Background and Identification
The Presto 3 is a carpet cleaner that is manufactured by the Windsor Kärcher Group, an American branch of the Alfred Kärcher SE & Co. KG business more commonly known as Kärcher. The company sells cleaning equipment and systems, including carpet cleaners. This machine is designed to be portable and light for quick spot removal on carpets.
Carpet extraction cleaning involves the use of a vacuum pump or other drying mechanism to remove water and dirt from the carpet. First, a cleaning solution is sprayed onto the carpet and sometimes agitated with a brush or sponge to loosen any dirt. Then, the vacuum pulls both the solution and any dirt out of the carpet and into the dirty water tank. This drying technique helps to avoid mold or water damage to the carpet while cleaning it.
There is also a Presto 3 Deluxe model, which has the same specifications as the original Presto 3, but which includes standard and double dry hand tools. The double dry tool uses an enclosed jet spray setting to allow the user to target a very precise area to clean.
