PowerSteamer - NOT A STEAMER!


I purchased this machine in hopes of cleaning the carpets in the house I recently moved into, and I hoped to destroy dust mites and other allergens using the "steam" option.

Cleans decently for normal, traffic areas

Got good on deep stains and lacks steam to kill allergens

A fantastic steam cleaner


I am glad I choose this steam cleaner. I read several reviews on different models and brands. This steam cleaner had the best reviews for the price and features. I bought this cleaner for $129.00. It has the smart mix, upholstery tools, and cleans...

Cleans as good as a commercial steam cleaner, but much easier to use

The upholstery attachment keeps falling off while your cleaning the carpet

My New Best Friend


What a dream machine. Anyone who has kids or pets should highly think about investing in one of these machines. It is quite a bit of money ($210) but it does live up to its standards! In fact it comes with a 1 year warranty! As long as you use it for...

It can clean everywhere

Bissell Powersteamer Pro


I purchased the Bissell Powersteamer Pro and was disappointed by it's overall performance. I spent almost $300.00.

There's ONE pro, it cleans floors well -not carpets like it's supposed to

There are too many cons to list in 15 words or less

Great for regular use, but not the best on tough stains


We decided to buy this product shortly after moving in to our apartment. Our living room has light carpet and we realized soon how quickly the carpet was going to get dirty. My husband works in a factory, so his shoes are filthy. The first month or so,...

one year warranty, easy to use

doesn't get all the bad stains out

Out out damn spot: The Bissell PowerSteamer Carpet Steamer


I?m not sure why they call this a steamer - the water doesn?t get hot at all. Nonetheless, the Bissell PowerSteamer Steam Cleaner does a great job for a reasonable amount of money.

Cleans very well

I Wish I Had Bought this Bissell Powersteamer Years Ago!


When I sat down and really thought about the price of having a professional clean your carpets,compared to the price of carpet steamers today, the sensible choice was to buy my own machine. I did look at several brands, and settled on the Bissell...

upright design, cleans well, water tanks easy to use

heavy when tanks are on, handle design is awkward

It's the little things that irritate me


Don't get me wrong this is a great cleaner and works wonderfully it's just the little problems that irritate me.

Deep cleans, makes floors look great

small things tend to go wrong

Power Steamer Pro get mixed review


The upright Power Steamer pro is a big improvement over my old Bissell canister style that hooked up to the faucet. I love the push method, it's almost like vacuuming. The transparent cover allows you to see the cleanliness of the water as it is...

cleans well, can control cleaning solution

controls in poor position, hard to lift and carry
