Hoover Max Extract 60

I love clean carpets. Who doesn’t, right?! I rarely have time to deep clean my house and when I do I go all out. The carpet in this house is a weird brown that I would never have installed in my house had I been the owner of it. On top of it, I have now 4 kids living here and the previous tenants didn’t really care at all about this place. So the brown carpet was darn near black in high traffic areas.

I did happen to go over them with a very old steam cleaner and I’m pretty sure that all it did was turn dirt into mud and fluff the carpet. So I got the Hoover Max Extract 60 Pressure Pro and what did I do? I went to town. In my house.

Here is a little or a lot of information about this little beauty from Hoover’s website:

I went to work on my carpets with this puppy in the hallway first. High traffic. Black carpet that should be brown. I will say that I pre-treated some of the more prominent areas that needed it. And I will also say that I did it quickly and without reading the directions.

BUT. With saying that.

It came out great. The black is back to brown. It’s fluffy and soft. No crunchiness that you can get from steam cleaners. I am impressed.

Next thing I did was the stairs with the attachment. That worked great with no problems also.

The only issue I would say and I would address this as MY fault is not getting the edge of the carpet where it meets the tile clean enough. I’m sure if my impatient self read the directions I would understand how to get this area effectively and efficiently.

Would I recommend the Hoover Max Extract 60 Pressure Pro? You betcha. It’s easy to assemble (1 screw) it’s heavy BUT not overly bulky that it’s irritating. And it suction and pressure is just right.
