TurboClean PowerBrush Pet

 

2X Revolution Pet Pro

 

Little Green

 

HOOVER PowerDash vs BISSELL TurboClean PowerBrush vs Proheat 2X vs Little Green: Main Differences, & Which To Get?

Firstly, you should know that the PowerDash, TurboClean PowerBrush, and ProHeat 2X Revolution are all upright carpet cleaners.

The Little Green is different – it’s a spot cleaner and small/portable carpet cleaner. 

So, if you want an upright cleaner or a spot cleaner specifically, that will impact your decision.

 

In terms of what model to get:

– The Little Green obviously stands alone from the other models being a spot cleaner. However, it’s probably one of the best spot carpet cleaner models on the market

– The TurboClean PowerBrush and PowerDash are both lightweight upright carpet cleaners with more basic and less features compared to the ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet Pro. If you just want a basic light clean – they are a good option

The ProHeat 2X Revolution Pet Pro is one of the best upright carpet cleaners on the market in our opinion, along with the HOOVER SmartWash. It comes with a range of features, can clean at floor level as well as above floor level with a hose and cleaning tools, and has a longer limited warranty than most upright carpet cleaners

BISSELL SpinWave vs Shark vs Karcher vs Swiffer vs HOOVER FloorMate vs Gladwell: Comparison

If you prefer, you can go straight to viewing these cleaner machines here:

 

SpinWave

 

Shark

 

HOOVER

 

Karcher

Karcher offers different types of cleaners – hard floor cleaners, wet dry vacs, a steam cleaner and a stick vacuum:

 

Swiffer

 

Gladwell

 

BISSELL SpinWave vs Shark vs Karcher vs Swiffer vs HOOVER FloorMate vs Gladwell: Summary, & Which To Get

A summary of what each range of machine is, and why you’d consider getting them is:

 

Overall

The SpinWave models are a sealed hard surfaces powered mop cleaners.

The Shark models are steam mop cleaners for hard surfaces.

The Swiffer WetJet offers a simple and affordable spray mop that functions with disposable small batteries.

Karcher has several types of cleaners available, with their steam cleaner and wet dry vac being worth a look.

The HOOVER FloorMate is a hard surfaces scrubber/cleaner, that sucks up the dirty leftover water. It might be better checking out the BISSELL CrossWave (a wet dry vac) over the FloorMate first.

The Gladwell is a cleaner designed to mop, clean and scrub with rotating scrubber brushes. We think there are better powered mop type cleaners to look at first than the Gladwell.

 

SpinWave

The SpinWave machines are powered mop cleaners.

They are designed for sealed hard surfaces.

The cordless model offers cordless cleaning.

You’d get the Spinwave Plus over the base model Spinwave if you want the extras that come with it. These extras include an extra set of mop pads, cleaning formula, and scrubby pads for tough and sticky messes.

We’ve rated the SpinWave amongst some of the best powered mop cleaners on the market right now.

 

Shark

The Shark Steam mops are good value, and all offer something different.

The Lift Off and Genius are the more advanced models.

You’d get them if you want more features, and specific features like no touch pad changing, the steam blaster, and more.

The Steam Pocket is the next step down from these two. It has swivel steering, and 2 sided cleaning pad cleaning.

The S1000 is the most affordable and most basic model. It lacks any standout features other than it is affordable, lightweight and compact. It’s just a ‘no frills’ steam mop cleaner.

The Shark Steam Mops are amongst some of the best steam mops on the market right now for pets.

 

Swiffer

The swiffer is a spray mop – you spray onto a hard sealed surface, and clean with the mop pad.

It’s a good affordable and simple option compared to the corded and rechargeable battery cleaner mops on the market.

It works with disposable AA batteries.

 

Karcher

Karcher has several cleaning machines available.

For vacuums and hard surface cleaners, we think it’s worth looking at other brands first (see the guides listed at the bottom of this guide).

The Karcher wet dry vac is worth a look for people who want a multi surface cleaner, with a 1800W motor, and large tank size.

It has adaptability and uses outside of regular inside the house floor surface cleaning.

The Karcher steam cleaner is also worth consideration – it can be used for both floor level and above floor level steam cleaning.

