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.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent vacuum and carpet cleaner 20 Feb 2011
    By L. W. Newton TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Amazon.(And VAX ofcourse) 8 July 2011
    By izzy
    3 in 1 Perfection!!!
    I'll just start by saying that my previous 2000(+)Watt machines have not matched the suction of this 1300Watt Vacuum cleaner. It is PHENOMENAL!
    It grips the carpet with the wash head or the dry head. Even with the brush head attached it sucks to the furniture mid stroke so you have to angle the head slightly. This is by no means a criticism.
    The engineering and build quality are superb. It gives the performance that you might expect from an industrial machine.
    If you have pets then look no further. Our cat brings in fleas from 'stray-like', poorly looked after PETS?, in the area. The fleas do not stand a chance against this thing!
    I was looking for an upright carpet washer and a replacement drag along hoover. But when I saw this for [] from trusted Amazon it was an instant solution to both needs.
    The results of the carpet wash function will surprise the cleanest householder (our carpets have only been down a year, but my little girl has learned a new word.., "disgusting" !!)
    The dry hoover results are great. You really feel that you are hoovering the floor beneath the carpet. Can't wait to use it on the bed mattresses!
    The wet... well, I almost feel like spilling a gallon of water! I am fully confident that it will not let me down in the slightest.
    The size (as mentioned in a previous review) is what it is! It is by no means large. All of it's volume is fully justified and with its casters it is easy to move and very light when not full of water.
    Just to clarify, I LOVE IT!
    The changeover from dry cleaning to carpet washing is quick and simple and I think that all the Vax cleaning products will do a fine job.
    Hope this helps buyers and good luck with your cleaning.
    Downstairs done, I'm off to start washing the stair carpet... look out mattresses.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Vacuums well - washes even better! 14 Mar 2011
    By Bryan VINE VOICE
    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
    The Vax 6131T 3-in-1 MultiVax has two main uses as far as I am concerned. As a vacuum cleaner it is very effective with a very powerful suction. It moves easily over laminated flooring and carpeting and I guarantee you won't believe how much dirt it picks up - but so does any good vacuum cleaner! So let's get to the nitty-gritty!
    Switching the Vax to a carpet cleaner is simple. Follow the instructions and you're soon ready to give new life into the carpeting and furnishings! You have to set a suitable period of time aside and make sure the area you are going to clean is free from furniture, etc. Picture the area you want to clean, maybe a metre square and work on that area, working back and forth. The amount of grey debris which is drawn out is unbelievable and wait until you empty the container, you won't believe how much dirt has been extracted. The Vax really gets down to the root of the pile and shifts the dirt out bringing the carpet up as good as new. You have to work on the carpet by pacing yourself and you'll appreciate the reward at the end. I also used the Vax on my twin sofas and was very impressed on how they were freshened up - however, I had to wait for them to dry before I could use them again.
    If you have a spill on the carpet then I wouldn't personally suggest setting up the Vax for that cleaning but when you have more time, work on the carpet and any trace of the spill should soon disappear. There are many cleaning liquids on the market to clear up incidental spills.
    In some respects, the Vax can appear to be cumbersome but any hired carpet cleaner would be the same. From this point of view, storage of the Vax can be a problem especially if it is not used as a vacuum cleaner. These are just little niggly points I wanted to make to be fair.
