When was the last time you used your rotary extractor?

The guy who use to clean whole homes with an upholstery tool come to mind
We use them on every job. Consistent performance, proper, multiple rinse flush without worrying about poor wand usage. Zero fatigue factor no matter the size of the job, higher heat on the carpet, and many other benefits to our clients and our technicians.

"Zero fatigue factor "...that's a stretch.

This isn't 1980 any more. Better wands and CRBs have replaced and improved on both our RX and Hoss performance.

You're a bit too stuck on this corn rowing thing. If you read the latest IICRC study they do not know what causes it. It's all speculation. As for CRB's causing it, I call bull crap. I cleaned thousands of homes using my CRB with soft brushes and have not had 1 issue. The times I have seen it happen, it was preexisting.
The IICRC kill off all of the old guys or forget where they put the ancient manuals? All knowledge doesn't become false with every new generation or marketing push. Maybe just forgotten because fine denier high-pile carpet went out of style in the 2000s. so you don't see it everywhere anymore.

Of course they know what causes cornrowing: agitation.

Could be from a door that makes contact, heavy objects moved across carpet or carpet cleaning tools - no matter which way they rotate or don't - if they aren't used correctly. A CRB will absolutely cause it if the wrong brush is used, run too long in one area, or run dry on particular types of non-commercial carpet.

If you don't see it from your own work, you know what you're doing.

And 60% of those wouldn't see it or admit to seeing it, while farming their jobs. 🌽🌽🌽🌽🌽
