Carpet cleaner

Hello to all,
Quick question, I have a 2009 Georgetown 350 TS and was wondering if there is a particular way to clean the carpet? I have a carpet cleaner for my house, but did not know if that would get the under flooring too wet? Any wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

We use a carpet cleaning company that uses a steam cleaner. But, we use them sparingly to prevent too much moisture getting into the thin wood subfloor.

I have used my house rug cleaner aqnd carpet shampoo. It works very well but make sure you use limited amount of water and make sure you suck it all up. I usually do it in the morning when cool and leave everything open so it can get plenty of air to dry. Don't do it when its raining because of the high humidity. A nice hot dry day is good. You can always come to Arizona to clean your carpets. Its plenty dry here.
Don't forget to leave the slides out to insure the carpet drys before pulling in the slides.

Get a owner operator, hot water extraction carpet cleaning company to clean the carpets.
None of this $9.95 a room stuff. (trust me on this one) pay a fair price.
vacuum it real good before the guy gets there. if he's good he'll vacuum also,
to get all of the dry non soluble soil out of the carpet first.
Have the house carpets done at the same time.
In the motorhome, have some floor fans blowing on the carpet when he's done with the A/C on should be dry in a few hours.

Do it right the first time!
