Get spotless carpets in just 20 minutes with Vax Rapide Ultra 2

The UK's best selling floorcare brand Vax is showing mums and dads how easy it is to get spotless carpets in just 20 minutes, with the Rapide Ultra 2 carpet cleaner.

Its deep cleaning, quick drying technologies mean the average front room takes just 20 minutes to wash and is dry enough to walk on again in just an hour or two - that's quicker than the wash and dry cycle on your washing machine!

Vax knows it can be a real challenge keeping on top of the household chores, especially when you've got young children. Cleaning your carpets can seem like yet another mammoth task that you never quite have time to do. It's no real surprise that recent research by Vax showed that over half of UK parents let their kids crawl and play on carpets that are never washed.*

The Rapide Ultra 2 carpet cleaner takes all the hassle out of washing, so you can be confident your carpets look and smell as clean as your clothes, every day. Its flexible hose and wash tool make it easy to clean your stairs, upholstery and even your car seats. For really stubborn spots, there's also a pre-treatment kit to break down dirt and stains before you wash. Watch the demonstration video at to see how it quick and easy it is for yourself.

Why wash your carpets?

We all want a home we can be proud of, but it's not just about how your carpet looks. Even if it's vacuumed daily and looks spotless on the surface, your carpet can still become a breeding ground for dust mites, pollen, bacteria and mould. They get trapped between its fibres and thrive in the warm, humid conditions of our double glazed, centrally heated homes. Regular washing helps keep these unwanted houseguests at bay, so your home is a healthier place for you and your family.

The W90-RU-P Rapide Ultra 2 is available from major retailers for RRP £279.99 and includes a 2 year guarantee. For more information visit or call the UK-based Vax Customer Careline on 0844 412 8455, which is open 7 days a week.

Notes for Editors:*The Vax survey of 1,937 respondents found that while 88% of parents said they let their children play on their carpets, 48% of parents never washed their carpets.
