Everyone loves a clean carpet - and sometimes, a vacuum cleaner just doesn’t cut it. That’s where carpet cleaners come in. But when it comes to buying one, there are so many options. So, to help you decide, we’ve sifted through numerous website and consumer reviews to present our 5 recommended products. Okay, first up.
The Front Runner
Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Cleaner (FH50150)
Efficiency and effectiveness are what make this carpet cleaner great. Praised for its deep cleaning abilities, this $200 Hoover model features dual tanks, one with clean water and one with dirty, allowing you to extract stubborn stains and dirt. It also rapidly dries your carpet using heat, so you’re not left with a damp floor. Accompanied by a handheld upholstery tool - which is great for stairs and furniture - this is one of the most effective and practical machines out there. In fact, it was voted best overall carpet cleaner by websites goodhousekeeping and thehousewire.
The Pet Option
Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet Pro
Most carpet cleaners can dig down deep and extract pet hairs and odours, but some are more adept at it than others - like this Bissell ProHeat. With its Express Clean and Deep Clean modes, users can choose how rigorous they want a clean to be - which is great for targeting stains. There’s actually a Clean Shot treatment that’s built-in, which can fire a concentrated burst of soap onto a targeted area. Priced at $270, this carpet cleaner can also be used with Bissell’s various cleaning products, including one that specifically targets pet urine.
The Pro Option
Rug Doctor Deep Carpet Cleaner (93140 Series)
It doesn’t matter how good domestic carpet cleaners claim to be, the machines used by professional cleaning services are usually more powerful. But this Rug Doctor model nicely bridges the gap, offering 75% extra power when compared with other carpet cleaners. It may look more cumbersome, but this machine is packed full of great features, like a collapsible, stow-away design, a lift-out tank for emptying dirty water, and an impressive quick-dry feature. It’s price is reasonable too, at $260.
The Portable One
Bissell SpotClean 3624 Professional Portable Carpet Cleaner
Not everyone’s got the space for a bulky carpet cleaner. So if you want to keep things compact, BISSELL has this small but mighty SpotClean Professional model. But don’t let its size fool you. It can still utilise heated water and cleaning products to deep clean, and it has suction that’s comparable to bigger rivals. True, its tank is smaller, which means it performs better on small areas in the house or in your car, but its five-foot hose and ample power means it's still a great cleaning option.
Before we reveal our last pick, we wanted to give a few other great products a shout out:
Dupray Neat Steam Cleaner
Hoover Smartwash Automatic Carpet Cleaner (FH52000)
Bissell Big Green Professional Carpet Cleaner (86T3)
The Budget Pick
Hoover PowerDash Carpet Cleaner (FH50700)
If you’re trying to keep costs down, then this low-cost Hoover model is the one to beat. Priced at just $100, this carpet cleaner is compact and lightweight, weighing less than 13 pounds. It also has dual tanks to separate its clean and dirty water, and its removable nozzle makes freshening up the machine a breeze. On Amazon, it holds an average 4.5 star rating, from almost 14,000 consumer reviews - that’s impressive.
So which carpet cleaner should you choose? Well, price is of course a big factor. But another is tank capacity, with some having small reservoirs that require emptying more frequently. So if you plan on cleaning bigger areas, make sure to pay close attention to tank size.
