The Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet Pro Carpet Cleaner is a carpet cleaner designed to deep clean pet hair, dirt, and grime out of your carpet. Robust and not that pricey for its capabilities, it’s the perfect compromise without renting a professional cleaning machine or calling for a professional cleaning company.

This cleaning device is particularly efficient to get rid of pet messes and get all of the hair, odors, and stains out. It is an investment, though, but can change the cleaning routine to the point pet owners will look forward to it.

Unboxing- Well- packed And a Breeze To Assemble.

Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet Pro carpet cleaner comes well-packed. The package contains two parts tightly pressed together.

While some reviewers struggled to get them out of the box, it prevents bumping against each other during the transport.

Additional cleaning tools come in a convenient bag. Besides keeping them all in one place in packaging, the bag is also a great storage solution.

Some reviewers testified that they received used devices. This mainly depends on the retailer, but it’s possible, and it happened multiple times.

Therefore, keep an eye on the shape carpet cleaner is when you unbox it. If you see any leftover dirt, stretches, or ruined original box, return it immediately and demand a new item.

The assembly of the Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet Pro carpet cleaner is quite easy.

Many reviewers reported how surprised they were that the device has only one screw that connects a handle to the body.

The box doesn’t contain any assembly tool, but a regular screwdriver will work just fine.


Design and Maneuverability- Bulky, But Lightweight

Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet Pro carpet cleaner feels durable. Easy assembly with just two pieces connecting means fewer parts that can fall or wear off over time.

Like many specialized pet hair cleaners, this one emphasizes the brushes. However, the dual-brush system has its flaws.

The bigger brush is not so useful, with a lot of air leaks and lousy solution pickup. On the other hand, a smaller brush is much better at doing its job, making up for a whole brush system.

Both brushes tend to clog from time to time, but they’re still easy to snap off and rinse in the sink. For much faster clean up, there’s an EZ clean brush roll cover that helps get to the brushes in a second.

Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet Pro carpet cleaner comes with two separate tanks, making them easy to fill and empty after use. One tank is designed for a cleaning solution or water, and the other one collects dirt and debris.

Many customers reported that the dirty water tank is too small for cleaning larger areas and that they had to pause to empty it multiple times through the cleaning session.

Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet Pro carpet cleaner is lightweight and easy to maneuver around. It may look bulky, but the low profile nozzle makes it suitable for reaching under the furniture.

The power cord is quite long. However, some reviewers reported that it might become a problem since the power cord holder isn’t doing its job correctly.

Therefore, the unused cord is not secured well enough and keeps falling off.

Also, if you need to cover a lot of stairs, don’t rely on a long hose.

Reviewers often complain that it’s not even closely long enough to vacuum that area without having to move the whole vacuum up and down the stairs.


Usage- Fast and Effective 


After you set the vacuum up, it’ll take you a few minutes to get it working. A clean water tank is easy to fill.

Besides that, you just need to push the button on the handle to activate steam.

Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet Pro carpet cleaner works best in smaller sections- it`ll take you two passes with steam spraying to get most of the dirt and pet hair out of the carpet without soaking them.

Reviewers stated that the carpets are left dump, but not wet. However, it takes longer than an advertised hour for them to be completely dry.

When it comes to leaking the solution, reviewers reported some minor dripping from the brushes. However, you could expect that with every carpet cleaner, since thick bushes tend to hold on some liquid.

Overall, this carpet cleaner doesn’t use that much cleaning solution, so you’ll have a wider cleaning range with one tank filling.

Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet Pro carpet cleaner has powerful suction. Combined with brushes, it will loosen up carpet fibers and detach every pet hair in its way, along with tough stains.

For regular cleaning sessions, just hot water will take you a long way.

For some more stubborn stains and harder-to-extract debris, reviewers mostly prefer to use some chemical cleaning solution, as it saves a lot of time.

The tank holds the temperature of the water poured in. This means you don’t have to refill it with reheated water through the cleaning session.

The downside of powerful suction is that Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet Pro carpet cleaner needs to be cleaned after every use.

If not, it can clog easily, which will make you take the whole device to the parts to clean it up.

Customers stated that as an annoying side of using this cleaner, as it takes some time to adjust the cleaning sessions.


Parts and Accessories- A Few Additions Goes A Long Way

As a carpet cleaner specialized in removing pet hair, stains, and odor, Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet Pro focuses its tools and features on battling stubborn stains and hairs tangled in thick carpets.

