Customer Reviews

Customers who have purchased the Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe carpet washer fh50150 appreciate how light and easy to use the machine really is. However, for a small minority of users, this was a bit of a problem. The plastic used in the carpet washers construction, they feel, is rather flimsy and is a little too flexible. However, most residential carpet cleaners sold in the United States are manufactured in a similar way and are constructed with very similar materials, so this complaint should be considered in the broader context and not exclusively as an issue with Hoover carpet cleaners alone.


Lightweight plastic is what keeps the price so low, however, and many appliances manufactured today are constructed of similar materials. There are plenty of options for spending more money, but most users feel that the Power Scrub Deluxe from Hoover, gets the job done and is priced right, especially with the inclusion of extra tools. The benefits of owning a carpet washer are many and most customers are appreciative of the fact that they do not have to spend money on expensive professional carpet cleaning. Owning a carpet washer, like the Hoover Power Scrub Deluxe, also eliminates that headaches involved with renting carpet cleaning machines.
