Product Description

Why Wash Your carpets?

Vacuum cleaning on its own leaves behind grime and dried in stains embedded deep within the carpet pile, which can build up to eventually weigh down and flatten carpet fibres. Vax carpet cleaners remove this build-up of dirt, allergens and their accompanying odours, as well as being great for clearing up spills, making them ideal for homes with children and pets. Washing regularly will not only leave your carpet clean, hygienic and looking as good as new, but it will prolong its life and help to avoid the expensive costs of carpet replacement.

Vax V-026RD Rapide Deluxe Upright Carpet and Upholstery Washer

The Vax Rapide Deluxe is a lightweight, manoeuvrable upright carpet and upholstery washer that can also suck up accidental spills. Rotating brushes gently agitate carpet fibers to loosen and lift dirt, odours and allergens from your carpets, and put the spring back in the pile. The Rapide Deluxe is lighter than most conventional carpet cleaners, so it is very easy to manoeuvre and carry around your home, making the job of washing your carpets effortless. A Wash Tool is also included with this Vax carpet cleaner, which is ideal for cleaning stairs, upholstery and car seats so every part of your home is left looking spotless and smelling fresh.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    I used this in my new house to clean my matress and carpets. The instructions were quite easy to follow when putting the Vax together although we had a little trouble slotting a few of the pieces into place. It's quite light weight when it's empty and comes with it's own shampoo and clear instructions for how to follow it. When we first turned the Vax on my mum was standing a few steps away reading me what to do and it was so noisy I couldn't hear her, even standing next to each other you had to shout into someones ear to be able to hear over the Vax. That said it was very easy to operate and the suction on it when sucking up dirty water was very very strong and worked really well. I had a little trouble when using the hose and pressing the button to spray water and ended up getting it all over the walls anytime I went near one but that was probably just because I'd never used one before. The Vax was very easy to empty, clean and put back together when I'd finished using it.

    Overall I was very pleased with the results and ease of use of the Vax my only drawback was the noise. If you're only going to use it for a short while I guess you could live with the noise but for prolonged use I think it is too noisy.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    I have a long history with carpet cleaners, having the kind of house that has lots of visitors, lots of family, and lots of animals, none of whom understand about removing fur, shoes and mud before they enter and throw themselves all over my floors....

    I currently have a huge Vax carpet cleaner which does a perfect job, but it's very big indeed and I have to heave it in from the garage when it has to do duty, so I don't use it as often as I should. Since my puppy is still learning the difference between 'house' and 'garden' in regard to doing *her* duty, cleaning up puddles is quite a frequent job at the moment, and I've been doing it with bucket and sponge...

    So I was thrilled to find this Vax carpet cleaner because it's so neat and tidy: no bigger than the average upright vacuum cleaner: it fits easily in the cupboard under the stairs. It also carries all its tools on board, so I could go all round the house without going back to collect the tools. Also it's got a really long cord, so I could plug it in centrally. Excellent!

    Basically, you fill the tank with carpet cleaner and warm water from the tap, and away you go. By holding the button under the cleaner's handle, the water is sprayed onto the carpet while you draw the cleaner backwards and forwards. There is a bar with brushes that scrub as you go (you can turn that off if you want). Then you take your finger off the button and the cleaner sucks the dirty water back into the machine. It couldn't be simpler - and the water was shockingly filthy!! I recommend you vacuum thoroughly before you clean because dog hairs clog it up in no time and it stops working properly.

    I bought this Vax Rapide as I have Kids and a dog, not sure who is the most messy!!
    Easy to put together albeit a bit fiddly took me about thirty minutes.
    I also purchased the vax pet cleaning product. The cleaner worked well took most of the stains out of a cream carpet but for the best results may need a second go.....
    Drawback is the water tank is not large so have to empty it every couple of minutes..If you can put up with that then great carpet cleaner for the money. Oh have tried the attachments and they are great for deep dark stains.
    All in all well pleased with purchase.

    I DID NOT CHOOSE THE PICTURE SHOWN. AMAZON DID.

    For the sake of brevity I list my review points only because one can not bullet point on amazon reviews:

    1. Arrives as petite square box not slim upright (see video)
    2. Assembly not quite as per instructions which cover a range of models.
    3. Disassembly difficult if want to pack in its box for storage.
    4. Lays down flat for under bed storage.
    5. 250ml of cleaning fluid supplied is enough for three sessions.
    6. Took two sessions for my 3.6m x 4.0m living room.
    7. 750ml Vax fluid easily available in a local shop
    8. Upholstery hose easy to use (I have no upholstery)
    9. Light weight
    10. Would not shift 12-year-old dirt in doorway without repeated use.
    11. Don't expect miracles; you can't replace wear and tear.
    12. Use of Vax Ultra 1.42L improves things a smidge for the complete carpet clean. Clean NOT restore.
    13. Its ideal use is kids and pets but refreshes on a full carpet clean.
    14. Better than I thought for flattened kitchen carpet tiles.
    15. Happy single man.

    My video tried to highlight before and after but lighting conditions defeated me.

    I have had this for about a year, and been happy with it for refreshing the carpets. I have grabbed it in an emergency twice now - once at my 5 year olds Halloween party when one child decided projectile vomit would add to the ambiance, and today when my husband spilt half a bottle of black liquid shoe polish on the carpet. I am so impressed I had to come and write this review. Every household with kids, pets and/or men should have one.
