Post Christmas Clean Ups With Vax Dual Power Pro | A Review

Friday, 6 January 2017
Living with two young children and two dogs is not the cleanest of combinations let me tell you. so with this in mind, you can imagine the regular state in which my flooring gets in. When we purchased this house last Summer, this was the whole reason for having laminate all through the lower floor. But, even mopping that daily, well several times a day it still doesn't look 'show home' ready. Oh, and don't even get me started on the stairs carpets, the carpets upstairs are a little better but still have several colouring marks on them. 

Just before Christmas the lovely folk at Vax sent us one of their Dual Power Pro Carpet Cleaners. So you may be thinking I've just told you I have laminate all on the lower floor, but this isn't just a carpet cleaner but a hard flooring one too. 

Previous to receiving this we had another carpet cleaner so kind of knew what we were doing. Ashley couldn't wait to begin and no sooner had it arrived he was opening it and ready to get cleaning. The instructions didn't really get a look in, there was a few pieces additional to the main hoover, but assembly was self-explanatory and we were ready to go within 10 minutes. In an additional bag were some of the accessories such as the hose, the attachment for hard flooring and two other brushes. 

One thing about this cleaner which instantly caught our attention was the different tanks. Of course we knew there would be a waste water and clean water, but our previous cleaner had the solution in with the water where as this one has a separate cleaning solution tank. The idea behind this is any unused solution is able to go back into the bottle for another use. The solution tank holds around 1.4L, whilst the clean water tank holds around 4.5L and finally the dirty water tank holds around 3.9L. This cleaner features an 'Auto-Mix Technology' which ensures the correct amount of solution is mixed with the water which I really like. 

So onto the actual machine, when looking underneath it looked a lot more powerful than our previous cleaner. The Vax featured various brushes which seem to go deep into the carpet and lift deep dirt, whilst also having a roller with various bristles on too. 

Now, I'm not joking when I say, we cleaned the entire floors within the house in a day. Ashley became obsessed with this new toy we had and decided to do the entire house, I'm not complaining. Initially we began with the downstairs so for this we placed on the hard floor piece and away we went. So normally we would mop the floor, but when the sun shines through you can see all the marks from where the water has dried and your mop lines. I expected the same from using the Vax but pleasantly I was surprised. As it was initially being cleaned the floor seemed to turn into an ice skating rink with all the water coming out, then as we went back over the Vax sucked a lot of the water back up and then we just waited for the remainder to dry. I didn't think it would make too much difference to the downstairs floors as they are cleaned regular but even so there was some filthy patches and we got the grimy water. 

Next up the stairs, now these were disgusting, we have cream carpets throughout the stairs and all the upper floor so you can imagine the colour these get in, even with a no shoes upstairs rule, which no one listens too. We added on the attachment and started away at the stairs, whilst the lower step didn't come out as new it was so much better than it was before. The colour of the dirty tank when doing the stairs was actually an embarrassment, but afterwards when it was dry you could tell the amazing difference which had been made. 

Overall, we have had some amazing results using this cleaner and it didn't seem to take half as much time as it did with our previous cleaner and even gave much better results. If you are after a cleaner which can tackle numerous jobs such as carpets, hard floors, stairs and upholstery the VAX Dual  Power Pro Carpet Cleaner is the one for you. It's priced with an RRP of £329.99 but you certainly won't be disappointed after purchasing.
