Sticky Mud and Belly Laughs

Cleaner Carpets With Vax Dual Power Pro Advance

When it comes to cleaning, I am a bit of a sucker. Not that I am obsessed, as there’s always better things to be doing than housework! I just feel more comfortable when everything is clean and tidy.
We have recently had a new carpet in the bathroom upstairs, but having two little ones can certainly give it a run for its money. With bath times every night and having little boys that regularly miss the toilet and sprinkle every where else! Most probably because they are rushing to get back to a tv programme or they have heard somebody rustling a crisp packet in the other room! You know the drill. So we have been giving our bathroom a new lease of life with the Vax Dual Power Pro Advance carpet cleaner.

 Vax Dual Power Pro Advance Carpet Cleaner


What you get 

X2 250ml Detergent The god of all shampoos! (Smells so fresh)

Pre treatment solution

Accessories bag

Upholstery tool (For those  sticky sweets hiding under the sofa seats)

Spin-scrub hand tool (Making stain removal easy peasy lemon squeezey)

How to guide (Something you should read, but if like me, you are too excited and just get on with it)


Awesome Features

So many to mention here, but here are my favs.

There is no fiddling about mixing the correct amount of cleaning fluid. You just add your water to the tank and pour the detergent into the other opening and the cleaner distributes the right amount needed as you go along, I know, genius isn’t it.


The Spin Scrub attachment – Love this! This is brilliant for removing tougher stains. We had a patch of melted crayon on the carpet. Yes this is true, with two kids we find weirder things than that believe me! The crayons are those ones that you can take in the bath, but little mr left it on the radiator and it melted down into the carpet. I tried scrubbing by hand and removed most of it, but you could still see where it had been. I squirted the solution from the attachment and then scrubbed the area with this amazing gadget and it shifted the lot. It’s fab for getting in hard to reach places where the main cleaner won’t fit.


Dual V Technology extracts the water at super speed, so it takes half the time for tour carpet to dry!



Yep that is filthy dirty! I was gobsmacked with the carpet being fairly new and the fact I’m a little ocd with cleaning. Just goes to show the deep clean this machine gives.

The handy cleaning wand helps you trigger extra solution for those stubborn marks. Don’t worry, I have not turned into a werewolf, that’s my husbands hand there.


The Best Carpet Cleaner I Have Ever Used


You can see its fluffed the pile back up no end and it smells so fresh and clean now.  I would definitely bare the Vax Dual Power Pro Advance in mind if you are looking for a decent carpet cleaner. For just £189.99 I think it’s a steal! I would expect to pay much more for a cleaner that performs as well as this. It’s a massive thumbs up from me.

*We were sent this cleaner in return for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own*

    We have 2 (often muddy) dogs at home and it is a constant battle to keep the carpets clean. Pretty much everything I own is covered in dog hair. I’m quite liking the versatility of this vacuum and the affordability is a big thumbs up too. It seems like it would come in handy in all the post dog walk situations!
