Wherever she is sure that the najasat was there: the areas where there was Aine Najasat i.e. the urine etc needs to be purified by pouring water over it either through a pipe or something else connected to kurr and also rub over it with a cloth to make sure the Aine Najasat was removed.

As for the other areas of she is sure the najasat has spread she needs to pour or spray water attached to kurr but doesn’t need to wipe it as the Aine Najasat itself was not in those areas.

As for the areas that she has doubt whether it has spread or not – those are pak.

Basically what she did to purify it before did not make these areas pak and are najis.
