Rated 5 out of 5 by Powr Fresh Steam Mop This is a fantastic product. Easy to use and my floors have never been cleaner!! Worth evry penny and more. Buy it. You won't be disappointed. February 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Goodbye mop & bucket, hello steam mop! Wow this steam mop is amazing. I've always been using a mop and bucket, and it's just so much hassle. I started looking up steam mops, and I'm really glad I purchased this one! It's easy to set up and use, I just can't believe I haven't bought one before. What a difference this makes in cleaning, I mopped the kitchen, and my laundry room and I couldn't believe how much dirt the steam mop pad had picked up! I'm absolutely in love with this, and I'm going to let everyone I know that they need to ditch the mop and bucket, and buy this steam mop! Oh I also used a half of the fresh scent disk, I can smell it, but it's not strong, which is what I prefer. February 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Steam Dream This mop is by far the best thing to ever happen to my floors! I was using a popular store bought mop for years. That mop cost me a lot of money in upkeep and disposable pads in comparison to my new Bissell. When I moved into a new home with new flooring.. I needed a better way to clean my hardwood floors without having to put too much out from my pocket and too much muscle power to move it. Enter the PowerFresh Steam Mop.. Pros: Very lightweight and compact size makes it a breeze to use and simple to store just about anywhere. It has two reusable pads that are machine washable. These are wonderful and have remained as new after multiple washings in a front loader washing machine. Simply remove and set out to air dry overnight and you're ready to go for next time. With the added feature of being a steam mop, it surpasses my previous non-steam mop by leaps and bounds! The steam is a dream! I no longer have to push down to feel like I am cleaning the floor. The water hopper is easy to refill and slide back in while I am still cleaning. I do not have to turn off the mop.. bonus! The power cord is quite long making it easy to mop the entire floor (including going around corners) without having to move to a different outlet. I love the added fragrance from the optional fresh discs! They are a tad bigger than the slot that is stitched into the underside of the pads, but they do fit after a bit of wiggling. You can split the discs in half making them go farther, but I am one who prefers to use a whole disc.. mainly due to the size of the floor I am cleaning. Cons: Not a one! The only thing I would suggest to the R&D team is to look into the possibility of making this cordless. I constantly find myself wishing I was not tethered to an outlet. Not sure how well it would work being cordless (power consumption?) and the batteries would most likely raise the cost of the unit.. but I believe it would be worth it, if at all possible. Overall, I am extremely pleased with my PowerFresh Steam Mop! It is a huge upgrade from most other mops I have used! February 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works Great The only reason I did not give this 5 stars was due to it was to replace the old mod and bucket for my mom, but I think this may be tiring for her to push on some surfaces (tiled floor). Not that she cannot but due to her back issues it may be difficult. I can use it with ease and one tank of water allows me to do my kitchen, den, and dining room. I don't know the square footage but it beats the mop and bucket routine hands down. Plus the benefit of the steam killing the germs opposed to hot water in a bucket. Cord is long and the entire unit is light. I hope to get many years of use out of it. February 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by steam mop works great. cleanest ever. Down side I can not buy just 2 soft microban mop pads. Have to take 1soft microbam & 1 with scrubbing strips. This is a desservice to the customer.The factory will pakage what Bissell asks for. February 4, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by PowerFresh Steam Mop Bought this steam mop to replace Bissell Steam and Sweep mop. It works well with little or no streaking. It produces more steam but is harder to push than the Steam and Sweep. Fragrance disks don't fit in the pocket in the mop pads unless they are broken in two and don't have any lasting fragrance. I like the three steam settings but find the mop works best when set to the highest setting. Overall I am pleased with this mop. January 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by CLEAN! :) I am so pleased with this product. Recently, i had to let go of our cleaning lady. i have been through quite a few as the house was not cleaned thoroughly. I started to do the work myself and make it easier by purchasing a steam mop. let me just say that when i hired a cleaning person, you could never walk around in white sox. Now that i use this steam mop, our sox remain white as my floors are now crystal clean! love love love this product vey easy to use. Many thanks Bissel! January 19, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall Review I received this Steam Mop as a gift! I like it! It sets up easy and using distilled water I am able to clean the floor without cleaners. I like its swivel head and I like that I can remove the cloth pads and wash them which makes it a much greener product all around. The fragrance disc’s are a waste of time, its good when something smells nice but it only last for a few minutes. Also, you have to be very careful when doing a linoleum floor, it can take the wax off!! I have a bare spot in my bathroom, I hoping it will wax over. You can’t leave it in one spot to long, it gets too hot. It is great for hard wood floors. I LOVE the fact that the Steam Mop disinfects, because it gets so hot! So hot can be good and bad, use with caution but I like this product! January 18, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Steam Mop 1940 Steam Mop Model 1940 works as I expected, very well. Pros: When received it was easy to setup and ready to use in 10 minutes or less. Removing canister and filling with H20 was simple. After plugging it in ( will discuss this later) a short time about 30 seconds it was ready to use. Swivel head makes it easy to get in close quarters for cleaning. A great feature. All & all I would rate this portion 10 stars Cons: In order to turn off the mop you must yank the cord from the electrical outlet from across the room you just finished cleaning. Why no switch on the mop ? Bad bad bad design. This was a big disappointment. Overall rating only 5 stars. January 17, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic Product! I purchased this steam mop about 3 weeks ago and have used it every week since when doing my weekly cleaning. It was incredibly easy to put together and just as easy to use. I am following the recommendation of using distilled water to prolong it's life. I have had 2 other steam mops prior to this one by a different manufacturer and i have to say this is by far a more superior product. I love the feeling of knowing that my floors are as clean as possible - my boyfriend thinks I am obsessed with it - LOL January 13, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by This steam mop is EXCELLENT!!! It even got thru the build up around my cabinets that was left behind from mopping! I love my new steam mop. Once it heats up (which takes minimal time) it glides over linoleum with no problems and cuts right thru sticky spots. January 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the PowerFresh Steam Mop I just used my new steam mop for the first time yesterday on my hardwood floors, and I am extremely impressed. We have three labs and they are experts and tracking in dirt and mud on the hardwood floors. Swiffering worked, but this is 100% better. I was able to clean my floors in 1/2 the time because the steam mop really gets the floors clean without having to repeatedly go over areas more than once. I just ordered the mineralized water and can't wait to try it. I would highly recommend this steam mop for cleaning hard floors (sealed hardwood and tile). January 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this! I received this steam mop as a gift from my parents. I have laminate floors throughout a large part of my house. This mop is easy to use and it makes my floors look awesome! The Bissell scents that you insert into the mop smell fresh and clean. The cloth part of the mop you just throw in the washer when you are done cleaning. I would highly recommend this product. I absolutely love it!!! January 6, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the Power Fresh Steam Mop! I am an above the knee amputee and so I have to clean in a wheel chair. I love this mop. It allows me to clean my tile and hardwood floors easily. I am no longer able to get on my hands and knees but I am able to get the same results that I did when I could. My grout comes clean and the hardwood is cleaned easily. This means alot to be able to keep my independence and and clean home. January 6, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by powerfresh steam mop it didn't clean the tile floor as good as i thought it would . it was average at best on the hardwood and tile floors. January 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Impressed The Bissell PowerFresh™ Steam Mop is impressive. Although we have only uses the mop on two occasions, we are amazed at the results. We used the mop on our ‘pergo’ type kitchen floor, bathroom ceramic tiles and on our living room’s sealed ‘manufactured wood’ floors. We had been using “Swifter Products” and we never felt our floors were ever really cleaned. The first time we used the Bissell mop on our kitchen floor we were amazed at how much dirt was removed and how sparkly clean it became. After mopping the bathroom, the tiles shone as bright as the day they were installed. We were nervous when mopping the manufactured wood surface but it turned out beautifully. We are glad we didn’t buy a lower priced product from another manufacturer. Trust the reviews this is a top product. December 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Used