We used the backpack vacs in schools, but in the summer when we did the carpet cleaning, we vacuumed with an upright with a good beater bar. No doubt, that beater bar helped remove more soil from the carpet.
We had a few custodians that dug their uprights out of the dumpster and hung the backpacks in the closet to collect dust.
I think I’m a pain in the ass to work. I’m asking them to confirm with ISSA if this was indeed their intent. Honestly I think one MIGHT get away with using a backpack on most occasions. IF a monthly pile lift happened
Another issue I put in my email is felting. Even you truck mount Boys pull out your CRB’s to pull out the hair and crap.
Could you imagine a high use area and never using any type of beater bar? If you can’t I can send pictures.
I’m waiting for ISSA reply.
