Why Use a Carpet Cleaner?
Using a vacuum cleaner on your carpets isn’t enough to lift out the ground in dirt that lives deep within your carpets and rugs. There’s a lot of dirt and debris that even the strongest vacuum cleaner can’t lift. By using a carpet cleaner embedded dirt left behind will be removed to ensure a high standard clean throughout your home. Washing your carpets will prolong your carpet life, maintain colour vitality and kill allergens lurking within your carpets, rugs and upholstery. Using a carpet cleaner will bring a fresh lease of life to what you once thought were old and over-due carpets.
The Vax Dual V Advance Reach carpet cleaner helps bring your carpets back to life in a few easy steps by using water, Vax detergent and patented Vax technologies to remove embedded dirt.
This Dual V Advance Reach not only washes your carpets but also rinses and extracts dust for good results. After you’ve shampooed your carpet, there will be some residue left behind within the carpet pile that can attract dirt. However, with the built in rinse function on the Dual V Advance Reach, you can simply repeat the process with water only. This will ensure all shampoo residue is rinsed from your carpet for a more thorough clean.
After washing and rinsing, the max extract feature then uses its maximum suction to extract any water leaving your carpets as dry as possible. Using the max extract feature combined with heated cleaning you’ll be ready to walk on your carpets within a matter of hours, making this convenient and time efficient for you and your family.
The Vax Dual V Advance Reach carpet cleaner also features Dual V technology which further helps with the fast drying time. Channels of suction are spread evenly across the floor head providing an edge to edge clean that helps carpets dry even quicker. Having multiple suction channels allows for more liquid to be extracted therefore leaving less within your carpets.
The Vax Dual V Advance Reach also has SpinScrub technology that consists of rotating SpinScrub brushes that agitate the carpet fibres to easily lift out tough dirt, stains and grime. These are much more effective than regular brushes as they powerfully rotate alongside each other covering a wider cleaning path for a deeper clean.
The Vax W87DVT Dual V Advance Reach Carpet Cleaner
The Automix cleaning system ensures you don’t have to pre-mix water and solution. The water and solution tanks are separate and the machine decides on the correct mix of water and solution so you don’t have to. This will gain the correct consistency for optimal cleaning results and ensures you don’t use too much or too little solution.
The Vax Dual V Advance Reach carpet cleaner is suitable for cleaning carpets around your home and has an upholstery tool and long reach hose so you can clean your stairs and everything above the floor. The hose and 10 m cord enables easy stair cleaning as it extends so you don’t have to carry the machine with you on every stair. The hose simply attaches to the machine and will effectively remove stains and dirt from your stairs.
The Dual V Advance Reach also comes equipped with a wash tool and a motorised SpinScrub tool to help maximise your clean for different areas and surfaces around your home. The wash tool has tough brushes which are suitable for scrubbing any stains or high traffic areas as you can apply as much pressure as you feel necessary while the brushes, solution and water work into the stain. The SpinScrub motorised brush can also be attached to the end of your hose to clean more delicate furniture such as upholstery, mattresses and car interiors. These brushes spin and therefore do the hard work for you. They’re also quiet delicate meaning they won’t damage any fabrics.
The Vax Dual V Advance Reach comes equipped with a small bottle of Ultra+ solution to get you started. This formula helps brighten your carpet, remove stains and leave behind a fresh scent. Vax recommends buying a larger bottle to clean bigger areas.
Maintaining the machine is easy as everything stores on board neatly. Each compartment comes apart and clicks back into place for easy cleaning. The brushes can also be removed so you can remove any hair or dirt collected during your clean, however Vax recommends vacuuming thoroughly before using any carpet cleaner. These easy design features will help you maintain the machine as per your own convenience as often as you feel necessary.
With all the tools, tanks and hose placed on board, it makes the machine much easier to store in small spaces. The handle can also recline to ensure it fits into a cupboard, making it suitable for smaller households.

On initial observation the unit is large, and will take a lot of room to store. However on set up I begin to realise that the storage footprint is a minor gripe when compared to the functionality. The cleaner has all the bells and whistles. Filling the cleaner is even simpler than usual - it has two tanks, one for water and one for carpet cleaner, you don't have to measure the liquid out. Separate tanks has another bonus too - a rinse function without having to empty out and refill with water. Just flick the switch to rinse and away you go.
Both clean and dirty water tanks are large. For a very deep clean, a fill will do around one hallway, whereas a standard living room will take around 2 tanks. Emptying the dirty tank is simple too, it flips open and there's no cloth or sponge filter to pick fluff out of as there was in my last cleaner.
Cleaning performance is excellent - the rotating edge brushes really do make a difference, and one point to note here too, the unit cleans over its full width. Many cleaners have a "dead spot" at one edge where the drive belt sits and you find that the left or right two inches aren't actually functional and this means you lose width and have to make more passes of the unit on the carpet, not so here.
As far as cleaning method, same as with any other carpet cleaner, slow and smooth is the key. You have to move it much more slowly than a vacuum cleaner and it's heavier, so cleaning will take longer and expect a room to take an hour or so for three passes (wash, rinse, max suction-see below).
Final note, there's an extra function called "max suction" to dry the carpet faster, a flick of a switch and press a pedal and you turn off the brushes and go to suction only - this apparently increases the suction power. This leaves the carpet with much less water in it. In my tests using this function, our hall carpet was dry within about 30 minutes and living room within about an hour as it's a deeper pile.
Overall - this unit is the best carpet cleaner I've used and is a real upgrade over lower models like the one I had before. It feels very close in quality and performance to a professional cleaner you'd pay a lot to rent. I cannot recommend it highly enough - If you have the room to store it.
I love the fact that when one of the children spill drinks etc on the floor, this seamlessly gets up the mess even from Ribena which is one we have always struggled with.
This model feels and looks more solid and substantial than some of the cheaper alternatives that are available. It appears to be indestructible which is a good thing!
Its easy to set up, just plug bits together, and your ready to use.
There are two tanks, one for water one for cleaning fluid.
does it work? yes it does, it does clean well, i tend to soak the carpet, so that it cleans deeply, so have to refill the water tank a few times.
It does however dry out within 20 minutes.
Its heavy, so its not the easiest thing to lug around the house, or take up the stairs.
The staircase/spill attachment is good, but they could have used a better handle.
It is able to reach the top of a standard staircase too.
Its not able to vacuum things like pet hairs, but it is able to lift them out of rugs/carpets, so you need to vacuum afterwards.
I've only had to refill the detergent compartment twice, in order to clean the whole house, but used about 10 refills of the water tank. (2 bedrooms, bathroom, stairs, sitting room and dinning room).
Its a great product, and did lift a number of stains out the carpet, just depends on your physical strength to lift and scrub.
Out of the box it is very easy to put together with the separate handle clicking in to the main upright cleaner body. There are two half brackets that fix to the back which you store the hose attachment too. The clean water tank sits above and has two compartments, one holds the clean water the other holds the detergent. Once filled with warm 40 degree water and Vax cleaning detergent, you plug in and are ready to vax.
The cleaner is really easy to move around. There is a trigger on the handle and you simply push this to release the clean water and detergent on the forward motion then let go on the backward motion. Once you have finished washing your carpet, you have two options. A rinse mode to make sure you get all the detergent out of the carpet and a max extract mode which sucks all the water out the carpet We never bothered with the rinse mode and just used max extract and were very impressed with the results. The carpet was practically dry.
Our old Vax that we had for the last three years was good but this Vax Cleaner is in a different league. One of the best buys on Amazon and much cheaper to get from here than direct from Vax.
