Esprit Upholstery Cleaning Machine
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.
- Super-fast drying
- No over-wetting dangers
- Seating goes back in use almost immediately
- No sticky, re-soiling residue remains
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.
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 Esprit cleaning program.

HOST FACT – What is HOST?
HOST Sponges, Fragrance Free, and HOST SJ is a soft, natural product consisting of millions of absorbent sponges. These “sponges” are moistened with a unique blend of water, detergents and cleaning agent. The SPONGES Cleaner contains and controls all the necessary liquids to dissolve both water soluble and solvent soluble soil.
The HOST SPONGES do a double duty job. First, they carry the liquid cleaning agents to the fibres in a controlled way. Second, they loosen, absorb and hold the soil in control for extraction by vacuuming. With the HOST Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaning System you are in total control of the cleaning chemicals and soil at all times.

Cleaning Viscose Rayon Upholstery with the Aridex or Esprit Upholstery Cleaning Machine
Viscose (Rayon) fabric looks good, but has low resilience, poor dimensional stability (i.e. it’s prone to both shrinking and stretching) and wrinkles easily when wet. So the key is to minimise moisture and dry quickly whilst grooming the pile. So you can, with great care, clean this fabric
Use Von Schrader Blue Label Anti Resoil Detergent, but that it is vital that you leave the suite dry and groomed before you leave the premises. Tackle the job slowly and clean a section at a time. Natural drying is OK but can be aided by blowers or you can use a salon sized hair dryer on the lowest or no heat setting. The key to all of this is gentle grooming and leaving the suite dry. Always try a test area before proceeding with the clean.
Remember grooming whilst drying is the key to success. Ask about our grooming brush!
Cleaning the Freestyle
Talking to James Henderson – Visitor Services Manager for OCS at the Bon Accord/St Nicholas Centres, Aberdeen he tells me that his teams clean the Freestyle equipment at the beginning of the shift as they do a better job because at the end of the shift they are tired. As the equipment is in continuous use this doesn’t seem to be a problem.
