  6. Spray the solution onto the carpet( apply more to the dirtier areas and less to the clean areas) and allow to dwell for a few minutes then agitate using either a carpet brush or use a crb, sebo duo or rotary with a shampoo brush attached , then allow to dwell a further 10 to 15 mins . check all the edges for draught marks and agitate
