I have 2 dogs and have been so fed up with a mop and bucket - I spend my time changing the water as it gets so filthy and I don't think the floor is ever clean. Keeping the 2 labradors out of rooms I have cleaned & are still wet is always a nightmare.
I saw this product on QVC but bought it on Amazon with an extra bottle of cleaning solution for less money. I love this machine! I read a review somewhere else that said it takes a long time, but I have not found that at all - it is quicker for me because as I said before I spent my time changing water.
The suction is excellent and is touch dry instantly, there is no mess or fuss and I find a very strange satisfaction in watching all the grime that has been lifted up. We only have carpet in our bedrooms, so the majority of our bungalow is laminate and tiles - it looks as it did when we had it was new. It is the size of a normal upright cleaner so stores easily, unlike the other bigger carpet washers from vax. There is no complicated assembly, just click the fittings on and unfold the handle. The cord is long enough to reach across my rooms without having to unplug. The controls are simple and consist of one dial to select dry, wash or suction - one on/off button and one trigger in the handle to dispense the solution. The instruction booklet is short (yay!) and easy to understand.
I don't normally write reviews, but this has made my weekend! Thank you vax! (Sorry for the long review!)
