What you have with the Hoover SteamVac is actually a very potent vacuum that will save you from the trouble of looking for a steam cleaner to rent for your floors.
Equipped with a 12-amp motor with 5 brushes, the Hoover SteamVac effectively lifts off dirt and grime from tough carpets you otherwise won’t want to clean. With an easy to use handle and the quick-access buttons placed therewith, you’ll have an easy time cleaning.
The Clean Surge feature also helps a lot with this, producing some cleaning solution on your choice spot then going to Steamvac mode to dry stains.
The Hoover Steamvac got mostly positive reviews mostly because of its power and affordability. One reviewer noted its effectiveness on a carpet that hasn’t been cleaned for almost 4 years. While it is understandable that the carpet won’t go back to being “good as new”, it most certainly had a noticeable difference after being subject to the cleaning prowess of the SteamVac.
Additionally, the drying process made the carpet dry in a very thorough manner. The manufacturers were also thoughtful enough to make the front of the machine with clear plastic, allowing you to see what you’re vacuuming – we think it was a nice touch.
The cleaner also comes with two separate water tanks which are designed to keep clean from dirty water. Reviewers think this was also a good design decision. What’s even nicer is the inclusion of an auto-mix mechanism which mixes the detergent to be used and the hot water, allowing you to have dry hands the whole time. Some other reviewers also took note of the power of this machine to prolong the life of carpets, as it took away stubborn puppy stains and mucous in a jiffy. It’s like having a professional clean your very own home.
One reviewer specifically noted the inclusion of an 8-foot hose to be used for his long stairwell, which works great for its purpose. A few other good touches include the handle release pedal for easy control, a brush indicator for the Spin Scrub feature, so you know what brush you’re currently working with and a long 27-inch wrap-around cord. Since it’s covered with a one-year warranty, you’ll be sure of its durability, provided that you handle it with the proper use.
However, many of the reviewers also complained of a negative thing which was on assembly. They said that it was quite difficult and leaking spots appeared here in there during operation. On the other hand, one reviewer took note of all these complaints and addressed them by properly following the manual and securely placing things to see to it that there would be no leaks while running the machine.
Other than these things, the Hoover Steamvac with Clean Surge is a brilliant product with the power to clean your carpets thoroughly. Just be sure to buy a lot of detergents though, as it will take up quite a lot to clean up stubborn stains. Don’t worry though, as these are necessary investments to make sure that your mother-in-law won’t make that face once they visit your carpeted home again.
