Not so good: Comes without an onboard heater. Not suitable for dealing with small spots and stains.
Verdict: A light carpet cleaner from Bissell’s range which comes with Microban tank coatings to prevent the build up of bacteria and an onboard hose for smaller spaces.
A lightweight carpet cleaner with a permanently attached hose and tools to help you clean above ground, the Bissell Cleanview Reach (37Y8E) will help you restore the freshness and fullness to the floors around your home. Weighing less than six kilograms, it is light and easy to operate around any room in your house, and can be used simply around large areas with its extensive power cord.
Its two rotating powerbrushes work hard to remove the dirt and stains that may have become ground into your carpet over time. They remove the odours across your floor and help restore your carpet’s colour and spring, making your home fresh and clean as it ought to be. Ultimately the Cleanview Reach’s twin rows of bristles make for a more efficient clean than static brush models. They spin at a regulated speed to work the cleaning solution into your carpet, parting the pile so that the shampoo can reach deep into your floor to root out embedded dirt and allergens.
With its Microban antibacterial protection, you can even use this machine to help guard against the growth of bacteria which commonly grow in the home like E. coli, Salmonella and Staph A. This extra layer of protection will also keep your unit fresh and clean when you put it away after you’ve cleaned your home.
It also comes with a permanently attached extension hose that you can easily operate to switch from floor cleaning to tool cleaning with just one touch. You’ll even get two hand tools in the box with your machine, including a tough stain brush that will help you clean up those stubborn stains and spills that could otherwise damage your furniture or your vehicle.
When you buy your machine, all you will need is a Philips screwdriver to put it together quickly and easily. Then you simply have to fill it up and you will be ready to go. When you’re finished cleaning, the nozzle can be removed quickly and the dirty water tank is easy to rinse with warm water so you can remove any debris. In the box with your machine you’ll also find a sample bottle of Bissell Wash and Protect carpet shampoo which has been specially made to provide the best possible results when you use it on your floor. It is safe to use on any kind of carpet, even on pure wool.
This model is a great choice for small to medium sized family households, especially if you have kids or pets traipsing around the place and leaving a mess with their sticky hands or mucky paws for you to clear up. The machine is even approved by Allergy UK like others in the Bissell range, proven to reduce cat, dog, pollen and mould spore allergens from your floors. So if you have allergy sufferers in your home, it is ideal for you.
