Review: Bissell Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine
This one has a crazy name attached to it, boasting the fact that it’s a big deal. Is it all that it’s cracked up to be? It has a lot of happy owners, so that is a good start. Let’s take a look at the details.
The Bissell Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine is a professional grade carpet cleaner, built by Bissell to compete with heavy duty carpet cleaners, the best of the best. It has a bold look, with its colors and thick plastic construction.
It also is a very capable carpet cleaner, offering large water tanks and a cleaning action that cleans while going both directions. The large water tanks increase efficiency by decreasing the amount of time you spend adding or emptying water. This can be a very big benefit for those with larger carpeted areas to clean in their homes. The fact that this machine cleans while going both directions also increases efficiency. Both of these features will ensure that your larger carpet cleaning jobs take less time than with lesser priced carpet cleaners.
The construction is very durable, made with very sturdy materials. It feels like something you might find in a professional janitors arsenal, yet it’s designed well for home use.
The controls are simple, making for easy operation. You simply fill the water and detergent tanks, turn the machine on, and pull the trigger when you want to dispense detergent.
There is also a long hose with an attachment tool for upholstery/stairs. There are also many other accessories available for this machine, including different attachments with specialty purposes.
Bissell claims that this carpet cleaner will do a better cleaning job than leading rental carpet cleaners, and the reviews tend to suggest that they are probably correct.
