      I'd rather just buy an upright...

      Posted

      Let's just go over all of the categories Best Buy gives you for rating a product. Value for Price: This thing is only $50 cheaper than the standard upright, yet the upright will do your whole house. This products touts being a "set it and forget it" type of device, but that isn't so (more on that a little later). It does come packaged with enough cleaner to do a dozen or so (maybe more) spots, so you are ready to go out of the box. Quality: Strong thick plastics. Doesn't feel cheap at all. Brush heads are actually really nice and adapt to the height of your carpet. I suspect this product will last a long time. No problems here. Features: I can;t really think of a feature it's lacking. You can "set it and forget it" (again, not really), or you can use the hose. Super easy to fill (there is a water fill line followed by a cleaner fill line) as well as a maximum line for waste water. Both containers are spill proof so you don't have to worry about getting water everywhere. Performance: This is where this product failed me. If you have relatively plush carpets, there is no way in hell the "set it and forget it" feature is going to work for you. Sure it will get the stain up, but it just leaves far too much water behind, to the point that if you step there, you feel the water sloshing up through the carpet. The solution we came up with is that you have to use the attachment suction. This works wonderfully, except for the fact that we didn't buy this product to have to get on our hands and knees to clean it. Isn't the point of this thing to take the work out of cleaning the mess up? Bottom line is, if you are torn between this and an upright, just get the upright. You will be able to do your entire home. We are currently renting, so we get a free professional carpet shampooing yearly. We just needed a product to clean up the occasional pet vomit. This product is compact, so with the limited space we have an upright wouldn't work. When we buy a house I will definitely invest in an upright over this item. Would I recommend to a friend? I guess it depends on the circumstances, as I mentioned above. For the sake of this review I will say "yes".

      I was looking for a light-weight, portable solution to cleaning small spots on my carpet that weren't worth the effort of dragging the full-sized steam cleaner upstairs. This product seemed to fit the bill, and according to the specifications page was even cordless. Before purchasing, I read a previous review regarding this product leaving 'crop circles' in the carpet. The reviewer attributed this damage to using a non-manufacturer provided cleaning solution which may have contained a bit of bleach. I thought I would not have a problem like this... I purchased this carpet specifically because the color was embedded into the fibers and could be cleaned with bleach. I have spot cleaned the carpet with bleach on a number of occasions with no damage. Despite using only the standard cleaning sample provided with the product #not even using the "oxy-gen" cleaning booster solution also provided#, this Spot Bot was able to accomplish what a scrubbing with pure bleach had been unable to do: totally destroy the carpet. I believe the basic design flaw is in having the Spot Bot sit on a single location of carpet without moving, spinning brushes for several minutes on the same spot until the carpet is worn down. Anyway, I'm returning the product today, and will never use this again. I guess it's back to the full-size Hoover steam cleaner. Hope it takes out the 'crop circles'. And one more thing... despite the 'cordless' indication on the specification page, this product is indeed CORDED.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      I have two dogs and, needless to say, they make messes on the carpet. I hate having to pull out the large steam cleaner just to get rid of one spot. I also don't like having to get down on my hands and knees to manually clean and/or use an appliance. Enter the SpotBot. This is exactly what I was looking for with a spot cleaner. Fill the chamber with water and some solution, put the device on the stain, and it does the rest. Pick it up, drain the waste compartment, and you're good to go. There are three modes when using the SpotBot: surface stain, set-in stain, and manual mode where you use the hand tool. I've used the hand tool once just to try it out and it works but manually scrubbing the carpet kind of defeats the purpose of having this as Bissell makes a manual spot cleaning device that costs half as much as this. Generally speaking, the surface stain setting (which takes about 3 minutes vs the 7 minutes for the set-in stain setting) is enough to get things clean. I've clean dog urine, stuck on dog fecal matter, dog vomit, spilled soda, spilled fruit juice, chili sauce, and various other things from my off-white carpet and the SpotBot is able to take care of every stain. The only thing you have to make sure is that you use the SpotBot as soon as you are aware of a stain. Old stains, ones that have been set-in for years, aren't going to be removed by this unless you discover some special cleaner that I haven't come across. I use multiple types of cleaners, anything made for a large carpet shampooer/steam cleaner will work with this. I knocked this off by one star as the device is pretty noisy, I can hear the scrubbing brushes through the floor when I'm in the basement cleaning the first floor. It also beeps whenever it is done and doesn't stop until you hit the "finish" button. Overall though, this appears to perform a deep clean on my carpet and I've used it on Berber and standard carpet along with rugs. It's a nifty little device that makes cleaning spots easy so you don't have to pull out any large equipment. It's easy to setup, use, clean, and then store away. The SpotBot is a little on the expensive side (seeing as how you can buy full sized carpet cleaners for $25-$50 more) but it's worth it for the convenience. Plus the cleaning head is pretty much the perfect size for capturing pet messes so you can just "set it and forget it."

