Check for Colour Fastness:
Before cleaning carpet, test for colour fastness. Dampen a
white cloth with solution. Test a small area in a closet.
Gently rub the cloth over the area. Check each colour for
colour bleeding. If the cloth remains clean, it should be
safe to clean the carpet.
After Cleaning:
•
Allow carpet to dry completely. Try not to walk on
the carpet until it is dry.
•
If it is necessary to walk on the carpet, place white
towels on the areas to be walked on.
•
If the carpet is not dry and the furniture must be
placed back in the room, use plastic or foil under
the furniture to prevent staining the carpet.
•
Thoroughly clean the dirty water tank with warm
(max 40ºC) tap water.
