REVIEW: Britex Carpet Cleaning Machine Cleans Up PLUS Win One to Keep

With school holidays and Christmas upon us, our homes are bound to take a bit of a beating, especially our carpets.

Refresh your house for the new year with Britex’s Carpet Cleaning Machine, the easy way to give your carpets a spring clean without the need to call in a professional.

We recently invited three mums to test out the machine and they were floored by the results! Come and see the Britex Carpet Cleaning Machine in action… and win one for yourself!

Mess happens. Especially if you have kids. No matter how many times a week you vacuum or how quick you are to dab at a stain, your carpets and couches are still going to need a bit of extra TLC. Many mums, like me, just ignore the problem and hope it goes away on its own,(or that it gets so bad their partner will eventually do something about it). Others hire a professional to come do it for them, but this can be quite costly.

There is another option. And it’s a fraction of the cost of a professional, gets the job done just as well, and you can do it yourself!

‘It’s a great price and gets the job done’ – Jenine

Britex Carpet Cleaning Machine is your go-to for DIY steam cleaning, It’s won a heap of awards and was recently ranked the number one carpet cleaner in Choice Magazine 2017.

For our three reviewers, Shelley, Jenine and Becca, Britex lived up to the expectation.

Here’s what our three mums had to say:

“Seeing the dirty water and gunk in the return barrel, you can tell it cleaned deeply. The carpet has returned to its previous softness and colour.” – Shelley

“The instructions on the machine were very clear and easy to follow. It’s a great price and gets the job done.” – Jenine

“I would recommend the Britex to anyone. It’s easy to use and very effective. All the steps are there to follow and the machine was easy to navigate around the house and nozzle was easy to get into corners and under furniture.” – Becca

Britex carpet cleaning machine review

The compact size makes it easy to manoeuvre around and the powerful suction gets rid of the excess dirt, grime, dust, dander and allergens that you often don’t even realise are in your carpets. The cleaner works a treat to get deep into those carpet fibres and fabric furnishings.  Plus, it only takes five hours (tops!) to dry! 

“I would recommend this product to anyone.” – Becca

    Im pretty bad with cleaning my carpets thoroughly, I give them a good vacuum of course, but really only deep clean them when I notice the carpet is starting to crunch under foot or in a panic when we are somehow nominated to have Christmas lunch at our house! Would love to have a britax on hand to eradicate my somewhat sticky, stained, crunchy carpet for good!

  3. Avatar of Jocelyn

    I vacuum the carpet regularly and I try to maintain a routine that works for me. But after a couple of months I don’t have the clean feeling and that’s when I do a really deep clean and this takes off all the yucky stuff that has been sitting deep in the carpet.

    Splattered yoghurt over the carpet thanks to Miss 2 is generally my starting point, let alone all the other unmentionable marks and stains (unmentionable because I actually have no idea what food group and/or bodily discharge it would be! – yep I said it! #parentlife). But what really excites me at the chance of winning my own Britex Carpet Cleaning Machine is the thought of getting a deep clean into my couch. With another stain spreading child on the way, I know I will spend a lot of time on the couch in the early days of feeding, and would really love knowing it is a fresh and clean space to enjoy 🙂

    I have 6 kids so cleaning the carpets every month is a must. They always end up looking and feeling dirty all the all time. Especially the kids rooms with all the slime and sticky stuff they like to play with. Not to mention the younger kids like to take a pen to them!

    Having a child in our care with numerous chronic health issues resulting in a very poor immune system, I am vigilant on cleaning. Carpets however are so hard as vacuming really only scratches the surface…Being able to do deep cleans would be brilliant, peace of mind knowing that carpets and upholstery are as fresh and clean as possible.

    Pets are a big reason as is normal walked in dirt. But a huge reason why I want our Carpets cleaned regularly is for overall health of my Family. Dust, germs, bacteria etc settle into the fibres which isn’t very nice. Also keeps things smelling & looking fresher while prolonging the life of the Carpet. We also have Fabric Couches which are forever having drinks or foods dropped on them so they have to be cleaned & maintained. Having them done professionally is great if you get someone who does a good job & also if you can afford it. guaranteed ours all need to be cleaned when we can least afford it so they get worse while waiting to be able to pay for it.

    To be honest, we have been in our house 7 years and never deep cleaned the carpets. We vacuum a couple of times a week, but now that my son is 2 and taking over the house, smearing his sticky fingers everywhere, we have been seriously thinking it might be time we did. The lounge however, could do with a deep clean weekly.

