Every Square Foot Tells a Story...


“When I first joined the University of Maryland, we were using a very cumbersome machine for carpet maintenance. We switched to Whittaker and now have 14 machines across campus. I can honestly say it’s the best, most reliable machine in my arsenal.”

- Bob Pils
Assistant Director for Building Services
University of Maryland

“It’s very rare to experience a team of 200 maintenance workers clamoring over a particular cleaning machine, but that’s exactly what happens with the Whittaker carpet care machines we use across campus.”

- Bob Pils
Assistant Director for Building Services
University of Maryland

“Cleaning carpet in faculty offices can be a big challenge because it needs to be dry and ready for use as quickly as possible. Whittaker allows carpet to dry within 30 minutes, so we can vacuum and reset furniture without having to worry about slippery or wet carpets.”

- Bob Pils
Assistant Director for Building Services
University of Maryland

“Whittaker’s chemical line is what sets them apart. They have chemicals for specific stains caused by grease, pet urine, red wine and more. This allows us to tailor our cleaning efforts, which ultimately leads to a lot of positive feedback from our clients.”

- Rodolfo Arauco

“Whittaker is incredibly responsive and troubleshoots any issue that might arise by helping us find an immediate solution or repair.”

“After installing carpet in our library, we immediately got in touch with Whittaker, as they were the top recommendation for carpet care. Since then, we’ve installed more carpet throughout the campus and regularly use and repurchase Whittaker machines and products to maintain carpet cleanliness.”

Assistant Director for Facility Services

“We’ve been using Whittaker machines and chemistry for six years and find that it does a better job of cleaning than anything else we’ve used. It’s always been a great system and their team is responsive and knowledgeable.”

“For the past 11 years, we’ve used Whittaker at over 200 Atria communities in the US and Canada. With Whittaker, I don’t feel like a number – I feel like a person. Their customer service – allowing us to sample new products and helping us provide proper training to our staff – has really solidified us as a lifelong customer.”

“Whittaker encouraged me to try Crystal Dry®. Each time it exceeded my expectations for speed, appearance, and lack of re-soiling.”

“It has allowed us to increase productivity on existing carpet contracts and to gain new business from customers who need to have a ‘dry’ method of carpet cleaning.”

“We recently landed 22 retail locations and had to provide extraction service to all sites within 72 hours of signing the contracts. The customer was set on hot water extractions and would not budge. We knew we would not be able to provide the service within the time period so we took a gamble and went in to each location with Whittakers. The customer was amazed at the cleanliness of his carpet and was even more amazed when we showed him how it was done. Had it no been for your product, we would not have been able to meet this deadline and possibly have lost the customers. It’s not every day that you come across a product that has become so much a part of your success. Whittaker has become that product.”

A national janitorial services franchisee

“I didn’t believe your system could possibly work as well as your ads claim. I am now a firm believer…Your system is fantastic! I’ve been in the carpet cleaning business for 25 years and I have never used a carpet cleaning system as simple and effective as your product. I have 7 supervisors working under me and they were skeptical at first; but not anymore. After a job is completed they just shake their heads and smile.”

- Bill E.

"I’ve been using Crystal Dry® for about two years and it still amazes me. So many customers tell us it’s the best carpet cleaning they ever had.”

- Rich S.

 "I have tested this product in a facility where the soiling conditions are extreme. This carpet must be truckmounted to keep even with the soiling. In the past there has never been any improvement and within two weeks the soiling was back to the beginning again. I inspected this facility this morning and I am completely convinced that we are going to be using this product all the time!! I have never seen a “dry extraction” method that could keep up with the type of soiling conditions at this facility! I am extremely impressed.”

"I recently had a problem carpet cleaned by an outside company and they used one your machines. We had already cleaned the carpet with an extractor and we just couldn't get the tracking area clean. Called the carpet company and they suggested trying the Whittaker. I was blown away by the way the Whittaker cleaned that carpet."

-A school custodial supervisor

"We just wanted you to know how elated we are with the amazing GLS (Smart Care®) as well as your fantastic Crystal Dry® … We had been a traditional multi-truck HWE operation and our whole world has definitely changed since we added the GLS and Crystal Dry® to our arsenal of carpet cleaning equipment. … exceeded our expectations in every respect … we transformed the whole place from derelict to the ultimate delight of the customer … fast and quiet … results were just fantastic. Our profit on all jobs with the GLS has outpaced our profit using HWE equipment – even though we were able to undercut all our competition."

"I have tried several other “encapsulation” products and keep returning to Crystal Dry® because it meets and/or exceeds the standards for VOC emissions for cleaning chemicals and also cleans very well."

"Crystal Dry® is one of the few products that do not induce coughing and/or wheezing when I’m using it. Also, the clients appreciate that there are no noxious odors associated with the product."

"Kinda fun to use compared to HWE wand. Much easier on my back."

“We used this [Smart Care®] system on our new carpet at work and today when I saw the housekeeping staff actually using it I was immediately mesmerized by it. Sooo much better than a scrub brush or pad!!!!! AND it also lifts the pile…wonderful product.”

"The Whittaker carpet machine and chemicals were phenomenal. I've used hundreds of systems but this one has to be in the top 2 or 3 that I've used. This machine is highly capable of restoring carpets in a short period of time. I highly endorse and recommend this machine. It is very easy to operate and is border-line fun. For the price and convenience, this one is going to be next to impossible to beat."

- Keenan T.

 "That [Smart Care®] machine is a gem! Every school should have one. I have never seen a better rug machine. I spent 20 years in the hardware business and rented rug equipment and NOTHING worked like your machine."

- Pete C.,
Maintenance Supervisor

 "The bottom line is that the combination of the effectiveness of the Whittaker products and the professionalism of the staff continues to contribute greatly to our success and continued growth. Obviously, there are other companies attempting to offer what Whittaker is capable of delivering. However, from our perspective, Whittaker is the best, and we wouldn't think of going anywhere else. In fact, we will save you the time of shopping any of the competitors. We've already done all the homework, all the necessary research, and wouldn't dream of considering anyone else."
