OK, let me just tell you that the past week has been nothing but research, research, research. After purchasing a competitor's last Saturday, only because I saw the infomercial the night prior, I was extremely upset, annoyed, and disappointed when its performance was less than 20%. (And that is being nice.)
So, now a very skeptical consumer, I decide to give the Hoover Max Extract a shot. My family has used Hoover products for as long as I can remember and I remember only excellent products with exceptional service.
I am pleased to say I was not let down this time either. Upon getting home with my new product, eager to use it, and pressed for time, I had the Hoover Max Extract assembled and ready to go in no time. After completing the first room, I was Shocked by my results. The extracted water/solution was BLACK!! I knew it was dirty, but really? WOW! Plus, the amount in the collection container was just about the exact amount I dispensed. I didn't think it to be possible, given my track record with previous carpet cleaners.
All in All, light weight, thorough clean, maybe a bit loud(but so what), and at a decent price. What more would you need? Maybe continuous performance...Got it too.
This review is made by me with no outside influences, and is strictly from my own person experience with the product. I highly recommend the Hoover Max Extract. I can not express my gratitude enough to Hoover and the Hoover family of employees for engineering and supplying such incredible products and service.
