To reduce the risk of fire, use only BISSELL advanced deep cleaning formula for full size machines in your deep cleaner. Use of cleaning formulas that contain lemon or pine oil may damage this appliance and void the warranty. Chemical spot cleaners or solventbased soil removers should not be used. These products may react with the plastic materials used in your deep cleaner causing cracking or pitting.
Some Berber carpets have a tendency to fuzz with wear. Repeated strokes in the same area with an ordinary vacuum or deep cleaner may aggravate this condition.
Special features continued
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
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.
