What Is The Real Cost of Professional Carpet Cleaning Equipment?

Shopping for truck-mounted carpet cleaning equipment often comes down to price, but determining what is included in the purchase price is often difficult. Does the standard model provide everything needed to clean or will you have to spend additional money before you can actually work?

Operating expenses must be considered as part of the realistic cost of any equipment. An advertisement in a trade magazine compared the operating costs of a drive-line unit versus an engine-driven machine. Maintenance and operating costs over a five-year period for gasoline, oil, oil filters, tune-ups and depreciation totaled $19,105.00. For the engine-driven model, the cost was $7,487.00. Neither unit offered a prospectus for down-time and cost of repairs.

If this chart had included a Bane-Clene system, the only item on the graph would be depreciation. There are no operating costs with electricity. Average maintenance costs would be less than $200 for five years.

Don’t forget intangible items that should include technical and marketing support available from knowledgeable people on toll-free telephone lines. Proven advertising and professional brochures can put you miles ahead of your competition. Complete training should be provided for the owner and staff. A complete line of safe, effective chemicals should be available to use with the equipment.

With many systems, the cost is far greater than the price you pay. When you look at the total package, the cost of a Bane-Clene system won’t even be remembered when the machine is running trouble-free twenty years from now.
