Rated 4 out of 5 by andybloke When used properly; works a treat
We have children. This machine has lifted dried in coffee, juice, tomato sauce, milk, vomit and general dirt from carpets. No miracles, but a huge improvement in one pass.
For it to work well you MUST use a vacuum cleaner to pick up ALL the loose fluff first - the pre-motor filter clogs up really quickly (in seconds) if you don't.
While using this item you might notice it's tone changes, it isn't lifting as much liquid as it did initially or drops dirty water when you turn it off - just lift the dirty water tank off and clean the filter. You will have cleaner and drier carpets at the end if you rinse this filter under a tap every few minutes.
The noise is huge. I wear earplugs and suggest you do the same!
The detergent doesn't go a long way - 1L of diluted solution does a couple of square yards (40ml concentrate per L) of dirty carpet. Buy more.
Stains that we covered with rugs for years went away in minutes, so I have to say we're happy with this purchase.
