Two Carpet Cleaning Machines In One
New TASKI procarpet range supports interim encapsulation and deep extraction cleaning in single design
Two new innovative TASKI machines from Diversey Care simplify carpet cleaning by enabling interim encapsulation and deep extraction capabilities in a single design for the first time. The new TASKI procarpet 30 and TASKI procarpet 45 remove the need to purchase separate machines for these two critical carpet care tasks, saving capital, supply chain and storage costs. The advanced design of the machines ensures they are simple to use, promote productivity and offer lower total cost of ownership while delivering excellent performance and results.
Regular vacuuming together with interim encapsulation cleaning and periodic deep extraction cleaning are the three core tasks that promote effective and sustainable carpet care to maintain cleanliness, hygiene and appearance. Interim cleaning helps keep carpets looking better for longer and extends the interval between deep cleaning which generally requires more drying time.
Using its experience and expertise in chemical application and vacuum pick-up technology the design team at TASKI has devised a unique concept that combines encapsulation and extraction capabilities. Operators can now select a single TASKI procarpet machine yet retain the flexibility to choose the application that best suits their needs based on turnaround time and soil levels.
The new encapsulation function supports fast and efficient intermediate carpet care. Operators simply add the all-new formulation TASKI Tapi Shampoo to the built-in solution tank. The machine is then run back and forth over the carpet in its encapsulation mode to apply the correct amount of solution and agitate the pile so that the product can reach the soiling more easily. Soiling is broken down and captured by the product which dries quickly to form a powder which is picked up using a conventional vacuum cleaner. The carpet is out of commission for a minimal time and can be returned to use as soon as it has dried and vacuuming is complete, typically within around half an hour.
When deeper cleaning is required, the TASKI procarpet is simply switched into its extraction mode using a button on its console. A suitable product from the extensive TASKI Tapi range is added to the tank and applied to the carpet as the machine passes over. Agitation promotes soil breakdown and ensures excellent penetration of the product into the pile to reach and remove even the deepest soiling. The machine’s suction pick-up mechanism extracts the soiled solution and the carpet is left to dry before it can be used again the following day.
The TASKI procarpet 30 incorporates a 30 litre tank and a 30cm mechanism which makes it ideal for small to medium carpeted areas. For medium to large carpets and intensive operations the TASKI procarpet 45 has a 45 litre tank and 45cm working width to cover bigger areas more quickly. Noise levels below 70dB(A) mean the machines are quiet enough to operate close to the public without causing undue disruption to support emergency, opportunity and daytime cleaning tasks. The technology and cleaning products are approved by the independent Carpet & Rug Institute (CRI) and Wool Safe to provide operators with additional assurance.
Accessories supplied include a carpet wand and hose to access hard-to-reach areas, hand tool for upholstery cleaning, adjustable handle for operator convenience and comfort, and a parking lever which raises the brush off the floor to reduce the risk of damage and make transport and storage simpler and safer.
Like all other machines in the extensive TASKI range the two new machines have simple, ergonomic controls to promote ease of use with minimal training requirement. All routine service points are readily accessible and clearly marked in bright yellow for easy identification to promote the regular care and maintenance that leads to reliable and life-long performance.
