Carpet Cleaning Equipment for Homes. What's in your domestic Cupboard?
We all have an arsenal of cleaning appliances in our homes these days, but not all of it does a good job at cleaning. But if there is an one example of steadfast cleaning equipment product that has made its presence felt in nearly all American homes, it is the humble vacuum cleaner. In fact, it's the only carpet cleaning equipment used in most homes although some folks now invest in carpet steam cleaning devices too.
I remember we got our first vacuum cleaner nearly two decades ago. At that time, cleaning equipment were just making there presence felt in households across America. Till them, the mop and the sweep were all that were available under the name of cleaning equipment. But the vacuum cleaner changed all that. I still remember with childlike fascination how the cleaning equipment salesman introduced our family to the wonders of the vacuum cleaner.
All of us in the family gathered to watch as the cleaning equipment hummed and sucked in all the dirt. Of course, the thrill came about when he showed us the blower function of the vacuum cleaner. Since it was and has always been my job to rake up the leaves, I was thrilled that I could use this new fangled cleaning equipment to make the job that much easier.
For weeks afterwards, my siblings and I fought with each other for the privilege of using our very own sample of cleaning equipment. We fought tooth and nail in order to be able to use the vacuum cleaner while our mother watched on with obvious and very evident amusement. Even now I laugh whenever I think back to how naïve we were! But the novelty wore off soon enough and I am a much wiser human being now. Wild horses couldn’t drag me to use a vacuum cleaner nowadays! And when it comes to cleaning around the house, I nearly always manage to find some inventive way to avoid using the vacuum cleaner!
But getting back to cleaning equipment, I recently visited a friend at his factory and happened to some absolutely fascinating varieties of cleaning equipment. I must tell you that he works with one of the biggest manufacturers of industrial cleaning equipment not only in America, but all over the world. In any case, I stood transfixed and amazed by how many varieties of cleaning equipment there actually were! Apparently industrial cleaning is a really big business nowadays. I had always assumed that most industries employed armies of cleaning people with basic cleaning equipment to keep their office surroundings clean.
We use a small force of people equipped with vacuum cleaners and trolleys to clean our office. But here there were sit-on industrial vacuum cleaners, floor polishers, water based cleaning equipment, specialized window cleaning equipment , hot water cleaning equipment, foam based cleaning trolleys and in short, the biggest and the most fascinating collection of cleaning equipment known to man! I even saw a sample of the snow cleaning machine (it looked remarkably like a Zamboni) and other cleaning equipment used to clean especially slick oil spills and other effluents that manufacturing units normally contain. In front of these mammoth cleaning equipment, the vacuum cleaner of my nostalgia looked almost puny!
