This appliance must be grounded. If it should malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This appliance is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor (C) and grounding plug (A). The plug must be inserted into an appropriate outlet (B) that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

WARNING: Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in the risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the appliance – if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. This appliance is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug (A) illustrated in Fig. 1. A temporary adapter (D) may be used to connect this plug toa 2-pole receptacle (E) if a properly grounded outlet is not available (Fig. 2). Thetemporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet (B) can be installed by a qualified electrician (Fig. 1). The green colored rigid ear, lug, or the like (F) extending from the adapter must be connected to a permanent ground(G) such as a properly grounded outlet box cover (Fig. 2). Whenever the adapter is used, it must be held in place by a metal screw. NOTE: In Canada, the use of a temporary adapter is not permitted by the Canadian Electrical Code.Hoover-SPINSCRUB-50-Carpet-Cleaner-fig- (2)

  1. Vacuum thoroughly – For carpet, use a HOOVER®vacuum cleaner with an agitator for best results. Vacuum upholstery with a vacuum cleaner with cleaning toot attachments. Use a crevice tool to reach into tufts and folds. Do not use the carpet cleaner as a dry vacuum cleaner.
  2. For upholstery, check cleaning code – Use your HOOVER® carpet washer only if the upholstery fabric is marked with a ‘W” (for “wet” clean) or “S/W”{for “solvent/dry” or ”wet” clean). Do not clean fabric marked “S” (“solvent/dry” clean only). If your upholstery does not have a code, seek professional assistance.
  3. Test for colorfastness – Wet a white absorbent cloth with the solution. In a small, hidden area, gently rub the surface with the dampened cloth. Wait ten minutes and check for color removal or bleed with white paper towel or cloth. If surface has more than one color, check all colors
  4. When cleaning entire floor, move furniture out of area to be cleaned (may not be necessary if only high traffic areas are to be cleaned). For furniture too heavy to move, place aluminum foil or wax paper under legs. This will wood finish from staining carpet. Pin up furniture skirts and draperies.
  5. Pretreat spots and heavy traffic areas with an appropriate Hoover Cleaning Solutions, see”Cleaning Solutions” section. Follow Directions on bottle.

What cleaning agent is compatible with Hoover Power Scrub?

A few drops of tea tree oil are added to a 50/50 solution of white vinegar and water to enhance the aroma, despite the fact that Hoover naturally recommends their own detergent. This has been quite effective for us and is affordable.

The water in a Hoover Power Scrub is heated?

The water itself is not heated by the Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Cleaner. Please add hot tap water to the clean water tank. Using hot water instead of cold enhances cleaning results greatly.

What is the distinction between the Hoover Power Scrub’s wash and rinse options?

When you choose “Wash,” you can mix water and cleaning solution; when you choose “Rinse,” you can just spray water.

If you don’t vacuum after using carpet cleaner, what happens?

If you don’t vacuum your carpet, the dirt will cause the fibres to deteriorate and will serve as a haven for bacteria and dust mites. In addition, the dirt, mites, and other organisms that settle into the fibres will cause your house to start to smell musty.

How frequently should carpet be vacuumed?

Home experts advise vacuuming carpets and rugs at least twice a week, and more frequently in areas with high traffic. Daily vacuuming is strongly advised if there are pets in the house to get rid of dust, hair, dander, and other microscopic allergens that are difficult to see.

Can you wash a Hoover’s interior?

Regular vacuuming removes soil and debris that could harm carpet fibre and shorten the carpet’s useful life. Increasing the carpet’s lifespan will also increase its sustainability.
