SteamVac Results: Very Good and Weekend Blog Roundup

This article was written by in Link Sharing. Add a comment.

Earlier today, I put the Hoover SteamVac I purchased last week to the test.

The SteamVac required assembly, but the instructions were straightforward. The parts are mostly plastic and they had a “cheap” feel, but when the SteamVac was assembled, the construction was lightweight and easy enough to move across the carpet, even with full tanks.

I started with the dining room, one of the rooms with the lowest foot traffic in the apartment. The receiving tank was full of water by the time I was about 67% finished with the first room. As I removed the tank and dumped its contents, I was amazed at the amount of dirty water. After finishing the dining room, I progressed to the higher-traffic living room.

The manual says that the carpets will dry within six hours after cleaning, but I found that the carpet was mostly dry within as few as three hours.

Cleaning is a therapeutic activity. It actually feels good to get something really clean. I just don’t particularly like the process.

Now, here are some articles I’ve enjoyed lately.

First, check out the latest Carnival of Personal Finance, hosted by Mrs. Micah. She’s chosen a Buffy the Vampire Slayer theme.
