extremely impressed for a £50 cleaner!
on 24 July 2015
The vax powermax vrs18w rapide what can I say it does exactly what is says on the tin. It arrived this morning and couldn't way to give it a test drive mainly because we have a new puppy and his little or in his case not so little accidents were becoming really hard work on your hands and knees. impressed is an understatement! I genuinely thought that giving the carpets a quick shampoo with a cheap machine would maybe fade the stains and mask the smell until he grows out of it and we can replace the carpet but boy was I wrong, they've come up like new or near enough no visible stains and smelling fresh as a daisy. We had been previously been using the spray on,scrub in and hoover up stuff that comes in a pink can but after emptying the dirty water bottle the 1st time it was clear that these products just push the stains further into the carpet out of site...It was discussing! Please don't let the price or other reviews put you off this really is a good carpet shampooer, easy to assemble (3 screws) easy to fill, empty and clean. A few of the reviews I read before purchasing said it leaked and left marks on there carpets. I found no such problem possibly because I read the manual back to front when putting together and use. It is quite noisy but somehow I didn't expect it to be whisper quiet concidering the job it does. The tanks are quite small, I have a large 3 bedroom house and filled and emptied it 4 times doing the master bedroom and landing but the rest of the house is all wooden flooring so didnt need a big cleaner. would I recommend this cleaner? The simple answer is yes ideal for small areas and little accidents. If you have a large area to clean I would advise a larger vax mainly because you will become tiresome of emptying it but it was ideal for my bedrooms and landing very happy customer!
