I first bought a Hoover SteamVac because I have a dog, and sometimes the dog… does things… to the carpet. Ahem. But then when I actually use said SteamVac, it’s loud, and that scares her, which can lead to other atrocities against said carpet.
It’s a vicious cycle. And yet, here I am. (Note to self: Win lottery, finish putting hardwoods in the rest of the house.)
Anyway! I bought my SteamVac on an Amazon Lightning Deal in December for $76, which was a steal. I haven’t seen a price even close, since then. The one I bought is currently $140 at Amazon with an available 20% off coupon, making it $112, which isn’t bad. Alternatively, today at Best Buy it’s just $100 shipped.
Not the absolute-cheapest-ever, but a decent price on a highly-rated machine.
