Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 260 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by effective and quiet I love this steam mop, at first it made a little noise while warming which I read is normal. once it was heated and I started mopping the steam thoroughly cleaned my high shine ceramic floor, Used 1/2 of a scent pad with it and it smelled so fresh. It left no streaks or film like the Wet Jet leaves. You don't see a steam cloud around the mop, but you see the clean floor once your done.. Washed the pad normally and it came out clean. the only complaint I have with this is the difficulty removing the water container. I have medium length nails and was very difficult to slide the water container out without breaking my nails. I think that aspect should be improved by bissell by either adding a button to release it or a better gripping surface. Overall, I'm thrilled with the results on my ceramic floor and my hardwood floor as well. January 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Made my cleaning faster and easier! I seldom leave reviews for products, but the Bissell PowerFresh Steam Mop was so good I wanted to tell everyone. I live in an 1889 Victorian home with the original floors. I have always been on a quest to find something that will clean these floors quickly and easily. I finally found the Bissell Power Fresh Steam Mop and have been so impressed with it, I have purchased one for every floor. It cleans even the toughest grime that gets tracked inside quickly and easily. The water reservoir is easy to remove, fill and replace. The mop head works around all of the furniture easily. I absolutely love this steam mop, it has made a tough job so much easier and you don't have to have smooth, pristine floors which is a great thing if you live in a historic home. January 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Christmas gift If you're thinking about getting a steam mop, think no more - get the Bissell steam mop 1940. I LOVE IT!! This is amazing. I have ceramic tile floors and Brazilian cherry wood floors in my home and this mop works fabulous. I used it on high for the ceramic tile floors and low on the hardwood. I do not own a regular mop and never have so I would wash all my floors on my hands and knees and what a pain. So all I have to do now is vacuum them and use the steam mop and the floors look fantastic. I highly recommend this!!! January 3, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Used it for the first time today I steam cleaned the entire kitchen and it worked well. I filled the tank a second time to do the hallway, but this time, even though the indicator light was on, it would not allow me to switch to a steam level. Please advise on that. Also, there was no carpet attachment in the box, which leads me to believe it was a used return. January 1, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good, but not Great I was hoping that this steam mop would clean the grout in the tiles in my kitchen. The floor is much cleaner, but the grout needs to be cleaned separately. It's still a nice machine and I would recommend it. January 1, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by BEWARE! THIS PRODUCT NOT BE WHAT YOU THINK! I ordered the Bissell PowerFresh Steam Mop because the Shark did not last ( a HUGE waste of $$$). So, because of the reviews when I did research the Bissell seemed the way to go. WRONG! Because, the HAAN that I had (like a dummy I let my housekeeper buy it from me) and it is great on tile and sealed hardwood! That I bought a SHARK and they don't last because the heating element will heat, but, no steam for the floor or tile! A WASTE! So, now I am to this Bissell and you have to read the fine print on page 8 "that it may result in a diminished glossiness"! DIMINISHED my foot! I AM LIVID that the other steamers will work on all floors #just won't last# and now my hardwood looks TERRIBLE!! I will not recommend this product to anyone. I AM SO DISAPPOINTED!! Another waste of good money! December 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! The title of the review says it all. I got this for Christmas this year and have used it 3x so far. Partly b/c I just had major abdominal surgery 2 weeks before Christmas and needed to take it easy and partly b/c I didn't realize we had THAT much buildup on our floors! This works superb on those areas, especially! I'm talking grease/dirt/grime/dog/cat hair, you name it, etc. buildup. The kind that gets into corners and you THINK your floor is clean until you use a product like this! Now I will say it does take awhile to get these areas clean b/c you have to leave the steamer on it for 10-15 seconds and then immediately lean over and pick it up with a towel or paper towel, but once those buildup areas ARE clean, you don't have to spend that kind of time each time you mop. The only thing I was NOT impressed with were the little scented discs. I don't think they did a thing to make my house smell any better and I don't plan on purchasing any more of them. I threw mine away after the first use b/c it just looked nasty and it didn't really smell nice any longer. I use this mop on the number 2 setting for our real hardwood floors and on the highest setting for the kitchen tile floor. That tile is much older and looks grimier than it really is. I haven't had a chance to work with it in the kitchen too much but have high hopes this will bring the tile back to life, at least a little bit. I'd highly recommend purchasing this steam mop. