Cheap Construction

byva3girls4us Jan 10, 2011
2 Helpfuls 3 Helpfuls Was this review helpful?
Pros Convenience
Cons Cheaply made plastic pieces that break from day one.
Recommended it? No

I bought this several years ago and will say that it does still work. It's not a professional cleaner but it's a good machine to maintain carpets and to, sometimes, clean up a harder mess. However, the construction--particularily that of the clean water/detergent tank--is cheap, fragile and a... Read full review »

Pros When it works, it does a good job
Cons The brush sets lock up and break the drive brush which isn't covered under warranty.
Recommended it? No

Even after a bad experience with a smaller Hoover, I purchased this expensive model (F7452-900) based on the recommendation from Consumer Rreports.  On only the third use, the square shaft on the drive brush broke. 

As this was the SAME problem with my other Hoover I was... Read full review »

Pros Long Hose, Long Cord, Rinse Cycle Option, Tools.
Cons Kind of heavy. Hard to carry up and down stairs.
Recommended it? Yes

I have this same Hoover Steam Vac Dual-V purchased from K-Mart in 2008. This thing is a workhorse! It has powerful suction, and nice "SpinScrub" rotating brushes that dig deep into the carpet. The first time I used it, I was sold. I bought this unit to replace a crapy Bissell unit. When in the... Read full review »

I decided to purchase this new carpet cleaner as my other one was given to a friend, but basically the same model.  I noticed that this model was rated highest by Consumer Reports (although they say it does not take the place of a regular carpet cleaning service in getting up...

Four kids and bit of OCD has made me good friends with Hoover cleaners.  In the late 90's when Hoover introduced upright carpet cleaning I purchased the first model.  It wetted and vacuum the solution but I can't say it did a lot for cleaning.  A few years passed and spin brushes...

Cons really none--cannot beat the value here

I was hesitant in buying any of the "home-owner" carpet steam extractors or shampooers because I had cleaned for sevral years with both a truck mount steam extractor and very good portable equipment.  Bottom line...I am out of the business and this type of equipment is just too expensive for...

Pros Easy to Use, Effective, Bagless
Cons Heavy
Recommended it? Yes

This is a good effective carpet steamer for the home. It has scrubbing brushes that pick up a lot of pet hair and dirt. Also it has a separate rinsing feature to remove all cleaning agents and residue. It's a little bulky and hard to maneuver in my opinion, so my husband uses it more than me - He...

Be Careful handling the Waste Water Container!!!

Had big hopes for this machine. Replaced and old tried and true hoover I had for 10 years.  Got it home, unpacked the box and accidently dropped the waste water bucket. Immediately the plastic pice that holds the handle on, shattered. Mind you, I dropped it on CARPETING. No way it could be... Read full review »

Pros Great cleaning ability, carpet/hard floors.
Cons Poor quality machine.
Recommended it? Yes

I would not recommend purchasing the Hoover F7452-900 SteamVac unless you find some sort of extended warranty coverage on it.  Honestly the cleaning that this unit does is great, I especially like the fact that the spinbrushes rotate parallel to the ground  as opposed to a rolling beater bar.  I...

I was using it normally, and I stopped it to change out the water.  When I turned it back on it made a lower whurring sound and I was told by a technician that the motor burned out. It seems strange that it would burn out when I turned it on, compared to when I was using it.  I wasn't doing...

Pros Good cleaning job.
Cons It is heavy and doesn't hold up with use.
Recommended it? No

I used this product only twice before the brushes stopped rotating.  The drive for the brushes is a single plastic rod that just did not hold up.  It will cost quite a bit to have this repaired and I am trying to decide on another and better brand and just consider this to be a lesson learned.  I...

Pros Cleans very well, removes spots easily -- good for dog owners.  Seems very reliable.
Cons Some parts are difficult to clean.
Recommended it? Yes

Our house is on a dirt road, in a windy area and designed around our dogs -- they come and go thru their dog door, bringing in dirt, gravel, mud (when it rains--an infrequent occurrence) and some of the most appalling items you don't want to know about.  So we have carpet... Read full review »

First, be aware that this is a very long review with lots of details. Take a seat because this will take some time to read. For those who have seen this before, this should be the final update.

Pros ...ummm.... brightens carpets by about three shades.
Cons may catch on fire if the valves break, noise wakes the dead.

When most people think about cleaning their carpeting, some think of spending a certain amount of money to have the carpet professionally cleaned. Others think about purchasing a carpet cleaner from the store. We chose the latter. When it did work it worked fine, though there was a slight noise... Read full review »
