Carpet Cleaning System Cost Comparison

There is no way to argue with numbers. Oscillating Pad Carpet Cleaning Machines do not just clean better, they are considerably more cost effective. The Oscillating Pad Machine Carpet Cleaning System is not only less expensive to purchase than a truckmounted carpet cleaning system, but it is also far more cost effective to operate.

An Environmentally Safe Cleaning System

Another appealing aspect of this unique carpet cleaning system is it's environmentally friendliness. Unlike a truckmounted carpet cleaning system, which runs off a gasoline powered engine and emits harmful exhaust fumes into the atmosphere, the Oscillating Pad Carpet Cleaning System runs on electricity and emits no harmful fumes.

"The proper comparison to the Challenger is the machine called the Instigator. It costs several hundred bucks less and comes with a brush driver which is nicer than the solid velcro on wood one on the Challenger.

Either of those is ok for smaller resi work and could do small commercial work. But don't expect to average much over 200 sf per hour with the Challenger, often less if its trashed or berber.

The Commercial Breeze is really a different class of machine. I own one and I own a Challenger, and I use the Breeze basically whenever it's not a problem to get it into the house (breeze weighs about 89# and The Challenger around 60) because imo it digs deeper, faster.

If the job is just a room or two and not too dirty, or there is a ton of furniture to clean around, or a lot of going up stairs, etc, then I consider the challenger. Though if I had a 15" breeze I'd prefer that for these situations.

I think there's been talk of this comparison before. You might be able to track it down in a search."
