Vax W86-DP-B Dual Carpet Cleaner Review


How you choose to decorate your home says a lot about you and your style. While some people prefer leaving the floor as it is, others decide to cover it with aesthetically pleasing carpets. These carpets play a huge role in enhancing the beauty of the home décor.

If your house is furnished with carpets and rugs, chances are you are used to dealing with stubborn stains as well as cleaning dust. You see, just having a carpet is not enough. You need to clean it regularly to make sure that it continues to look pleasing throughout its life.

For this purpose, you will require a carpet cleaner. If you don’t have one already, you should give Vax's W86-DP-B a try.

Easy to Manoeuvre

What good is a carpet cleaner if it is too cumbersome to operate, or too inconvenient to manoeuvre around the house? After all, the primary purpose of such a product is to clean the carpet efficiently, and to do so the carpet cleaner in question must be one which is easy to control.

This Vax model offers customers just that. The W86 is fairly light - 6 kg (the last Bissell we reviewed was 9 kg) - which not only ensures the portability of the product, but also makes it easy to store. It also has a narrow floor head, which allows you to clean around furniture efficiently.

Enhanced Performance

Are you tired of purchasing new carpets each time your old one picks up a stubborn stain? Is your carpet a daily reminder of spills and that New Year's Eve party you had in 2009? If so, you will appreciate the enhanced performance of this product.

The W86 is equipped with dual rotating brush bars which play a role in loosening as well as lifting out the dirt from your carpet. The Vax cleaning solution included ensures that all stains are taken care of regardless of how stubborn they are.

We like this model for its ability to clean the carpet quickly, which makes it convenient. Moreover, the performance is satisfactory and the capacity of the tank is enough to allow for efficient cleaning. You will save energy by using this Vax, energy you can use to do other, more important things!

However, some customers have reported that this carpet washer is prone to leakage which ends up creating a lot of mess, and hence undermines the cleaning ability of the product a little. Moreover, it does not have an upholstery brush, and therefore is a bit less flexible than some other devices.

Since this carpet cleaner is available at a reasonable price and delivers superior performance when it comes to cleaning, we are happy to overlook the minor flaws exhibited by the product.

All in all, if you want a product which does all the work while you merely glide it across the floor, then you will appreciate the Vax W86-DP-B Dual Carpet Cleaner for its value-added features.
