  • The brushes are very easy to manage and when they are on they are very strong indeed!
  • Motor matches the power of the brushes, ensuring that this offers a deep, lasting cleanse.
  • Lack of belts means less money spent on maintenance, with durable equipment and accessories too.
  • 8ft hose ensures you can get up and down the stairs without too much stress or strain.
  • 3-speed brush control means you can use this to help lift up anything in general.


  • Not great for pet hairs, though; seems to struggle to get them to un-stick.
  • When the tank is filled it can be very heavy to lift; best to empty downstairs first if you can. The dirty water tank is very small, too, so empty trips are common.
  • Very noisy!


The general take on Hoover F5914900 Carpet Cleaner SteamVac is a very impressive piece of kit that follows the general Hoover standard. While it might lack consistency at times because of the great power but small stamina, it’s a very effective steamvac for those who are in the market for one. Given its size and bulk, though, make sure you can handle it up and down the stairs before you try!


As a good piece of kit, this is a rather simple one to go for when you are looking for a high-class piece of equipment. However, it’s bulk and its hardness to store away means that some people might not love this quite as much as others do.
