Bissell Big Green

I just have to share with you my thoughts about the BISSELL Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine Professional Grade Carpet Cleaner, 86T3 I bought this as a "gift" to myself. I hated the process of renting a rug cleaner. Go to the store hope they have one available, lug it into my car, drive home, lug it out of my car and into the house. Then I only had 24 hours to clean carpets and many times over exerted myself trying to get everything done in that time frame. Then many times waking up the next day to find the carpets were still damp. Going back over a few spots and repeating the process of lugging the thing back into the car and back to the store. Then shortly after cleaning my carpets, someone would spill something on them or track something in and I would do my best to clean it up, but waited to repeat the process of cleaning all the carpets again.

 So I started thinking about purchasing one for myself. I really could not justify spending all that money, but I hated having only 24 hours with the rental and honestly moving several rooms of furniture was becoming a bit much. The last time I went to rent a cleaner, I could not find my usual brand available. I went to Lowe's and they offered the Bissell Big Green. Never having used one I was skeptical. I lugged it into my car and went back home.

I found many things I liked about this machine. For one, I did not have to carry the container of clean water and try to pour it into a long skinny opening. I always ended up with a line of water on the carpet that had to be sucked up with the cleaner. It was easy to maneuver and it cleaned in both a forward and backward direction. The cleaning solution comes in several formulas and seems to take less than the other machine. My carpets seem cleaner, are soft after cleaning and I can work on one room at a time at my own convenience. The other great thing is that they are dry in just a couple hours and I can move furniture back where I cleaned. No more having my house in a maze till the carpets dry. If you ever thought of purchasing a carpet cleaner, I highly recommend this one.
