I know we've discussed vacuums here before. Got my Electrolux last year and other than the fact that the bags are too small, it's a great vacuum. Now, I'd like to know about steam vacs to clean the rugs with. My dog has an allergy to eggs and possibly something else, as she loosed all over the carpet the other day for the umteenth time and it's getting a bit expensive to have a prof. carpet cleaner come every time it happens. I borrowed a Bissel Carpet Cleaner from our in-laws a while ago and haven't returned it. I want to get our own, but not like this one. The one we borrowed doesn't get hot, just uses hot tap water. I've seen a few, but not sure which one to get. They vary from about $169 to over $400. (I don't want the big professional ones that cost $600. I don't want to spend more than 2 to 3 hundred on it. Anyone wanna give me some imput?
