Our Vax Rapide Ultra 2 W90-RU-P Vacuum Review

We’ve been raving to our friends about the Rapide Ultra series of carpet washer from Vax, simply as they offer incredible performance and remove a huge (and slightly disturbing!) amount of dirt from your carpet.  The Vax W90-RU-P Rapide Ultra 2 is powered by a 1000w motor, they soak the carpet with a combination of water and cleaning fluid, which is then sucked back up, leaving your carpet clean and looking like new.

Over the years we’ve tried Vax carpet washers on a variety of carpets in a range of conditions, and without fail they have always impressed.  For best results, we use our vacuum cleaner first to remove the larger dirt and dust particles, and then use the carpet washer to remove the ingrained stains and marks that a regular vacuum cleaner won’t touch.

Put simply, the W90-RU-P is very well built, simple to operate, and will save you money in the long run by extending the life of your carpets.  The handle is comfortable to hold, and the 8m power cord means it can be used practically anywhere in the house.  In addition, the supplied Vax wash tool enables you to clean furniture and stairs, giving a great deal of versatility to this carpet washer.  We simply can’t recommend it enough.
