Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Hoover SteamVac Carpet Cleaner with Clean Surge, F5914-900. The BoolPool rating for this product is Very Good, with 4.30 stars, and the price range is $129.99-$199.09.

The Hoover SteamVac Carpet Cleaner features a powerful 12-amp motor combined with 5 multi-directional spinning brushes that operate at high or low speeds to lift the usual and grime dirt out of carpets. These pop out brushes are easy to remove and rinse after use. It comes with 3-speed Brushroll Control setting – high for normal cleaning, low for gentle cleaning and off for spill pick-ups. The SpinScrubs grooms the carpet fibers from all sides for deeper cleaning. For stubborn stains or high traffic areas the Clean Surge feature sends an extra blast of cleaning solution into the stain by press of a button on the handle. When cleaning is complete, release the trigger and the SteamVac forces hot air into the cleaning path so you can do a few dry strokes over the stain.

The Hoover SteamVac has two separate water tanks – top tank holds clean hot water with detergent and lower tank holds the dirty solution picked up from the carpet. The dirty water tank is easy to unlatch and empty without spilling or making more mess. This cleaner has an 8 foot long hose and a special stair/upholstery nozzle to scrub out spots. Other attachments like bare floor nozzle and a powered hand tools are ideal for upholstery, small carpet area, stairs, car floors or other vertical surfaces. All tools are mounted in the front of the cleaner for convenience. Some other features are a brush indicator informing the spinning action; on/off foot pedal; handle release pedal and a 20 feet wraparound cord.

However, this cleaner is not very effective on hard or wooden surfaces. The frequent emptying and filling the tanks is considered a tedious process by many users and they wish that the dirty water tank had larger capacity.

With the Hoover SteamVac Carpet Cleaner, extend the life of your carpet with regular steam cleaning - and hit tough stains with the power of Clean Surge for spotless carpets. This carpet cleaner comes with good suction ability to pick up any kind of dirt or hair leaving behind a fresh smelling home with clean and revitalized carpets, rugs and upholstery.
