All-In-One Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner


I choose a light carpet when we built our house and with little kids it didn't stay clean for long. When I started looking for a carpet cleaner I wanted one with an attachment so I could do stairs, car upholstery, and individual spots as needed. I ...

ProHeat, attachment with a scrub brush, multiple clean settings, simple to use.

Small water tank.

Cheap in price and quality.


We purchased our Bissell ProHeat carpet cleaner for a great deal at BigLots. We had poor experiences with this same exact cleaner which a friend let us borrow, however the low price bait and switched us into buying one. We purchased ...

Cheap and works well if it is working.

Leaky solution tank and prone to breakdown.

Cleans well when new, Built to break Stay away!


I bought this thing thinking it was a good brand. Boy was I wrong! When you think of this brand name think of junk! If you are mechanically inclined and love to take things apart and fix them, this is the machine for you!!! This machine will ...

Few and far between! Cleans well between repairs.

Many and numerous! Something goes wrong every time you turn it on.

Leaks Leaks Leaks


This machine CAN do a good job and CAN make newer carpet look new again, but it's difficult to get to that point because the thing leaks like crazy. We had to pull out the soap dispenser and store it upside down to keep it from leaking all over the ...

CAN clean when it works, inexpensive, soap lasts a long time, looks nice

Leaks, impossible to clean, clunky, difficult to dump water without making a mess

One more horrible experience!


I bought this machine shortly after I had my carpet professionally cleaned. It was probably about 3 months before I opened the box and assembled it (that was difficult for me a little). The attachments fit onto the back which is a nuisance for someone ...

The machine cleaned well when it worked!

Designed poorly! Reviews on this machine and the company haven't been favorable! Caveat Emptor!

I like how it heats the water.

Left carpet flooded and unclean.

PIECE OF &^%#(*@ and then some.


I purchase this unit just two nights ago and used it last night for spring cleaning. There were a couple teeney pee stains from run off from my tiny little 4 lb. doggie's potty paper, and the usual dust accumulation... so rather than fork up $$$ for ...

Um... uh,uummmm.... it has wheels.

Shreds carpet, doesn't work, dumps dirty water.

Very Unpleasant Experience


Both my parents and myself have one of these units, I was given one for Christmas. I have a dog which sheds quite a bit, and no matter how much vacuuming I do, some hair is always in the carpet. Unfortunately, when this cleaner gets clogged, it never ...

When it works, it works good. Quick and cleans nicely.

Once it clogs, it never works right again because it's almost impossible to clean.

Bissell 7901-1 ProHeat steamer vacuum


Does a very good cleaning job, I would buy another one.

Little heavy not bad. Only complaint is the bissell soap smell gets old.
