I have purchased and do own and really like this Hoover SteamVac Spotter Carpet Cleaner. This is one of the best investments I have ever made especially as far as cleaning goes. For anyone who does not own a steam cleaner you are missing out and this is a good one to get. I used to rent steam cleaners from the stores and have even had my carpets professionally cleaned when one day I decided I was going to buy me a steam cleaner and in the long run save a lot of money. So I decided to purchase this Hoover SteamVac Spotter Carpet Cleaner and I am glad I did. This cleaner gets my carpets just as clean or even cleaner than when the professionals do it. It is very easy to use although it does require some elbow grease. It has even gotten out stains I have had for years. It surely comes in handy when someone spills look aid. This Hoover SteamVac is a bit expensive but worth it in the long run. I would really suggest that if you can afford to hat you invest in this.
