#1 Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet Pro
#2 Bissell Big Green:,+86t3&linkCode=ll1&tag=cewhitebooks-20&linkId=fe005a8056de0a6a19df9c64e2fb1159&language=en_US
#3 Rug Doctor Wide Track:
#4 Hoover Steamvac:
#5 Kirby Avalir 2:

So we used five different types of carpet cleaners for this competition. For example the Bissell Big Green Machine uses one extra large brush roll, the Hoover Steamvac uses a set of spinning brushes, the Rug Doctor uses a vibrating brush, the Kirby uses a dry foam method and the Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet Pro uses 2 sets of brushrolls.

Links in the description for prices and reviews of all the carpet shampooers in this test and lets get started.

We applied Georgia red clay to our medium pile test carpet, let it dry for 24 hrs and vacuumed up the dry debris.

All of them used the basic version of the shampoo, with no pretreatment.

For the first test we did 4 passes each, 2 with the water trigger pressed, and two without.

The winner to this point was the Bissell ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet Pro, with the Rug Doctor Widepath coming in 2nd and the Hoover Steamvac 3rd.

We then repeated the process adding two more dry passes and the results were pretty much the same, with the Bissell Revolution the clear winner.

I have to say the Bissell Proheat 2x Revolution was very impressive, it’s the 2nd cheapest unit of all 5 we tested and it still blew the competition away.

It comes with two types of handheld units for cleaning stairs or upholstery, and the hose was the easiest of all 5 units to attach and use.

It has a feature called clean shot which is a foot pedal that shoots cleaning solution on to particularly tough stains.

But the thing that really impressed me the besides being really cool looking, was its ease of use. It really was like using a vacuum cleaner, where you can clean on both a forward push or a backwards pull.

It’s the lightest of all 5, and it makes you want to clean very fast, because you can, but really its best to go slowly for better results.

So yeah it’s the best carpet cleaner I have seen to date.

    Only problem with the Bissell pro heat is that the heating element gets clogged up over time to the point where it won't spray anymore. And it's a royal pain to take apart and fix. I stopped using the heat after that happened.

  17. maestrojo says:

    I really didn't have many options besides the Rug Doctor when moving out of my apartment a few months ago. The carpet was a dark brown so it was hard to tell if I was making any headway in cleaning. Its nice to know that I was using a decent product. I'm really disappointed in the kirby test in this video though. Their vacuum cleaner line has been around the longest so I'm surprised they haven't perfected the art of vacuum cleaning.

    Wat do you think about the Bissell little green?

  22. E B says:

    Rainbow is still the best

  23. Jose Perez says:

    The Big Green is in a different class compared to the others as it is more like a rental type unit, however you don't see these often in a commercial outfit who cleans carpets.. Buyers beware of advertising words and always pick apart a products description… look out for Professional style or Commercial style, either it is a machine used for commercial operation or it isn't. Is it a professional machine because the guy who used it is an actual professional? Is it commercial style or professional style because it resembles the actual commercial grade machine. Beware machines that add the word pet, most people have a pet so it is heavy used to get sales. If you want a commercial machine you need just that a commercial machine, and many times the power supply or requirements to use the machine are different. You may not even have access to all the things required to use such a machine or the know how and training.
