Kärcher carpet cleaners may have two or more brush heads: standard sizes for normal use, and smaller sizes for spot or upholstery cleaning. Attach whichever head suits the project at hand and ensure the wand and hose are securely fastened. Kärcher carpet cleaners have an easy-grip handle, which adjusts to the appropriate height level. Use a small hex wrench to position the handle as needed, and then tighten to secure its position. For a standard shampoo, place the cleaner head flat against the carpeting, much as a vacuum would sit; turn on the machine and apply firm, even, level strokes forward and backward. This releases water and shampoo into the carpet.. Next, the Kärcher carpet cleaner's counter-rotating brushes massage detergent deep into the fibres to capture all traces of dirt and stain. After 20 minutes, use the carpet cleaner to vacuum the carpet, removing all dirt and water from the nap; empty the intake reservoir as needed. It is best to work in manageable sections to ensure universal coverage. To change out cleaner heads, simply engage the quick-release button on the side of the wand.
