Rated 5 out of 5Â 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 out of 5Â 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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rick Great Machine for the Cost
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!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by RandySue Great reviews but cheap plastic parts
I have used this cleaner 3 times and although it does a good job, we have had the plastic tabs break off where the hose assembly attaches, and recently the handle release broke. Â Both areas are on the main plastic assembly. Very poor design. Since it is 4 months out of warranty, Â I will have to pay to get it fixed. Â I will bungee cord it together for now to keep it from falling over. Hoover states they have fixed the design on the new ones, but no recall. Do not buy this model.Â

Rated 5 out of 5Â by MomOfKidsandDogs Pays for itself in one use
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
