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

Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does an excelent job I purchased this Vax cleaner after reading good reviews on this product and I was not disappointed, With 3 children and 3 dogs our living room carpet was in a desperate mess and the Vax cleaner done a brilliant job in cleaning the carpet. Two points I would have to stress, 1. if you think you will fill it up with solution and give your carpet a single pass with the machine and your carpet will be like new, it wont, it takes time and work, to clean my carpet which is 48m2 it took 2.5 hours and I cleaned it in 4 different directions then it was like new, 2. to clean out the dirty water tank take it outside and flush out with a garden hose. 21 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really excellent Carpet Cleaner Having used the Vax Rapide Ultra 2 Carpet cleaner I can honestly say that it brought the " carpets" back to life and reminded us of the " original" colour that was once there. Easy to use with easy instructions and does an amazing clean. 21 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Too complicated for me to use After few weeks I brought this cleaner, I still haven't use it yet, The manual is too complicated for me. but is looks worth the money. 14 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic carpet cleaner I have never used a carpet cleaner before. It is so easy to use. I would recommend this product, the carpets came up like new. 08 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Rejuvenated my carpets! As per other reviewers I searched around for the best product/price etc and chose this one which was a Which best buy. I had thought my carpets were pretty clean after vacuuming but this really cleaned them up, the dirty water container showed just how dirty they were despite appearing clean. Machine is easy to use, just make sure as the instruction booklet says that you hold down the trigger to dispense the shampoo on the forward push of the machine and release it as you pull the machine back slowly so that it sucks up the liquid because if you pull the machine back too fast it doesn't suck up the liquid as well as if you do slowly when you can really feel the suction. Carpets dried well overnight and smell fresh and are also softer again. Great machine highly recommended. 07 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent This machine gives very good results and feels really well made,the wife is really pleased with it! 10 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very impressed Took quite a long time to choose and select a carpet cleaner and it was really the very helpful staff whose advice led to the purchase of this particular model. It is well worth the extra as it not only cleans the carpet but also leaves it nearly dry which is a real bonus. I was very sceptical about carpet cleaners but decided to go for it rather than have to buy new carpet! That's the danger of buying a light coloured hall / stairs / lounge carpet but this Vax really does the job and the carpets look like new! A real plus is the hose and tool for the stairs - this is a must! You do though need somewhere to store the cleaner - it's quite big! 03 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Vax Rapide Ultra I read all the reviews before selecting the product which i had found helpful. The machine is big and quite heavy, but if you take all the hoses off when you are not using them that helps a little. The machine is powerful and very effective. it takes time to clean carpets and it is important that you do not rush things. You really need to go over the surface 3 or 4 times to get all the dirt out and more to get as much water out as possible. highly recommend this product and if used regularly before really heavy soiling i think you could prolong the life of your carpets, well thats my plan anyway. 25 March 2014
