Carpet and Vax

Vax Dual Power Pro Advanced Carpet Cleaner W85-PL-T

August 23, 2017

Our previous home was an older style terrace house. The style where you stepped from the street directly into the living room. No matter how hard we tried to keep our carpets looking good, they were ruined from dirty shoes etc. In the end, we replaced the carpets with something much harder wearing (although not as soft and cozy as you’d hope for in a living room).

Where we live now has the same cream carpet running throughout the house. With them in good condition when we moved in, we were keen to maintain this. A no shoe in the house rule was put in place and on the whole, it works. However, we three children the main traffic areas such as the hallway, stairs, and living room were starting to show dirt and wear.

Not wanting to let them go to ruin and in an attempt to save me a small fortune in carpets, we have welcomed the Vax Dual Power Pro Advanced Carpet Cleaner with open arms.

Vax Dual Power Pro Advanced Carpet Cleaner // Hello clean carpets!

We have been using the Vax Dual Power Pro Advanced Carpet Cleaner for a couple of months now and I still love getting it out and seeing how it transforms an area in my home. The hallway is our main high traffic area in the home and this was the first place I used the carpet cleaner on. I must confess that the instruction booklet and those found on the side of the cleaning solution confused me so I was pleased to find and watch the YouTube video below.

Working at a slow pace it is best tackled when the children are out of the house at school and nursery so that you can dedicate the time to an area or room. Once all set up using the Vax carpet cleaner is really easy. Watching it suck up the dirty water gives both the satisfaction that you are making a different, yet at the same time a little disgusted that all that dirt was hidden in your carpets – yuck!

I’ve been slowly working my way around the house doing each of the carpets to give them that initial deep clean. I plan to do the main traffic areas again every other month. With the bedrooms etc. getting at least a once a quarter treatment.

    This dual power Vax machine is truly impressive, my carpets are now looking worse for wear and not being able to replace them just yet I feel this vax machine would give them a little longer life.

    I needed one of these in my life before i ripped up my dreadful carpets and replaced it with hard wooden flooring down stairs. I have a no shoe holiday rule in my home and have done for years, it means i can keep my floors relatively clean. I could so with a steam mop now!

    We need our carpets cleaned. I normally hire someone because other cleaners are such a pain to set up and clean out, but this looks really quick and easy. Will definitely look into buying one.

  • Jacinta August 24, 2017 at 10:00 pm

    I SO need one of these. I always feel the carpet is never clean enough and requires a deep clean.

    We could really have done with this after a poorly doggy tum 🙁 I fear our carpet will never be the same again!
