Vax Dual Power Pet Advance Carpet Cleaner Review

As a long-time user of carpet cleaners, I was in need of a new one and the Vax Dual Power Pet Advance Carpet Cleaner caught my eye. It promised to lift tough, deep-down dirt from carpets using dual rotating brushbars and had a twin tank technology that separated clean water from dirty, making it easy to fill and empty. It also came with a wash tool and 2.4 m stretch hose for stairs and upholstery cleaning, as well as a pre-treatment wand and solution for tackling stubborn stains. Plus, it came with a 1 year guarantee for complete peace of mind.

So far, I’ve been impressed with the Vax Dual Power. It was easy to assemble, with basic but clear instructions, and as someone who has used a Vax carpet cleaner before, I found it easy to use. Simply fill the top tank with hot water and carpet cleaner and you’re ready to go. The only minor issue I had was with the tanks, which were slightly awkward to replace, but on the plus side, they were easy to clean.

One thing I noticed was that the suction power could be a bit stronger to help dry the carpets. At first, I thought the machine wasn’t spraying the carpet evenly, but it was because the carpet was so wet. Still, I’m a big fan of carpet cleaners and am glad that they have become more affordable over the years. If you have small children or pets, you will definitely need a carpet cleaner and can expect to use it several times a week. No matter how clean your carpets look, they can harbor all sorts of nasty things, so it’s important to deep clean them regularly.

I wouldn’t recommend this particular model to a new user unless they are willing to maintain it properly. The dual brushes are great for collecting pet hair, but if the machine isn’t properly taken care of, they can seize up. In my experience, it’s always a good idea to get insurance for a carpet cleaner. Once you’ve assembled it and plugged it in, make sure to unplug it before cleaning underneath, as hair and sand can collect quickly. And be sure to constantly check and clean it to ensure it’s always ready to use. The attachments on the Vax Dual Power are sturdy and have held up well so far. Overall, I’m happy with my purchase and would recommend the Vax Dual Power to others.
