Cleaning Guide


The information below lays out how best to clean and return the machine at the end of your rental.

Drain the machine

Drain the machine by spraying out any remaining solution over a
drain or outdoors (never in rain or on wet ground). Do not allow the machine to stand in liquid while emptying. For best results, spray out liquid with machine set to “Tool” to prevent brushes from movement and wear while emptying. Using this method, you can spray out any remaining liquid either through Hand Tool or machine spray tips. Also, empty the dirty water from the collection tank and rinse to remove any dirt left inside.

Clean the vibrating brush and bottom of machine

Clean the vibrating brush by pulling down on the plastic brush body.
After each use, unplug the machine from the mains and use your finger or an old comb to remove any debris from the vibrating brush. If you used any Rug Doctor Pro attachments remove debris from the attachment brush. Clean the base of the machine and remove any dirt that has stuck to it.

Clean the vacuum filter

Clean the vacuum filter. After each use, inspect the cylindrical filter
screen located inside of the clear plastic dome on the front of
the machine. If debris is present, remove the filter screen by pushing it right and compressing the spring until the filter end is clear of the dome. Clean by running water through the screen from the inside to the outside. Replace by compressing the spring wire and inserting the black end securely into place in the hole inside the dome.

Clean the solution tank filter screen

Clean the solution tank filter screen. After each use, inspect the
rectangular filter screen located in the fill opening of the solution (lower) tank. If debris is present, remove screws that hold the filter in place and remove filter from the solution tank opening.

Clean filter by holding it under a water faucet and letting the water run through the filter in the opposite direction from the normal filling flow.
Replace the filter screen and fasten it in place with the two mounting screws.

Remove the carpet fibres from the vacuum slot

Check the vacuum slot on the bottom front of the machine for debris. Remove any fibre, hair or other debris that may be caught in the slot. Always make sure the machine is in the “0” position (for off), unplugged and the tanks are empty. If you used any Rug Doctor Pro attachments also remove debris from the attachment
vacuum slot.
