First - A word on the impressive speed in shipping. I needed the product as quickly as possible because my previous machine died while I was cleaning up a disgusting mess caused by two sick dogs vomiting and having diarrhea in my living room - all over my living room. Despite the urgency, I still chose the free super saving shipping. I ordered around 8:30 pm on Thursday and found the box delivered on my front porch before 8:30 am on Saturday.
Second - Putting the the steam vac together. I am not handy with my hands, yet even I was able to put this machine together in less than 10 minutes. You need to slide the handle into place and put in two screws to secure it. Then you can either mount the tool caddy onto the machine (it slides into place) or slide it onto a hanger and store it in a closet.
Third - Using it. You start by filling up the clean water and soap containers. After that you choose the setting you want to use. (power scrub, gentle scrub, spill pick up). Next you choose between wash - auto rinse or just rinse. Then you turn on the machine and go. I used auto rinse. The soapy water came out when I pushed forward and the rinse water came out when I pulled back. Then I released the trigger and just sucked water for a couple of swipes before moving onto the next spot. The machine moved easily and the rotating brushes got out all the disgusting material deposited in my carpet. The carpet was clean, soft, and dry in less than two hours.Read more ›
I will admit that the first cleaner I got was defective. It just would not turn on. After talking to Hoover support, I returned the cleaner to Amazon. I was really happy I had ordered from Amazon, because they sent UPS to the house to pick up the defective cleaner and had a new one to me within a few days. Great service.
We decided to purchase a carpet cleaner becasue the Rug Doctor rental just was not cuttting it. We have 2 children under 4 and a dog, so the need for a readily-available cleaner was paramount. I spent a couple of months reviewing and researching, looking to make the best purchase for my hard earned $$. At the end, narrowed it down to two Hoover cleaners, this SteamVac Dual V and the Hoover F5914-900 SteamVac with Clean Surge. The reviews for the F5914 were slightly better both on Amazon and on other sites, but I opted for the Dual V because I felt the issues were more user-error related than the Dual V being of worst quality than the F5914. Also, the price difference had shunk to $30. So far, I feel that I've made the right decision.
As always, the product arrived faster than expected (Amazon is great for that)! The box came in and I spent about 20 minutes really going over the instruction to make sure I did not fall into the same hole so many had before. Putting it together took me about 20 minutes, but i was seriously taking my time, so I think 10 - 15 minutes is the norm. I immediately went to work on the carpet in the family room, as that is the high traffic area in our house.
Many of the complaints I'd read circled around the brushes becoming full of pet hair, which in turn caused their failure. To top it off, I'd read that people have had problems getting Hoover to fix the brushes under warranty. First, I brought out my sturdy Hoover U5140-900 Tempo Widepath Bagged Upright Vacuum and vaccumed the carpet WELL.Read more ›
