Price low, last seen december 2016, for this best of the best carpet cleaner. This is a no brainer.
---
Good old Hover Steam vac base model may not clean as well (not sure as one hover is rated over the BGM); but it's under $80 before discounts and much lighter to move. Plus it gets up against the wall better, it's easier to store and go up and down stairs, like for car cleaning. Nice attachments, long hose and it beats small no-wheel pricer units. -NeoSlick

Tips: 1. Vacuum!!! New bag, low set, two directions very thoroughly. Stops clogging and fluffs. Finish in the direction that make your carpet stand up the tallest. Use a mid-size plastic comb vigorously on small badly matted areas. Carpet rake on larger matted areas.
2. 1oz (or *half* that for concentrated) Laundry liq.(like He) + 2oz Awesome cleaner PER GALLON. Don't use powder anything. ...
3. PETS/Urine? Use 3% Hydrogen Peroxide (Oxy=Pet) for large pet areas; you should spot treat instead. Test a hidden spot first; for carpet color stability on weird carpet. Awesome brand pet sprayer carpet cleaner/oxy is $1 for the spray bottle or mix some.
4. Some do a final rinse only pass with just one cup WHITE vinegar(rinse agent) in 1 gallon tank of hot tub water. Light (16:1) smell evaporates completely and fast. MAY not be completely necessary to do the rinse pass; using the limited soaping(recipe above). "Experts" say rinse; to avoid dirt attraction. Vinegar rinse mix may prevent mold and allergens. Do not combine detergent cleaning and vinegar rinsing in one go.
Reliable advice: http://www.bhg.com/home-improveme...an-carpet/
5. Maintenance: Clean up by suctioning clean water! Clean brushes. Tend to your seals for max suction. Never leave solutions in machine.
6. Stubborn old carpet smells (left otherwise) like old urine? Use Baking Soda *dry*, deep brushed-in and leave it for DAYS! Then just vac.
Dollar Tree has cheap (nice) scented A&H Soda and Awesome cleaner concentrate. $1ea
7. You can boost with hotter heated water but don't over do it with boiling. Special cases. Don't melt your carpet. LOL.
8. Pre-treat concentrate, per stain type (deepest is potentially old urine. Use peroxide dilute and good suction).
9. Use as little wetting (soap pass) as possible. Use steady drying passeS for quick drying.
10. Old and "unclean-able" set-in brownish stains (left) can be ironed out with Peroxide (3% spray) and clean big old white towel (rotated) over for the stain 10 seconds. Repeat numerous times. Use gloves or you'll get white peroxide "burns".
11. Holes can be patched with spare carpet.
12. Whitened "bleached" spots can be color (level/hue/tone) matched with hair color(even coffee); but that's tricky color matching.
Awesome cleaner is basically Propylene Glycol, cheaper than spit ($1), works mixed with a far less expensive, good liquid laundry cleaner (Tide cleaning?) and for a lot of folks. The stores carpet machine cleaning solution, even cheapest found on-sale, most concentrated and lowest per mixed gallon cost (like A&H least evil) are a huge rip-off. Save a lot! Don't try just anything and rinse your machine out well (just suction clean water) when done. In a flat bottom EMPTY tub and pour a thin small amount of water until clean; never deep!

This currently on Amazon for $285 + tax. Shipping is free with prime.

I had a camelcamelcamel alert setup on this one as I am moving mid of May & needed to clean the carpets in the new house plus carpets in the current apartment.This one is the best & rents out for about $35 a day.
Best in this class best on mutiple reviews on youtube with video proof. Must have for people with kids and/or pets.
One of the youtube video suggests buying Zep High-Traffic Carpet Cleaner rather than Bissell's which is lot costlier.

Also, you may want to buy 3 yr warranty from Amazon itself as it may cost more buying from squaretrade directly?? (not sure on this but when I bought from Amazon it costd me $30 while Square trade directly asks for $99 - i may be missing something

Bought this two years ago on BF on amazon a little cheaper. Hands down the best, has paid for itself 10 fold so far. Have nothing bad to say about it. I call it the Green Machine. ;-)

It's amazing. I have 2 dogs and 1 cat so there can be some odd things that show up on the carpets. This is amazing but it is heavy.

Bought this model a couple years ago on SD at this price. We use it a couple times a month and works well, no complaints here. piece of advice... If you get one, don't forget (or tell relative who borrows it) to dump and rinse dirty water container after each use. The dirty water container seals really well...until you use and dump the water the next time!

In my experience the upholstery cleaner works well. We use it to clean our vehicle's carpets and couches' fabric... no complaints here.

I have the Rug Doctor but my son has been using at his home. Now he can keep it there. Great price. I'm looking forward to using this.
