Area Rug Cleaning

Important! Please check manufacturer’s tag before cleaning area rugs for any specialized cleaning instructions. We do not recommend deep cleaning delicate, silk, wool, antique or area rugs without a manufacturer’s tag.

Regularly clean your high-traffic area rugs in Express Clean Mode:

  • Check the manufacturer’s tag.
  • Select Express Clean Mode.
  • When cleaning area rugs, place the rug on a sealed surface to test for colorfastness in an inconspicuous area. Your cleaner should not be used on unsealed surfaces.
  • Important: Keep the foot of the deep cleaner perpendicular to the rug’s edge with each cleaning pass to prevent damage.

  1. Keep hair, loose clothing, fingers, and all parts of body away from openings and moving parts. Brushroll continues to rotate when in the upright position.
  2. Brushroll continues to turn while product is turned on and handle is in upright position. To avoid damage to carpet, rugs, furniture and flooring, avoid tipping cleaner or setting it on furniture, fringed area rugs, or carpeted stairs during tool use.
  3. The brushroll remains on while cleaning with the hose and tool. Do not allow cleaner to sit in one location for an extended period of time, as damage to floor can result.
