we have two children and a 9 week old puppy,we have a upright carpet cleaner, but with the addition of a new puppy to the family, the upright was just a pain to drag out for spot cleaning.we originally went into walmart to buy the more expensive dirt devil portable spot cleaner, but they were out of them,so we looked at this model and it looked like it might just do the job,even though it was half the price of the other models.let me tell you what, this thing works great.the scrubbing brush work excellent, it is hooked updirect to motor so it has good scrubbing power,better than the units that have the hose from the unit with attachments, those do not scrub worth a darn.the vacuum suction works great, I did notice that you do have to put a little weight on unit to suck up the dirty water but if you want to suck up all of the dirty water from floor that is expected.I think alot of people have problems with the floor being wet after they clean it is because they are squirting too much solvent onto the carpet.on this unit, i just use a little solvent on the stain, turn on the scrubbing brush and then switch over to the vacuum of the unit. with the new puppy, we have already had a few mishaps with potty training and this thing works great,even with the kids and those darn sippy cups that say they wont drip, but they do, this machine works great and for under 40 dollars, you cant beat it.the water and treatment resovoir is small,i malmost took it back because i thought that i would have to fill it back up after every spot clean session, but i was wrong,i have done about 15 spot cleans,which some have been pretty good size area spot cleans and there is still plenty of treated water in it, so dont let the look of the small resovoir fool you. it is a great machine and i would recommend this product to anyone.this machine ,i think is better than the 100 dollar models that have the hose attachment.it does have a great cord wrap on it to keep extension wrapped up nice.
