Walmart desc is incorrect. Unit has a 6.5 AMP motor, not 12 AMPs. But there is lots of power when using machine.\nThe Brushes work great. If you have a \"Loop type rug\", the Brushes Do Not pull carpet Strings from the carpet. Reason; the Bar Brushes are Not fixed on the machine. They Float over the carpet.\nHint: When filling tank, add water first then add the shampoo, them top off with water. You will Not get lots of Foam this way.\n\nI was VERY surprised on how well unit worked.
I got this because I was thrilled to see one for less than it would cost to do the carpets in my apartment. Ordered it online, and picked it up at the store. Brought it up, and right away put it together and got to work. Followed all instructions. Vacuumed my carpet twice just in case prior to using the machine. The brushes didn't touch the carpet at all, and all it did was spit solution out and suck SOME solution up. Instead of them being wet for maybe an hour or two, they were wet for 5 hours and NOT even clean! Truly disappointed! When I brought it back to Walmart, they took it back without an issue but then told me it would take over a week to get my money back! Never again!

A pet owner's new bestfriend!
I have two furbabies and this product was purchased solely for cleaning up their messes. The machine is light-weight, easily portable and small to store in easily accessible places. I use the Bissell brand cleaning solutions and it has removed some terrible stains from my carpet and furniture. I have had no problems with suction, or other movable pieces. Great product for the price.
This carpet cleaner is just simply amazing!!! I so love my new toy! It pulled 15 years worth of dirt and pet dander, etc out of the carpet in 3 or 4 passes and made the carpet 5 times lighter then it was. Yes it is a little bulky and it won't quite reach all the way to the edges of the walls, however the hose attachment works great for that (the hose attachment did use more cleaning solution) and it left the carpet just as dry as the machine itself. The cleaner also pulled sand\/grit\/rocks out of the carpet from who knows where (I vacuum the carpet on a daily basis) and it pulled out dog hair from a bloodhound that died almost 3 years ago (since she died I have cleaned the carpet with a hoover cleaner at least 3 times). In the attached picture you can see on the left the edge where the cleaner did not get and the clean streak in the middle of the floor with the dog laying on the edge of it. (The carpets were dry at this time and had been vacuumed 2 times). Since then I have used the hose\/attachment and cleaned up the edges and they look just as clean as the rest of the carpet. I love this cleaner, the attachments, and the products you use with them. It was also easy to figure out how to use, and clean up at the end of using it. My husband even described this cleaner as amazing (he is very picky person on appliances was very very very skeptical). I used the Bissell professional 2x cleaner and it worked great and did not smell \"flowery\" or artificial at all. When I vacuumed the carpet after it was dry (about 2 hours) the vacuum pulled up tons more hair and grit that the cleaner pulled up. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this cleaner and highly recommend it! Anyone who has pets, kids or old carpet needs this cleaner - it is well worth the price!
Puts out powerful steam & does not leak! With the grout cleaning attachment, I cleaned the caulking along my kitchen sink that no other cleaner could get out in 7 years. Have also been using to get out the built up grime along the borders where kitchen cabinets meet floor. In my bathroom, the handheld steaming attachment eliminated most of the soap scum on shower walls; however, it does not break thru lime scale buildup. That's probably asking too much though. :) With main floor unit, the steam, at strongest setting, eventually pulled up the shine on my no wax floor, but this just proved to me that I'm getting a very deep clean. I don't mind regular mopping w\/a no wax floor cleaner once per month to restore the shine. The steamers pad does get very wet quickly on strongtest setting, which does make the unit heavier to push, but not worse than a cotton mop. For touch up cleanings (which you'll do more frequently, since it's so easy to do), you won't need to continually depress the steam button anyway, which will reduce the soaked pad issue, AND your floors will dry faster. I don't have hardwood floors, but I'm pretty certain that one would only need the lighter setting for hardwood, thereby eliminating the overly wet floor issue. I would HIGHLY recommend this steam mop & will probably buy again when this one dies. Time will tell if steam capacity remains consistent after several months worth of use.
