Von Schrader Esprit

Fast Drying and Safe for all Fabric

First, the portable, self-contained Esprit quickly dry vacuums dust and surface dirt. Then, a safe, low moisture cleaning agent is applied. Specially designed counter-rotating brushes in the hand held Power Head gently scrub and agitate the dirt and grime loose. A built-in vacuum system immediately extracts the dirt embedded foam which is collected in an easily removable recovery tank.

Fabrics dry extremely fast, giving a fresh new appearance to all types of upholstery fabrics including velvet, raw cotton, Jacquard weaves, tapestries, brocades; even leather.

This unique system's cleaning agent is only 10% moisture when applied and is also ideal for fabric-covered office partitions, carpet and upholstery spot removal, stairs and risers, as well as vehicle interior detailing. The possibilities are endless. Car, van, mobile home, RV, boat, aircraft seating and interior space can be effectively cleaned, with only minutes of drying time.

Von Schrader Upholstery Equipment

The easy to use, lightweight Power Head contains its own safe D.C. motor and 3-way thumb-controlled switch. (An optional side handle can be added for two-handed operation). Dual counter-rotating brushes won't twist or distort fine fabrics. They do the work while you simply guide the Power Head over the surface. Standard white bristle brushes are for fine fabrics. Optional black stiff bristle brushes are for use on carpet. The dry, airy cleaning agent (only 10% moisture, remember) warms as it flows around the motor housing and onto the brushes. This ingenious design increases cleaning performance and lengthens motor life, thanks to its cooling affect. Recommended safe and effective by the leading furniture and fabric producers.

Saves Time, Labour and Money!

The new and improved Esprit features faster detergent application and extra extraction power for even quicker cleaning and drying. Its new, more rugged design will withstand years of use and abuse. Expensive reupholstering can now be postponed for years with a thorough, safe Von Schrader cleaning program.
