To clean upholstery use the upholstery nozzle.
For lightly soiled upholstery surfaces apply the steam and vacuum at the same time.
For very dirty surfaces it is recommended to pre-spray the surface with an upholstery detergent. You can also use Steam Australia’s 101 degreaser.
Brush the detergent into the surface with the bristled brush on the suction with steam. Then remove the brush and place the steam and vacuum suction nozzle on the surface and steam and vacuum the suface in long even strokes.
The less detergent you use the drier the surface will be.
This method is the same when cleaning carpet in small areas. When when cleaning the carpet of a whole room or house you would use the large cleaning head.
