USED CARPET CLEANING EQUIPMENT

Whether buying second hand hand carpet cleaning equipment or new,  the No 1 rule in any purchase should be:

You want to make sure the equipment you purchase is good quality and that should a breakdown occur spare parts are readily available.

If the decision is made to purchase used carpet cleaning equipment, the following checklist will assist with your purchasing and help protect your investment.

A visual inspection of the equipment often gives clues as to how well the carpet cleaning machine has been maintained.   Make sure the machine is clean internally as well as externally.

Check all filters, pump and waste tank.

Run the carpet cleaning machine through all operating functions.  Check auto fill and auto pump out.  Ideally use the machine on a small job.

While in operation, check for noises from the vacuum motors as these regularly suck in foam which caused damage.

If the machine has tile and grout cleaning capabilities, test with the tile spinner that you will be using.  If the tile spinner is also second hand, check the jets.  Jets can be maintained but still need to be replaced on a regular basis.   Brass every 6 months, stainless steel every 12 months.

Check whether the carpet cleaning machine has been regularly serviced by a professional repair company.  If so, it is well worth a phone call to them to check on the machine.

Obviously buying a second hand carpet cleaning machine does not mean you have the 12 month Manufacturer’s warranty and the comfort of knowing that there are no ‘hidden’ surprises but there are advantages.  If the machine is a good quality brand, has Australian customer support, including fully stocked spare parts and has been well maintained the cost saving is well worth it.
