We have three dogs and we also used to foster dogs for a rescue. This little machine comes in very handy for those little accidents. I love that it has it's own heating mechanism, that combined with hot water makes it a great little deep carpet cleaner.
I have owned this now for probably a year and used it very frequently as I have 4 small dogs. It is simple to use, does a large area of the rug at one time before having to empty the container and I appreciate the heating factor that keeps the water hot. I have owned other brands and they don't compare to the cleaning abilities of this Bissell.
This is a decent carpet cleaner for small spots. It would be a complete hassle to do a complete room with this thing unless the room was very small. For the price and the effort-I can do without it. The time it takes to whip this out, fill the tanks doesn't seem worth it for a small spill but b/c the tank is so small doing a whole room would require lots of changing of the tanks. It saved me once so I wont knock it completely.
The Bissell 25A3 ProHeat Deep Cleaner is a wonderful product. It has pleasantly lived-up to my expectations. It has worked just as well as other much more expensive deep cleaners I've owned in the past. I can honestly say that I'm quite happy with this particular purchase.
I would recommend this item for anyone needing to clean small segments of carpeting at a time. It did a great job removing even old stains and dirt and made my carpeting smell wonderful (the small bottle of cleaner was included). However, if you need to clean a large amount of carpeting, it would take an extraordinary amount of time to get through, because the compartment holding cleaner and water is just small enough that it needs to be emptied continuously. I actually didn't mind, however, because the performance of this item was outstanding, and I will just have to take a section of carpeting at a time until it's all done.
I have a toddler and a newborn, so my carpet and rugs get pretty dirty. I've been spending about $** every 6 months getting my carpets cleaned in the past. After using this, I realized how much and can save by doing it myself. And it really does work great, just as well as the professionals.
This machine is marketed as "pet friendly" but is designed so that the belt moving the roller will easily stretch out due to pet hair and then the rollers will no longer work to pick up dirt. To get the roller working, a replacement part must be purchased. Additionally, brushes on side of machine hold pet hair. The fuse is easy to trip requiring you to turn off the machine, look up the manual and reset it. Care must be used to thoroughly set up the parts which are easy to not set up properly. Do not purchase, a better machine must be available.
i bought the previous model of the wet vac back in 2005. it still worked but i just wanted a newer one, so the 'old' one was 8 years old and still working! i like the built in heater, no one wants to boil water and pour. love the solution and clean water go into the same area, one less suction to worry about. there is a filter in thewater tank to block the big stuff, its outlined by a red 1.5 rectangle... check that frequently to make sure its not clogged. also love because the under bristles move out to wipe/clean that area... dog hair, carpet fibers build up so that a bonus for this model and the front clear plastic shield that moves the water from the carpet to the bin can be removed for easy rinsing... the best! anything that touches the mess should be able to get clean and on this model it does.
I am pleased with this purchase. I have used it regularly and it has really made a difference in the cleanliness of my carpets. It is easy to use and has an easy clean up system. It does however have a tendency to pick up lots of lint from the carpets which sometimes leaves a mess for you to clean up and out of the cleaner afterwards, but that could just be because my carpets are new and or really inexpensive. Overall, I would definitely recommend this item to others.
