Not so good: Comes without an onboard heater. Not appropriate for upholstery and stairs.
Verdict: A lightweight and easy-to-use carpet cleaner kitted out with Microban coating and equipped with cross action brushes especially designed to clean away the dirt and odours embedded in your carpet.
The Bissell CleanView QuickWash is a light, full size carpet cleaner that is easy to use and manoeuvre across your floor. With its six rows of cross action brushes you can easily loosen embedded dirt in your carpet, while thanks to its edge sweep brushes you can extract any built-up grime and muck from the hard-to-reach edges of your rooms.
If you have an old-fashioned vacuum cleaner, you’ll know that cleaning your carpet is a long and tough job that ends up taking up most of your day, making it unable for you to enjoy your home properly for hours after you’ve done the job. However with this machine’s concentrated suction, your carpet will be left dry enough to walk on far quicker than before. And with its wide suction path and edge sweep brushes you’ll be able to prevent dirty stains along the skirting where you’d be unable to reach with a normal run-of-the-mill machine.
Featuring separate tanks for clean and dirty water, this model is remarkably simple to operate. All you have to do is fill up the clean water tank with hand hot tap water, add some Bissell carpet cleaning formula, and then drop the tank in position on the back side of the machine. A separate tank collects the dirty water, keeping the clean water for your carpet. The tanks are easy to attach and remove, ensuring you’ll have no problems using your machine.
The machine even comes with a sample bottle of Bissell Wash and Protect carpet shampoo which you can use for the best possible results on your carpet. As well as leaving your room spotless, it adds a protective layer of Scotchguard on your carpet each and every time you wash it. It is safe to use whatever kind of carpet you have, even if it’s made of pure wool. Attached to the machine meanwhile you’ll find a removable nozzle which is easy to clean after use, as is the dirty water tank.
Bissell’s carpet cleaners also include Microban antibacterial protection, made of components that will help to stop harmful household bacteria like E. coli, Salmonella and Staph.a from growing. This means that when you use your machine on your carpet, not only will your floor get a good clean but your unit will stay fresh too.
And finally the Cleanview Quickwash is nice and easy to use as soon as you buy it and take it out of the box. All you’ll need is a Phillips screwdriver and five minutes to put it together, as well as a couple of minutes to fill the tank up, and you’ll be ready to go. Then when you’re using it on your carpet, to switch from floor cleaning to tool cleaning you just have to turn the ready tools dial. You don’t have to fiddle with hoses or clips – it’s straightforward to handle.