    Being honest, we haven’t deep cleaned our carpets in 8 years and it really needs to be done! With pets, a teenager and a preschooler it is in desperate need to be done.

    My home is covered with carpets that have been originally laid nearly 40 yrs ago. Until a few years ago I have had a professional carpet cleaner vacuum and steam my carpets. Our finances dont allow me to hire a cleaner anymore. The best I do is run a clean mop over the carpets for a refresh, but alas they are still looking worn and shabby. Having six daughters and now their families come for visits, the carpets are not my pride and joy anymore. To win this wonderful Britex Cleaning Machine would make Christmas very special this year.

And the Britax Cleaning products make everything smell amazing and so clean & fresh!

    No matter how hard I try my 4 boys seem to just make the carpet messy, between the pouring activities courtesy of Mr 4 and just by walking on it Mr 15. I find it hard to get in a professional as we we don’t have enough space storage for all six of us so we have a lot of ‘treasures’ on display. I usually just end up hiring a machine and cleaning the visually messy areas of the carpet. If I had my own machine I could plan the clean in my time a lot more efficiently.

    Key triggers are sneezing and allergies. I have a daughter extremely sensitive to changes in weather, climate and excess dust. Living rural and on a dirt road it is important to keep the carpets cleaned. An almost impossible task when living with so much dust. Finding a cleaner that will do the same job as a professional but cost 1/3 of the price would be a god send and mean that the carpets can be done more often.

    My cats are indoor cats and I hate to admit it but sometimes I can smell a cat odor in my halway where I have carpet. I really hope they havent been naughty but the Britex Carpet Cleaner would fix that.
    I own a suede lounge suit and havent cleaned it since I bought it 2 years ago.
    And, I own a soft outdoor setting where the dog tends to sleep. She is timid can sometimes piddle wherever she is sitting = the Britex Cleaner will bring my lounges back to life again!

    The appearance of my carpets is definitely the trigger for getting them cleaned! Whilst I don’t mind a little scribble on the walls or a few weeds in the garden, a grotty carpet just looks yuck and unhygienic. With three young boys, I find it so hard to keep the carpet clean. Blood noses, spilled drinks, remnants of gastro and mooshed cookies aren’t great for carpet. With a Britex carpet cleaning machine, my carpets will look fantastic and there won’t be any more rearranging furniture and rugs to hide those stains!

    We always hire a machine at least once a year. But usually twice. What prompts us is usually me upset at the tenth time cleaning up sick or pet stains. I have hired a machine in the middle of the night after a sick child has done a number on the floor. I have used a neighbours home carpet cleaner before and it really just wet my carpet. We love the britex machines because they really get down deep and clean the carpet properly. Plus I love the smell from the britex products when we are finished. It just smells clean. Love it.

I tend to find food crumbs in a trail as if they’ve left it there on purpose to find their way back to the kitchen. I have small stains from their creative artwork they’ve drawn for me but why I’d really love this vaccum is that I know it’s powerful, it’ll leave that fresh carpet smell and it’s deep cleaning would make my white carpet looking brand new.

    My Father gave us the master bedroom suite, and bedhead which is covered in a beautiful blue crushed velvet. It also has a matching set of curtains that enclose the lounge room off as its open plan, to help keep hot or cold air in, but being made of a thick heavy velvet, they seem to be a magnet for dust and especially dog hair as our dog likes to rub herself along them! They’re big and heavy and cost a small fortune to clean!
    Also having asthma, and dust mite allergies in our household the Britex system would get a complete and through work out between the bedroom suite, the curtains, the carpets, lounge, beds and even the car seats (because instead of me tossing some cookies to the dog, the dog decided to toss her cookies up all over the front passenger seat!
    Plus from the amazing results of the photos above, the Britex cleaner would save us a tonne of money each year that could be spent on the family. Thanks Britex & Mum Central!

    Our family of four moved into my mother’s house to look after her after my father passed away earlier this year. We had to leave our own home and move into mum’s so we could care for her and her home. My mum’s carpets are old, dirty and a bit smelly as she has little dogs that keep having little accidents, so I am constantly trying to get them to look clean. That is no easy task. I use a handheld cleaner when her dogs have a little accident but now the carpets look patchy.
    It is definitely a job for a good britex machine that gets the job done.

    I find myself steam cleaning my carpets frantically when I’m expecting a visit from my mother the “Queen of Clean” or I start to have so many rugs and mats scattered around to hide stains and spills that they start talking to the carpet saying, “Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!”

