I've had a Hoover SteamVac deep cleaner for years and, yes it is very dependable. But there is no steam. None. There is no heating of anything. What the booklet will not spell out, but you'll find it on You Tube videos, is that there is some kind of exhaust/hot air blown out the side of the machine which is supposed to help dry your carpet. Really? It does a good job - I just never understood how they got away with calling it a SteamVac.
This product performed wonderfully and allowed us to keep the existing white carpets in the house we bought. We were amazed at the stains it was able to get out. We liked it so much we bought one for our vacation rental house to use there. The only recommendation I would make is to use very little (if any) soap since the soap can get trapped in the fibers and then attract stains. It is not a use and put away gadget though-- after using you'll need to get all the fibers and hair out of the brushes.

I owned one already. But lent it out and it came back with a broken part. So I bought another one just for my use. Have not used the new one yet. I will lend out the older one. I bought another brand, didn't work as well. So took it back. This brand ( XXXXXX ) is truly the best for me.
I wish the flat surface floor cleaner tool had been included. I bought the Hoover because my old one, that was the same make, broke after 7 years. I just used my new one this weekend and love it as much as the old one. However I still haven't figured out how to use the steps attachment. Had that problem with the old one too.
this is a purchase that i'm really glad I made. I use it all the time. The only thing I don't love about it is that the tank fills up with dirty water quickly because it's small, then you have to keep stopping to change it. but otherwise, good purchase #lifesdirty
I have always purchased ******* cleaners and thought I would try a different brand this time, I was so glad I did! I this made my carpet look as clean as when I hire a professional. The cleaner is pretty heavy, but I think that actually is helpful for the suction. I have never poured out so much dirty water! It was fairly easy to assemble, took about 15 minutes. I have not used the attachments yet, so I can't comment on those. Overall, very happy with this product...Hoover for life!
I have always owned Bissell before. Never again. I purchased this steam cleaner as my 4 yr old granddaughter accidently spilled her grape juice in Grandma's carpet. Soaked. Scrubbed. Cleaned. Nothing worked. Then I purchased this Hoover and WA LA. Stain gone on the first use! Not as heavy as other reviews made it out to be. 2 tanks is better than 1. Very well made. Im a happy customer!
