Pros Fast and easy set-up. Easy storage. Cleans all floor surfaces great. Highly recommend.
Cons Heavy to carry up/down stairs when full. Attachment tool setup too tedious.
Recommended it? Yes

This cleaner is great.

My wife says it's the best household carpet cleaner she has ever used and even rivals some commercial units we have used in the past.

Her only 2 minor complaints are that its relatively heavy if carrying up/down stairs when full, and the hand tool setup is a bit... Read full review »

My family purchased the Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 with clean surge about a year ago. I had just given my old Bissell away, and I regret doing that to this day. 

Update: My sister borrowed the Bissell. She wanted to shampoo her home, and car. She had... Read full review »

Pros Cleaning solution heater, CleanSurge, does a great job
Cons Noisy, hand tool attachment, emptying the waste tank
Recommended it? Yes

We recently replaced a Hoover carpet cleaner that we first purchased in 1997. We have had two small dogs, now on our second generation, since 1994, and with puppies in the house there will always be “those” accidents!

Our old machine, model F5881-900 Series N7.9, was an excellent... Read full review »

Pros Easy to use. Effective. Great Extraction
Cons No rinse feature. Could be built a little better
Recommended it? Yes

This is one of Hoover's Staples. Its design hasn't changed much in quite a few years. Personally, I think this is the BEST of all the Hoover models! The price range makes it worth it and it does a GREAT job "IF" you use it correctly. Perhaps there are some lemon's out there? I've been lucky. ... Read full review »

We purchased the Hoover SteamVac F5914-900 with Clean Surge a month ago because we were tired of half done efforts by carpet cleaning companies and soaked carpets for days afterward. My husband researched it on the internet but it was the positive reviews on epinions.com that convinced him about... Read full review »

I have had my Hoover Steamvac for not even 9 months. It now shoots cleaning solution all over except where I want it to be. I used it once a month, sometimes more often. It did not hold up well at all. I would not recommend this machine. I can't believe I paid almost $200 for a shampooer that... Read full review »

Pros Cleans very well, rotating brushes, good extraction power
Cons Mediocre stair cleaning, unknown how long unit will last
Recommended it? Yes

There is a fine line between professional carpet cleaning and the rental machines at your local stores. I would say that this product fits neatly between a professional job and rental machines. It works substantially better than rental machines, but is still not quite up to par with professional... Read full review »

Pros Great job on the upholstery. I like the design.
Cons Not fun to stop in the middle of a job and return the product.
Recommended it? No

I bought this yesterday and used it first to clean upholstery. It did a good job. Then I decided to do the carpet. The brushes would not spin. I called Hoover, and they said it had to be defective. I'm heading for the store to return it now. I may try another one. I'll let you know if it works. Read full review »

About two years ago, I decided that instead of paying over $600 to have all of our carpets cleaned, I would instead invest in a carpet steamer so I could do more regular cleaning of our carpets.
