Hoover Steam Vac Reviews

Updated on July 20, 2011

A steam cleaner works by blowing steam mixed with detergent into your carpet and then sucking it back up. Steam cleaners are powerful machines and with the right one you can do a better job than a professional cleaning business.

Hoover has been a mayor brand in the vacuum cleaning market for decades and their high quality products have also become best sellers in the steam cleaner market.

In Hoover Steam Vac reviews I shortly review 2 steam cleaners. One low cost and one premium, more powerful machine. After which I recommend a detergent for use with these cleaners.

Hoover SteamVac Carpet Cleaner with Clean Surge, F5914-900

With this machine, it is advisable to read the instructions thoroughly before use. Many users fail to do this and experience problems that could be averted. Buyers have experienced leaks and blockages or no suction at all, simply because they did not read the easy to follow instructions initially.

Although the Steam Vac is quite well designed, it's plastic construction is a little less durable than that of the premium Hoover we also looked at. The powerful 12 amp motor with its five spinning brush action, that has a dual speed function, is adequate for the cleaning of almost any carpet. The upright handle houses a trigger mechanism that releases the cleaning agent with hot tap water. This is easy to use and very effective for any operator.

The main body of the Steam Vac consists of two tanks. The lower of the two tanks holds the dirty water and is easily emptied; the top tank holds the hot water and detergent which mix together automatically. The drying process consists of hot air being forced into the path of the cleaner.

When put through its paces the F5914-900 performed very well and the results were impressive, although on really dirty carpets more than one clean is needed. After use, the brushes should be cleaned as they can collect carpet fibers, hair and other debris that could impair the action, when used again.
