Hoover F7452-900 MaxExtract Steam Vac


Avg. consumer rating = 73/100 The Hoover MaxExtract All-Terrain Carpet Cleaner garners many great ratings from consumers but also gets almost as many poor ratings. Those that like it say it is probably one the best steam cleaners available and that it...

Strong suction- Floors dry quite quickly after use- leaves both carpet and bare floors very clean- cleaning solution is in a separate container- separate clean and dirty water tanks- clean water rinse button is a nice feature

some owners report leaking around water tanks- heavy- shaft that drives the brushes is plastic and there are reports of it breaking

The Hoover F7452-900 is powered by a 12 amp motor and is capable of cleaning both carpet and hard surfaces - carpet, hardwood, tile, upholstery (thus the terminology “All-Terrain” in the name). It has a 13 inch wide removable cleaning nozzle and is...

Not As Good As Expected


Easy to use... Just pull it forth and back pressing the trigger form time to time. Easy to clean up after washing: disassembling is intuitive and quite simple

It is a bit bulky in use. Sometime suction is not as appropriate as you may expect it, may leave tiled floor wet and slippery

Works Great


The cleaner works great on our carpet. I had a stain that was there for over a year and I have tried to clean it many times but never was able to get rid of it. This SteamVac did the trick. I was able to use the steam and cleaner to eliminate the stain

The only con is it does not suck up enough water to make the carpet dry in 2 hours. Takes up to about 6 hours to fully dry ; Not really a con since the steam causes the humidity

Got my carpet clean, so I'm happy


I thought that I'd have to replace the carpet in my living room until I got this cleaner. I used it once and it looks like I have new carpet and my carpet is at least 10 years old. I'm happy

I dont personally like the attachment caddy, I wish it were fixed to the cleaner but oh well

Cleans well, must be careful of plastic parts


This unit was delivered within days of order. It appears to clean like crazy from the amount of sand, dirt and crude in the dirty water tank. Looks like you need to be very careful handling the unit because of the light weight plastic parts used for...

Great carpet cleaner


Had a Hoover carpet cleaner for 15years, came time to replace. Liked the agitator brushes on Hoover in general, and on this model in particular. Brushes are stiffer and seem like they would work better. Some people complained about not sucking up...

Agitator brushes work well, suction picks up all the water

Plastic parts seem fragile, but they all have this