      Not Perfect but Way Better Than Doing It Manually

      I read the reviews before purchasing and was a bit concerned about some of the comments I saw, i.e. it makes one round clean spot that more noticeable than the stain, it creates a tuft of carpet fiber in the center of the circle, going through the cleaner solution quickly, and reports of some leaks. The reason I purchased anyway was because of another review that said that she could deal with any minor issues if it meant she didn't have to clean the carpet manually. I was sold. And I agree... The value you get in this is not having to go through the whole blot, spray, blot thing that takes forever (not to mention a TON of paper towel). All of the comments at put at the top from other reviews? Yep, I experienced the same things (except about one round clean spot - it's noticeable until it dries and once you vaccuum the area as per normal, it's completely gone). But my cat went through some major GI issues that resulted in regular vomitting from January until end of April. That's a LOT of blot, blot, blot, spray... etc. Plus that method isn't always completely effective. Being able to put this thing on the area to take care of it for me is competely worth the price in my mind. So you have to buy cleaner. So there are a few drips once in a while when you pick it up. So the spot takes a while to dry. At least it's clean (thoroughly) and I didn't have to do it. ***As another reviewer stated, definitely use the manual hose attachment to suck up more of the liquid once the SpotBot does it's thing. It dramatically shortens the drying time***

      I would like to address a few of the comments in reviews . I have had 2 of these and am on my third as it is used so often and works so AWESOME! First off. when you have a urine accident you need to use paper towels to absorb majority of the urine. Just press paper towels about 6-8 thick down and let Bounty do the work. Then put spot bot on it. Same with puke. Clean up the mess then use machine. On the topic of plush carpet and crop circles. Plush carpet may be a tad extra wet. As my carpet is extremely plush and thick I am aware. However, all I do is again a few paper towels after wards and presto, no biggie. Crop circles. Yes it will make a circle. but don't keep the circle. Use foot with shoe on or hand and "vacuum " the mark. move foot or hand over circle so that carpet goes back in to the line formation like when you vacuum. and presto crop circle gone and wont leave a drying circle either. On the bleaching effect. Lets just say you need to wash your carpets. We all have to wash carpets periodically if you have pets, or kids. I have oatmeal colored carpets and 3- 100 pound dogs in a smaller house. We use spot bot a good bit as we almost always have a baby puppy or a senior dog. Accidents will happen. When the oxy clean is getting spot cleaner than the whole we clean the whole carpet. Maybe 2-3 times a year, on average. Upright cleaners. BEST IS RUG DOCTOR professional . We have gone thru many and this one is by far the best. Buy it or rent it at your grocery or lumber store. Hope this helps other people as the machine is great at its job you jsut have to do your part too.

      We had a previous model of this for many years and when it finally broke we neglected to purchase a new one. We finally came to our senses an bought this one as we missed the convenience so much! As I said, overall this is a great product but there are a few small things that keep it from 5 stars. The hose for the attachement is very tightly wrapped around the base of this unit. We feel that the unnecessary strain was what eventually led to our previous unit breaking. The could have easily made the hose a little longer to give it some slack and provided a clip to keep it from moving. For cleaning, it does a fairly good job, especially considering you get to set it down and walk away. Larger messes need multiple treatments with an overlapping pattern but not a big deal. I would recommend using the hose attachment on the cleaned circle to suck up the remaining water as it always leaves some behind. I imagine it just can't create enough suction with an 8" area to get it all. You will also minimize the obvious circle left behind, depending on the type of carpet you have. Low pile won't be effected that much I imagine. Anyway, don't hesitate to get one of these if you have a lot of small messes to clean up from pets or kids! We use ours all the time and can easily live with any shortcomings for the added convenience. Oh, it is also nice and portable so you are hauling a massive carpet cleaner out to clean up a tiny mess.

      So it doesn't happen too often, but occasionally we won't catch on that one of the pups was telling us they needed outside... when accidents occur the spot bot is awesome! You fill it up with water and the soap solution, set it on the stain and walk away. There is an option for "set in stain" which is for when you didn't notice when it first happened and has dried.(6 minutes) There is also an option for surface stain which you use when it just happened.(3 minutes) There is also an option for using the hose and cleaning by hand. We moved into a brand new build and got this. We've used it for more than just the pets... Spill a drink-spot bot. Done. The solution seems to be great as well! The dogs don't stop to smell pervious cleaned areas, or attempt to remark their spots. The one downside that we have found is how wet the spot is afterwards. It doesn't seem to pic back up as much moisture as we would prefer. This might also just be kind of the norm, as professional cleaners leave you carpet the same way. We have used the hand nozzle to remove some of the excess moisture and have also not and the carpet seems to have the same result after drying. Perfect! In the end this thing is a must, even for non pet owners. Super simple, no time to set up. As simple as a spill/stain seems and maybe you don't need to use the spot bot, why wouldn't you? It's so quick and guarantees your carpet will last! We would recommend this to anyone.

      This is our second unit. The older unit was about two years old but we're replacing because I'd been using baking soda to clean with and it was starting to cake on the suction hose and I think it might have been taking its toll on the inner machinery as well. Both the old and the new unit have done their job at cleaning up pet spots well, otherwise we wouldn't be buying the same unit again. Two recommendations I have: 1) Clean it regularly, both the waste tank and the unit itself, as suggested in the manual and online videos. Don't let waste water sit in the tank without emptying right after use, or it could cake inside the waste tank without being able to easily be removed. 2) If you use baking soda instead of the premade cleaning formulas to clean the carpet, make sure you don't use too much, and it will be a must to clean the hose/unit regularly or the baking soda will start to cake on the inside of the hose.
