TENNANT Company has released the 1610 Dual Technology Carpet Cleaner. It uses ReadySpace technology, creating clean carpet spaces that are dry and ready for foot traffic in 30 minutes or less. It also has carpet extraction capabilities for periodic restorative cleaning.
With regular use ReadySpace products remove soil before it becomes embedded, leaving carpets cleaner over time and reducing the frequency of restorative extraction.
Sprayer units apply water to two counter-rotating fabric rollers that turn about 400 times a minute, picking up the soil from the carpet. As the rollers turn they are rinsed with a solution spray and a built-in vacuum extracts the soil from the rollers. The rollers are rinsed with a solution spray and a built-in vacuum extracts the soil from the rollers.
Very little water reaches the carpet because the carpet is never actually sprayed with water. The machine's restorative extraction function incorporates two counter-rotating brushes that separate soil from both the front and back of carpet fibers in one pass.
