You might be wondering who needs a carpet cleaner when you have a vacuum cleaner at home?
While the vacuum cleaner is not bad at getting rid of the dirt, it cannot be used to get rid of deeply entrenched stains and marks. At this point, a carpet cleaner is of extreme help. They help you get rid of the tough stains and give your carpet a new and shiny look.
Carpet cleaners come in different types and sizes. There isn’t a single cleaner that you can call the best one. It all depends on your needs. People sometimes take carpet cleaning machines for rent. However, my advice would be to purchase it as it is more convenient. Here in this article, we mention the best carpet cleaning machines for home so that you can easily select the best suited for your needs.
1. Bissell ProHeat 2x Revolution Carpet Cleaner
The Bissell Prroheat has been beautifully designed. It comes in sharp Ref, Grey, and Black colors. The carpet cleaner has a 3.7-liter clean tank, dual brush bards, 800 W motors, a rotating brush bar, a 2.1m long hose, an option of deep clean and alternative modes, and three fragrant choices.
Filling and emptying the clean and dirty water containers is tremendously simple and the Bissell was easy to assemble. Whether you want to fill or empty the water containers, or assemble the Bissell, the ProHeat 2x carpet cleaner is very super easy to assemble. It comes with a 6-year guarantee so you can use it with confidence. However, one problem is the noise that the cleaner makes.
2. Rug Doctor Deep Carpet Cleaner
This masterpiece from brand Rug Doctor has been designed for residential usage but comes with features of a commercial cleaner. It has a one-pass system which allows you to do more work in less time and is also very gentle on the carpet.
It has a large brush, a huge brush bar roller with an option of oscillating brush cleaning, 1300W powerful motor for high-intensity cleaning, and a fold-down handle. The clean and wastewater tank are flippable and can be pulled away from the cleaner easily. Also, they are placed on the top of the floor head, which reduces the pressure on your hand.
The Rug Doctor runs on two rear wheels, which are quite large. The switch is exclusive for the vacuum, and you will need to use the trigger to start the spray and cleaning brush at once. It comes with a slew of cleaning options. You have the settings for carpet cleaning, lower power to use the tool and hose, and the super spray option for deep cleaning.
3. BISSELL CrossWave Multi-Surface Floor Cleaner (1713)
If you are looking for a single cleaner for both your carpet and floor cleaning needs, this might be the ideal choice for you. The Bissell CrossWave Cleaner has been designed to clean both hard floors and the carpet and can easily be switched between the two modes. You have to push a button.
The cleaner is a bit high priced compared to other models, but because it is a 2 in 1 cleaner, the price can be justified. It has a sleek design, is easy to move around and is highly comfortable even after using it for a long time. It has a clean capacity of approximately 828 ml and a dirt capacity of 620 ml. Therefore, you won’t have to change the bags frequently.
One major problem is its large motor. It makes it impossible to clean under furniture and difficult to clean around the corners. However, a welcoming feature is the option of vacuuming and washing simultaneously.
The tools included with the Bissell CrossWave are a storage tray and a brush roll frying tray. It has a little weight of 5 kg, which, as we mentioned earlier, makes it easy to maneuver.
4. Bissell SpotBot Pet Spot and Stain Cleaner (2117A)

The Bissell Stain Cleaner has powerful brushes at the bottom of the device that has been designed to remove even the toughest of the stains. It is possible because the brush performs four hundred revolutions while cleaning. The cleaner comes in two modes. One is Quick Clean Mode, and the other is Deep Clean Mode. The former is for stains that have been there just for a few hours while the latter is for deep stains, i.e. those which have been present for a more extended period.
An interesting (and maybe surprising part) of the cleaner is its automatic cleaning option. Instead of you moving the machine manually, you have to set it on the part of the floor to be cleaned watch it from your couch. It is the reason why the Bissell Spotbot pet cleaner is called a “hands-free” device. It weighs a mere 14 pounds and is one of t.

The HOOVER PowerDash Pet Carpet Cleaner has a sleek and compact design. Its small size allows it to transition between multiple sites quite quickly. However, the sleek design is also a weakness.
