I had debated back and forth for a while as to whether to rent or buy a carpet cleaner. I decided to purchase one when I figured out that, financially, by using it at least 3 times, it would equate to the cost of a 2 day rental (which I would need). That being said, the "search for the right steam cleaner" began. I researched reviews for Bissell, Hoover, Dirt Devil, and other big chain companies. I discovered that the reviews for the Hoover Steamvac were very positive on all sites, where as other competing models like the Bissle ProHeat 2x had varying reviews. I went to the Walmart store and checked out the box, and noticed it was also on sale for $139.00. So I bought it. I got the machine home and found it pretty easy to assemble. I had it set up in about 15 minutes, I probably could have done it faster, but I couldn't find a screw driver! The directions are easy to understand and adding/removing water is easy. I especially like that it has separate clean/dirty water tanks and also comes with attachments for cleaning upholstery. Also, it didn't mention this on the box, but it did come with a 16 ounce bottle of deep cleaning solution. Then the fun began! I cleared the furniture and started using the steamvac. It was super easy to move and operate. The directions say to do a front and back wet pass followed by a front and back dry pass, I found that doing an extra front and back dry pass really sped up the drying time for the floors. The results were incredible. The tank water was easy to dump and refill, and my carpet turned out phenom! You can totally see the difference it made. I included some before and after pictures so you can see too! I definitely recommend this product!!!!!
