I bought this rug cleaner to replace an old Electrolux carpet cleaner, and I must say, I have been impressed. The price of this cleaner was just $40 more than a new set of brushes for the old cleaner.
This unit is used for cleaning carpet, area rugs and tile floors. The scrubbing action is great. It was powerful enough to clean a 10x12 ft rug in 15 minutes. I've cleaned five rugs and two large tile floors, and have been happy with the results. The thing you have to take note of, is that this cleaner does not vacuum up the water. It is a scrubber/buffer only. When I use it on area rugs, I take them to the driveway, scrub, rinse, then squeegee off the excess water, then leave them to dry. On carpets indoor, I either use one of the dry foam type cleaners and vacuum after dry, or scrub, then use a wet/dry vac to remove excess water. The amount of water released when pulling the trigger is kind of scant, so if I am outdoors, I just pour a bucket of soapy water on the rug. On tile floors, the amount released is okay, but you will still have to wet/dry vac, mop, or use towels to clean up the dirty water. Overall, I think this scrubber is a great deal for the good job it does, and the versatility of the machine.
