The BISSELL 30K4E Little Green Carpet Cleaner is very easy to use and is quick and effective at cleaning up accidents and spills.

This carpet cleaner sprays cleaning fluid while simultaneously vacuuming it up, helping to remove most of the moisture so your carpet will dry out quickly. This means your carpet won’t be sopping wet after using it. The sucking action will also help prevent stains and debris from getting stuck in the carpet, so they’re easier to remove.

The BISSELL 30K4E Little Green is easier to clean than many other carpet cleaners that start to smell of stagnant water after a while because they can’t be cleaned very easily.

This machine is quite loud—at least as loud as the average vacuum cleaner. This is one of the downsides to using this machine, though hopefully you won’t need to use it for more than a few minutes at a time.

This carpet cleaner can’t deal with all stains, and is better for quickly cleaning up accidents rather than dealing with old, set-in stains.


Do pet hairs clog the machine?

As long as you clean and rinse out the suction head regularly, cat and dog hairs shouldn’t clog up this machine.

Can this machine be used to clean the stairs?

Yes, the BISSELL 30K4E Little Green Carpet Cleaner works well for cleaning the stairs.

What cleaning solution does it take?

This carpet cleaner can take any carpet shampoo. BISSELL Spot and Stain 2x Concentrate Carpet Shampoo would be a good choice.

Are BISSELL a reputable brand?

BISSELL are one of the leading brands of carpet cleaning machines. They have been making cleaning tools since 1876 and have a good reputation.


The BISSELL 30K4E Little Green Carpet Cleaner is a great tool to have for cleaning up occasional spills and accidents. It offers good value for money as it’s so quick and easy to use.

This product works better as a spot cleaner than as a carpet cleaner, so you might find it a bit slow if you want to clean a whole carpet.


A popular alternative to the BISSELL 30K4E Little Green is the Rug Doctor Portable Spot Cleaner, which uses a handheld motorised brush to dislodge dirt from the carpet.

A good alternative for cleaning whole carpets rather than just spots and stains could be the Vax V124A Dual V Upright Carpet and Upholstery Washer. It’s more expensive than the BISSELL 30K4E Little Green, but is bigger, more powerful and has larger water tanks. If you’re looking to clean a large carpet, it will be much quicker than the BISSELL 30K4E Little Green.
