For those who do not know, the Steamin Demon is a High Flow Extraction Machine. We feel confident we can clean as well as or better than any cleaning system out there. ... But talk is cheap.... so we are gearing up for a road show.

So ... if you would like for us to meet with you and compare our cleaning system with yours, please let us know. The only thing we ask is an honest evaluation.

Thanks. Take the challenge!!!

You must be high. I demo'd one in hopes of being able to use it for quick, small jobs, inconvenient setups for a truckmount etc and gave it back ASAP. It's cumbersome, leaves the carpet too wet and is unusable once your usual setup is a high powered truckmount.

I'll lip lock my vac hose from my Everest to the vac outlet of that thing and rip its guts inside out.

I worked with this machines for 2 years and they are good but a PITA to woork with, the water hose and the powercord always on the way, it works with water flow but if you are in a place where you have low water flow you are screwed.

You can bring it to my rug cleaning shop in Orange County, NY and we can try it out on some area rugs - heard some good reports using it this way!

Man you are really putting yourself out there. I hope you have cleaned and have expereince with modern day truckmounts to make this statement. I sure it is good but to say better than my 365 cfm and 15 hg's I don't know man. How long have you been in the cleaning biz?

I've also heard good things about the SD. Flushing is great from what I have heard.
But judging from the video, productivity in a mid to large office would take a long time.
I would think in a small office setting it would do great, however the corners and under desk would most likely be cleaned with a wand.
I had a pull behind KentSelect carpet extractor when I first started cleaning carpets. I thought it was the cats meow. Pulling backwards becomes old real quick.

I'd be interested in a demo if it were in my back yard. Hotdogs, hamburger, chips and soda (yum) type of demo would be appealing. I'm in. Let me know.

Yes, they should have a barbecue. And all the TMF guys invited. We can bring an aluminum water trough and fill it full of ice and beer, Several varieties of Coolers for the ladies. Then crank the satelite Radio tunes non stop. Then around 10 or 11 pm when were all getting a good buzz on, we can try out the Steemon Deemon.

I have the xl-15. I also have a TM. I LOVE THE SD XL-15. Its a great machine guys. I think you would be surprised. The abouve comments about hose, its a non-issue. Its very fast using this machine. I have talked to two people who actually sold there TM after using this these units. I prefer in alot of cases to use this machine over my TM. It is hard to belive but this machine does not overwet and it really flushes out the soil. I would try this unit if I where you, you would be surprised!!!

Mike has been in the carpet cleaning business a long time. He was talking and making high flow machines when many of you guys were still in diapers.

There are a lot of Demons in use and you can rarely find them used.... It is pretty easy to build or buy a water pump for those times you run into low water pressure. Good agitation and a Demon in the back of a Subaru wagon. You can run a two man crew and clean a lot of carpet quickly with very low overhead.

Alex,
I'd be interested to know who trained you on the SD. Also I would love to go head to head against your Everest. Mike

Alexarz, Hi, My name is Rob Butrum and I will be handling the scheduling of the Steamin Demon Road Show. You are in Luck, Our first US area is going to be the Southeast. Once We get it all figured out and scheduled we would love to meet you in Florida. I guess I'm a little concerned about you statements of over wetting. The Steamin Demon has been tested in many facilities and has been endorsed by the major carpet mills, has been invited to join the Low Moisture Carpet Group, and I have personaly had great success achieving 1 to 3 hour dry times on most commercial carpets for over 9 years. But, I must admit, after training hundreds of third shift maintainence personel, I did find two or three who just couldn't grasp the concept of the ON/OFF switch, so anything is possible. Regardless, we would love to meet you and have a cleaning challenge. Thanks, Rob

Hello, Mike has asked me to schedule any challenges that may arise. Our first trip will be through the Southeastern United States. If you have interest in comparing the Steamin Demon to your cleaning system (truck mount, encap, bonnet, portable) we would love the opportunity to do side by side cleaning comparisions. If there are a group of cleaners in a certain geographical area, that would like to meet and compare different systems, Mike will buy the burgers, dogs, and beverages and we can make it a clean off Sunday or something. Let me know of any interest by emailing me at 1steamindemon@gmail.com, Please include your location, system, and phone number. Once a schedule has been determined, I believe Rob of Truck Mount Forums metioned to Mike he might be able to post an article about. Thank you very much for your interest. P.S. We don't know if we will win or not, so if we leave with our tails tucked under, you'll alteast get a free meal. Thanks again. Rob B
