Can anyone recommend a good carpet washer that really cleans well? With 3 messy DS's my vax isn't really cutting it for a deep clean, it doesn't have great suction, filters repeatedly needing adjusting etc. obviously not stupidly expensive but I'm happy to spend a bit on ones a I do use it regularly.
I have a Bissell Cleanview Proheat, cost £200. It replaced a previous Bissell model that we just wore out . Since the old one died a few months ago, this one had its work cut out for it, and it did a great job. It was like the advert, where the carpet colour goes from dark grey to cream in one pass ( again). Build quality is sturdier than before, all the little niggles in the previous model seem to have been designed out of this one.
i had a vax duel 124-a. it was fab. it had rotating brushes on the front that were brilliant at cleaning food and dog stains of my cream carpet (3 kids under 5, a dog and a husband who is obvious to mud). it was about £250 on amazon.
I had it for about 18 months and then the rotating brush motor burnt out. I called Vax. They sent a courier to collect it the next day and replaced it, no quibbles, with the latest model, which is even fab-er.
Really couldn't be happier. The first machine was really good - equivalent to a rug doctor for effectiveness, and the new one is even better.
Replaced our Bissell proheat last year after many years amazing service (2 small boys, 1 dirty tradesman hubby and beige carpets). Newer Bissell (think it's a deep clean but I'm not at home) is better still, would definitely recommend them.
