4-0 out of 5 stars Great for people with kids
I got the carpet cleaner about a month ago and so far I think I got what I payed for. I have a two year old and this carpet cleaner has been a real life saver while living in an apartment. The only bad thing about it is that when I pack it up and put it away the soap leaks out into the clean water container and onto my floor where is has been sitting. I have fallowed all of the instructions on how to store it and nothing seams to help. This is the first carpet cleaner I have gotten and so far compared to the one's you rent I am happy. If you are looking to buy this carpet cleaner please look around to find the best price because the differ from store to store.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Cleaner
I got my Altantis last week and used it for the first time over the weekend. I usually rent a cleaner from my local grocery store and cleaned these same carpets with a rented machine 6 months ago. The Atlantis was so much easier to use! I went over each section of carpet twice and my carpets were completly dry in less than 2 hours. I love the fact that the handle folds for easy stoage and the entire unit (including attachments) fits under a shelf in my linen closet. This is the first cleaner I have ever purchased and I love it!

1-0 out of 5 stars Carpet sopping wet-sore back
I was very excited about this new carpet cleaner. My Hoover had died after 6 years of use, and although I liked it very much I thoguht this Atlantis looked easy to use and small to store. Well, it arrived yesterday and I tried it right away. Well, it is now 24 hours later and my carpet is still wet in some areas!
I went over the whole carpet again and again and again and to no avail, the carpet was still sopping wet. The return tank never actually filled up all the way once even though I used 3 tanks of water on the carpet. The cleaner is very heavy and difficult to push. I admit I have shag carpeting, but when I used my hoover it was no more difficult than regular vacuuming. With this thing I actually had to heave it forward and pull it back with both hands. It was exhausting and back breaking. (I think without the water it weighs 35 lbs.) Well, it is back in the box with a return label on it. It just did not remove the dirty water from the carpet. Very disappointing.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best extractor out there
I run a housekeeping department at a large resort and spa. I originally bought the 2591 used it, loved it, then found I needed the power scrubber and floor tools, so i returned it and got the 2595a, it is so powerful that 90% of all the water put out gets sucked back in. it is not the best on burber carpet. No back aches, it rolls easily, i use commercial products at work and I am thinking of buying a few of these instead of the ones i use at work that cost 3 times as much and do the same job. ...

Sponges and mops are fine for occasional dirt, but to reallyblast away grime, there's nothing like a shot of steam. Theenvironmentally friendly Hotshot handheld steamer from Eureka provideschemical-free, on-the-go steaming power to clean just about every kindof surface that can get dirty. Use it to clean upholstery, sealedgrout, bathroom tile, kitchen tile, stovetops, stove exhaust filters,windows, and mirrors. You can even steam the wrinkles out of clothingand draperies. The Hotshot is a great degreaser and kills dust mites,salmonella, and E. coli, so it's a handy tool for sanitizing food prepareas, bedding, and pet quarters. Accessories include a flexibleextension hose, a straight nozzle for windowsills and ledges, a scrubbrush for stovetops and grout, an angled nozzle for toilet bowls, afabric tool, a window cleaner, a measuring cup, and a funnel. Becominghandy with all the attachments took us a few practice runs, but wefound them all to be useful. The unit is comfortable to hold and refilland features a stay-cool, textured grip and a power-indicator light.Made out of high-impact polypropylene, the Hotshot weighs just 3.5pounds and has a 25-foot power cord. --Emily Bedard ...

5-0 out of 5 stars How can cleaning be fun???
Let's face facts, folks. I'm a 29 year old bachelor. I hate cleaning. I do it only when it becomes absolutely necessary, which usually happens when I'm waist deep in clutter and mess. Wherever the cleaning bug gene is that runs in most families, it made absolutely certain to skip me.

I had to clean my house before selling it recently, and I had to do the unthinkable. Yup, I had to actually exert myself in that one activity I hate more than anything else. And that'd be cleaning. Downcast and sullen, I labored through the task at hand with as much gusto as I could gather, but it wasn't until my folks, who were helping me in my endeavours, pulled out this wondrous device that the experience actually became good.

Pour water in it, plug it in and let it heat up. After some minutes pass, press the trigger and the hand steamer exerts a jet of high-powered steam that will remove any stain. Yes, any stain. I was so impressed with the demos my Mom was showing me that I had to try myself on the grunge on the kitchen floor. After a few sweeps I had to try on something else. So the front of my refrigerator became my next victim. After that I was looking around for something else...anything else. And as I began this on the dryer in the laundry room I realized that I was actually *enjoying* the experience.

