The BISSELL SmartClean® System

POWERSTEAMER® PROHEATPLUS is a home cleaning system that automatically mixes hot tap water with cleaning solution formula and heats the cleaning solution as it is applied to the carpet. The combination of heated cleaning solution, powered brush and suction provide a safe and effective method of cleaning.

The Basics: How it works

SmartTemp

Temperature control automatically heats the cleaning solution as it is being applied to the carpet (*) to safely optimize cleaning effectiveness.

The SmartTempReady Light indicates when the

heater is ON and ready to clean. It is found on the front of the handle where

it is easy to see while you clean.

• The Power Switch controls power to the machine; both switches must be ON for SmartTempto work.

• The SmartTempSwitch is found on the back of the handle next to the Power Switch. It illuminates in the ON position. You may choose not to use the SmartTempfeature if you are cleaning delicate

wool, or oriental rugs.

* SmartTempheats the cleaning solution for carpet and bare floor application only. It does

not heat solution sprayed through the accessory tools.

How to clean upholstery and small areas

Important - Check Upholstery Tags:

1.Check manufacturer’s tag before cleaning. “W” or “WS” on the tag means you can use your POWERSTEAMER® PROHEATPLUS. If the tag is coded with “X” or “S” (with a diagonal strike through), or says “Dry Clean Only,” do not proceed. Do not use on velvet or silk. If manufacturer’s tag is missing or not coded, check with your furniture dealer.

2.Check for colourfastness in an inconspicuous place.

3.If possible, check upholstery stuffing. Coloured stuffing may bleed through fabric when wet.

4.Plan activities to give upholstery time to dry.

5.Vacuum thoroughly to pick up loose debris and pet hair. Use a vacuum with a brush attachment and a crevice tool to clean in fabric folds and tufts.
