Truck Mount Carpet Cleaning Equipment

Truck mounted carpet cleaning equipment have been around for decades. These powerful carpet cleaning machines are used in many professional carpet cleaning businesses throughout the country. At one point in time, truck mounts were the #1 choice for professional carpet cleaners. The power and convienence of using a truck mount far outweighed the cost of the equipment.

Today, some professional carpet cleaners still choose the truck mounted equipment. However, the percentage of professionals who now use a truck mount has dramatically shrunk over the last decade. Why? Many reasons...

Here are some reasons carpet cleaning companies are moving away from truck mounts and to high powered portables:

1) High Gas Costs - It costs and arm & a leg to run your truck mount

2) Higher Insurance Costs - Face it, there is more liability (tripping over hoses, hot hoses outside, etc) and higher equipment costs to insure.

3) Repair Costs - Equipment breaks down. It is usually much quicker, easier, & cheaper to fix a portable vs. a truck mount.

4) Closed Door Policies - Many commercial establishments require the doors to be shut and locked after hours. Unless you have a paid security guard, you can't do the job with a truck mount.

5) Environmental - You can't dump your dirty water in the rainwater sewers in the street. So, many truck mount operators get a permit to dump at the local dump site. How much time is wasted every day traveling to the dump site and waiting in line to dump? Also, everyone is going "Green." A portable is much more environmentally friendly than a truck mount.

There may be some instances a company still wants a truck mount (ie. dual wand system - see 25hp & 30hp Dual Wand Truckmount Here).

However, many professional carpet cleaners could save time, money, and build an "environmentally friendly" carpet cleaning business with a machine like the Eclipse High Powered Portable Extractor.