    My boy has got to be the messiest eater in the world. Even with vacuuming regularly, it still gets to the stage where I simply can’t stand the look of the stains on the carpet anymore and have to do a deeper clean. I reckon your nifty machine would make my life a lot easier!

    My daughter. She has dust & other allergies that have her waking up congested, coughing, sniffing. She ends up sick with sinus infections like she is now. If I wasn’t renting, I would pull up the carpets. As a single parent I can’t afford to wash the carpets as often as I’d like. Owning a Brita cleaner everything would be done often. 3 bedrooms, hall & stairs in this townhouse. The mattresses. The couch. The car. Everything that would help my daughter. And me, the dust gets me sneezing when cleaning & I’ve asthma.
    Thank you Brita & Mum Central!

    With 5 Grandbabies I would love my carpets to be cleaned more regularly than I can afford. There’s always some messy spills or pet accidents. This appeals to me because firstly it has a good reputation and also that it is easy to manoeuvre. I have purchased a cleaner in the past but it never did the job properly and it soon broke. Would be awesome to let the little ones walk and crawl freely on a clean fresh carpet.

From my husband rushing in with muddy boots, (no nagging will stop him!), to kids running in and out, the border collie joining the melee plus a long haired cat that not only sheds, but likes to bring rabbits and rats to disembowel and leave me to clean up, (seriously, sometimes I wake up in the morning to what looks like a murder scene!), not to mention the over-all dust from the farm…….well, – if they’re not key triggers, I don’t know what are. I like to keep the carpets clean and smelling fresh but it’s an ever ending losing battle.

But every so often when I’m wrestling on the floor with my 3y old or watching my 11m old commando crawl her way around the floor, I stop and notice the carpets, and I do that internal cringe we all do and think to myself, where’s my carpet cleaning fairy godmother when I need her!

    The main trigger for me to clean my carpet is for hygiene and knowing what nasties get trapped in the carpet.

    I try to keep the house clean but school holidays is always harder. Usually when someone’s coming I tell everyone to clean up

  342. Avatar of Jo

    For me I’m triggered by “what lies beneath”. We have dark carpet that shows every little crumb or piece of fluff and if you go by the assumption that there’s usually more dirt below what you can see, whenever I see a build up of crumbs or fluff I know that its time to clean the carpets again

    When you see the durt, marks and wear on the carpet it prompts me to clean it. Also having a child with asthma carpwts need to be ckeaned more often.

    For me it’s visual and smell, with kids and dogs the carpets get messy I would love to be able to clean them on a regular basis so they look and smell clean.

    With my 2 Grandchildren here weekly, my carpets, and upholstery suffer from “Toddler Syndrome” ! How I wish I could thoroughly clean them ( Not the children !! ) regularly without having to either hire a machine, or pay for an expensive carpet cleaning company to do it.

    I have 3 kids so my carpets get very grubby! My 3 year old sometimes doesn’t make it to the toilet in time so carpets need cleaning. I’m a neat freak so like everything to be very clean and fresh.

    My carpet needs a spring clean just from normal wear and also having a cat and grandkids takes it’s toll, having my own cleaner would be great as I could clean at my leisure.

    Rental inspections, they are every 4 months and we have 4 kids. Even if it doesn’t look dirty it’s still amazing how much crap comes out when you give it a decent carpet clean.

    Son has always had allergies, asthma so dust mites are our enemy. So cleaning the carpet is a must but also tough to always have the money when budgeting.

    Removing dustmite allergens from the carpet is very important for me to thoroughly clean the carpet for my children to have the best air quality and breathable space available to them because they are allergic to dust itself and grass which are risks to their health. Thank you.

    Plain and simply it is ‘everyday life’ – I have three kids and a cat! We pulled the old carpet up and replaced it with beautiful industrial strength carpet that is incredibly soft to walk on but it is a constant battle keeping it clean. I can put up with some household mess but never a dirty floor/carpet.

    The triggers to make me clean my home,
    Is normally a call received on my phone.
    The inlaws coming for an unexpected stop,
    Certainly puts me into a cleaning frenzy that’s over the top.
    I typically keep a tidy home,
    But the dust and floor have a mind of their own.
    No one stops by when it’s fresh and clean,
    Waiting until it’s at its worst it’d seem.
    A quick whip around and we’re soon good again,
    Honestly drives me round the bend.
    An in depth clean I’d to do,
    Admittedly my carpets are well overdue.
    This awesome prize we’d love to win,
    To let some late spring cleaning begin.

