Vax Rapide Ultra 2 W90-RU-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 Ultra 2 W90-RU-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 Ultra, 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
  • Pre-treatment kit treats stubborn stains before you wash
  • 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

Q & As

Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 376 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great carpet cleaner Very easy to use, the instructions are simple enough. So happy with this product, the dirty water is quite a shocker considering how clean I keep my home (or so I thought!!). I cleaned my lounge in 15-20 mins and the carpets were pretty dry within the hour. Comes with 2 x small bottles of carpet cleaner and 1 x small bottle of pre treatment. 02 May 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by A must have product Was a replacement for an old vax carpet shampooer a far superior product has done a brilliant job very ,little effort required Family wanting to borrow it will be an asset to us all Ordering was easy delivery was fast 26 April 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by JUST THE JOB This cleaner was great value for money and did a great job on all our carpets. Certainly will pay for itself against hiring a carpet cleaner from a DIY store. 22 March 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by very pleased. this was purchased to replace a previous , but cheaper model I'd had for many years. bit of an upgrade with rotating brush and upholstery accessory. have now used this with good effect 2-3 times now ; not leaving carpets too wet. not used upholstery part yet. easy to set up and use, down marked a bit as when filling the top tank it hasn't got a flat bottom and I balance the tank in the sink against the sides of the sink as it would topple over; the old one was flush on the bottom. we have pale carpets and 2 dogs and wouldn't be without this. . 09 March 2016
Rated 3 out of 5 by Cleans well but design faults Had this model for over a year. It cleans the carpets well. But! Stowage of the pre sprayer, upholstery hose and cable is a lesson in how not to design an appliance. The dirty water tank cannot be cleaned easily due to poor design. Can't understand how Vax put it into production like this. 12 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Adult Toy My Son in law thinks this the best thing out, so maybe I will think the same when I get a chance to use it. 10 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by brilliant product Very easy to use & got my cream carpet very clean even stains. Was surprised how dry carpets are after cleaning which is great advantage & easy to use on stairs too. 09 February 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Brilliant carpet cleaner First time I have used a carpet cleaner. Found the instructions clear and quite easy to follow. The carpet was almost dry when I had finished shampooing. The dirty water collected proved what an excellent job it had done! Would not hesitate to recommend. 17 November 2015
