Interior cleaner

Been looking for something I can shampoo interiors with.
I was thinking Numatic George, but surely there's better options out there?

Budget is £400 but can stretch it.

I use a Vax 6131.
It’s very good for the money. However.... the head on it is a bit bulky and as a result I keep looking a the George as you are for the heads it has and the smaller spaces it can get into.

I tried the Vax on the indoor carpet the other day with the floor head. Way too big and not powerful enough to use the big head. Small head was used for the hall stairs and landing and did a superb job just took longer

I've been using Numatics for over 20 years and they've always been faithful servants, you'll be very hard pressed to find a better brand and with the back-up that Numatic has in the UK.
If you want to scratch that itch I'd advise that you get the twin flow twin motor model 2400 watt what a beast, ticks all the boxes for vehicle cleaning.
Not knocking the George in any way as it's a decent machine but if you got £400 then why not?

Numatic 570 that's the one, cheers I'm still open to any other offerings, but with 2400w to play with that'll take some beating, and like you say spares are everywhere.

Sorry to bring this one back to the front again, but I’ve been looking at the Numatic range this afternoon.

What are her benefits of the 570 over something like the CT370. I see the 370 has a pumped liquid supply, but is that a benefit or a hindrance for automotive use? I’m guessing the liquid will be pushed deeper into the fabric and carpets, but with the twin flow heads then this shouldn’t be an issue I would have thought?

Opinions please? Is the pumped liquid just a pita to work with regarding the trigger and bits?

With some Elbow grease. Whatever you use as a Shampoo, with cleaner & sponge.
Screw Fix do a WET & DRY Vacuum, I admit I've only used mine as a DRY vac but at less than £ 50 , worth looking at

I’m not fussed about the price of it, I have a Vax as I mentioned above, but was looking at the Numatic ranges and wondered about the ones with the trigger option and their ease of use against one of the ones that doesn’t have it
