This carpet cleaner works! And the price of this product is roughly the same as if we had paid to have the carpets cleaned professionally. We have a golden retriever and as all dogs do he adds to the soil of our carpets. One area looked so bad the beige carpet was grey. We were going to have the carpet replaced it looked so bad. After cleaning the carpet once it looked almost as good as new. We are very happy we made this purchase and we would recommend this cleaner without reservation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ann IF YOU HAVE PETS & REALLY STAINED CARPET..BUY THIS
OMG! MY CARPET WAS GROSE! I adopted two english mastiffs, and my carpets have suffered. Not to mention these are older dogs and one has bladder issues in her sleep that I tried to keep cleaned up with the Bissell Portable ( I give that an A as well)You can imagine how stained up my carpets had become because of drool, urine stains, muddy paws, regular foot traffic.
I researched several brands for weeks trying to make the best decision for ongoing cleaning.
YOU HAVE TO BUY THIS. My carpets look like new again. I had to go over it several times and use the cleaning tool in spots, but it got the job done. There is no longer any evidence of dogs, it smells great and I feel I am able to invite over friends again!
The pitfall I found so far, is that I noticed it losing suction after about 3rd tank refill. I ended up having to clean up the brushes that was filled with dog hair my (Bissell) sweeper missed (whats up with that?)
The other thing is I wish the tank was a little bigger. My dining room is 17 x 17 and it took 4 tanks to deep clean it until it was clear water. It is not hard to change tanks at all. just time consuming.
I highly recommend this to anyone..especially if you have animals, and after renting one a few times, you could have paid for this!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ms goodwrench So far, so good...
I have an older Hoover model that I used for years after my friend was done with it. It did well, but was starting to fail after years of service. I have 3 cats which makes for frequent carpet cleaning. I tried my sister's ProHeat 2 and liked the way it heated the water helping to clean better, AND I liked the ability to rinse the cleaning solution away with a separate rinse cycle. After looking at different makes and models, I settled on the ProHeat2 Pet unit. I have used it successfully now using both the hand held tool and scrubbing with the carpet scrubber. I like the ease of the water storage container; it slips into place much easier than my Hoover did. I am a 50+ female and I find this unit handles with ease. I like the extra hand tools that come with it; never know what surface you may need to scrub, with three cats! and the tools are right there ready to use. No problems so far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ed Some great points & some not so Great
I have a hover carpet cleaner yet when I saw this one I had to have it. It says it will clean hard wood floors and yes it does a pretty good job, the only problems I have with the proheat 2x is when you are using it on hardwood with the hard wood attachment it leaves water and steaks once you have cleaned a spot. It is not the vac problem but the attachment with the scrubber and squeegee once you back up and stop you have water. if there is any suggestion please let me know. Other than that I am very pleased with it

My proheat 2x never had suction. I bought it for maintence, or in case of emergency, for my brand new expensive carpet. it never had suction. i thought i must be doing something wrong, but didnt have time to mess with it, so i put it up. 6 months later i really needed it and i took it all apart checked everthing everyone on -line said to do...checked the little red door, filter (its new ...), the seal, the dial, the little gray latch, the nozzle is in the goove, everything i read to do, still no suction. there is some suction with the hand tool, i can feel it with my hand, but its not enough to suck the water. i think mine is defective. my new expensive carpet is very wet. My husband has ran to Lowes to get a shopvac. What can i do with this piece of junk? Did i waste my money??

This carpet cleaning machine is by far the easiest and best machine I have ever used or rented! I am so glad I bought it, pet stains are a thing of the past.

I have had our 9300/ Pro Heat 2X Pet for about a month now and love it! Cleans very well and ours came with extra attachments which are all very useful. My first machine which I am retiring is a Hoover Steam Vac which was purchased in the 90's. We paid a lot more money for the Hoover and I can tell you this machine was less money and cleans much better. The heated water is the main reason I bought this machine because I think it cleans so much better. I am very satisfied with the Bissell!
