Tornador type of cleaner

Question

Hey guys I bought a "knock off" if you will tornador type of cleaner. Looking to use it mainly for interior cleaning.

 

Anyone have any idea what type of dilution this needs and can I use different interior products in it for different types of cleaning. Example - carpet n upholstery cleaner for seats and floors? Leather ant interior Cleaner for leather seats and door panels etc.

 

Is it safe to use this type of tool on leather seats etc?

 

New to air cleaning so just want to make sure I know what it is or is not safe to use it on for cleaning.

 

Thanks.

I have no experience with that tool, mainly because the compressor needs are insane. You can check You Tube and the Autogeek forums however, there is a ton of information out there on that tool. Good luck, I always wanted to try one of those.

Ok. Yeah I've got a decent size compressor so I'm not overly worried about air capacity lol

Must be nice, I need to get something bigger. My little husky has trouble filling tires, haha.

I have a Tornador Black. I only use DI water in it. I spray the cleaner directly on the dirty area, agitate, then spray with the Tornador. I then switch the water off and hit it with air only.

I own a Tornador and love it. I fill it with Reverse Osmosis filtered water and about 4oz of Adam's Carpet & Upholstery Cleaner. I use it mainly for cleaning carpets and cloth seats. Things a beast.

One thing Ivery found with mine is there's no way to dial back the cleaner/water. Just on or off (cleaner or air) and it really saturates the carpets and seats.

 

Guess I could try going at it with valve at 50% and see what happens as long as it doesn't break something.

I can adjust the air/water flow by adjusting the air compressor's regulator, or by not turning open the Tornador's valve the whole way open while in use. The machine works best at 100psi though. I'm not saturating anything, aim directly at the dirty area and the compressed air blows much of the water back out as it cleans. If it's held at an angle the water doesn't get hit with enough air to be blown back out.

This is why I only use water in the tank. I use the tool with water at first then turn it off to just air. I haven't tried it at 50% though, it might work great. Let us know!
