I have a Hoover SteamVac. I bought my first one about 15 years ago and just replaced it last summer. I bought another Hoover SteamVac, since I was very happy with my first one. I use it once a year to do a full cleaning of all rugs, carpets and fabric furniture, and I use it upon occasion to do spot cleaning of stains that I can't get out otherwise. It's extremely easy to use. When I do haul it out to do spot cleaning, it only takes 10 minutes to set it up, clean the spot and put it away. So it's not a major undertaking. Plus, it's relatively light, so it's easy to carry up and down stairs. Finally, it does a great job cleaning, although you should (and I do) use the pre-cleaning solution, as recommended. When I bought my first SteamVac, I had off-white carpeting and teenagers...and when I sold that particular house, the carpeting looked brand new. I still have several rugs and light colored fabric furniture (couch and chairs) that are all more than 10 years old, yet they also look brand new. Highly recommended.
