Hate it Hate it Hate it

When I first purchased my steam mop I was excited from hearing all the good reviews and thought I had finally found a product that would clean my floors beautifully...boy was I wrong! I was highly dissapointed with this product. It leaves debris all over the floor even after sweeping first. It leaves dirt and residue on the floors. After I mop I can wipe a paper towel over my floor and it will stain the paper towel with dirty brown residue. It doesnt fit in A LOT of areas in my home like under cabinets or around toilets etc. This is the worst floor cleaning product I have ever purchased. I might as well have thrown my $140.00 right out the window. I most definatley would NEVER recommend this product to anyone. I have yet to find anything good about it in the entire year I've had it. I've trouble shooted and looked up tips and advice from the website, I've tried different ways to use it, nothing improves the outcome. I've since returned to using the swiffer wet jet for my hard floors.
I purchased this because I hate sweeping than mopping. I find the unit works really well. First learning to use the item correctly is key. It took practice for me. Using Distilled water is a must. When you start the steamer up you need to pump the water button on the unit down. Keep it still until it starts to steam let the pad absorb moisture once the pad is wet it will move smoother . Continuing pumping water into it. Then once you have done this it works great. The pad is made of fabric and it does get caught when cleaning tile which is understandable because the grout area doesn't always match up with height of the tile. It doesn't stop me from using it I just readjust and move on. It would be the same hang up if I used a sponge mop. The sweep part of it works really great don't do like I did and put the pad on and wonder why it's not working then realize that I put the pad over the sucking area. DUHHH works great. I hate hair don't even like picking it up in a dustpan and OHHHHHH how it gets the hair off the bathroom floor. Bottom line it is a great product and keeping it cleaned after each use keeps me going. KEY is to make sure the pad is wet. HOPE this helped someone. Also when emptying out the sweeper make sure you are over the trash can. It will be wet if you empty right after use. I turn my kitchen sink sprayer on really low and clean it out.

Not impressed!

I was very excited to use this for the first time. I have a dog and 2 young children that leave messes and crumbs on my hardwood floor. I followed the recommendation of using the vac first then steam even though it states you can do both at once. The vac portion picked up some of the dirt but left a lot behind especially under the ledge of the cabinets and at baseboards. I then used the steam portion and again followed recommendations of not holding down the button continuously and only using it intermittently and it still left streaks on the floor. It also left wet strings of pet hair and dust that wasn't picked up when I vacuumed the area. Definitely doesn't stand up to the advertisement of what it can do and I feel it was pretty expensive for a machine that doesn't do what is advertised and that is just a so so machine! I am pretty sure I will be returning this and trying an alternative brand that is a bit more expensive but is worth if it can get the job done that this machine cannot! Very disappointed to say the least!

A Step Up

This product is way better than lugging around the mop and bucket. I recommend using the sweeper first and then using the steamer, but if you're in a hurry, use both at the same time. It works great on ceramic tile and is about at the halfway mark on difficulty pushing between a standard mop and vacuum cleaner. (Probably quite a bit less than a vacuum cleaner.) It heats up very quickly and gives off very hot steam. I love that it comes with two pads. They come out great from the washing machine. You don't have to refill the water very often. Love that there are no chemicals, just hot water. All you have to do is open the windows if it's nice out and light a candle. The feel good clean this product gives is great. Chemicals are so bad when used as often as you do when you clean and this product gets rid of them. The cord is plenty long and the product isn't crazy loud. All in all, happy with my purchase. Pleased that Bissell is the first to try to make a step up in the steam cleaner department. It's a keeper. Fun to use something new.

Really cleans my floors

I have had this steam and sweep for a few months now and I love it. It cleans my floors really well. I can feel the difference after I have used this machine; my floor feel extremely clean. The way I use it is, I vacuum my laminate floors with my feather weight vacuum and then I steam my floors with the steam and sweep. The only issue I have is that it leaves my floors pretty wet and I have to dry them or they have water stains on them. I have a dry mop that I use to wipe up the floors after I do each section. It is a little bit of a pain but when I feel how clean my floor come I don't mind a bit. I like that the head of the steam and sweep is easy to move around in order to get corners or edges. It even cleans grease of the floor from behind the stove. I would not want to be without it. Like I said before the only problem I have is it leaves my floors pretty wet. Oh and I use distilled water as recommended in the instructions.

