Eeekk! Dirty carpets! That has to be one of the grossest things in my house, with 3 kids and a hubby that wears shoes in the house the carpets can get gross rather quickly and so a carpet cleaner that is quick and easy to use is needed in my house. No matter how clean the rest of the house is, dirty carpets make it look like the house is still a mess and so one of my favorite things is freshly carpet cleaned carpets.
The Hoover Max Extract® 60 Pressure Pro™ Carpet Deep Cleaner was super easy to set up. All the parts come in the box with easy to follow instructions. Easy to follow instructions are very important to me, I hate getting something that needs to be put together and it is like reading alien language to put it together.
It did not take long to put it together and get it ready to get a hold of my gross carpets (yes I admitted that my carpets were gross, they were!).
Filling the water and cleaning solution container is easy, the container pops right out of its “spot” on the top and you fill the one side with your cleaner and the other side with the water(and it fits easily in my kitchen sink to fill it).
Once the water solution and cleaning solutions are filled its easy to pop it in it’s “spot”
Just turn it on with the push button and if you are cleaning the carpets switch it to the wash setting and get rolling with the cleaning. Once you are done washing the carpeted area turn the switch to rinse and just go over the carpets like you did when you were cleaning. If you do not want to go over the floors twice you can go forward with the machine to clean and then pull it backwards over the spot that you just did to rinse it. You will see the dirty water bin fill with all the grossness (which is a great way to see that it really is working while you clean). Once you have rinsed the carpets just push down on the foot lever and pop the dirty water bin out and pour the grossness down the drain! It is super easy to put it back in, just pop it on in and then stand the handle back up. Just be careful if the water and cleaning solution compartment has liquid still in it because laying it flat will make it leak.
I have borrowed a friends carpet cleaner a few times since we moved in back in November, but when I found out that that we would have the chance to review a carpet cleaner I let the carpets get quite a bit dirtier then I normally would. I figured I might as well put it to the cleaning test as best as I could 🙂
This is the carpet in my daughter’s room, as you can see its gross, and really needs to have a good scrubbing with a carpet cleaner 🙂
The carpet came out great! As you can see those dark dirt spots are gone, even the one that was by the front of the room that has been there since we moved in is much lighter and cleaner then it was before I used the Hoover Max Extract 60 Pressure Pro Carpet Deep Cleaner. What was even better then other carpet cleaners I have used it that the floor dried much faster then I have ever had carpets dry before. With in about 10 minutes the carpet was completely dry. I know when I use my friends or the rental from the store it is normally about 30-40 minutes before I can let the kids go in the room and start playing again because the floor is soaking wet.
We also have 2 cats, Tucker and Jazmin who no matter what we do shed like there is no tomorrow, so the attachment piece is great for cleaning my couches. If you have stairs in your house you will easily be able to leave the carpet cleaner at the bottom of the stairs and use the attachment piece to get them clean 🙂
Cleaning the machine is important for any carpet cleaner to make sure that it lasts longer and stays in working order. It is easy to clean the Hoover Max Extract 60 Pressure Pro Carpet Cleaner. Lift the dirty water compartment and clean out the lint filter and make sure you rinse out the dirty water compartment too, then just pop the dirty water compartment back into place. The bottom brushes are designed to pop out for easy cleaning and replacing(if you need to replace them), just remove the dirty water and water/cleaning solution compartments, put the handle in the up right position and pop it out by grabbing firmly and pulling it out. You can easily clean the brushes by running them under warm water, then just put the brush piece back in 🙂 You can also remove the front nozzle (you know that big huge plastic piece in the front, yea I didn’t know that it had an actual name either), to clean this remove both of liquid compartments, make sure the handle is in the up right position and then pull on the tab at the rear edge and pull forward. Putting it back on is easy too, just line up the tabs and push back onto the cleaner.
While you all know that I am not allowed to use the vacuum in my house, the carpet cleaner is so easy to use that even I (the one who breaks the vacuum) can use it with no problems!
You can purchase the Hoover MaxExtract 60 PressurePro Carpet Deep Cleaner, on Amazon.