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Easy to assemble (2 minutes!) and heats up super fast (30 seconds) even when you refill the water reservoir! It's easy to manouever, refill and use, all the way around. I sure hope it holds up and I don't have to come back and remove this review! December 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product More than met my expectations. Wide base covers large areas for swift cleaning. Fully cleans and reaches corners very well. I have all tile floors. Well worth the money too! I HIGHLEY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ALL. December 29, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Leaves water on the floor? I just got this product and it leaves tons of water on the floor which then dries and leaves streaks. Not sure if anyone else has this issue. December 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great choice for steam cleaners I bought the Bissell PowerFresh Steam Mop when my manual spray-and-mop fell apart and was amazed at how much more dirt it picked up. The PowerFresh is easy to assemble, set up, maneuver and best of all clean after using. A survey recommended it as a best buy, and I believe it. It's definitely a smart design and well worth the reasonable cost. December 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Steam Mop I researched several different steam mops and this one received rave reviews. I love that it is all steam that is cleaning my floors and we don't have to use chemicals. Highly recommend this steam mop December 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by power fresh steam mop is fantastic I am so glad I purchased the power fresh steam mop.I can no longer scrub like I use to,and this mop really made my tile floors clean and shiny.I have always used bissell products. December 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Floors Feel Clean Easy and fast to assemble. Ready to use in seconds. I enjoyed using the PowerFresh Steam Mop 1940. Quick and fun to use. When finished the floor looks and feels clean. December 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by sparkly clean Clean my kitchen floors and hallway with my swifer...then used my 1940 powerfreash steam mop. Wow. Now that's clean. Thanks bissell December 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just purchased for new home Great and easy to use recommend getting extra pads have lots of tile and worked wonderful my husband even enjoy cleaning the floor December 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by What a way to clean This machine is amazing,I found using it has made a new defination to clean floors,especially with tile floors. It is so easy and not back breaking. I love it. December 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product was more than I expected What a pleasant surprise when a product lives up to the hype. The steam mop did an excellent job on my kitchen floor, and produced an very nice shine. I definitely recommend this mop. December 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use This is a lightweight machine making maneuverability easy. The water supply heats up fairly quickly, so you may start cleaning quickly. Adding the scented Bissell distilled water gives a nice clean aroma. December 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I purchased this about two weeks ago and the first time I used it I was in love with it. It is easy to use and cleans the floors to a shine. Gets all the dirt and grime off my tile floors. Using this steam cleaner is guick and easy. The greatest thing I have purchased in a long time, I can't say enough great things about it. Everyone needs one. December 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Steam Mop I just received my steam mop, I love it. I clean the floor in about 1/3 the time. We live out of the city and my kitchen floor gets very dirty. This is the best thing I have gotten in a long time. It is a great tool. I highly recommend it. December 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best! I am not the most fastidious cleaner but when I clean I like a deep down clean. As I have moved into the 50+ age group, scrubbing my floors on hands and knees just doesn't quite work anymore. By far, the Bissell PowerFresh Steam Mop is the best cleaning device I have ever purchased. Love it for the following reasons: Ergonomic (no bending) Quick and easy to use, easy to store Lightweight No Mess - No Chemical Residue - No water pooling on the floor Satisfaction in knowing that my floors are not just clean but sanitized. While this product may not be for the housekeeper who approaches their cleaning as an aerobic workout. The Bissell PowerFresh Mop is the best answer for the methodical cleaner looking for a deep down clean. Brava! December 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I will NEVER mop again!!!! What a great, fantastic, amazing wonder!!!! I used it three times already, so easy to use, makes the floors shiny and really clean!!! Get rid of your mops and buckets!!! You have to buy this. I use filtered water, and put a few drops of scented