Pre shampoo Tips to carpet clean effectively with shampoo, the first step is to move all couches, tables and other furniture away from the area you need to clean. Once clear, thoroughly vacuum to pick up any loose dirt, debris and other soil.
The more you regularly vacuum, the easier it will be to shampoo.
Once thoroughly vacuumed, pre-treat stains and frequently traveled areas with Kirby Avalir Pre-Treat for Heavy Traffic Areas. Allow pre-treat to sit on carpet fibers for up to 5 minutes before shampooing with the Multi-Surface Shampoo System.

How to Use a Kirby Shampooer.
The Kirby Avalir Multi-Surface Shampoo System lets you avoid the costs and hassle of hiring a professional carpet cleaning company or renting cumbersome equipment. Instead, simply convert your Kirby Avalir 2 Home Cleaning System into a carpet shampooer by removing the power nozzle and the filter bag and attaching the Kirby Avalir 2 Multi-Surface Shampoo System to the unit. Once the unit is assembled, use it to deep clean your carpet. Step on the upper pedal of the Toe-Touch Control until the Kirby Avalir System is at its lowest position.

Turn the Suds Control Valve to the Kirby Carpet Setting, then turn the unit on. You will see as you move the Kirby Avalir shampooer back and forth, foam will release and the brush will work it into your carpet. We recommend shampooing smaller sections of carpet at a time. Turn the Suds Control Valve to the off position. Go back over the shampooed carpet in multiple directions to really get that shampoo deep into the carpet. Keep an eye on the Waste Tray while you shampoo.
There are indicators on the edge and when you see liquid filling the area below, it is time to empty it. Turn the unit off before removing the tray and emptying it. Allow the carpet to dry completely.
Kirby’s unique shampoo will encapsulate the dirt as it dries so that it can be easily vacuumed away. Once the carpet is dry, convert the Kirby Avalir 2 System back to an upright vacuum and use it to remove any dry residue left over after shampooing.

Post shampoo tips 👍 After you shampoo, let your carpet completely dry before walking on it. Walking on your freshly clean carpet before it is completely dry can cause dirt and other soil to transfer from your shoes or feet to your carpet, undoing all your hard work cleaning! Once your carpet is completely dry, vacuum again to remove all residual dirt and debris that was worked out of the carpet when you shampooed. This dirt has been worked into the kirby Carpet Shampoo, which then dries into a dry crystal. Vacuuming after shampooing removes this dirt and residual shampoo keeping your carpet clean longer.

Remove Cat & Dog Urine Blot carpet with clean cloth to remove the bulk of the accident. Shake Kirby Pet Stain & Odor Remover then generously apply directly to stain. Repeatedly blot the area with a clean, white cloth to remove stain. Once you have removed everything you can, rinse a clean, white cloth under water and lay over the stain covering the entire area. Allow to sit for up to 24 hours. During this time, the enzymes in Kirby Pet Stain & Odor Remover eat away at any left behind malodor, effectively removing pet urine, vomit and feces. Repeat as needed until the stain is completely gone.

How to Clean a Large Area Rug By changing the settings on your Kirby Avalir 2 Home Cleaning System, you can also use the upright mode to clean many types of area rugs. Use the Toe-Touch Control to raise or lower the cleaning height of the vacuum, and use the Belt Lifter to start or stop the brush roll to accommodate your specific area rug.  For fur, sheepskin or hair-on hide rugs, we recommend you do not use your vacuum. These require special attention to maintain the fur and we recommend following rug cleaning instructions on the tags.  If the area rugs you bought to add style and personality to your room are dingy and dirty, they’re not doing their job. Luckily, cleaning them doesn’t have to be much work. Gone are the days when people would shake out area rugs or beat them thanks to your versatile Kirby Avalir Home Cleaning System.
