Very affordable, works great, easy to use and comes with many features and accessories.
Can be a bit bulky to move around at times.
This is the best deep cleaner I have ever used in my home to clean pet and kid messes as well as everyday traffic.
Why I Love My BISSELL ProHeat Deep Cleaner
I have had several BISSELL products before, including steam cleaners and vacuums and this is by far, my favorite of them all. I also have used non-BRISSEL brand steam cleaners and this does the best job of any I have owned or used. Mine was a gift but I would buy it myself in a heartbeat.
How I Use It
I find this upright cleaner to be a regularly used feature at my house. First, I have five kids- one of them an infant and we also have a dog. There is a lot of traffic from the dog and kids as well as other children who come over to visit. My kids are actually quite clean (especially compared to some I have seen) but you just canít prevent the fact that dirt gets tracked in.
Then there are accidents. Donít get me started on the accidents. Someone might spill their juice or bleed on to the carpet. If you have kids around, you know what Iím talking about. Then there is potty training- of the kids and the dog. Itís putting it mildly to say that some nasty stuff can get into the carpets.
Now letís add to this the fact that we all have severe allergies and you can see why a great deep cleaner is so important. Some of my kids have outdoor allergies and when stuff gets tracked in from outdoors, it gets into the carpets and furniture and causes them to be sick. Myself and the other children are allergic to mold and dust mites to such a degree that we would be rendered useless when a bad case of allergies comes on.
So I use my deep cleaner for the normal household functions of someone with children and pets but also for the added benefit of keeping my immune-compromised family healthy and happy. Few products can live up to the very demanding job but this one does.
Why I Love It
The most obvious reason to love this deep cleaner is that it works but when it comes right down to it, there are many other features that makes it stand out over other working models. First, it is upright. This makes it easy to use. Itís just like vacuuming the floor. It has attachments and accessories but they are not complicated to use or to store. It all attaches directly to the unit itself.
It works with a combination of cleaning solution, spinning brushes and heat. So you donít have to worry about the water going cold and not cleaning as well. The cleaner itself is heated to keep the water warm until your job is done.
The cleaner has four different custom clean settings. I mostly used the "normal clean" setting and then switched to "heavy traffic" for the dirtiest regions and stains. The "Dry Aire" feature sends hot air to your carpet to aid in drying.
Tips to Do It Right
Some tips that I have learned after using this cleaner a lot is that you can get more from your machine if you use it correctly. First, always vacuum any loose dirt up before you use it. Next, donít go crazy with the trigger button. Light presses while slowly taking the cleaner over the dirty area will do a much better job than over-saturating it with soap and water. Take nice slow, sweeping motions rather than running over it quickly. This gives the brushes a good chance to penetrate the dirt.
Finally, take note of the warning signs that the tank is full or that you are out of water. Be sure to dump and refill as needed and this machine will work great and last you a very long time. I also use a plain vinegar water solution on the ďclean rinseĒ option afterwards to make sure I get all of the soap out of the carpets that my children will be playing on and when done, I clean all the parts, brushes and canisters before storing for next time.

What Others Have to Say
Second one I have bought. First one was lent out to everyone and just plain wore out. Will not lend this on out.- dutch
We got this Bissell pretty cheap at Walmart. We just needed
something for little spot cleaning jobs because we have two toddlers and really
didn't expect much out of it. Well, paint us impressed. We did our whole living
room with this thing and it did an excellent job. It was comparable to a Rug
Doctor. We always did a run-through with vinegar after the initial shampooing
to get up all the soap residue.
We've been very happy with our purchase. I would recommend this to anyone who
needs a reasonably-priced carpet cleaner that does an excellent job. You would
never walk into our home and tell we have two toddlers and two dogs by looking
at our carpet! Ė Sara Bear
