ok i know its idiot proof but can some guys out there help me before i start cleaning the publics carpets.ive practiced on many different carpets and friends houses to remove spots and many other problems with the freestyle but finding it very difficult to remove the spots never mind hard and stubborn ones,Should i be using some sort of spot removing machine as well as using the freestyle.Will be on a course in May to learn how to use it but would love the advice of any freestyle users out there as i think they can tell me where im going wrong.

What sort of stains are you having trouble removing?
What kind of pre spray are you using?

Droll sense of humour but I like it

If carpets being cleaned by a method involving  a high-pressure wash, a good flush and real extraction still require pre-treatment with specialised spotters to remove some stains, it is hardly surprising that a method that consists of dampening and blotting fails to remove them unaided by specific chemistry.

Take the Host course but get further training from an organisation such as the NCCA to get some understanding of what is involved.

Hi Guys

Depending on the spots and stains ,certain spot removal chemicals will work when applied as a very fine mist spray and simple agitated, Of course I can't actually say which ones they might be!!!!

Best regards Nick
