So, I've been wanting to get a steamer for cleaning carpets and leather mostly as well as be able to use it around the house for cleaning tile/grout and bathrooms and all that good stuff. I have been researching and researching and I am totally confused.
I'm not looking for the $100 McCulleg or Warner steamer, I'm looking for a quality, moderate duty one. I'm kinda torn between the VX5000 which seems to be the decent entry level for detailing and the VAPOR STEAM VC-4000C. The VX is $800 and the VC is $1095. What is the difference? Does the VX work well or would I be kicking my self for not getting the VC?
I have buyers remorse a lot and have learned that its better to buy the quality. For $300 more would I be better suited? I do do detailing as a profession and have been doing it for a long time without steam, but it seems like it would be beneficial to step up to steam. It says on the VC that you can wash a car with it, but I'm kinda hard pressed to believe that. What is the difference between "dry steam" and the VX? Is continous refill important?
Does anyone know about these units? Are you happy with what you have and does it get the job done? I feel really lost when it comes to this and could REALLY use some input.
I can't justify the Dupray steamer so thats off the table btw.
Thanks everyone for your input!
