REVIEW: VAX Platinum SmartWash 

By Rachel Ducker

Wage war on dirt, bacteria and odours in the home with the VAX Platinum SmartWash, the UK’s first carpet washer with motion sense technology that kills over 99% of bacteria trapped in your carpet fibres that can cause bad smells.

The clever solution for home carpet washing also outperforms the UK’s leading rental and leaves carpets dry in as little as just one hour.

The next generation motion sense technology in the VAX Platinum SmartWash means that it is effortlessly simple to use. The triggerless design eradicates the need to press and hold down a trigger to deploy solution onto the floor, instead, the intelligent motion sense technology automatically dispenses the correct mix of clean water and solution when you push forward to wash, and dries when you pull back. 

What we thought of the VAX Platinum SmartWash…

The VAX Platinum SmartWash is fairly straightforward to set up. Simply unbox all of the pieces, slot it all together and its good to go. Preparation for your clean is easy, simply fill up the clean tank with clean water and fill up the solution tank with the VAX solution provided. Then plug it in and away you go.

As you push the VAX forward clean water and solution cleans the carpet, as you pull back the VAX collects all of the dirty water and it is enters the dirty tank whilst drying the carpet.

I could not believe the amount of dirt that filled the dirty tank.

I cleaned my rugs and carpets within no time, its a relatively quick process, making it easy to repeat after a few months to keep on top of things.

Stains can be targeted with VAX pre-treatment, so even the toughest marks can be conquered.

Would I recommend it?

Absolutely! This is much more efficient than any carpet steamer I have ever used, and the satisfaction of actually seeing your dirt collected is very rewarding.

Watch my review and how it works here…

Effective cleaning – Coated with an antimicrobial treatment, the advanced FlexForce brush bars are designed especially for SmartWash and have flexible bristles to agitate the carpet and distribute the correct energy deep into the fibres to effectively lift away surface dirt and trodden in stains. 

Hygienic – Using VAX Platinum Antibacterial Solution, the carpet washer kills over 99% of bacteria in your carpets. To ensure your Platinum SmartWash remains hygienic to use time and time again, the cleaning attachments and floorhead have integrated antimicrobial treatment to help prevent growth of bacteria and fungi. 

Easy to manoeuvre – Its low-profile foot makes the Platinum SmartWash easy to effortlessly move under and around furniture. 

Easy to use – No more measuring or wasting solution. Simply tip the solution straight from the bottle into the dedicated tank. Automix technology provides the correct mix of solution and water for best cleaning results. Simply switch on and the motion sense technology detects when you move forwards to wash, and dries when you pull back. When you’ve finished washing, pour any remaining solution back into the bottle for next time. 

Rinse mode – Simply remove the solution tank to use the machine in rinse mode to help extract any residual shampoo. 

Versatile – Not just for floors, VAX’s patented SpinScrub hand tool and 2.5m long hose enable you to remove dirt and odour causing bacteria from stairs and upholstery, pet beds and even from the car. 

Easy to clean – After use, the Platinum SmartWash is quick and easy to clean. With no tools required, unclick the washer visor to give easy access to the two FlexForce brush bars which simply lift out; a quick rinse under a tap and dry and they’re ready to use again. Dirty water is a cinch to deal with too – remove and empty the dirty water tank down the toilet, sink or an external drain, then rinse and replace. Any unused VAX Platinum Antibacterial Solution can be poured back into its container, avoiding waste.
