CHARIS – Walk behind carpet cleaning machine

Charis-ONE is a self-contained machine, for cleaning middle sized     carpeted areas. With Charis-ONE it is possible to  clean a 40cm strip of carpet perfectly, removing the dirt form the base of carpet fibres.
The water-flow can be adjusted, for a maintenance low-moisture cleaning or a restoration deep cleaning.

The Santoemma high waterlift vacuum system allows excellent removal of the dirt and a very short drying time: the carpet can be dry in one hour! With only a 60 decibel sound level, it is possible to work without disturbing other people.

Adding the patented SMARTKIT system, it is possible to perform automatic chemical dosing, carpet pre-spraying and rinsing.

Main application fields: cleaning companies, hotels, conference halls, restaurants, clubs, pubs, offices, banks, shops, cinemas, theatres, ferry boats, ships, airports,  fitness centres, school, universities, shopping centres, places of worship and all places with middle-sized surfaces of carpet.

Advantages of Charis-ONE: Great cleaning power, thanks to cylindrical rotating brush. No residual dirt will re-emerge on carpet surface after few days! The 3 stages high waterlift vacuum motor and the special profile of the vacuum head allows an excellent suction and therefore a complete dirt removal and a very short drying time. Very silent working (60 decibels), allowing to use the machine with no discomfort for the worker and for other people. The machine can be used also during normal daily working time and in noise-sensitive places such as hotels, offices, banks. Possibility to adjust the height of the brushes according to the kind of carpet and to the dirt degree. Brush easily replaceable with no need of turning the machine over. Controls at a comfortable height for the worker. Water spraying can be continuous or otherwise activated by the machine handle. Quick disconnect spray nozzles, which can be removed without using any tool. The nozzles can be cleaned easily. The complete connector with nozzles can be taken out of the machine without turning the machine over. Possibility to connect the machine with optional tools for cleaning hard-to-reach corners. Possibility to regulate the water flow, according to the degree of dirt and to the desired drying time. With the optional SMARTKIT-CH, it is possible to perform automatic chemical dosing and carpet rinsing. Adding the pre-spray pipe and gun PRESPRAY-MX to SMARTKIT-CH, it is also possible to pre-spray carpet before cleaning, in order to get the best cleaning results and avoid fast resoling of carpet. Other technical advantages of Charis-ONE: Detachable tanks. The machine can be carried easily even in a small car. High density polyethylene tanks, very strong and made for lasting a long time. Transparent unbreakable cover, which allows to see the dirty water while it is sucked. Easy to reach hole for filling the tank with clean water. Drainpipe for easily emptying the recovery tank. Drain valve for draining completely the solution tank. The gaskets are not glued and replaceable by hand. Easy to clean and change. Brass quick-disconnect couplings, reliable and strong. Water pump with internal bypass, which allows an automatic regulation of the optimal water flow according to the tool used. Moreover, the bypass device makes the pump more reliable and avoids problems in the years. Water pump with external rectifier, specially sized for a greater reliability. Vacuum motor with thermal protection against overload. Vacuum motor treated against rust. Both motor and pump can work continuously. Stainless steel brush bearings for a longer life. Modular design that makes the maintenance easier. The maintenance of the machine can be done at low costs. Brush motor with thermal protection against overload and excessive mechanical action on carpet (useful in case of a wrong regulation of the brush height).
