Product Description

Product Description

6131T Upholstery Tool
Tools for cleaning furniture and upholstery

The Vax 3-in-1 multifunction cleaner was first created back in 1979 by Vax's founder, Alan Brazier, who wanted an easy-to-use and affordable domestic carpet cleaning machine that could dry vacuum, wash carpets and also suck up spills. The versatility and simplicity of its innovative design mean the 6131 is still the carpet cleaner of choice in many homes today. While it has been updated and refined over the years, the essential design features have made this orange canister so iconic to this day.

The 6131T is the ideal total cleaning system, as you can vacuum up all the dirt, crumbs and pet hair from the surface of your carpets then quickly and easily switch to washing mode to remove the dirt that is embedded dirt deep within your carpet.

Even if you vacuum your carpets daily, dirt gets trapped and trodden into the pile, which damages the fibres so your carpets start to look dull, flat and worn. To prolong their life Vax recommends that you wash your carpets every 3 to 6 months. This will keep them looking bright and clean, smelling fresh and feeling soft and springy to the touch. If anyone in your family suffers from asthma, hayfever or other allergies, they'll benefit from your carpets being washed as it helps to remove the dust mites and pollen that can trigger a reaction.

The 6131T Multivax canister is the ideal total home cleaning system. It is a powerful, easy to manoeuvre everyday vacuum cleaner with a large dust capacity. The combination floor head lets you switch between vacuuming carpets and hard floors at the touch of a button, and there are accessories for cleaning upholstery, stairs and crevices. The 6131T also washes carpets, with patented Fibreflow technology that makes washing as easy as vacuuming. It flushes out dirt and dust to leave your carpets looking fresh and revitalised. As it has large tank capacities you won't have to stop to empty and refill it as often. Washing machine flooded the floor? Spilt milk? Not a problem for the 6131T--this machine sucks up spills too.

Powerful everyday vacuuming

The Vax 6131T is a powerful, bagged vacuum cleaner with a large 10-litre dust capacity, so you can do more cleaning before you need to empty it. And as the dirt is hygienically captured in the bag, there's less mess when you do empty it, so it's a good choice if you're sensitive to dust. Its robust, tub design with five castor wheels make it very stable and easy to manoeuvre around your home. There's a selection of cleaning tools supplied with the machine that make it easy to reach right into tight crevices, and to clean your staircases, furniture and upholstery. A switch on the combination floor head means you can quickly change between vacuuming your hard floors and carpets.

Fibreflow cleaning technology

Once you've dry vacuumed your rooms, it's quick and easy to set up the 6131T for washing. Simply remove the dust bag and filter, fill up the solution tank with warm water and the recommended amount of carpet cleaning solution, then slot it into place inside the canister. Secure the lid in place and connect up the solution tube. Finally, attach the Fibreflow wash tool and you're ready to go.

The Fibreflow wash tool cleans deep into the fibres and the cleaning solution breaks down embedded dirt and stains. Powerful suction removes the dirty water, leaving carpets ready to walk on again in just a few hours. Your carpets will look cleaner and smell fresher again. All Vax carpet cleaning solutions are specially formulated so they don't overfoam or leave a sticky residue, so your carpets stay fresher for longer. As they are Woolsafe approved, they are safe for all types of carpets, including pure wool.

Sucks up spills and floods

Washing machine flooded the floor? Spilt milk? No need to panic if you've got a 6131T in your cupboard, as its generous 8-litre wet capacity and strong suction mean you can quickly deal with floods and spills before they become a problem.

    You know when you order something, you hope it will do the job but in the back of your mind you have doubts that it could possibly live up to expectations. Well I noticed our stairs/landing carpet had what appeared to a slightly darker patch where people walked, only really showing when the light was streaming in from the window. I looked for some sort of cleaning tool/solution and came across the VAX6131T and the previous write ups suggested it was a good product. As its main use would be for the stairs, this model with its long hose seemed a better option than the upright versions (besides, we already have a great dry vacuum).
    The order came quickly (Amazon Prime) however the product didn't work, it seemed the water feed system was faulty in some way (the dry vac side of it came on and is very powerful). Now I contacted Amazon and they quickly arranged to pick up the defective product and deliver a new one (actually the next day but as I couldn't be in, had to delay it for a couple of days). Can't complain as these things happen from time to time and it was dealt with well.
    So I set it up as the instructions show (which once you've done it once, is pretty simple and straight forward), filled the water tank, added the cleaning solution and hoped it would a reasonable job of cleaning up the patches. To be honest I was just hoping it didn't make a mess and would show some worth at all. The result was truly shocking, my carpet was much dirtier than it had looked (you don't notice the slow decline in its brightness) ! The cleaning instructions suggest a push forward and a slow drag back, this had little effect on the carpet at first. If you did it several times it started to pickup and clean.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    The Vax 6131 looks a little old fashioned, but proves that the best designs are sometime the simplest!!

    One quick word of advice, don't lose the instructions to this cleaner as there are various bits and bobs that go here and there that will need later referral to the instruction book.

    Following the instructions the Vax is quick and easy to set up for both dry cleaning and wet cleaning, the cleaner is supplied with 3 very large dust bags(10lrt) used for dry vacuuming that should last a fair while before replacing, unfortunately these bags cannot be reused but are cheap to buy VAX 6140 6131 6130 6120 Vacuum DUST BAG x 10 Pack (152).

    The Vax is a very powerful vacuum, so much so that the dry cleaner head was very hard to push around our carpet without opening the small gate on the flexible pipe to release some of the suction, it did a very good job of our carpets with just a dry vacuum and looking inside the dust bag, picked up lots of dust and dirt that our 'other' vac did not.

    I set about swapping from dry clean to wet clean, again following the instructions and using the supplied cleaner fluid, then started cleaning our living room carpet, I was amazed at how much muck came out of the carpet, it was cleaned with a hired cleaner around a year ago so did not expect too much dirt to come out!! the carpet looks like new again. The Vax cuts through the dirt, and left the carpet fairly dry, but we left the room for a couple of hours before walking on the carpet which was still a little damp.

    After reading the reviews for several combination vacuum cleaner/carpet washers I decided that the Vax was the best product for me. The Amazon price is very competetive, as almost everywhere else this model is around £[].

    As soon as the product arrived (which was a day earlier than I expected) I checked all the necessary parts were in the box and in good order. I then read the instruction booklet to make sure I knew what to do to switch between vacuuming and carpet washing.

    After I read the instructions I proceeded to dry vacuum my entire flat. My flat is a reasonable size, but I was able to vacuum every room from one plug socket (which was not possible with my previous vacuum cleaner) apart from the entry staircase. This means I no longer have to faff around with finding a plug close enough to vacuum my rooms effectively.

    I had vacuumed with my old cleaner about 2 hours before my Vax arrived, so I was quite surprised at how much dirt seemed to be coming out of my carpets. The suction was fantastic and the carpet seemed greatly refreshed from this alone.

    I then followed the instructions to switch to carpet washing. Swapping over took me under 5 minutes. It actually took longer for the hot water tap to heat up! I used the recommended dosage of carpet cleaner (you get a small sample included in the box) and proceeded to wash a small area of carpet outside the kitchen door. This is a high-traffic, high-spillage area and I was amazed at how good the carpet looked just from the first pass with the cleaning head. I used around 2 litres of water to clean the area and then sucked all the water back out of the carpet.

    The carpet didn't dry quite as much as I would have liked from the suction alone, but this wasn't too much of a problem.
