    Hullo all, I have been asked to clean a ladies sofa and carpet today. She also has a rug she wants cleaned. I am wondering if one of you have cleaned one similar and what method you followed? As i dont believe using a TM3 to agitate would end well. Any advice welcome. Label shows 100% polyester.
    Thanks

    Kevin,

    I would not be concerned about using a TM3 fitted with soft brushes on this. The clean should be straightforward with the critical dry extraction possibly being the most time-consuming.

    Hi John, I was thinking it would become all matted if using the TM3. Thanks for your response.

    A CRB will lift/untangle the pile and raise any loose fibrous material.

    Equally important it will homogenise the prespray.
