Bissell DeepClean Deluxe Pet Full Sized Carpet Cleaner 36Z9 Review

Suited Surface Types  

You can use your Bissell DeepClean Deluxe Pet Deep Cleaner 36Z9 to effectively clean carpets, upholstery, stairs and low pile carpet.

Dirtlifter PowerBrushes

DirstLifter PowerBrushes are 12 rows of brushes integrated into the brush head. This pet carpet shampooer has been designed to combat the toughest of stains providing a deep cleaning experience. 12 rows of brushes included in this model are almost twice the number compared to other models which come with 6 rows.

More brushes scrubbing the carpet ensure that no fiber is left unturned and no dust & debris particle is left behind. This deep cleaning effectively removes even old pet odor and stains from your carpets.

HeatWave Technology

Warm water increases the effectiveness of cleaning multi-fold. Bissel DeepClean Deluxe Pet Pro directs the heat from its powerful motor around the water tank, thus it keeps the water at a constant warm temperature. Once you have added warm water to the clean water bladder, Bissell DeepClean Deluxe will ensure that a constant temperature is maintained and you don’t have to refill warm temperature over and over again.

CleanShot Power

Sometimes, during cleaning there are very tough and stubborn stains that do not come out no matter what. In order to get rid of such stains, Bissell has come up with CleanShot technology. Just with the trigger of a button, your Bissell Deep Clean Pet Pro 36Z9 will spray concentrated cleaning solution directly over the tough stain.

So no more manual cleaning of the tough stains anymore. Just pull the trigger and Bissell will ensure that no stain is left behind after cleaning.

EdgeSweep Cleaning

After completing a cleaning cycle, it’s always tiring to know that you have to clean the edges of baseboard manually with hands. People at Bissell know this very well and they have come up with a patented EdgeSweep technology just to handle this problem.

With EdgeSweep cleaning, there is no more manual cleaning of edges of carpet. The EdgeSweep brushes will ensure that no dust and debris is left unattended.

Surround Suction

Surround suction feature enables the 36Z9 carpet shampooer to extract more dirty water from the carpet. As more water is pulled out of the carpet, the time required for the carpet to dry is reduced multi-folds.

It should be your priority to dry the carpet as soon as possible. If the carpet is left wet then there are chances of more dust and debris getting entangled into it.

Cleaning Path Width

Bissell DeepClean Pet Pro 36Z9 has 12” cleaning path width. Which means you can cover 12” area in a single pass while using the floor cleaning nozzle. Larger the cleaning path width, more area can be covered so it is always preferable to select a carpet cleaner with wider cleaning path.

Large Water Tank

Bissell DeepClean Deluxe Pet Pro comes with a large 1.25-gallon water tank. 1.25 gallons is a 25% increase in tank size compared to other competing upright carpet cleaner models. Bissell uses bladder technology which means that there is a single large water tank with a strong bladder inside it. Extracted water is collected within the main tank whereas the clean water is safely stored inside the bladder within the main tank.

Large water tank allows you to cover more cleaning area without the need to empty and refill the tanks. Although Bissell Pet Pro 36Z9 has 25% larger water tank, it does not affect the maneuverability as such.

Pet Hair Collector

Pet hair can get clogged into the host and other parts of the carpet cleaner machine causing odor. Pet hair collection basket is a filter that is located right before the water tank. This filter ensures that all the fur and pet hair get trapped in the filter and cannot get into the water tank, contaminating the water and causing odor.  It can be easily removed, cleaned and re-attached back into its place.

Stain Trapper

Stain Trapper is a special attachment with Pet Pro 36Z9 Carpet Shampooer. Pet incidents are very common, and for those small stains caused by pet urine, pet feces, and pet vomit, stain trapper is the right solution. This small attachment has its own small container where dirty water is collected. With this attachment, the large water tank does not get contaminated. It is also very easy to detach, clean and re-attach the stain trapper tool.

Power Cord Length

It comes with a built-in power cord which is 22′ long. Longer power cord gives you the flexibility to cover large cleaning areas in a single pass.

Weight & Dimensions

Bissell DeepClean Deluxe Carpet Shampooer weighs around 24.8 lbs. This is not one of the slimmest carpet cleaners around. It stands at 23.5 x 14 x 25 inches fully assembled.


Bissell DeepClean Deluxe Pet Pro comes with 3 years limited warranty. 3 years is a very relaxed warranty period compared to more upright cleaners in this category and price range. Usually, it’s around 1-2 years limited warranty.