on hard wood floor Excellent steam flow, Easy est up. great head manuverability. December 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super I have had steam mops before.....but this one actually works. It removes a lot of dirt from floor when a person has a big black lab ...... lumbering all over your floors. Currently, I am using this device for my kitchen porcelien flooring. Words like a charm. I love it. I highly recommend to anyone needing a product like this. December 28, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent Excellent product. So much better than our previous steam mop. December 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by This product has great features I love this steam mop. Fresh, clean and no streaks on my laminate floors!! I like how you can add scented water for a fresh clean smell. December 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!!!! I have pergo in my house, and i'm always 'sponge' mopping. . ..NO MORE. . .this thing is the cat's meow! My floors have never been this clean, and it's way easier than wringing out a sponge mop every other stroke. I wish I would have bought one of these long ago. Stop wasting your money on mops/pine SOL. The only short coming i could find is the water cup could be a little bigger. I had to fill it twice for my average size house. December 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful I have another steam mop but it can't hold a candle to the PowerFresh Steam Mop. I love it and it works great. December 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great steam mop I previously owned another brand of steam mop thinking that it was doing a good job. Once I started using the Bissell only then did I realize how bad the old one was. The Bissell cleans great. December 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Greatest cleaning tool we have! I purchased this steam mop for our adult day center, where cleanliness is essential. We have tile floors, and we have tried all kinds of systems in the past three years, and none were satisfactory. In desperation, I finally decided to try this mop. It is wonderful! So easy to use every day, and does a great job. We also purchased the Zing vacuum to use for little pick-ups after mealtime and for daily cleaning, instead of stirring up dust with a broom. For us, this is a winning combination. We use the vacuum, followed by the steam mop every day, and could not be more pleased with the job they do. We highly recommend both the steam mop and the Zing vacuum. December 18, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great mop I had previously owned a different brand of steam mop and thought it did an okay job till I used this one. What a difference. The dirt that came up was amazing which means all along when I thought the other mop was doing okay it really wasn't. December 17, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my Steam Mop I love this steam mop. I have been using Shark for about two years, and I much prefer the Bissell steam mop. The steam is more evenly distributed and it's easier to push. I love the disks; it makes the room smell so fresh. I would like a longer power cord though and an on/off switch, but otherwise, it's great. December 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bissell is the best hands down .... Ordered the powerfresh steam mop to replace a broken shark . I had bought a steam mop from Bissell almost 8 years ago and the pads needed to be replaced so I decided to try the shark steam mop with various pads as a matter of fact I bought 2 as family gifts and then upgraded to the vac/ steamer later . This was less than 4 years ago and all 4 sharks are now disposed of because they malfuntioned. Every Bissell product I own is still working great and is by far the best investment you can make. My powerfresh is a dream. Thankyou Bissell for producing durable products... December 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bissell Power Fresh Steam Mop I used the steamer only once since I purchased it and felt it did do a good job cleaning my floor. I liked the flip-down easy scrubber. It saved me getting down on my hands and knees. I do have one concern--with the clunking sound when the machine starts. Hope this is not mean something is wrong with the steamer I received. December 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than the first one I had Very nice cleaner. Did an excellent job. I like the different levels of steam and I feel it is made more solid than the first one I had but time will tell. My first one had spued water all over my floor and had to throw it out. The only thing I do not care for is the scented disk called Spring. December 10, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love my Bissell Steam Mop!! I have textured tile floors in my kitchen and bathrooms and I can't believe how much cleaner my floors were after using the steam mop. I just love it!! My son was having a dinner party and asked to borrow my mop. His floors really came out clean so we are getting him a mop for Christmas. December 10, 2012
