Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 281 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works like magic. Many times, I've mopped the floor tiles by my front door, with tiles heading left to the master bedroom and to the right toward the dining room. I came to realize that I was never really cleaning the tiles or grout. I was just making them temporarily shiny on top of a layer of dirt that got down into the tiles' and grout's pores, nooks, and crannies (the tiles are not a flat surface). The PowerFresh Steam Mop lives up to its name. It was steaming as much as I was sweating, but the difference after just one mopping is noticeable (and a bit embarrassing, due to how dirty my floor actually was). Another round with the mop brought up even more dirt and grime, and I need to mop once more to remove the shadows that linger on some tiles. This is not to say the steam mop doesn't do a good job -- it does. But after a decade of never truly cleaning (besides tidying or making shiny) the tiles and grout, I had my work cut out for me. Word to the wise: Don't add any formula or detergent to the mop's fluid holder. Just water, preferably filtered to prevent mineral build-up. I've used both of the scented demineralized waters Bissell sells for the mop. Both smelled good in the bottle. The orange scent didn't linger. The eucalyptus did, but the scent was faint and I don't think anyone visiting would notice. But they are still a good source of water for the mop if you have tap water that's hard. December 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by obessive compulsive cleaner's dream mop This steam mop is a dream come true. I really, really love a clean house, as the old saying goes, a place for everything and everything in its place! I had another brand of steam mop that gave up on me, it was one of those trigger mops. I did some research and found the Bissell Power Fresh Steam Mop. It soon became my new best friend. We will be BFF. The ability to choose the amount of steam you need is a real winner, Not having to constantly squeeze the trigger is certainly a plus. The brush attachment to remove stubborn spots only adds icing to the cake. The water container is easy to remove and fill. The pads are big enough to speed up the job and some genius put scrubby wavelike things on one of the pads to make it simple to clean up a dirtiest floor. The water heats up very fast and the job is completed in no time. The long cord lets you do a large room without having to stop and move the plug. I am extremely happy with my decision. December 14, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great Product so far Great steam mop so far. Works really well, especially along baseboards because the pad covers the crevice and lower part of the baseboards as well. Easy to operate. I have had two Shark steam mops before that were a lot harder to push around and both of them didn't last very long. Loving the Bissell, let's hope this one lasts. January 16, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Steam Mop!!! When I bought this, I was a little skeptical about it, but it far exceeded my expectations! It is very fast and very easy to use. The floors shine after using, and if you use the "smelly" stuff your house smells great! I really like using the fragrance discs. And it can also convert to a carpet cleaner too, so that's a plus in my eyes. December 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product! This mop has awesome cleaning power and it only uses water! It has made our floors look like new and it dries fast! Love it!!! November 20, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by This product doesn't work well with arthritis The designers at Bissell Corp. must not have arthritis and have never had to remove the water container with arthritic fingers. It's very painful; it has also removed the shine on my vinyl floor in areas, if you let it sit in one spot too long. therefore, I have only used my PowerFresh about 4 times since I received it as a Christmas gift from my grandchildren last year. I use a sponge mop. It would have been nice to have a handle on it, so it could be easily pulled straight up. Of course if it were made of plastic, the handle would eventually break off, I'm sure. I have a Bissell Featherweight sweeper, and I love it. November 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best steam mop I rated this steam mop a 5 star because it out works the steam mop I had. It worked great I thought until I used the Bissell machine. I like the 3 kinds of steam you can choose, unlike the other that had only 1 setting. November 1, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by 10 months then trash. Worked great then it just stopped after 10 months. Really sad I bought one over 3 years ago not a Bissell but one that swims in the ocean gave it to my mother and she is still using it. This is ridiculous. December 8, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I'll Never Go Back! Over the years, I've tried every kind of mop and floor cleaning product that has come along. Hated most...tolerated others. It was such a messy, unsatisfactory chore that I didn't mop for