A "High Maintenance" Machine that Cleans


In the realm of describing certain members of the human species, I am sure you have heard of the term “high maintenance”. In the world of carpet steam vacs, I would give that honor to this Bissell machine. This is actually my ...

Cleans carpets very well ; water heater ; separate detergent dispenser

Repair prone ; needs lots of preventive maintenance ; short time between fills ; design of water tanks

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!

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.

Exercise and Clean Carpets


My wife and I were looking for a good carpet cleaner after spending about $100 on a professional cleaning. We had tried a hoover that my mother had, which I found to be small hassle due to the water container. It was somewhat cumbersome to replace when...

Cleans carpets well, heated water.

Weight, small tank capacity, leaves behind lint.

You have to work hard at this one.


Ever wish that these companies that make these products would think about the consumer first before they think about making money. They only have one thing in mind and that is taking your money. Well, while this product is very nice and looks like it ...

Nice try, new concept,

Not hot enough, only can work well on new carpet, clogs up. plastic parts.

This'll Get The Spots and Stains Out - No Problems Yet For Us...


I live in a house with little carpeting. Most of our flooring is covered by hardwood, ceramic, or laminate products. Only the stairways and landings and a small portion of our basement is covered with carpet. BUT, with 2 kids, 3 cats, a messy husband ...

Reliable, good heating power, nice powerful brushes, many attachments included, competitively priced.

Too large for stairs.