soap in it and the house smells like heaven!!! Plus, I throw the pad in warm water with a little detergent and it is clean and ready for the next use. Thank you BISSELL December 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! Got this as an early Christmas present, and I love it. My wood floors look great and I also got the carpet refresher attachment, and loved the way it refreshed the carpets. I researched long and hard before I put this on Santa's list, and must say it hasn't disappointed yet. December 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product This is my third steam cleaner and I am happy to say the last I'll need to buy. It is so lightweight and easy to maneuver! The water tank is large enough that I can do all of the wood floors in one shot (and there are 5 of them). The fresh disc is great as it leaves just enough scent to notice but it is not overpowering. I would highly recommend this product! December 19, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Loved it until it stopped steaming... I have tried many floor steamers because they all quit working after a year or less of use. (in my case I only had mine for 10-12 months) Unfortunately the Bissell Power Fresh was no different! So do yourself a favor and DON'T purchase any replacement mop pads until you are sure it will keep working. I was so pleased with the steamer and bought more mop pads thinking I had found one that would continue working! So sorry this steamer was no better than all the others! December 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love it!!! I purchased the power fresh a year ago. Love it!!!!! I gave it a five star review but.... I wish the water dispenser was easier to detach. Kind of hard to get a good grip on. Other that that, I love the cleaning power. The floors are old vinyl but it cleaned all the old accumulated dirt out beautifully. I just purchased two more for family members. BISSELL didn't have stock, they researched and found where I could purchase what I needed, thanks for that. Did I mentioned I loved it!!!!!! Tossed my old mop and I will never go back. Get in more stock cause word of mouth should afford more sales. Thanks again. December 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOW!!!! So Easy!! I don't know of anyone who hates to mop as much as I do. A few years ago I bought a more expensive brand name steam mop (not bissell), and the mop didn't even last 6 months. I finally broke down to buy this one, and WOW is all I can say. This mop has a long power cord, will stand upright when not in use. It has 3 different power settings, and very easy to use. This mop doesn't hurt my back as I do not have to scrub with this one. It is amazing!!! I love to mop my floors now...bet you never thought I would say that :-) December 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Cleaning made easy This steam mop does an excellent job. My floor is uneven and has many little crevices that dirt collect in. With this mop it gets in there and the dirt disappears and if it doesn't I use the little brush that is attached. It is lightweight and heats up very fast. I love it and I have bought one for my granddaughter. December 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little steamer We have tile floors throughout our home. After vacuuming I steam each room. It is wonderful. Easy to use, lightweight, easy to maneuver. I purchased additional pads so that I could change the pads if needed. I should have purchased this little steamer sooner! I recommend this product. December 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Xmas Gift to myself EVER! Best Mop So I have had a steam mop for years now but never really used it because it didn't work that great (small steam head, ran out of water fast, took forever to clean the floor). So a year ago I purchased on Black Friday a Bissell vacuum and I love it! So this year I said to myself "I have to get a New Steam Mop!" after searching online and reading reviews this one caught my eye and i thought oh it looks perfect for all my needs. and boy was I right!!! I have a dog (lab) and he tracks in mud, dirty, etc. also a husband who can sometimes make messes and only wipe it quickly leaving a sticky mess. Also my house is completely tile and ugly tile i may add that never looks clean even when it is. Well today I received my mom and I immediately opened it and set it up (which was so easy) I also looks very nice. I love that the steam head is a large service so it covers more space as i am cleaning, i love the scrubbing brush too! Well after cleaning my entire first floor of my tiled house which never looks good I can say with a 10 STAR rating my floors look amazing and I didnt have to pass a spot more than 2-3 times for it to look great! it also drys very fast which i love seeing i have a dog and husband who dont like to wait to walk on the floors! sorry for such a long review but i just have to rave about it because it is so Wonderful! So if you are thinking should i make the purchase?,...YES ABSOLUTELY you wont be disappointed Thank you Bissell for my wonderful steam mop and your great customer service . I live in Guam and LOTS of companies and stores wont ship here, but you do and with amazing cust. service and great products! Happy Holidays from one very happy customer! December 9, 2013
