We've been using the Hoover SteamVac Spin Scrub for over five years now and it seems to be doing just fine. We only use it two to three times a year for a thorough cleaning of all the carpeted floors, but its held up nicely over the years. Maneuverability This Hoover is pretty basic, its a bit on the heavier side and you just push it back and forth. It doesn't glide around very easily, just a solid movement back and forth on the carpet. Ease of Maintenance We haven't had any issues, we only use it a few times a year, and we follow the directions and use the proper cleaning fluids and its working great still. Suction Performance You may have to go over a few areas of the carpet to suck up the water, but even then its still damp to the touch. After doing all of our carpets we still have to air dry with fans on to make sure it dries after a few hours. Versatility We've only used it for our home carpets, and for small rugs. It does a basic job, not sure if its really made to clean furniture or other things. I wouldn't. Design This cleaner is basic enough to figure out, its just annoying to repeatedly fill with hot water and cleaner. We do empty and refill it three to four times while cleaning, but we are doing our entire house. Durability Its lasted over five years so far, so its pretty durable.
