How does It Compare to Other Carpet Cleaners?
The Hoover SteamVac with Clean Surge, F5914900 is one of the main competitors for Bissell DeepClean Essential. The two fall within the same appliance range and here’s how they compare to each other.
The price difference between the two machines is negligible but the Hoover SteamVac is somewhat smaller – the machine measures 19.5 by 29.5 by 14.25 inches. Its weight is 20 pounds.
Hoover SteamVac has a tank capacity of one gallon and the machine is equipped with a 20-foot power cord. Bissel DeepClean Essential has the same tank capacity, but you can use it further from the power socket, which is handy when you clean a big house.
When it comes to the cleaning process itself, Hoover SteamVac has one innovative and unique feature – the Clean Surge functionality. It enables you to spray extra cleaning solution for spot treatment of dirty carpet areas. The machine also comes with patented spinscrub brushes on all sides and two brush speed control settings.
