Vax Rapide Ultimate Clean W87-RH-P Carpet Cleaner

Product information

However clean your carpet looks, you can never be too sure what’s lurking within those fibres! The Vax Rapide Ultimate Clean W87-RH-P carpet washer uses deep-cleaning action to give you professional carpet cleaning results at home.

Carpets and upholstery can easily be washed with the Rapide Ultimate Clean, and as it sucks up spills with ease it is always handy to have around. A deep clean is guaranteed: powered jets pump water and cleaning solution into the carpet, while rotating brushes gently agitate and lift out embedded dirt, odours and allergens.

New Dual V technology dries your carpets more quickly, while the inclusion of a wash tool and hose makes cleaning stairs and upholstery effortless. And if the dirt in your carpet is really stubborn, the included pre-treatment kit should help: simply use the wand to apply the treatment, leave for fifteen minutes, and then clean the carpet as normal.

  • Washes carpets and upholstery, and also sucks up spills
  • Powered water jets for deeper cleaning
  • Dual V technology for quicker drying carpets
  • Rotating brushbar agitates carpet pile to lift embedded dirt
  • Wash tool refreshes stairs, upholstery and car interiors

Vax have been making a full range of dry vacuum cleaners, carpet washers, steam cleaners, hardfloor cleaners and cleaning solutions for 30 years. Based in Worcestershire, they still sell an orange 3-in-1 wet-dry canister model that looks similar to the iconic 1980s carpet cleaner that first made their name.

Q & As

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Crikey! 'Doubting' and 'Thomas' are among my middle names. So when the machine arrived, just for fun, I decided to test it out on an off-cut of cream coloured carpet which is currently used as a back door mat which has to withstand twelve paws and human feet, direct from a muddy garden, several times a day. You get the picture. The result was outstanding. A rejuvenated piece of carpet that I compared to the original and there was hardly a difference. I can't wait to 'go live' on the areas I bought the machine to clean! Today the house, tomorrow the street - then the rest of the world! 27 November 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good but very noisy. The machine is heavy and very noisy but it does do a good job of cleaning. 02 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very effective and versatile machine This machine has cleaned our carpets and upholstery brilliantly. It is quickly assembled, simple to use and the instructions are clear. It has done a much better job on our carpets than the professional firm we have used in the past and the machine itself costs less than we used to pay for one professional cleaning. The upholstery tool has rejuvenated our furniture. We are delighted with it. 06 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb! I don't think that I am in the group of people Vax had in mind when they designed this, in that, apart from having two dogs, two children,I tend to the view that having bought pale carpets it is inevitable that they will soon be pretty grubby. However a desperately wet summer/autumn and a lot of resultant mud meant that even I noticed how bad things were and so bought carpet cleaner without any great hope. Well, it is utterly wonderful! Carpets that I thought had given up the ghost are now remarkably improved and recent stains have vanished. Cannot recommend this thing too highly. 17 March 2013
