The suction is fantastic, and my carpets are dry within an hour, regardless of how much water and solution I use. I finally decided that, after spending $35 a day, that having it around when I need it was simply worth it. You have paid for this item after seven uses. Considering I basically have to use it once a month, and that it is sturdy it is well worth it. Many have commented on the cheapness of the handle, but I find that it makes the machine both lighter and easier to handle. Our carpets had not been washed in five years. Yes, I know this is gross, and yes, we need to replace it entirely. However, we just bought the house, and have to live with the carpet till we can afford to replace it. With that being said, our carpets changed color over night. Hard, stuck in stains took a night's soak with some cleaning solution or baking soda, and a second cleaning. Our little urine machine of a dog made the house stink of urine, and how spells ten times better. If you have owned an industrial $800+ cleaner, then you will be disappointed with the lack of sensory features, and light modules. However, if you are use to renting these machines from the kiosks, or have had a cheaper $100 Bissel, this is an AMAZING upgrade and I would completely recommend it. The warranty makes me feel pretty secure with my purchase as well.
Easy to Use, Sturdy, Performs Well, Strong Suction, Good Size & Lightweight, Easy to Empty Filter
it's not a steam cleaner you add warm water.
