Microbanantibacterial protection

Microban antibacterial protection helps prevent the growth of harmful common household bacteria including E. coli,Salmonella andStaph. a. It helps to keep the unit fresher and cleaner between uses.

ScotchgardProtector

Carpet protection applied at the mill typically wears down over time from heavy foot traffic and everyday cleaning, including deep cleaning. To help restore this important protection, only BISSELL offers cleaning formulas with Scotchgard protector. This offers extra protection against dirt and tough stains to keep your carpets looking good longer.

To maintain your Scotchgard 5-yearlimited stain warranty, you no longer are required to hire a professional. By using your BISSELL machine with BISSELL formulas containing Scotchgard protector every 12 months, your

carpet warranty from 3M remains in effect. No other home deep cleaning system can do this for you.

Before you clean

1.Remove easily moved furniture (chairs, lamps, coffee/cocktail tables, etc.) from room if needed.

2.Vacuum carpet thoroughly.

3.Decide where to begin. Plan to leave a path open to empty soiled water and refill cleaner.

Note: Carpeting will dry in three to four hours, depending on carpet style and air circulation in room. A floor fan speeds drying

Warning:

To reduce the risk of fire, use only BISSELL advanced cleaning formulas for full size machines in your deep cleaner. Use of cleaning formulas that contain lemon or pine oil may damage this appliance and void warranty. Chemical spot cleaners or solvent-basedsoil removers should not be used. These products may react with the plastic materials used in your deep cleaner, causing cracking or pitting.

Tip:

Deep cleaning spots, spills and high traffic areas on a regular basis can prolong carpet life.

4.To suction up water, repeat motion over same area without pressing the spray trigger.

5.Repeat steps 3 and 4 until no more dirt can be removed.

6.Continue to clean entire carpet, working in 1m x 1m sections.

7.Empty the collection tank when dirty water reaches the full line, or when the clean water/solution tank is empty.

8.If floor nozzle stops spraying, turn power switch OFF and check water and cleaning solution levels. Refill if needed.

Tip:

It is recommended that every time your clean water/solution

tank needs refilling, that you empty the contents of the collection tank. If the collection tank gets too full, you may begin to see foam spitting out of the vent cover. If this happens empty the collection tank.
