Bissell ProHeat 2X Healthy Home Full Sized Carpet Cleaner

Bissell ProHeat 2X Healthy Home Full Sized Carpet CleanerThe Bissell ProHeat 2X Healthy Home Full Sized Carpet Cleaner features a 12 amp motor to deliver enough cleaning power to tackle tough stains and high traffic areas of the home. The name of this cleaning appliance “Healthy Home” is based on the bacteria-fighting capabilities offered by the machine’s Microban antimicrobial protection. Bacteria and other microbes are prevented from growing and spreading throughout the cleaner which may otherwise be transferred back into the home.

The built-in water heater provides more cleaning power. Many home carpet cleaning appliances allow for the use of hot water in the tanks, but they do not actually heat the water. When the water loses temperature, it loses its cleaning power. That problem is solved with the Bissell ProHeat 2X Healthy Home Full Sized Carpet Cleaner.


This home carpet cleaner features surround suction and DirtLifter® power brushes. The brushes get to work at even the toughest stains while the powerful suction capabilities quickly removed debris and other dirt particles from the carpet fibers. The cleaner has 12 rows of these power brushes for maximum cleaning. The CleanShot® Stain Busting feature sprays a concentrated stream of cleaning solution onto stains which allows them to be removed quickly and easily.

The water tank holds one gallon of water. Not the largest tank of cleaners on the market, but this makes the cleaner lightweight. The tank incorporates a 2-in-1 water tank system where the clean water is contained in a separate bladder with the dirty water then flowing into the tank.

Detergent is housed in a separate compartment allowing users to shampoo and rinse separately. The Bissell Proheat 2x has four settings which can be adjusted for different levels of cleaning power. Heavy traffic provides the deepest cleaning option, with normal and light options, as well as a simple water rinse.

Microban is an additive that is used in cleaning solutions to help prevent the growth and spread of bacteria. While giving an extra dose of protection, this additive also helps protect carpet fibers from degradation. The Bissell ProHeat 2X Healthy Home carpet cleaning appliance offers Microban antimicrobial protection to help prevent bacteria and microbes from growing and breeding inside the machine itself.

With a 27 foot cord, this machine can be used for large rooms and won’t need to be unplugged and replugged when moving from room to room, which can significantly cut down cleaning time. The hand tool set offers even more versatility.

The machine comes with four great tools, including a stain tool to really work at tough spots. The stair tool aids in the cleaning of carpeted staircases and the spraying crevice tool allows for cleaning of very hard-to-reach spots. A turbo brush makes cleaning upholstered furniture easy.

Ease of Use

One of the more popular models in Bissell’s floor cleaning line, the ProHeat Upright Deep cleaner is easy to set up right out of the box and allows for easy maneuverability as well. Unlike many carpet cleaners on the market, the ProHeat actually heats water using a built-in water heating system. This allows for longer cleaning times without having to refill the tank with hot water.


The Bissell ProHeat 2X Healthy Home Full Sized Carpet Cleaner comes with a limited one year warranty. More information is available on the company website where customers of Bissell carpet cleaning machines can get answers to questions on their FAQs pages, read how-to guides, get cleaning tips and watch videos.

Customer Reviews

Home carpet cleaning customers tend to prefer a two-tank system over a single tank or two-in-one type of tank system, however, the Bissell ProHeats tank keeps the machine lightweight so it’s easier to push, pull and carry. Customers also appreciate the indicator which lets them know when it’s time to change the water in the tank and the option of using heated water is a great feature that allows for spot cleaning tough stains as well as an all-around better clean of dirty carpets. The antimicrobial protection aspect of the carpet cleaner provides an added peace of mind as well. While some customers who have purchased and used this machine may admit that this Bissell cleaner is not the same as having a professional steam clean, they do feel that the option to use heated hot water provides extra cleaning power and does a great job rooting out tough stains and brightening up high traffic areas of their homes.


The Bissell ProHeat 2X Healthy Home Full Sized Carpet Cleaner is priced in the mid range of home carpet cleaners. It offers plenty of cleaning power and has a long cord which makes it good for cleaning multiple rooms in one pass. The Microban antimicrobial protection helps fight bacteria and prevents them from breeding in the machine’s components. This additive can also help prevent the carpet fibers from degrading as they may otherwise and can keep carpets looking newer and cleaner.
