in a few seconds. Raise the tool slightly to
check for spray.
Before you clean,
test a small hidden
area of for colorfastness.If color is

Pre-treating
Cleaning effectiveness will be enhanced

of the carpet or upholstery to be cleaned.
Press the trigger to release a spray of cleaning solution directly onto the soiled area.
2. Wait 3-5 minutes before cleaning.
Cleaning with your Yikes! Compact Deep Cleaner
1. Hold the tool approximately 1” above the
soiled surface. Press the spray trigger to apply
the cleaning solution to the soiled area.
2. Using the brush on the tool, gently scrub
the area to be cleaned.
3. For thorough cleaning, spray additional
solution while the brush and suction are in
contact with the surface.
4. Apply downward pressure on the tool and
pull it toward you. The suction will remove
the dirt and cleaning solution. Continue
until no more dirt can be removed.
5. As a final step, use “drying strokes” (by not
pressing the spray trigger) to remove as
much liquid/moisture as possible. Repeat
this step as often as necessary.
