I sent the BISSELL PROHeat 2x Upright Deep Cleaner over to my parent’s place (Merry Christmas Mom!), where my sister gave it a trial run. This is what she had to say about her experiences with the machine:
I was planning on cleaning the carpet in the basement, but then our dog proceeded to poop on the carpet in the living room, step into it, and walk around the room tracking dog doo all over. There were brown stains all over the carpet. It was… it was just gross. It’s best if I stop describing it. Basically what I’m saying is, it was time to clean the living room carpets. We have a smaller shampooer the Bissell Little Green Machine, but this time I needed something for a much bigger area. I love our Little Green machine for quickly cleaning up small spots, but this was a job that needed something bigger. If we didn’t already have the Bissell ProHeat 2X in the house, I likely would have rented a carpet cleaner or possibly called someone to come clean the carpets for me, as photos simply cannot convey how disgusting this dog mess was.
|The culprit. Cute but messy.|
The Bissell ProHeat 2X is SUPER easy to use. Add water, shampoo, turn it on and wait one minute for it to heat up, and you’re ready to go. Manoeuvring it around was easy and the carpets came out brilliantly. It was light and just as easy to move around as a vacuum, which is a big plus compared to rental shampooers. Those things are hard to lug around. The results were just as good as the big old rental units. No more stains, and spots that were worn down before look so much better now. I’m really trying to think of how to explain how easy this was. It’s idiot proof, easy to move around, and works amazingly well. The photos don’t do justice to what a difference cleaning with the Bissell ProHeat 2x made. I wish the photos were better. The pattern of the carpet kind of camouflages the dirt to begin with.
Filling and emptying the Bissell ProHeat 2X was easy, and cleaning out the water tank afterwards was as simple as giving it a quick rinse. The dirty water that came out of that thing was horrific. I know it’s a ‘high traffic area’ that sees a lot of dirt from grandkids and muddy dog paws, but dear God I never expected this filth to come out of our carpets.
|Brown muddy filthy water. This was in our carpets? Yuck.|
The room looks great! No more stains and needless to say, our family room smells much better.
I am now planning on doing the basement, drum room, my room, and Mom and Dad’s room in the next week. It may sound silly, but I actually feel eager to clean the carpets now.
