Vax Dual Max Review


If you think about it, carpets really are one of the most used things in the entire house. We overlook how much a carpet is used in a day, but the whole time it can be right under our feet while we go on with our day. For this very reason, having a good carpet cleaner is necessary. This one by Vax is a Dual Max carpet cleaner.

Rotating Brush Cleaning

The Vax Dual Max uses something it calls a ‘dual rotating multi-row brush bar’ to clean your carpets. What this essentially means is that there are two separate brushes in the bottom. The first is a roller type brush that moves around and gathers as much dirt as possible.

Behind this brush is the second one, which is basically a row of small circular brushes that turn around to wash the carpet. There is a tool that comes included with this model to deal with tough stains and a hose to use it with. This tool is meant to be used by your hand if you need to get rid of a deep stain in a specific area.

You can apply the detergent by activating the trigger on the machine and will be sprayed onto the area you need to clean. Passing this area under the brushes will wash it, and the suction in the front of the cleaner will suck out all the dirty water that remains in the area, leaving your carpet clean.

It can thoroughly deep clean any area you would like on the carpet, which is very useful in households with pets or children. This machine can make it easy to wash and clean your carpets regularly.

Dual Tank

The tanks in this carpet cleaner have been separated so it can contain 4.2 L of clean water while also containing 3.5 L of dirty water. This is quite a large capacity for holding dirty and clean water in comparison to other carpet cleaners.

The main thing that a dual or twin tank would mean, practicality wise, is that you would have to empty this machine of dirty water while you go to fill it with clean water.

Emptying one while filling the other tank is easy to do, and the large capacity means that you may only have to do it once in every use.

However, a problem that seems to surface with separate clean and dirty water tanks is that if you have both of the types of liquid in the tank, and you wish to remove only the dirty water, it is likely that you will have to throw away the clean water with the detergent as well.

This product has received positive feedback regarding its performance. Most people consider it a very useful machine when spring cleaning rolls around and you need to wash up the dirt and stains that can accumulate every couple of months.

It is perhaps not for daily use, but it is considered relatively lightweight and has a large cord to use around the house. Although assembly and handling was easy, some users felt that the machine build could have been better.

Overall, if you are in the market for a carpet cleaner, this one is very powerful and effective. It can be a bit too strong for some carpets, and is not designed to be used on floors, so consider your home and lifestyle before you purchase it.
