ruthie Hi all carpet cleaners use an appropiate carpet solution or namely carpet cleaner. Is a soap based solution with special cleanning agents to protect the machine at the same time that it cleans. Some people use clorox, and othe houese cleanning solutions in them, but eventually it will brake the machine . So it doesn't use just water and it does use a special solution very affordable.

I used it on a berber carpet and it did really well. However, when you need to remove urine, you need to also treat with vinegar which which breaks down the urine odor for dog's and cat's. I would recommend using a steam cleaner (or this model), let it dry and then spray with white vinegar and let it air dry. See if that does the trick. I know that when we no longer smell the scent, animals can. One think I like about this cleaner is that it has a clear suction device so you can clearly see when it is clean.

No clue on the amps but it doesn't have a heated dry feature. It really doesn't need one. The suction alone pulls most of the moisture out of the carpet and, this is the best part, the carpet doesn't attract dirt again as I have experienced with many carpet cleaners.

I love this thing!

I don't think so. This machine comes with a small bottle of Bissell 2X concentrated cleaner, made especially for this machine. It's enough to fill the soap receptacle about 10 times. The soap is also available at Walmart in a larger bottle, and you can have it shipped for free with a $45 order. It also has a nice scent and isn't too expensive.

Keep plenty of genuine BISSELL 2X Fiber Cleansing Formula™ on hand so you can clean and protect
whenever it fits your schedule. Always use genuine BISSELL deep cleaning formulas. Non-BISSELL
cleaning solutions may harm the machine and will void the warranty.
