Product Description

Product Description

The innovative and award-winning Vax V-124 Dual V is a quick and easy way to get professional carpet cleaning results whenever you need them

The Dual V's powerful suction effortlessly removes dirt and odours, lifts stains and puts the colour and spring back into your carpet's pile. Your home will look clean and smell fresh - without the upheaval and expense of a new carpet.

Washing your carpets regularly is just as important as vacuuming. That's because it removes oily and embedded dirt that gets trapped in your carpet and is left behind by your vacuum cleaner--even if you vacuum daily. Carpets that aren't washed become dull, flat and worn over time because this trapped dirt damages the fibres and flattens the pile. Washing helps prolong the life of your carpets and keeps them looking at their best at all times.

The Vax Dual V is ideal for busy family homes with kids and pets, where muddy paws and spilt drinks can quickly take their toll on carpets. Keep it on hand for sucking up accidental spills and removing stains, before they become a problem. As the Dual V helps to remove pollen, dust mites and other allergens from your carpet, it's a great choice for homes with allergy sufferers too.

Deeper cleaning, quicker drying

Gone are the days when deep cleaning your carpets was a job you had to put aside a whole day for. The Dual V's patented twin air path and heated cleaning technologies leave your carpets touch dry and ready to use again in just a couple of hours.

The two V-shaped channels in the floorhead deliver consistent, powerful suction right across its width, so your carpets are both cleaner and drier.

Heat from the Dual V is directed onto the floor during operation to deliver heated cleaning. The air is heated by passing it over the exhaust motor of the machine. This air is then compressed into a smaller cavity-compressing the air builds up energy and this produces more heat.

As you clean, this heated air is directed over the brushes, warming the water and cleaning solution to better break down grease, dirt and grime. As you extract the dirty water from your carpet, heated air is directed over the cleaning path and has a gentle drying effect similar to a hair dryer on your carpet.

Rotating SpinScrub brushes clean carpet fibres on all sides

Professional cleaning results

The SpinScrub hand tool gives you concentrated cleaning power.

The Dual V's floorhead has five rotating SpinScrub brushes, a bit like an electric toothbrush, that spin rapidly to clean the carpet pile on all sides. This loosens and lifts embedded dirt, giving you a really thorough clean.

Two hand tools are included with the Dual V, giving you everything you need to wash your stairs, upholstery and car seats, or suck up any small accidental spills. The two powered brushes on the SpinScrub hand tool provide concentrated cleaning power for removing particularly stubborn spots and stains.

The Dual V is a hygienic way to wash your carpets and upholstery. As it has separate clean and dirty water tanks, you're never reusing dirty water, so you know your carpets are really clean.

For optimum cleaning results, the Dual V has an Automix system to deliver the correct mix of cleaning solution and water. You simply fill the clean water tank with warm water and then fill the solution tank with the supplied Vax Ultra+ carpet and upholstery cleaner - Vax's toughest solution yet. Vax Ultra+ is specially formulated to leave no sticky residue, so your carpets stay cleaner for longer. All Vax carpet cleaning solutions are Woolsafe approved, so they are safe to use on all types of carpet, including pure wool.

5.0 out of 5 stars It does what it says. 12 May 2008
This is the first carpet washer we've used and we are very happy with the overall results. We can certainly echo the other two reviews here. We've cleaned our ground floor carpets (2 rooms and hall) so far - mainly cream coloured with nearly 4 years of high traffic use. You may of course have to tackle the odd stubborn spot separately. The amount of dirt and pet hairs extracted is truly impressive. The brushes do a good job of getting the shampoo in and bringing the pile back up. We had good results with the stair/upholestry attachment too. Filling up and dispensing is all straightforward and the machine comes apart easily for cleaning. The vacuuming is effective and the carpets were completely dry the next day. We broke a handle (our fault) and help line were helpful(!) and sent us a free replacement which arrived in 6 days over the bank holiday. The 6 year guarantee is a definite bonus. Recommended.

