When I was growing up I remember having a carpet sweeper & I loved it. When I saw Bissell still sold them I could hardly wait to get one. After reading reviews from other consumers I decided on this little beauty.
When I opened the box & saw the size I was rather shocked because I remember the one from childhood being a bit larger. After using it the first time I was pleasantly surprised & even grateful because it goes everywhere! The biggest to the tightest. It really does go from bare floor to carpet & back to bare floor!
And with it's edge cleaning ability...WOW!! Even dog hair & sand are no match. (Using my broom in a house with three dogs is futile, the pet hair just goes airborn)
I have combination floors in my home; wood, tile, area rugs, & linoleum. This little sweeper handles them all with no problem...ever!
For everyday cleaning it's perfect & beats dragging out my upright vacuum. It's also as light as a feather so we mature people & even the kids can use it with ease. And emptying out the dirt & hair couldn't be simpler. Just hold the collection bin over the garbage can, lift & empty, you're done!
To say the least, I'm in love & highly recommend the Bissell Sturdy Sweep. You will never go wrong owning it & I might add since it's non-electrical, you can still clean when the power goes out or you just want to save a bit more on the ol' electric bill.
Thank you Bissell, keep up the great work!!
