Automated spot cleaning
The Bissell Spotbot Pet Deep Cleaner 33N8A has various automatic cleaning cycles. You just have to place the carpet cleaner on the stain, choose the right cleaning cycle and the machine sprays and brushes to remove the stain. Unlike robotic vacuum cleaners, there is no need of programming anything as the Spotbot is preprogrammed and already knows what it has to do, and does it well.
Pre-programmed wash cycles
The machine has 5 buttons- pause/resume, stop, surface stain for simple stains, set-in stain for tough stains and hose buttons to choose from. The machine needs only a 3-minute cycle to remove new stains and double the time for old spots.
At times, repeated cleanings may be required to get optimal results. It’s because it so effectively removes spots that the Spotbot is popular with families with pets and small kids at home.
Deep Reach Technology thoroughly removes deep stains
This Spotbot uses Deep Reach Technology with 2 counter-rotating brushing systems rotating at 4,000 rpm and a 3amp. motor to extract old and tough stains in the carpet. The two counter-rotating brushes create a big cleaning zone spanning 7 inches in diameter for the faster treatment of bigger stains.
Lightweight and easy to use
The machine can be conveniently carried around especially by women as it has a handle on its top and it weighs only 14 pounds. Moreover as it’s fully assembled, it can be used right away, without reading any instructions or assembling. Maintenance is also easy as you just have to give the brush and tanks a thorough rinsing after every use.
Two water tanks
The Bissell Spotbot 33N8A has two separate tanks for dirty and clean water. Its however has a capacity of only 32 ounce which is quite small when compared with other portable carpet cleaners.
The tanks however are also not easily accessed as each tank has an opening that is only 2 small fingers wide for filling and emptying liquids. This is why the filling and empting chore may get messy at times. The best options for keeping the dirt tank relatively clean is to use denture tablets, rinse the carpet many times with hot water after cleaning it and wait for the tank to dry.
Accessories which provide versatility
The Bissell Spotbot offers so much versatility with its cleaning through it’s 5 ft. retractable hose which can be used to clean stairs, vehicle interiors and upholstery to make cleaning your home a fun job. Combined with an included 3-inch hand tool, the Spotbot can remove stains much more effectively. Moreover, its 16 ft. Cord lets you carry the machine across a moderate cleaning space.
Microban Antimicrobial Protection
The machine’s Microban Antimicrobial Protection protects against the growth and spread of odor-associated bacteria, molds and mildew. It is also one of the requirements to be met for the machine to get fully certified.
Automatic smart system
The Bissell Spotbot Handsfree spot and stain cleaner has an inbuilt automatic smart system which determines the amount of solution to use for removing particular stains. Once the required solution amount is calculated, all hard stains are cleared as quickly as the end of the spiral brushes’ first 400 revolutions.
No water heater
This handsfree spot and stain cleaner does not have a heater. This means you will have to heat some water if you need warm water for cleaning a stain.
You are not limited to using only the machine’s handsfree set-up. If you want to pay some personal attention to a spot or stain, there is another button which activates the hose/hand tool so that the Spotbot can be used manually like any other portable carpet cleaner.
