I am a little maniacal about things smelling like dog. One of my greatest fears is someone will walk into the house and sniff, sniff… ew, does that smell like dog? I would die.
That being said, I’m convinced I can smell dog most of the time. Aaron says I’m crazy, but I swear it’s there. I don’t know if it’s the type of fabric our sofa is, if it’s because the rug is cheap, if it’s because things are just more wet all the time (thanks drool, milk and spills), but I swear it’s there! We did not have this problem in our last house. It just drives me batty. I even went and bought a dehumidifier for the basement to help with it, thinking that the high humidity was amplifying the odor. And of course lots of vacuuming, which usually happens between the hours of 12 am and 1 am because.. well I’m crazy.
You know who is sponsoring this post. You can see where this is going. When my sponsorship partner contacted me about doing a post for BISSELL, I was like OMG YES PLEASE WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO! I WILL PAY THEM FOR ALL I CARE. As you can see, I was excited. A few days later, the BISSELL ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet 1548 (to be specific) showed up on my doorstep.Â
You guys. Yes, yes, yes. Suge’s like, “Noooo! Not my dander!” This thing is fierce. It’s better than Rug Doctor, and that’s saying something. It’s super light (I can have a baby on my hip while I whip this thing around the house) and even better, it has multiple cleaning modes. One of my biggest gripes about cleaning carpets and upholstery is that I don’t necessarily have the time to do a deep, wet clean and then wait for things to dry in 24 hours. With the Express Clean mode I only have to wait an hour. I can do that! That’s a walk with the babies while everything dries.
The suction is insanely powerful. So powerful I would be careful with high-pile carpets and rugs, just like how you would treat a Dyson. Everything is heated too, so the water stays nice and hot throughout the entire job. This picture is gross, but look how much gunk it got out of my entryway rug, even after I had vacuumed. The water was black. EW. (Also, please tell me I’m not the only one who gets a sick pleasure at looking at how dirty the water gets afterwards.) My babies are at that age where we are playing on the floor nearly all of the time. I love knowing that everything is nice and clean and nothing yucky can get in their mouths. As much as we try to take of our shoes at the front door, we aren’t always successful, so regular carpet cleaning is a must. One of my main requirements for any carpet cleaner is that it has to have an upholstery tool. We are HARD on our upholstered furniture. We spill, the babies drool and the dogs have full reign of the furniture. I love the suction and ease of use with this wand.
With the holidays coming up, I love knowing that I have this tool in my arsenal against dog smell and just plain dirtiness. And I’m looking forward to reducing my level of crazy just a bit. 😉
When you come over, I’ll probably ask you if you can smell anything. Lol. Now excuse me while I go clean my rugs again.
