BISSELL JetScrub Pet vs CrossWave: Main Differences, & Which To Get?

Firstly, these two cleaners are two different types of machines.

The BISSELL JetScrub is an upright electric carpet cleaner, whilst the BISSELL CrossWave models come as both corded, and also cordless wet dry vacs.

Each of these machines functions and cleans in a slightly different way.

So, decide which of these types of cleaning machines you want first.


Secondly, and beyond that major difference, a more detailed summary of what each model is, and a few differences are:


JetScrub Pet

The JetScrub Pet is mainly designed for cleaning mainly carpets and rugs.

It has an XL Dirt Lifter Power Brush that includes 10 rows of bristles.

It is lighter weight than the 2X Revolution Pet Pro Carpet Cleaner (13.7lbs compared to 18lbs), has a smaller water tank capacity (half a gallon, compared to a full gallon), and can’t be used for above floor cleaning.

Having said that, it has a collapsible handle, electronic fingertip controls, and LED lights – none of which the other BISSELL upright carpet cleaners have (the TurboClean does have a collapsible handle though).

Similar to the 2X Revolution Pet Pro, the JetScrub does have an express cleaning mode for cleaning in 30 minutes.



The CrossWave has the CrossWave, CrossWave Pet, & CrossWave Cordless Max models available.

The CrossWave machines are designed as 2 in 1 wet dry vac machines i.e. they can wet mop dry mess, and also pick up other mess with vacuum suction.

They are for hard sealed floors, and area rugs.

The CrossWaves can’t be used for above floor level cleaning with a hose and cleaning tools.

The CrossWave does have a cordless model available, which the JetScrub doesn’t. 

The CrossWave Pet in particular comes with a brush designed to deal with pet hair, a pet hair strainer

The CrossWave overall is perhaps one of the best wet dry vacs on the market for pets



In terms of Wet Dry Vacs for hard sealed floors and area rugs, the CrossWave is a good model to look at.

For upright carpet cleaners, you may want to look at other models like the BISSELL 2X Revolution Pet Pro or the HOOVER SmartWash first.
