As soon as I received this deep cleaner I put it to use. It's very easy to put together and it was amazing yet disgusting how much it got out! It's VERY easy to use and clean. It has two tanks for clean and dirty water all you do is fill the tank and then it tells you when the clean water and cleaner is out and you remove the tank and simply dump it out! I am very impressed. However it runs out of water and cleaner VERY quickly. The bottle of cleaner they give you only lasted me a little over half of my area rug. I had to go buy more and only found an oxi cleaner that was in a larger size. All in all though I am very happy with my purchase!
This machine is lightweight and easy to handle. It does an excellent job of deep cleaning carpet and drawing the water out so it dries relatively quickly. I have a Dyson vacuum and even that misses the imbeded fur from one dog and 3 cats. I like that the brushes work in the same fashion as a vacuum cleaner rather than the circular spin of previous models so that it brushes the carpet reaching deep into the pile to clean. The only design flaw is that the water tank is rather small. There are several wash settings including a rinse option which helps you to customize your cleaning needs. Great product, very good price.
This is my second carpet cleaner from Bissell. I think that this is the best machine for your money. My floors always come out really clean and I have white carpet with 4 dogs and 3kids. So if I think it is good and can handle my family then it is good. I typically use my carpet cleaner for spot cleanings when ever the kids or dogs make a mess on the carpet. It is quick to set up and picks up dog hairs better than my vaccume cleaner.This model is better than my previous model since it has a seperate holder for cleaning solution which I know saves me time and money. I like to use just plain water to rince and this product saves me atleast one step each time I use it plus none of the soap is ever wasted this way.I know it heats up the water fast and it is unbelieveable how much cleaner my carpets get vs. before with the regular no heat model. My old machine lasted over 6years and that is a long time concidering how much I have used it.Thanks again Overstock for the great product for a great price.
after reading other reviews, my expectations were very high. While it does not replace professional cleaning, it is a good machine and makes cleaning up after my two german shepherds easier. I also have a Bissell SpotBot and that was not enough to clean up accidents in the house. I did quite a bit of research and found this machine to have a lot of features for its price. hint: if you have any cleaning fluid left in the reservoir when you finish, disconnect it - mine leaked onto the floor.
I had several difficult pet stains and was surprised that the carpet cleaner was able to get them up. The tank keeps water hot and aids in the cleaning. I only had to go over the carpet once! Ihighly recommend this carpet cleaner. You won't be disappointed.
I bought this for a christmas present for my mom. the first time we tried to use it water squirted out everwhere. i contacted overstock and they said i could return for a refund since this was the last one in stock. Thats fine except of course this was after the machine was assembled and the box discarded, it seemed to be too much trouble to find a box big enough to pack it then ship it back. I decided to take it to a repair shop but they said they dont even make this model anymore, probably will not be able to find the correct parts, so 5 months later i'm stuck with a broken machine. I never would have believed that overstock would sell such a poor quality item and have lost all faith in them, I wont shop here again.
I would never be without this machine again. I have three dogs who track in dirt and have the occasional accident and a through clean-up is so easy now. The machine is light and simple to use. I love the fact that the water tank has a bladder that keeps the dirty water separate from the clean. The only thing that isn't perfect is that I have large rugs and do have to fill up the tank a couple of times to clean the entire rug, but I think i would have to give up the lightness and portability if it were larger, so not a bad trade-off. I also like the great suction that allows the rugs to dry quickly.
