The BISSELL deep cleaner removes dirt, oils and stains, while the patented Scotchgard™ protection surrounds and remains on carpet fibres. Deep cleaning DOES NOT remove all mill-applied Scotchgard™ protection. When hot water extraction (or deep cleaning) occurs, some protection is diminished and/or masked by the cleaning surficants left behind. All deep cleaning machines/systems leave behind some residual cleaning solution - that is they do not extract all of the water/cleaning solution from the carpet. Now with the new BISSELL deep cleaner, Scotchgard™ protection remains on carpet fibres, keeping carpets looking good, for longer.
You do not have to "go through an extra step". The new BISSELL deep cleaning formula will apply Scotchgard™ protection to carpet fibres during the cleaning process. Applying an extra layer of Scotchgard™ protection (with the post cleaning sprayer) enhances resistance to dirt and tough stains. By using both products, mill-type protection is restored to carpet fibres, providing a greater level of protection against soiling and most common household stains.
No, the process will not seal dirt into the carpet. While no deep cleaning system can guarantee restoring the carpet to "new", the BISSELL ProHeat machines, along with the new deep cleaning formula, provide an advanced cleaning performance and now also offer the added benefit of Scotchgard™ protection.
Yes, the products are safe for use around children and pets when used as directed. Yes, children and pets can crawl on carpets after use. However, it is recommended to first let the carpet dry thoroughly.
Although mill applied protection treatments are durable, no protective treatment's performance lasts forever. Re-application of Scotchgard™ protection by a certified professional has always been recommended in order to boost protection to a carpet where mill treatment may have been slightly diminished through every day use and maintenance over time. Now, the recommended re-application of Scotchgard™ protection can be delivered through BISSELL carpet cleaning machines, using the BISSELL with Scotchgard formulas.
We cannot say exactly as it depends on how much the trigger is pressed during the cleaning process but approximately 2-3 average size rooms.When filling the clean water tank with water and formula, there are two measurement lines - one for water and one for formula (some formulas also have a measuring cap), to ensure you are using the correct amount of both. When cleaning large areas that require more than one tank, it is best practice to let the tank empty before refilling with fresh water and formula to ensure the mix is balanced to recommendations.
Any of the Wash & Protect, Wash & Refresh and the Wash & Remove ranges can be used in all upright machines, even non-bissell branded carpet cleaners. The formula for compact carpet cleaners / SpotCleaners is only for use in the portable or handheld carpet cleaners.
You will have a solution line on your tank or a measure cup to help with this.
If using either the Revolution 18583 or Revolution Pet 20666 in Express Mode, carpets can dry within the hour. For other Upright Carpet Cleaners without the Express Mode feature, we would advise approximately 3-4 hours depending on weather conditions.
The BISSELL ProHeat and ProHeat 2X series feature HeatWave Technology™ - Our HeatWave Technology™ cleverly redirects heat generated by the motor, which maintains the clean water with formula temperature during the cleaning process to optimise results.
For the most part, our machines are 1 h.p. and 6 amps. However, the cleaning and suction power is not directly related to horsepower or amp rating. BISSELL Deep Cleaning machines are so effective -- so powerful -- because of the design of our unique patented nozzle head and intake system.
When it comes to convenience, there is no comparison. Owning your own machine means you can clean when it fits your schedule -- you're not tied to someone else's schedule or a store's 24-hour return policy. Besides, spills and pet accidents don't happen on a planned basis and the sooner they're cleaned, the better. But beyond convenience, when you add up the continuous cost of professional cleaning of several machine rentals, the initial cost of a BISSELL Deep Cleaning machine is quickly recouped.
When using our full size upright deep cleaning machines (such as ProHeat 2X Select), typically a 10' x 12' room can be cleaned before the dirty water tank needs to be emptied and new cleaning formula and fresh water need to be added. With our smaller upright deep cleaning machines (such as InstaClean Compact), typically an 8' x 8' area can be cleaned before the dirty water tank needs to be emptied and new cleaning formula and fresh water need to be added. These amounts will vary based on how much water/solution you are releasing onto your cleaning surface.
It normally takes less than an hour to clean an average 12' x 12' room.
Yes, far less. That's because most rental units require the purchase of several chemicals to do the job of the recommended BISSELL formula. Then, of course, there's the cost of renting the machine itself.
No manufacturer of home deep cleaning machines is more experienced in the deep cleaning category than BISSELL. BISSELL Deep Cleaning machines are recognized for there high-quality standard, with durability and reliability engineered into each unit, every step of the way.
No. Some deep cleaners, such as the upright InstaClean Compact are better suited to cleaning lightweight, everyday messes such as spills, spots and small areas. When purchasing a deep cleaner to clean your entire home, it would be better to choose a full size deep cleaner, such as the ProHeat 2X.
For quick cleanup of spots and spills, BISSELL recommends handheld compact deep cleaners such as the BISSELL SpotClean or Little Green. These SpotCleaners spray, lift and remove tough spots and spills when they happen, packing professional-style deep cleaning into a hand-held, portable size. For larger spots and small area cleaning, BISSELL recommmend the SpotClean Pro or InstaClean Compact. The compact, streamline, but slightly larger cleaning path design of these products provide continuous, portable deep cleaning power for a variety of cleanups. They effectively deep clean spots, spills, high traffic and small areas including stairs, upholstery and auto interiors.