This thing gets into cracks and crevices that noone could ever dream of getting to before, cleans them, and as a bonus sterilizes them completely. My bathroom is in cleaner, better shape now then it was when I first got the house!

There's several different attachments that you can put on the nozzle to make the steam come out at different angles, and others that can allow you to steam clean mirrors or flat surfaces. It is beyond easy to operate and is perversely enjoyable, even for a self proclaimed couch-potato such as myself. I recommend this for anyone wanting to get stains or dirt off of surfaces that nothing short of molecular acid and a brillo pad will remove. But don't be surprised if your husband/fiance'/boyfriend eventually steals it from you to do the task themselves. You might even see them smile as they work!

4-0 out of 5 stars Great For Cleaning Carpeted Stairs!
I absolutely love this steamer for cleaning the several sets of carpeted stairs I have, for the pitter patter of four sets of energetic Labrador feet can muddy up even a stain-resistant commercial carpet over a few weeks time, especially during mud season up here in rural New Hampshire. So, while a handy-vac or a wist-broom is okay for day to dirt, but I have to whip this baby out every month or so to grind off the ground in dirt. This small and lightweight Hotshot handheld steamer made by Eureka gives me the steaming power I need to do the job quickly, easily, and with minimum fuss. Of course, one can use it for a variety of purposes, such as cleaning upholstery, sealed grout, bathroom tile, kitchen tile, stovetops, stove exhaust filters, windows, and mirrors. It can even be used to steam wrinkles from clothing or draperies. It is supposedly also great for degreasing, and will snuff out mites, salmonella, and other microorganisms, so it is a good hygiene agent, as well. The accessories include a flexible extension hose, a straight nozzle, a scrub brush, an angled nozzle, a fabric tool, a window cleaner, a measuring cup, and a funnel. As I said before, it is easy to use, lightweight, and comfortable to hold. Enjoy!

3-0 out of 5 stars Not so hot HotShot
I liked the idea of steam cleaning to eliminate bacteria and other germs but it seems to shoot water all over the place. It also doesn't remove dirt or grime from tile or vinyl. The window squeegee doesn't really work either; it just pushes the dirt around. Basically,it is good for sterilizing areas without the use of chemicals but you do have to use chemicals to remove stains and a sponge to wipe up the excess water.

5-0 out of 5 stars THE BEST HAIRSPRAY REMOVER
The Hot Shot Steamer is the best cleaner on the earth. Especially for the bathroom. The hairspray builds up on the vinyl floor and is very hard to remove, but the Hot Shot removes it with ease. And best of all, there's no chemicals...just add water and go.

