What is missing?

Post by milspec6 on Mon Jan 25, 2016 4:01 pm

What is that one tool, chemical, accessory, etc. that is still missing from this industry? You know, that one item that you keep asking yourself why there hasn't been one invented every time you finish a week of work.

I'll kick it off with a few ideas?

1. Fully remote controlled truck mount....even one controlled by a phone app and bluetooth.
2. A tool dedicated to cleaning the whole stair without all the work that it presently takes.
3. A tool / chemical that can quickly remove badly embedded gum.
4. A really quiet carpet vacuum that actually works.
5. Ceramic jets with 95 - 110 degree spray patterns.
6. A trouble free metered injection system that doesn't require parasitic vacuum to operate.

I am very serious about numbers 1, 3, 5, and 6 by the way. I also realize that Hoover built number 4 decades ago, but the public didn't buy it because the lack of noise made them believe it was due to a lack of power. Truth is that most of the vacuum cleaners are built noisy on purpose. I would like to see that change.

So, what are your thoughts?

I envision something that would spray/scrub carpet that is light weight and yet quite effective.

Actually, Ken, you make a good point. A scrubber doesn't need to be heavy if it has the right attack angle.

Think of a CRB that was mounted with a rake angle instead of riding flush with the floor. It would just dig instead of pressing to get the job done.

That might very well be a great design shift right there.

With the technology we have now, I don't understand why carpet manufacturers can't produce carpets that resist ALL stains, or chemical company that can produce one product that can clean ALL stains instead of having 3 different chemicals to remove different stains.

The chemistry limitations I understand. The carpets not being able to resist all stains probably is a matter of choice....they do want to sell more carpet to you in a few years after-all.

I agree Mo, which is also why being well skilled at removing them can make or break a cleaner. I like to think that experience helps here...at least that is what I tell my customers.

Yeah this is true !
My point with carpets that resist ALL stains is that when we pre spray the stains, it would be gone, I guess kind of like stain master carpets but better, it will resist Kool aid and rusts and furniture stains and pet stains, etc.

I made one of those years ago for myself, called it the Sprush, as in spray/brush...........too much manual labor though.

Its been made before but a newer version of a wand that has a brush roll

similar to a crb but much smaller brushes and vac line would be able to collect all the debris.

also it would need to be battery powered, which is also my #2 needed invention.. the battery powered rotary.

batteries are more than strong enough to run one all day long, very light ones could do it too