Disappointing

The steamer seemed to leave streaks on my dark tile floor. Perhaps it will improve as I use it more effectively. I vacumed prior to using it, thinking that would be helpful since I have pets. Floor looked dull when finished and results were disappointing though I went over it again. Cleaning the dirt trap was a bit messy and getting that part to stay on the mop bottom was iffy. It did not stay on easily. My steamer did not come with instructions or warranty and I'm wondering if it was a defective machine returned to the store. Customer service was helpful in directing me to online instructions and guiding me in putting the sweeper together. They were able to register the product online. I just don't think all that time on the phone should have been neccessary. I will say the service person was very patient while I did what she told me to do, waited while I got on and off the phone, even though it was a tiresome activity.

Total Waste of Money - I am SO disappointed

I was so excited to purchase this product - having white tile floors = two small dogs and two cats, and visitors. I have been bitterly disappointed, When I received it the water tank was broken and I had to call and speak to a rep and then wait for a replacement. I sweep and/or fiber mop at least once a day, so the floors are more in need of finish, rather than deep cleaning. I have to vacuum before using the steamer , or else dirt/dust/spills, whatever will just get smeared and I end up using a fiber mop to clean it. Also, the steamer quite often leaves small puddles of water. How safe is that on white tile? I have borrowed and used my daughter's Shark S&S and am so sorry I didn't purchase that. I was going to donate this product to Goodwill, after only five uses, but I don't want anyone else to waste their money. Shame on you Bissell. This product leaves a stain on your good name that the S&S just smears..

ease and speed of cleaning with this product

I love this product. I am done with my beauty shop floor in no time at all. It vacuums up the hair and sanitzes the tiled floor at the same time, all for the cost of distilled water. I do not recommend using tap water, there definitely is a difference. When i first got it in the mail, i couldn't wait to try it but I didn't have any distilled water at home at the time. It gave a cloudy finish with tap water but with the distilled water it is perfect. It is worth every penny I paid for it and for the cost of distilled water at 79 cents a gallon, it won't be long before it pays for itself because the cost of floor cleaners are a lot more. I am sure the gallon of water is going to last a long time too, even doing all the hard surface floors in my house. the hardwood floors come out like brand new. the engineered wood floors also look great.

love it!love it! love it!

You name it,I have bought it.I have tried for sooo long to find a great floor cleaner that will give me a bit of a break.I absolutely love your Bissell steam and sweep.I have no problem getting under my cupboards on the floor.The sweeping feature does just fine.You have to get to know your machine I guess.I take care of children in my home and I get bits of playdough,flour,sawdust and cookie and cracker crumbs.Of course if you spill say,a box of marbles,that may be an issue!! Realistically;would you attempt to pick those up with a vacuum?????A can of peaches may pose a problem also.Again,would you attempt to pick those up with a vacuum?? I highly recommend it.it is well made and I like that it feels substantial.Other brands feel as if they would dissapear in a strong breeze!! This is a highly reliable machine.try it!!

Absolutely Love It! Pick one up today!

I am a volunteer foster for a dog rescue group and have quite a few Senior and Puppy Mill dogs that just cannot navigate the stairway to go down to the doggy door and outside to potty. While I put down potty pads, sometimes these Seniors just don't make it to the pad, or sometimes can't position over it. That means messes to clean up! I originally wanted something to use that would be light and take some of the work out of sweeping and cleaning the floor. I suffer from RA and osteoarthritis and cannot do heavy lifting or work. This machine is everything I need! It cleans up the messes from the dogs. It is light and easy to work with. It takes one step out of my busy day..no need to sweep before cleaning the floor! When I use my Steam & Sweep, I feel my floors are so clean, I could eat off them!! Not so when I use a mop and just push the dirt and grime around the floor. When I use the Steam & Sweep, the odors are gone as well as the dirt. Perfect for a household that wants to use less cleaners for a healthier environment. The pad that collects the dirt is easily washed out under the faucet and hung up to dry for the next use. I recommend this product for everyone!
