If you are looking to invest in a deep carpet cleaner, you may want to check out this Hoover SteamVac Power Max with Clean Surge from Amazon.ca for only $149.99 (regularly $299.00).
Whether you are the original owner of your home or you have inherited the previous owner's carpet choice, I think we can all agree that there comes a time when the vacuum is just not cutting it anymore.
We have lived in our home for almost 12 years. We are the original owners. So we can only really blame ourselves for the state of our carpet (and our three boys, it's really all their fault!). But most times, like pretty much everybody else, I don't really notice how tired our carpet is looking, or I choose to ignore it, one or the other. Either way, when I do decide to take my blinders off I can no longer bring myself to turn away. So a few years ago, against my husbands will, I hired a company to come in and clean our floors. My husband begrudgingly moved the majority of the furniture and when it was all said and done moved it all back. It took him a couple of days to truly appreciate it but in the end he admitted that it gave the carpets a much needed facelift.
Fast forward four years and I've been dropping hints that perhaps it's time. However, in the meantime we did invest in a small steam spot remover that has definitely been beneficial and has served us well. So I'm thinking that investing in a larger steam vac that we could use ourselves would be much more cost effective, plus we could truly incorporate this into our yearly cleaning schedule. Plus, at this price we would be even just after one clean!
This unit has received good reviews for the most part:
I didn't realize how dirty my carpets were until I used this.
It comes in parts but is easy to put together and use and it doesn't leave you with a soaked carpet afterwards.
with the only truly disconcerting piece to note, which seems to be prevalent across several different forums is in regards to ensuring the pieces are connected properly to avoid leaking. However I'm sure this is covered in the instructions:
The connections must be connected EXACTLY as directed or leaks will happen. If leaks are happening, reconnect them again. Mine leaked after the second time I used it but it was all user error. It works wonderfully and cleans upholstery and floors with minimal effort!
