5.0 out of 5 stars Got children? Buy one of these.......NOW!!!!, 15 Sep 2008
This review is from: Vax V-125A All Terrain Upright Carpet Washer (Kitchen & Home)
Bought one of these after using a relative's 5 year old Vax washer. How technology has moved along, this unit is just fantastic!

With 2.5 year old twins ensuring that recurring juice, milk, milkshake, biscuits, cake and other random substances end up on the carpet it was time to invest in a good carpet washer.

This unit is great, took only 5 minutes to set up and put the hose, cable tidy clip in place and fill up with some warm water and cleaning solution.

The unit is loud and heavy (feels build to last and the 6 year warranty means Vax are confident in the build quality too), make no mistake! The suction is awesome, and the carpet is nearly dry when you're done - no more damp feet as you'd get with older models.

Now the tricky bit was always getting the fluff and hairs out of the nooks and crannies in the various plastic parts when you're done - not so with this model, the water reservoir and dirty water tank empty and clean effortlessly, and the main inlet where the dirty water is sucked in just needs to be run under a fast running tap to remove any debris. The longest time was taken in getting the fluff out of the scrubbing brushes - fill a sink and swoosh it about - there will be some plucking involved to get them 100% clean.

The unit comes with a second set of brushes for a hard floor, along with a squeegie attachment and hard small bottle of hard floor cleaner for the same application, and the hand held tool makes it great for cleaning the carpets in the car and household stairs - though the hose struggles to reach to the top and the unit is too large to perch on a step as you stretch to the higher steps.

Just remember to order some Ultra cleaning (carpet or hard floor) fluid when you order the unit - the supplied small bottles don't last too long!
