I used it on my living carpet and it was amazing! It took out all the stains and made the carpet bright! Our living room carpet takes a beating daily with our two toddlers. They spill, they get crayon on it and people walk through it with shoes on. I am very pleased with this product and can't wait to use it on the other carpets in my house and on our hardwood. Anyone who says this isn't for carpets and that it doesn't clean well must not be doing something right. You need to make sure to take your time and go over the same spot 3-4 times just like the directions tell you to. This isn't a vacuum cleaner you can't go over it once and expect it to look clean.
I highly recommend this product and all the other shark products I have.
I LOVE this. Though I would not use it on my wood floors when they are at their dirtiest (as the vac option would just not cut it), I use the steam and vac on my floors when the floors are somewhat in need of vacuuming and need a mopping. What a time saver to vac and mop at the same time! I love that the wood floors are not getting a soaking but it leaves them shining with no streaks. No more buying chemicals either! I do agree it is hard to push and pull, but what's wrong with vacuuming, mopping, and getting a little workout all in one!
