Enjoy Professional-grade Clean
When it comes to carpet and soft floor coating cleaning, there is virtually no task the Bissell 86T3 can’t accomplish. Designed to give carpets professional clean, this model delivers outstanding cleaning performance hard to beat even for rental cleaning machines.
At 12 amps of power, the unit boasts a really strong suction power and can efficiently suck out all the dirt, filth, and debris sitting deep in the carpet pile. Along with that, it also effectively sucks up moisture, leaving your carpets clean and dry in a single pass. Though a 10.5-inch brush head is not the widest out there, given the cleaning result you’ll achieve in one go, you will still be able to cover vast areas pretty fast.
In addition to stunning cleaning power, the Bissell 86T3 is distinguished by its oversized 1.75-gallon water and solution tanks and 25-feet power cord that will allow you to cover large areas and open spaces without a need for a refill and no extension cords required. All of the above makes this carpet cleaner just a perfect choice for big multi-story houses, office premises, showrooms, stores, mini-hotels, hostels, and other big carpeted areas.
Overall, this Bissel cleaner is solidly built and definitely designed to last. It has hefty wheels for smooth propelling over soft surfaces and a collapsible handle for convenient use and hassle-free maneuverability. The only gripe you might have is a pretty heavy unit weight that will take you some effort to carry it around. Yet, given its intended use, oversized liquid tanks, and powerful performance, heavyweight construction is fully justified.
Tough Spots Have no Chances
As we’ve already mentioned, the Bissell 86T3 is a cleaning wizard. While the mix of cleaning solution and water loosens the dirt, an agitated DirtLifter brush literally scrubs into the carpet to break down and remove the ground-in filth and deeply sitting debris. Moreover, it perfectly fights and takes away funky smells and bad odors caused by pets' vomiting and urine or kids' spilling some drinks and foods.
Apart from a built-in hefty main brush, the model also comes complete with a flexible hose and a tough-stain tool to tackle the most stubborn and old-time stains. Six inches wide, this smaller brush will help you remove nasty spots and stains from stairs, upholstery, and car seats without having to scrub away at a stain for hours while a flexible hose will make cleaning in hard-to-reach areas and tricky corners a breeze.
Simply put, the Bissell 86T3 is a mighty and professionally performing heavy-duty carpet cleaner that will ideally suit both home and commercial needs.

A Cleaning Workhorse
The Hoover FH50150 carpet cleaner is an excellent assistant in cleaning your house. The cleaning efficiency this device provides is truly impressive and is achieved by using different cleaning modes covering the most of (if not all) the surface types in your home. This cleaner device makes it easy to clean a carpet, any other floor covering, furniture upholstery and even a car interior owing to its removable attachments which can be attached to the leaner’s hose. When the wet cleaning mode is selected, the device not only cleans the surface but also dries it, saving your time. The main brush tool has the SpinScrub tool, which makes the carpet cleaner capable of removing any dirt while the stains and big dirt accumulations are removed utilizing the CleanSurge technology. The combination of these features leaves the dirt and stains on your floors no chance and removes them preserving the integrity and color of the cleaned material. The 11-inch width of the foot provides a quick sweeping of a large surface in one pass.
The Hoover FH50150 has all the tools and accessories in its package required for efficient cleaning. The most frequently used attachment is probably the main brush tool. However, you can use any bundled attachment instead of joining it with an attachable hose. The set includes a stair tool for cleaning stairs, a SpinScrub Hand Tool for big surfaces, a crevice tool to reach for confined places, and a tool that serves as a carpet and upholstery cleaner. With this kind of set, you'll have a total refreshment of the house. All detergent solutions are included in the pack.
... With a Thought-out Design
Despite its comparatively large size, this carpet cleaner is not heavy. You can easily move it around the house or carry from one room to another by holding any of the 4 handles. The FH50150 model has a 20-feel long power cord which ensures a comfortable cleaning of large rooms and premises. The clean water tank has a capacity of 1 gallon, which is equal to the capacity of the dirty water tank and is sufficient for cleaning two middle-sized rooms without interrupting your work to empty or refill the tanks. The water tanks have the Dual Tank design that provides their independent operation while the Smart Tank system allows their quick detachment from the main unit. If you decide to switch to manual cleaning, attach a hose and the required attachment from the set. The length of the hose gives enough maneuverability to move around the place from one area to the other and use the same plug.
