I was recently given a complimentary use of the Bissell Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine, in exchange for this review. All opinions, and nasty carpet pictures, are completely mine.
I have a terrible confession to make: in over six years living in our home, we’ve never cleaned our carpets. For over four years, they’ve been riddled with little kid grime; yet, we somehow just never got around to getting the carpets cleaned, even though it was always on our long list of things to do. *sigh*
When I was approached with an opportunity to try out the Bissell Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine in my home for a trial period, my husband and I both eagerly jumped at the chance! Tanya from Fizz Word of Mouth Marketing dropped it off, and that very weekend, we got to cleaning!
Well, actually, I was putting the kids down for their naps, and my husband took over the carpet cleaning duties. To be honest, I never got to even TOUCH the Bissell Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine during the entire trial period — my husband was in. the. zone. So, to be perfectly clear, this review is really a second-hand account of HIS use of the machine. But I assure you, it was an incredible experience. 😉
The Bissell Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine proved to be light weight, even when full of the sloshy water and cleaning fluid. I’m not sure if you were supposed to vacuum the carpets before hand -remember, my husband took control and you know men and directions…. In any case, we didn’t, but the dirt was just effortlessly pulled away from our carpets, rugs, stairs (all three flights!), and couches.
The day we did this, it was overcast outside (imagine that, during this summer in Atlanta!), so it was difficult to get great pictures contrasting the clean and dirty carpets. But I managed to capture a few, mainly the rugs in our den. First, my husband did the big one, so I put the runner OVER it afterwards, for comparison purposes. You can clearly see the difference! This is in a super-high traffic area, but those filthy rugs didn’t stand a chance against the Bissell Big Green Deep Cleaning Machine!
With enthusiasm -and the “help” of our daughter, dressed as Princess Merida- we tackled the whole house: all the carpet upstairs (including four bedrooms and a super long hallway), all the downstairs rugs, our carpeted dining room and formal living room, the finished basement (half carpeted), as well as front stair case, back stair case, and the basement stairs.
All in all, each time we poured that nasty water tank in to the laundry room sink, we were assured that we were successfully lifting the grime out of our house. Okay, and we were equally disgusted with the level of filth we’ve been walking upon, and our KIDS had been playing in! With each dumping of the water tank, we felt a little -um- relief knowing that the grimy layer of disgust was literally going down the drain and OUT OF OUR HOUSE!