 

HOOVER FloorMate (Hard Floor Cleaner)

A hard floor cleaner – it scrubs and cleans hard sealed surfaces with scrubber brushes, and then sucks up the dirty water

In our opinion, the BISSELL CrossWave which is also a wet dry vac, is a better option to look at.

Check it out here – BISSELL Crosswave vs Crosswave Pet Pro vs Crosswave Cordless Max – Comparison Guide.

 

Gladwell

A cleaner designed to mop, clean and scrub with rotating scrubber brushes.

In our opinion, rather than looking at the Gladwell electric mop, you’re better off starting by looking at some of the top rated cleaner mops on the market here – Best Steam Mops & Cleaner Mops For Pets.

BISSELL and Shark have some good options available.

HOOVER

 

BISSELL Symphony vs HOOVER FloorMate vs Shark vs Dyson: Summary, & Which TO Get

A summary of what brand and models is, what they offer, and what to get:

 

Overall

The Symphony is a vac and steam mop – so, if steaming hard floors, and vacuuming debris is what you want to do, you may start by looking at it.

The Dyson V Series cordless stick vacuums are vacuums only.

The HOOVER FloorMate is a hard surfaces scrubber/cleaner, that sucks up the dirty leftover water. It might be better checking out the BISSELL CrossWave (a wet dry vac) over the FloorMate first.

The Shark Steam Mops are for steaming hard surfaces, and the Lift Off allows above floor steaming too. They have mop pads which allow cleaning of hard surfaces with water/steam.

 

Symphony (Vac & Steam Mop 2 in 1)

The Symphony machines are 2 in 1 steam mops, and vacuum cleaners.

They are designed for sealed hard surfaces.

The Symphony Pet model offers features specific to pet owners.

 

Dyson (Cordless Stick Vacuums)

The main difference between the Dyson cordless vac models is that the suction power increases from the V6 up to the V11, with the V11 being the most powerful of them all.

The battery life also generally increases too.

We believe the V8 series offers the best value for money overall in terms of performance, battery life and reliability/durability, followed closely by the V7 series.

The V10 is powerful, but the battery life can in terms of how quickly it can drain can be an issue for some.

The V11 is estimated to be about 40% more powerful than the V8 range, and 20% more powerful than the V10 range.

If cost isn’t an issue, the V11 models are a good option if you want that extra power – the Torque Drive Model also has a real time LCD display for the vacuum.

The V11 models have max 60 minutes of run time on their batteries.

 

HOOVER FloorMate (Hard Floor Cleaner)

A hard floor cleaner – it scrubs and cleans hard sealed surfaces with scrubber brushes, and then sucks up the dirty water

In our opinion, the BISSELL CrossWave which is also a wet dry vac, is a better option to look at.

Check it out here – BISSELL Crosswave vs Crosswave Pet Pro vs Crosswave Cordless Max – Comparison Guide.

 

Shark Steam Mops

The Lift Off and Genius are the more advanced models.

You’d get them if you want more features, and specific features like no touch pad changing, the steam blaster, and more.

The Steam Pocket is the next step down from these two. It has swivel steering, and 2 sided cleaning pad cleaning.

The S1000 is the most affordable and most basic model. It lacks any standout features other than it is affordable, lightweight and compact. It’s just a ‘no frills’ steam mop cleaner.

In addition to the above steam mops, it’s worth noting Shark also has the Shark VacMop Pro – which is a steam mop and vac 2 in 1.

Karcher

Karcher offers different types of cleaners – hard floor cleaners, wet dry vacs, a steam cleaner and a stick vacuum:

 

BISSELL CrossWave vs Dyson vs Karcher: Summary, & Which To Get

A summary of what each range of machine is, and why you’d consider getting them is:

 

Overall

The CrossWave machines are wet dry vacs that have the ability to wet mop hard surfaces, and vacuum as well. They are specifically designed for cleaning inside the house.

The CrossWaves are rated amongst the best models of wet dry vacs for pets on the market.

The Dyson V Series vacuums are cordless stick type vacuums only.

