  • What is the best? Need advice...

    I am looking for the best machine...

    I would like to make a little side $$$. I am looking for a machine
    that is totally reliable and can suck the front end off a semi, without
    causing damage to the carpet...is 500 PSI safe for carpet? I want to
    be able to turn some of the worst looking carpet back to new again,
    so I am only looking for the best, or pretty damn near the best...

    I am sorta looking at the mytee-m5. is it good, does it suck, any recomendations?

    http://www.steam-brite.com/store/myt...mp-p-7576.html

    If i choose this machine, I would need a heater, how does
    the heater attach to the machine? and what is the best
    heater for this machine?

    I am also looking at the:

    Mytee: Bentley Carpet Cleaning Wand (Free Shipping!)

    Other then 2" difference, how does this differ from the
    12" wand included as perforance is concerned?

    I also noticed a 50' hose is included, what is the industry
    standard? 50' hardly sounds like enough, what is the full
    lenth of hose this machine could effectively use?

    is there a multi purpose want for carpet and tile?

    I am also curious to the best chemicals to use, the last
    guy that come over said he used ordercide, and he
    said it was top of the line at $95/g? is this true?

    I noticed this site seems to have a crap load of chemicals, which
    is just confusing.. I am just looking for the best...not an entire list...

    I am looking for the top of the line deo, carpet cleaner, spot/stain, protection, order removal,
    urine removal that one can buy, what is the best?

    any recomendations?

    Thank-You much.
    David

    because of pets, I call the carpet guy over 3-4 times a year, and one
    of the last guys that come over, cleaned my carpet, and aftward told
    me he was charging me extra...and left a lot of ordor...

    I think I could buy this thing, and do a damn bit better job then him, and
    clean other carpets as well, so not only would I be saving from hiring
    someone that does a crappy job, and could make some on the side also..

    does steam brite offer any type of financing...?

    Mytee M-5 extractor

    I like the M-5 except for the Velcro waste tank filter system and the auto dump pump. The supplied filter bag is a joke but can easily be replaced with a draw string style for just a few dollars more. The auto dump pump is only for cleaning and will never handle water extraction work. The M-5 with heat is three power cords. The 6 stages of vacuum will handle 75 ft of hose if you use 1.5" hose and 150 ft with 2" hose. Why do they add auto fill and dump in such a large machine? If it is auto fill and dump, why not stick these features in a smaller body style? Their is nothing wrong with this machine, these are just some things I have noticed. The 500 psi pump will clean carpet at 250 psi and only rinse tile (not clean tile - please note the difference) You mention cleaning over 100 ft and more suction, then please look at the Goliath extractor. This machine is 8 stages of vacuum and uses a 20 gallon per minute stainless steel auto dump pump so it can handle flood restoration. Couple this with a 1200 psi pump and you will can clean tile and air ducts too. The system comes with or without heat and if you want heat you can have electric or diesel (preferred). The electric heated system is 4 power cords and the diesel system is only 3 power cords. When you run diesel you can use heat all the way up to 1200 psi, while the electric heater is only rated for 500 psi. For example the vacuum and auto dump system is currently on sale for $1799 and the 1200 psi pump and diesel burner is another $1799. From here you need to add the hoses and tools you want. With any 3 and 4 power cord extractors, please consider the 220 volt electric dryer plug converters that prevent you hunting down different circuit breakers.
    The Bentley wand cannot be run with the M-5. The water pump is too small. I will operate on the Goliath system. I also would be afraid to try to pick up that much water with only 6 stages of vacuum.
    By the way Mal-Odorcide does work well but it is only $59 a gallon - not $95.
    A lot of people like to clean urine spots with KnockOut Urine pretreatment. Rinse with Flush, then post apply Odor Bugs enzyme deoderizer. For regular cleaning, prespray with Powerhouse mixed with a little Kyrponite. Scrub and then rinse with a little Flush. If you any spots to deal with, just put a couple of drops of Dry Cleaner on them and re-rinse. 95% of the time the Dry Cleaner takes it out.
    Steam Brite does offer financing. Right now we have a 7.9% rate for 60 months with a 1% origination fee. Your payment is 2% of what your loan is. For example a $5000 loan is $100 a month.

      before i continue with the next line of questions. I have a credit score of around 600, I think one score is 650+, would this be enough for like $3000-3500 line of credit?

      is this the machine you are talking about:
      http://www.steam-brite.com/store/ste...er-p-6271.html

      its not pretty, but if it can do the job, then i am ok with that.

