I bought this specifically for the spinning brush attachment for my stairs, as opposed to other products which the hose attachment does not have spinning brushes. (This has 2 hose attachments). My stairs look great. My whole carpet looks great. I had regular wear, plus stains which came clean easily. This performed much better than the last two times I hired a professional. It's paid for itself already! Also, it sucks most of the water back out and the floors dry very quickly.
Pros: Cleans Edges/Corners Well, Easy to Use, Performs Well, Strong Suction, Great Value, Easy to Empty Filter, Lots of Features, Nice Design
I used my Hoover Steam Scrub for the first time this past weekend and it did an admirable job in getting the dirt out of my area rugs. I do not use shampoo, rather just hot water with a cup of hydrogen peroxide. I have found in the past that it is very difficult to get all of the shampoo back out of the carpet, so that it then becomes a dirt magnet. My only issue with this machine is that whenever I have to stop to empty the dirty water tank, I have to make several attempts to get it reattached with the proper seal so that the machine will have its ability for suction. Does a great job at pulling the water back out of the rugs so that dry time is minimal.
I used this to clean a wall-to-wall carpet and it did a great job. I just used hot water without the soap as I didn't want any soap residue, and it worked fine although all I had was dirt (no stains). It cleaned well along the edges too. I am not crazy about it being all plastic, but I guess that's the trade-off in price.
Pros: Cleans Edges/Corners Well, Performs Well, Great Value
Cons: Build Quality

Review 5 for SteamVac SpinScrub Carpet Cleaner
Age Range:35 to 44
This product has good qualities. Came with broken pieces that wasn't replace. Otherwise, good product.
This cleaner was pretty easy to put together, but was missing a screw. After contacting mfr., I was sent wrong one, so I used one i had that fit enough to work. It removed alot of dirt, however it cleaned in streaks (maybe since rug was flat loop pile), so i just used the clean surge. Clean surge cleaned more thoroughly but used up solution very quickly. Also, could use a longer cord. Overall it did the job as needed.
Pros: Easy to Use, Strong Suction, Easy to Empty Filter
You have no business having carpet in our house unless you own one of these. Essentially one of these units costs about the same as hiring a company to come clean your house once. But the results are so much better with this machine, and you can use it as often as you want at no extra charge. We purchased it when we started potty training my toddler. It has paid for itself many times over. Mine didn't come with the spin brush hand tool that I think would have been handy for doing the stairs. That's why I give it 4 stars instead of 5.
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Great Value
Cons: Noisy, if you forget to empty after use it will stink!!
I have had this machine for about a month. I used it and found it to be great for me and easy to handle and use. I let my daughter use it on a carpet she was fixing to replace. She does not need to replace it now. She was amazed.
Pros: Cleans Edges/Corners Well, Easy to Use, Performs Well, Strong Suction, Good Size & Lightweight, Nice Design
Never had used a carpet scrubber. It was easy to use and by following the simple instructions, did an amazing job. I'm on a boat and for two years, mechanics had tracked outside dirt and grease on new carpet. In one day, all soil disappeared.
Pros: Cleans Edges/Corners Well, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Performs Well, Looks Great, Quiet, Strong Suction, Great Value, Good Size & Lightweight, Easy to Empty Filter, Lots of Features, Nice Design
The machine was just what we needed: it is easy to set up, use and clean up. It is lighter and narrower than other models but that allows it to clean in many tight spaces without having to resort to using the hose utensil. Yet if the spot is too tight the hose utinsil works well too. The upholstery utensil also works well.
It is a bit noisier than others . You might want to get a set of ear protectors but that is a small concession.

I finally opened the box, put this together, and used it this week! The only "problem" I had, was it too easy!! My old one was a pain to use, and I expected this one to be harder to use than it was. As long as it holds out, I will be VERY satisfied with this product. One piece of advice --you don't need soap--using just the hot water is enough to get out the every day dirt. You can use spot cleaners for stains, but just plain water on the rest. Soap is always hard to get out of a rug, and if it's not completely removed, the soap will actually attract dirt...
Pros: Easy to Use, Performs Well, Strong Suction, Good Size & Lightweight
Cons: cord--it's easy to run over it when backing up

Review 14 for SteamVac SpinScrub Carpet Cleaner
Better carpet cleaner than what I've found to rent
This is a nice carpet cleaner. Provides a deep clean, and doesn't continuosly expel carpet cleaning solution while it's operated (solution activated by hand trigger). Vacuum power is great in helping dry the carpet too after the cleaning solution has been applied.
Pros: Cleans Edges/Corners Well, Easy to Use, Performs Well, Strong Suction, Great Value, Good Size & Lightweight, Easy to Empty Filter, Nice Design
After 15 years we finally had to replace our old Hoover carpet cleaner with a new model. The new cleaner does a very good job cleaning both plush and berber carpet and the attachment works very well on stairs. The vacuum is powerful and as a result the carpets dry much quicker than what we experienced using our older cleaner -- clean in the morning and put furniture back around dinner time. It is easy to fill, empty and use on carpets, but it takes a little while to master connecting the attachment hose. Overall, a great machine for keeping your carpets clean and looking new.
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Performs Well, Strong Suction, Great Value, Good Size & Lightweight, Easy to Empty Filter
I am very Happy with the this hoover machine. As a busy mother of two very active toddlers, there are always food accidents happening all over the carpet and sofas which are hard to clean but since the arrival of the hoover carpet cleaner my house is looking and feeling really clean.It has not only cleaned printer ink stains from the carpet but all was able to remove pens marks from the upholstery. It does take a while to understand the mechanics of it.but the manual is helpful. I have not use it on the tiles yet so cannot comment on that feature. It is a bit heavy to maneuver around when filled with cleaning detergent but you can get a hang of it. All in all very satisfied with the purchase.
Pros: Cleans Edges/Corners Well, Performs Well, Strong Suction, Great Value, Easy to Empty Filter
Compared to the Bissell power force, this thing is crazy good! You can feel the suction, and the dirty that came out of my floors was disgusting! It even removed stains that I thought were permanent and I didn't even pretreat. I even got to use on my car interior when my kid got sick... so much dirty water I want to use it on my entire car. So worth the money, and so easy to clean.
Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Performs Well, Looks Great, Strong Suction, Great Value, Easy to Empty Filter, Lots of Features, Nice Design
This machine cleans very very well, but is not made to last. Because it was assembled wrong in the factory, it did not spray out water using the trigger, so rather than return it, I took it slightly apart. There are two plastic rods that press on two buttons to make water spray from trigger and spot cleaner button. Only one of these was making contact. I was able to put those two plastic rods in the proper place and no more problems. But it was obvious that the machine is totally plastic and we'll see how long it lasts. Other than that, it is a great cleaner, great suction, really does the job.
