The ideal carpet cleaner for the home!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vax V-124A Dual V Upright Carpet and Upholstery Washer (Kitchen & Home)
Firstly, this item was a staggering half price from Amazon and was delivered very very quickly (is a very big box though!). The item was very easy to assemble. As mentioned in another review the whole thing is made of plastic but don't worry, it is definitely up to the job! The sample size of ultra cleaning solution is just about enough to do a 12 x 12 room so make sure you have more in stock (a high st catalogue store was competitive). When I did my lounge carpet I was appalled at the amount of grime that came out of it, but having 3 old english sheepdogs this shouldn't have been a surprise! Don't overwet the carpet with the trigger and keep your eye on all the tanks, suction is lost even if the clean water dispenser is low. Keep going over the same area until no more water can be seen going into the recovery tank and the carpet will be almost dry to the touch - brilliant! I re-did the same carpet the next day as it was so dirty and it is now like new. Within a couple of days I had done the lounge, landing, stairs and a bedroom and I am delighted with the results. The stairs were very easy but I would recommend using the rotating head. Even the edges of the carpets have come up well and the bounce is back in at every step.
I really can't think of a downside and would recommend this to anyone thinking of buying a carpet cleaner or even hiring one as this makes no sense.
