The cleaner’s brushes are made from very stiff bristles designed in a wave which then rotate to tackle dirt from various angles. There is a separate motor just for the brushes. Once the dirt is loosened, the cleaner sucks everything up with another dedicated motor for vacuuming. See More
Unlike most consumer-grade carpet cleaners, where you push forward and pull backward to clean, this one requires you to clean only by pulling backwards. After each backward pass, you will need to tilt the machine and push it back to the front. This takes some time to get used to. On the other hand, if you have used professional-grade machines before, then this method is very similar and you will learn it quickly. See More
The Rug Doctor Deep Carpet Cleaner is an extremely well-built and sturdy machine that feels like a commercial-grade product. It’s a more massive and more rigid unit than ordinary consumer-grade carpet cleaners. The plastic parts and the connection joints are very solid and durable. See More
This cleaner has a system with plenty of brushes that move in a constant, 360-degree counter rotating motion. With these brushes, it can clean carpets deeper than cleaners without these brushes. This feature is exclusive to Hoover and is very efficient at removing deep dirt, debris, and pet stains. The brushes can be easily removed for cleaning. See More
This machine forces cleaning solution deep into the carpet, where the spiral brush, together with the suction power, removes dirt and stains from the bottom up. For both automatic and manual operation, the Spotbot sprays and suction-dries in a single step. The soft brushes will not damage carpeting. See More
A standout feature of this carpet cleaner is the Automated Smart System for hands-free cleaning. Just fill up the machine with the cleaning solution, place it on the stain and it will do the rest. The cleaner has two motorized brush settings, one for newer, surface stains and a second for older, deeper stains. It will automatically apply the necessary amount of detergent to get the stain out. Once finished, the unit will give an alert. See More
The machine has 4 rows of power brushes that form a wavy pattern to deep clean your carpets. The intersecting movement of the stiff bristles scrubs dirt more efficiently than just sucking it up or washing with water. Bissell uses this same system for its more premium models. Keep in mind though that the motor isn’t as strong as the expensive ones so it can’t handle old and stubborn stains. See More
While you can use this machine for general carpet cleaning, you can’t clean hard to reach spots or clean furniture with it. That is because you can’t add any attachments like a furniture brush or a crevice tool. There are also no side brushes so it will leave a gap a few inches from the wall. See More
The cleaner comes with a variety of pads and cleaning solutions each with their unique purpose. Certain pads and solutions can be used for carpets or for hardwood floors. There’s also a pad for deep stain removal from carpets, but you’ll need to pretreat the stain with the included activating solution. There’s also a hard wood polish and a polishing pad. All of this with the combination of great maneuverability allows the unit to be used throughout the house to keep your floors fresh and clean no matter the flooring type. See More
Unlike other carpet cleaners where the water cools off over time, this unit has a heating element to keep your water warm. Warm water fights odor and deep stains better than just cold water. Keep in mind that this isn’t a fully functional water heater, so you still have to fill it up with hot water. See More
The machine comes with a pet-related stain remover tool with rubber needles that applies detergent to the bottom of carpets to target the root of the stain, while scrub brushes help break up dirt and debris. The built-in collection basket filters pet hair from the water it sucks in to keep the machine from clogging. For really bad stains like pet urine, you can shoot detergent and water directly at the stain for more effective spot cleaning. See More
Unlike some carpet cleaners, it doesn’t have separate tanks for clean water and extracted dirty water. Rather, it stores the clean water inside a very durable bag that shrinks as the clean water is used up. The pouch is surrounded by the dirty water while you're cleaning. This system eliminates the need for two tanks, but if you dump out the waste water in the tank, you lose some of your clean water. See More
