Cleaning, House Work

  For the housekeeping challenged.

Steam cleaning your own carpets

Carpet Care - University of Florida, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS)  []

Top 6 Carpet Steam Cleaners []

Bissell "Deep Cleaning machines", apparently only the 'ProHeat' models have onboard heaters (+25*F). sales pitch: []  Around $125-$250 wild guess.  Good rep, but wimpy specs.

Rug Doctor [] vague [specs], high prices ($700-$900).

Reliable Vapor Steam Cleaner System $250-$350  []

Aztec Heated Mini Extractor -  $600-$650 [] []
These things sound serious, and at a serious price.  Several rebranded models, all alike except for color, casters, other minor details.
