Vax Dual Power Pro Advance
From the moment I opened the box I was happy, as a reviewer items that come out of a box need to go back in the box and the three main components that make up the machine have clear positions and the large bag with all the extras fits down the side.
With something like this unless you live in a very large mansion it will not be used every day or even probably every week so storage or everything together is important so the next time it’s needed the parts are all immediately available.
Another joy the A5 Let’s Get Started Manual is on top and not at the bottom of the box. Why you may ask is this important as we all normally just go ahead and think we know how it all fits together and only when it does not work do we RTFM. Here I make an exception as carpets and water do not mix well so it’s important that things are used in the right way so you do not end up with a soggy mess so RTFM first.
Once assembled the unit weighs 9.5kilos and the cord length is 9metres so a full room should be cleanable from a single electric point. This is a powerful machine at 1200watts. Should you need help then online and phone support is available even at weekends and for good measure you get a six year guarantee.
The 20 page manual is full of clear easy to follow illustrations and joy of joys its fully in English. It even has a number of tips to do things easily and avoid possible problems.
As stated in most homes the problem will be what to do with the furniture while using the unit, one solution might be to do half a room at a time; another – providing the weather is clement – is to move furniture outside.
What you need is a clear space so plan the whole procedure.
Certain stains such as ink are probably permanent, red wine is possibly treatable but the sooner you deal with the initial stain the better and then let the machine get things back to normal.
So again RTFM to find out how best to use the extra tools like the Spin Scrub Tool and the pre-treatment wand so the actual cleaning should be easy.
A machine like this wets and dry’s all in one so the carpet never gets that wet and hence the time before the furniture can be replaced is less.
I might sound like a broken record but if you read and reread the manual about the only thing that can go wrong is a power cut half way through the cleaning process.
This is the best home carpet cleaning system hence the name Dual Power Pro Advanced. It is available from Amazon for £179.99 with free delivery.
