When I started cleaning in 1981, some carpet manufacturers were recommending low moisture (some even specified the HOST brand) cleaning. In 1986, StainMaster was introduced and the carpet manufacturers started recommending hot water extraction.

When did carpet manufacturers start requiring the use of Hot Water Extraction to maintain warranties?

I dont know the answer, just curious.

Good question. I know as long as I’ve been cleaning (since 1994) it’s been the recommended process. I don’t know about required though.
