For months I wanted to purchase a home carpet cleaner. We researched extensively. I have a senior dog who is almost 18 years old. For a period of time, we were having a problem with diarrhea and, if we did not read his warning signs about having to go out, he would do it on the carpet. Our fault. Not his. Over Labor Day weekend, we decided to clean the carpet; we know how to have fun! We purchased the Hoover Deluxe Carpet Cleaner from Sears along with the extended warranty plan. I was eager to test the product. When we got it home we began. We read the instructions carefully , moved the furniture, looked at the Berber carpet which was an absolute mess and hoped for the best. First I have to say that after reading the negative reviews and trying the product myself, I wonder if those who said it was difficult to use, didn't pick up water, suddenly stopped woking when it hit a bump, did not clean, was using the same product I was. The Hoover Carpet Cleaner exceeded all my expectations. When we were finished with half the room, my husband and I could not believe how clean the dirty, stained carpet was. It looked like new carpet. The Hoover was very easy to operate. It did not suddenly turn off when bumped, picked up so much water that the carpet was dry within two hours and it smelled great. The following day we did the other half of the room. Now the entire room looks like we have new carpet. This is a temporary rental apartment for us ( our house is being restored) and prior to moving in the management had the carpet cleaned. There was one stain in the middle of the room the professionals said they could not get out. The Hoover did. We have used the carpet cleaner several times since Labor Day with no problems.
Purchased this model last night as a replacement for an old Spin Scrub that we had gotten all of the good out of. Took it out of the box today, put it together and went to work on the carpet. After about an hour's use, it started making a horendous noise. I thought I was standing underneath one of the nuclear warning sirens on the poles in my area. I called the number on the unit, and let the female helping me hear it. She said that it sounded like the motor was gone in it. Kinda sucks because this is the second day in a row I've tried to get my carpets cleaned. She said for me to take it back to the place of purchase for another one. Not sure I want another one. Another 45 minute trip to the retailer. We got years of service out of the old Spin Scrub, and it's not looking good for the new model. Also, on a couple of different points...Fix your website; I can't return down to start a new paragraph, and this form will not come up on an Apple product. And, I thought I was buying a trusty, American-made appliance with the name Hoover. But, after looking, it's made in Mexico. If BestBuy offers an additional warranty at the time of purchase, I think in this case, it would be a wise investment.
Very happy with this machine. It's lightweight, manuvers well. Leave our carpet looking new again. Did I mention we have 2 very active cats as well. We definitely recommend this to our friends and all of you as well
works good easy to clean,
stair cleaning option works good
I purchased this product based on its high reviews on the internet! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
The Hoover carpet cleaner I have had for 30 years finally died. Bought a new one today similar to the model that was given to me 30 yrs ago and I love the improvements that have been made. Used the rinse option and couldn't believe the amount of dirt and pet hair this cleaner picked up. My carpets look so much better after just using the rinse option. Love the brushes that have been added to the front of the machine. Great idea for adding a bag to contain all the extra tools. Hope this machine lasts as long as my previous one!
Bought this thing on sale at Target and it is absolutely amazing!! Cleans up everything!!! My dog got sick and pooped on my new carpet and I scrubbed for hours and couldn't get it out. This thing got it done in minutes! Love it!
