That depends on how much water you use. For normal carpet that didn't have stains it took less than an hour and for the heavily stained areas it took about 4 hours for it to be entirely dry.

The Bissell shampoo that comes with it is a good product. You cannot beat Rug Doctor though for the cat and dog product. It is a tough cleaning product. Doesn't take much of either, it's more about the hot water you use than anything and being patient enough to go over it a couple times to get up excess water.

Question

Will it take smells out along with dirt?

I just moved into a rental house. I didn't notice it when I first looked at the place, but after I moved in, i started to notice a SMELL - Verizon guy said there was the stench of cats in the house, but I have no idea what it is, 'cause I've never had a cat. Anyway, I've been successful at eliminating that smell in the rest of the house, BUT the bedroom is the only room with carpet, and the smell is still in there - it stinks! I've shampooed - with cans - the carpet in the bedroom 4 times since I moved in - month and a half ago - but I cannot get rid of that smell. The carpet in the bedroom also gets dirty VERY easily, so I actually JUST tonight purchased this Bissell, but now somebody's telling me nothing will get the smell out short of ripping up the carpet and sanding the floors, etc. - which I can't do 'cause I'm renting. He also said steam cleaning will make the smell worse! I'm just wondering if this Bissell - since it is deep cleaning - will rid the bedroom of the SMELL along with the dirt???

no, once a cat urine odor is in your carpet, not much will eliminate it completely. If you can visually see stains, you can try injecting vinegar with a syringe right into the stain and that is supposed to get rid of the urine odor.,

I have had cats before and I know of the smell you speak of. I don't know if the Bissell will get the smell out completely. I would try using the cleaner for pets and pet odors. I saw it at Walmart next to the carpet cleaners. Bissell makes it so it's safe for your cleaner. They also have cleaners with scents in them. I have the spring breeze one. Maybe try the pet odor one first and then use the scented one. Hope this works for you!

I bought this because I signed a lease for an apartment where I felt the past renter had a dog. It did pull the odor out that is why I am so impressed by this cleaner. The brushes lifted out the dog hair that was not visible on the carpet's surface. When I saw this I was very glad I cleaned the carpet before I moved my furniture in. The next day the rooms were fresh and the apartment had no trace of pet odor! I poured down baking soda and carpet deodorizer then vaccuumed. I am ready to move in with confidence!

I agree with whoever told you water makes the odor come out.
Best thing would be to remove the carpet, but since you are renting you may want to contact your landlord.
