Posted by Terry_Burrows (Terry_Burrows), 9 February 2004 Hi Guys,this weekend I was bonnet buffing for the first time,I have a ashbys sensai vey good,twin jets,
the carpet was flat no pile as such,I was amazed at the result of bonnet buffing,is this better to buff then use a rotary machine with a brush I know for sure it was much faster,whats the best tips for this method

I have been bonnett buffing for 15 yrs. It is a lot quicker, but sometimes one has to get the extractor out for really grubby carpets. I use the Numatic 400 with Ultimate Master and as you say the results are very good.
Posted by SteveTruman (SteveTruman), 9 February 2004Forgot to say i usually scrub with brush then bunnett buff
Posted by Terry_Burrows (Terry_Burrows), 9 February 2004 steve,I cant beleave I have not done this before
I used a brush and just got a new machine with tank,
what extraction do you guys use
Posted by SteveTruman (SteveTruman), 9 February 2004Ey up Terry
At the moment i have a steempro 2000, but that is going as i personnally think heat and water on a carpet is a recipe for disaster. I am getting a machine very similar to the Cheyenne without the heater.. This is my view and i know other peeps on the forum think that the more heat you apply the better job. If i need hot water i think the water out of the tap is hot enough. Once again this is my personnal view... 4yr ago all i had an extractor machine for was cleaning upholstery and the same machine could clean curtains with solvent. Just buff buff buff man....
