Hoover Power Scrub Elite Pet Carpet Cleaner

Having carpet in the home is so warm and comforting, yet the off-white carpeting throughout my home not only gets filthy-looking fast {thanks to accident prone me, three kids and two pets} – yet carpeting is also a great harbour of germs and bacteria. I think we’ve all read about the health benefits in regularly cleaning the carpets in the home, so there’s no need to reiterate the obvious.

This is why I’ve always hired a carpet cleaning service annually – to remove dust, ground-in dirt and germs, and to keep my carpet looking fresh and clean. It’s an annual job that needs to be done, no question. Yet, when adding up total expenses for in hiring an annual professional carpet cleaner, it really is a frugal decision to have your own quality carpet cleaner. This way, it can be done when needed – because in reality, my carpets should get a deep clean more than annually {proof is right underfoot}.

Hoover recently sent me their Power Scrub Elite Pet Carpet Cleaner, and I quickly realized that this one cleaning machine solves a few problems in my home. Not only saving me from paying for outside service, but I don’t have to completely empty every room in the house for the job to be done. I can complete the task at my leisure, and according to my schedule.

Plus, in the past I had to leave my house for at least 6 hours {with three kids and two pets?}, because it always took forever for the carpets to dry and I didn’t want to undo what I just paid dearly for. That in itself was always something I dreaded. Yet the Hoover Power Scrub Elite Pet Carpet Cleaner has superior quick drying time thanks to its HeatForce™ feature.

I first used my Hoover Power Scrub Elite Pet Carpet Cleaner on the most trafficked area in my home, and a place that I have had to spot-clean, most often with cleaner and a rag – that’s noticeable. Yes, that is a look of guilt on Charlie’s face, that’s mostly is past doing.

I love the deep clean mode which lifts embedded dirt, and then the wash/rinse mode to remove solution residue – and this one area looked amazing in minutes.

Gross. Yet remember I deep clean my carpets annually, so if you’ve done yours less often or perhaps not at all … well, I’ll let you think about that.
