Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vax Powermax I have bought this for my daughter as she has light carpets throughout her home and of course they need a regular deep clean. She is thrilled with the Vax Powermax.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what it says not really light weight Cleans well, you have to be careful not to leave it running water when you stop. Also, a bit heavy to be called light weight, but works well and leaves the carpet clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Does what it says........ Cleans carpets well! Water tank a little on the small side. Very easy & straight forward to use! Light weight. Can be noisy so check the filter! Overall I am very pleased Recommend - Good Value for Money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Took it back This wet the carpet but didnt suck up much of the moisture. We do have quite thick carpets and this was not fit for purpose, you get what you pay for I suppose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from did the job We wanted an inexpensive carpet cleaner not steam and this filled the bill .easy to assemble and use did really good job very quickly, would definitely recommend

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight carpet cleaner Bought to clean carpets in an upstairs flat. Easy to assemble and use. Tanks are small so need filled and emptied often but if they were bigger the machine would be heavier. Small filter under the dirty water tank gets clogged quickly and the machine's whine becomes a scream. Anquick wash under the tap fixes that. Because it is light the water extraction is not great but some light hand pressure on the bottom tank improves that and the carpets were dry overnight. The carpets were birty and it took two washes but it does a great job. Do not compare to hire machines but it does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean Carpets at Last! I have been wanting a carpet cleaner for ages and finally got round to buying this one. I used it as soon as I got it home, on the hall carpet, which was desperately in need of a face lift. Really pleased with the results - looks like a new carpet and feels great. The carpet was very reasonably dry after cleaning and took a very short time to dry out completely. It was very easy to use and clean, after use. I would definitely recommend this machine and look forward to getting many more years of use from it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value for money Bought the Vax VRS5W carpet cleaner as it was small, light, and compact. Easy to assemble and use. Have used it to clean light coloured carpets and rugs. Pleased with the results as they are a lot cleaner. Really heavy stains need to be cleaned a second time. The small filter inside the machine needs to be cleaned regularly as it gets clogged with fluff and makes a high pitch whistling noise. Overall, I am pleased with the machine and think that buying it was a lot better value for money than hiring a machine for a day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really good value for money This carpet cleaner is really good value for money, I was worried as I've used my mum's expensive cleaner before which was great and torn between spending more money on a higher priced cleaner, but to be honest it has brought my cream carpets up a treat. It is a little noisy but I can cope with that as this cleaner was such good value.
Date published: 2015-02-21
Rated 2 out of 5 by from you get what you pay for For the price it is very light and does the job if its a small area. It looks what it is cheap the carpets are still quite wet. Maybe should have paid more for a better machine
Date published: 2015-01-27
Rated 3 out of 5 by from to many fiddly bits but not bad for the money found that the small filter required removing and washing every few minutes. badly positioned intake seal made horrible howling noise until repositioned. despited previously vacuuming the intake clogged up with cat hairs, the machine is obviously more efficient than my other VAX. I found the machine to be quite efficient when everything was put carefully in the right place.
Date published: 2015-01-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well for a small area great in small areas, water tank needs a lot of top up though so probably wouldn't be so effective (and more time consuming) with a larger expanse of carpet to be cleaned. Helped make old rugs much cleaner, good value for money for this purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product if you take time it will bring your carpets up like new.
Date published: 2014-12-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Buy. Was pleased with delivery time and purchase. Only fault was that after purchase found Asda did not sell the Vax cleaning fluid to use with this, and the bottle given with the purchase is quite small. Had to go online to find local retailer ....... Vax easy to assemble and instructions good. Would definitely recommend! Good machine and well priced.
Date published: 2014-09-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for small areas Quite a small water reservoir, so not really suitable for large areas of carpet, however, I only wanted it to do a rug and it was fine. Not a terribly robust product, so again, not suitable for large carpets. but for the occasional rug it was good. Excellent value for money, certainly works out cheaper than renting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from happy All great do the job only downside small water tank which had to refill around 15 times for cleaning one bedroom
Date published: 2014-08-30
Rated 1 out of 5 by from made to look good bad design first the cleaning water holder has a round end so its hard to stand upright when filling. second the filter that catches the dirt is to small and needs taking out and cleaning every five mins or it doesn't suck the water up. third the dirty water container is so full of compartments and corners its very difficult to clean. forth the water on off switch stuck and didn't stop emptying water when I released the trigger I had to take the machine apart to unstick the said valve. I have only used it three times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little machine This machine is very easy to use and does a great job on carpets. My kitchen carpet was a disgrace and I couldn't get it clean by hand but the Vax brought it up like new.
Date published: 2014-06-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not unhappy The Adobe steam mop is not very powerful nor sturdy. I bought it recently and only got to use our once; I wish it was sturdier, I am not sure how long it will last. However, handled with care, it blows enough steam to get the job done. On the good side, the floor is dry in only couple of minutes. And it does come quite cheap, so over all I am not unhappy with my purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Vax a lot for a Mobile Hot Water Heater! Poorly Made Bone Cruncher of a Plastic Water heater, that regurgitates hand soap to your Carpet. In certain cases making ones carpet worse. RE: Vax Customer Service "TOTAL MINCE"......Nil/Void of Communication Skills....Need I go on.......Rythmes with Knight.!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good results for the price paid I was astonished at the capability of this machine. It cleans really well, and not as noisy as I expected. I had some really tough stains on my carpet which lifted well. Only wished I had purchased this sooner. Saves so much money. No more industrial cleaners...this one is just as good if not better.
Date published: 2014-04-08
Rated 1 out of 5 by from disappointed Bought this product not long ago thinking it would do what it's supposed to do. Tried it out 3 times on 2 different carpets, and seen no difference at all. would not recommend if you are o.c.d about cleanliness.
Date published: 2014-04-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value for Money This Vax Carpet Washer brings up the carpets and rugs a treat, bringing out stubborn stains. Excellent value for money.
Date published: 2013-09-05
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but could be a lot better This is a decent cleaner, however the fluid doesn't come out very evenly and it is very difficult to use on stair carpets; it also doesn't suck up any clumps of cat fur, so you need to do this by hand or with another vacuum cleaner.
Date published: 2013-09-04
Rated 1 out of 5 by from GREAT AT FIRST!!!! . . .beware!!!! I loved this product at first, carpet looked beautiful, granted it was very wet! I could forgive the cleaner for that. However, when it had fully dried out, the stains seemed to come back twice as bad as they were! I then cleaned the carpet another two times over the space of a week, ensuring I left plenty of time for it to dry. the same problem re-occurred! my dispensing tank for the water then gave up on me and water flooded out of the cleaner all over my carpet. I took the item back to asda and swapped it for the same item, believing there may have just been a fault with the cleaner. sadly it was not to be! the same problem happened again with the replacement. so im now left with badly stained carpets with water damage and have a slight smell of damp to them. on the plus side asda did refund my money.

what accessories come with this cleaner

Asked by: millo123

Does this have a hand-use attachment for uses like washing carpets inside your car etc ?

Asked by: MrPopadopalis
NO hand attachment.- it is an upright cleaner ( like an upright hoover) so is best suited for rooms rather than cars. I am not a driver so am unaware if a cars' carpets can be removed. If they can and you can lay them flat this would clean them well IMHO.
