
Some of the new carpet washer models offer the option of heated output. These carpet cleaners have heating elements that can raise the output temperature up to 210ºF within only 5 minutes. Carpet wash systems with a heated output dry up the carpets quickly. It may be added that carpet shampooer machines with multiple heating elements increase the speed of the cleaning process. These machines reach the maximum output much quicker than various ordinary machines.
Low flow technology
Carpet machines equipped with this technology have many advantages. They transfer less water to carpet and mat surfaces, as compared to other machines. Since the carpet surfaces absorb less water, these surfaces dry up very quickly. The technology also helps save on water consumption.
How do portable carpet machines with low flow technology achieve shorter drying time?
This technology puts control over the flow of water through the hose. It limits the quantity of the output of the carpet cleaning equipment. However, it does not reduce the output pressure or efficiency of the machine. It simply helps the carpet cleaning equipment to use less water for cleaning.
The reason for the development of low flow technology for carpet shampooer machines is to shorten the drying time as much as possible. The combination of both these aspects, heated output and low flow technology, helps a carpet cleaner to reduce the drying time to the lowest possible value.
