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.
