This is designed to collect spills and stains without the need to have a whole room item which is often the reason why professional carpet and floor cleaners exist. That wine stain fully removed along with 99% of any bacteria with this small handheld unit. The other main drawback with the full-size cleaner is where do you put the furniture while you use it.

Don’t get me wrong Vax do full size units which work almost like a vacuum and if you look back you will see reviews from me and they advertise them on TV, this is not designed to replace them but in around two minutes this can be ready to use and almost as soon as that the stain can be removed and it takes the water and cleaning solution back into the machine so you carpet is soon dry, on hard floors its even quicker as whatever is on the sealed floor is taken and the floor is dry again.
When I saw this demonstrated recently the floor have spaghetti in sauce some unidentified granules and tomato sauce as a cocktail and within a couple of minutes the floor was dry.
My own tests were on older stains in carpets one an ink stain from a printer was gone almost straightaway even though it happened a considerable time ago, I had just been putting something on top of it now I do not have to.
The unit is 28cm long a maximum of 17cm wide and 32cm tall.
All the new VAX units use the same removable rechargeable batteries which should give at least 30 minutes of cleaning per charge and the battery and charge unit are supplied in the box as is a bottle of the cleaning solution.
Apart from the hose that winds round the unit three different snap on tools are also included.
Once the battery is charged it fits into the machine in its own covered dock. Water goes into to another sealed area this is a smaller unit easily filled to a level from the tap and then cleaning solution goes on top to another marked level this is then fitted onto the machine. Once you have cleaned a third area is where all the dirty water is and it can be flushed away. The only other item to clean is the end of the wand and whatever brush fitment you have connected this is easy to remove and clean under a tap.
This small unit is also a great upholstery cleaner.
At this point you pick up the unit and put it away ready for the next spill. It comes with a three year guarantee.
