We pair this suction with a custom Vortex heating unit that uses the diesel engine to heat our steam up to a constant 230 degrees! A typical heating element in a carpet cleaning system usually reaches 160-180 degrees, and it isn’t always consistent. Every 18 degrees doubles your cleaning power, meaning cleaner carpets with less need for chemicals. Another added bonus?!? — most viruses require anywhere from 165-212 degrees to be killed. With Pure Results, you will have the peace of mind knowing you’ve gotten your carpets as clean as possible!
