In order to assemble, you need to get down under the support handle and angle up your screwdriver from the bottom. And because the screw wells are so deep, you need a Phillips screwdriver with at least a six-inch shaft that is thin enough to fit under the support handle and into the deep wells.
All of my screwdrivers were either too thick or too short, so I ended up having to buy a special screwdriver just to put this together. Not a big deal if you already own one, but I am still astounded that Bissell thought that behind the support handle was a logical place to put screw mounts. Apparently, this is pretty standard with Bissell deep cleaners, but you have to wonder why.
So! Rant aside, once it is all together, what do you have? Something pretty darn nice.
This is the first carpet cleaner I have ever owned. In the past, I have always rented the clumsy Rug Doctor from the local grocery store, and then only when I was moving apartments so I could get my deposit back. But I am older now and have allergy issues, and so I am happy to make carpet cleaning more of a regular activity.
The Bissell is smaller and more compact than the rentals. It is more like a bulked-up vacuum cleaner, allowing for easy storage and maneuverability.Read more ›
Aside from the odor and carpet stains, her puppy had also pretty much ruined a microfiber sofa and chair in the living room (she hasn't yet learned that wise pet owners are better off with leather upholstery and hardwood/tile floors).
When I got this pet vac, I knew immediately where to try it out -- we set it up at her apartment and let it rip. First we pre-treated some areas (using the pre-treat product included in the package), then we steam cleaned all the carpet. This machine is AMAZING. The amount of steam and circulation that happens is incredible. The carpet was steaming hot to the touch after the cleaner passed over it. On some tougher spots (like a plant which had a pretty serious pee ring all around it), we did a couple passes. Bottom line, the carpets were cleaned, the apartment smelled better. Amazing!
Next we did the upholstery. Getting the spot cleaner hose to work was a little tricky, so I suggest you read the instructions first, because we definitely should have. However, we were also able to seriously reduce the pee smell on the microfiber upholstery, and also remove the stains. Unfortunately, since pee stains on cushions go way deeper than the surface upholstery, the smell came back (a little bit) over the next couple days, but it's very slight and we may try to re-clean and see if that makes it even better.
I guess the one 'con' to this unit is tied to a pro -- the one about how much steam it puts out.Read more ›
I was amazed the first time I used this in the living room. Even though I cleaned it not long ago with my old carpet cleaner, the amount of dirt and hair I was able to get out with this new one was amazing. It didn't leave long strands of hair all over the room like my old Bissell did.
The best part is that it's a portable cleaner too. You simply step on a pedal and the center part lifts right up, along with the hose and the power cord.
I waited a month to review it. I wanted to try several areas of the house, and I can honestly say I love everything about the Bissell Lift-Off Deluxe Pet Upright Deep Cleaner.
I typically use the machine once every 3 months or so. After about a year, it completely stopped releasing solution into the carpet and the spinner nozzle that is supposed to indicate an empty tank stopped spinning even on a full tank. I took it to a repair shop and had the belts replaced for about $30, and it worked again for a couple of uses, but the problem eventually happened again. When I searched for tips online, I found out that this is a common problem with these machines. The suction still works well and the spinning brushes are very effective, so I resorted to buying a cheap machine to distribute the solution and then switch to this one for the suction.
I regret having to leave a negative review because when it works, it really does a great job. However, I can't see spending $200 every 1-2 years to replace a unit that fizzles after about 4 uses.
