Hey all! It’s Kimberly, one of Collin’s Sidekicks!

I am sure I am not alone in my battle to keep the carpets in my home clean. The struggle of keeping them clean with four kids and a dog is real, ya’ll. Somedays I can hardly believe the amount of food that gets dropped, drinks that get spilled and dirt that gets tracked in. In spite of my ‘no drinks or food on the carpet’ rule, the carpets still end up stained and dirty.

A couple years ago I grabbed a deal we posted on this Bissell Big Green Deep Cleaning Professional Grade Carpet Cleaner Machine! You guys, this machine has saved my carpets more times than I can count! I have had other carpet cleaning machines in the past, but with as much as I used them they all seemed to only last about a year and never seemed to get everything completely out of the carpets.

This Bissell Professional Grade Carpet Cleaner Machine is by far the best carpet cleaning machine I have owned. It’s super easy to use, and it works so well. I actually used it four times over the past two days and need to use it again already because as I sit here and type this my dog just threw up on the carpet. 😳

I paid a little under $300 for mine when I got it and it has been worth every penny! This is so much more cost effective for me than hiring someone to clean my carpets or even renting a carpet cleaner. Plus, I don’t have to wait to get them cleaned. No scheduling an appointment or running to a store to rent a machine.

When stains show up on the carpet, I grab my Bissell carpet cleaner, put some hot water and cleaning solution in bottom compartment, attach it back to the machine, start that baby up and a minute or two later the stains are gone and my carpets are clean again! Then I just empty the dirty water out and it’s ‘Bye, Bye dirt! Hello clean carpets!’. SO EASY!

The best part is that it’s made really well and it’s holding up fine in spite of me using it multiple times a week – sometimes multiple times a day! It’s light enough that me and my bad back can carry it upstairs (it is a little awkward due to it’s size). It also has an attachment so you can clean stairs and upholstery if you need to.

Bissell Big Green Deep Cleaning Professional Grade Carpet Cleaner Machine, this mom thanks you for helping me keep my carpets clean.

Oh, this is not a sponsored post. I just wanted to share a purchase I’ve been so happy I made with all of you. Hopefully it helps any of you that are in the market for a really good quality carpet cleaner.

    Wow thanks for this post! I’ve been wanting to buy a carpet cleaner but couldn’t decide! Thank you so much!

    I have a carpet cleaner but don’t like using it for smaller spots because then it will be the only clean spot in the whole room! Lol!

    • Kimberly (Stylish Sidekick)

      😂 So True!

  3. Hunterwoody

    We own this one…the one you rent from Lowe’s. It’s awesome! Two kids and three labs❤️

    I bought this last week and love it!

    Is this a good machine for cleaning stairs?

    • Kimberly (Stylish Sidekick)

      Hi Sonya! Yes it is great for cleaning stairs, however it is a little awkward so you may need a 2nd person to hold the unit steady while you use the attachments to clean the stairs.

  6. Momma

    I looove this machine- I only wish we had paid that little for it!

    My only warning is how heavy it is- if you plan on using it for stairs, have a helper to keep it steady while you use the hose. I personally can not lift it up and down the stairs, but I am also kind of a wimp.

    We have a smaller Bissell that we got as a wedding gift over 12 years ago. 2 houses, 2 kids, 3 dogs and 3 cats later it’s still going strong! And everyone laughed at me for for not registering for china, silverware, etc. but registering for a carpet cleaner. I’m getting the last laugh!!!

    Could you use this machine for sofa/chairs? I really need to freshen those up before the holidays!

    • Kimberly (Stylish Sidekick)

      Hi HBee. It does have an attachment for upholstery. I have personally used it for that and it worked great, however it IS recommended you do a test area first in a spot that no one will really see so you can see how it effects the fabric, since all furniture fabric can vary. I hope this helps.


    I have this and Loooove it!!!

    Thank you for sharing this. I was leaning towards a Rug Doctor since that’s what the stores rent out. Your review made up my mind for the Bissell.

    • Lillian

      I rented a Rug Doctor,was not happy with the job it did. Later on rented Bissell from Lowes,couldn’t tell enough people about it,finally bought myself one,worth every cent I paid for it. Check out videos on you tube also to see for yourself.

      • Kimberly (Stylish Sidekick)

        I totally agree, Lillian… worth EVERY cent!

    • Kimberly (Stylish Sidekick)

      You’re welcome, Sunflower! Glad it helped! I’m sure you’ll love yours as much as I love mine!

    Scored this one a few years ago when posted on hip2save as one day deal on This machine is amazing and I would totally recommend. We have two kids and a dog and its cleaned up tons of messes. We previously had the kind of carpet cleaner that looked more like upright vacuum and it was good but not great. The reviews when I purchased were also very high on amazon with 4-1/2 stars with over 3000+ reviews.

  12. Janice

    I have this exact same one and I love it! I went through quite a few of Bissel’s regular carpet cleaners and they kept breaking down on me. Their customer service is great, however, I was getting tired of getting a new replacement when it would break down within the year. So I finally gave in and bought this one for $299.99- worth every penny. It’s about 2.5 years old and I have had no issues with it. I lend it to friends and family all the time. For the price I paid once to rent a similar one, it’s already paid for itself.
