This machine applies a great deal of steam to the floor; however, the reuseable pads lose their Velco grip after awhile. Also, the pads need to be laundered after each use. If you have a large floor area, two pads will be dirty very quickly. My biggest complaint is the weight of the machine and the need for distilled water. The motor is also very loud. Even though this still works, I am shopping for another more light-weight steam cleaner.Read More
Just make sure to test a small area first when using it on wood floors. It steamed off the holloway floor shine I use to keep my floors shining .Read More
It works nice but it does leak. i haven't figured out how to stop. so have to empty container when finished.Read More

I bought this as a gift for my sister, and after using it, she returned it. It did not work at all for her. she was very unhappy with the productRead More
I love my new sweeper! I was pleasantly surprised by how effective the vacuum was. It is small and fills quickly, but can be easily removed and even washed in the sink. When I use this sweeper, my floors feel squeaky clean and lovely. It is perfect for cleaning my pottery studio floors after a day of work. I love that the pads are machine washable. I will probably end up purchasing more because because I have a very large, old house with all wooden floors, and each pad is good for one 16X18 room before it really needs a wash.Read More
I'm not sure if anyone REALLY enjoys moping their floors, but this wonderful product makes things so much easier. Within a matter of 15 minutes I had my large kitchen floor and small bathroom floors sparkling and squeaky clean. Heat up is super fast. A quick pass-over was all it took except for a few extra grimy areas I had to leave the machine sitting on and trigger activated for the 12 seconds recommended to clean heavily soiled areas. The machine is very easy to fill and the water tank still had half the water when I was done,. so no refilling necessary for me. The only issue I have is that I had to go over the extreme edges of the linoleum with a paper towel to pick up the dirt -- so the "edge" cleaning isn't great but it's a small price to pay for how well this machine cleaned my floors. If Bissell made this machine without the built-in vacuum, the cleaning cloth would extend further into the edges and I wouldn't have to clean up edges of the floors by hand with a paper towel.Read More
This would work well for very light or daily touchup. I have a big dog who brings in dust and dirt from the yard. Does not do well for pet hair. When I used the product it basically turned the dust to mud and left my floors streaked and dirtyRead More
The product is just so so to me.It picks up loose crumbs and such alright, but for the steam, a warm wet cloth would do the same.Read More
This is a great product. Picks up the debris as you steam or you can just steam if you've recently vacuumed. Love this! My floors are so much cleaner than mopping.Read More