weeks. I would just spot clean. I've only had my steam mop for a few weeks, but now mopping is actually fun. It's so easy and the results are so satisfying. Plus, I don't need those special cleaning solutions just a little vinegar if I want to add some extra punch. Thanks for a great product! October 15, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bissell Powerfresh Steam Mop I love it for cleaning my tile floor (entire first floor). It doesn't clean the grout- it can't reach the grout, but it does a great job on the tile. My first bissell was replaced when it would not heat up after about a month. Fill out your warranty card :) If there is a problem it will pay off. October 8, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Can't go wrong with this steam mop! I love this steam mop. Bought one last year from QVC and couldn't believe how well it cleans the floors. I have laminate floors and was worried about the steam on them. I don't worry anymore as the steam just cleans and disinfects, leaving the floors just beautiful. This mop is so easy to use and comes with a super long power cord. No need to change power outlets when going from room to room. You get 2 mop pads (soft one and scrubbing one) and they wash up nicely in the washer. Last week, I ordered a second one ... for my friend who also loves this mop. Thanks Bissell for making such a GREAT product! September 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great for Tile and Marble floors We recently moved into a home with Tile and Marble floors downstairs. It was professionally cleaned before we moved in and the floors looked clean. I steam mopped the floors with the Bissell and I could not believe how much dirt it took off the floors after they were previously cleaned I was shocked when I saw the Mop Pad. August 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Simple to Put Together and Use I am so pleased with my new Bissell Steam Mop....Even I could easily put it together and used it right away....Amazing how much "dirt" I got off my kitchen flooring...Also used it in the tiled bathrooms and happy I bought this vac. August 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 5 stars but also 1 star too!!!! The 5 stars is because this is a GREAT product the one star is because it only lasted 17 months. My first unit, I purchased in March 2013, used it once a week every week and on Thursday Aug 14,2014 it stopped working...totally stopped working so I had to order another one!!! Hope when the new one arrives it will last longer!!! August 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Waited too long for a steam mop, this one was worth the wait! Brought this steam mop home and immediately put it together then cleaned all the tile floors. It did a great job in very little time getting all the newer floors cleaned. The older floor (over 20 years old) needed a lot more tender loving care, using an oxygenated bleach powder mixed with warm water that I sprayed on the grout. Then I let the solution sit on the tile and grout for 30 minutes or so, scrubbed with a small brush, wiped up excess water and dirt that rolled off with a towel. Used the steam mop to clean off the residual the solution left. Took a couple times with a clean mop cover each time, but now the floor looks new again. The mop makes cleaning the floors so much easier than the scrubbing on my hands and knees. I used the highest setting and it didn't bother me that there was not a spray button, but an off/on switch would be nice. August 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazed and Completely Thrilled!!!! After two back surgeries scrubbing the floors in my home became an all day job and one I paid for two days after. No, longer able to hand scrub and dry, I went to a standard mop. My floors never seemed as clean and went longer between cleanings, because it had become such a painful chore. NO MORE!! and I will never be without this product in my home. I can't rave about this steam cleaner enough and I am thrilled to have taken back my standard of clean in my home. August 9, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great machine for tile and hard surfaces This is a great lightweight machine to be able to clean tile in the kitchen, bathrooms, entry anywhere there is a hard surface. The cord could be a bit longer but I just switched plugs. August 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by My new best friend I bought the PowerFresh® Steam Mop 1940 about a month ago based on great reviews. They are all true!! I was able to put together intuitively in a couple minutes. Only need one Phillips screwdriver for the one screw, and ready to go. The water tank is easy to remove and I can do my entryway, bathrooms, kitchen and laundry and still have water left in tank. I use R.O. water, and when I'm finished, I empty the tank and leave it out to dry out and wipe any excess water around where it fits to unit. Then throw the mophead, which you can easily remove by the pull tab, so as not to burn your hand., into the washing machine on hot water with just detergent, and you're done!!! It's as easy to use as it was to put together. The people here at Bissell have