Can anybody recommend a good carpet cleaner that gets in deep and is a good deodorizer? <BR> <BR>Much Thanks.

Power Washer works well and then a carpet cleaner after that.....

Power washer? are you assuming snap out carpet? Mine is non-removeable.

Jack, <BR> <BR>When I was having my upholstery redone, I used a pressure washer on my glued down carpet and followed up with a carpet cleaner. Made a big difference. Just be careful where you aim the pressure washer. <BR> <BR>Jman

I use a pressure washer as well. Also want to use a wet dry vac afterwards to get the water out. Keep away from amps etc. Just be very careful and do not rush. I do not suggest this if you have a wood floor though in your boat

Yeah this is only for people with all fiberglass boats, what about us 'normies'

Buy a mastercraft then you can bring your carpet to the dry cleaners.

Call a carpet cleaning company. Tell them you want your boat's carpet steam cleaned. They'll probably do the whole thing for around $100 and it'll look great. <BR> <BR>I do mine every summer and it always looks sharp.
