Before you start the machine, unwrap the plug and cord from the machine. The machine will turn on and use the functions for carpet or upholstery. Be sure that it is set to CARPET and not UPHOLSTERY. Of course, if you are going to use the upholstery attachment to steam clean your furniture and hard to get at places, that’s up to you. However, for our purposes, we’re going to clean the rug. So, set it to CARPET.
Rug Doctor 64 oz. Oxy-Steam Carpet Cleaner-04110 - The Home Depot
Cleaning professionals recommend pre-spraying carpets with green chemicals before using steam cleaning equipment. This helps dissolve tough stains, dried dirt deposits, and beverage spills. After leaving the chemical to do its work for some time, use the rug steam cleaner. By ejecting cold or hot water at high pressure levels, rug cleaners help eliminate almost all kinds of deposits from carpeted surfaces and upholstery. The extraction functions in the XTreme Power® rug cleaners help extract the dissolved dirt particles, stains, and water, leaving the carpets spotlessly clean.

Low water usage also eliminates the risk of foul odor and mold development.

Wool area rugs require a little more consideration when being cleaned than those made of cotton or artificial fibers. While steam cleaners do a good job on most area rugs, care should be taken when using one on wool.If you have a wool area carpet that has been stained badly and all other cleaning methods have failed, a steam cleaner can be tried as a last resort. The deep cleaning treatment available using a steam cleaner will definitely do a better job than the more normal wool cleaning methods. The problem is what happens afterwards. The hemp or hessian backing that so many wool rugs are woven on is very absorbent and takes a long time to dry properly. The lanolin rich wool encourages mold growth so it is very important that a wool rug cleaned by steam is dried very thoroughly.
