Tennant introduces a new commercial carpet cleaning technology called ReadySpace. Available on the Tennant 1610 Dual Technology Carpet Cleaner and Nobles Strive Dual Technology Carpet Cleaner, the patented technology creates clean carpet spaces that are dry and ready for foot traffic in abotu 30 minutes or less, rather than the usual 15 to 18 hours. To achieve this, ReadySpace relies on sprayer units that apply water to two counter-rotating, specially designed fabric rollers that pick up soil from the carpet. As the rollers turn at a rate of approximately 400 times per minute, they are rinsed with a solution spray, and a built-in vacuum extracts the soil from the rollers, so very little water actually reaches the carpet.
