      Great carpet cleaner


      I was skeptical at first because I wasn’t planning on buying this product. The one I researched wasn’t available anywhere and by time I found it all the sales were over. I bought this one and B.B. offered price match and I purchased a warranty as well so I was still ahead of the game. I got it home and as the instructions say VACUUM FIRST.... then I pretreated my rug and then assembled the cleaner. I am a tenant so it’s important that this do the trick as I have a large dog. The previous tenants had dogs as well and they marked all over the carpet and it was never cleaned properly. Ok down to business: The assembly wasn’t bad at all literally 3 screws on the whole thing. I put it together filled the tank and started. I used Walmart brand carpet solution and that was pretty decent. All in all I was very pleased with the performance. It’s a little difficult to Operate when your back is too close to the wall but it maneuvers very well and it wasn’t too heavy or cumbersome. The suction was really good and as this was my first Hoover carpet cleaner I don’t have a lot to go on but still wear shoes until it’s thoroughly dried. You do need to empty and refill the tanks often but I’m perfectly fine with that as this machine did what I needed it to do. I tried the attachment it’s a little hard to assemble at first and I really don’t have much use for it but it was okay in my opinion. All in all I’m dry pleased with this purchase and as always HOover has not let me down. Attached is a pic of the carpet from when I cleaned. On the left is the clean side and the right(brown side) is the dirty side. Keep in mind I was told the carpet was naturally brown when in actuality it’s cream colored. I guess they thought I didn’t notice where the sofas were. Hahahaha Hope this review helps you out a bit.

      Good Floor Cleaner - Ridiculous Attatcment Process


      The floor scrubber/shampooer actually did a pretty good job. I have three dogs. Removing the dirty water canister is slightly difficult you have to balance to handle while using both hands to pick the container up as there is no handle on the dirty water container. A minor problem when trying to refill the water, the cap would not come off in the open position, I readjusted several times but had to pull out a flathead screwdriver to pry the cap Off jabbing myself and my hand. After avoiding a near death accident, I continued to clean the floor and it did a very good job. Then, came the attachments. You need to be a gymnast or be extremely flexible. Your vision must be very good and again you will need the screwdriver and possibly face another near death experience. After figuring out how to connect it all together, bending upside down, sitting on the floor , disassembling the shampooer, finally you think the attachments are connected, wrong they are not, repeat, disassemble, recheck attachments. But as usual the attachments are almost useless. No surprises most attachments are useless. First the instructions are ridiculous, hard to understand, the imagery is very tiny, difficult and confusing . I would give the attachments NEGATIVE 5. If you have no steps or unhulstery or no use for attachments I would definitely recommend the shampooer on just floors. Sadly I sent my husband to Best Buy to purchase this today after two days of research.

      Great Rug Cleaner

      The Hoover Steam Vac is just what I wanted and need. It did a very good job on my loft carpeting and the stairs. You have to switch to the stairs attachment, but it was simple to attach and easy to use and the stairs look as good as the loft. It doesn’t clean as good as a professional cleaner, but I am very pleased with the results. It’s been almost 3 weeks since I cleaned the carpets and they are still looking freshly cleaned. I am also pleased that the carpets dried very quickly, especially since I have two long-haired cats. It does a super job picking up cat hair. It doesn’t take long to assemble and it isn’t too heavy, which is really important for me as I am fairly petite. Although it isn’t recommended for tile floors, I tried it on mine. Unfortunately, the tile didn’t look any better. In summary, given it’s reasonable cost, I think it’s an excellent value.

      Stop renting a carpet cleaner!!

      This carpet cleaner exceeded my expectations. It was easy to assemble, use and clean! The results were fabulous and the carpets dried so quickly! I have 2 dogs and 3 children and the carpets were stained and starting to feel a bit crunchy. I have rented a carpet cleaner before and was happy with the results. And had planned to rent a machine again but was waiting for the rainy season to end and then the dogs got sick and kept throwing up and so then I was waiting for that to stop. Then- I had an idea! Just buy the machine and you can clean up anything that comes up... best decision ever. Love the carpet cleaner, the results and the fact that I can use it anytime I need.

      Lighter than older model


      I have an older model that I have had for about 10 years. This model is a lot lighter. I finally broke down and replaced my older model because the solution stopped spraying out of the bottom. I’ve been using my older model for several years with tape on the suction tube. (lol) I’m sure the hose cracking is sure to be expected after many years of use and abuse. The tape has been working fine, but when it stopped spraying the solution it was time for a new one. I find this model to be just as good as my older one. It cleans very well and only leaves the floor slightly damp. For those who say it doesn’t suck well and leaves the floor wet, must be rushing. Take your time and do slow strokes and your floor will only be slightly damp and dry completely within an hour.

      Terrific for apartments!

      Love this product - not heavy, not too big to store even in a small apt with limited storage space, and does light to heavy jobs with ease and totally positive end result. It was a bit tricky to assemble, but it really performs well on the scrubbing feature and wash water retrieval from application area. No extended (no walk over after use) dry time needed. I've avoided treated areas for 30 mins to an hour, and carpet reaacts just great! (ie, it bounces back to fluffy almost immediately, but as with all carpet washing, always best to leave fibers a little bit of time to recover completely before smushing down underfoot)

      Good carpet cleaner for the money

      I bought this when our water heater sprung a leak and we had to replace it. Water went 20 feet out in the basement family room and I didn't want to have to tear it out because of mold and replace it so I ran to BB and got this the same day. It sucked up all the water and the shampoo cleaner made the carpet smell fresh. It does take time and patience to suck up a lot of water so don't expect to be done in 20 minutes or whatever. It took over an hour to suck all the water out of the carpet. Still, I am very pleased with the result and a month later we have no mold or mildew.

      Great for the price point.

      I have had this for about a month, I have used it a few times and it has done a wonderful job with pet messes. My carpet comes out so clean and looks new after each use. My only gripe about it is where they have to store the tools, my tool didn’t stay on so I had to find some place in my Closet to keep it. Also, most carpet cleaners have full lines, this does not so you are guessing how much solution and water to use. I also don’t love the way you attach the tools to use them. It could be a simpler process. However, despite all of that i am happy with my purchase as it does a great job doing what it is meant to do.
