    I mainly agitate stains away before extraction, is there anything to actually wick back by doing this even if left quite wet.

    Warren,

    You are not agitating stains away with agitation - you are re-distributing the extent visible on the surface!

    Part of the spot/stain may have been washed in by over-applied pre-treatment so the potential for this wicking back to the surface is still there.
