      I was in the market for a deep carpet cleaner and wanted to find something that would be easier to use than the commercial rug cleaner you would typically rent from a store, something that was quieter, portable-friendly, and more than capable of handling some common carpet stains from high-traffic areas in the home. After reading some reviews, I chose this particular product, and was pleasantly surprised at how well it worked as advertised: it deep cleaned my carpet, lifted the stains in one go, quickly dried several areas as I finished another room, and remained relatively quiet like our vacuum. Aside from the many positive things about it, there were a few minor negatives during the whole cleaning process: for one, this unit definitely burned through warm water relatively fast, so I needed to empty the water tank and refill it about 2-4 times more than the dirty water tank, but it only took a couple of minutes to stop in between carpet treatments; second, depending on how much carpet area you want to touch up on, expect the small carpet cleaning solution reservoir to be the next thing to have to refill with another bottle, but this part lasted longer than expected, getting through a whole living room; and third, the product, through constant use, does in fact get heavier over time, so expect it to weigh more than when you began as it collects the majority of the water you had originally poured into it--your arm will get fatigued after 10-15 minutes. In my overall experience with this cleaner, I still highly recommend it to get the job done at its current market price, so you are definitely getting more bang for your buck right now during the shopping season. I just recommend you pick up 2-3 bottles of cleaning solution too! It is definitely easy to assemble and disassemble, clean out all working parts with water, and makes cleaning your carpet very easy, and seeing the results as you go is definitely rewarding.

      well I would like to say this cleaner does as it says it will. its easy and lightweight and is easy to empty in between jobs. the only thing I would say dont expect clear water if your renting and just cleaning up as maintenance or some spring cleaning. I know when I buy a house it will have new carpet if older then 1yr. as for pet smells or bathroom issues, I would say it works nicely, and takes care of smell but dont be discouraged if not gone after one cleaning, I would wait a week and clean steamer real good between spots from pet stuff. so as to not have the smell linger in the air. I have tested also that using fabulouso (a pine or floor cleaner) to add a lavender (citrus or pine) and more cleaning power does help with the smell, the cleaners they offer dont have in much of a way to freshen the smell of the cleaning job. it hasn't messed up yet, but I would also caution to watch or do 1/4 scented cleaner and rest their brand or Bissell's rug cleaner, the Fabulouso is just there for smell and all. if you do add a floor cleaner for scent and whatnot, make sure to clean the tank out nicely and throughly, and cehck tubes to make sure nothing clogs over time.

      Extremely efficient machine!

      First off,gladly,the set up was surprisingly easy and straightforward.Fearing that I might have needed a bit of time to setup this bad boy,I waited for more than a week for a clear schedule,and boy was I wrong.Barely over half an hour.This machine goes deep but what really impressed me most of all was the rinsing capacity.The transparent nozzle not only lets you see the water as it is being sucked from the carpet but it just kept sucking dirty water from areas that didn't even feel that wet to the touch.And like I said,you can clearly see it in process.I repeated the rinse multiple times until the draw-off got satisfactorily clearer,but also out of amazement at the efficiency involved.In the end what was left was a barely dampened carpet that was no where near to the inconvenienvce that I had anticipated from the start.Yes,I could actually sit on it and that's no exaggeration.For both price and quality you can hardly go wrong with this Hoover.

      I like this carpet cleaner. I researched the Bissell Pet Pro and this Hoover Power Scrub Elite. Based on the reviews, both units were neck and neck. It seems as though both have a huge and positive following. My deciding factors on the Hoover over the Bissell were the following: The hoover has a 11 amp motor. The Bissell only had a 6.8 amp motor. The hoover has larger water bins. The hoover is a 12 inch wide cleaning foot print. The hoover has $189 as compared to the Bissell at $249. For me it became a clear decision. I couldn't be happier with it. Check out my picture. The proof is in the dirty water.

      This was bought to replace an old Bissell Pro 2X heat unit. That one was good but always leaked. Again that was the older unit. I got this one since it had a different way of scrubbing the carpet with rotating brushes. It works well. Here's my pro/con summary: Pro: Great suction and sucks up most of the water it puts down. Did a great job pulling up the dirt Light weight compared to my old unit and easy to carry Like the separated clean/dirty water compartments. Con: Too much plastic (but this makes is lighter) Attaching the hand wand is a pain. This is my biggest gripe as this is one thing I liked using. Almost seems like they made it a pain so you buy the hand held unit only. Overall...I would buy this again even with my cons.

      Very Disappointed

      Looks like I will have the first negative review on this product. We bought this yesterday. I used it for about 30 mins yesterday afternoon and it was OK, although its cleaning abilities didn’t seem to be any better than any other common cleaner we’ve used. This morning I got up to finish our living room and used it for about 20 mins when all of the sudden it started making a loud whaling sound and rattling. I had just emptied the dirty water reservoir, so I knew it wasn’t that filling up. When I tilted it back there were metal shards all over the floor. At first I thought I had ran over something, but I turned it back on while I was looking under it and could tell it was spitting metal shavings out of the pump housing. It’s going back to the store today (an hour away I might add). Maybe we just got a lemon.

      was the perfect size for the apartment I'm in.works very well and the pro heat drys the carpets in like 15-20 minutes. and the upholstery attachment works great on the furniture. was about to do my whole living room & bedroom plus the hallway within 2 hours and everything was dry and put back! the hoover is a great product.It was very easy to put together only two screws that had to attach the handle using philllips head screwdriver ( not in the box) and within five minutes it's ready to use

      This is our second Hoover carpet cleaner. The first lasted 7 years. We spot clean our carpets frequently due to our two dogs and we do full carpet cleaning a couple of times per year. The new unit seems reasonably well built. Obviously, it is mostly plastic but it is not flimsy. The best feature is the large capacity clean water reservoir as that means fewer refills. The unit cleans very well with deep cleaning into the carpet. The suction is very efficient so it leaves minimal amount of water and soap on the carpet after cleaning. Just be sure to move slowly. Don't move the unit as you would a vacuum cleaner as you need to give the unit time to dampen the carpet, scrub it and then suction away the dirt and water. A good buy!
