update January 23, 2018
What temperature does the heatwave technology maintain the water at? I need to kill any bed bugs in the carpet.

Question: What cleaning solution would you recommend for this? Have some stubborn stains on carpet from previous owners. Don’t know how old the stains are.
Answer: we add vinagar to the bissell solution. if the stain is still there, try the original liquid dawn (turquoise) and just make sure you rinse well. that dawn can be used to get stains out of clothing as well. remember it was used on ducks when there was an oil spill.
