This review is from: Vax 6131T 3-in-1 Multivax Dry Vacuum and Carpet Washer (Kitchen & Home)
Many, many years ago I owned the first Vax and it worked wonderfully well for some considerable time.
Now I require an affordable carpet-cleaner again and so looked to the various models available now. In the end I turned to this, familiar to me but improved somewhat.
As a vacuum-cleaner it is very powerful, being able to reach under furniture with the long hose. It moves easily on the four castors and requires disposable bags to collect the debris inside. For cleaning in busy or somewhat cluttered areas this is very good but I do prefer my Dyson's rotating brushes for lifting the carpet pile as it cleans. It also somewhat noisy - something that I remember well from the older model.
Where it does win hands-down though is as a carpet cleaner. And this is where some improvements have been made over the years. It has two buttons on the top - one for the main power (used when vacuuming) and another for a pump, which pushes the cleaning solution down a plastic tube into the cleaning heads that this comes with. I don't recall the original model having this and it does work very well.
The plastic heads used for the carpet-cleaning have switches on them to stop the water flowing, so they can then suck the water off the carpet. It leaves the carpet slightly damp but a lot drier than I recall.
It can be hard work and I find that after cleaning a carpet my back ached, because of the effort in dragging the hose back and forth but it is so much cheaper than the upright models.
At this price it is very good value (some of the models can cost several hundred pounds) and I'm glad that this type of Vax is still around.
