LOVE my Bissell Proheat Clearview!


My husband and I bought the Bissell Proheat Clearview at Walmart back in 2003. The price was ($160.00) From the very first time I used it? I LOVED it! It's very easy to use IF you (read and follow the directions). Not one time did this machine fail me....

I can't say enough good things about this steam cleaner!!!

Guaranteed to clean excess money from your wallet!


We bought a pro heat 2 years ago after our daughter told us how much she loved hers. She was right, it was neat to be able to steam our carpets by ourselves rather than scheduling a crew to come in to do it for us. Then our daughter's machine quit ...

Low price and it does a good job of cleaning the carpet.

Poor design is difficult to service and clogs easily and often.

I Love this Cleaner!


I purchased this cleaner because I have a toddler and a newborn and need to keep my carpets clean. The cleaner works wonderfully, gets out stains very well and it allows you to decide how wet to leave the carpets. I go over the carpet several times...

Cleans well, easy to use, easy to refill water/solution containers.

Solution is expensive.

Never worked right since I had it


This bulky heavy unit is just a stress increasing, gross machine. The last time I used it, here is what happened: Dog has accident on carpet; I get out the cleaner, fill it with clean water, soap, and suck up the mess. While putting it away, I pick it ...

Deep cleaning is a good idea ; this one is just not well made

Hose and bottom leak gross "backwash" after use ; stinks ; heavy, expensive, don't buy it

Buy a sack of replacement belts and a garden sprayer too.


Brings tears to my eyes I was taken to the cleaners by Bissell. The Bissell 1699-P is a fru ...

Good for the money


The proheat is a good unit. We've had it for about two years and use it about four times a year. Usu ...

Easy to use.Light weight.Good performance for the money.

Flimsy construction, belt housing inadequate.Belts are way to light duty.

Bissell Pro-Heat ClearView Plus Deep Cleaner is well worth the money.


This product was purchased for me by my husband as a gift at our local Wal-Mart for only $188. That was over a year ago. I was immediately impressed by the life it returned to my worn down carpets! Instead of the normal circular brush heads, this...

This product is simple to use and very efficient, and who can beat the price?

The water reservoir container and membrane can get very dirty and aren't easy to clean.
