I have had my Kirby G5 upright vacuum cleaner since the 90’s. I had never used the shampooer in my current home (7 years old), which has only one carpeted room.
The carpet is white and I have two large dogs. We have been planning to replace the carpet after one of my dogs was sick all over it a month ago (not just vomit). Once I cleaned the stains as best I could, we had “clean spots”.
Yesterday I decided it couldn’t hurt to try and use the Kirby G5 shampooer to clean it. One hour later, my carpet looks new. Everything is out of the fibers and the shampoo smells clean not perfumed.
This morning I vacuumed it and I am amazed, it did a better job than both the DryChem guys and the professional steam cleaning we had done. A 12 year old vacuum, never serviced, and shampoo from 7 years ago, impressed the daylights out of me. I recommend the Kirby G5 upright vacuum, 10 stars.
We own a two story house and I use it upstairs and down, it is a little heavy but even on the wood floors it works better than the canister we purchased for the upstairs. We vacuum the mattresses with it, as well as the furniture, we use it to blow up the air mattress, pool floats and clean the SUV with it.
I think I will be using the sofa cleaning attachments on the old sofa. We spent $500.00 on it new. They are definitely negotiable.
