Date posted: 14 November 2016

The Truvox Hrydromist Compact is an all in one spray extraction machine for carpet and upholstery cleaning.

Please use this machine in conjunction with the user manual and also refer to the safety instructions.

Setting up

  1. The working position of the handle is raised. It must be fixed in position by means of the locking screws on either side.
  2. Remove the recovery tank to gain access to the solution tank.
  3. Fill up the tank with the recommended cleaning solution and water.
  4. Replace the recovery tank, secure in position and reconnect the hose.


The machine control switches are located on top of the machine. They are illuminated when in the on positions.

  • The vacuum motor switch extracts dirty water from the carpet into the recovery tank.
  • The brush drive switch operates the rotating brush.
  • The accessory spray switch pumps cleaning solution to the accessories. It must be switched on when using the upholstery tool.

The spray operating level sprays cleaning solution onto the carpet.

  1. Connect the cable to the mains power and switch on the vacuum motor and brush drive
  2. Operate the spray lever on the handle to dispense the cleaning solution whilst pulling the machine slowly backward’s to clean the carpet.
  3. Stop spraying the cleaning solution about 30 centimetres before the end of the cleaning pass to ensure all solution is vacuumed up.
  4. Raise the machine slightly and reposition for the next pass. If you have a stubborn stain pass once with only the solution running to agitate the stain.
  5. Leave for a few seconds and pass over with a vacuum.

Upholstery or stair cleaning

  1. For upholstery or stair cleaning remove the hose and upholstery tool from the bag. Attach the upholstery tool to both the vacuum and the solution hose. 
  2. Then remove the vacuum hose from the recovery tank and insert the accessory vacuum hose in its place.
  3. Disconnect the solution hose from the connector on the front of the machine and connect the accessory solution hose to the front of the machine.
  4. Switch on the vacuum motor and the accessory spray.
  5. Operate the spray lever on the handle to dispense the cleaning solution whilst pulling the upholstery tool backwards.


When the solution spray ceases, the solution tank is empty.

Switch off the brush motor, run the vacuum motor for approximately 2 minutes to allow residual water in the system to be fully drained into the recovery tank.

Switch off the machine, empty the recovery tank, rinse clean with clean water and fill the solution tank as shown in the next step.

Drain & Clean

  1. Disconnect the vacuum hose, and lift off the recovery tank . Remove the transparent cover.
  2. Empty the dirty water and rinse out the tank with the clean water to remove any dirt.
  3. Replace the transparent cover and the recovery tank and reconnect the hose.

Removing remaining cleaning liquid from tank

  1. To empty any remaining liquid from the solution tank , remove the drain hose from the back of the machine.
  2. Disconnect the solution hose from the connector and fit the drain hose.
  3. Direct the free end of the hose into a bucket or drain and switch on the accessory spray switch.
