“Vax Rapide carpet cleaner”

published 19/10/2006

ProQuick and value for money

Consnoise, weight

Vax Rapide Deluxe V-026 **Introduction** I bought this carpet cleaner 3 months ago after looking at various models but mainly just Vax and Bissell brands. I'd heard very good reports from friends about both brands, most people said that the carpets 'came up as new' so I decided to take the plunge...

ProIt cleans what it is supposed to

ConsPoor design and quality

I've owned this carpet cleaner with upholstery attachment for nearly exactly two years, when purchased it was on offer at £69.99, currently £81.74 (RRP £149.99)at amazon. The first and probably most important thing I would say about this cleaner is don't pay £149.99 or you may be disappointed. At...

When we moved into our home 2 years ago it was a new build and came complete with cream carpets! This sounds lovely but then along came my son Jack and I quickly learnt that cream carpets and toddlers do not go together AT ALL!!! I was fed up of paying out for sombody to come out and clean my...

“Cleaning up or washed out?”

published 10/04/2007

ProLightweight, easy to store, fairly cheap

Conssmall tank capacity, requires repeat use

To give you some background on the conditions our Vax works in, we have three dogs, three rats, and a 19 month old who is in to everything. We have more than our fair share of "accidents" on a day to day basis. We used to hire a Rug Doctor to clean our carpets, but with the cost it could only...

“Vax V026 de Luxe”

published 01/12/2005

ProPrice, weight, and the hose

Conspower, fragile

This isn't a vacuum cleaner. As a carpet washer is a reasonable value for money, however the water filter should be more resistent. My one has got rupted in the third time that has been used, the cost of the filter is £3.99 and if you try to buy online via vax website, the item is out of stock...

I bought mine from Amazon when it was on sale for £82.99, not sure what it is now. Well worth the money. I have a dog, a cat and 2 kids so I have been using my vax once a month. It is amazing to see what the vax picks up even though the carpets don't look that dirty. I also noticed that the smell...

Prowas a good machine while it worked

Consbroke after three months of use!

I purchased my vax machiene in January and three months later it stops working. It just will not continue to suck up any dirt. After contacting Vax they tell me it is a caps problem straight away which makes me wonder how often they experience this problem! They ask me to send the machine to them...

“Great carpet cleaner”

published 02/09/2013

ProEasy to use

ConsNoisy

The Rapide Deluxe Carpet cleaner was really straight forward to assemble together. After working out the usage part in the book ( if you get stuck then there is a video online explaining it better) i was ready to go. I have never used a carpet cleaner before and was a bit skeptical on how clean...

Cleans the carpets ok, stair brush is handy. However the quality is quite bad. The filter bust after second use. The cleaner malfunctioned after sixth use, it lost power and hasn't worked since. I would not recommend buying this product, and instead would hire a cleaner in future.
