All, I have read a few threads and am a carpet extractor fan, and am looking for advice. I am a home owner, that wants to do carpet cleaning in the home as preventative maintenance. Ie. upholstery, car interior, and interior carpets (every 6 mo), maybe some work for friends and family. I am looking for an entry level portable device, and that will handle these tasks. My budget would be anywhere from $1500 to $2300 all included. I am willing to consider a used or refurbished machine. Any makes, models, or where to buy would really help me out. Please help a newbie out. I am in Fort Worth Texas. Thank you.
