We took a photo of the UK's carpet cleaning guru Paul Pearce on an orange one of these at the UK cleaning show, but we hadn't expected to meet the Turkish manufacturer of the equipment at an Italian event.
The company's Murat Ongel talked us through some of the machines on display, explaining that it will take one worker with a manual rotary cleaning machine approximately 20 minutes to clean a six square metre carpet while it takes just five minutes with a computerised, fully automatic BRS machine, which uses steam at up to 170 degrees. You just have to take up the carpet, clean it and lay it back down on the floor again.
"The equipment is competitively priced - as are the consumables," he told us, saying that the company offers comprehensive training support to customers.
"With the use of the control panel on the BRS, the operator can determine how much water and detergent is to be used and how long the brushing and drying process will take, as well as the speed of the machine itself and the speed of the brushes. These can be saved in the machine's memory for use the next time that a particular rug or carpet is cleaned.