Here’s a list of accessories for you to get an overall look:

As you see, Bissell included a premixed cleaning formula. One is a professional antibacterial pet urine eliminator, and the other is specialized pet stain and odor remover.

This is very helpful if you’re a carpet cleaner newbie, so you can try out the device on those nasty stains right away.

Additional cleaning tools are all designed to help you attack spot messes. However, many customers reported it’s not exactly the case.

For example, pet stain tools tend to spray the solution everywhere, including the nearest walls and furniture.

Sliding crevice tools and bare floor tools help collect the pet hair from corners and tiles without damaging the floor.

Finally, the nozzle cleaning tool significantly reduces the time you have to spend cleaning the device after using it.

All you have to do is snap off the brushes and get in with a tool to clean out any unwanted hair and dirt stuck in a nozzle.

This cleaner also comes with three cleaning modes- deep cleaning mode for getting deep into carpet fibers, a max clean mode that gives ultimate suction, and the express clean mode that dries the surface faster.

However, reviewers don’t see the difference between them.


Results- Outstanding With Room For Improvement

Most pet owners praise Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet Pro as the best carpet cleaner they ever used.

They testify how it works very fast. It’s capable of getting out even the older pet stains in just a few swipes.

Also, many reviewers are impressed by how well Brissel pet urine eliminator oxy eliminates the odor and freshens up the air in their homes.

However, there are a few significant complaints. First of all, for a device designed for vacuuming pet hair, it clogs easily.

This leads to a time-consuming process of untangling the hair from the brushes and cleaning up the nozzle.

Also, some customers reported it doesn’t suck up nearly as much liquid as it realizes.

They’re complaining that Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet Pro sucks up only about 1/3 of the solution back in the dirt tank, which left carpets to mush soggier than they expected.

However, for this suction power and this many delighted reviews, it’s worth some extra time that can take carpets to dry.

You can use some fans or just air them out by opening the windows to speed up the drying process.

Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet Pro is excellent to have in-household with some fur babies involved. Its lightweight and maneuverability will make it easy to pull it out of the closed almost daily.

It may look bulky, but it still has a nozzle slim enough to get under the furniture. That’s handy with wall-to-wall carpeting.


Storage- Convenient Upright Design

Since this is an upright device, storing away Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet Pro is not that big.

Pet owners living in smaller apartments or crowded households noticed that the cleaner takes up very little space, so it’s easier to keep it at the reach of the hand.

Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet Pro doesn’t have that many additional cleaning tools, but since there’s no onboard space on them, keeping everything in one place may be tricky.

However, reviewers widely suggest keeping the bag they came into and use it as storage when you need to put them away.

Just make sure that you maintain the device properly before you store it away. Besides cleaning up the nozzle, it’s important to empty and clean both tanks.

Reviewers don’t complain about the leaking, but it doesn’t hurt to stay on the safe side. After you rinse the tanks, make sure they’re properly air-dried to prevent molding.


Price- Mid-range 

Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet Pro is a mid-ranged carpet cleaner. What adds to a price is specialized designed aiming to help pet owners.

Most of the reviewers are more than satisfied with what they get for the money.

On the other hand, at 190USD, you’ll expect some more quality material than plastic.

However, all of the parts are durable, and they don’t break off easily.

Also, Bissell added their cleaning formula and some useful cleaning tools to widen the cleaning range of the vacuum, so it’s worth money spent.


Competition- Hoover Smartwash Automatic FH52000

Many of the reviewers compared Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Pet Pro to a Hoover Smartwash Automatic FH52000 carpet cleaner.

It’s also meant for deep cleaning the carpets and getting rid of dirt, harder debris, and pet hair.

It can also detect when to wash and when to dry all by itself, so there’s no steam trigger.

The reviewers stated that they can use it as easy as the regular vacuum and that the automatic solution mixing process cuts down the cleaning time noticeably.

However, Hoover is over 50USD pricier than the Bissell model.

Also, reviewers complained about the dirt tank. It’s significantly smaller than the solution/water one, which makes them pause and empty is much more often.

Moreover, Hoover users often report the failure of the parts.

For example, this vacuum tends to lose power entirely if the water tank is not fully snapped into its place. That’s normal.

However, it often looks like it’s all set and good to go, even if it isn’t, so learning what’s wrong with a cleaner can be frustrating.
