Regardless of how often you vacuum your carpets, you know that you’re not getting the deepest clean possible. A single carpet cleaning session can revitalize your floor from the effects of everyday living. Using the power of hot water, sudsy soap and rotating brushes, a carpet cleaner can scrub out old stains, new stains and deeply embedded dirt from high traffic areas.
You can get the most out of a carpet cleaner that combines top-of-the-line features, such as multiple brushes, strong suction, heated air drying and convenient accessories. More brushes means more opportunities for your carpet cleaner to scrub out stubborn stains and lift dirt from the fibers of your carpet. One of the most important features of a solid carpet cleaner is its ability to extract as much water as possible after you’ve cleaned a room. Machines that include an on-board dryer that forces heated air onto your carpets after sucking up water will help your carpets dry faster.
Though a carpet cleaner with higher amps doesn’t always offer better performance or water extraction, it is a good indicator of more power for the motor. Some power needs to be directed to other features, such as headlights.
The best carpet cleaners have one or more roller brushes that beat and agitate the carpet to loosen deep, set-in dirt and stains, which can then be cleaned and extracted, leaving you with clean, fresh, fluffed-up carpets.
Convenience & Design
As necessary as it is to have a carpet cleaner that performs well, it’s just as important to have a machine that is easy to use and easy to keep clean. In order to determine how easy a carpet cleaner is to use, we considered the weight of the machine, how easy it was to push and pull, and the vibration it produced. We also considered how long it took us to clean and extract water from the same size area for each carpet cleaner.
To gauge the carpet cleaner’s maintenance score, we considered the ease of emptying and rinsing the dirty water tank. The bigger the tanks are, the less often you’ll have to switch out water.
The carpet cleaners that had the biggest cleaning path were able to clean a larger surface area than those with smaller nozzles. And we found that those with extraction power from the whole cleaning head were able to get more water out than those that only had extraction from the front nozzle.
Carpet cleaners are going to be loud, but we wanted to test these machines to find out just how loud they are. Although they aren’t as loud as outdoor equipment and tools that require hearing protection, you may want to use earplugs with some of these machines, if you have sensitive ears.
