It's definitely a product aimed at people who can't be bothered with the hassle of hire and return, but don't want to spend an absolute fortune just to clean their carpets.

I bought mine prior to moving out of a flat and handing it back to the owners. It left the carpets smelling and looking much fresher, and you wouldn't believe how dirty the water gets. Embarrassing really! The build is very 'plasticy', but it feels sturdy enough and it makes it quite lightweight. It also made a couple of dried-in stains look much better, though elbow grease was required to remove them entirely!

A couple of issues though.. the tanks are fairly small, so you'll need 3-4 re-fills of the clean tank per room if the room is of a reasonable size. We had a large lounge/dining room and that took me 5 refills. For every two refills of the clean tank, you have to empty the dirty tank, so that adds quite a lot of time to the job. The other issue is the noise. As another reviewer mentioned, there are two filters, one on the dirty water tank and one where the dirty tank connects to the machine. The instructions only mention one of these filters for some reason! So unless you clean both filters every time you empty the dirty tank (by removing them and running them under a tap) you'll get a high pitch whining noise.

So in summary, it's a good value machine that ultimately leaves your carpets much much cleaner. It just requires a bit of fiddling and re-filling to get the job done. It's not like you'll be doing this every week, so my advice is just buy it!

£60 - brilliant!

I have an elderly dog who is starting to have accidents. This has been stressing me out because trying to clean up the spots is hard work and time consuming plus I am never sure that the area has been cleaned properly. Solution! this carpet cleaner!

I have bought Vax products in the past and have found them to be excellent quality so that did influence my choice.

Easy to put together, literally 3 screws so the only thing you have to have ready is a screwdriver.

Not as heavy as I thought it would be, with my bad back, that is a bonus!

Very easy to use and it comes with a small bottle of carpet cleaner so once it was assembled I was using it.

Pros:
1. Comes with shampoo
2. Very easy to fill and clean the water chambers
3. Long cord with a well designed storage system
4. When cord is coiled up it fits properly (so many electrical goods I have purchased recently dont)

Cons:
1. As others have mentioned - the noise! It is very noisy and the high pitch squeal is unbearable. However, I just put ear plugs in when I am using it!

I am pleased with this product over all. It does what it says and I now have clean carpets and no stress.

My previous experience cleaning carpets was by hiring a Rug Doctor carpet cleaner, so I will compare to that...

On a positive note, compared to a Rug Doctor, this cheap, bottom of the range Vax is more portable and light and, because the handle folds down flat, it both can be stored more easily (e.g. under a bed) and can also be used to clean under some furniture (like chairs, chests of drawers etc) without even having to move it out the way at all. Its also quieter, akin perhaps to a loud and whiney vacuum cleaner - the difference being, out of politeness, I would warn my neighbour when I'm using a Rug Doctor, but no need with this.

However, compared to a Rug Doctor (which to be fair would cost a lot more to buy) the cleaning power is just not in the same league. My grubby carpets (I have a cream carpet, kids and the front door opens straight to the street) now look fresher, smell nicer and are certainly a little cleaner, noticeably so, but definitely not 100% clean. Firstly, the suction on the device is just not up to the job, with noticeably a lot more liquid being pushed into the carpet than is sucked back out again. This means both that the dirt is not fully extracted and that the carpets are wetter and take a lot longer to dry. Secondly, whilst there is a substantial brush on the front of the device, this is a static push along affair, it doesn't rotate and is not motorised at all, hence it helps very little, whereas a Rug Doctor would very aggressively agitate the carpet whilst it was cleaning.

Note also there is no upholstery tool, so stair cleaning is pretty much out.

I have read the review above, (MAD) and I do not know what they are talking about.
I have just purchased this machine and used it for the first time today, it is a great little machine, easy to assemble, easy to use, (If you read the manual FIRST).
It did not leave the carpet soaking wet and did a really good job of cleaning it.

I wanted to give a review whilst I was still in a state of shock... My 'darling' son has just rubbed Heinz bright red ravioli (after demanding that he had it in the supermarket earlier today!) into my cream carpet and left it undiscovered for over an hour.... After mopping the thick of it up to leave a dark red/orange stain deep in my carpet (when I say he'd rubbed it in oh had the boy out his heart into making sure every fiber was coated!) I am absolutely shocked to the point of near tears that this vac has gotten every last reminent of that vile sauce out of my carpet I genuinely thought it was ruined forever!!! Absolutely gob smacked given it was a mere 50 quid!!!! Will 100% recommend after tonight's fiasco!