All things considered, if you seek a solid high-performing cleaning workhorse to tackle both thorough cleans and quick spruce-ups and cover larger areas with ease, you can’t go wrong with the Hoover FH50150 carpet cleaner.

Scrubs Out the Competition
While there are many tips out there on how to keep your luxurious rugs looking spotless, no amount of vinegar or shampoo can replace a good, deep clean done by a device specifically designed to get the dirt out of carpets. If you’re not convinced yet, you’ll definitely agree after you’ve read up on the Bissell 1986 ProHeat 2X.
You can use this device’s dual DirtLifter power brushes to scrub through rugs, carpets, and upholstery, catching all dirt and dust that have accumulated in the pile. The doubled brushes mean that whatever the first one misses, the second one gets to. These, coupled with the Heatwave Technology™, take care of the dry debris and dust.
As for the spots that can’t be scrubbed out by the brush alone, the Bissell 1986 uses dual 1-gallon water tanks for wet cleaning. You can mix in some cleaning formula (two batches supplied with the purchase) to erase spilled wine, food stains, and pet “accidents” easily. If a stain proves particularly nasty and tough to get out, the Bissell 1986 comes with a 3-inch tool designed specifically to take care of these nasty spills. It can even be doused with the Pet Urine Eliminator formula that comes with the cleaner and you can probably guess what that one’s intended for.
Worth Its Money
Another reason why you need an automatic cleaning helper such as the Bissell 1986 Pro Heat 2X is the fact that mistakes are easy to make when getting out spots from your expensive rug by hand. From overshampooing to overscrubbing, these are a homeowner’s nightmare and yet they’re easy to avoid by relying on the Bissell 1986’s well-designed cleanup system.
This particular model uses the CleanShot Pretreater to soak the surface a bit, preparing it for a more rigorous cleaning session as you scrub it down with brushes. The only time you risk dirtying up the carpet is when you take off the water collection tank. It’s fixated quite firmly and if you pull too hard you might end up spilling the dirty water all over the floor.
You might be looking at the Bissell 1986 Pro Heat 2X and wondering if it’s actually worth the price and, if the aforementioned features haven’t convinced you, let us just quickly mention the fact that this model comes with a detachable hose for reaching into tight nooks and under furniture as well as a variety of tools to make sure your cleanup is efficient no matter what you’re actually cleaning.
To sum up, the Bissell 1986 Pro Heat 2X is a high-end cleaner for those that don’t mind paying for true quality. It’s good at taking care of dirt, stains, and spills, and it works gently to make sure your carpet isn’t damaged by the brushes.

Hoover FH50700 PowerDash Pet
A Compact and Agile Dirt Buster
As a rule, carpet cleaners are far from being compact. Normally hosting two liquid tanks and hefty brushes, these are rather bulky machines. On the other hand, though, the functionality they offer fully justifies their bigger dimensions, especially given the fact that we don’t usually take a carpet cleaner out of the closet too often. However, if you seek a relatively compact model for regular use in a smaller house or quick cleans, the Hoover FH50700 PowerDash carpet cleaner will surely hit the spot.
What sets this model apart from many of its rivals straight away is its fairly compact size and lightweight construction. However, it is not void of a dual tank system too. In order to make it compact yet full-featured, the manufacturer fitted it with a lower capacity 0.5-gallon tank and placed the other one right over the brush head. Furthermore, it's very compact - weighing only 13 lbs the cleaner is times lighter than its bigger counterparts and, hence, is much more maneuverable and agile. So, handling and moving it around will be easy for everyone, including older customers. Besides, an ergonomic D-shaped handle combined with a smartly positioned water/solution trigger will significantly reduce hand strain and fatigue while operating the unit.
