Position the brush in front of the stain you want to clean. Squeeze the trigger, then turn on the motorized brush by pressing the power switch on top of the handle. Slowly move the brush over the stain, then release the trigger when you’re done. Any excess dampness can be cleaned up by making additional passes with the brush without squeezing the trigger. Leave the machine on for 15 seconds after cleaning to allow dirty water to collect completely into the Waste Water Tank.
