Review ~Bissell Proheat 2x Revolution deep cleaner.


I strongly believe in eating healthy, exercising and living a balanced lifestyle where there is plenty of work and play too. Sometimes despite doing all these things, we develop allergies and intolerances to foods, environment and our surroundings. This is exactly what happened to me. After returning from a holiday to the Lanzarote, I developed a really bad dry cough that lingered and lingered for almost three months, My head and my ribs ached from the constant coughing. The doctors told me I had inhaled the sulphuric volcanic air and that was what had caused my symptoms.
The cough did finally subside but it followed with continuous rhinitis(runny nose, sneezing at the slightest dust particle and a feeling of tight chest.) As a result I was diagnosed as having Asthma and was prescribed an inhaler. 

To help keep my symptoms at bay, I started to deep clean my house, my bedding, pillows and carpets. The carpets were the most difficult as I always had to call out a carpet and upholstery cleaning company to come and clean them . This was also very costly. I had never thought that I could clean my carpets and upholstery myself, that is until the lovely people at Bissell invited me to a roundtable discussion with hygiene expert Dr Lisa Ackerley. The discussion was on  good carpet hygiene, why we should wash our carpets and upholstery regularly and highlight the hidden germs and bugs that are invisibly harbouring amongst the deep fibers. We even saw under a microscope real bedbugs which was gruesome.

I was shocked to learn that many people don't replace their duvets or pillows in a lifetime, nor do they ever clean their carpets or furnishings. Imagine all the food, dirt, mud  pet messes, and accidental accidents from young children all trodden into your carpets day in and day out. Many people wear outdoor shoes in the house, shoes that have walked on all sorts of debris which is later wiped on our carpets.Your carpets may look clean on the surface but you cannot see the invisible dirt and grime that’s underneath in the layers. What we need is a simple carpet cleaning solution that we can use in our home regularly and that is exactly what Bissell have come up with.  They have introduced the Bissell ProHeat 2X® Revolution™ deep cleaner. 
This is an upright carpet cleaner with some great features:
  • It out cleans the leading rental in deep clean mode with Professional formula provided
  • Express clean mode for a dry time of about an hour for ultimate convenience     
  • HeatWave Technology™ to keep water at a consistently warm temperature for optimum cleaning results
  • Weighing just 8kg it is lightweight
  • Low profile foot makes it manoeuvrable under and around furniture and easy to use
  • The 3.7L tank capacity means fewer trips to the sink to empty and re-fill
  • Dual Dirt Lifter Power Brushes™ with 12 rows of bristles for a deep down thorough clean
  • It can be used to spot clean upholstery and area rugs as well as carpets.
  • Easy to assemble and comes with accessories in neat string bag for easy storage.


After learning so much about carpet Hygiene, I was excited to learn that Bissell wanted me to put to test the  ProHeat 2X® Revolution™  on my carpetsI always thought my carpets were well maintained, they were only cleaned about 9 months ago but you will be surprised what actually came out of them after I cleaned them with the  Bissell ProHeat 2X® Revolution™ . ( Please do not judge me on the results, I almost feel ashamed to think how much invisible dirt there still was.

I am going to share some before and after pictures of my rug and carpets. The ProHeat 2X® Revolution™  can be used on two modes the deep clean and the express clean. I chose to use the express clean mode as this means that the carpets are dry in an hour.

Can you imagine if this is what came off my carpets which were only cleaned 9 months ago what must be harbouring in carpets that have never been cleaned ?


This is my rug before cleaning and after after. There was a noticeable change in the colour of the rug.

This is the result from the brown carpet in the hallway, it had a lot of grime as its right by the front door where the majority of dirt comes off our shoes as we enter the house.

Finally this was the results from my daughter's bedroom carpet which had a few stains on it. Since I used the express cleaning programme, the stains did lighten but did not complete come out. I think they needed a deep clean programme. However the overall appearance of the carpet was noticeably cleaner and brighter.


I am now a big fan of this awesome carpet cleaner, it's small enough to store, light enough to lift and 
it was really easy to assemble and operate.The ProHeat 2X® Revolution™ is priced at £299.99 and available from www.bisselldirect.co.uk, Currys, Amazon, Argos, Lakeland, JD Williams, Fenwick. 

With the cleaner you also get a   Trial size (8oz) bottle of Wash & Remove + Antibacterial formula which works exclusively with the ProHeat® 2X Revolution™ to kill odour causing bacteria and permanently remove spots and stains and a trial size (8ox) bottle of Professional formula


I was sent the The ProHeat 2X® Revolution™ to test it on my carpets by Bissell. I was not asked to write a positive review. All the opinions and results shared in this post are of my own experience from taking the challenge.

  1. I'm a big fan of carpet cleaners and I have a Vax cleaner. Carpet cleaners can be expensive but the health and clean carpet benefits are worth it.

  3. I've never cleaned my carpet (I've only lived here for 2 years though, to be fair!) but after seeing the colour of that liquid I think I need to!

  4. This is why I am looking at replacing all our carpets! This article has some really interesting information. Best thing for dust mite allergies or allergic rhinitis is to get rid of carpets and rugs etc, and replace with hard flooring where dust and mites cant linger!

  5. Goodness, amazing results! My stairs and upstairs corridor carpet (the only carpet in the house) could do with a really good clean, I'm very tempted! Did you try it on upholstery too?

  21. We have laminate flooring but the stairs and landing is carpet, we were looking at carpet cleaners just for this when we have the carpets replaced.
    Fab review, will look into this

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have Vax carpet cleaner at home which is similar and it is fantastic. Bissell looks great.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I want one! That looks amazing. Your results after just 9 months makes me cringe at the thought about my results after years, two kids, dirty husband and two dogs...thanks for sharing

    ReplyDelete
  24. This sounds brilliant, I love the fact that it is dry within an hour on the express, as its difficult to keep the children out whilst its drying, brilliant results too.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I really need to clean my carpets - I've been putting it off for ages ;-)

  26. I recently bought a carpet cleaner and the stuff that came up was shocking. For me it was all the cat hair that a standard cleaner doesn't get. So now I try and clean our carpets every 3-6 months

    ReplyDelete
  27. This looks great! We have a vax at the moment which have definitely seen better days. Will keep this in mind when we get another

    ReplyDelete
  28. We only have carpets upstairs and in any future home I would go with a hair floor everywhere. I have a hatred of carpets!

    ReplyDelete
  29. That is pretty impressive and the quickness of the drying time is a definite plus point in terms of convenience.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I love keeping the house in mint shape, this would be amazing to have, especially for our light carpets in the living room which in the three years of us living here have lost their shine!xx

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm pretty sure the duvet/pillows/mattress at the place I'm currently renting haven't been changed in years, which really grosses me out! I'm leaving in a month anyway...
    Looks like a handy tool to have for life :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Ooh I could do with one of those - light carpets and boys are not a good combo, however careful we try to be!

    ReplyDelete
  33. That sounds like an amazing product. My Son has asthma so it's important to get rid of any dust in his room...

    ReplyDelete
  34. Its scary to think what is in our carpets isn't it? The transformation in your pictures is amazing.Our 3 children would give any carpet cleaner a run for its money!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I would love one of these, my carpets could really do with a good deep clean and this looks great!

    ReplyDelete
  36. This looks and sounds great! I have cream carpets all over and a dog!! I bet this would be perfect for me :)

  37. I love my Bissell carpet cleaner - it has got me out of a few tight spots after the kids have been ill
