Rated 5 out of 5 by The first time I used my Steam Mop... I live with my 18-year-old son, and our nine-month-old dog. I used other mops, with the bucket of chemical-water, that would leave sticky residue, or dirty streaks. The first time I used my Steam Mop, all I did was sweep, and turned it on high. By the time I was done with the second section of my kitchen, the first section was spotless and dry! I could hardly believe that something this simple, could do such an amazing job! Next job, hard-wood floor in the dining room, and then the laundry room, where the dog has her food and water bowls, and her kennel. Thank you for such an easy and thorough cleaning system! Respectfully, Wade T., Chino Valley, Arizona. August 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Product does amazing job I have 3000 square feet of tile in my home. Have used many products and gadgets to clean my tile. This one is the best! It leaves floor clean and fresh with no sticky residue. Attached brush gets off harder to remove stains and mop glides easily across the floor. Takes very little time to steam entire 3000 square feet. Finally found a steamer that really works! August 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy and fun I have only used it once and I really like it. It did and excellent job, quick and easy. I have used it on both tile and hardwood and it does both equally well. I like the idea that without a lot of prep work you can just pull it out load it with water and in 10 minutes do touch-up from a spill. Excellent product. August 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by hard to use on an old floor This steamer did a great job but was very hard to glide on our old floors, so hard that the mob head wouldn't stay on in the front so I had to go backwards only when cleaning. Very happy with the end results just not as easy as I thought it would be. I believe it is the floor not the machine that is the problem, August 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by PowerFresh Steam Mop1940 I had a Sharp steam mop and never liked it. Stopped working after a short period. I got on line and saw the Bissell Power Fresh steam mop had a good review. I ordered the Bissell Power Fresh and the first time I used it I loved it. So easy to put the water in, had steam in a few seconds, did not put a puddle of water on floor, like the Sharp, just steam. Clean my tile floors so good. The pads and extra brush attachment are wonderful. Love it, beats Sharp steam mop 100% July 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I Love My new PowerFresh steam mop This mop has made cleaning easy and dare I say enjoyable. It heats up quickly and gets the tough dirt and grime off my tile floors. Having two small boys and pets this mop is a breeze to pull out and go. I love the fresh discs and find that a quarter of the disc freshens the house perfectly. I tried a half disc and the scent was a bit too powerful. July 31, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by not good for laminate! This steam mop put a permanent mark on my laminate flooring. July 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Proformance I absolutely love this steam mop! My floors never looked better. Very easy set-up as well as very easy to use. July 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best floor cleaner This product is easy to use, light weight and moves easily over the floor. Clean up easy too, just take out extra water and throw mop head in washing machine. My floor is the cleanest it has been in 7 years. Love it! July 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I'll never mop again! I started looking for a Shark steamer but after reading reviews I settled on the Bissell instead. I have never owned a steamer so I have nothing to compare it to, but I love this machine. It's lightweight. My kids (12 &16) liked using it on their bedroom floors. I was a little concerned about the small water tank since I have 2100 square feet with NO carpet. I didn't want to have to keep stopping to refill the tank. As long as I use the low or medium setting, the water lasts a for most of my downstairs area and one tank does the entire upstairs (wood) floors. I did use the high steam setting the first time on the tile downstairs and had to refill once. I had a pad that came unraveled after washing, however, I called Bissell and they immediately shipped two new pads and four scented disks. I'm a satisfied customer! July 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent Product Purchased this product after reading many reviews. I am very pleased with the PowerFresh Steam Mop 1940. It makes quick work of cleaning my tile floors and they look and feel great. I've bought several mops in the past and this one is the best! July 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by So much Better than I expected!! Just brought my Bissell powerfresh home today. Put it together in no time flat and did my kitchen/dining room ceramic tile with ease. The pad was DISGUSTING, so I know it did a great job....but what really impressed me was the Hardwood. I have used several different steam mops before....and all of them left streaks to some degree. Some less noticeable than others....so I just figured it was a fact of life. NO NO NO! This steam mop not only did NOT leave streaks....but it shined my Floors beyond my wildest dreams! LOVE LOVE LOVE this Mop!! July 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Product appeals to the older generation 1. Lives up to its advertising, good quality, good price! 