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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sherry 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!!

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JenNC22 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.

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by redamber 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!

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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by don66 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Angel41299 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mom 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…

Rated 5 out of 5 by hondoman45 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cdub 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MauveMelon 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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Alexis 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LeeBarry01 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!!!

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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Natsands 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.

I bought based on recommendation from a friend on FB. So easy to assemble and does a great job, just with hot steamed water! Simple to use, easily maneuverable in corners and around furniture, pad is easy to put on/off. Love the scented disc. Using just half so far. Great fresh smell in my kitchen and bathroom. Plan to use on dining room wood floor next. The water container is easy to remove and insert. Great product!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy Cleaner This makes cleaning floors so fun!
We have ceramic tile floors in the kitchen with wide grout borders and short of getting down on hands and knees to clean it nothing we tried got the floor clean looking. Until I bought this steam mop. Oh how I love this. Oh how clean my kitchen floor is.
We are debating whether to use it on the wood floors because I don't think they are sealed very well - this is an old apartment.
The mop came with scented disks and they smell awful - made me gag but then I don't like Febreze products.
But the mop? Fabulous!

Oh thank goodness for the POWERFRESH.

First the Fragrance Discs, they smell so fresh and clean, secondly, even though I was a fan of your other steam mops, the old versions left streaks...this one does not! I get so excited over great cleaning products and Bissell you make me HAPPY!!!!

I recently purchased the power fresh steam mop after reading many of the reviews. I agree with all of the comments, it is easy to use, i like the swivel head feature. My one complaint is that the floor gets very wet. I have used other steam mops and that never happened. It seems I am the only one that had this problem. Any suggestions.

Bissell PowerFresh Steam Mop where have you been all my life! This product is so easy to put together and use. It cleans up pet messes in a flash. I was able to clean all my floors in less time it used to take me to wash my kitchen floor on my hands and knees and this product had the floors bright and shiny with no film or streaks! The other benefit for me since I do have pets is that the floor is dry almost instantly so no trying to keep the dogs off the floor while it dries! It is so easy to use now I can clean up the wet dog streaks and slobber off the floor at any time! I used to spot clean these messes until I had enough time to wash my floors on the weekend. No more, now I can get this product out and do my whole floor at any time! Which means I have more time on the weekends for other things and who doesn't want that!

I truly love my new steam mop! This is the first one I have ever had and I wonder why I have waited so long. My floors are so shiny clean and feel wonderful on bare feet! No more dragging out the mop bucket and wringing out the mop. It's wonderful and saves so much time and effort!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Theresa99 A great new product!
This is my first mop steam cleaner. Good features such as; smart set steam control panel, easy refill water tank with no spill feature, swivel maneuverability, easy pad remover, cord wrap, and assembling. Even though there is no power switch to cut off power supply to the unit the heating element does shut off if you touch the steam control panel back to steam level, the steamer will cool down until ready to use it again. To be on the safe side unplug the cord when not in use. The only feature that doesn't seem to be effective is the removable easy scrubber. It may do the job if the grouts are sealed. If not it's almost impossible to clean like new.
To Bissell Consumer Care, please follow up on this. It would be nice to know how hot the water reaches its operating temperature. I know boiling point is 212 degrees but it is unlikely for a consumer product to be that hot. My guess would be 140 degrees. On the product box and manual instructions it doesn't state how hot the steamer gets. Its rarely published by the manufactures the operating temperature level. For the record I would like to know what is the maximum temperature of this unit when it gets hot. Some units operated at lower or higher temperatures then this unit. Over all, model 1940 is a great mop steam cleaner for household consumer use. As for longevity of this product that will be evaluated over time. I hope it will give me many years of good use. Two year limited warranty is pretty good. Most only offer one year. Good job Bissell!
