Complete Job

Stain Removal
How much dirt can be removed and how dry are the carpets left? The greater the hose diameter the more air flow you create, resulting in dryer carpets. Increased heat helps to more effectively break down soil, grease and other spots for more complete removal. Increased flow allows more dirt to be washed away. Time is very important to us all. So why waste time when better results can be achieved efficiently.

Rug Doctor or Vax Domestic Machine carpet & upholstery cleaning machine

Hire Machine


40 - 60 CFM

Resulting in over wetting, extremely long drying times, poor results. Yellowing or browning to the carpet fibres due to over wetness, severe re-soiling as detergents are left in the carpet. Risk of shrinkage.


¾ Inch to 1 Inch

 Very restrictive hose that limits airflow resulting in very wet carpets.

Drying Times: 12 – 36 Hours


60º - 90º F
Tap Water Hot


Not enough heat to create any sort of cleaning power.


35 - 50 PSI

0.4 Ltr/Min

Poor water pressure resulting in not enough penetration to clean deep down into the carpet fibres meaning most dirt is left behind.


2 Hours

An average room will take up to 2 hours just to clean the carpet, let alone to set the machine up, fill up with detergent and water and then not forgetting the drive to and from the hire shop. All this just to achieve poor results

1 Hour

 Same sized room but this time around an hour to complete, With this set-up you have the complication of them using your water, your electricity and then there’s that disgusting waste water that goes down your toilet.

Also a key point is the air born mites and dust particles that are drawn up through the vacuum and expelled into your house.
