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!

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!

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.

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. I am so thrilled with this "next generation" I had the original and then the one that came after that, the wider one.but this time Bissell you really came up with the PERFECT STEAM MOP!!! 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!

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!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Duke - 2 This product is just what I wanted.
The steam Mop is just what I wanted. It cleans better than I thought it would. The regular mop pad does an excelent job. But the scrubber mop pad is worthless as I tried it on linolium floor. The pad wouldn't slide on the floor at all. Every time I pushed foward the pad would just rollup and come off. I threw both of them in the trash. How can I get two of the plane pads which work perfectly?

I purchased the Steamfresh steam cleaner about 6 weeks ago and absolutely love it. My previous steamer always left streaks. I would spend so much time going over my floors, going in different directions, nothing worked and I would be tired and disgusted because my laminate floors never looked clean. After my first cleaning with the Bissell Steamfresh all streaks were gone. There is nothing about the product that I'm disappointed in. The water container is easy to fill, it's easy to push, and operates so quietly you can hardly tell it's on. I add a small amount, about 1/3 cup of the scented water to my distilled water and love the fresh clean scent as I'm cleaning. The feature I really love is the different steam settings. It's nice to be able to regulate from light steam for the formal dining area to heavier steam for the kitchen and kitchen dining area. Since I haven't had the steamer for very long I cannot comment on its durability. I can only hope it continues to operate as well in the future as it does now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lyzjj2010 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.

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..
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.
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!
