New built-in heater feature maximizes effectiveness of portable deep cleaner

BISSELL Homecare, Inc. today announced the release of the SpotBot PROheat, a revolutionary handsfree portable deep cleaner with a newly installed, built-in heater to maximize cleaning performance. One of BISSELL’s most innovative products, the SpotBot PROheat gives consumers the freedom to walk away as stains are removed with the push of a button, and the new built-in heater boosts cleaning efficacy, heating the water and cleaning solution up to 25 degrees hotter.

As with the original SpotBot, the SpotBot PROheat has an Automatic Smart System™, measuring and distributing the appropriate amount of water and cleaning formula to suction up tough stains and leave the carpet clean. SpotBot PROheat also permanently removes stains like red wine, grape juice, cola, and coffee when used as directed. Users simply put the portable deep cleaner on the spot or stain, hit start and walk away. A hose and cleaning tool are conveniently stored on board the unit for manual cleaning of stairs and hard-to-reach areas.

"The SpotBot is consistently rated and reviewed by consumers as a must-have stain removal machine, and we are proud to be able to combine this push-button power with one of the most effective cleaning tools on the market – heat," says Jim Krzeminski, BISSELL's executive vice-president and chief customer officer. "BISSELL is the only brand to combine the power of a built-in heater with deep down through cleaning, and SpotBot Proheat is our newest innovation to bring this great benefit to the consumer."

The SpotBot PROheat also comes with built-in Microban® protection in key components of the machine, combating the growth of odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew, and working continuously to make it easier to clean and to keep clean between uses.

The SpotBot® PROheat is currently available at most major retailers nationwide for the suggested retail price of $149.99.
