Oceanside CA— Local entrepreneur, Ken Burt knows what works and doesn’t work when it comes to cleaning carpet surfaces that have soaked-in spills and pet accidents. He owned and operated a successful direct sales business of vacuum cleaners and carpet cleaning equipment for over 38 years. Now he has designed the Spillmate™ extractor.
The Spillmate™ extractor is a revolutionary attachment that connects to your vacuum hose, converting your vacuum into a compact wet vacuum, allowing you to clean small spills, stains, and pet accidents, easily and quickly.
Ken explains “Accidental spills and pet urine stains are traditionally cleaned by trying to absorb the liquid with a towel, which in reality, only pushes the liquid deeper into the carpet. Using spray-on cleaners without any extraction doesn’t work either. This only removes the coloring of the stains, leaving the stain behind, only to reappear later. The residual of the spill, and especially pet urine that is not removed correctly, will often resurface or produce a nasty odor.”
The Spillmate attaches to your standard household vacuum cleaner hose and utilizes the full power of your vacuum to automatically convert it to a compact wet vacuum. The Spillmate safely traps all the liquid in the reservoir without entering the hose or vacuum. Clean up is virtually effortless.
Spillmate will be launching an Indiegogo Campaign to raise funds for the tooling needed to start production. The balance of the funds will be used for inventory. Be one of the first “Early Birds” to buy a Spillmate extractor through Indiegogo for less than it will retail for. The campaign that will be launching soon.
