Tom: Tell them about the equipment. What carpet cleaning business start up kit do you need to get started?
Col: Okay. Basically, you need some sort of a hot water extraction machine. You’ve got to start with that. There is other machinery that you can tack onto the side of it, so scrubbing machines. You need an upholstery tool, of course, to be able to do upholstery cleaning, and just a few sprayers and a few things like that, so it doesn’t take much equipment to actually get you started.
Tom: It sounds a little bit complicated, so if you can just try to simplify that for the guys. Are we talking about a hot water extraction portable machine, if I get the terminology right?
Col: Yeah. That’s an electric machine. That’s a good starting machine. An electric machine will get you started. You can do two jobs a day easily with an electric machine. If you wanted to spend a lot more money and buy into a truckmount machine, you can probably do a little bit more work.
