Helping you find the UK’s best carpet cleaner 2016.
You probably rarely notice how over time your carpet becomes darker, dirtier and maybe starts to smell. A standard vacuum cleaner will only get loose dirt and hair out of your carpet but can’t give it a thorough clean.
At this point it’ll be necessary to get the cleaning job done more effectively. You’ll need to buy a carpet cleaner.
But it’s difficult to choose. You could go for a simple bargain and hope for the best, though chances are you’ll get disappointing result. On the other hand there are a couple of expensive devices which simple lack quality and leave you wasting time and money.
Our carpet cleaner review will show you what defines the best carpet cleaner and what you need to look out for. You’ll not only find the best suitable device but also see what other consumers bought and which machine is a real bargain.
In a few short points, here’s what the best carpet cleaner must offer to become a suitable choice for you.
The specifications should make the machine relatively versatile so for example it should have a water tank that holds enough for a cleaning session or not be to bulky to carry around your house.
First we view the two types of carpet cleaners. You can either buy a standard carpet washer or multi-function cleaner.
Standard carpet cleaning machine or full-sized carpet cleaners spray detergent onto your carpet. Hot water activates the detergent on the carpet fibres whilst a wet-vac sucks up the bulk of the water on the floor.
At the end of the procedure you simply empty the dirty water tank and let the carpet dry.
Multi-function or compact cleaners can clean and vacuum your carpets, so a two-in-one device which will give you extra storage space.
“Multifunction cleaners are rarely as powerful as stand-alone vacuum cleaners.”
Handheld Carpet Cleaners
Handheld Carpet cleaners are useful for hard spots that are hard to get at (for example in the car) or simply an emergency solution to small spills and stains.

They have the looks of ghostbuster equipment and so far only a few brands, including Bissell, currently offer one. Our carpet cleaner review mainly focuses on the upright machines as they cover all your cleaning needs.
This is the detergent which is mixed into the carpet cleaners water tank. The best carpet washers will offer their own brand of carpet shampoo which is the ideal mixture for that machine.
Though there are also other individual brands selling either a universal detergent or carpet cleaner shampoo which is rubbed in to the carpet and then simply sucked out along with the dirt via your vacuum cleaner.
The best carpet shampooer will…
We recommend that you stick to the same brand of shampoo the carpet cleaning machine provides. Along with the Standard shampoo you’ll often also be offered special solutions for pet hair or allergies. The UK’s best and favourite carpet shampoos come from Dirtbusters or Pro Kleen.
The best carpet washers will come with some very useful features which will enhance the possibilities during cleaning and make the job much easier for you.
|Auto Mix||Some carpet cleaners mix the water and detergent automatically, saving you time.|
|Crevice Tool||Cleans in narrow spaces and tight corners.|
|Detergent Spray||Used to pre-treat tough stains before washing.|
|Dry Vacuum||A feature of multi-function cleaners, to pick up debris before washing.|
|Handheld Brush||For cleaning stairs, upholstery and other carpeted surfaces.||Safety Lock Lid||Most juicers have a safety lock lid. This means the juicer won’t work unless the lid is clicked into place securely.||Tank Shut-Off||Some cleaners feature a sensor-operated cut off that stops an extractor’s suction when the tank storing dirty solution is full.|
|Turbo Tool||A handheld rotating brush for intensive deep-clean|
|Water Tank Heater||To increase the effectiveness of washing by keeping the water warm.|
You’ll find many services at your local supermarket, home centre or online, Rug Doctor for example, that will offer commercial carpet washing machines for 24 to 48 hours for around 20-40£.
These are big bulky devices, which provide professional carpet cleaning. Although the best carpet cleaning machines are already as good or even better than commercial carpet washers you may consider this an option but check the points below for what to look out for.

For a high quality product and reliable functionality we advise you to search for the UK’s best carpet cleaner brands online which we have summed up here:
Bissell and VAX are the UK’s best suppliers of home carpet cleaning machines along with Rug Doctor when it comes to commercial use. Multi-function devices often come from Numatic and we recommend these if you’re facing only slight dirt on your carpets. After washing with some one of the best full size carpet washers though, you’ll be surprised by how much dirt has come out and be amazed by the fresh and clean result.
