Cleaning upholstery

Check fabric cleaning code (Fig. 25). Look on the furniture manufacturer's
1
tag for a 'W' or 'WS' code. These codes indicate that it is alright to use your
carpet cleaner to clean the upholstery.
Do not use the carpet cleaner on upholstery marked 'S', 'X' or 'Dry Clean
Only'.
Vacuum upholstery thoroughly with your vacuum cleaner's attachments.
2
Test detergent for colorfastness on a hidden area of upholstery.
3
Wet a white cloth or paper towel with some detergent. Gently rub onto a
hidden area of upholstery. Wait ten minutes. Blot with white cloth or paper
towel and check for color transfer.
Pretreat spots and stains with HOOVER Spot and Stain Spray (Fig. 26).
4
Spray spot or area with Spot and Stain Spray. Then proceed with the next
cleaning steps.
Fill solution tank with hot tap water and proper amount of HOOVER deter-
5
gent (see page 5)(Fig. 27).
Use only HOOVER brand detergents in your carpet cleaner. Other brands
may damage the carpet cleaner.
Place handle in upright, storage position. Press on the tab (A) to remove the
6
hose wand (B) from the floor nozzle (C) (Fig. 28).
Slide tool (D) onto end of hose wand. Snap tool over bump (E) on wand
7
(Fig 29).
Plug extractor into a properly grounded and turn extractor ON.
8
Squeeze and hold trigger (A) to release cleaning solution. Gently press tool
9
into fabric and slowly pull the tool over the fabric (Fig. 30).
Let go of trigger and pull tool over same area to pick up dirty solution with-
10
out putting down more solution. Continue using dry strokes until you see
only a little solution coming up through the tool.
Do not make the upholstery too wet! Use no more than two strokes while
11
releasing solution. Always follow with dry strokes - the more the better.
Listen carefully! When the motor sound changes (rises in pitch), the recovery
12
tank need to be emptied.
When water has reached the full line in the recovery tank, the cleaner will
NOT pick up dirty solution.
Allow upholstery to dry. Avoid using upholstery until it is dry.
13
Increased air circulation (open doors, turn on fans, etc.) will help upholstery
dry thoroughly to prevent the growth of mold or mildew.
