I have carpet on the upper level of my home and… shhhhh don’t tell…. I haven’t had them cleaned in a long time.
They are also beige… yeah. With two boys, you can imagine the dirt and stains.
So when I was offered the opportunity to try out the ProHeat 2X Deep Cleaner by BISSELL, I told myself that the universe was trying to tell me something about my mess.
I admit, I was a little intimidated by the monster of a machine after I put it together. But after reading the thorough instructions, using the ProHeat 2x Deep Cleaner is fairly easy.
Warning: do not use this carpet cleaner if you’re not completely awake. I hadn’t had my second cup of coffee when I tried it for the first time and managed to spill water all over the floor as I was trying to fill the tank.
I decided to use the Fiber Cleansing solution… um yeah, the carpets are dirty!
The solution goes into a separate compartment in the back of the machine, while the hot water goes in the front base. The ProHeat 2x Deep Cleaner also has a built-in hot water heater for maximum cleaning. The machine boasts dual brushes and heating system for a clean you can see, and 12 cleaning rows of DirtLifter® Powerbrushes that helps remove deep down dirt.
The cleaner was easy to assemble and easy to prepare for use. With steady strokes back and forth, as the instructions told me to do, using the ProHeat 2x Deep Cleaner was pretty simple. I had to hang onto the long cord so as not to get in the way.
I was amazed at how much dirt was pulled from the carpet, even though I had just vacuumed first! Using the machine is like vacuuming, except don’t tip the cleaner over or else water will spill!
There are also attachments for carpet on stairs or upholstery, which I didn’t try yet. Clean-up is fairly easy as well but you’ll need to have a screwdriver handy so you can clean the brushes and you’ll need to rinse the plastic pieces.
All in all, my carpet looks a lot cleaner! I’m happy with the ProHeat 2X Deep Cleaner. Tada!