Top tips:

1. Read instruction thoroughly before you start.
2. Pick a nice day so you can open the windows, get a breeze going and put out any rugs you may clean.
3. Buy some carpet shampoo. The one supplied is just a sample (about 1/3 size) and you get through it quickly. The Ultra shampoo is very effective on high traffic areas but is not cheap. We used nearly two bottles on the ground floor but there are cheaper alternatives.
4. Get someone to help you move furniture around and to take turns washing and filling as it is quite labour intensive.
5. Buy some ear defenders. I don't believe its any more noisy than other cleaners but it is more comfortable if you are going to spend a few hours at it. Our local DIY store had some fairly cheaply.
6. Keep the dirty washer container, brushes and filters clean between washes.
7. Don't tell your friends and family. They'll want to borrow it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Well designed 15 May 2008
We bought the V-124 after deciding that the excellent Rug Doctor hire option was too much trouble. The Vax dual-V technology which dries as you go seemed to be a great idea so we went with that even though you can buy carpet cleaners for far less. It's been used once and the carpet came up really well. The machine took out loads of dirt. Using it is hard work and we were very wary in case we broke anything. It's predominantly plastic. A great deal of thought has gone into the design. We haven't used the extension attachment but it also looks promising. Cleaning the machine afterwards was quite straightforward. You only get a small amount of the Ultra cleaner so stock up on more fluid unless it's a very small carpet. Hopefully, other makes will do. We've loads of Rug Doctor shampoo. Unused cleaning fluid is kept in a separate tank on the Vax and can be left in situ after you've finished. The Vax takes the shampoo and feeds it into a warm water section of the tank. Filling the clean water tank and emptying the dirty water from a separate tank was easy to do. The clincher when thinking about what to buy is the six year guarantee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic after my experiences with Bissell 18 May 2008
By A Henry
Having owned a Bissell powerwash pro heat for three years and had nothing but trouble with the customer service and spare parts people I finally cracked and bought the Vax V124. Fantastic is all I can say, it is easy to use, dries the carpets better than the bissell, my lounge carpet was a good test subject as it was covered in muddy dog prints, the V124 cleans far better than my bissell ever did and uses far less cleaning fluid than the bissell making it far less costly to use especially if you have dogs and kids and are often forced to clean the carpets. I am delighted with it and recommend it most highly. Another point to remember... With bissell you can only buy spares from them via their 0870 number, with vax you can simply buy from your local vax dealership. When I contacted vax by phone prior to purchace to test out the customer service departments level of service I found them fast and helpful and well informed about the product. Highly recommended.

1.0 out of 5 stars The most expensive but certainly not the best 16 Mar 2011
Verified Purchase
Since we bought this item we have had nothing but problems with it. The first time we used it the drive pin for the brushes broke and the carpet hose valve leaked. We had to send the machine back to Vax for repairs. We have just received it back. The leak has been fixed but he first time we used it the brush drive pin broke again! We are waiting them to send out a replacement brush assembly. Will that work?

5.0 out of 5 stars Vax V-124 Dual V Upright Carpet Washer 3 Jan 2009
We hunted around for a new carpet cleaner, then we found these reviews, all reported very positively, so we went ahead & ordered one, it came a couple of days later (Christmas eve)
Thought we'd have a little 'trial-run', ended up using it for a couple of hours!! we thought our carpets were relatively clean, but the tubfuls of mucky water proved otherwise, fortunately, we went downtown & bought a couple of large bottles of Vax cleaner beforehand,good job too, as the small bottle supplied was soon used.
Ok, so its noisy,but that's no big deal, it looked a bit complex at first, but we soon fathomed it out & its easy after a few mins use.
After an hour or so, I noticed the main 5-brush assembly was not rotating, pulled it off to find the brush 'gears' clogged with wet carpet fibres which in turn had jammed & prevented the brushes from rotating, causing the square-plastic drive shaft to snap off!!
Got around the problem by filing an old bolt to fit ( I'm an engineer) so we could carry on using over the Christmas break!!
Sent an e-mail to Vax not expecting a reply until well into the new-year, but imagine my surprise to get a call back the day after Boxing day!! No problems the very helpful young lady said, 'we'll send you a new brush assembly' WOW!! Its just arrived today, ten out of ten VAX, top class service.
Oh yeh, the machine it top-notch as well.
