CFR portable extractors demonstrate savings

September 20, 2011

CFR has released new studies regarding the water and chemical use of one of its most popular machines, the Cascade 20.

The system filters and recycles water/cleaning solution up to seven times as the machine is used. The technology was developed more than a decade ago. However, due to today’s increased concerns about sustainability, water conservation, chemical use, and cost savings, it is receiving greater attention now than when first introduced. The first comparison focused on how often the machine had to be emptied and refilled versus its competitors. Stopping to empty and refill the machine takes time, slows down the carpet cleaning process, and adds to costs.
