First time carpet shampoo-er purchase. (This was recommended by a friend who has one) I use it mainly as in-between professional carpet cleaning. I've done whole rooms and have been pleased with the results. Carpet is regularly cleaned and I was surprised set how dirty the water was! Took a bit of practice to get the hang of proper use; you can't run it back & forth like a vacuum or you'll loose suction/power. (You can hear this when it happens and have to turn it off & allow cleaner to re-set. You've got to go s-l-o-w-l-y over the carpet. Once you get that down, half the battle is won. Frequent water changes also slow you down a bit. But then cleaning carpets isn't something that should be hurried. I always plan for a day when I have nothing else going so I can get started early. It does take time to air dry, too. I speed things up with portable fans that I move from room to room to facilitate that. Overall, I'm happy with it. The only thing better would be to have your professional carpet guy living with you... : )
I have been wanting a carpet cleaner for years and with a new cat and dog, this has gotten a lot of use. Does the trick. As far as making the carpet look new, I can't say that. I get my carpet professionally cleaned once a year and see a bigger difference overall. But, for keeping accidents from sinking in, I would recommend.
I was happy with the pet 2x. i have 4 animals and this works wonderfully on the throw and area rugs around the house as well as the carpet. great suction, and easy to handle..I am pleased with the purchase, no regrets

I have 2 dogs and a house full of construction workers and I live in GA (red dirt). I cranked this baby up and I do not have any stains on my carpet. This machine rocks and it really gets it up. I would recommed it to anyone, well worth the money.
it works ok but if you have a big job rent a rug cleaner it will do the job in half the time
