A recent survey of carpet cleaning technicians has found that some have experienced injuries while using carpet cleaning equipment when working at both residential and commercial facilities, according to a press release.
The January 2012 survey was conducted U.S. Products, a leading manufacturer of professional carpet cleaning equipment. As of February 3, 2012, 69 respondents had completed the survey.
Asked which type of portable carpet extractor-conventional box or upright dolly design-is the easiest to transport, two-thirds said an upright dolly design machine is the most mobile. Twenty-two percent voted for conventional box machines, while the rest reported they were unsure.
When asked if they have ever experienced an injury using a portable carpet extractor regardless of the type, slightly more than 74 percent said no; 26 percent responded yes.
