This carpet cleaner from Bissell is a powerful performer with advanced features and performance that allows it to have ‘professional’ in its name. At the same time though, it’s also potable enough to be used conveniently around the home and it’s actually significantly cheaper than some of the other options on the market. So what’s the catch? Let’s take a closer look at this carpet cleaner and see if it really does live up to its impressive promise.
This is the most powerful cleaner from Bissell and is overall a very potent machine for its size. Reviews express that this device is powerful enough to very quickly and efficiently clean up most carpets to a professional standard. This means that you can go over most areas only once and rest assured that the clean will be thorough, and it means that you can save yourself a lot of time and effort.
Performance-wise, though, one complaint that some people make is that this is a very noisy machine. Of course, this isn’t going to be a problem for most people as long as they are aware – your neighbors might thank you not to clean your carpets after 9 pm!
One great feature on the Bissell 3624 is the option to clean the recovery tank. This is something that can sometimes get a little worse for wares, and the option to clean helps to keep it looking it’s very best and performing as well as possible to match. The whole lid comes off and with no crevices for gunk to get caught, it’s an easy clean. It’s also a much larger tank than some other units.
The unit also comes with some additional benefits that help to make it great to use. For instance, there is a flex hose with five different attachments, and this makes it very easy to clean everything from your furniture to your stairs to your curtains. There is also a nice and long power cord at 22 ft.
Regarding the design, the Bissell Spot Clean Pro is a little less practical than some of its more upright counterparts. There is no large handle for pulling and pushing the unit, so instead, you will need to make do with the carry handle and physically pick up and move the device to each spot on the carpet as you intend to clean. Fortunately, the carpet cleaner does come good on its claim of being portable. At just 16.2 pounds, most people should have no problem lifting it from one spot to the next.
This spot cleaner comes with a 3-inch tool designed specifically for tougher stains and one 8 ounce bottle of Bissell professional deep clean formula. This means you’ll be ready to go straight out the box rather than having to hunt around for detergent before you can get started.
Warranty & Support
The Bissell Spot Clean Support comes with the regular warranty and support.
Overall, this device does exactly what it says on the packaging. This can provide professional-degree carpet cleaning in a portable form factor. However, the lack of a handle for pushing and pulling means that it is designed specifically for cleaning spots of dirt rather than cleaning your entire carpet. If you need something affordable that can help you to remove tough stains or muddy footprints, then this is a great buy. However, if you want something that will let you clean your entire carpet, then you should look elsewhere. The tools provided are also perfect for cleaning furniture and upholstery.
Note as well that this unit doesn’t come with many of the ‘bells and whistles’ of other products. While you get some extras, there is less of the advanced technology seen in some competing models from the likes of Hoover.
In short, this is a great product with great reviews across the web, and it is certainly a powerful performer for the money. It’s just important that you know what you’re getting before you part with your hard-earned cash. This is a spot cleaner for cleaning tough stains and not a general, all-around carpet cleaner. Keep that in mind and it will be a great purchase!
