This little product actually makes the pet stains worse most of the time! Dirty water somehow dumps back onto the carpet except then the spot is larger, darker and perfectly round. I've tried everything to correct a day/or compensate but it usually makes a bigger mess than what I started with. You've been warned.
The spot bot works maybe too well? You will probably realize your whole carpet needs a shampoo. Wishing I just had a full carpet shampooer instead of just a spot bot since this leaves a white circle when done. Otherwise, easy to use and appears to be effective. Cleaning solution has to be Bissell so be aware of the extra costs you will have.
This is a great little cleaner but leaves the carpet very wet unless you push down when it is sucking the water back up. Even then it will leave the carpet damp. Putting a hand towel down & stepping on it will get the last of the moisture up. Worth it it you only have one small spot that's not worth pulling the big Bissell Upright carpet cleaner out. If you have several areas to clean or a large stain you don't want to use this.
I bought this as a wedding gift for friends with three dogs. I have a refurbished model purchased here years ago and I love it. I have seven cats and two dogs so "accidents" happen. It cleans carpets so well in a short amount of time, leaving them clean and really dry. Love the "set it and forget it" so I don't have to sit over it while it is cleaning. The brush option is great for cleaning spots that the head cannot get into. This is a must if you have pets.
Have 3 small Shih Tzu females dogs that I love dearly and I live in the mountains, so we mostly only go outside to potty or short walks. sometimes, it is a hit and miss. and area rugs catch it. This machine is the neatest trick on the market. It does exactly what it advertises. Come to my home and you would never know I have pets, thank you for the quick service also.
with two house dogs this is a necessary tool, even nice puppies have accidents. This is the real deal - easy to use- directions simple- parts all go together very nicely, works efficiently and quick. You just fill one side container with water and cleaner product - set the machine on top of the stained area and turn it on - viola ! it dampens, brushes and vacumns up the mess and puts it in the holding container on the other side - you can clean several areas with one container of fluid . I have used it on some old stains and it worked too.
Must have for those with animals living in the house. Easy to use, great clean up, and simple to operate. I'm so glad I purchased this. I have a full size (heavy) rug cleaner and what a pain it was to haul that around to clean up small spots!
