 Customer Comments

The hall carpet which is rather newer but takes considerable punishment particularly from our two dogs also came up like new. But it was the stair carpet that was the biggest surprise. This had never been effectively cleaned and not only did it come up as clean and new looking as the hall but the procedure was also thankfully easy to do due to the hose attachment, which meant that the Vax could stand in the hall or on the landing while the stairs were cleaned.

It realy gets the dirt out of your carpets and looking like new, easy to operate, even on stairs, I was really surprised how good it was and would recommend it, IT WAS WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY I PAID FOR IT.

Brilliant at lifting tons of dirt out of really grimy carpets. Just be careful that you don't keep your finger on the orange switch at the top of the handle - it constants pumps out the liquid. If you do that, you end up with a carpet that remains wet for longer. For the final sweep of the carpet try to suck up as much of the liquid as possible by not holding down the aforementioned orange switch.
Also it's quite heavy - my wife struggled to push and pull it around. Another issue is that you can't clean the inside of the chamber that the dirty liquid is sucked up into after you have emptied it.
