Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Tin Doesn't Lie! Some time ago, we hired a commercial cleaner from............well, never mind. However, it did give us an insight into how grubby carpets can get - even those that don't get the main traffic in the house. This cleaner is a Which best buy, which is usually an indication that it has something pretty good to offer. It is called a carpet cleaner, and it does exactly that! We have used it on a main bedroom, upstairs and downstairs halls, staircase and the dining room so far. Simple to use and operate, but that dirty water tank is a bit of an embarassment at the end of the process! Carpets certainly show improvement after the "treatment" and also dry pretty quickly. We used the hose attachment on our suite, but I may invest in the additional tools specifically designed for this purpose. A really great buy. 02 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely little cleaner Bought this to clean so really dirty carpets. They are now clean. 01 December 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Does a first class job Purchasing process was straight forward. Option to collect from our local Waitrose store was very useful. The appliance is good value for money, efficient, effective and easy to use. 11 November 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Really good product. Did a very good job of cleaning carpets - so pleased with product. only downfall is its quite heavy when full of water. 08 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent performance The Vax Rapide Carpet Cleaner was easy to use, and very efficient. Carpet dried very quickly. Amazed at the amount of dirt that came out. 01 September 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Typical Vax -,just brilliant ! I bought this carpet cleaner last year and have just done the house from top to bottom for the 2nd time; so now it's paid for itself already. So easy to use and, OMG the colour of the dirty water speaks for itself. The carpet has to last longer too, without all that dirt being trodden in. Oh! And joy of joys I've earned extra brownie points from the missus, as our first visitor through the door thought we'd got a new carpet. Great machine, great job, great result. Well worth the money and effort. 16 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Extremely helpful product to have in household Booklet instructions were concise and clear enabling assemby of product an easy task. All carpets and upholstered items tackled were cleaned quickly and efficiently. They dried faster than anticipated and enabled rooms concerned to be returned to normal use. Found cleaning out of dirty water container time consuming and if some of the 'nooks and crannies' could be eradicated it would help. Fluff particularly appears to get stuck in some of these and cannot be removed despite numerous rinses. 17 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by One of our best buys. We love it, it's easy to use and wow, it certainly cleans the carpets. Ou carpets are only 3 years old and we can't belive the dirt it lifted out of them, they didn't look bad really, but the difference is remarkable, and the pile is visibly lifted too. One of the best buys we have ever made. 06 May 2015
