Good but NOISY!!,
This review is from: Vax V-026RD Rapide Deluxe Upright Carpet and Upholstery Washer (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I used this in my new house to clean my matress and carpets. The instructions were quite easy to follow when putting the Vax together although we had a little trouble slotting a few of the pieces into place. It's quite light weight when it's empty and comes with it's own shampoo and clear instructions for how to follow it. When we first turned the Vax on my mum was standing a few steps away reading me what to do and it was so noisy I couldn't hear her, even standing next to each other you had to shout into someones ear to be able to hear over the Vax. That said it was very easy to operate and the suction on it when sucking up dirty water was very very strong and worked really well. I had a little trouble when using the hose and pressing the button to spray water and ended up getting it all over the walls anytime I went near one but that was probably just because I'd never used one before. The Vax was very easy to empty, clean and put back together when I'd finished using it.
Overall I was very pleased with the results and ease of use of the Vax my only drawback was the noise. If you're only going to use it for a short while I guess you could live with the noise but for prolonged use I think it is too noisy.

Excellent machine, admittedly a little noisy, but you're not going to use it every day!, Big mistake though - I put 'RUG DOCTOR CARPER DETERGENT' into it, instead of Vax fluid! ah ah, (luckily Vax quickliy replaced the machine, at no cost to me. The carpets came up beautiful, and after a bad winter, with a dirty bull-terrier in the house - Just what the doctor ordered!, WELL worth the money.

Hi Mr/mrs Matthews,
Can you tell me why it was wrong to put rug doctor carpet cleaner in the machine please? I have a full container of this stuff and was hoping to use it up!

I agree that it is incredibly noisy. I am puzzled as to how it got through noise limits because it left my ears ringing. I have had to wear ear-defenders!

I have used Rug Doctor in this machine - it said it was suitable for any carpet cleaner. I have had no problems using it.

How dry does this machine leave the carpets?
Is it a case of having to move everything out of a room or can furniture be moved from one side to other after cleaning?
