Mytee 1003DX Speedster Carpet Extractor Review
Mytee 1003DX Speedster Deluxe Heated Carpet Extractor Full Review
Many homemakers prefer to clean their home and car interior carpets quite occasionally but for most of them, renting a carpet extractor is not always an easy option. There are too many criteria to choose a good one, and the more important point is that learning how to use a cleaning machine properly may be too time-consuming. Remember that rental unit is charged by hours used, so you definitely do not want to waste hours reading manuals and setting it up.
That is when hiring a professional is the better choice. As a carpet cleaning business owner, I have seen on many occasions that homeowners neglected to do the cleaning task for months or even years. Such a big mess is a headache even for pro cleaners. I wanted a machine that would be easy to use as well as gives me the desired result for the most demanding jobs. I had seen some costly machines with my friends; however, I was not very happy with their results.
Being very satisfied with the Mytee Lite II, I decided to give its bigger brother, the Mytee 1003DX Speedster Deluxe Heated Carpet Extractor, a try. I must say I was a bit apprehensive about buying it but now after tested for weeks, I don’t regret buying it. It has been one of my best decisions so far. I remember first using it on my client’s heavily pet stained staircase carpet. The process was flawless, and the stain and odor have been completely eliminated!

What Do The Features Mean?
The Mytee 1003DX Speedster Deluxe Heated Carpet Extractor is the most powerful portable unit available I have seen so far. An incredible 500 P.S.I. adjustable pump, dual 3 stage vacs, and a 1600W heater will help you achieve maximum efficiency, minimal dry times, and optimal cleaning performance!
We often overlooked drying times for carpet cleaning products, but it is one of the most crucial features when we look for when purchasing a new carpet extractor as it becomes very inconvenient if the carpet is wet for a longer time after cleaning it. We cannot move the furniture as well as the kids, and the pet has to be kept away because they dirty the wet carpet even more.
The Mytee 1003DX Speedster also has a soap dispenser which dispenses the right amount of soap with the water automatically.
The larger the cleaning solution tank, the less often we need to refill it if we clean a lot of carpets at a time which results in easier work done.
Since it has aluminum lift hands so loading and unloading become very user-friendly. I prefer using the manufacturer particular cleaning solution because that gives me better results, but it may vary from person to person. The machine is capable of mixing up the right amount of detergent with water and suck out all the dirt and stains.
Despite packing a ton of power inside this carpet cleaner, it is considered very portable and not very bulky like many rental machines. There are smaller and more compact ones as well which are easier to handle than the full sized fatter and bigger models. It can work wonders as well but as my experience says they work better on carpets treated with stain protectors but the results were not up to the mark with untreated carpets.
Important Note Before Using
It is critical that we check the carpet manufacturer’s manual before deciding the frequency of cleaning the carpet and the amount of cleaning solution to be used or else it might damage the carpet.
If you do not follow the instruction correctly, do not be surprised to face common short circuit issues.
