Bissell Little Green ProHeat Pet

Rating: 4 out of 5
  • Currently 4.0/5.0

I originally purchased the Bissell Little Green ProHeat Pet for two reasons: I had an elderly cat that was having accidents in the house, and I had a teenage son who spilled things everywhere and then hid the stains. I chose this model because it was portable and it had extra features for pet problems.

The cleaner is easy to use and is amazingly effective on pet spots and old carpet stains, more so than the upright cleaners that I've used. When using heated water and deoderizing pet cleaner, it even handles cat urine.

It is a very easy-to-use cleaner. The cleaning solution tank and the dirty water tank both pop off, making refill and emptying easy. The attachments clip to the back, so you can just fill up the solution and then tote the cleaner to the place where you need to work. It also has a very long cord, which is helpful on stairs and when I used it to clean the car upholstery.

The biggest difference between the ProHeat and the ProHeat Pet is the rotating brush attachment that's included with the Pet. I use the rotating brush ten times for every once I use the plain tool. The water jets are strong and the heated water is steaming hot. Even my husband is amazed at the stains it is able to get out.

The built-in water heater is simple to use. You fill the cleaner with hot water and solution, then turn on the heater and let it run for about a minute. A red light will shut off once the water has heated, so there's no guessing whether its ready.

The only real downsides are the small volume of cleaning solution it holds and the inconvenience of crawling around on one's hands and knees to clean carpet spots. I can clean an area about six feet square on one tank, which is usually enough for many spot cleanups. However, when I decided to clean the sofa with it, I needed a refill to finish the job.

The unit costs just under $100 and was the most expensive of the portable cleaners available where I purchased it. However, based on the amount of use I've already gotten from this cleaner and how well it cleans, I'm very happy with it.
