FAQs and troubleshooting of Bissell Spotclean 3624

can you use this for tile grout?
Answer: No, this is strictly for carpet or upholstery. Unless they make a grout tool for it that I am not aware of.

Question: can you still set this on the spot and clean or do you have to use the hose?
Answer: You have to use the hose. It works well but what they don’t tell you is that when you clean carpets the debris gets caught in the hose nozzle and you can’t really open the brush and clean. I found out that you can clean the hose by cleaning it under hot water. Same thing with the brushes. Mine caught lot of hair.

That being said there’s one specifically with spot cleaner and it’s designed for people with dogs. That one has a circular bottom brush that rotates in that one spot to deep clean dog mess. And there’s a hose as well.

I have both but I find the hose more convenient bc the one with brushing one location doesn’t cover lot of ground.

Question: Any one use a Non-toxic cleaner for material with this machine and the name please
Answer: Yes, I use a product cooked Puracy. All natural, plant based, non- toxic. Just washed rigs and couch today with it.

Question: Does this clean dirty grout?
Answer: I believe that this is made for cleaning carpet and some furniture .

Question: Has anyone used this (with cold water/woolite) on area rugs–like tufted and knotted wool rugs from Pottery Barn?
Answer: I have not used it with cold water or on my wool rug yet . I have used it in my micro fiber sofa and it works very well .

Question: Does this work well for cleaning an entire 9×12 area rug? Seems to be great for spot cleaning but im looking for something to replace a cleaner rental
Answer: No. This is a spot cleaner only.

Question: Is it self heating? What temperature does it heat to?
Answer: I believe it is not self heating when you add the water use the temperature you want it is a great machine

Question: can i use it also for parquet floor?
Answer: I guess you can but you have to remember that this lets out water to suck up the dirt. And parquet floors have Wood grudge snx gkued down and it may float the parquet floor or lift it altogether. I would not suggest if fir that reason.

Question: Is this a vaccum as well?
Answer: You. Can for small areas
You may want to get a shop vac. Or an actual vacuum cleaner

Question: Appliance electrical supply?
Answer:yes it does.

Question: Is the water heated when it comes out of this Machine?
Answer: You have to put hot water in the tank. The machine doesn’t generate hot water on its own.

Question: Would putting tape around the hose before use reinforce it and prevent it from tearing like so many reviewers say happens?
Answer: I suppose it couldn’t hurt. I haven’t had any issues with mine.

Question: Will this remove resturant grease tracked onto low pile carpet by fast food workers?
Answer: Not likely. Grease by nature is oily, right? If you can get really hot water in here you might be able to remove some. I would think a steam cleaner would provide you better results. This does not produce steam. Really high temps are needed to separate that oil from the carpet fibers.

Question: Has anyone tried spot cleaning a sheepskin rug with this?
Answer: No but I did use it on a long shag throw rug and it work ok on that. Good luck with that!

Question: Can I use this on my fabric car seats or hard wood floors? I have 2 small kids and need my car seats to look good. thanks
Answer: I think it would work well on the carseats, I don’t think its meant to clean hard floors, so i would be careful about scratching.

Question: Is a user manual included or only online manual?
Answer: I received a user manual.

Question: How it works on tough stains compared to Bissell Little Green pro heat?
Answer: The tough stains can be taken off by this machine. It works the same way as the bissell little green pro heat. However still leaves water residue.

Question: Does it work on leather seats?
Answer: I have not tried it on leather

Question: How does it do cleaning upholstery, couch, loveseat, does it require cooling off period
Answer: Does really well. Only as hot as the water you use, as it doesn’t steam things. I used it on an old, really dirty microfiber sofa (really filthy, like with food stains, spilled coffee, etc.) Did better than I expected, and didn’t take forever to dry.
