BISSELL PowerClean 2X 4

After having a rather disastrous experience with a well-known carpet cleaner hire service the thought of cleaning my carpets filled me with dread, however thankfully not all carpet cleaners are created equally.

The BISSELL PowerClean 2X is a new release from BISSELL and can be used to refresh your carpets and upholstery and all manner of difficult to reach places thanks to the stain tool and 2-in-1 crevice tool. It comes with the Wash and Protect Pro formula sample to help extract embedded dirt, remove tough stains and leave the floor feeling clean and fresh. The 3” Tough Stain Tool has an 8-foot hose making it ideal for using on the stairs or sofa, the floor head features four rows of bristle and the motorized Deep Reach PowerBrush that works deep into the carpet.

The PowerClean 2X is easy to put together, it isn’t the lightest of things its just under 8kg which is still lighter than some carpet cleaners but when you add the water it is a bit of a lump to get it up the stairs. Saying that when it’s switched on the motorised brush helps to move the machine around comfortably, unfortunately the machine doesn’t let you know when its run out of water, but you can tell on the carpet that it has, it also sounds a little different. Talking of sound, you might want to pop the pets out the way whilst you clean as it makes quite a noise, this it’s a huge issue unless you are using it every other day, then you might want to get some earplugs.

Once you have finished cleaning, remove the carpet brush roll and nozzle, empty the dirty water tank and rinse both thoroughly, we found some cat hair was stuck in the dirty water tank but again this isn’t a huge issue. The Express Clean Mode is a good choice for maintaining the carpet instead of giving it a deep clean, this uses less water so you will only have to wait about 45mins for the carpet to dry instead of a couple of hours (temperature and carpet style depending). The PowerClean 2X did a lovely job of cleaning the carpet, getting the speed right is important to avoid damp patches and lines on the carpet when it dries. The handheld tool works well too, in fact you will find your self looking for stuff to clean because seeing that dirty water fill the tank is oh so satisfying. RRP £219.99
