Looking for a portable spot cleaning carpet cleaner? Well you needn’t look much farther as the Bissell SpotClean Professional Portable Carpet Cleaner 3624 is one of Bissell’s most powerful portable spot cleaning machines.
It’s has well-designed handtool bristles and powerful suction which helps clean carpet stains and spots, pet stains, upholstery and carpets by loosening and then lifting the stain. Its 5-ft flexible hose, hand tools and extra long cord all make this carpet cleaner easily reach and remove stains and spots from even difficult and hard-to-reach carpeted and upholstered areas.
The Bissell Pro SpotClean is compact and easy to move around as it weighs only 13.2 lbs when empty. As it is only about 14” wide and deep and 10” high and its hose neatly wraps around the it’s side, its storage is not a problem.
Varied hose options
Not many companies except for Bissell offers 5 different, great quality hose options. While the 5 hoses are meant to clean different types of dirt, one usually does all 5 tasks. They are all different in size and can be used one after the other to prolong the hose area life.
Optimal suction power
It is the carpet cleaner’s 5.7amp motor which provides it with superior suction power easily giving competition to larger Bissell upright cleaner models. It in fact removes stains and spills as efficiently as larger upright cleaners do to give superior cleaning results.
Large water tanks
With its large ¾ gallon or 96 ounce water tanks, you make fewer refilling trips if you have lots of spots or items to clean. The cleaner has two tanks; one for clean water and the other for dirty water which is better than single tank set-ups.
As the machine is small and lightweight, it can be easily carried to the sink for emptying and refilling tanks. Its flat bottom provides the stability while filling. While a full tank of water with two capfuls of Bissell cleaning formula is needed for large cleaning tasks, half tank and a single capful of detergent is enough for smaller jobs.
The Bissell Pro SpotClean comes with two spray and brush tools. It’s 3” tough stain brush helps remove tough stains from confined locations like cushions, vehicle upholstery and area rugs while it’s 6” stair tool is helps clean slightly wider areas or stairs.
Unlike larger upright carpet cleaners which have motorized bristle handtools, the brush tools in the Bissell SpotClean portable carpet cleaner are not motorized. They do not rotate or do any powered or turbo scrubbing.
While a motorized brushing tool can be bought separately, it’s a non-motorized brush seems to work better for this Bissell carpet cleaner. Motorized scrubbing systems are a wiser option for upright carpet cleaners and not for spot cleaners as the brush may stop its action even if there’s less pressure pushing on it.
Easy to use
You can use the Bissell 3624 SpotClean Pro machine as soon as it reaches you as its fully assembled and ready to work. Just fill the tank with water and formula, attach and detach the respective tools and you can start using it.
While removing spots, you need to press a trigger to spray a detergent solution mix to the spot and then move the brush head back and forth to scrub and suck out the water. You can use a spray bottle instead of the machine’s spray trigger to apply the water/cleaning solution for small cleaning jobs.
It is easily used for cleaning stairs and tight spots and corners while its 22 feet long cord helps the cleaner reach and clean different spots in the room and for cleaning auto interiors.
