Hi All,
I'm looking to purchase an upright carpet cleaner to use in between annual professional carpet cleanings. In the past I've always just borrowed whatever brand my parents owned at the time. What models do you all own and/or recommend? Also, are there any upright models that have a brushroll or spinning brushes that are belt driven and not just turbine powered?

vacuuming dried foams

Aren't those dried foams really hard on a vacuum? I have also heard foams such as the Wolite rug cleaner are very bad for vacuums, as are things such as the carpet fresh powder.

I like.

The Bissell Big Green. I rented one just once to help a friend out, and was so impressed by it that I just had to have one. Purchased a used one from Ebay and I've been really happy with it. They are somewhat spendy at about 400. I think I paid somewhere around 200 for mine used, totally worth it in my opinion.

I normally just use my Floor Pro because it's what I have and it's relatively convenient. I've used the Bissell Big Green before though and it's definitely a great machine, if I were to buy a new carpet cleaner then that would be the one I'd pick.