2-0 out of 5 stars Great idea, not so great results
Good product for cleaning not so tough stains. Not so great in the bathroom. May be useful for killing bacteria, no way to tell. Pretty much a disappointing product. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good product with a few drawbacks
I was deciding between the Deep Steam Cleaner and the Eureka Atlantis, which cleans hard surface floors as well and is therefore more expensive. However, I read a product review somewhere else that said the Atlantis didn't do well with Berber carpeting. So I ordered the 2586B and have been very happy with it so far. As others have said, you really will not believe the amount of dirt that winds up in the collection tank, and the carpets do dry very fast. One drawback: if you have pets like we do, you probably will have to clean all of the pet hair out of the floor bristles each time you use the machine, even if you vacuum first as instructed. It's not hard, it's just gross when it's all wet and grimey with the dirt from the carpet. I also have to use a screwdriver after every cleaning to take off the clear collection shield in the front, which also gets somewhat clogged with wet pet hair. But at least the pet hair is getting sucked out of the carpet, and it's not that hard to clean the machine. Another caveat: this is not really a steam cleaner in the true sense of the word. It's misnamed because you're just using warm water, and no steam comes out of the machine. Vapor steam machines are totally different and good for people with asthma and allergies because they kill dustmites, and also for people who don't want to use chemicals to clean. But vapor steam cleaners seem to be much more expensive if you want one that really works, so I ordered a non-toxic carpet cleaner called Carpet-Free to use with the Eureka machine. (I had read that John Travolta's son almost died from toxic carpet cleaners, so wanted to be extra-careful.) Finally, a real plus was Eureka's customer service. I emailed both Eureka and Hoover with the same question before I made the purchase. Hoover never responded but Eureka sent me a detailed answer promptly. All things considered, the product is a good value.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Must Have
If you are a pet owner or the Mother of small children you will find that this little machine will make your life much easier. I have used several different models (including the rental machines) and have found this to be one of the easiest carpet cleaners to use. It is not too heavy and it has an extra long cord so you don't have to keep replugging it in every time you turn around.
The only real drawbacks I can find about the Eureka carpet cleaner is that you seem to have to empty the collection tank alot... it is a simple procedure though and once you get in the groove of the cleaning it doesn't seem to be a big deal. [and besides, if you had a larger tank the unit would weigh more]
You will be amazed at what comes out of your seemingly "clean" looking carpet! For the price, it can't be beat... don't waste your time and money on those little hand held units...spend a bit more... you won't be sorry.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Value and Performance
I had spent a lot of time reading reviews provided by Amazon and other consumer report organizations on deep steam cleaners. There seemed to be a lot of mixed reviews on the Bissell and the Hoover. Aside from Bissell creating chaos by offering so many different models of their machines, and the Hoovers just simply appeared to be a little more of an expense than what I had wanted to endure, considering that most of my house is hardwood with oriental/area rugs. However, it seems that most of the problems reported by consumers with all makes/models was the lack of following directions from actually cleaning their carpets to maintaining their machines. I couldn't find many reviews on the Eureka, which I thought could be a good or a bad thing. Assuming that chances are, however, that most people are apt to review a product when they are extremely dissatified with its performance or quality. Eureka has been in American homes for many years, how could one go wrong. I purchased the Eureka because it was the best value for the money. And, I was able to get a pretty decent deal through Amazon. It has paid for itself in the money I have saved by doing my carpet cleaning myself instead of having the pros do it. So far, it has performed beautifully! It has done what I have expected of it and even more. I have been surprised with what it has pulled out of the carpets and area rugs, even those that looked clean. It is easy to use and easy to clean and maintain. The clean water tank and the dirty water tank are easy to carry and remove/install in the machine. The machine isn't terribly heavy (my 2 year old Kenmore upright vac is heavier) and is relatively easy to manuever. The carpets dry quickly and smell and look clean after using the Eureka. The only thing that I wished it had, which would complete the entire package, is a bare floor attachment.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good machine for the money
I bought this cleaner (2576A)- same cleaner minus the attachments- and really liked it.

It is a little on the heavy side at 17#, but did a great job cleaning my carpets, both the low pile and the Berber. In fact, I had just cleaned the Berber with my old unit using a wand and hot, sudsy water just 2 days ago. I couldn't believe all the dirt that came out of it using the Eureka just 2 days later!

The dirty water basin is a little on the small size. It says it's 1 gallon, but I found I had to empty it more often than I had to fill the machine. It took all of 30 seconds each time, though, so it wasn't any more inconvenient than any other system I've used in the past.

Don't know how it will hold up over the long haul, but for a first time use, I'm impressed. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Works well on three types of floors
I have three types of flooring; vinyl, sealed wood and tile. This steamer does a fantastic job on all of them. Some people note a dulling of the surface of shiny vinyl; this is true, but since I have cats and their litter box in the laundry room with the vinyl floor, cleanliness is better than shine, any day. The steamer works well on tile, very well. The floors seem to stay cleaner than if wet-mopped. I also like the fact I can wash the cover (the "magic cloth" waffle weave cloth that fits over the bottom.) Some people note that the cloths wear out; hint--don't bother to throw the washed cover in the dryer. It will fit better over the mop and last longer.

Points off for the cloths being expensive and a bit hard to find, if you want spares. And a point off for it needing refilling, at least on large expanses of floors. Other than that, this is a great way to clean and sanitize the floors. I like it a lot.

5-0 out of 5 stars For people who hate to clean
I hate to clean, especially the floors in my bathroom and kitchen. The mop, the buckets, the dragging around from room to room: yuck! But I absolutely like clean floors and can't convince any one else to do them for me. My hairdresser was using this one day on her cutting room floor and I was amazed at how clean the floor was and effortless it was to use the steamer. I shopped around for comparison, but this is the only of its kind on the market now at an affordable price. I highly recommend it and am even considering the smaller one for counters and such. It cleans both my bath and kitchen in under five minutes and they dry immediately.

