Everyone has a vacuum cleaner to clean their home on a daily or weekly basis but after a while even the most powerful vacuum cleaner won’t be able to deal with years of dust and grime and that’s where the Bissell Proheat Revolution carpet cleaner comes in.

Up until a few years ago cleaning your carpet effectively would have to be left to a professional cleaning company due to the complex nature of how they are operated.

If you did decide to give it a go yourself then you would be more likely to rent a carpet cleaner rather than buy one because the cost of buying was so high that it didn’t make any sense.

All of that changes with the Bissell Proheat Revolution carpet cleaner.

Lightweight and super easy to use, you can now deep clean your carpets in exactly the same way as a professional carpet cleaning company would do for a fraction of the price.

For the price you would pay a company to clean your entire home once, you can buy the Bissell Proheat carpet cleaner and use it to keep the carpets in your home clean for many years.

Features and Benefits

There is nothing complex about this cleaner and that starts straight out of the box with just a few parts to click together and you are good to go.

You are looking at about 5 minutes from box to ready which is quick for a carpet cleaner.

Just slot in the handle into the top of the main unit and a small part that holds the cable in place and literally that’s it, ready for use.

There are two settings. Deep clean and express clean. The way in which the brushes rotate to agitate and clean the carpet is the same in either mode but with the deep clean it will add more water and cleaning solution to provide a deeper clean.

Depending on the condition of the carpet in the area that you want to clean will dictate whether you go for the deep clean or express clean.

If you are using a carpet cleaner for the first time and your carpets haven’t been cleaned for years then deep clean is the option to use but for stains or smaller areas you may be able to get away with an express clean.

If you need to be able to use the area you are cleaning quickly then the express cleaning mode will have the area dry to walk on within about 30 minutes.

A nice little function that you don’t get on a lot of other carpet cleaners is the “cleanshot” that spreads the cleaning solution onto the carpet ready for the cleaning to be done. Press one button to start the spreading of the solution and focus it across the area to be cleaned and press the same button again to stop.

This image shows how the cleanshot solution spread works:

The water container holds up to 3.7 litres of water for the clean water container and the dirty water feeds through into a separate container which is transparent and clearly shows a full line so you know when it needs emptying.

Overall cleaning performance is excellent. It really does have the ability to bring back carpet to close to new levels. If you haven’t cleaned your carpet for a long time or possibly never then you will definitely be pleased with the results the Bissell Proheat delivers.

The way to get best results is to give the area you want to clean a once over with the deep clean mode, let it dry overnight and then go over it again the next day in express mode and a few hours later you’ll be done.

It comes with a set of accessories that enable you to clean above floor level. The hose for stairs clips easily into the front of the main head of the cleaner and then when powered on it directs the solution through a powered brush so that you can clean the carpet on your stairs just like a larger floor surface.

There is an upholstery tool as well that clips onto the hose allowing you to clean any fabric upholstery item above floor level easily and quickly.

One of the best things about the Bissell carpet cleaner is that it moves around just like a regular upright vacuum cleaner.

At 8.62kg it’s not the lightest thing you have ever lifted but compared to other carpet cleaners it’s among the lightest in its class and easy enough to lift up and down the stairs.

This carpet cleaner is capable of removing even the toughest of stains that have become ingrained over long periods of time.

You may have to go over them and attack them with the cleanshot function that adds concentrated solution directly to the problem area but you WILL get results.


The entire carpet cleaner is made with ease of use for the customer in mind.

A lot of carpet cleaners are heavy, clunky and difficult to operate but the Bissell Revolution Pro can be used and operated just like a regular vacuum cleaner.

Everything from taking it out of the box, removing and putting back the water tank through to the cleaning process itself is as simple as using your everyday hoover.

Cleaning performance is outstanding and consistently outperforms other carpet cleaners at much higher prices.
