Bissell 2458 SpotClean Pet Pro Features and Specifications

Bissell 2458 SpotClean Pet Pro is compact unit featuring physical dimensions of (L x W x H) 10 x 14 x 14 inches (~25 x 35.6 x 35.6 cm) and it weighs 13.2 pounds (~6.0 kg).

Bissell 2458 SpotClean Pet Pro features two tanks, one for clean water/cleaning solution and another for dirty liquids. Dirty liquids tank features a capacity of 3/4 gallons, allowing the user to remove rather large amounts of dirty liquids from the cleaned area.

Although Bissell 2458 is a corded unit, it doesn't feature a water heater. But, the use of warm water (up to 140°F, 60°C) mixed with some of the Bissell's cleaning formulas for cleaning is recommended for more thorough cleaning - if the cleaned surfaces are not too sensitive.


Bissell 2458 SpotClean Pet Pro comes with 22 feet (~6.7 m) long power cord which is manually wrapped by the user.

Cleaning hose is 5 feet (~1.5 m) long and in combination with a pair of cleaning tools, the unit is able to thoroughly clean carpets and area rugs, carpeted stairs, pet beds, car interiors, upholstered surfaces, etc.

Power cord and cleaning hose provide a rather long cleaning reach, allowing the user to easily reach surfaces that have to be cleaned. The use of an additional extension power cord is not recommended, but note that Bissell 2458 is rated at 5.7 Amps.

Note: Bissell 2458 SpotClean Pet Pro is a rather simple spot cleaner, with both use and maintenance tasks being easy and straightforward. However, when the unit arrives, read the manual thoroughly in order to get accustomed to your new cleaner.

Bissell 2458 comes with two cleaning tools: 3-inch Tough Stain Tool and Stain Trapper Tool.

3 inch tough stain tool

3-inch Tough Stain Tool allows deep cleaning of carpeted and upholstered surfaces.

The actual cleaning is very simple - just spray some cleaning solution over the dirty area by pressing the solution trigger, rub it with the brush on the tool itself and let the suction remove the dirty liquids.

After the cleaning, the cleaned area is left moist, requiring some time to dry out - drying time depends on the amount of applied cleaning solution, temperature, presence of draft, and similar.

Stain Trapper Tool features a small tank for dirty liquids, simplifying the maintenance tasks - no need to clean the dirty water tank.

Note: there is always a slight possibility that some dirty liquids will end up in the cleaning hose and the dirty water tank.

Cleaning with the Stain Trapper Tool is very similar to the cleaning with a 3-inch Tough Stain Tool - apply the cleaning solution, rub it in the clean area and let the unit's suction remove the dirty liquids.

Bissell Cleaning Formulas

pet pro oxyBissell 2458 SpotClean Pet Pro comes with two trial size PET PRO OXY Urine Eliminator formulas, but it can also be ordered right away with other cleaning formulas like the full-size PET PRO OXY Urine Eliminator formula, PET PRO OXY Urine Eliminator formula combined with Bissell 16131 Pet Boost Oxy Formula for Cleaning Carpets, Bissell 78H63 Deep Clean Pro 4X Deep Cleaning Concentrated Carpet Shampoo, etc.

Note: Cleaning formulas are safe for pets and kids when used as recommended - so be sure to read the instructions thoroughly.

Also, when used as instructed, cleaning formulas don't leave the surfaces sticky and there is no need to rinse the surfaces with the plain water.

However, some users add only half of the recommended amount of cleaning formula, while some users just pretreat the cleaned area with cleaning solution and add only plain, clean water into the unit.

Personally, use Bissell 2458 SpotClean Pet Pro as recommended by the manufacturer. That also means that sensitive surfaces should be tested first - better safe than sorry.

Bissell 2458 SpotClean Pet Pro comes with a two-year limited warranty.

Long Story Short: Bissell 2458 SpotClean Pet Pro is a simple and affordable solution for fast and thorough cleaning of pets and kids' messes and stains.

It is one of the most popular units in its class, well-liked by its users that tested it successfully in many real-life situations.
