What is Microban® antimicrobial product protection?

Having a powerful and effective vacuum will help you to clean your home– but sometimes you have to worry about the cleanliness of the vacuum itself. Since dirt, debris and other material goes through your vacuum after it is suctioned up, there is a risk that the vacuum itself can be hanging on to the very things you’re trying to get rid of. Microban® antimicrobial product protection is built into the Healthy Home Vacuum® during manufacturing to help prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria, mold and mildew in the vacuum.

Rated 5 out of 5 by The BEST product for your hard earned $$$! I recently have won the Bissell Healthy Home Vacuum from the Dr. Oz show! Once I received my shiny new vacuum, I proceeded to rip open the box like it was Christmas! I found that I did have a few pieces I had to put together, but it was very simple and it had all of the instructions included. The vacuum itself is pretty light weight and almost seems as if it's self propelled. All of the attachments work perfectly and the suction that it maintains is awesome! I also love the fact that this is a bag-less vacuum, which means minimal mess and emptying it is super easy. There are also filters in the vacuum itself that help to keep allergens and dust down so if you have children this is the ideal vacuum for you especially if anyone in the home has allergies. Overall, I give this vacuum an A+, it's great for the money and works perfectly! February 15, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Mr Healthy Home Vaccum does a good job of dust and lint( dust bunnies). I used the vaccum on a combination of carpet and hardwood, & tile, it did equally well on all. The rotory brush attachment is good for doing stairs and furniture. Overall I am very pleased with the vaccum. February 13, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great, But Heavy This Vacuum does a great job, but for some it might get heavy at times. If vacuuming a large area, fatigue may become an issue, but then again, it is because of the quality of the build that this occurs, so its give and take. February 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by great vacuum I love my new vacuum, easy to use, seems to keep the air clean while vacuuming, love bagless, picks up dog hair, fine dirt, and at a good price. I also did research before deciding on the "Healthy Home Vacuum" GLAD I purchased it. February 8, 2012
Rated 2 out of 5 by Jet Engine! This vacuum works well but is SUPER LOUD!! It makes my ears ring for ever after use! Did we get a dud or does anyone else have this issue? February 6, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful I purchased this vacuum for it's features & attachments, also it's 5yr warranty & lifetime belt. Most vacs you see these days only have a 1yr warranty if that. I love the suction this has as well. I vacuumed my entire apt with a friends vac and than the Healthy Home and the Healthy Home picked up even more hair,dust, dirt & carpet fuzz than I thought there would be. Vacuuming the couch and the beds was way easier than ever before and the dirt that came off the couch was shocking. I also like the see-through panel above the brush roller so I can see if there is hair that needs to be removed. Both my daughter and I have long hair and we are always seeming to vacuum up hair off the carpets...kinda like the drain in the tub...gross I know but still people shed to lol. We only have the one cat but I did have my daughter vacuum her cat tree and OMG the fur that came off that was gross. Freaked out the cat but hey she'll deal with it lol February 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best value of any home vacuum in all aspects except one the perfromance is excellent. However, it will not pick up fabric threads that have fallen into the carpeting. I have tried all settings and no luck. February 2, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Purchase I have owned this vacuum for about 3 years and still love it. Our son has allergies and asthma and this was the best vacuum to capture dirt, dust, dander, ect... Great suction, I have also used a Dyson ball and found the Bissell to be FAR SUPERIOR for my personal needs. I just replaced the hose and debris container and my vacuum is like new! I do have my husband blow out the debris container with the air compressor monthly, this has seemed to extend the life of our vacuum. February 1, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Seems to be Good Vacuum So I bought this because my Dyson Ball died on me. For the price of a repair I could buy a new Bissell ... so I did. After a couple of months it seems to be a solid vacuum. I have things I like better than the Dyson and some I do not. Like Better 1. The dirt container is larger and needs emptying less. 2. More solidly built than the Dyson. The Dyson, in all honesty, felt flimsy and in retrospect it was. 3. Longer attachment hose 4. Came with more attachments. I like the small suction fed beater attachment for vacuuming stairs and couches, etc. Like Less 1. The Dyson was a bit more maneuverable. 2. The attachment hose was easier to extend and use 3. There is a choke point where the vacuum motor attaches to the small connector hose. It clogged once but cleared without issue. 4. The small floor attachment will not stay in place on the back of the vacuum. The Same 1. Seems to have as much or more power as the Dyson Net result is it seems to be a good vacuum and is as good or better than the Dyson Ball I replaced. Hopefully it lasts a long time. January 31, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good suction I like this vacuum for the suction it has.I have two large dogs that shed alot. When vacuuming the biggest problem is getting all of the hair up.This vacuum does a very good job on getting all of the hair. The only problem I have with this vacuum is that the brush gets completely full of hair and has to be manually cleaned every time I vacuum. And even though the belt is suppose to last a life time I worry about it breaking because of all the dog hair. This has been the biggest problem no matter what vacuum I have used. January 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything Bissell said it would do and more. I am so very happy with my Healthy Home Bissell vacuum. So ready for all applications- floors, furniture, ceilings and drapes, all carried on the vacuum itself and with no escape of dust. It is easy gliding for an older person, too. Clean-up of the machine is also easy. My allergic-self is very pleased with the quality and thought that Bissell has put into this machine. Thank you, Bissell. DB January 31, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by This product is great for filtering allergens This product is great for filtering allergens and other debris but I am not impressed with the attachments that ride on the vaccum. They stay when vacuum is stationary but once you push it back and forth the attachments fall off. It's also extremely heavy compared to my vacuum. January 31, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall, a good vacuum, just a bit heavy. The vacuum does a great job with overall suction of dirt and dust in the house. It is very powerful. It is very heavy to lift up the stairs and two of the attachments fall out every time it's used. January 31, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed!! After only about 6 uses there is a problem w/ an air leak in the canister and I now have to deal w/ taking it to be repaired. Yes, luckily it is still under warranty, but it is still annoying to have to deal w/ the whole process of taking it somewhere. January 31, 2012
