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 4.5 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by More than worth the money I have two dogs and although I've tried to keep the sitting room carpet clean, this carpet washer has, sadly, demonstrated how unsuccessful I've been.. It's done a brilliant job - albeit after a few necessary repeat treatments - in restoring the carpet to close to its original colour. A professional carpet-cleaner told me, last time I used one, that I had no-chance of getting close to the original colour again (yes, it was that bad). Quibbles: the dirty water tank isn't easy to clean out, the line-drawings in the instructions are not very helpful and if you haven't used a machine like this before, there are a few basics omitted from the instructions that would have been useful to know, and that's why I haven't given an overall 5-star rating. But the machine is simple to use, not as noisy as I'd expected from other reviews and I would have no hesitation in recommending it as a worthwhile investment. 06 October 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by I like! I did not know our carpets were THAT dirty! The machine works great! But the instructions could be slightly better - some more detailed info included in the package, instead of sending you to a website, would be nice... The cleaner is a little loud - but I did expect that and I actually thought it would be louder than it is... Overall - I am very happy with the purchase and I would definitely recommend it to my friend - I actually have already done so :-) 16 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it Now I pride myself on keeping a clean house. But I was amazed at how dirty the water was the first time I emptied my machine. This is a great cleaner. So easy to use. If you are thinking about getting one. Think no more. BUY! 28 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bit of a Brute Did exactly what it said on the tin,Well pleased.Glad I bought it. 22 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good so far! I have only used the machine once but found it to be easy to use. It did brighten up our fairly new 'cream' living and dining room carpets and the odd stains that were there have gone. If it continues in this fashion I would of probably given it an Excellent mark but reserve judgement in case it doesn't come up to scratch on other carpets. 02 June 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Effective product and easy to use This surprised me by being pretty straightforward to use and finished the job quickly. It has made a huge difference to the carpets which are cream (ish). The carpets take a battering cos we have three young boys and a dog, but this cleaner has given them a new lease of life. Because the product is easy and quick to use I will use it regularly. 28 April 2015
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
