I was motivated to write this Bissell Proheat 2x Review because of a gruesome discovery I made last week. It was time for us to clean our living room carpet when we found out that our old vacuum had broken down for good. Not having time to get a new one just yet, my friend offered to lend her Bissell Proheat 2x upright cleaner in the meantime. She showed me how to use it and after we were done cleaning the carpet, I found out just how ineffective our last cleaner was! When we used our old vacuum, there was always a noticeable difference between “before” and “after.” However, the results from my friend’s Bissell cleaner were worlds apart.
Our carpet looked ten times better than it did after using our previous cleaner. My mom thought I had a professional cleaner work on our carpet! But that’s not what shocked me. I dumped the dirty water tank and was surprised to see just how much gunk was sitting on our carpet. All this time, I thought our old vacuum was doing an excellent job of removing dirt. It was only then that I realized the amount of dust and allergens we were breathing in while we sat on our carpet. I guess our old vacuum breaking down was the best thing that happened to us.
I already ordered my own cleaner, and it should arrive in the next few days. In the meantime, however, I’d like to point out a few noteworthy features in this Bissell
Proheat 2x Review:
#1: The Unique Heating Action
What I liked about this cleaner was that it has a built-in heater that raises the temperature of the tap water that you fill into the tank. This was a feature that I didn’t know we needed in the first place. The hot water helps in the cleaning process because it breaks down stubborn dirt while sterilizing the carpet at the same time. It only occurred to me now that our old vacuum just didn’t cut it.
#2: Easy To Use
When I first laid my eyes on the Bissell Proheat 2X cleaner, I assumed that it would be difficult to use such a sophisticated-looking piece of equipment. Fortunately, setting it up was a breeze. You have to fill up the clean/dirty water tank with hot tap water, fill up the formula tank with the included cleaning solution, snap both of those tanks onto the cleaner, and you’re all set.
#3: Powerful Dirt-Busting Cycle
What happens in the cleaning process is that the Bissell Proheat 2X cleaner makes a wet pass over a given area to soften it before actually sucking in the dirt. After the given section of the carpet is treated and soaked with the heated formula, the dual brushes then do a deep clean, uprooting any dirt embedded in the carpet. This was probably why our old carpet looked about a decade younger!
All in all, I’m glad that we had to replace our vacuum. Not only did it inspire me to write this Bissell Proheat 2X review, but it also forced us to get a new cleaner that removed all the filth we never knew we were living with!
This vac is a bit different from the others reviewed here, but it definitely earned its place. Twelve rows of rotating brushes combined with lightweight and easy maneuverability make it a breeze to use.
