For someone new to carpet cleaning especially with a truck mount what tips and tricks of the trade do you have?
Personally I start setting up my solution line and let the truck mount warm up with 250•.
then prespray with a 13 ph cleaner and use a agitating brush with some heavy duty soil lifter
Then let dwell 5-10 minutes while setting the rest of my stuff up.
lastly rinse with a 3.5-4 rinse with 550 psi
Of course I treat certain stains also if it’s red stains or urine.

First tip is not every job needs a nuclear bomb treatment like you are using. Actually even on the nastiest ones I never go over 10 pH. On lightly soiled jobs you can even mix your prespray at half the recommended strength.
