5.0 out of 5 stars Great carpet cleaner, 15 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vax V-026RD Rapide Deluxe Upright Carpet and Upholstery Washer (Kitchen & Home)
Having made the risky decision to buy biege wool carpet for the stairs a couple of years back and probably not vacuuming as often as we should, I invested in this Vax. I am very pleased with the product.

Some reviews complain about the difficulty in assembling the cleaner out of its box, but I had no problems. There is one slightly misleading diagram which shows three bolts when you should only see two, but if you can assemble anything from Ikea you will have no problems with the Vax. Once assembled, all that was necessary was to fill the tank and add the solution.

Seeing the tank fill up with dirty water gives you a good idea of the amount of dirt in an average carpet (you will be surprised) and the Vax lifted out a lot of dirt and left the carpet fairly dry. The brushes restored the pile on the carpet and it has got its bounce back. Using the hand tool for the stairs was of course a lot slower but not ineffective. As others have said, this is a noisy cleaner, but that is because it has a very powerful motor which sucks up the water and dirt very well.

I would recommend getting one of these rather than hiring, as you can also use it to clean spills and it does a good job with furniture as well. All in all it's great!
