How to Install the Bare Floor Attachment

Using a Bissell attachment is very simple by design. Power down and unplug your Pro Heat Cleaner to attach the hard floor cleaning tool. Then, you should lay down the machine so that the underside is exposed. Position the bare floor attachment that came with the cleaner at the bottom of the appliance. Ensure the bristles and squeegee are facing down and away from the bottom of the cleaner so that they will make contact with the floor while in use.

Locate the tabs on the attachment and line them up with the nozzle on the machine's underside. Push the bare floor attachment into the nozzle and toward the appliance from the back and it should click into place. Stand the machine upright and plug it into an outlet. Now, you're ready to power it on and test it before you start cleaning.

How to Use the Carpet Cleaner Hard Floor Attachment

First and foremost, make sure that the cleaning fluid you use is appropriate for your type of floor, especially if you have hardwood. Some substances can leave streaks or even harm natural materials. Fill the tank with your solution according to the manufacturer's instructions. If your floors are filthy, you might want to vacuum or sweep them first to remove any loose debris.

Turn the control panel dial to "floor cleaning." Push the trigger on the cleaner's handle, which sprays the liquid cleaning solution onto the floor in front of you. Firmly move the cleaner back and forth over the floor, allowing the combination of heat, friction and the cleaning solution to loosen and eliminate dirt, hair and more.

Go back over the floors a second time to allow the squeegee to pick up any dirty water. Do not pull the trigger to release more cleaning liquid. For safety, let the floors dry completely before walking on them.

Caring for Your Bissell Pro Heat Cleaner 9500

Your Bissell is a versatile appliance, so you want to keep it in the best shape possible. That requires proper care in all aspects of the machine's life, like storage and proper maintenance. First, store your cleaner somewhere safe where it won't get knocked over or bumped too much. Keep it indoors when not in use, such as in a closet or an insulated basement. Keep the power cord wrapped around the hooks and make sure it's in a place where pets can't chew the cord.

Always empty and clean the tank after use as well. Make sure that you do not let water stand in the machine or the water could encourage the growth of mold and mildew and ruin the cleaner. Remove residual solution by flushing the machine when you're finished using it. Pull loose debris and hair from the bristles and squeegee. Refer to the user's manual for deep cleaning instructions.
