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 good, but it will prolong its life and help to avoid the expensive costs of carpet replacement.
Washing your carpets has been made to be easy, with the versatile Vax W90-RU-P Rapide Ultra 2 carpet and upholstery cleaner. Vax Rapide carpet cleaners are designed to be quick to use, easy to manoeuvre and as simple to operate as a regular dry vacuum cleaner. The Ultra 2 combines ease of use with deep cleaning and quick drying technologies. It's tough on stains too, as it includes a pre-treatment kit that gets to work on stubborn spots and high traffic areas before you wash. The Rapide Ultra 2 has powerful Dual V suction technology that leaves your carpets touch dry in no time, so you can get on with your day. Powered jets pump solution deep into carpet fibres and rotating brushes lift out the dirt and stains that you can see, plus the embedded dirt, allergens and odours that you can't.
Cleans Spills and Upholstery
The Rapide Ultra 2 is also handy for sucking up the accidental spills that inevitably happen around your home, before they become a problem. This makes it ideal for busy family homes with kids and pets, where muddy shoes, paw prints and spilt drinks can quickly take their toll on your carpets. The wash tool is ideal for refreshing stairs, upholstery and car interiors. It can even be used for those small accidental spills.
How To Use
Press the trigger to apply the cleaning solution as you push the machine forward. Simply release the trigger as you pull backwards and the powerful suction removes the dirty water and lifts the carpet pile. Pour away the dirty water, then stand back and admire your fresh, clean carpets. They'll be touch dry and ready to walk on again in just an hour or two.
Dual V Technology
Gone are the days when deep cleaning your carpets was a job you had to put aside a whole day for. The Rapide Ultra’s patented Dual V twin air path technology leaves 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.
Revitalises your carpets
PowerJet technology pumps jets of cleaning solution deep into the pile to dislodge trapped dirt and odours. The brushbar rotates rapidly, loosening embedded dirt and giving you a really thorough clean. This rotating action also grooms your carpet's fibres and the suction lifts the pile, so it feels soft and springy to the touch.
Tough on stubborn stains
If your carpet has stubborn spots and stains, use the Rapide Ultra 2's pre-treatment kit to break down dirt before you wash. Simply use the wand to apply the pre-treatment solution to the affected areas, leave for around 15 minutes and wash as normal.

Previously having no easy way to clean my carpets, the cream mid-pile carpet had flattened and turned a mottled shade of brown especially on the through routes from Hall to Living room and those from the Utility to the Dining room. I had stains on the floor from where Coffee and Cola had spilled in awkward places and had desperately tried to soak it up with old towels over the years.
The Vax Rapide's box is not of a wasteful size; all supplementary tools are tucked in convenient spaces so as to fill the box.
The Carpet Cleaner itself is quite heavy to lift, yet upon using, is surprisingly easy to manoeuvre. To fill with Vax detergent and tepid water was simple with uncomplicated instructions and with the use of a measuring jug and spoons and a funnel, the tank filled without spillage or complication.
I used the pre-treatment wand and solution on the ground in stains, this solution only has to remain on the Carpet for 10-15 minutes before continuing with the Main Clean, leaving sufficient time to thoroughly rinse the tank and refill with the correct ratio of the main cleaning solution.
As mentioned before, the unit is almost effortless to push and pull despite myself having back and walking problems. The mechanism to disperse the fluid is a cinch to master and upon releasing the button and pulling back seeing the dirt filled water being sucked up was wonderfully satisfying.
Immediately after what felt like a deep clean, I felt the carpet with my hand; it was damp, but not wet.Read more ›
On unpacking, it didn't seem like there was much to assemble thankfully. It was just a case of attaching the handle, which was easy enough as it clicks into place with a locking pin. Written instructions as well as diagrams are provided to guide you through this process which takes only a few seconds.
The only other thing that needed to be assembled was the pre-treatment kit. Again this was a simple process of attaching the wand to the handle and wrapping the tube around the holder for storage as shown on the diagrams, but to be honest, when looking at the machine itself it is apparent where these are meant to go and how they fit. I just referred to the instructions to ensure I had indeed assembled it correctly.
Once assembled and ready to go, the machine looked solid and good quality.
There were four pages of diagrams and instructions in the booklet and I am the type of person who is easily put off when faced with a load of instructions.
I decided to just start at the beginning and follow the instructions, hoping that it would prove to be easier than it looked. Thankfully, it was.
Included with the machine is a bottle of Vax Ultra Solution and also a bottle of pre-treatment solution.
The first step was to pour some of the pre-treatment solution into a jug and dilute with warm water, before pouring into the clean water tank which is located at the front of the machine. It would be easier if vax included a measuring device such as a jug but they don't. Most of my time was spent measuring out water and solution. The tank is easy to remove and I began to pour in the solution.
This is where I found the first and only fault with this machine.Read more ›
In all honesty the hardest part was in getting it out of the box. It slotted together in a perfectly obvious way and was ready for use in no time.
Our large living room rug which covers the fitted carpet in there is almost as old as I am and even though it has been cleaned on numerous occasions in one way or another came up cleaner than I can ever remember seeing it before, though the water that came out of the collection tank was a colour I couldn't believe considering that I often sit on it.
The hall carpet which is rather newer but takes considerable punishment particularly from our two dogs also came up like new. But it was the stair carpet that was the biggest surprise. This had never been effectively cleaned and not only did it come up as clean and new looking as the hall but the procedure was also thankfully easy to do due to the hose attachment, which meant that the Vax could stand in the hall or on the landing while the stairs were cleaned.
All of the above was accomplished with just 4 litres of warm water and 160mil of the supplied cleaning fluid.Read more ›
