Giardia- do's and dont's

Sorry to start a new thread, but it is a different angle.
Please, anyone who has dealt with this disease.

My 'quick draw' pup can drop a load while you blink to sneeze, even though I watch her constantly.
Inevitably, its happened- the soupy, Giardia-ridden feces are now on my carpet.

I usually put on rubber gloves and spray the hard floor with "99% bacteria" killer, and get rid of the offending dump.
But this time its not wipeable.

Now, I have a steam cleaner- but will the Giardia cysts then be living in the moist filter apparatus of the cleaner and bowl? This presents a mess, as it could in theory spread this all over the house every time I use the steam cleaner (leaving of course, wet rug and cysts everywhere).

How in the world do you clean Giardia-ridden poop from a carpet? Spraying bleach will bleach it white.
I finally have an appointment to get my pup in to my vet Wednesday- the shelter that gave me the infected dog has washed their hands of the affair, so its on me to cure :/
