Redefining Heavy Duty: The Vax 6131T 3-in-1 Multivax Dry Vacuum and Carpet Washer Review
As diverse as the market has become, so has the diversity of mess people make on their carpets. The immense variation of lifestyles has ushered in an age wherein stains, spills and dirt can find their way into almost any corner of the house.
In line with this ever-increasing battle against the toughest stains and the nastiest cleaning jobs, cleaning machine manufacturers have competed against each other to create cleaning machines that are said to handle the most difficult of cleaning jobs.
One such machine is the Vax 6131T 3-in-1 Multivax. This device performs as a dry cleaner, vacuum and spill-handler all rolled into one. This unique combination takes out the hassle of having to have three separate machines for each job.
But what separates this piece of cleaning equipment from other models is the fact that it trades delicacy and aesthetics for power. The fact that it runs on 1300 watts says something about what kind of suction power lies behind this orange canister.
To compliment this capacity, it has been equipped with two large canisters that can contain up to 4 litres of water each. One is used for clean water for carpet washing and the other is contains dirty water collected from the cleaning as well as spill vacuuming.
For carpet cleaning, this model comes with a Fibreflow wash tool that has been designed to go into the deepest mends of carpet fabric to take out those hard-to-reach grime, that most conventional vacuums fail to reach.
The tool comes as a detachable head that fixes to the end of a 2.5 meter hose. If used with the extension tools, the machine can reach a total of 18.3 meters to help access those small corners without having to move too much in the way of furniture.
The choice to buy this product is a choice between strength and subtlety. Although both are important, leaning towards one will mainly depend on what kind of mess awaits the carpet cleaner when it is being used.
Most vacuum cleaners and hoovers have been designed for the modern family without much consideration for what a modern family is. This is why most hoovers out in the market lack the power to contain the more complicated and difficult messes. This is where the 6131 T shines the most.
It has the power and the capacity to deal with the stains that most families consider as normal. These messes could include long-forgotten animal fur, ignored milk stains, party accidents and forlorn carpets.
But if the needs demand subtlety, ascetics and delicacy, maybe the vax 6131T may not be the right product. At the end of the day, the choice of hoover really depends on the kind of family and the mess that they make. Ideally, the 6131 T is best for large households that have children and pets and even frequent parties.
These are demanding situations that require a lot of cleaning power. For households that have few people and smaller messes, a bulky and strikingly-colored carpet cleaner may not be the best idea. It might take up too much space and a hassle to move around.
Overall the Vax 6131T may not be The Best Carpet Shampooer in the market, however with all things considered at the price point, you will not find anything in the same league as this model.