1-0 out of 5 stars Surprised it didn't work well at all.........
After reading the online reviews from people who absolutely love this product I am confused! What are they doing differently than I am? I found this product a complete waste of time and money. It doesn't do a good job on my tile and it is horrible on my laminate wood flooring. I have tried everything and I always have to re-clean the tile (it never gets it very clean) and it leaves horrible streaks on the laminate. Every once in awhile I drag it back out and try again, but it really doesn't do a good job at all. All in all, I am very disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best little handheld mop ever!!
With 3 boys and a dog in the house who has time to mop! As soon as you do you know someone is going to have to walk across the floor, so a lot of time I just wouldn't bother! This neat Steam mop is perfect! It gets the floors cleaner then I could with a once-over with my normal mop, and the floor is completely dry almost immediately! No waiting! If you are considering this steam-mop.. take my word for it.. it's well worth the money!

You don't have to lug around a device the size of a washingmachine just to harness the cleaning power of steam. This environmentalmultisteamer from Eureka is a self-contained, tidy little unit thatcombines hygienic and degreasing power with a wide range ofaccessories. Just fill the 2-cup boiler with tap water and you're readyto blast the grime off of floors, tile, sealed grout, upholstery,shower doors, greasy stoves, and windows. Great for the whole house,the machine kills E. coli, salmonella, and dust mites--all without theuse of detergents that can harm the environment and irritate thesenses. You can also put it to use steaming wrinkles out of clothing,cleaning bedding, and sanitizing pet beds.

With a sturdy, maneuverable base, the cleaner is easy to tote around,though it took us a couple of tries to get the knack of attaching theaccessories. There are also a lot of smart details, like the sealedpower switch, safety filler cap, and steam tank and power-indicatorlights. For a full range of cleaning options, the kit includes twoextension wands, a floor brush, a straight nozzle, an angled nozzle, aplastic brush, a brass brush, a fabric brush and cover cloth, and awindow squeegee. An included storage bag holds the machine and itssmall army of parts. --Emily Bedard ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Not just for girlies
Very smart tool for cleaning just about anything. I cleaned my oven burners, floor tile, and have so much confidence in it that I will be cleaning my pool tile with it this weekend.

Floor Tile: I used the narrow brush tool to clean the .5" grout lines that I have in my kitchen and It looks like it removed a thin layer to make the them appear brand new. I went fairly slow and agitated with the brush while applying direct steam. I noticed a thin dust layer on the edges of the tile after I performed this which may be a the top layer of grout or the packed in dust - The grout looks fantastic, but I may need to limit how often I use this technique considering I may be taking off layers or the seal - but I'm very impressed with how effective this technique can be.

Cleaning the tile is a joy as well - This unit comes with two cloths that hook on to the floor tool that basically act as a catcher for dirt and dust. I would still recommend sweeping floors with heavy dust or debris first as you would if you were going to use a mop - the cloth picks up objects that stick to it - but anything too big will be pushed around. These cloths are very durable and I have washed one several times and it seems as good as new.

I have not used the tool as a steamer for clothing yet, but I am pretty confident it will work to get all the wrinkles out.

The times between refills seem to be a little over a half an hour. The process of re-filling the tank can be a little tedious considering you have to wait for the unit to cool down before opening the tank - I would compare the annoyance factor to waiting for a slice of pizza to cool down before chowing it - not a big deal.

The 370 is fun to use, has tools to do about anything, and will kick the crud out of any stubborn stains or dirt that have been plaguing you. If this thing doesn't beat it it probably needed to be replaced and not cleaned in the first place.

I give it 4 out of 5 stars - I would have given it 5 if it had come with a remote control and I could clean things from my couch.

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Wonderful!
This little thing is one of the best cleaning tools I've ever owned. It is easy to use (if you read the owner's manual first) and a gem--especially if you have someone in the house who is sensitive to chemicals as I do. But I can't stress enough that the Enviro-steamer cleans *better* than those chemicals ever did and leaves no odor behind, just clean floors (and bathrooms, and stovetops, and windows...). I have hardwood and tile floors throughout the place, and I've never found it so easy to clean them. It's also great for steaming the wrinkles out of just about anything.

One reviewer mentioned their thumb getting tired, but there's a switch lock that can be used to lock the steamer on as well as off (so you don't need to keep presssing the button down).

