Pros / The warranty is longer than any other we compared.
Cons / It’s heavier than others, which can matter if you have to take it up and down stairs often.
Verdict / The Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet Pro was excellent at stain removal and its versatility is impressive, but the price may be prohibitive, depending on your budget.
The Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet Pro tied for the second best in our latest round of stain removal tests. It is also very easy to use, maintain and maneuver. It is packed with features that will make it easy to maintain any home, especially one with pets, but its high price tag may have you looking for a less expensive alternative.
The ProHeat 2X is designed to offer an option for quick pet clean-ups in addition to a normal carpet cleaning experience. When operating as a general cleaning tool, you simply mix cleaning solution in the water tank, run the machine over carpeting, then draw the water out, as stains, hair and dirt are easily lifted away. You can choose the Deep Clean mode that employs plenty of water, which in some cases means your carpet takes a long time to dry.
There is also the Express Clean mode, which cleans quite well and can usually dry in approximately one hour. This is designed with a special device to hold pre-treating solution that you can squirt directly onto pet stains and spots by just pressing your foot onto a pedal.
The brush is made of 12 alternating rows of Powerbrushes, so as it rotates it can loosen ground-in dirt and grime. This ProHeat is equipped with an 11-inch cleaning path, which is about average.
You get a generous 25-foot power cord with this carpet cleaner, so you won’t have to keep plugging and unplugging it into electrical sockets as you work. This machine also sports an 8-foot hose for attachments, which can help you reach many somewhat awkward places that get dirty.
The Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet Pro weighs in at 19 pounds, which is just a bit over average for carpet cleaners in our comparison. However, moving it from room to room is relatively easy since it has a carrying handle.
You can attach the 2-in-1 pet upholstery tool and clean the couch, chairs and other places where your pets may have left paw prints and fur, despite your well-intended rules regarding no pets on the furniture. Using its dry mode, you can clear away any hair, visible dirt and if you choose, can change to the wet mode for deeper cleaning. You can also use this carpet cleaner and a helpful attachment to clean stairs.
Bissell backs this carpet cleaner with a five-year warranty, which is longer than any other cleaner in our review. If you run into problems, you can contact Bissell via email or phone, and you can check the company website to find a service center near you.
The Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet Pro is versatile and well-designed, but all the features come at a high price. There is only one more expensive carpet cleaner in our comparison. The Pet Pro's stain-removal capabilities are impressive, though, and might be worth the price if you need something better than average for a pet-friendly home.
