When using an electrical appliance, basic
precautions must always be followed.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, this brush
machine has a polarized plug; one blade is wider than the
other. This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one
way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse
the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified
electrician to install the proper outlet. Do not change the
plug in any way. Connect only to the outlet type specified
on the serial number plate underneath the machine.

WARNING! The quality, condition, coating,
texture, age and manufacturing technique of all
floor surfaces vary. Therefore, machines with
rotating brushes, including your SEBO duo brush
machine, may damage some floor coverings or
surfaces. Berber carpets, long shag, specialty and
delicate or hand-woven carpets are particularly
vulnerable to damage by rotating brushes. Always
consult the materials supplied by your floor’s
manufacturer for information on proper upkeep and
cleaning. To ensure that your new SEBO duo brush
machine is compatible with your floor coverings,
please test the duo-P cleaner and brush machine on
each type of carpeting in a small inconspicuous area
to determine if any dam-age occurs. If damage
occurs, stop using the brush machine and powder
immediately! An operating machine should not stand
stationary on the floor for inappropriate periods of
time. Damage could occur. Do not run the machine on
flooring not covered by carpet.
Your SEBO duo
Cleaning System is formulated to deep clean your
entire carpet or spot clean stubborn stains without
soaking your carpet. Dry cleaning is safer for most
carpets – it will not shrink the carpet or cause
water staining if applied unevenly. SEBO duo-P
Cleaning Powder leaves no detergent residue to cause
your carpet to re-soil, and the carpet can be used
immediately after cleaning.
Because this is a DRY cleaning process, the SEBO
duo-P Cleaning Powder will not promote the growth of
mold and fungus in your carpet and pad that wet
extraction systems may cause. In addition, the GAF
allergy research center in Germany found in a long
term test that, six months after a single cleaning
with duo-P, seven out of ten carpets remained free
of dust mite allergens.

How it works: The Sebo duo-P Cleaning Powder is made up of
granules that are moistened with detergent and is
environmentally friendly and safe to use. When the
granules are worked into the carpet fiber, soil and
stains are lifted out of the carpet by the duo-P
powder. The duo Brush Machine lifts the carpet pile
ensuring all surfaces of the fiber are cleaned,
leaving your carpet revived and softer. After
vacuuming, the duo-P powder is removed, and your
carpet is left clean, dry and ready to use.
An added advantage in using duo-P Cleaning Powder on
your carpet is that once applied, a built-in fiber
protector will help to protect against future damage
from soiling or staining.
The duo-P Cleaning
boxes are available as a single (1.1 lb) or a
multiple with five (1.1lb each) packs. Each
single pack can cover up to 250 square feet of
The Sebo dup-P
Clean Box contains a 1.1 lb pack in an
environmentally friendly refillable container,
and the underside of the lid has a built-in
brush for spot cleaning! When you have used the
contents, you can replace the inner bag with an
inexpensive refill pack of duo-P Cleaning
The Sebo duo
Accessory Brush is perfect for cleaning small
areas such as entryways and stairs.
Press the plunger button (10) and insert the handle
(1) into the swivel neck (5). With the plunger
button released, the handle should remain firmly
engaged. Pushing the handle forward sets the handle
into the storage position. Pulling back releases the
handle into the operating position.
To clean the
entire carpet. First, vacuum your carpet prior to applying
duo-P Powder. Then, spread duo-P Cleaning Powder
evenly over the carpet. This can be done by
spreading the powder directly out of the bag, or by
spreading the powder by hand. Distribute the powder
lightly, but evenly, over the area to be cleaned
(figure 1). You need not use an excessive amount of
powder for effective cleaning.
Work the powder into the carpet using the SEBO duo
Brush Machine, which opens the carpet pile enabling
the duo-P powder to clean around each separate fiber
(figure 2). Once the duo-P powder has absorbed all
of the dirt and the area is dry to the touch
(approximately 30 minutes), simply vacuum the area
thoroughly (figure 5).
To spot clean stains. Vacuum any loose dirt or debris from area. If
soiled area is wet, use white paper towels to absorb
all moisture from the carpet. This will prevent the
powder from “caking up” on the carpet and the brush.
Then, spread a small amount of duo-P powder onto the
soiled area. Gently work the powder into the carpet
using the spot cleaning brush (page 5, #8), the
brush provided with the SEBO Clean Box (figure 3),
or the the accessory brush (figure 4). Older or more
stubborn stains may require further treatments.
Simply repeat the process until the stain is
completely removed. Once the duo-P powder has
absorbed all of the dirt and the area is dry to the
touch (approximately 30 minutes), simply vacuum the
area thoroughly (figure 5).
