Fantastic cleaner for carpets,
This review is from: Vax Dual Power Carpet Cleaner, 2.7 L, Graphite and Orange (Kitchen & Home)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
We received this carpet cleaner a few days ago, and immediately tried it out on what we considered to be the most heavily soiled area with the highest footfall: i.e the downstairs hall. Initial results were impressive with very noticeable improvement in the overall colour of the carpet. Of course, the dirty water gives you an indication that you are actually removing considerable amounts of dirt from your carpet, but I have to say after giving it 24 hours to dry out ( not that it is that damp afterwards anyway) that the results are very noticeable. Not only that, but the effects of washing and drying your carpet help give it a slightly "fluffed up" effect meaning that some of the pile effect is regained and your carpets look more fluffy & plumped up. Of course, you don't have to go around frantically washing all your carpets, and you can use it on upholstery as well or just rely on it to mop up spill ages.
The unit is lightweight at just over 5 kg meaning it is easy to handle and manoeuvre.
My only criticism of this appliance is that there is facility to use this on the stairs. There are other Vax products that come with a hose to enable cleaning of your stairway carpets (or your car interior) so if you are considering purchasing one I personally would go with one of the other models, as I solely miss this function on this particular model. However as a basic carpet cleaner this is an excellent product I can easily recommend.
