If you are looking for a good carpet cleaner that’s great for cleaning up after pets, then the Hoover Power Scrub Elite Pet Carpet Cleaner might be the right one for you!

Hoover Power Scrub Elite Pet Upright Carpet Cleaner FH50251PC Review

When you take a look at this carpet cleaner, you’ll notice that it looks a lot like an upright vacuum; but a little bigger and a little wider. The reason for this is because this carpet cleaner is modeled off of upright vacuums, and as a result of this, you can use this carpet cleaner just as you would an upright vacuum.

With a weight of 18.5-pounds, this certainly isn’t the most lightweight carpet cleaner, but it’s not the heaviest, either. Instead, it’s a good size and due to the design of this carpet cleaner, as well as it’s layout, moving the carpet cleaner around and using it is quite easy, which leads to a convenient carpet cleaning process.

On the front of this carpet cleaner, near the top, there are two tanks. One of these tanks holds clean water and, if you want to use it, cleaning solution. But, the other tank holds dirty water.

Water is one of the most important elements that this carpet cleaner uses to clean carpets, and the dirty water tank helps keep all of the dirty water stored and away from your floors, as well as away from the clean water.

Underneath the carpet cleaner, there is the Spin-Scrub Brush System. The Spin-Scrub Brush System is an exceptional brushing system that allows this carpet cleaner to thoroughly clean your carpets, and everything that is on them and within them. Right by this brush system, there’s a suction pathway, and a pathway for HeatForce Technology to be utilized.

While using the carpet cleaner and moving it across your carpet, water is sprayed onto the carpet. Then, the Spin-Scrub Brush System spins at 360-degrees, at a quick pace, which allows it to remove the stains that are on the carpet.

These stains could be dirt stains or food stains – among many others – and the Spin-Scrub Brush System uses its brushes to scrub off those stains.

However, the Spin-Scrub Brush System doesn’t just remove stains. Due to the design of the brushes, it also moves into the depths of your carpet and loosens up all of the dirt, dust, and debris that is within the carpet. Water helps to loosen up that gunk, while also making it easier for the stains that are on the surface of the carpet to be scrubbed off.

To ensure that everything is removed from the carpet, there is a suction pathway that is right by the brush system. This suction pathway allows all of the dirt, dust, and debris that’s being dislodged by the brushes to flow straight into the carpet cleaner, where it goes into the tank that holds dirty water. Much of the water that has been used also flows into that tank.

For the water that isn’t sucked back into the carpet cleaner, it’s dried off using HeatForce Technology. HeatForce Technology produces a stream of heat that comes out of a small opening that’s located on the front of the carpet.

As you move the carpet cleaner across your carpet, the heat from this opening is spread along the various areas of your carpet, ensuring that all of the water that’s been used is heated and dried.

What’s really cool about this carpet cleaner is the fact that it comes with an eight-foot carpet cleaning hose that you can use to clean in spaces and areas that the main carpet cleaner can’t reach. These can be carpeted areas that are behind couches or chairs, or even tight corners. This is a very useful tool that gives you some extra functionality.

There is another really nice tool that this carpet cleaner comes with is a pet tool attachment that allows you to remove pet hair and pet stains with far more ease than most other carpet cleaners offer.

When it comes to the flaws of this carpet cleaner, the only genuine flaw is that the design is somewhat clunky, and moving the carpet cleaner around can be a little tricky. But, other than that, this is an exceptional carpet cleaner!

Conclusion

The Hoover Power Scrub Elite Pet Carpet Cleaner is easily one of the best carpet cleaners that you can buy! Due to the excellent features that it offers, as well as its fantastic design, it’s capable of cleaning any carpet with a tremendous amount of ease and efficiency!
