    I love this machine! I’ve been using it for several months, and now that I’m used to it, it’s very simple to use, clean, and carry. Highly recommend.

    Several reviewers have commented that it uses a lot of detergent. I’ve found that it really helps to do the whole floor with plain hot water before adding any detergent at all. Maybe my floors are exceptionally gross, but I can’t believe how much dirt I got up with plain water!

    But here is the best part…by using plain water first, you have created a damp carpet. When you go over it again with the cleaning solution, the damp fibers will be naturally “thirsty” and will wick the detergent deep into the carpet where you really need it. It’s the same principle that a watercolor artist uses when pulling excess paint into a slightly damp “thirsty brush.” It works! I got so much more deep dirt out with this method, and saved soap in the process.

    Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe – 5 STARS!, May 25, 2015

    Awesome machine! Very much exceeded my expectations – comes with all the attachments that you could possibly need!

    Just 2 philips screws that attach the handle. Everything else snaps easily in place.

    1st Water Tank – holds hot clean water. Also has a place for the cleaning solution to be poured in.
    2nd Water Tank – picks up the dirty water. Machine shuts off automatically when you need to replace the water.

    Carpet Miracle by Sunny & Honey – This carpet cleaning solution is far superior to Hoover’s (works better and smells great).
    Carpet Miracle – Carpet Cleaner Solution: Hoover, Bissell, Rug Doctor, Kenmore, Carpet Express


    STEP 1
    Vacuum the entire area you plan to clean.

    STEP 2
    In “RINSE” mode go over the entire are you plan to clean.
    This step makes the carpet damp. The cleaning solution works much better with a damp carpet.

    STEP 3
    In “WASH” mode work over one area of the room at a time.

    STEP 4
    Switch the nob to “RINSE” mode and go over the same area again.
    – This activates the carpet solution to work further to remove stains and odors.
    – It also sucks up the remaining carpet solution that was initially left behind.

    STEP 5
    – Allow the carpet to air dry / use a fan / open the windows.
    – Vacuum the carpet after it is fully dry to pick up any loose dirt / loose carpet fibers.

    In the attached photo, I cleaned carpet that was never cleaned since it was installed almost 10 years ago, in 2006.
    Today, it looks as if it was just purchased and installed. The stains are gone and the carpet fibers feel like new once again.

    UPDATED FOR 2016: Side-by-Side Comparison with Two Other Hoover Carpet Cleaners, February 24, 2013

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)


    This is a head-to-head review of three Hoover carpet cleaners that are currently featured on the comparison chart on on the product page:
    Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe Carpet Washer, FH50150
    Hoover SteamVac Carpet Cleaner with Clean Surge, F5914-900
    Hoover MaxExtract 60 PressurePro Carpet Deep Cleaner, FH50220

    We’ve had the SteamVac for about 5 years. It has done a good job of cleaning our carpets, which are kept dirty by three dogs. We reviewed the MaxExtract last year, and recently had a chance to compare those two against the PowerScrub. Here’s how they compare.

    A three-way tie. I used Hoover Premium Pet Formula Carpet/Upholstery Detergent in all three machines, according to the instructions for each (premix for the SteamVac, separate compartments for the other two). We cleaned separate sections of big spots with each machine. To our eyes, they were equally clean when wet, and also when dry. All three units are loud, like every other carpet cleaner.

    The PowerScrub and the MaxExtract have a very nice feature: You add the detergent to a separate compartment from the hot water. A switch enables you to spray mixed detergent solution, or plain water. One complaint we had after using the SteamVac for several years is that the sections of carpet with the worst stains would sometimes get dirty again fast. These deeply stained areas got a lot of detergent sprayed on them during cleaning, and we believe the stains might come back due to detergent buildup in the carpet. With the newer PowerScrub and MaxExtract models, you can switch to plain water and rinse these areas (or your whole carpet!)

    The SteamVac has a Clean Surge feature that applies extra solution to stains and heavy traffic areas. I never found this to work any better than a just passing over the area again the normal way.

    The carpets were noticeably dryer with this MaxExtract model. If you live in a colder area, or a humid area, this could be a deciding factor for you. The MaxExtract carpet fully dried in about half the time that the SteamVac carpet took. The PowerScrub carpets seemed slightly dryer than the SteamVac, but not as dry as the MaxExtract.

    An unexpected outcome was that the PowerScrub and MaxExtract use significantly more detergent than the SteamVac-my guess is 50-100% more. Even using the maximum recommended amount of detergent in the SteamVac, it uses less.

    The MaxExtract and PowerScrub hot water and detergent tank is easier to fill because pre-mixing is not necessary. This is not a huge deal, but the MaxExtract and PowerScrub are clearly newer machines with nice refinements in this area.

    The PowerScrub wins big points for its redesigned dirty water tank. It has a plug that you open to pour out the dirty water. This is MUCH easier than the MaxExtract or the SteamVac, both of which require you to take off the lid to pour out the water. With the PowerScrub, you use the spout to pour out dirty water, then only take of the lid once at the end of the day to rinse the tank and sponge filter. When you clean a lot of carpets, this kind of refinement matters.

    The SteamVac and the PowerScrub include a SpinScrub hand tool with a spinning brush. We found this tool to be nearly useless. It seems like a lot of the suction power that comes down the hose is used just to spin the brush, so there is less suction left to suck out the dirty water. We found the simple Carpet and Upholstery Tool included with all three machines worked much better.

    SteamVac: Costs less to buy and use, but this is an older machine that does not have the refinements of the other two. Leaves carpets wetter, and may leave more detergent in the carpet unless you empty the detergent tank and fill it with water only.
    MaxExtract: As its name suggests, leaves carpets drier than the other machines. Allows you to rinse with water.
    PowerScrub: Easiest emptying of the dirty water tank, which is very nice. Allows you to rinse with water.

    If you are cost conscious, buy the SteamVac. If you want the easiest experience, buy the PowerScrub. If you want dryer carpets quicker, buy the MaxExtract. You will get clean…
