We are a busy household with two children and two dogs (well one is ours, the other is a weekly play date). As you can imagine, our carpets see a great deal of traffic between the animals, working in and outside the home, and rolling a wheelchair around. Our house is mostly carpet, so we needed a reliable way to keep the floors clean and fresh.

We had owned a different Bissell model before; it was a little smaller and had less bristles. When it came time to replace that machine, we went with the next model up: the BISSELL ProHeat 2X Upright Deep Carpet Cleaner. We compared prices to other models with similar features and decided on this one because of the familiarity of the Bissell brand, the price, and the extra cleaning power in the added bristles. The machine also heats the water for you, so you don't have to worry about using hot water or having the water get cold when you want to get that extra cleaning power.

The machine weighs about 35 pounds and has a 12" cleaning path. It stands about 44" tall and includes a carrying handle on the front. The edges of the machine also have bristles, so you get the maximum use of the width of the cleaning path. Using the machine is simple--you fill the bladder of the water reservoir with clean tap water. Mix water and soap according to the directions in the soap reservoir. Plug it in, turn on the heat, and power it up. The machine itself is a little heavy, but its very manageable when pushing it across the floor. We found that we liked the weight because it seemed to really get a deep clean without feeling like a toy. You pull the trigger to spray the soap mixture and pulling back on the machine draws up the water. Continue the pull up the water until you know longer see soap or water come up through the top of the machine. There are options for deep cleaning, normal cleaning, light cleaning, or plain water rinse if you have carpets that are either really dirty or just need touched up.

The machine also comes with a pet stain/stairs/upholstery attachment with a long hose. The nozzle on the end of the hose has bristles for scrubbing, a trigger for spraying soap solution or plain water, and suction to pull the water back out of the carpet or fabric. The hose and attachment are stored on the machine for easy access.

I use this feature to clean a chair that has become "the dog's chair." Our dog sleeps in this chair every night, so her wear and tear made for some serious dirt and hair build up that I wanted to remove. Even if you don't have pets, this attachment is perfect for cleaning any kind of couch or chair that is fabric covered so you can remove normal dust or pollen.

My husband is also very meticulous about keeping a clean home, and he was able to clean our living room, dining room, and a downstairs bedroom carpet in about 2 hours, a few days before guests came for the Thanksgiving holiday. He cleaned the carpets after everyone was in bed so there would be no foot traffic and there would be at least 7-8 hours of drying time before anyone was up. The machine is a little noisier than a regular vacuum cleaner, but it did not disturb the family. The carpets were like brand new--bright and fluffy.

Overall, we are very pleased with this purchase; we would recommend this product to anyone looking to buy a new carpet cleaner, especially those with children and pets. You never know when someone is going to have an accident or spill something, so being able to easily pull out the carpet cleaner to save the carpet from disaster is a plus. Cleaning up the machine after its use is also very simple, and this product is easily stored like a regular vacuum cleaner. It is a great product at a reasonable price.

      Totally agree.

      The 2x might be the bog standard model in the range, but it still ranks as one of the best carpet cleaners for the domestic market.
