Rapide Ultra W90-RU-B Carpet Cleaner,
This review is from: Vax W90-RU-B Rapide Ultra Upright Carpet and Upholstery Washer (Kitchen & Home)
This is an excellent carpet cleaner that does exactly what it says it should.
Assembley is easy to do - although the instruction leaflet provided is for this model and the pre-treated model too and can be a little confusing - but only took 5 minutes to get together.
Using the carpet cleaner couldn't be easier. The instructions do say to vaccum thoroughly and this is a must - especially in all the nooks and crannies! I started by using the hand tool to do the edges which was easy to do - the hose attaches to the front of the machine at dirty water tank with a smaller hose that connects to the clean water/cleaner solution tank. I have experienced some problems with this connection due to pressure on the smaller hose but have found if you're quite forceful when connecting then it stays on.
Using the main machine is just like vaccuming - only you press a button to release the cleaner into the carpet when going forward and then release when going back and watch all the dirty water being sucked back into the machine (same principle on the hand tool too).
The carpets have dried really quickly - as the suction is really efficient!
I have also used this on our sofa and its been brilliant!
We have children that are always spilling milk, orange .. well, everything really and this has been excellent and saves a lot of time tryig to clean spills as you can use the hand tool to deal with spills quickly and efficiently - much better than using foam cleaners that you leave then vaccumm as my children dont repond to "dont touch that" for more than 5 seconds - let alone 2 hours :-)
I have hired machines in the past for over £60 a time and they have not been as good as this one. My carpets are super clean and look fantastic - the dirty water is a real wow factor and makes you realise where the heavy traffic areas are in your house.
If you need a cleaner - then I would pick this one as I have been most impressed!
