I bought this to clean an 8 x 10 area rug and the upholstery of my couch. I have a good that leaves saliva marks on my light colored couch and needed something to get it out.
Cleaning the large rug was a breeze. I could see all the dirty water it was sucking up. However, I had 2 small stains on the carpet that still remained even after going over it several times. I also noticed that after drying, my carpet didn't smell any fresher than before. It still smells of my dog, which is disappointing.
As for the couch upholstery...what a dreaming mess! The upholstery hose attachment sprayed water and solution everywhere! It soaked the upholstery and the suction barely worked, so it left my fabric completely saturated. The section of couch that I did do, after much scrubbing, still has all the stain marks it had before. Everything else was clean. You can see a distinct color difference where I did it, but ALL of the stains are still there! I was very disappointed in this product and will probably have to end up hiring someone to clean my upholstery for me. What a waste of money!
If I could have chosen "no stars" as an option I would have.
