can you use this machine to clean area rugs?

answer 1
Yes. But I would be careful not to oversaturate an area rug, because the underside would soak up a lot of water.
answered 3 months, 2 weeks ago
By

answer 2
Yes but I recommend weighing down the corners if the rug is lightweight because the machine will pull back the corner when you pull the machine back to yourself

The brush operates all of the time, forward and back. The only time it stops is when you push the handle into the upright "locked" position.

What is the carpet drying time?

The carpet was dry within two hours! The machine really has a lot of suction to remove dirt and water.

answer 2
Hi Schicky, great question. The drying time can vary depending on the environment, how much water is put down and how many passes are made to suction up the water. This unit has our strongest suction power so you should see shorter drying times.

will this machine go back and forth, or only one way(#86T3)

answer 1
Here's how it works:
1. Push forward and squeeze trigger to dispense cleaner solution onto carpet. Squeeze and push at the same time.
2. Pull backward over same area while still squeezing on trigger.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until carpet is clean.
4. Go forward and back one or more times without squeezing trigger to completely remove any liquid from carpet.

Bissel does not recommend cleaning anything but carpet. The machine would operate on tiles floors, but may not pick up all the water used, and probably spin water all over the place. I wouldn't try it myself.

does this get out the reddish/orange dog/cat vomit stains?

answer 1
It will, if you're willing to go over and over the stains. I recommend pretreating with a citrus degreaser, or an enzyme cleaner such as Out! They also have an oxy-cleaner, which works better for food stains. If all else fails, use Dawn dish soap. That little trick has saved my carpet countless times!

By
Elrah
answer 2
This machine has amazing suction and great cleaning with its large brushroll. Removing it really depends on what the stain is, as acid in vomit can permanently stain carpet fibers. To help remove organic stains like the one you're describing, try pretreating it with enzyme cleaning action like BISSELL Professional Pet Stain and Odor Remover

Question

How heavy and is it hard to push around?

I am 71 and need a machine that is not too heavy for me to work with. MY hoover carpet cleaner is too heavy for me. Like to ask all of you if this machine would be easier to handle?

During operation, this machine is really easy to use. It has 2 large wheels which make it very maneuverable. The only difficulty I would see for you would be loading or unloading the machine, or taking it up/down stairs.

HI Grannie! This is a heavier unit coming in at 40 pounds but it is by far our best deep cleaner. I think you would do better with our PowerForce DeepCleaner that weights 11 pounds and is very easy to use!
