The Bissell ProHeat cleaning systems are specially designed to deep clean your carpets quickly and easily with steam. The company manufacturers have multiple variations of the classic ProHeat system, each with a specific purpose. Two, for example, are specially designed for homeowners with pets: They feature accessory tools that make cleaning up pet stains easy and effective.
Bissell has seven appliances that bear the ProHeat name. The appliances, all variations on the original, include the:
Each of these deep cleaning systems has a slightly different focus. You should determine what your Bissell deep cleaning system will be used for most often before you make a purchase.
The classic ProHeat Deep Cleaning System can be used on carpet, upholstery and stairs. If you were to purchase this directly from the manufacturer, the ProHeat Deep Cleaning System will cost about $150. The ProHeat Pet Deep Cleaning System, a twist on the original, can be used on carpet, upholstery, and stairs, like the classic, but, unlike the classic, it is also rated to be used on bare floors. Its cleaning path is 5-1/2 inches wider and seven pounds heavier than the classic, which makes it more difficult to maneuver. Both of these appliances have a three-inch stain tool. The ProHeat Pet will cost you about $10 more if you purchase it on the manufacturer's website.
The ProHeat 2X Deep Cleaning System is similar to the ProHeat Deep Cleaning System, except that it uses a ten-row brush for cleaning instead of a six-row brush. It is only one pound heavier than the classic model, but its cleaning path is three inches wider. On the manufacturer's website, this appliance will cost about $200. The ProHeat 2X Healthy Home system features a brush with 12 rows for cleaning, the standard three-inch stain tool, an additional tool specially designed for stairs. Unlike the other versions, the Healthy Home comes with a multi-allergen fiber formula for cleaning. This variant will cost about $280 from the manufacturer. The ProHeat 2X CleanShot, which costs about $280, is nearly identical to the Health Home except that it can be used on bare floors (the Healthy Home is not rated for bare floors) and its standard cleaning formula is a professional deep cleaning formula.
The ProHeat 2X Select Deep Cleaning System features a brush with 12 rows for cleaning, a three-inch stain tool, a six-inch stair tool, and a professional deep cleaning formula. This system, which will cost you about $250, has surround suction, which allows you to clean alongside walls and furniture. The ProHeat 2X Select Pet Deep Cleaning System, which costs around $250, is nearly identical to the ProHeat 2X Select Deep Cleaning System, except that it includes a six-inch pet eraser tool and a deep reach pet tool, accessories exclusive to this model. These tools make cleaning up after pets a breeze.
Once you've determined the type of cleaning system that you need, you are ready to make your purchase and begin deep cleaning. The Bissell website offers user guides to consumers who have lost the one that comes with the product upon purchase. If you want to search for a user guide, have your product's model number available. The model number can be found on the white label that is usually located on the back of the deep cleaning system; the model number is near the top of the label, above the barcode.
Before beginning any deep cleaning, you should remove all furniture from the room. If you are going to take the time to deep clean your carpet, you might as well take the time to clean the entire carpet (that is, of course, unless you are cleaning a specific stain, like from a pet). Then you can prepare your deep cleaning system by filling its tank with warm tap water. Fill the cleaning formula reservoir with cleaning formula. Once you've prepared your system, set it for the type of surface you will be cleaning, plug it in, turn on the power heater, and begin cleaning. As you clean, move forward and backward in slow, even movements. When you're finished, empty your tank into the sink and rinse it out.
