They recommend to start with either a second hand or brand new machine, it should be from manufactures such as Prochem or Truvox. There are also some british made machines like Ashbys Ninja and Alltec which are of high quality and last you a long time. Stick to any of those models and you cant go wrong. The same is when it comes to selecting your carpet cleaning chemicals. In fact the type of carpet cleaning chemicals you use are more important than the how good the machine you get is. Buying cheap supermarket brand products can end of doing more bad then good. You should also go on a one day course on carpet cleaning, there are quite a few courses run in the UK.