Karcher offers hard floor cleaners, a wet dry vacuum, a steam cleaner, and a cordless vacuum. Karcher’s cleaners are more multi purpose cleaners than the regular ‘inside the home’ cleaner.

In our opinion, the Dyson V Series cordless vacuums are a better option overall than the Karcher cordless vac. So, you may want to start by looking at them for a vacuum only cleaning machine.

In terms of wet dry vacs, we would start by looking at the CrossWave for most regular home and pet owners. It’s made specifically for sealed hard floors, and area rugs. If you want more of a multi purpose wet dry vac, you might look at the Karcher WD4 or WD5. 

 

CrossWave

The CrossWave machines are wet dry vacs.

They have the ability to both wet clean, and dry vacuum different surfaces.

The Cordless Max model offers cordless cleaning.

The Pet model offers features specific to pet owners.

The base model might be for non pet owners, and those who prefer corded cleaning.

 

Dyson

The main difference between the Dyson cordless vac models is that the suction power increases from the V6 up to the V11, with the V11 being the most powerful of them all.

The battery life also generally increases too.

We believe the V8 series offers the best value for money overall in terms of performance, battery life and reliability/durability, followed closely by the V7 series.

The V10 is powerful, but the battery life can in terms of how quickly it can drain can be an issue for some.

The V11 models have max 60 minutes of run time on their batteries.

The Karcher wet dry vac is worth a look for people who want a multi surface cleaner, with a 1800W motor, and large tank size.

It has adaptability and uses outside of regular inside the house floor surface cleaning.

BISSELL Big Green vs Rug Doctor vs HOOVER vs ProHeat Revolution 2x: Which To Get?

The similarity between all these cleaning machines is that they are all carpet cleaners.

So, if you want a carpet cleaner, you’d consider one of these machines.

 

However, the BISSELL Big Green and Rug Doctor machines are deep or heavy carpet cleaners.

They are designed for maximum cleaning power and suction, and for professional style cleaning results.

They tend to be slightly bigger and heavier machines.

The HOOVER and BISSELL Revolution 2X models on the other hand are regular upright carpet cleaners – so, they are a different level of carpet cleaner.

They are popular for regular home owners and everyday type use.

They are bigger than the small and lightweight spot cleaners and portable cleaners.

 

Big Green vs Rug Doctor

In our opinion, the Big Green machines and Rug Doctor Mighty Pro X3 model are both well worth looking at if you want a heavy/deep carpet cleaner for the house – particularly carpet and rug surfaces.

Both are reasonably popular and highly rated compared to some other deep cleaners on the market.

 

BISSELL Revolution 2X vs HOOVER Upright Carpet Cleaners

We list the PowerScrub, SmartWash and Revolution 2X in our Best Spot Cleaners and Carpet Cleaners For Pets guide.

All three are are some of the top rated regular upright carpet cleaners on the market.

Rug Doctor FlexClean vs Bissell CrossWave: Which To Get?

These are two different cleaning machines – you’ll want to consider the type of machines they both are before you look into them further.

 

Rug Doctor

The Rug Doctor is more of an all in one cleaner for soft and hard floors. It’s designed to replace mops, hard floor cleaners, and steamers to deliver an efficient, effective clean.

You can see a Rug Doctor review at the bottom of this guide (we list the features, and who it might and might not be for).

 

CrossWave

The BISSELL CrossWave on the other hand is a wet dry vac machine.

The different CrossWave models can wet mop and dry suction mess, and also pick up other mess and dirt with vacuum suction. They are for hard sealed floors, and area rugs.

Overall

Overall, it’s worth checking out some of the other ‘best rated’ cleaning machines on the market first, especially over the Rug Doctor FlexClean.

Some people experience that the cleaner is more of a spot cleaner than a heavier cleaner

 

Overall

This cleaner has some great features like the overall design, the tanks, and the number of modes.

However, the performance can be unreliable in terms of the ability to clean bigger or deeper marks and stains, and the ability to suction water back up.

It’s worth reading the return policy and warranty conditions prior to buying in case you have any issues.

For lightweight cleaners for carpet, the HOOVER Powerscrub Elite or HOOVER Powerdash may be better options. A steam mop may be better on hardwood.
