How To Deep Clean

Deep cleaning is almost as easy as vacuuming your carpets! These three steps will walk you through the deep cleaning process.
  • Step 1:
  • Add BISSELL formula with Scotchgard™ protector (such as Fiber Cleansing, Multi-Allergen Removal, or Pet Odor & Soil Removal) to your deep cleaning machine as stated on your machine's instructions. Next add hot tap water (not boiling water) to the deep cleaning machine. Plug in the machine, turn it on, and start deep cleaning. It is that simple!
  • Step 2:
  • Once you have finished cleaning, just attach the Scotchgard protector applicator tool to your on board hose, twist on the Scotchgard protector cartridge, and spray the entire carpet. For best results, apply the protection to DAMP carpet and upholstery. This added protection will give your carpet a long lasting protective shield from dirt and spills. This added protection is exclusive to BISSELL's ProHeat 2X deep cleaning system.
  • Step 3:
  • Put your deep cleaning machine away and relax!

    BISSELL's Real Clean Technology™

    BISSELL's Real Clean Technology formulas contain no dyes, phosphates, and optical brighteners. This means no "colored water," no optical brighteners that can cause discoloration, and no environmentally harmful phosphates — just real cleaning ingredients for a Real Clean. Plus, BISSELL formulas are specially designed for safe use in all of today's deep cleaning machines.

    While most carpeting manufactured is mill treated with a stain-resisting formula, the manufacturers still recommend regular deep cleaning to remove dust mite allergen, pollens, embedded dirt and ground-in grit to prevent permanent damage to the carpet fibers. BISSELL formulas have been designed to meet these needs. For optimum cleaning and protection, always use BISSELL formulas and a BISSELL deep cleaning machine.

    Carpet manufacturers also recommend the reapplication of stain resisting formula at least every two years by a professional carpet cleaner or once a year using the BISSELL with Scotchgard protector clean and protect system. This will help to replenish the loss in stain resistance that may occur through normal wear of the carpet. With BISSELL formulas using Real Clean Technology containing Scotchgard protector from 3M, you are now able to clean and protect your carpet at the same time. These formulas have revolutionized the deep cleaning industry! And when they are used with a BISSELL ProHeat series deep cleaning machine, this combination produces the only consumer-use deep cleaning system that maintains the Scotchgard protection carpet stain warranty.
