Hi Bob

A good vacuum and use your dry fusion you'll have no problems.

If you wet clean on a stick down you risk shrinkage as there is no gripper holding it in place.

I have been asked to inspect many times in situations like this.

Thanx for the replys I actually looked at the website for that type of carpet and they said i could extraction clean it.
Did job early this evening....Good Vacuum followed by extraction cleaning, carpets were vertually dry on completion no problems.
