Great Steam Cleaner. It's the best IMO!
on January 27, 2016
This is an awesome machine. Seriously for myself, I could not find anything I disliked about it. We just moved into our home and the carpet was old, in ok condition but very very dirty. It was quite mated down. There was a lot of sand and pet fur ground into the carpet along with stains. It was very dingy because of the Asphalt dust through out the whole carpet. Didn't feel very good under our bare feet either. Christmas was right around the corner so did a lot of research on Steam Cleaners. I found very good ratings on the Full Sized Bissell DeepClean Premier. So decided to get it.
I vacuumed very well with a Shark Professional Vacuum before starting, and treated all the stains I could find including pet stains I found with a special light with Natural Rapport Pet Stain and Odor Remover and also Genesis 950 . This machine was easy to put together and operate. It truly deep cleans and did a fabulous job. We used Procyon Extreme Carpet Cleaner for our cleaning solution which is Soap Free and Odor Free.
I love that this Bissell has a heater to keep the hot water continuously warm as I went very slow over the carpet. I also like that it has only one container and the clean water bladder is inside the container, so as the dirty water gets sucked up it goes around the bladder so you can easily empty that dirty water and again fill with fresh water and or some solution back into the empty bladder. Also makes it very easy to clean when finished. Never had any problems with leaks. I have used it 3 times now, one was a rinse. This Bissell has great suction also. I am 63 and was grateful that the Bissell though it was Full Size was easy to move around.
The carpet almost looks like new and all the stains are gone, the carpet is not flat anymore and it feels great under our feet and smells fresh. Can you believe that? We were told that the previous owner used a Rug Doctor before we bought the place. But why was there still so much sand, fur and stains still left in the carpet? Oh I also bought a Grandi Groom Carpet Rake which also helps to dig down into the fibers to loosen things up and at the end of steam cleaning to help lift up the fibers. Some time later, a local carpet cleaner guy came over and said: The carpet looks like a professional job. Well, the complement goes to the machine. It did a great Job.
This Bissell is very attractive and easy to use. Loved how it handles and clean up was a breeze. That whole top part and container can be rinsed off in the sink. At the very last I tipped the machine over so I could clean the bottom of the machine and that was it. If I could give it more stars I would. Thank you for reading this review. Hope it helped.
