There aren’t very many things as rewarding as owning a pet. Just being around is enough to have a puppy jumping for joy (kittens, not so much). But no matter how satisfying and fun owning a pet can be, their tiny little messes can drive us up the wall! If you know what we’re talking about, it might be time to invest in a carpet cleaner.
Today, we’re going to take a look at the ProHeat 1548F Upright Carpet Cleaner from Bissell – a magnificent product that cleans and eliminates odors from all carpets and rugs. Let’s see what the 1548F is packing and how well it performs.
Max Clean Mode – More Efficient than Ever!
The first thing we’d like to point out is the new Max Clean Mode. This mode differs from normal high-power suction by making use of all 12 rows of the dual rotating dirt-lift power brushes. With Max Clean Mode, shaggy carpets and rugs can be thoroughly cleaned without having to spend a fortune on hiring a professional. For the oldest, stiffest stains on carpet fibers, switch to max Clean Mode for the best results.
Super-long 7-foot Hose with Spot-Cleaning Tools
Just because this is an upright carpet cleaner doesn’t mean it can’t do a bit of spot-cleaning as well. The 1548F comes with a long 7-foot detachable hose and two cleaning attachments. The first is a 3-inch tough stain tool for upholstery, carpeted stair steps, and even auto interiors.
The second is a pet stain tool that uses long bristles to completely remove the nastiest, foulest stains. The tinier inlets on these cleaning tools focus more suction power per square inch of the surface, so if you have particularly hard-to-remove splotches on carpets, switch to one of the cleaning attachments for more concentrated cleaning.
Humongous 1-gallon Clean-Water Tank
Since upright carpet cleaners don’t need to be lifted and carried around nearly as often as portable units, a larger clean-water tank only makes sense. The 1548F comes with a massive 1-gallon tank. With such a large container of water, you won’t need to refill the tank with warm water nearly as often as you would with competing models. This is not a performance-adding factor, but it does increase the convenience of using this tool since it can cover wider areas per tankful of water.
This carpet cleaner uses the magical properties of heated water to dissolve tough, caked-on stains for quick-and-easy lifting. You do this by pouring warm to hot water (NOT BOILING) into the 1-gallon clean-water tank. The 1548F uses Heatwave Technology to keep the water at a constant warm temperature to ensure that every last drip of water is heated to dissolve whatever splotches are on your carpet.
22-foot Power Cord for Unrestricted Movement
The 1548F draws power from a wall outlet via the super-long 22-foot power cord. With this long of a cord, you can cover roughly 1,500 square feet of space without unplugging the upright. Feel free to use an extension cord to increase your range of movement by several feet. This will get rid of the hassle of cleaning an entire floor’s wall-to-wall carpeting.
Roughly 30-minute Drying Time
But perhaps the best thing about the 1548F’s performance is its mighty suction pressure. A single sweep of the 1548F will get rid of up to 90% of the moisture from the water tank. When all is said and done, it’ll only take about a half an hour for your carpets to return to their dry state and ready to be tramped by dirty paws and boots.
Not as Deep-Cleaning as We Hoped
There is one downside worth mentioning about the 1548F. Quite a few customers have complained about this tool’s inability to clean high-pile carpeting and rugs at the roots. On the surface, it works extremely well, but its bristles will never be able to reach the roots of the carpet fiber.
This, in our opinion, isn’t that big of a problem. If it can touch the roots, there’s a huge risk that the bristles might accidentally pull the fibers out, leaving bald spots all over your beautiful carpets and rugs.
From our review, you can tell that we love the BISSEL ProHeat 2x Revolution Carpet Cleaner. It’s one of the best carpet cleaners on the market, and it’s made for pet owners across the world who have to deal with muddy tracks and filthy surprises regularly.
Take our word for it – with the BISSEL 1548F in your closet. You won’t have to worry about permanent stains on your carpets ever again!
