Does BISSELL Big Green clean pet urine and vomit stains?
Yes, BISSELL Big Green carpet cleaner does clean pet urine, waste, and vomit stains. The best way to clean up these pet messes is to first remove any solids from the carpet by using two paper plates to scoop up the solid mess and dispose. Then blot excess liquid with paper towel. We recommend pre-treating urine, waste, and vomit stains with Pet Urine Stain & Odor spray. Spray the stain and the surrounding area because stains grow wider when they seep into carpet backing. Let Pet Urine Stain & Odor spray sit on the stain for five to ten minutes and then clean the carpet with BISSELL Big Green cleaning machine. If the stain has dried, scoop up the solids and spray with Pet Urine Stain & Odor spray. Then cover with a damp color-safe towel for 24 hours. This allows the enzymes to break down the organic material. Then use BISSELL Big Green carpet cleaner to deep clean the stains out of the carpet.
Will BISSELL Big Green carpet cleaning machine work on all types of carpet?
We recommend checking manufacturer’s cleaning instructions for your carpet before using BISSELL Big Green carpet cleaning machine on any type of carpeted surface. Extra caution should be taken when using this machine on frieze carpet.
How much water will BISSELL Big Green carpet cleaner leave behind?
The amount of water left behind when using BISSELL Big Green carpet cleaner will depend on how much water is sprayed during the carpet cleaning process as well as how many dry suction passes are completed. We recommend two dry suction passes after two wet spraying passes to decrease dry time. BISSELL Big Green carpet cleaning machine puts down less water than many competitive machines.