really been helpful, as I had a lot of questions before purchasing. I give it 5 stars, but it really deserves more!! Sharon M. August 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING PRODUCT! I have only used the powerfresh steam mop once on our very large kitchen floor and two bathroom tile floors. I was super-impressed with this product and highly recommend it to anyone who is considering buying it. It is very easy to use and is a powerful mop. I had to wash the mop head as it got so much dirt off our floors (very embarresing) from the first use. I especially appreciate the swivel head and it fits behind and along side the toilet with ease. A great product - thank you Bissell. August 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bissell Steam Mop I used it for the first time and was very impressed. I like the light tells me it I ready. The feature to be able to control the amount of steam is awesome. I couldn't believe how well it cleaned and was very easy to use. I am looking forward to it preforming as well with each use. August 3, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by plug in and no more mop and buckets!! so happy with my steamer. i mopped my kitchen floor 2 days before i got my new steamer, then i steamed mop the floor i could not believe the dirt that came up with the bissell steam mop. easy to use and a better clean! August 2, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this product Cleans tile floor, wood flooring too, leaves it completely spotless. My mom borrowed it, she said it was a waste of money, she used it, she loves it and now wants to buy one for herself. Her floor gets dirty so easily, smudgy, black stains, she has white tile flooring. She used it and all the dirt comes off easily. Buy it, makes cleaning much easier and faster. Even my husband "mops", easy to use even he can do it without complaining. July 28, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Clean floors in no time. The Steam Mop is very easy to use and always leaves the floors clean and fresh smelling with very little effort. We have been using it for over 6 months now, our kitchen floor has never looked so good. July 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Well Worth the Money. Excellent!! Works well on tile and even cleans the edges. A few suggestions for the engineering department. A steam trigger on the handle would enable the user to have control over when to release the steam and an on/off switch is highly recommended. Overall, very pleased with the performance. July 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Cleaner This is my second Power Fresh Steam Mop the first mop worked well, but quit working after 6-7 uses. The reason was I didn't read that you could not use vinegar in the cleaning water. I am using distilled water only in this mop and so far it is working great. I love the mop that is why I ordered the second one I hope it keeps working and doesn't let me down. It really does clean well, I love it. July 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than the Haan I have used 2 Haan steamers prior to my purchase of the Power Fresh Steam Mop and this steamer far surpasses the Haan. It has a swivel head getting to more/tighter places, has gotten more marks off the floor, has a longer cord allowing for less un/plugging, and comes with the optional discs/liquid to make your home smell good while cleaning. After using both, I prefer the discs~ I really cannot smell the liquid at all, but the discs (I only use half a one each cleaning) smell very nice. The only minor issue is the difficulty at getting the water tank out of its holder~ can be a bit frustrating at times but nothing major. I have recommended this steam mop to many family members, with two already purchasing/enjoying the ease of use and cleaning. Highly recommended steam mop~ July 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A clean freak's dream! I purchased this product in June and have used it twice. I was an absolutely die-hard hands and knees type of floor cleaning fanatic. Since our entire 3000 square ft. home has tile floors, mopping was always an all day job. Much to my surprise, I LOVE my PowerFresh Steam mop! The floor feels so clean and it takes half the time to clean without sore knees! I researched on line prior to purchase and am glad to report that the raves are truly accurate. For ease, convenience and powerful cleaning this is definitely the right product. It is lightweight and filling the water reservoir is very convenient. Thanks, Bissell. July 4, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superior Steamer by the Steam Queen As the Queen of Steam Cleaning and having engaged in using three other steamers for a 2800 square foot home, all tile, this is the Superior Steamer and only steamer I will use from this day forward. It removes dirt and grime not only from all the tile but also from the grout. Enjoy using this easy to use and highly effective steamer. July 1, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Stopped working I bought this product 6 months ago and it suddenly stopped working. It's too bad because I really loved it when it worked. June 21, 2014