      Thanks

        credit score

        I do not have any idea at all what kind of credit score is need for finacing. We also have leasing companies that can work with lower end credit scores to get you a loan when we cannot directly.

          I understand donald..I have full cash to buy, but i prefer not to use
          all cash if i can help it, I will contact one of your finance com****es,
          maybe they can at least finance some of it, and I can pay cash for
          the rest, who knows, maybe I will get lucky...

          now for the questions...

          This is a 500psi machine correct? I do not see it on the specs...

          Please explain what auto dump is...

          4 power cords? So i have to plug this machine into 4 outlets?
          how can a home handle this much without blowing fuses or circuits?

          220 volt electric dryer plug converters that prevent you hunting down different circuit breakers.

          Please explain this better, hunting down different circuit breakers? I am a little vague
          on the 220 electric dryer plug, does this mean it plugs into the dryer plug?

          I assume this machine comes with nothing...please help me configure
          a starter package, please include links to what I need.

          for hoses/lines, I would like 50' and 100' - please provide links to
          the correct hoses/lines for this model.

          please provide a link for the best/widest wand for this model. if I am
          too upgrade the tile later on, will I be able to use a 1200 psi wand now?,
          even though the machine is 500psi, and I would use the same
          wand for carpet and tile?

          I do not really understand the 220 volt electric dryer plug, but
          I assume this will be important.

          I would not require the 1200 psi for tile at this time, maybe
          it would be a good add on in the future.

          I do require a electric heater...is this already installed,
          or would I have to install it?

          If I need any other tools, please provide links for this machine.

          I would also like to do upholstery, what tools/accessories
          will i need? please provide links.

          Thank-You
          David

            ok, no response yet...

            I am trying to line up some chemicals..you guys tell me what you think...

            Kryptonite
            Hypercide
            Everfresh Oil Deodorizer
            Odor Eliminator
            Urine Pretreatment Plus
            Urine Stain Remover

            are these products good? do they work good? afterall, the goal
            is to get the job done, so the customer will either refer me, or
            call me back...but if all this crap, then I end up with unhappy
            customers...

            would like some opinions...

            Thank-You

              Mytee M5

              Mtyee M5 is a 800 psi head mounted on a 450 psi motor. The cleaning pressure would be between 250 psi to 400 psi depending on the size and number of spray jets you want to use.
              Auto dump means the machine dumps the dirty water out of the waste tank at the same time you are cleaning. The idea is that you can clean without having to stop every 15 minutes to empty your dirty water and then re-fill with fresh water. Clean non-stop.
              4 cord comment: Power consuption is in direct response to cleaning effectancy. The more power a machine uses, the faster and cleaner you can get a carpet. Yes you can operate 4 corded machines on less power. You can operate a four corded machine on one power cord, or two, or three, or four. It is up to you. If you don't want to use the heater because you are scared it is going to trip the breakers, turn if off. If you want to use 2 vacuum motors instead of four vacuum motors, you can do this too. You will just have to use less hose and note the carpet will dry like other cleaning machines that only have two vacuum motors in it. Most part of the country have electric dryer outlets, electric stove outlets and electric commercial coffee machine outlets, water heater outlets, hotels use a special AC outlet, Pizza Hut has a heating lamp outlet, Burger King has an outlet for cooking the meat. Most of these outlets have enough power to run all 4 of your power cords. I ran a machine that used 5 power cords for 20 years and hardly ever had a problem hooking up all the power cords.
              We have lots of packages for different things you want to clean. Please email my at info@steambrite.com your budget and the types of surfaces you want to clean and I will email you back an example of a order.
              This machine is only strong enough for a dual jet 12" wide wand. This is not the same wand as a tile wand. You would have to purchase a separate tile wand for this machine. Please note a 500 psi pump is only strong enough to rinse a tile floor not clean it. Another words you would have to prespray and prescrub the tile first before using this machine to rinse the floor (like with a RC-5 Raptor classic wand)
              As far as chemicals, our website only reflects about 10% of what we sell. 90% of the items we sell still have not made it online. Once I get the list of surfaces you want to clean, I can include the chemicals on the example invoice.
              Mal-Odorcide is not $95 a gallon, we sell it for $59 per gallon. - Yes same stuff.