As such, the model will work great for smaller areas or daily spruce cleans. That being said, if refilling the water and cleaning solution tanks a few times during operation doesn't seem such a challenge for you, the Hoover PowerDash can be used for cleaning any area. Moreover, a 20-foot power cord provides good coverage for that.
Compact and lightweight, this carpet cleaner is very easy to store. For maximum space-wise storage in any closet or cramped laundry room, you can wrap the cord around the handle or even take off the handle assembly.
A Saver for Pet Owners
The Hoover FH50700 package doesn’t contain any additional accessories that might be regarded as a disadvantage by some customers. But it is really superb in doing the job it is meant for and if you rather seek efficient cleaning performance than multiple bells and whistles, it will suit you just right.
Despite all the compactness, the model doesn’t trail behind in terms of cleaning efficiency. A 10-inch wide PowerSpin brush roll along with 840 W of power the appliance draws ensures really deep clean while the HeatForce technology speeds up drying. Stiff brush bristles go deep into the carpet pile beating out the most stubborn and embedded dirt, debris, and stains. Besides, the PowerDash pet brush fully lives up to its name and works miracles in picking up hair and pet fur. That said, this Hoover cleaner is a real saver for removing and cleaning out both pet- and child-related messes including spills, leaks, potty accidents, etc.
To wrap the whole thing up, the Hoover PowerDash is a compact and easy-to-navigate carpet cleaner with basic functionality. At the same time, it can do a great job where many more advanced models fail and will be a good choice for houses with pets and kids as well as for spot cleans in high-traffic areas and smaller spaces.

Enjoy Professional-grade Cleaning
Want to get professional-quality carpet and upholstery clean without renting a commercial cleaning machine? If so, we strongly recommend checking out the Bissell 1548F carpet cleaner. It will meet all your expectations and fully keep up with its promises.
First and foremost, though it’s a full-size upright cleaner, with a weight of below 18 lbs, it is noticeably lighter than many of its counterparts and easier to move around and lift up the stairs, which is an advantage for multi-story houses. At that, it still has a dual tank system, with each tank accommodating 1 gallon of water, so, you’ll be able to clean relatively larger areas without the need for a refill or discarding dirty water too often. Resting on two hefty rubber wheels, the appliance will smoothly glide over all types of carpets and rugs, with no stalls and jams. And thanks to a relatively low profile, it will freely get under most tables, recliners, armchairs, and couches.
Coming down to the cleaning performance, this is where the Bissell 1548F really shines. A sophisticated system of brushes along with versatile operation modes delivers immaculate cleaning results on all sorts of contaminations. Thus, as many as 12 rows of Dirtlifter power brushes go deep into the carpet pile to brush through the fibers and loosen the ground-in dirt.
To continue, a special Max clean mode will let you achieve immaculate results on extra dirty carpets, be it shaggy and low-pile carpets or area rugs. Meanwhile, a Wet cleaning mode will be suitable for routine thorough cleaning to keep your soft floorings neat and clean. And the Express mode is great for spot cleaning and quick spruce-ups when you simply need to refresh your carpets. Add to these the branded HeatWave technology that will keep the water in the tank warm to break down nasty splotches and you can be sure your carpet will start changing its appearance as you go.
With Family Needs in Mind
Families with pets and small kids more often face the problem of severe stains and stubborn dirt than others. While babies often spit up and toddlers tend to splash drinks and spill foods, to say nothing about paint, chalk, playdough, and modeling clay, pets can bring dirt and sand on their feet and leave hair clumps and dander in their favorite lounging spots.
With that in mind, the Bissell 1548F comes complete with a specialized pet tool and a 3-inch tough stain tool to remove embedded stains and dirt from upholstery, pet beds, stairs, and other surfaces. To add more, the appliance package includes trial samples of branded Bissell detergents. The Professional formula works great for regular thorough cleaning and the Deep clean+Antibacterial formula will work wonders on those stubborn dried and sticky spots. Not only will it clean and sanitize the surface, but also it will eliminate any foul odors. Besides, the amount of detergent you’ll get will suffice for several full cleaning cycles.
To resume, the Bissell 1548F carpet cleaner will provide professional-grade cleaning results time and again and save you the hassle and budget on hiring cleaning services.

