Maybe i read this wrong but a steam cleaner is the deepest upholstery clean there is.My steam cleaner will no doubt, clean better and deeper then any wet vac.Idea of the prochem system is you pre-spray the upholstery and scrub with a horse hair brush.Then use the hand tool which on drag you press the trigger which pushes steam and moisture (which is mixed with a chemical) that gets instantly pushed into the upholstery and extracted out via the vacuum on the same hand tool.This method is most defently the best way to extract 100% of all dirt and contaminants out.

I just love the "striping" on the carpeted areas

Thanks to whoever it was that posted a link to this old thread - I hadn't seen it before.

Very useful, many thanks.

Sorry for the thread revival, but when steam cleaning the carpets, i assume you just use the triangular brush and just steam directly onto the carpet and not through a MF?

If so, how do you deal with any excess water?

And how best to achieve the striping effect?

Nice work Gordon. I've been thinking about getting a steam cleaner recently but there are a lot of mixed reviews of them out there.
