Prochem waves wand over quicker cleaning
The cleaning accessories offer from Prochem Europe has been expanded with the introduction of the Powermate 1200 extraction power wand - and feedback from the marketplace has been unequivocal.
Domestic cleaners report that it makes cleaning house carpets quicker; contractors like the way it breaks more down soil than basic wanding would and improves productivity; housekeeping teams appreciate its light weight and ease of use around beds, desks and other hard-to-reach areas.
With self-levelling cylindrical 2500 rpm brush, 12in. high-impact vacuum head and 25ft power cable, this unit does away with back strain from constant wand passes and scrubbing, while tripling cleaning times.
Attachable to any extraction cleaning machine, the Powermate sprays solution while the 1/12hp electric motor powers a mechanical Tynex roller brush that agitates and breaks down heavy soiling, with waste sucked back into the machine's tank (a see-through front plate even enables you to watch the soiled water being extracted).
Heavily-soiled traffic lane carpet in commercial environments pre-treated with a suitable prespray benefit enormously from the Powermate. Leave the soiled area for up to five minutes, turn on and run the extraction pass using a carpet rinse detergent.
For commercial contract cleaning, domestic/residential cleaning or housekeeping, the Powermate is set to make life easier.
