Vacuum Cleaners: Carpet Care Auckland 

Vacuum CleanersThe essential tool within the carpet cleaning industry is the vacuum cleaner. 

Generally, vacuum cleaners are available in shapes and sizes and are designed for various cleaning applications. Indeed, vacuum cleaners have two categories, which are two primary groups. Undoubtedly, vacuums are for the removal of dry soils and the extraction of liquids. Besides, multiple attachments are available for use combined with most vacuum cleaners, each designed for specific cleaning jobs.

Furthermore, all these factors make vacuum cleaners the most multipurpose and indispensable cleaning tools of the trade. The proper vacuum unit choice and the appropriate attachment for the cleaning task are significant.

To correctly choose the right combination, the operator must first understand the basic principles, precisely how a vacuum system functions. Our technicians trained with IICRC and ASD use the most advanced and effective commercial truck-mounted steam carpet cleaning equipment to achieve the best results.

Therefore, call the Pros Steam N Dry Auckland Carpet Cleaning service. We’ve operated since 1988 in locations like West Auckland, North Shore, East, South and Central City CBD.

Importance Of Vacuum Cleaner

Vacuum cleaners contain a vacuum motor assembly that acts as a blowing fan, making a vacuum behind itself. Because a vacuum is unnatural, the air fills the void. This in-rushing air moving through the fan creates airflow and suction needed for vacuum cleaning. Indeed, vacuum Cleaning, in a nutshell, is the removal of soil from a surface using suction. 

Vacuum cleaning to remove dry soils is a form of sweeping. The effectiveness ratings of a vacuum cleaner should be based on airflow and suction. The relationship between horsepower and cleaning power has reached the point where informed consumers and operators view horsepower ratings with scepticism. When looking at horsepower ratings, one must determine whether the horsepower applies to airflow or suction.

A vacuum cleaner that removes dry soils has a high airflow and relatively low suction ratings. A vacuum cleaner mainly designed to remove liquids would have low airflow and relatively high suction ratings. 

Having ratings on airflow and suction is practically impossible, but a high average compromise is possible. The wet-dry vacuum cleaning systems remove both wet and dry soils from surfaces.

Suction vs Airflow

Airflow relates to air volume and is entirely different from suction. The airflow of vacuum cleaning systems is measured in cubic feet per minute or CFM. This measure points out how many cubic feet of air a vacuum motor can inhale and exhaust without restriction within one minute. 

For instance, a high-efficiency vacuum cleaner for dry soil removal on carpets might be able to move 156 CFM. In contrast, a high-efficiency vacuum cleaner mainly designed to remove liquids might only have the ability to carry 88 CFM.

Suction measured in inches of water lift’. It is how high a vacuum motor can lift a column of water one inch in diameter within a tube. At that point, no airflow is there, only suction. Individual handheld vacuum gauges for measuring ‘inches of water lift’ are available for measuring the suction of vacuum cleaners—a high-efficiency vacuum cleaner for dry soil removal on the carpet. For instance, it might have an ‘inches of water lift’ rating of only 12″. 

In contrast, a high-efficiency vacuum cleaner mainly designed to remove liquids might have a rating of 150″. Hence, the balance between the CFM rating and the “inches of water lift” rating of a vacuum cleaner determines its most appropriate cleaning application.