2. For a 76 year old, it is light weight and leaves my tile extra clean...much better than previous products I've used. 3. Price is extremely competitive. July 2, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this mop This is so easy to use and with a bad knee I am unable to scrub floors. This takes all the work out of cleaning the floors. It even removes hairspray residue on my bathroom floor. I really like it because it cleans without chemicals, and with a cat, I don't want my pet ingesting cheimicals after walking on the floor. I had another steam mop manufactured by a different company, and it didn't clean as well and it died on me about a year after I purchased it. June 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent clean-Steam Mop 1940 This product is awesome. For the price you can't go wrong and your house smells fresh and clean. June 19, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product is lightweight Recently purchased the Powerfress steam mop. Glides over the floor with ease. Heats up quickly. Sure beats the old mop and pail. Recommending the product to my daughter. June 10, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by I am not very happy with the results I have shiney white tile floors in my whole downstairs and I was looking forward to have shiney Clean floors. Well the steam mop cleaned them but left lots of water streaks everywhere. So much for the shiney floors. My previous steam mop worked beautifully, but had stopped working, so I really was hoping the bissell would work for me. I am taking it back to the store! June 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features!! This is an excellent mop!!! Exactly what I have been looking for. I love that it heats up quickly & doesn't spit & sputter when I use it. It is exactly what I have been looking for. Thank you everyone that wrote a review. I read A LOT of them before purchasing this specific mop. Thank you Bissell!! June 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow...Compared to my last one from another maker, this is great! I just purchased this steam mop and used it. We have a golden retriever who drools and spots our dark cherry wood floors. The last steam mop we had (different brand) would require about 5 passes to remove the spots. With this item it was up once and back once and the spots are gone! Love it, and highly recommend this product. June 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great mop Love this mop, gets my floor so clean. I was surprised at how much dirt the mop was lifting up! I posted before and after pictures to Facebook and my friends are amazed! Only minor issue I have is the floor can get very wet at times. If anyone's using a hardwood floor, I would suggest putting floor polish afterwards to prevent drying out. May 28, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not That Happy with the Steam Mop I purchased the Bissell Power Fresh steam mop from your website and that was a mistake, because if I return it I will have to pay shipping, get a new box, etc…and I notice the smell after my 30 day return policy…because I was using the free scented water…I got the steam mop because of the reviews, and to replace my old one from another company which I still prefer, I used that one for long time until I guess died on me. Even if I don’t want to, I have to compare both of them, the Bissell mop takes forever to start making steam, even if you turn it on and set it to the best steam, is not fast enough, the other thing is the container where the water goes is so hard to take it out, my question is who designed this?? Should have a little handle to pull it out…the microban mop gets really stain and smelly and when I use it still has that bad smell of wet-dirt even after one day on Clorox.. When I used it on my kitchen floor or house entrance I can smell that bad odor for a little while …I have a dog and that didn’t happened with my other steam mop…maybe I was expecting something better from Bissell and yes, I’m disappointed, now I will have to put something else on the floor to get that smell out every time I used the mop. I tried the discs and the scented water but that only covers the smell, I have a clean house and I know is not my floor, is something with the mop, maybe is not hot enough or something like that… May 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product The Bissell steam mop has been a pleasant surprise to both me and my wife. As one who has cleaned floors on his hands and knees, this is heaven sent. We have used it for three months now with no problems. It does make a ticking sound the whole time we are using it but it doesn't seem to be affected in a negative way by it. Having a two year warranty makes me feel that Bissell has confidence in this product. I have other Bissell products that have seen much use with little or no issue. We vacuum the hard floors before using this and notice that the pads have become very dingy looking and look hammered even after washing them. I'm sure they are clean but aesthetically they don't look the best. This is a minor complaint that really doesn't matter with an overall well engineered machine. We have used steam mops from other manufacturers and they do not hold a candle to Bissell. You do have to expend a little energy to use this but no more than vacuuming . It does get under overhangs and around the toilet with no problem. Thank you Bissell! April 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very very happy I've had the Steam Mop for a