If you are here, you probably own a pet. We love our pets. They are a part of our family. And like many members of the family, they can be very messy. Actually, they are definitely messier. If you own a furry fluffball friend you know to expect one issue.
Pet hair. It gets everywhere! Pet hair gets on your clothes. Pet hair gets on your furniture. We are surrounded by constant pet hair. If you have carpets, you'll find pet hairs stuck so deeply there doesn't seem to be a way to get them out.
We can't blame one single pet, no it's both dog hair, cat hair, any kind of furry animal gets hair everywhere. Unfortunately, as pet owners, we will be removing pet hair for our whole lives.
It is not just the pet hairs. We hate to say it because we love our pets so much, but pet odors linger. You'll find that no matter how much you deep clean your area rug, the hardwood floors, or tile floors after a few days the pet odors return.

Now that you know what the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro is, let's look at what it comes with.
What Does The Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro Come With?
Multi-Surface Pet Formula with Febreze
When you unpack the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro, you'll notice you don't only get the cleaning machine. The first thing you'll notice is that the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro comes with its very own cleaning solution.
This cleaning solution, which is called Multi-Surface Pet Formula, has been developed by Bissell and is their very own special cleaning formula.
As it states in the name, this isn't just a cleaning solution that focuses on one surface it is a multi-surface cleaner. It is a carpet cleaner and a wood floor cleaner.
So what do we think about this multi-surface cleaner? When testing out this product we thought it did a wonderful cleaning job. The cleaning formula includes having that Febreeze freshness. This did an absolutely wonderful job of being able to remove pet odors.
No matter how stubborn they may have been in the past. Honestly, the multi-surface cleaner was way more than just a carpet cleaner, it is a lifesaver. We are big fans of the fact that this multi-surface cleaner is pet safe. The cleaning formula has biodegradable detergents that are not harmful to pets.
Two Dual Action Multi-Surface Brush Roll
What we love about the multi-surface brush roll is that it is a tangle-free brush roll! Gone are the days of having to untangle pet hair from the vacuum head. The multi-surface tangle-free brush roll removes the need to ever worry about tangled pet hair.
The tangle-free brush roll is said to be able to withstand tangling pet hair that is up to eight inches long.
How Does The Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro Work?
Now that you know all about the handy accessories that come with the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro, it's time to explain how it works.
The Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro works with a two-tank system. This two-tank system ensures that you never clean with dirty water. The two-tank system has one tank which is purely for adding water and the cleaning solution to it.
The other tank is the dirt tank. This dirt tank catches all of the dirt in it. What we like about this two-tank system is that the water doesn't mix, it keeps the clean and dirty water separate at all times.
In the dirty water tank, the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro there is a strainer, so pet hair and debris will be stuck in the dirty water tank whilst you get rid of the dirty water.
So in order to use the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro you have to fill the clean tank with water and the cleaning solution. Then as you move the wet vacuum picks up and dirt and sends it to the dirty water tank.
At the same time, the bristles on the multi-surface brush roll scrub the floor. At the same time this is happening, the water is sucked back up to the dirty water tank, drying your floor as you go.
Once you have finished using the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro, you can return the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro to the storage tray and empty out the dirty water tank.
If you are anything like us, we had to see the mess and pet hair that the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro picked up, by emptying the hair on a paper towel.
The Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro works well on any surface. Whether that surface is an area rug, wood floors, vinyl laminate floors, low pile carpets, or rubber floor mats. The Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro vac head collects hair from everything.
We also appreciate how the controls of the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro are really easy to locate and switch.
OUR TOP PICK
In terms of suction power, the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro is able to achieve between 100-150 AW. We were really happy with this as we could tell when we emptied out the dirty tank there was a lot of pet hair trapped in it.
We've touched on the water tanks of the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro quite a bit already. As a final thought for how well they worked, we were pleased to see that the clean and dirty water remained separate.
The Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro is a nice size that is relatively easy to store away. The weight of the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro is around 5kg, making it lighter compared to other vacuum models.
Who Should Use The Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro?
This is a great product for pet owners. It is able to pick up pet hair from most surfaces. For those with deep pile carpets, you might find it doesn't work as well for that surface.
Other than deep pile carpets, owners of pets would really benefit from the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro as it is great for cleaning dried dog urine and pet hair.
It is not as powerful as an industry-standard carpet cleaner so houses with less carpet would find this great. Although, houses full of carpets would benefit from using this as a daily solution.
We would suggest using this as a daily cleaning product rather than one for heavy cleaning jobs. If you let pet hair sit in your carpets or area rugs this product might struggle to remove all of them at once. To eliminate the problems with pet hair, it is better to keep on top of cleaning.
Is The Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro Worth It?
For those who need a solution to all the mess caused by pets then yes, we think the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro is worth it. Even though this cleaning product can be seen as expensive to some, we think that for the job it does, it is worth the price.
We think that the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro is a great solution for people who are struggling to keep on top of the cleaning needs that come with having a furry friend. The Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro definitely makes cleaning quicker and helps to get rid of pet hair easier.
Overall, we are giving the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro a positive review because it truly is a product made to clean up after pets.
