The Bissell 1548 ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet Full-Size Carpet Cleaner is very popular amidst pet owners, and home users for its cleaning prowess. It’s lightweight, making cleaning homes, furniture, stairs and entire rooms such a breeze. To top it all, the carpet cleaner is well designed with noteworthy features like dual water tanks, dual cleaning modes and Heatwave technology.
DirtLifter power brushes
The Bissell 2X 1548 machine is famous for its DirtLifter brushing technology where 12 rows of brushes are spread over two continually spinning rollers. This gives a bigger cleaning row width of about 12 inches, which is wider than the cleaning row widths of other machines.
While the Bissell 1548 does not have an in-built heater to heat water, it can keep warm water warm. Its Heatwave technology keeps water warm while cleaning to ensure a better and thorough clean.
Once the clean water tank is filled with warm water up to 140degrees F/60 degrees C, its Heatwave technology uses the heat generated from the machine to maintain the water temperature.
Two water tanks
Filling and emptying water tanks is so easy in the Bissell 1548 ProHeat carpet cleaner with its individual clean and dirty water tanks. The clean water tank can hold as much as a gallon of water when full. Both tanks are so well-designed that there’s no spilling while filling and emptying.
Two cleaning modes
The carpet cleaner has two cleaning modes to choose from and use as needed. Express Clean gives a lighter cleaning with quicker drying time, and is the perfect choice if you are in a hurry to clean and dry the carpet. The Deep Clean gives a deeper and thorough cleaning to remove all the embedded pet stains and dirt in badly and stubbornly soiled carpets.
Weighing only 18 pounds or 8 kgs, this is one of the lightest carpet cleaners with similar functions. This makes maneuvering the carpet cleaner around when in use, and taking it out and placing back into the closet so easy. Most of Bissell’s typical upright carpet cleaners are bulkier and heavier weighing 24 lbs or more.
The carpet cleaner has a 7-foot hose and 3” stain tool. Some models also have a pet stain tool. All these attachments collectively make cleaning furniture and stairs so much easier, and even tacking tougher pet stains and spots. The additional low profile foot of Express Cleaning mode makes cleaning under and around furniture so easy and quick, without the need of moving furniture out of the way.
