Homeowners with pets and kids, or even those who simply host a party now and then, often swear by their Hoover steam vacs. Instead of calling the carpet cleaning company, they can pull their steam vac from the closet and vacuum up a stain before it even has time to set. It even beats the expensive steam cleaners that you can rent, both in ease of use (way lighter and easier to move around) and in cleaning power.
There are a variety of Hoover steam vac models to choose from. From lighter weight portable options to more solid and heavier vacuums, there is surely one for every need.
