The biggest difference between the Hoover and the Bissell was that the Bissell heats the cleaning solution for you, and the Hoover requires you to fill the solution tank with hot water.
These are all "Pet" solutions. I have one dog that stays outdoors, but I think my 5 kids could give any pet a run for its money.
(Just wait until you see the next picture.)
Note to self: don't empty dirty water into bathroom sink. (See next blog post for details.)
The Hoover was easy to put together, easy to use, and worked great. Now my kids have a blank canvas again to work their magic.
- Make sure the "recovery tank" is sealed properly. I didn't have it sealed all the way once, and the Hoover wouldn't suck any solution from the carpet.
- Pretreat spots properly beforehand. I didn't read the instructions on the bottle, so it took a little extra work (but not that much!) to get a few spots out.
