Rated 5 out of 5 by Missy1403 Carpets looked professionally cleaned
My Hoover® Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Washer did a beautiful job cleaning our white carpets that were in bad need of a cleaning. I was postponing having my rugs steam professionally steam cleaned because I was researching the brands and different machines. I wanted to put the machine to a real test as well. I am a senior and I did not find it difficult to do my entire house. When I was finished, our wall to wall carpets looked every bit as good as if I had a professional team to do them. We have Berber carpets and not all machines clean Berber well. The next time I use my carpet washer (which will be the 2nd time it is used), our machine will have paid for itself.

Our old machine (different Manufacturer) bit the dust after many years. We bought this based on the brand, ease of use and reviews. Wow ! works great !!.Separate dirty water tank. Separate clean water tank and separate solution tank. FYI: The manual says to fill the solution tank with solution, but the solution bottle recommends 1/2 solution / 1/2 warm water. Use the 50/50 mix. Make sure both tanks are filled to the lines. We had areas of carpet by the kitchen that I thought would never come clean. The machine took it all out !!!. The whole machine can be emptied and cleaned in 5 minutes. I actually had fun using it! One more thing: The 2 screws for the handle and the complete manual are in the black storage bag.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Lynnk20 Didn't do the job
I bought this to clean an 8 x 10 area rug and the upholstery of my couch. I have a good that leaves saliva marks on my light colored couch and needed something to get it out.
Cleaning the large rug was a breeze. I could see all the dirty water it was sucking up. However, I had 2 small stains on the carpet that still remained even after going over it several times. I also noticed that after drying, my carpet didn't smell any fresher than before. It still smells of my dog, which is disappointing.
As for the couch upholstery...what a dreaming mess! The upholstery hose attachment sprayed water and solution everywhere! It soaked the upholstery and the suction barely worked, so it left my fabric completely saturated. The section of couch that I did do, after much scrubbing, still has all the stain marks it had before. Everything else was clean. You can see a distinct color difference where I did it, but ALL of the stains are still there! I was very disappointed in this product and will probably have to end up hiring someone to clean my upholstery for me. What a waste of money!
If I could have chosen "no stars" as an option I would have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JCPMK The product is lightweight
I love the way the dirt tank is set up on this steam cleaner and even thought it is a smaller model then my old one I like that this one is a lighter weight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 2963102919 Doesn't work
Researched about the carpet cleaner in Amazon but bought this from best buy. However, this review is for the product only, not the store.
I am wondering if hoover can return my money spent. Check out the video I have uploaded.
The cleaner worked okay for the first time. When I used it for the second time, there was no cleaning action. The carpet was just made wet. This equipment does not dry the carpet, it is not even close. The smell of cleaner liquid stays on and never goes away for a couple of days so I wonder what the rinse cycle does ? With windows open in a summer afternoon and with the ceiling fan on, it took 3-4 hours for carpet to dry.
So during the second use, I think I figured out why the machine doesn't work anymore - I am not an expert but maybe Hoover can diagnose better. The rotor brushes do not spin when the machine is upright or in use. It barely rotates when I tip the machine on its wheels. See video.
The collection tank does not collect any dirty water after the first use.
The entire cleaning action seems to be dependent on the "powerful" rotation of the brushes which is the critical path. Since the critical path does not function, the machine is junk. Without rotation of brushes, this machine is merely a water spray on carpets and it doesn't dry.
Wonder how this is the best selling one on Amazon. Maybe I just got a defective product.

I am a smoker, carpeting takes a beating. Used this cleaner once since purchase and it was amazing. Other Commercial cleaner I had been renting, didn't even come close to what this machine did. Don't hesitate, buy one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jonah Why is there a lingering smell?
I bought this about a week ago and tried it for the first time. I vacuumed the floor first then used the carpet cleaner. While I was going over, it seemed to work. I followed the instructions of Wash then Rinse. I thought it was working because I could smell the solution on my carpet.
The problem was that I went multiple times over for the dry strokes and it took 1.5 days to completely dry. I assumed it was because I had such thick carpets.
However, once it completely dried there was this smell that was all over the carpet. I have no idea what it is, but I used a lot of air fresheners just to keep the smell from coming back.
