What to consider when selecting a wand

October 7, 2011

MUKILTEO, WA — Here''s a little secret some carpet extractor manufacturers may not want you to know: The carpet extractor wand selected can be almost as important as the extractor itself, according to a press release.

Selecting the wrong wand can make carpet cleaning slow, tedious and stressful; it can increase the chances that an injury — particularly a back injury — will occur, the release stated.

According to the release, there are several factors to take in to consideration when selecting a wand, including weight, ergonomics, durability and glide.

"Take the time to test the wand before selecting it," said Mark Baxter, product manager for U.S. Products.

"If possible, try different wands before selecting the one that best works for you," Baxter added.
