Why Rotovac? The best power head for high performance cleaning.
Here at Carpet Pro Cleaners we have recently undergone a tremendous upgrade by outfitting all of our vans with the Rotovac 360i carpet restoration system. Having the Rotovac on board and the ability to dispatch it to the most heavily soiled carpets in The Triangle, has taken our cleaning services to the next level and renewed our commitment to raise the industry standard.

The manual scrub wand is the professional carpet cleaning instrument that most people are familiar with. It has been around for decades and is widely used by our competitors. At Carpet Pro Cleaners, we still carry manual scrub wands and use them in certain circumstances as required. The wand is a good cleaning tool for cleaning lightly soiled carpet; however, when it is used to clean more heavily soiled carpet, the wand can require an immense amount of effort from the technician in order to receive satisfactory results. The repetitive motion of scrubbing back and forth is extremely strenuous and fatiguing. When cleaning results become this dependent upon the strength, stamina, and technique of the person working the wand, service quality can vary.
At Carpet Pro Cleaners we were not comfortable with this potential for variability in our service quality. We made the decision to upgrade our equipment to the Rotovac 360i to address this concern and provide our technicians with the most state of the art and effective tools on the market.
The Rotovac Difference
The Rotovac 360i is an electric power tool. Comparing the Rotovac 360i to a wand is like comparing a skill saw to a handsaw. Rotovac 360i has converted a back and forth manual task to a much easier and more efficient rotary mechanized operation. It would take the strength and energy of several men to accomplish what the Rotovac 360i can. One of the fundamental aspects of the cleaning process is agitation. Agitation is the friction needed to loosen the dirt and grime particles allowing them to be removed from the carpet. Scrubbing the heavy traffic areas and spots is often required. With the traditional wand, you’re left with a single back and forth motion and the strength, technique and stamina of the technician working the wand. The Rotovac 360i makes more cleaning passes per minute than is possible with a manual scrub wand. In addition, the cleaning passes are from all directions rather than just back and forth.
The Rotovac 360i also controls toxins that can be released when steam is applied to carpet. Of course Carpet Pro Cleaners use only cleaning products free of toxins, but using a traditional wand can fill the air with harmful vapors from cleaning chemicals left behind by other cleaners. This health hazard is avoided with the Rotovac 360i, which encapsulates the entire cleaning process under its metal hood.
Put simply, the Rotovac 360i produces better cleaning results with far less operator fatigue. The counter-rotating cleaning heads of the Rotovac 360i allow it to glide back and forth over the carpet with an easy one-handed operation, very similar to using an upright vacuum cleaner. Using the Rotovac 360i allows our technicians to achieve a much deeper clean, cover more area in less time and keep the cleaning, scrubbing and vapors underneath the cleaning head.
