I recently renovated a home I bought, replacing all floor coverings with either tile or wood. My previous vacuum would not pick up most things. I saw this at Overstock, and was intrigued by the dual function and pleased with the price. I'm very pleased with the effectiveness of this Bissell. The dry side vacuums up most dirt and most importantly for me, cat hair. The wet side cleans and drys my wood floors and my tile beautifully and the cleaning solution lasts much longer than I thought it would. Also love the dual resevoirs for clean and dirty water. It's lightweight and easy to clean after use. I'd buy another one for sure.
