Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BusyMommy cleans up stains from baby and toddlers well
I have 3 small children, the youngest who is 18 months, and she constantly throws food on the carpeted floor in our apartment. (seriously, WHO puts carpet in a dining room?!) The attached pictures are stains of spaghetti sauce, juice, blueberries, vegetables, curry, peanut butter, you name it- from weeks before I purchased the cleaner a few days ago. I'm pleasantly surprised at how well it got out pasta sauce and other mystery dark spots. I did not want to continue renting steam vacs and I think this is well worth the money. To me, it's moderately priced- not too high and not at the lowest end. I hope this has a long life, because I will be using this frequently! So, if you have a baby or small children who consistenly spill things, this is a fine steam cleaner.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BBAB EXTREMELY IMPRESSED!
My wife and I moved into a brand new townhouse 2 years ago. The original carpet (very cheap) is still in the house and is not at all resistant to stains. The carpet in the family room has become very soiled over the past 2 years. A few months ago we were paid a visit by a door-to-door salesman trying to sell us a very well known $1500 vacuum/cleaner (K**by). We were given a demonstration and, frankly, not overly impressed with the cleaning ability of the $1500 machine (although its sucking power was quite impressive). At that point I thought if a $1500 cleaner doesn't get rid of the stains, then we would most likely have to replace the carpet with a higher quality, stain resistant carpet.
Well, I'm glad we didn't spend $1500 on that machine, and I'm glad we didn't replace the 2 year old carpet. I purchased the Hoover Steam Vac F5915-100 yesterday and used it last night. It was very easy to assemble and EXTREMELY EASY to use. I am VERY PLEASED with the results. The carpet went from looking like it needed to be replaced to looking like new!
The drying time was very impressive. I finished the job at 9pm and by 11pm the carpet was almost completely dry. This morning, there was absolutely no dampness whatsoever remaining.
I highly recommend this very affordable and very effective product. Even if you only use it once, it pays for itself.
Please see the before and after photos.

Had to replace an old (10+) Hover SteamVac. According to my wife, this one works better - works fantastically. Removed stains we thought we might never get out and made the carpets look new. This one not just cleans better but is lighter and easier to use. And comparatively, you can't go wrong with the value for the price. If you are in the market, buy it!

I have to get my carpets cleaned at least twice a year with two kids and 2 dogs. Of course the carpet would get stained in between cleanings so I would try and spot clean areas but that wouldn't really work. I read the reivews of this product compared to the $200 one and thought this would be a better buy. So far I am very impressed! It did the job I needed it to do. The carpets look clean and not matted anymore and the house smells fresher too. Unlike rentals, the water tank was light and easy to fill up. It is great for spills or spot clean ups. It was so easy to use and paid for itself in one use. I am very impressed

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kpiaz09 EXCELLENT!
I bought this carpet cleaner after reading the high reviews it received. I found the assembly to be simple and the directions to be very clear. After using the carpet cleaner, I was so impressed with the results. It was extremely easy to use, fill and empty. I love the fact that it has two separate compartments for clean and dirty water. My carpet looks like it did the day we moved in and I thought that was going to be a hard goal to accomplish given that I have a toddler, a dog, my husband and myself! I love this machine and am so very happy with my purchase. I would highly recommend this carpet cleaner to anyone!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bobmunch64 A very good carpet cleaner and cheaper than a rental
I used to have a previous Hoover rug shampooer and this one is even better! Well made, durable, and really does the job. Plenty of suction to pull out fluids and the brushes do very well at loosening and scrubbing stuff within the top 1/4 inch of the surface.
From experience, I would recommend using Simple Green rather than Hoover's rather anemic shampoo. Just follow the directions on the SG bottle. SG + this machine does a very good job of getting the crud out, AND leaving a soft feel to the carpet. Don't use shampoos with that Teflon stuff, it just leaves a gummy residue, which SG doesn't. FWIW.

After doing a lot of research I purchased this machine 2 weeks ago and have since cleaned all of he carpet in my house. Having 3 dogs and 3 cats PLUS fostering for a local dog rescue group our carpets getting pretty dirty. This machine cleans amazingly well! I was totally surprised to see how dirty my carpets actually were..YUCK! The product is very easy to put together and to use. I would HIGHLY recommend this product!!

This machine does a good job cleaning rugs for the price paid.
It is of cheap construction and poorly assembled, it appears the manufacturer does not have a quality control staff or they are not doing their job .
The machine arrived with the lever extensions installed incorrectly, making final assembly of the handle impossible and the fluid tube for the upholstery accessory tool arrived damaged in packaging from the factory, although they do have a no hassle guarantee, the problems mentioned were clearly visible and should have been corrected before final packing and shipment.
The sevice life of this machine is questionable??
