£60 - brilliant!

I have an elderly dog who is starting to have accidents. This has been stressing me out because trying to clean up the spots is hard work and time consuming plus I am never sure that the area has been cleaned properly. Solution! this carpet cleaner!

I have bought Vax products in the past and have found them to be excellent quality so that did influence my choice.

Easy to put together, literally 3 screws so the only thing you have to have ready is a screwdriver.

Not as heavy as I thought it would be, with my bad back, that is a bonus!

Very easy to use and it comes with a small bottle of carpet cleaner so once it was assembled I was using it.

Pros:
1. Comes with shampoo
2. Very easy to fill and clean the water chambers
3. Long cord with a well designed storage system
4. When cord is coiled up it fits properly (so many electrical goods I have purchased recently dont)

Cons:
1. As others have mentioned - the noise! It is very noisy and the high pitch squeal is unbearable. However, I just put ear plugs in when I am using it!

I am pleased with this product over all. It does what it says and I now have clean carpets and no stress.

It's definitely a product aimed at people who can't be bothered with the hassle of hire and return, but don't want to spend an absolute fortune just to clean their carpets.

I bought mine prior to moving out of a flat and handing it back to the owners. It left the carpets smelling and looking much fresher, and you wouldn't believe how dirty the water gets. Embarrassing really! The build is very 'plasticy', but it feels sturdy enough and it makes it quite lightweight. It also made a couple of dried-in stains look much better, though elbow grease was required to remove them entirely!

A couple of issues though.. the tanks are fairly small, so you'll need 3-4 re-fills of the clean tank per room if the room is of a reasonable size. We had a large lounge/dining room and that took me 5 refills. For every two refills of the clean tank, you have to empty the dirty tank, so that adds quite a lot of time to the job. The other issue is the noise. As another reviewer mentioned, there are two filters, one on the dirty water tank and one where the dirty tank connects to the machine. The instructions only mention one of these filters for some reason! So unless you clean both filters every time you empty the dirty tank (by removing them and running them under a tap) you'll get a high pitch whining noise.

So in summary, it's a good value machine that ultimately leaves your carpets much much cleaner. It just requires a bit of fiddling and re-filling to get the job done. It's not like you'll be doing this every week, so my advice is just buy it!

I wanted to give a review whilst I was still in a state of shock... My 'darling' son has just rubbed Heinz bright red ravioli (after demanding that he had it in the supermarket earlier today!) into my cream carpet and left it undiscovered for over an hour.... After mopping the thick of it up to leave a dark red/orange stain deep in my carpet (when I say he'd rubbed it in oh had the boy out his heart into making sure every fiber was coated!) I am absolutely shocked to the point of near tears that this vac has gotten every last reminent of that vile sauce out of my carpet I genuinely thought it was ruined forever!!! Absolutely gob smacked given it was a mere 50 quid!!!! Will 100% recommend after tonight's fiasco!

I have read the review above, (MAD) and I do not know what they are talking about.
I have just purchased this machine and used it for the first time today, it is a great little machine, easy to assemble, easy to use, (If you read the manual FIRST).
It did not leave the carpet soaking wet and did a really good job of cleaning it.

With having a dog who is allowed into the house, I was very conscious of "doggy odour". Also, with renting out carpet cleaners previously, it proved costly. I decided to purchase the Vax for my large living room carpet - well, best money ever spent, after reading reviews I thought I would be forever filling and changing

the water containers, not so, 3 fills and changes completed the job, plus very
light weight which agrees with my spinal condition. For flat carpet only, not
designed for stairs. Highly recommend

I think this product is extremely good value for the money I paid for it (49£), and it does what it says. I was a little worried after reading the comments less than good comments, but I will tell you my ideas.

I have used this on two carpets that had never been cleaned before, and there were stains And pet hair in abundance. The house is occupied by a bachelor with two cats and who isn't fond of hoovering or tidying up. I used my dyson first, then his Vax air vaccuum and then I used the cleaner. It was a lot of..... Stuff that was brought to the top of the carpet, and I had to change the filter quite often, but it did the job. The whistling noises didn't bother me too much, as I used it as an indicator to stop, enjoy the results before I washed out the filter again. I had to clean the filter about every 10 minutes, but it was a dirty carpet! After I was done in the room for the first time, I rinsed the unit out, and did it again. And it was much better that time around. I picked up the "stringies" (hair, dust) as I went along. It didn't bother me, as at least I knew it was working. The second time I did the room (barefoot, as the carpet was quite damp), much less came to surface. And the water collection tank was much cleaner. I went through the room one last time without water, just sucking the water up, and it was fine. I opened the one window for 2 hours, and the carpet was dry.

The second carpet was a very abused hallway carpet, Creme in color, and it came out great, in my opinion. Does it look like new? No, but it has a clean look to it and will make do for a year or so. I only did that one twice, once the deep clean and the other with just the sucking up excess water. Opened the windows for 2 hours as well, and it dried in no time.