Just, as the other reviewers have said, let it heat up adequately (the amber light is only a thermostat from what I can tell), and let all the water out of the hose before attempting to steam anything. You'll find that when it's full of water you get less steam than when it's only half full of water (the water and the steam stay in the same reservoir), so I almost never fill mine completely--I've yet to find a cleaning job that required the full two cups of water-as-steam to complete.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Terribly Impressed!
I bought my steamer almost two years ago, primarily to sanitize the ceramic tiles on my kitchen floor. And after all this time, I still have to say I am not terribly impressed with this product. In fact, this is my second review of it and my rating has not changed.

On the positive side, it's good for softening stuck-on food or stubborn spots on the kitchen floor. It was excellent for cleaning the oven grill. I also use it with one of the small nozzles to clean my wedding rings. But the reason it was able to do these jobs very well, in my view, is that it provided a steady stream of hot water NOT steam.

Another reviewer on this site seemed to think it was a lack of common sense or basic education which made other reviewers complain about the product spurting water, but I assure you it did and in significant quantities. I expected some steam condensate, but my Enviro-Steamer produces more hot water than it does steam. In fact, I get a continuous and messy flow of water, as opposed to the steam it is supposed to produce (no matter how long I wait for it to heat up). This makes it completely unsuitable for steaming clothes or using it on upholstery. I have tried it time and time again on our clothes, each time following the manual on what to do when it spurts water, but I have never been able to do anything more than drench the clothes. As a result, I would not chance using it on upholstery. It may simply be that I got a faulty unit, but I have to agree with the others who feel it spurts far too much water.

I also think that it is not powerful enough; i.e. the jet of steam was not powerful enough, which might be because it didn't produce a sufficient volume of steam to begin with.

In fact, I am so underwhelmed by my Enviro-Steamer that I am hoping that I just got a faulty unit and didn't actually waste my money on what seems to be an under-performing appliance. My advice would be to spend a little extra on a better steamer. I sure wish I had!

5-0 out of 5 stars I Love it!
Number one - READ THE DIRECTIONS!! I know that other users complained of water spurting out. The directions clearly say that condensation can accumulate in the hose but that is only a small amount of water that I squirt into a cup (as recommended in the directions) before getting started. You can minimize condensation by keeping the hose higher than the base once the machine is up to operating temperature. My only other guess as to why water would spurt out would be that the device is only meant to hold 2 measuring cups full of water (provided with the steamer). I suppose that water might spurt out if you just filled the steamer up all the way to the top. The point is that, aside from a little bit of water at the beginning, I've NEVER had water spurt out of my steamer.
The other complaint that I noticed was that the user's finger got tired. If you press the steam button down and then slid the little switch next to it, the steam stays on until you switch it off. No painful button finger. Also, I've never run out of water before I was done with a job. The light will cycle back and forth between heating and ready but that doesn't mean that you can't keep using the machine. I've never noticed any break or change in my steam flow while I'm using the machine.
Now for my experiences with the Steamer - I had found a stain of some kind, ground into the carpet, from someone who lived in our house before us. Who knows what it was or how many years it had been there. It looked like bubble gum or silly putty... something that we thought we were just going to have to live with until we got new carpet. The steamer had that junk completely OUT of the carpet with absolutely no trace of it left in just a few seconds. That was my very first experiment with the steamer and I was overwhelmed - I never thought that it would live up to the real infomercial-style tests. I love the fact that it not only removes stains but kills germs too! I have allergies to molds and dust. I've cleaned my mattress, couches, and throw pillows with the steamer. I know that those places are breeding grounds for dust mites and molds. It really does seem to have helped to reduce my seasonal allergies. Not to mention the fact that my furniture looks great!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Cleaning is a crappy job, so quit complaining.
I'm an apt. manager and I saw a refurb. unit for quite a nice price so I decided to take the plunge after seeing the infomercials for the tiny ones.

My main complaint when cleaning things is the chemistry required. Yes bleach is amazing, but doing it in too many small bathrooms or kitchens (particularly in the winter) gets me kinda dizzy, so I thought that this might do the trick.

No it is not a complete wonder tool, but it serves my intended purpose well. Yes there is still some serious elbow grease that's required, but I figure that's why they call cleaning "work" instead of fun.

I've used the unit on floor and tub grout using a scrubber tool that's either stainless or copper. I like that the wand allows me to put some weight into it.
