When it comes to cleaning your carpets, most people would opt for a professional carpet cleaning company to get the job done. But now you can get the job done yourself. With the amount of carpet cleaners on the market today, there are plenty of options that deliver quality results without the expensive price tag. In fact, one of those carpet cleaners that aims to do just that is the Bissell ProHeat 2X Premier.
In this BISSELL Proheat 2X Premier Carpet Cleaner review, we’ll look at the performance and value of model 47A23.
Pros of the Bissell Proheat 2X 47A23
Cons of the Bissell Proheat 2X 47A23
Bissell’s deep cleaning formulas, which are added to the water you put in the cleaner, are about $15 to $20 for a standard 48 ounce container. You’ll pay several dollars more for cleaners that have Febreeze in it, as well as a higher price for cleaners that neutralize pet odors like urine and poop. You’ll also pay more if the cleaning detergent contains Scotchguard. You could save money by using Hoover or another brand’s 2X cleaning detergent, but never, ever use bleach, since this can damage your carpets and the carpet cleaner’s metal components.
On the upside, the 2X cleaning formulas function like high efficiency washer detergent in that little is needed each time you clean the carpets. On the downside, the two in one tank design for the Bissell Proheat means you have to add as much soap to clean a whole room as you do to spot clean a few trouble spots. Do not use this carpet cleaner on wood floors – the combination of heat and humidity can warp wood floors.
