Carpet extractors are designed to quickly and easily remove water and excess moisture from large areas of carpets. These specialized tools feature large tanks for water and a powerful suctioning device that can effectively remove moisture from carpets. This can be extremely helpful in removing moisture from a carpet that has been cleaned or when dealing with spills, stains, or spots. Carpet extractors can be used on both synthetic and natural fibers and are safe for use on most types of carpeting. They are often used in homes and businesses to remove water from wet carpets after a flood or water leak.
