I Googled some reviews and the Hoovers seems like a good idea:
Best Carpet Cleaners: Carpet Cleaner Reviews

The kid at Best Buy also recommended hard wood cleaners too. I never even heard of such a thing! I always thought you just mopped it and it's good to go, but apparently there are all kinds of hard wood cleaners too. Anyone have experience with hardwood cleaners? There's a lot of carpet and hardwood cleaners on sale right now on Best Buy too so I think I will get some before the sale ends.

Sounds like the kid at Best Buy is on a comission. Did he tell you what is now better about carpet cleaners?

Never heard of hardwood cleaners. Never needed one. A mop is all you need. With the new wood floor finishes, what you are mopping is basically a plastic surface, not wood. If you have a waxed floor then maybe you need something special, but you have to be insane to have a waxed floor these days.
