There are many different machines on the market to keep your rugs clean and looking new, and a Hoover carpet cleaning machine can be useful in maintaining older carpets and keeping them looking like they were just installed.

Most carpet cleaners offer a single inverted "V" extractor to remove water from carpets. This configuration focuses the power from the center out. One of the better Hoover carpet cleaning machine offers a dual inverted "V" extractor to increase the suction power to remove more water faster, allowing quicker drying of the carpets.

The Hoover F7427-900 SteamVac Dual V® Carpet Extractor is available at around $300 and uses a 12 amp motor with six rotating cleaning brushes and utilizes a heated cleaning method to help with deep cleaning. It has a 13 inch cleaning width, one gallon storage tank and automatic rinse to help remove any liquid cleaners used. It is one of three Hoover carpet cleaning machines currently on the market.

The main differences are that the F7222 uses five spinning brushes for an 11 inch cleaning path and the F7452 utilizes six brushes for a 14 inch path. This is 20 percent wider meaning you can steam-clean the carpet 20 percent faster.
