The set up took a matter of minutes, entailing snapping the top end of the cleaner to the bottom and inserting two bolts. Once completed, I filled the water tank and the cleaning solution tank and went to work!
Once the tanks are filled, the process of cleaning is really quite simple and the carpet cleaner does the majority of the work for you. The carpet cleaner features push button, computerized controls on the front of the unit, and light-up prompts let you know exactly where you are in the cleaning process. From the control panel, you can choose which surface you are planning on cleaning (Carpet or Rug) and this carpet cleaner is smarter than you would think, even letting you know when the dirty water tank is full!
The Hoover Platinum Collection carpet cleaner comes equipped with on board tools including a SpinScrub hand tool, cervice tool and carpet/upholstery tool. These on board tools allow you to clean stairs, upholstery or any other small areas using the attached hose. Oh how I wish I had these with my last couch!
(The Scrubbers in action!)
I have to admit that I am apprehensive of any carpet cleaner. I have tried a few over the years and although a little bit of dirt came out, it certainly wasn’t what you would call… impressive. We typically use professional carpet services (of which doesn’t remove some of the spots and stains) and just used one of these services 4 months ago, so I wasn’t expecting much when I put the Hoover Platinum Collection carpet cleaner to work!
The professional carpet cleaners are now fired!
The Hoover Platinum Collection Carpet Cleaner retails for $399 and can be purchased online at Hoover or at Amazon. Additonally, you’ll need to purchase Hoover’s carpet and upholstery detergent, which will retails for around $20.
