Decisions, Decisions...
 
Are you in the cleaning business?...the appearance business?...or the profit business?
 
Which system do you feel your customer would choose if given a choice?
 
 
Should I say more?
 
Maybe we should call this conscience cleaning.
 
P.S.
Keep in mind that most cleaners who OP clean charge well in excess of HWE cleaners.

OP is extraction Cimex is not. with cimex the extracting is done with a vacuum. apples to apples or apples to oranges.
 
The critical part of Cimex cleaning is the dry vacuuming. If you want to scrub and run then yes orbot is way better.

Within the last 15 years competition from low priced competitors and changes in technology have reduced the companies market share. Hoover vacuums have recently become more competitive with application of new bag less technology in its upright series and diversifying into other floor cleaning products.

I've got a question for you Cimex guys.  I recently bought a 19" Cimex for commercial work where applicable and I really like the speed and results.  However, if I come back after it's dry and vacuum I get very little in the vac bag (and yes, I am using a good commercial vacuum).  Is this typical?

I have done the exact same test as you with the exact same results.

I guess we now both have our answer to how much soil this system really removes regardless of how clean it makes it look.

People still want to see the dirt. Scroll up and you will see the unit you should have purchased to satisfy your customer and your own conscience.

I guess they need the breathalizer to look more like an instrument and less like a bottle. LOL

Hello you dry vac before and after. How much would you really expect in the after vac if you did a proper dry vac before?
 
C'mon you guys know what % is dry.

Trouble is if it looks clean, the customerr's happy. If it is cleaner but doesn't look it they're not.

Does that make sense? Confused

Unless there's a lot of debris on top of the carpet I don't bother now I have a TM. But when I used the Speedster I would prevac every time.

The argument that if you pre vac then you can't expect much in the bag post clean is a bit of nonsense to be honest. What it was referring to was the removal of encaspulated dirt.

If there ain't much in the bag it's still in the carpet.

I agree that machine is more appropriate for a janitorial company. Now if you could ride it like a Zamboni. Maybe I would buy one.Steering

The problem with giving the janitorial co. any carpet cleaning device is simple, if vacuuming is involved "GoodLuck" We do millions of sq ft of commercial carpet maintenance and not one of our buildings is ever vacuumed properly..  EVER Ever!!!!!!!

Just sit in on it and have your assistant OR the customer push you around on it.
