Sale on Hoover F7425 900 SteamVac Dual V with Spinscrub Hand Tool
Using hot tap water and cleaning solution, the 12-amp Hoover SteamVac V2 deep cleans carpet fibers, tough stains, and upholstery. It is also suitable for tile, ceramic, marble, and linoleum floors (though not appropriate for hardwoods). Named for its dual-nozzle construction, the cleaner provides efficient water removal and thorough edge-to-edge cleaning. The nozzle design forces hot air into the cleaning path and automatically rinses carpet clean on the backward pull. The SpinScrub brushes agitate ground-in dirt and can be turned off with a simple switch. Using a two-tank design that holds up to a gallon of water at a time, the cleaner automatically blends the cleaning solution, so you do not have to monitor it. Both tanks feature an enclosed design and convenient handles, making them easy to remove and transport. The recovery tank automatically shuts off suction when full and comes with a built-in lint screen. A removable view window on the nozzle lets you see dirty water returning to the machine.
For above-floor tasks, the cleaner comes with an 8-foot hose, a stair/upholstery tool, and a SpinScrub hand tool with rotating brushes. Conversion to tool cleaning is manual but quick, and you can remove the hose and tool caddy altogether for more streamlined use. The cleaner comes with a carrying handle, a 27-foot cord, quick-release cord hooks, and a foot pedal to release the handle. Fingertip switches and a trigger control the rinsing, washing, and Clean Surge functions. The removable brushes and a beltless design simplify maintenance. Hoover includes two 16-ounce bottles of detergent, one for carpet and one for bare floors, and backs up the machine with a full one-year warranty.

Worth Every Penny, By A Customer
I was hesistant only because of the price… but I'll tell you compared to the cost of professional carpet cleaners it will pay for itself with a few uses and the results are great.
The rotating brushes do a good job scrubbing and grooming carpet and ALL parts are easy to remove, fill, carry, replace, rinse out or clean. Easy minimal assembly. Easy to get the hang of and use on carpets. Haven't tried it on my kitchen tile yet. One of the best features is that you control shampoo application and can set machine to automatically rinse(apply suction)on the backward stroke. It will rinse with water and immediately suck it up on the backstroke if you tell it to (by holding button)or you have the option of just sucking alone(no water added). The benefit is you can scrub an area several times without wetting the carpet excessively AND you can use the suction without water to get the carpet very dry (which means it is dry enough to walk on pretty fast).
I've used the handtool with rotating brushes on the stairs and in hard to get to places. This tool is not fabulous, but good. You really have to follow the directions and get the hang of which direction to pull the tool in, when to spray the shampoo, etc. Maybe with practice I'll like it more.
2 things - this machine uses hot air forced onto the carpet for added cleaning and drying. When you have the hand tools plugged in, the brushes don't rotate on the big vac, but be aware that the hot air still comes out the bottom. The area where the vac is sitting while you're using the handtools will get quite warm if not moved periodically. Also the clean water/shampoo tank will drip a tiny bit from the valves on bottom for a second when removed during/after use so do this on tile or have a paper towel handy.
We are thrilled with this steamVac, By J. Alenskis
We read all the reviews, both plus and con and checked out the Hoover web site. We were ready to consider ordering on-line but wanted to "feel" the item. We checked Target, Costco, Sears, and walked into another national store and found this unit for $$$! We couldn't believe it so immediately bought it Jan 4.
My husband immediately (after reading the manual thoroughly) began the test runs. After forgetting the dry phase, he went back and sucked all the water up. Some grease stains had come back after professional cleaning and they are now gone. Coffee was spilled on upholstered chair and carpet and they are gone. The upholstery unit worked well and at this moment we are definitely happy. Oh yes, in today's paper Kmart has this unit on sale at a considerable savings.
We also have tried some left over Bissell solution and it works very well. We will be trying, as suggested, less cleaner from a supply house.
We are retired and live in about 2000 sq ft, 1 level home with carpet in all rooms except the kitchen. We will not be putting it to the same test that an active family with kids and pets would but the ease of operation and knowing we can keep the home clean is a big plus.
