Steam Cleaners

Today's post is a little different.

The wife and I are looking into buying a steam cleaner to help keep our apartment cleaner. We vacuum quite a bit, but are considering adding this item to keep our carpet in better shape.

Here are the models that we are looking at currently:

Hoover F7411-900

Hoover F5914-900

Both of these are lower cost cleaners, and we are not expecting ridiculous results. We would just like to reduce the amount of dirt/dust that we have inside. My wife says our carpet looks pretty darn good, and I have  to agree based on a completely professional and scientific cross section quick and dirty review of carpets we have been witness to.

Why would we want a steam cleaner if we rent?

My argument is we will have a house someday, and I have been wanting to get the carpet professionally cleaned anyways, so why not buy our own. The cost will be less than even one professional job, and while the results may not be, I am relatively confident we will be happy. In addition, we will be able to utilize the steam cleaner for many years, "saving" additional money with each use. We should also be able to recover more of our security deposit for our apartment.

What  do you think of the idea?

  1. I agree. If you KNOW one day you will utilize a _____, and if you find that _____ at an amazing price, you go for it!

    Plus, you may get part of your rental deposit back if you can adequately clean spills as they occur.
