New Pegasus 500H Heated Carpet Extractor ranked highest in vote by thousands of commercial cleaning managers for its superior heated cleaning, ergonomic features, innovation, efficiency, and durability.

Vancouver, Wash. – December 27, 2023 – U.S. Products, the leader in commercial Jan-San cleaning extractors, today announced the company’s Pegasus 500H Heated Carpet Extractor system was selected as a winner of the 2023 Annual Reader’s Choice Award for Building Maintenance and Cleaning Tools best new product.

The U.S. Products Pegasus 500H was selected by Readers of Facility Maintenance Decisions and Facility Cleaning Decisions who voted on this year’s best products.

The Pegasus 500H Heated Carpet Extractor has a dual vacuum that reduces commercial cleaning drying time 20 percent faster than any other products on the market. The reduced drying time allows cleaning teams to complete jobs quicker. This helps commercial cleaning operations improve their productivity and revenue by cleaning and finishing incrementally more square footage in a day.

“Commercial and operational sanitation and maintenance crews want a superior extractor tool that delivers the most power, the greatest durability and the best heated cleaning for the fastest drying time. The Pegasus 500H Heated Carpet Extractor allows cleaning crews to take on larger spaces and jobs and complete the job with greater speed, efficiency, and productivity,” said Jon Smalley, U.S. Products CEO. “Heated cleaning creates a HOT ROI. By reducing the time it takes for areas to be cleaned, an operation can turn around the space faster and increase area usability and worksite revenue.”
