  • you should just take that $170 and buy a Bissel Pro Heat Carpet Cleaner and do it yourself every month or so

  • i have a 2yr old and a hubby so my carpets are a disaster zone i just borrow a friends steam cleaner once a week and clean my carpets its cheaper then getting someone to do it for me and it only takes me 2.5-3hrs to get the downstairs and stairway done.

  • If you can get the Bissel Pro heat- pay one time and then can use it as often as you like.

  • Oh god yes! We have a light blue carpet (was there when we moved in) and we have a 2 and 1 yr old....so our carpet constantly looks as though someone took a paintblaster and just randomly shot at the floor...juice, chocolate, coffee, pop...you name it, the stain is on our carpet. Even after steam cleaning it barely passes as respectable..LOL...
