I have an old Bissell canister that hooks up to the faucet and is a real pain to use. And I also have a SpotBot which is great, except when the spot that has been cleaned is in a traffic area and I end up with a very noticable round clean spot.
|I have a new Bissell and I LOVE IT! I use it all the time.|
|Ginny does the Bissell work on hard floors too? I'm looking for a steam cleaner for my tile floors.|
|They have a model that does, I think it's the model up from mine. I have the Bissel Powersteamer Pro. I wish I had bought the next model up and gotten the one that does hard floors.|
|Thanks Ginny! I ended up buying a Hoover All Terrain last night, Kind of desparate with Chloe and Lucy seeming to alternate weeks for the runs.
Wish they'd have their 'accidents' on the tile rather than the carpet, but I suppose they think it is closer to grass.
The Hoover does a good job on carpet, but it is tricky to install the hot water reservoir without dribbling. I'll try it on tile this weekend. I've got a Floormate, but it isn't doing as good a job as it used to.
|That is one of the things I really like about the Bissell, the water tank is super easy to fill, install and then empty. Good Luck!!!|
|You know I have to pipe up here! I also have the Bissell-- this model:
It's awesome on high traffic areas and, like Ginny said, the water tank is really easy to fill. I love my cleaning products!
|A clean floor is a happy floor
I must admit to being a bit neurotic when it comes to floor cleaning products
|Old and rotten:
Bissell 1425B Little Green Proheat Turbo Carpet Cleaner
New and Improved:
Bissell 9200 ProHeat 2X Upright Deep Carpet Cleaner
|I have a Bissel upright pro cleaner. No carpet anymore, just area rugs, but it worked great when we used it often. I also have the newer little green machine and it works good for small spots too.|
|And I also have the Bissell Proheat. In fact, I am sitting here at 2345 on the computer, instead of shampooing MY carpets! I guess it will be a late night.......|
|I have a Bissell that's over 12 years old. It's a cannister model, but it doesn't hook to a faucet. You fill up a container with hot water and put it in. It's worked great for years. So I like the Bissel brand in general.|
|We just ordered our first one. I hope they're easy to use. I'm excited. We had a tough time deciding between the Bissell 9400 ProHeat 2X and Hoover F5914-900.|
|I burnt up the pump motor in my Bissell ProHeat - too much use!
I got a new one on the Black Friday sales and got a great deal. It was $70 off!
The new one is a Hoover SteamVac deep cleaner. I like this one better to use, but the brushes are wimpier.
|I will put my 2 pennyworth in, we got a Vax upright carpet cleaner and it is so easy to use, I have never had to use it yet husband and son volunteer every time. It was £60 but fantastic. Only trouble is daughter in law borrows it and it now has a crack in the water tank but with a bit of tape works really well,
Now my laminate kitchen floor don't get me started on that, it never ever looks clean and is starting to wear out but good exercise when I clean it!
|Has anyone boughtr a hardfloor steamer? Like the Shark or Eureka cleaner? Kohls has one on sale this week and I am sorely rempted (I have a 30% off coupon).|
|I have looked at these for my laminate floor, but I dont know anyone who has one|
|I don't think you are supposed to use them on laminate, only vinyl and sealed hardwood.|
|We had a Bissell upright (not a "proheat") and wasn't impressed, purchased about 7 years ago. It did clean nicely, but reliability was horrible. Within 4 months the agitator motor burned up (replaced on warranty, but had some problems with the local contract service repair shop to work out). Shortly after that the first of several plastic clamps to hold the various tanks broke off (by the time we junked it last fall, all the clamps had broken off and everything was just held in place by gravity). Had problems with the soap dispenser/can thingy dripping and dumping too much soap at once into the mix for several years. Finally the sprayer pump died and we put it out of its misery. I don't feel that we had used it that much at all and was disappointed. Sounds like others have had better luck though and it did clean nicely when it was working. Personally I'll try another brand next time.
One thing I did learn, ALWAYS rinse with clean water after a washing - we got much better and lasting results with a good rinse.
|heres my 2 cents. I have a hoover steam vac. I have had it for 9 years. Works great. I can use on my kitchen floor too. Also it has attch. for furniture. I have done our car rugs and seats. Came our great.|

I have had both the shark canister and the eureka stick steamers. I used to use them on my tile floors. I loved the Eureka. The Eureka would dissolve scunge off the floors and leave everything so clean. It was amazing. The shark was annoying because the canister did not move as easily as the stick. I was constantly feeling like I had to lug it around. I am not sure if my hardwoods in my new home are sealed so I gave mine away.
|GEEZ VAL, why didn't you give it to MEEEEEEEEEEEE|
|I'm glad to see people like their Hoover SteamVac over their Bissell ProHeat b/c that's what we chose ...but we didn't think we'd go wrong with either of them. Should come monday. Can't wait to clean!|

Clearly I wasn't thinking properly.
|Our new Hoover got out stains the professional cleaners couldn't|
|I broke down and bought a SHARK this weekend,
I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Doug thinks I am obsessed with floor cleaning gadgets but this is really really REALLY cool. When I come in with the boys after a muddy romp, I pull out the shark and steam the foot prints off the floor, It is just WONDERFUL!

You can file this under "too late", but I also have a Shark and I love it too. I have acres of ceramic tile, and it does a great job. But I do need something for my carpets too.
Our new Hoover got out stains the professional cleaners couldn't
OK, I'm blaming you and Dawn if I don't like the darn machine but even with the whimpier bursh warning, I'm off to pick up a Hoover steamvac.
I had a Bissel and I loved it. Nothing fancy. But it gave up the ghost in a puff of smoke last weekend. Not that I blame it...between puppies and rescues and the well established pig gene in my dogs.
Looking for one with an attachment so I can do stairs. And if it could do tile floors, that would be great too. In fact, if they could stuff an operator in the box with it, that would be especially nice. I'm getting tired of my boss asking me what exciting things I did over the weekend and all I can talk about it how well my enzyme dog shampoo works on their whites or that I mopped X number of floors in record time
|OK, color me converted. Got the Hoover. I think I'm in love....
we used ours yesterday for this super stuck stain on our carpet and we were amazed what it did when we let the cleanser soak a bit.
