The AW Upholstery cleaner project


Recommended Posts

Hello all.


I wanted to get an upholstery cleaner / carpet cleaner for some time but didn't want to spend silly money on new just so I could clean work van seats and the odd emergency spillage stain removal job.


I was looking at the karcher and Numatic George machines but thought i could easily build my own for less.


Build details 

Homebase Ozito 1250w wet vac 

Numatic clone handheld upholstery tool

A few metres of clear 8mm hose 

Generic 12v flow controller 

Geneic 12v 50 psi diaphragm pump 

Tesco basic white chopping board 

12v 3 amp power supply unit 

Black ABS project enclosure 


The benefits of my system is that the upholstery cleaner parts all work alongside a standard dry & wet vac so I have a fully serviceable and usable vac without all the upholstery tooling and hoses permanently attached to it.


So I can use it with my chow saw for sawdust or suck up water from a washing machine etc 

Total build cost £100 build time one hour
