Start by using the hose with the corner attachment. This will give you the highest suction power possible. Hover over the area to be cleaned to pull up as much material as possible. (Avoiding contact with the carpet will avoid driving the litter deeper into the carpet.)
Do not use the broom or brush attachment, since these will also drive the litter deeper into the carpet. Similarly, a hand vacuum is to be avoided if possible.
When done, apply a carpet deodorizer so that the kitty won’t decide that this is a new litter box.
If your cat does decide to use the floor as a litter box, give us a call so that we can get out those deep-rooted smells!
