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

Vax have been making a full range of dry vacuum cleaners, carpet washers, steam cleaners, hardfloor cleaners and cleaning solutions for 30 years.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does the job well I am very pleased with this purchase,I have two dogs and after walking them in the woods they get very dirty and subsequently bring plenty of mud into the housewhich has been washed away very effectively with this cleaner.I found the cleaner easy to assemble and and not too difficult to clean after use however it is quite heavy. 04 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing machine Our carpets in lounge/dining room have been down for 22 years and we bought the Vax as it had been recommended by a friend. We were amazed at the results and the carpet looks as good as new. It is fairly heavy to use but follow the instructions carefully and you will see from the state of the dirty water what a good job it does. We had a faulty nozzle on the pretreatment wand but called Customer Services and a replacement arrived the following day. 03 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing This has to be one of the best things (for the home!) I have ever bought !! We have a large German Pointer who seems to make a lot of mess with dirty feet and body and this Vax carpet shampooer has brought all my carpets up clean and bright and almost as good as new. Foolishly all my carpets are cream - not the best idea with a dog - however I am amazed at the efficiency of this cleaner. No mess, not too wet and therefore soon dries. Seeing the colour of the water as it is sucked back up is quite satisfying!!! Worth every penny. 27 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great cleaner Easy to use and leaves carpets spotless Cleaning solution included and plenty of places to get more Large water capacity 18 August 2015
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
