It's mine... all mine and I can use it anytime now.
I saw a review online that ranked this the best of carpet cleaners comparing several models. The review was from last year I think, but it was still this model ranked #1 of the 10 they reviewed.
The unit works very well. I have not cleaned my carpets is quiet a long time and was quiet dirty. This cleaner did a fantastic job.
The water side and the water return side are a bit small, but if it were any bigger you would have difficulty pushing / carrying it (water is very heavy). As such, you’ll spend a number of trips back and forth either refilling or emptying the dirty water. On a large project or entire house, you’ll get tired of emptying or refilling what will seem constantly… but such is the nature of cleaning carpets. You’ll get this no matter what.
Just a tip, when either the rinse (fresh) water runs out, empty the dirty water - , if the dirty water fills up, fill the fresh water (and detergent if necessary). If you don’t, it will stop you again in just a few minutes and you’ll have to stop and service it again. It stops enough as it is, don’t go begging for more. And the #1 tip/reviewer about using plain water first, read it. It works!
Overall, it does a great job of cleaning carpets. The wash & pull cycle (to extract dirty detergent/water) and rinse cycle (with clean water), does a pretty good job of vacuuming up the water. The carpet is damp, but not wet.
During the winter, the price drops I guess they figure you are not likely to be doing this in the cold winter months, However if you happen to be in one of the many cold areas of the country, humidity is very low during the winter months, and the damp carpet dries surprisingly quickly. To a point anyway, place a fan on it anyway of course, but it should dry just fine… mine did.
The prices are a bit lower just about every day I check here. Even if you are going to wait until spring to clean your carpets, now is a good time to get one, and this is a pretty good unit. And the price is amazing here on amazon, it’s $80 at the time I’m writing this for the basic unit. And you will own it.
I haven’t cleaned my carpets in years, and the dirty water was coming out of the carpet was like muddy water… yuk. Well that won’t happen again because I have a great carpet cleaner right in the hallway closet, and it’s mine… all mine and I can use it any time I want.
