Save yourself $3000 and dont buy it
I have purchased and used No Vac 549ml Professional Fresh Pet Plus Carpet Cleaner to treat a small area along the edge of my carpet where my pet had a few accidents. I immediately found the smell to be very overwhelming, but had hoped that it would fade within a few days. I have since moved out of the apartment and am trying to sell it. I have had a professional carpet cleaner come and attend a specialized pet urine carpet cleaning which has done a wonderful job of cleaning my carpet and removing pet smells, however the stench of this product ...literally 2 months later is still so overwhelming that it is embarrassing. People who come to my open homes comment on the awful smell and one potential buyer even stated that it was so bad it put them off buying the apartment. I leave the doors open between open houses and it still doesnt fix the problem. I have just searched online for solutions as it is affecting the sale of my property, only to find that several other people had to replace their carpet to get rid of the smell. I am so disappointed and very stressed at the prospect of having to pay $3000 to have my carpet replaced because of this awful product. I did do a patch test and there is no visible damage to the carpet but I could not possibly have predicted that the strong chemical smell would last for months and months. It has literally been 2 months since I used the product and even with the doors left open all the time the smell of this makes me feel sick every time I walk into my apartment. No one will buy it until I rip up the entire lounge room and replace it, money which I should have been spending on my new house.
PLEASE take this product off the shelves!!!
PLEASE take this product off the shelves!!! It contains dangerous chemical not listed on the can.
I'm pregnant and want this out of my house. Makes me extremel ill.
Whats your forwarding address? Im returning both full and partial cans back to you to dispose of safely.
Purchased in August 2019 at Coles Footscray.
Dries in five minutes...yeah right!
I put this on a hall runner very lightly. 2 hours later, still wet. The smell. Well what can I say, I threw the can out and it's only half used. I bought the vanilla orchid one and maybe I'm just getting a little smarter with chemicals in my house but I just couldn't take it. Definitely not buying again. For dog odour and general freshness, I should just use a natural lavender or vanilla spray with bicarb or vinegar.
No Vac works best
I have tried other stain removers but have not come across a better product than NOVAC for removing most stains including Oil, Urine, Face Creams,coffee,and wine stains.
It is nearly always out of stock at the local hardware. I grab a couple of cans when it is in stock, a very popular product.
bought a hoover 7.2 handy vac some 18 months ago and now find battery replacement battery not available from Godfreys or anybody else.
Had to get battery world to make a replacement battery, thank goodness they could do it.
It pays when buying a handy vac if replacement battery still available.
Bedroom caught on fire
My mum was cleaning the carpet and as it got towards the end of the can, it blew up in her hands, a flame arose and within seconds the bedroom was up in flames. Thank god no one was hurt. This company should re consider taking this product off the shelves to have them properly examined. In so much shock right now I can't believe it. Not worth the risk.
Caused my Ragdoll cats fur to fall out!
I should've trusted my gut feeling & not bought this product. It claimed to be safe to use around pets. It is not!! My Ragdoll's fur started falling out. He spends a lot of time laying on the carpet & my vet agrees that this product is the cause. I feel awful. Bi carb soda sprinkled on the carpet & vacuumed off a few hours later removes odours. I know better now. Thankfully his fur will grow back, but I imagine if I used this product regularly & through grooming he ingested it, he would have suffered more serious health problems.
Pet owners beware!!!
used no vac foaming sanitiser + deodoriser 290g can on my carpets... and the whole can was only enough for 2 and a half bedrooms. was so disappointed. wasn't even spraying a thick layer cos I felt like it was emptying so fast. $4.90 from Coles. I cant really say wether the product was efficient or not because the hydrocarbons were so strong, was almost hard to breathe. :/
should've opted for $1.90 canister of Coles brand lavender carpet powder crystals - would've been plenty to cover at least 3 rooms with it and been better value!
This is the worst product I've ever used! I've spent the past 4 days trying to get rid if the disgusting smell. It has invaded the entire house and is making us all sick. If anyone can suggest a deodoriser that will remove the smell of this stuff please let me know! I'd rather have the doggie smell that I was hoping to rid!
The best Stuff!
Always have some in the cupboard in case of vomiting, spills, poo, etc. Since having kids - can't live without it. Very easy (and kind of fun!) to use. Reduces staining, gets rid of smell (I buy the vanilla scented one) and leaves you confident that your carpet is back to being liveable with. I always remove as much of the spill/vomit/ or whatever by rubbing carpet with water wet damp cloth first, then spray with the No Vac foam. It does have a strong smell, but it is nice enough (certainly better than what you are trying to clean up) , and it ...reminds you to leave the area for a while after you have sprayed it , so that you don't breathe it in. Excellent product. p.s Even for severe chocolate "Up and Go" vomit stains, it reduced the staining and removed the smell. I later had stain professionally removed (in one go). So, even when it doesn't get rid of everything perfectly, it definitely helps.
No vac for fresh carpets professional (Fresh)
The product is horrible. I will never try it ever. It has created breathing problem to all of us in the family. Moreover the company does not take responsibility for the product. The odour of the product has penetrated in the rug so I have to get the rug steam cleaned by professional carpet cleaner to make it odour free. The company is not even bothered about its reputation as it refused to bear the cost for cleaning the rug for the odour which has penetrated in the rug. Will never use no vac products again.
Cleaned cat vomit stains!
I bought No Vac Instant Spot & Stain Remover from my local Masters a couple of months back. I have a cat who tends to vomit, and it seems every cat food leaves a stain. In the past I've tried a couple of other stain removers with mixed results, none of which I actually felt happy about. I also rent, so keeping carpets clean and stain-free is super important. I finally tried No Vac on a few stubborn, larger vomit stains, and I wish I took a before picture! The stains are gone, and it was so easy to use! I also tried it on some Blu-Tack stuck in ...the carpet. It loosened the Blu-Tack so I was able to pull it out with no damage to the carpet. On smaller spots, I can't even find where they once were! Inexpensive, simple to use, removed cat vomit stains, loosened Blu-Tack.
I don't know what is worse - the smell of cat urine or the smell of the no vac for pets. The no vac I sprayed after spot cleaning the carpet in a couple of areas seems to have really bound to the carpet fibres and now despite having shampooed the carpet a couple of times I can't get rid of the smell of the no vac - I definitely would not use this product again or recommend it.
easy to use
digusting smell that is impossible to get rid of
I can't live without it
It gives the house a nice carming affict I just love it so much.
The only one I use is the camerile Can't live without it.
At the moment I can't seem to buy this product in any of our grocery stores I would like to know if it is coming back on our NewZealand we have all the other brands but not the one with the daisey flower on it can you please help.

Questions & Answers
Hi, I have used no vac instant spot & stain remover on my lounge room carpet & now have worse stains/marks on the carpet. It now looks like oil stains, like when you apply the spray & the carpet is darkened (a wet look). Please, any help as to how I can rectify this???
I have not used the No Vac "spot and stain remover". I use the No Vac foam "sanitiser and deoderiser". May help to use something like a "Vanish" product? or BEST IDEA is to call in professional carpet people like Stain Busters. I used Stain Busters for extremely bad stains and they are great. I am sorry that my review for the sanitiser/deoderiser is confused with the other No Vac product. Hope you can get a good result.
I have been using NoVac for some time but now I can't find it in my local IGA and have also looked in Coles and Woollies but they don't seem to carry it anymore. Could you please advise where I can purchase it? My postcode is 5522. Thankyou
