Bought a Hoover Steam Vac about 8-10 years ago. Got it home and read all the instructions, then called the company up and said, "Where's the STEAM?". There wasn't any. I heat a big pan of water on the stove, and when it's close to boiling, I start carpet cleaning, putting another load of water in the pan to heat up, which is ready when it's time to refill the carpet vac. For my 25 year-old carpets, does an OK job.
If it were only up to me I would pull out all the flooring and paint my cement slab. Then I could clean my house with a leave blower. Alas, it's not up to me.
Yeah, that tends to have a low Wife Acceptance Factor. Landlords wouldn't like it, either...
