Mark me down as a happy Bissell ProHeat 2X CleanShot owner.
Got this machine because of a puppy that was not house broken and did not want to keep renting a machine from the store and just wanted to get the smell and stains out.
Let me say this machine does get the smell & stains out. I used the Pro Deep Clean sample that came with the machine and it did a really good job ( got more dirt out after using a rented machine just a few weeks ago).
But then I thought I would try the 2X Pet Stain & odor formula and WOW did it make the room smell better!
Now my carpet is low pile Beige in color so the stains were not that noticeable so I had to go around with my black light ( used to light my old hippie posters from years past LOL ) to spot all the markings.
Did the power shot thing and cleaned and then went back over the spots to see if they came out and they were still there using the UV light but to the naked eye you could not see the spot so not sure if the stains would be visible with white carpet ( I did not pretreat so THAT may make a difference ) BUT the smell was gone.
On the other areas of the carpet the other stains (coffee, dirt etc. ) did come out and the machine did a VERY good job.
As far as getting the carpet fibers out when cleaning the machine, Its not going to effect the operation of the machine if not completely removed. I would just be more concerned with properly cleaning the fomula bottle out ( noticed the formula on my hands seems kinda sticky, maybe the Scotchgard in it does that) so I clean the bottle out real good and run hot water thru it so it won't clog the nozzles.
Great machine highly recommend it

Bissell outdid themselves with this one. Forget the gimmicks, the power-shot, the hot air dryer, and just marvel at how well this machine works.
Ive had Bissell Pro-Heat cleaners for years. I almost switched to the other Brand for a change, I'm so glad i didn't.
Only one negative, and this has been true for all Bissell cleaners:
Cleaning the intake area of the cleaner after use is a pain or impossible. so expect a bit of carpet fibers to get stuck in the clear part of the cleaner. There is no way to take this apart, and after only one use i have carpet junk stuck in the clear part by the tools button. Rinse it, soak it, forget it, cause it's not coming out. It might be just me, but i like my expensive toys to look new as long as possible, so this irks me.
I highly recommend this cleaner. I know its expensive, but worth it. I'm an average person, with average low budget older than Christ carpet. and i cant say enough about this cleaner. Soon as you see that first bucket of black water, and that near bleached looking area of carpet, you know you got the right one!
Don't believe me? do the white Sock test.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The Cleaner A great carpet cleaner
Cleaned 600sq ft on two fills, it did a great job. Would buy again if I needed to, but I think this one will give me years of service.

I love this cleaner. I was upset when I used it only once and the plastic part on the front broke, however the wonderful customer service from Bissell came through and they sent me a new part free of charge. My old cleaner was 12 years old and I loved it but it broke. I was not sure this new Bissell would be as nice but it is even better. I love the light weight cleaner and it really does clean. I use it on my carpet and my tile floor and it does a great job on both.

I have been looking for a new carpet/floor cleaner for a long time my old one did not really do all it claimed to.
I purchased the Bissell ProHeat 2X and have been thrilled with its performance and love how easy it is to use, the attachments make it possible to get every area in one sweep. house has a wonderful clean smell, both the carpets and tile look great!

This is my 3rd carpet cleaner and Bissell just keeps getting better as the technology improves. I am older and this is so easy to use and does a terrific job.
Biseell is a good product, holds up very well and is durable!

This is the first steam cleaner we have owned and it really does a great job on the carpet. We do have a Chocolate lab and the cleaner gets the hair the vacuum cleaner leaves behind. It does a wonder job on stains. We are very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cindy62 More than I expected
To be perfectly honest, I wasn't expecting a spectacular job...boy was I surprised. We have had our carpets professionally cleaned a couple of times with good results, but it has been 3 years and they were in desperate need of a scrubbing. It is so difficult to move everything to accomodate the shampoo guys, so it kept getting put off. My husband agreed to give the Bissell a try and I thought, well, it's better than nothing. It did at least as good...maybe even better! The "complaint" I could say is a bigger soap tank would be nice....but that's minor! Thanks Bissell, this is a great machine!