    I vacuum weekly however my key prompts for a deep clean are visual stains and when allergies flare up especially stuffy sinuses. With a preschooler and toddler who love floor play, clean carpets are a must!

  372. Avatar of Bronwen S

    I would usually say visually seeing stains, but we have new carpet, and I’d love to keep it properly clean for as long as possible, so at least every six months would be great. Without one of these I’m pretty sure I’m delusional seeing as I have three small kids and a vomiting cat!

    Our carpet is relatively new but two grubby little boys sure take their toll. We are planning to list our house for sale in the new year and a deep clean from a Britex Carpet Cleaner is just what we need to bring back that clean, fresh look and feel.

    I have 3 large dogs and a puppy and my carpets and rugs are always filthy, especially in winter! We have a dust bowl back yard with no lawn due to the dogs severe allergies. So if the dust is not blowing in,; it’s being trudged in by filthy paws. With a new puppy there’s pee stains everywhere! I do my best to sponge them clean but the smell and stain lingers. I won’t even go there with the number two’s…lol. I’m at the stage where I’m too embarassed to have visitors! The results speak for themselves for the Britex so I know it will clean my carpets like a dream. No more doggy smells, no more hair and certainly no more dirt or filth 🙂

    What prompts me to clean my carpet?
    Well my own sanity! Another reason is when people are coming over. I’m really really time poor. My carpets need more than just a vacuum. We live on property and even though we don’t wear shoes in the house there is so much dust that gets in etc. I have 2 little ones. To get in a carpet cleaner would almost require me to move the world! (ie all the stuff). I l just don’t have the time so if l had a britax carpet cleaner l can move things and do it room by room in my own time!

    My carpet gets filthy from my cat. He is 7 years old and always been furry as he’s part Ragdoll…but this year, for some reason, he has just sprouted fur….he literally looks like a walking mop. He leaves fur wherever he goes. He also has been doing so many vomits of hairballs and every time he goes to his litter, he gets the stones caught in his paws, and tracks them all throughout the house. My vacuum does nothing…this would be amazing. I would love to show off my house with spotless, fresh carpets.

    Because we have a wooden floor, we just have a few rugs that we usually take outside and clean, which can be a bit of a pain. With this great Breitex cleaner it would be so much easier and we could also clean the fabric on our furniture as well.

    Sadly, one of our family cats, Saff, is suffering from dementia and an undiagnosed gastric condition. Consequently she forgets where to go to the toilet (used to be outside in the garden) and so she goes inside wherever she is at the time. And our house is carpeted (apart from kitchen and bathroom) throughout. This is a living nightmare because Saff goes at least 10 times a day and believe me we have newspaper on the floor all over the house but Saff doesn’t always go on the paper. The carpet is being very generous in allowing Saff to use it as a litter tray. I, however, have become what feels like a full-time spot carpet cleaner. To answer the question -my 16 year old cat Saff is the trigger to “clean” my carpets. Oh, and did I mention that Saff also vomits as well due to her gastro complaint which adds to the chronic diarrhea? After 3 kids, can say this is worse because we can’t toilet train her due to the dementia but she’s a loved member of the family and so we support and love her even when she doesn’t know what she’s doing. It’s exhausting.

    Hi #Mum Central, my not so new carpets & couches would absolutely love a good, deep clean from the amazing #Britex Carpet Cleaning Machine!
    Keys triggers that have me endlessly cleaning my carpets, are dirt, spills, food crumbs, pet hairs, a holdhold full of 3 untidy boys, 2 very fluffy dogs & a mischievous cat! it seems no matter how many times l vacuum my carpets, they never look really clean.
    I truly need the help of a #Britex Carpet Cleaning Machine, it would help me get right in there & give my carpets the thorough, deep, soapy clean they deserve. This would make me & my tired looking carpets extremely happy!
    I’m super impressed with all the reviews, it would be an absolute privilege to be the lucky lady to own a #Britex

    Everyone loves a clean carpet. Sometimes my kids will sneak drinks in there room and then there’s horrible patch of whatever sticky drink that needs cleaning straight away or if it generally looks grotty from lots of walking etc. It would be most people’s dream to own this awesome Britex and it’s definitely something I would truly love to own.

    Carpet cleaning is an important routine to ensure a more hygienic environment, improved appearance, elimination of mites and bacteria, deodorization etc. I hire a carpet cleaner 4 times a year as i know that dirt remains in the deepest fiber of materials the only way to clean the carpet effectively is to use a quality carpet cleaner like the Britax cleaning machine.
