Pros:easy to use, lightweight, cleans up messes well
Cons:none that I have experienced
The Bottom Line:
Homes with pets and children will benefit from having one of these.
We have seven indoor cats who have accidents from time to time, so we need a quick way to clean up after them. I asked for a handheld vacuum that would clean with water for my birthday about 6 years ago. My sister got me the Bissell spot lifter and I have been using it ever since. I like this machine because it is lightweight and very portable. I can use it anywhere, even on the carpeted steps, which makes it nice. The machine comes with a little brush that is very effective at getting the stain to come up. I have really never had a problem with any of the stains not coming up out of the carpet when I have used the Bissell vacuum. It really has lots of suction and power. You use Bissell's Little green formula with this handheld vacuum. The water tank is a dual water tank, so it will not mix the clean water with the dirty water. I would recommend emptying out the dirty water every time you use the machine and rinsing it with clean water just to keep the machine in good use. I think every home should have a machine like this. Since it is so light, it is a lot easier to quick pull this out of the closet than to srag out the entire quicksteamer. It just makes sense to have.
