I love this machine. It looks like a big monster, but it's very easy to use and doesn't take alot of muscle to move it around. It's unbelievable how well it cleans. You'll be amazed at what's hiding in your carpet. Definately worth the investment!Get more detail about Hoover SteamVac Carpet Cleaner with Clean Surge, F5914-900.

Worked pretty well the first time I have used it. I was a little disappointed that it didn't seem to get spots up the first swipe, but seemed to get them up after passing over them a few times. Mine didn't leak and the rugs dried very fast which was a pleasant surprise. So far happy with my purchase.Get more detail about Hoover SteamVac Carpet Cleaner with Clean Surge, F5914-900.
This is a great product! Follow the assembly directions closely, including the pull the handle step (see other reviews for more details), use the Hoover product so it doesn't suds too much, and ENJOY CLEAN CARPETS! I have 2 indoor/outdoor dogs and 5 indoor cats and 1 indoor/outdoor husband and only 2 of all those are shorthair! AND we live in a mountain region (lots of dirt!). After 2 years of living on our BEIGE carpet, I decided to give this product a try! WOW! My carpets came out clean! Any barf stains lifted, even old ones that I kind of ignored. The nap revitalized. The hand tools worked GREAT on the staircase. And BOY DID DIRT COME OUT OF THAT CARPET! I even cleaned our livingroom throw rug (outdoors on the driveway). If you make several dry passes with the product, your carpets are left barely damp and they only take an hour or two (even in winter)to dry. The throw rug -- I expected to leave the driveway soaking wet underneath -- but NO! the carpet came clean and didn't soak way through like I thought it might. The DAY AFTER I cleaned the whole house, one of the cats puked and my husband got grease on the carpet at precisely the same time. This machine cleaned them both right up! I now have friends and family "hiring" me to clean their carpets when the weather warms up. Easy to use, does a great job, why didn't I get this product earlier? This is a product that you will really appreciate.Get more detail about Hoover SteamVac Carpet Cleaner with Clean Surge, F5914-900.

Live in a condo with two dogs that shed with a large area rug on the 1st floor and complete carpeting on steps and 2nd floor.
Hiring a professional steam cleaner every few months is not feasible either from a time or investment perspective.
After testing out a friend's Hoover Steamvac (smaller version not made anymore), I concluded that purchasing one would make sense.
This unit has worked very well. I have used it several times and am very pleased with the results.
It picks up a lot of dirt and dog hair. One thing to note that should not be considered a fault is that if enough dog hair builds up, it will kick out a little wet furrball. Better to grab that and throw it out than roll the dice with a plumber and wash it down your sink.
I do wish it were a little easier to clean out the main head of the unit or that Hoover would provide the tool automatically when sold, but that would be my only complaint.
It does a great job on stairs too.
A little frightening to see how dark that water is after the first use!Get more detail about Hoover SteamVac Carpet Cleaner with Clean Surge, F5914-900.
I read several of your reviews before ordering the Hoover steam cleaner. It is a keeper. I cleaned my carpets before my new furniture arrived. Wow, the carpets look great. My kids were so surprised how well the new carpet cleaner worked on my stained and dirty carpets (clean surge worked great on the high traffic areas). Thank you to everyone for helping me pick out the best steam cleaner. Bev from MontanaGet more detail about Hoover SteamVac Carpet Cleaner with Clean Surge, F5914-900.
