Which of your machines works on shag carpets?

Answer: Be sure to look for a manufacturer’s cleanability code tag. Use on fabrics coded “WS” or “W”. If coded “X” or “S”, do not use.

If it is safe to carpet clean your shag carpets, I would suggest that you use any of our upright carpet cleaners for the job. Such as, DeepClean Premier® Deep Cleaner.

Most shag carpets can be carpet cleaned. Although, while dragging the carpet cleaner over the shag carpet, some spots may absorb more water than others and will become more wet than even pile carpet. Use a fan across the rug after carpet cleaning to help dry for a couple of hours.

Make sure to carpet clean with a machine formula such as 2X Professional Deep Cleaning formula or try any of our scented formulas with any of our upright carpet cleaners.
