SOURCE: shampoo furniture

I have had a Kirby for over 20 years and yes you can shampoo your furniture. You do it just as you would your stairs or as if you were spot cleaning. There is really nothing to it.

SOURCE: Do not know how to connect hose to bag to utilize

You will connect the hose to the front of the vac after disengaging and removing thehcarpet head.
Lift the headlamp up, rotate the lock tab There is a square grip below the headlight. Rotate it left180 degrees to remove the belt drive and the carpet head.
Now insert the hose in the same position and rotate the teardrop shaped lock tab to lock in place.

How do I hook up my Kirby Ultimate G for upholstery shampooing?


Hooking up the foaming device simply blows foam into the job. Here is a shortcut which I find more convenient on my G4 tools. If you have the rotary upholstery shampoo kit, you can just attach the rotary tool to your hose. Then mix your kirby suds into a household spray mist bottle. If you happen to have a mist bottle with a screen on the intake straw it will foam your suds not quite as well as the kirby device, but this way you can store the suds in the spray bottle for future quick use.
kirby suds are designed to be used as foam not liquid so a foamer in the spray bottle helps the process. You do not want to soak the furniture, just apply a light mist and scrub with the air driven shampoo tool on the hose. Then allow to dry and vacuum 24 hours later.

What parts go to a Kirby Shampooer?


There is a shampooer head with shampooer brushroll, water tank, small hose that hooks to the tank, collection tray

Need to use the Kirby shampoo. It goes down as wet suds but you pick up the suds with the vacuum when it drys. Fill tank adding 1 cap full of soap (kirby soap only) per level on the side, this attaches on the side where the bag is attached

After using the shampooer you need to reattach the vacuum bag and main brushroll nozzle as though you were just vacuuming up dirt.

Instructions:

Lift the front of your kirby up (front part with light) open the handle on the dail in the front (if epquipt), remove the power head, put on height adjustment on highest level, turn dial on front of power head until you see 2 red arrows facing each other, unlock by turning knob, power head should come right off, get shampooer out the power head for shampooer with collection tray, make sure dial is set red on red, put on front of Kirby and lock in, turn dial to green on green arrows, fill tank adding 1 cap full of soap (Kirby soap only) per level on the side, this attaches on the side where the bag is attached, line up arrow and notch and turn, to hook up hose put Kirby down to lowest level, notched end of hose hooks in on tray other end on the tank,on/off switch refers to the foam, Turn machine on to lay the foam & scrub carpet, take shampooer back off to extract the foam once it's dry.

Good luck.

Upholstry set up for ultimate g kirby.


Remove the entire cloth bag assembly and put the hose on the side where the bag came from. Remove the power nozzle and put the intake guard onto the front. (this is in your attachment set...the only one with little hooks that sit on the bar in front) You can change from the long handle to the short if you'd like also. You get the handles off by pushing the "seatbelt button" located at the rear bottom of the handle and pulling the handle straight up and out. Now, put your spray gun on the hose. Don't forget the little suds nozzle that goes on the end of the spray gun. I like to use a half and half solution of Kirby shampoo and water in the gun. It makes a nice dry foam that only wets the surface of the furniture. If you use more water, it takes longer to dry.

If you need a manual (book or DVD) for your Kirby, try this link....

Shampoo stairs


There is a portable shampooer/sprayer that attaches to the hose ( the long one that makes the kirby a canister vacuum). It should have come with your attachments. Looks a bit like a gun without the tank attached to the bottom...the tank screws on.

To use it you would put the fingerguard attachment on the front of the kirby where the powerhead would normally go and the hose with the portable shampooer where the bag would go.

The tank on the portable sprayer/shampooer has lines to indicate how much water and shampoo are needed.

Be sure to put the mesh nozzle (sort of a triangular shaped thing with a piece of mesh along the front that attaches to the front of the portable sprayer) on the front of the portable sprayer if you want to shampoo..otherwise it will just spray a mist. The triangular piece with the mesh screen is what produces suds.

Vacuum the furniture/stairs thoroughly before shampooing. Cover the stairs/furniture with a thick coat of suds. Once covered with suds, pop the suds into the fabric/carpet using your hands...working the bubbles into any heavily soiled areas with a soft brush. No need to vacuum after shampooing. There is only about 10 percent water to 90 percent air in the suds.

Then let it dry. 15 minutes to and hour depending on the amount of solution used. Hope this helps!!!

I have a Kirby Ultimate G Series. I have misplaced (no, it's not lost...I have it somewhere) the manual. How do I use the upholstery attachment? Does it hook to the outlet on the shampoo tank?

roro, There are two possibilites: One is that each hose does something different (suck and exhaust) or both suck. Find the one that sucks. That should be the one that you hook tools to now. If the attachment has an electrical connection, it will be needed to do scrubbing. If the shampoo unit is from a different brand, you'll have to make up something to do that. If you do, be certain that the connection is fully taped up so no liquid can get to it!!

Cleaning upholstery with the Kirby?


it depends on the make of the kirby you are using but most kirby systems come with a portable shampooer and special shampoo. I would not recommend using your zip brush for shampooing purposes, the zippbrush is designed to loosen up dog hair, dirt, ect. when vacuuming. to shampoo upholstery do the following: remove bag from side of machine, place hose where bag goes, remove power head from front of the machine, place air intake valve on front of machine where power head was (intake valve kinda shaped like a pig nose with small holes on end) attach portable shapooer to end of hose and fill with water and kirby shampoo spray shampoo witch is foamy looking on whatever you are shampooing, rub into fabric w/a brush and let sit till dry. when dry turn kirby back into a hand held vacuum by putting powerhead back on front of machine and putting bag back on side of machine, then vacuum furiture. (make sure it is 100% dry before you vacuum because Kirby is not a wet vac!) Hope this helped ya out a little
