I purchased the Hoover SmartWash Advanced Pet Carpet Cleaner for a few reasons. One being I could make easy payments, another that I do have pets and I wanted something that could handle it, but the main reason was that it had the upholstery cleaning attachment. The day that I went to use this machine I had plans that required the furniture being cleaned, I was confident I could use this machine and get it done quickly, I open the box and I find a stair attachment, no upholstery at all, that must be purchased seperately, extremely furious! I decided to try the stair attachment but the hose for the attachment doesn't work at all, no spray comes out, nothing! Very let down and disappointed in Hoover. I had to spot clean the furniture by hand.
Pros and Cons:
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
