Review of Bissell SpotClean ProHeat Portable Spot Cleaner, 5207F

The Bissell SpotClean ProHeat Portable Spot Cleaner 5207F is popular small, lightweight at 10 pounds, and an affordable spot carpet cleaner. It is conveniently carried around to clean everyday spills and stains, including pet stains.

The Bissell SpotClean permanently removes spots and stains from carpets, rugs and upholstery using water, Bissell formula, hand cleaning tools and its powerful suction. Its water tanks are removable for convenient filling and emptying while its compact size makes it easy to carry around to clean nooks and corners.


The Bissell SpotClean 5207F weighs only 9.2 pounds when empty and only about 11 pounds with a full clean water tank.

Heatwave technology

The heatwave technology here does not mean the carpet cleaner heats water, but that it can sustain hot water filled in it’s water tank. It keeps the water hot throughout the cleaning process to ensure a complete and thorough cleaning.

Non-motorized brush heads

The Bissell SpotClean 5207F has a stationery brush head which do not rotate as they are not motorized like some other carpet cleaners. It works if and when manually used for scrubbing off stains and spots on carpet fibers. While you may buy a motorized brush head, it’s not that important or necessary for a thorough cleaning.

Wide stain and deep clean tools 

This carpet cleaner comes with accessories like the 3” wide cleaning path tough stain tool which is perfect for removing everyday stains including pet stains from carpets, upholstery and auto interiors. The Deep Reach tool has an extra-long rubber nozzle which effectively removes deeply embedded, older stains.

Two tanks

The Bissell SpotClean 5207F carpet cleaner comes with two tanks of 37oz. capacity; one for clean water and another for collecting dirty water. While both tanks can be easily removed and replaced, they are small and perfect for cleaning small areas. It has to be frequently refilled and emptied while cleaning large carpets. The clean water tank also has water and formula fill lines to use for cleaning large stains.

Motor and power cord

The carpet cleaner comes with a quick-release, 15ft power cord which is sufficient for the thorough cleaning of an average household. Its 3 amp motor operates from a 120V power source, which is pretty strong for a small carpet cleaner.
