Forum Title: Definitive list of carpet cleaning equipment
I would like to know what equipment I should purchase when starting a carpet cleaning business. I want to purchase portable cleaning equipment (vs truck mounted). I'd appreciate a complete list including recommended machines, solutions etc. I have a tight budget, so I want the list to include only the best value or must have equipment. Not interested in any franchise opportunities. No Spam comments please!

I am not a portable guy but, I do know that everybody really seems to like Mytee portables for carpet cleaning. You are going to spend about $5000 IMO to get what you really need to start professional carpet cleaning. Once you get busy you will want to step it up to a TM so you can take on more work each day. I started our company carpet cleaning orange county from the ground up 17 years ago and now we are a top service provider in our county.

How much more efficient is a TM vs porty? What would be the time difference given the same size area? 1/2 the time? 1/3 the time?

If I had to get a portable I would probably do like a M5 with air hog booster and then some kind of fuel fired heat.....by the time your done you should just get a truckmount. Is it imperative that you carry the machine into the customers home? (high rise type situation? If not go TM you won't regret it.
