Is the PowerDash right for me?

The lightweight design Hoover PowerDash Pet Compact Carpet Cleaner is super stylish, and with twice as much cleaning power as the nearest competitor, along with its unique HeatForce system for faster carpet drying, it’s the ideal machine to deal with all manner of everyday carpet stains and pet mess in high traffic areas and small spaces.

With a 20 ft., power cable you can conveniently move around, and complete your carpet cleaning tasks without having to stop, and relocate to another power outlet.

And, although we certainly liked this super machine, we did have a couple of issues with it; mainly the fact that the clean water tank is a little on the small size for cleaning any large carpeted areas, so it did require several stops, and trips to the sink for a refill, which could become an issue if you were time-constrained.

The other thing we found was that the PowerDash, was a little on the noisy side, so cleaning the carpets at night or if the family was sleeping it was just not possible.

The Last Word
