With 3 kids, 3 dogs, 3 cats a bunny and a fish, we know dirt. 🙁 We also know that we need quality machines that are easy to use and do the job right the first time because well, we are so busy our time is limited and valuable to us. I know that when I turn to Bissell that I am getting a quality product that is going to get the job done and that is exactly what I get every time I use my Bissell ProHeat 2X Pet Deep Cleaner.
As you can imagine, MomMomOnTheGo has a busy household with all our little ones and pets. I need to know that when an animal or even one of our little ones makes a mess of some type, that I am using a machine that is getting the deep down dirt out, so that the house is clean for everyone. I am confident that when I am using my Bissell Deep Cleaner that I am getting that deep down dirt and grime out. I feel great after I have gotten the mess cleaned up and confident in the cleanliness left behind.
This amazing ProHeat 2X Pet Deep Cleaner has a full-size extractor, which is perfect for picking up tough pet stains, odours, and tracked-in dirt. It also has a 12 amp motor. Included with the ProHeat 2X Pet Deep Cleaner is a Turbo Brush hand tool, spraying crevice tool, 4″ pet stain tool, 3″ tough stain tool for cleaning upholstery and stairs, starter chemical, 16 oz. Tough Stain pre-treatment, and 16 oz. Pet Odor stain remover. Everything you need to get the job done from crevice to corner of the room.
This Deep Cleaner has 12 rows of rotating DirtLifter® Powerbrushes to help remove deep down dirt. I love that it has a 2-in-1 one gallon tank to keep clean and dirty water separate, which means only one trip to the sink to empty and fill.
My dream has come true with the Automatic tool conversion because you just flip the switch for above-floor cleaning. I cannot tell you how much I love not having to mess around with a machine to switch from the floor cleaner to using the attachments. Just one switch and away I go.
As if all the above features were not enough, the ProHeat 2X Pet Deep Cleaner also has:
* Microban antimicrobial protection to help fight odour-causing bacteria, mould and mildew. Very important especially when cleaning up pet and children messes especially when used in the kid’s play areas.
* Smart Mix solution control has a convenient custom-clean dial on handle to control solution flow with ease.
* Surround suction edge-sweep brushes.
* Built-in heater heats hot tap water up to 25° hotter for maximum cleaning and you can turn the heat on or off as needed. I personally put my hand under the water as I sprayed it from one of the tools and it is definitely hotter than other units I have used in the past. The water was not warm, it was hot. However the water temperature was not a scalding hot at all. I would still consider the temperature of the water to be a safe zone in my opinion.
* 9′ hose length; 30′ cord length for a long reach. I was able to get a large recreation room cleaned without changing where the unit was plugged in. Loved this feature.
* The unit weighs approximately 26 lbs which is lightweight in my books. With my herniated discs in my back, I can still maneuver this unit without suffering from any discomfort afterward. As you can imagine this is an extremely important feature for me.
Here are a few more important pieces of information and answers to common questions about the ProHeat 2X Pet Deep Cleaner as answered by Bissell Canada.
What is deep cleaning and why is it worthwhile?
Deep cleaning is a carpet-cleaning process that loosens and removes most harmful dirt and ground-in grit, which may be deep down in your rugs and carpets. Not only does it protect the investment you have in your home, but parents of young children, pet owners and allergy sufferers may find deep cleaning especially beneficial.
What features should I consider when I purchase a deep cleaner?
It is important to choose a machine that is easy to use and fits your needs. Specific features to consider are: heater, brushes, design, power rating, number of cleaning attachments, styling, weight and warranty.
Why do I need a built-in heater on my deep cleaner?
The BISSELL ProHeat with a patented built-in heater heats the water and solution– just like the pros. The water and solution travel through the heater before being sprayed onto your carpet. BISSELL provides continuous heated cleaning by raising the temperature of your hot tap water by up to 25 degrees. Other systems use exhaust air from the motor to achieve “heated cleaning.”
Are the BISSELL DirtLifter PowerBrushes safe for my carpeting?
The BISSELL Research and Development department tests products on a wide variety of the most common types of carpeting for durability and wear. All of our cleaning products are proven safe, gentle, and effective on cleaning carpets. Cleaning effectiveness is dependent upon multiple factors, including brush engagement. The DirtLifter Powerbrush system is a crucial element in our cleaning process and a key factor behind our statement of unbeatable cleaning. BISSELL brushes rotate like your everyday vacuum cleaner. They are powerful enough to get the deep down dirt, yet gentle enough to use every day.
Will I remove the soil and stain protection that was applied at the mill when I use an upright deep cleaner on my carpet?
Carpet protection applied at the mill typically wears down with heavy foot traffic over time and with everyday cleaning, including deep cleaning. To help restore this important protection, BISSELL offers deep cleaning formulas with Scotchgard protector and an applicator to apply Scotchgard protector with the same materials used by carpet mills. This offers extra protection against dirt and tough stains to keep your carpet looking good longer.
How is my carpet warranty affected?
Until now, to maintain your Scotchgard protector 5 year limited stain warranty you were required to hire a professional cleaner. By using your BISSELL ProHeat with BISSELL formulas containing Scotchgard protector every 12 months, your carpet’s warranty from 3M remains in effect. No other deep cleaning system can do this for you. Refer to the Scotchgard protector warranty for details.
