Hoover built the SteamVac Spin Scrub TurboPower carpet cleaner to offer an economical, yet functional, option to consumers. The unit manages 12 AMPs of power that move five rotating brushes that offer a deep down clean on almost any type of carpeting. The SteamVac Spin Scrub is equipped with two separate water tanks and a quick release latch to remove them for water refills and emptying. The easy use latch is a great design choice that can reduce the amount of time needed to prep the machine for another run.
Hoover backs its SteamVac Spin Scrub carpet cleaner with a one year limited warranty. The Clean Surge and direct heat features help remove stains in heavily trafficked areas in the home. A Spin Scrub powered hand tool is included to make cleaning stairs and upholstery much easier without lifting the entire carpet cleaner.
The SteamVac Spin Scrub carpet cleaner can handle three vital steps to remove stains and floor debris. First it applies hot water and cleaning solution to soak stains, then it scrubs carpet fibers and finally rinses with clean water. The SteamVac Spin Scrub takes hot air generated by the motor and blows it onto carpeting to add an element of heat to the cleaning process. It does not heat the water in the tank, but this design is a step up from carpet cleaners that offer no heating function at all.