couple weeks now and couldn't be more pleased. I thought my floors were clean before so I was surprised to see how dirty the pad was. The mop is very light and the long cord makes it possible to plug it in once and do all my floors. I can move from my hard wood to my tile floors in a split second. April 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMAZING STEAM MOP!!! Just received my PowerFresh Steam Mop the other day so today was the first time I had used it. I started with the tile floor in my bathroom. Man, was I impressed. It cleaned right up to the walls and went all under the sink and other areas. Love that swivel feature. Then I headed to the kitchen which is another tile floor. I started going with mop and it just glided to all the areas along the edges and began to clean places that I have been unable to clean because it would require getting down on my hands and knees. Just can't do that anymore. I came all around the cabinets and the mop just hugged the places under the cabinet edges and just was AMAZING!. After I came back around to the beginning I thought, "let's see what it will do in the dining room." This dining room floor has certainly seen its better days but I began. I did notice a difficulty in moving on this floor than with the tile. However, I wasn't to be swayed. I thought I will just turn around and pull it back toward me. Low and behold that was the 'trick'. It began to do some really good cleaning on the 'old' floor. I noticed how good of a job it did when I did the hearth in front of my fireplace. Then I was through. Boy, was that pad filthy! One may think they have gotten their floors clean but the pad tells the tale. Now I have an idea for what I shall do next. Since it is truly Spring it is time to put out the cushions on the outdoor furniture. The porch will need to be swept and cleaned. So, since I have a nice new front porch I am going to use my Steam Mop on the front porch. I thought this will really make it SPARKLE! My only complaint is why didn't I order this much sooner. Thanks for the simple guide to putting it together and also for the additional pad and the two discs. I will try the discs but they will be too expensive to keep refilling probably. I am excited to discover that the on/off switch for the Steam Mop isn't really necessary if the button is selected the 4th time. Then it just sorta 'rests' while I am moving something so that I can mop in that place. I believe that this Steam Mop will truly be a life saver and I can hardly wait to try it on one of the lower levels to see how it does. I used the highest because I wanted to see the mop in ACTION. Sure there was a bit of extra water but on high and the floors really needing a good cleaning I didn't mind. Matter of fact, as I write this note...the floors are already dry. Now that is AWESOME! April 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product Much better than using the mop and spray method. Lite weight and easy to manouver. Did a real good job on my floors. I would recommend it highly. April 13, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by How Many Water Tank Caps? I bought this steam mop after the I had the replace the water tank cap on my Bissell Select 4 times in hopes that a better quality mop would eliminate my problem. Unfortunately it did. I've had it about 2 months now and the water tank cap broke yesterday. I am really disheartened by I absolutely love this steam mop, it works wonderfully but I don't want to keep by caps. April 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Why didn't I buy this years ago? I have two chihuahuas so I clean the floors everyday. Dragging around a bucket and mop is no fun anymore at my age so I decided I was going to try the PowerFresh Steam mop. What a great cleaning tool! I can clean the kitchen and all three bathroom floors every morning in less than 20 minutes and everything really smells clean. No detergents anymore! After having the steam mop for a week, I decided to try it on the finished wooden floors. It removed all the old residue from the detergents and made the floors squeaky clean! The PowerFresh 1940 steam mop is definitely worth every penny! It makes my life a lot easier and the floors have never been cleaner!!! April 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth the Money My floors never felt clean no matter what I used there were always streak marks and residue left. I now can walk on the floor with my bear feet and they are clean they even look like I used wax on them, I am so happy with this purchase I got one for my co-worker and plan to buy another one for my daughter. The floors even feel clean three days later. March 30, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Unbelievable Product I just bought this steam mop and was thrilled with the way that it cleaned my tile. You can actually tell the difference as to its cleanliness when you walk barefoot on the tile. My husband even noticed and stated that he had never seen the floor look this good. I love this product. I would recommend it to everyone. March 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE it! I just bought it today and I cleaned my wood and tile floors. The floors dried quick, no streaking, and I love how much longer the cord is compared to other steam mops. When I notice it had a scent disc I thought to myself I won't be using these, what a waste. But I popped one in and it smelled great. The scent last for a couple of hours.So far so good! I hope this will continue to be a good experience. March 26, 2013
