Special features

Innovative cleaning technology

This innovative deep cleaner offers two machines in one. The upright deep cleaner uses the power of heat, brushes and cleaning formula to get deep down dirt for a maximum clean. The portable spot cleaner detaches to clean tough spots and stains and hard to reach areas.

Hot water heater

This deep cleaner features a patented built-inhot water heater which will heat the hot tap water you put in to safely optimize cleaning effectiveness. The heater temperature is limited to prevent carpet damage. The heater automatically turns on when you turn the machine on. This operates only in upright cleaning mode.

Scotchgard™ Protector

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 deep 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 do not need to hire a professional. By using your BISSELL deep cleaner with BISSELL 2X 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. Refer to the Scotchgard Protector warranty for details.

Pedal Graphic


For easy carrying, grab the carry handle portable spot cleaner and balance with the handle on the back of the machine.