What Is a Carpet Cleaner?
Carpet cleaners are used to keep work and living spaces tidy and clean by quickly picking up dirt and dust from all sorts of flooring including fluffy carpets and rugs just like the name suggests. The main feature of this type of vacuum cleaners is the ability to clean deeply, disinfecting carpets and other surfaces.
Due to special fluids and additional cleaning functions, these carpet cleaners are able to remove even old stubborn stains. Cleaning regularly with a carpet cleaner will save your place from dust, dirt, harmful bacteria and allergens and improve the quality of the air you breathe, making your home a better place for living.
This type of device is actually a bit different from regular vacuums as it's designed specifically to get out fur, dust, and dirt from carpets, oftentimes using wet cleaning methods and solutions. That kind of work could be done manually but who wants to stand on all fours scrubbing away at a stain when it can be done fast and elegantly by an automatic carpet cleaning device?
If you've got kids or pets, you know how messy the place can be after their games. If it's a problem that you are facing, we recommend checking out handheld vacuums as well.
What Features to Compare
The cleaning efficiency of a carpet cleaner is several times higher than that of a standard vacuum cleaner. With a carpet cleaner at hand, you won't need to clean your place every day - just once a week will be enough!
The efficiency of a carpet cleaner depends on several criteria, with power being the main one: naturally, the more power the motor yields, the better the vac absorbs dirt. 300 W is the average rate which is enough for cleaning low pile carpets and hard floors like linoleum or parquet. For heavily soiled surfaces containing dander, hair, and stains, it's better to opt for a carpet cleaner that can produce 450 W and more. Another important criterion is the width of the main attachment. Knowing this width, you'll be able to estimate how quickly the clean will take. Brushes that have an average width of 10 inches are considered optimal.
Usability and Performance
The next important aspect is the length of a power cord. An optimal length of the cord should be from 20 feet to 26 feet - such length makes it possible to clean a room without using extensions. The size and weight of a carpet cleaner also affect its performance and usability. These parameters are primarily dependent on the amount of water it can hold in a tank. The capacity of a clean water tank, as a rule, varies between 2.3 to 10 liters. For example, to clean a two-bedroom apartment, you'll need to use about 7.5 liters of clean water. When it comes to dirty water tanks, these are usually made bigger and can hold from 5 to 20 liters, depending on the model you choose. Consider the height of a handle as well and make sure it's adjustable so it will fit you comfortably and reach everywhere you need.
Package and Additional Features
We highly recommend paying attention to additional features of a carpet cleaner you choose. They determine what kind of tasks the device will be able to perform. Typically, carpet cleaners come equipped with 5-7 attachments: 2 or 3 of them are used for wet cleaning while the other 3 or 4 are used for dry cleaning. The standard attachment has an adjustable brush which can easily remove dirt from most carpets and carpeted floors. When you move it over the carpet, it quickly sucks in the dust which then goes into a dust container. This brush also protects the floor from scratches.
As for additional attachments, the crevice tool cleans in most hard-to-reach areas, like louvre-boards, gaps between the furniture, heaters, and ledges. A big attachment for carpets or a small attachment for upholstered furniture is usually used for wet cleaning. There is a built-in mechanism inside these attachments, which sprays a special cleaning solution. In most carpet cleaners, there are 2 cleaning stages. First, you have to spray the detergent mixed with water on the needed surface, then a brush whips this mix into the foam, after that the foam enters deep into the fibers of the carpet, and finally, all the dirt goes up together with the foam. A carpet cleaner absorbs everything into a dirty water tank and, as a result, the surface dries. There is a possibility to wash both the upholstery and furniture during the cleaning since a carpet cleaner splashes shampoo with water and immediately collects it.
A SpinScrub patented system incorporates a brush that rotates in two opposite directions, thus scrubbing the carpet pile on all sides. This makes it possible to remove even stubborn grime stains, allergens, and unpleasant smells with minimal effort on your side. However, not all carpet cleaners are equipped with one so if this is important for you, look through tech specs carefully.
