Professional Carwashing & Detailing

Wand maintenance

August 28, 2013

Many carpet-cleaning professionals have a little secret I would like to share with carwash professionals: A carpet extractor wand, along with hand tools used for cleaning carpets and upholstery, can be almost as important as the extractor itself. And in the case the wrong wand is selected — one that is uncomfortable to use or simply does not perform well, no matter how powerful and efficient the extractor — it may be difficult to complete auto upholstery and carpet cleaning to your satisfaction … or your customers.

Although wands have few moving parts, they still require some maintenance to keep them operating at tip-top performance. If the wand has filters, these should be cleaned along with the jet openings. Review the wand’s manual, where you will also find troubleshooting suggestions, on how these and other maintenance tips should be carried out.
