Although some carpet steamers and cleaners have a suction mechanism to remove the cleaning fluid and water from your carpet after cleaning the area, you should only use them for steaming or cleaning a carpet and never use them like a vacuum cleaner.
A steam cleaner uses hot water vapor and a cleaning solution to displace and extract dirt, dust, and tough stains on your carpet. A vacuum uses an electric motor to suck dirt, dust, and hair from your carpet and hard-surface floors.
A good rule of thumb is to have your carpet professionally steam cleaned at least once a year, twice if you seem to track a lot of dirt in. This way you get a good, deep cleaning and don`t let the dirt build up. Vacuum once or twice a week to keep it clean in between your steam cleaning sessions.

Hello, I have a Hoover quadraflex Powermatic central vacuum system Model # s8099-031 that requires a new replacement 35 ft hose…I have contacted Hoover and they do not know where to buy a replacement hose for this model. I live in Canada. Any idea where I can get a replacement hose for this system? Thanks kindly, Tammy
ANSWER : Tammy, no info re your location, so I”l try this.
Your Hoover hose is shot because it was made of rubber.There are new swivel handled, tangle proof lighter hoses made of vinyl which will last much longer and can be adapted to the old Hoover head by changing the upper steel tube.
Find a Hoover service center, outlet in the yellow pages and ask for the “NEW “style, gray“Plastiflex“ brand hose and upper adapter tube sold with new Hoovers at Costco and you will be all set. Then, when the head eventually dies, you can upgrade to a far better one , while still having the Hoover cannister, the hose and tools do not need to match the original tank.
