Agitation or Mechanical Action is very important in carpet cleaning because it helps to suspend the soil in the carpet.This can be accomplished by using a cylindrical shampoo machine or a rotary shampoo machine.
An Oscillating Pad Machine such as the Hruby Orbot could also be used to agitate the preconditioner into the carpet.
Proper Agitation will help to achieve the following benefits,

2. Aids in the penetration of chemicals into the soils that we are attempting to remove.
3. Assist in soil suspension and dislodgement.
4. Lifts and seperates matted and crushed carpet fibres.
