five to 10 years ago: we bought a hoover and a bissell each around $120
price tag, and the gallon or so of dirty extraction doesn't seem to be
enough to satisfy any family member to want to use either one more than
6 times per user.
the urge will be to dream about getting out a garden hose or a pump up
sprayer and a long hosed shop vac with a drain at the bottom. but you
can't let the padding or wood floor get that wet or odors and damage
if this a basement mildew job you must remove/bleach/replace with new
if this is a newer carpet compare commercial cleaning costs and speedy
if this a worn out carpet do the math on replacement.
I have the new hoover which include an option to jujst use plain water
to rinse. The "shampoo" is in a seperate bottle so you can shampoo
rinse and just use suction. It works well. 150.00 or so
rug doctor is also now selling their cleaner 729.00 is way too
steep for me!
I have the widepath model of the hoover with the auto rinse feature. Seems
to work well. We have used it a ton and so far it has been reliable. THe
extra wide model like we have is a good idea. In an emergency (at a
different location) we rented a rug doctor unit. It was skinny and took
forever to do the job though it did a good job. Both do better than the
commercial guys that do your whole house in 90 minutes. How can that be
thorough? It can't.
