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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very pleased! 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!!! March 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! March 23, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Powersteam Mop Very good product-easy too use-Except There is no on/off switch, which has been reported before. Does the job it's suppose to and does it very well. Would buy one again. March 18, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by ANOTHER 10 STAR Bissell product! 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!!!! March 17, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall this is a great product, many nice features 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. March 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing 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! March 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Power Fresh Steam Mop 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! March 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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! March 3, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Great Just started using my PowerFresh Steam mop and already love it. Easy to use and it actually cleans like they promised it would. I recommend this to anyone. March 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Great This is my third steam mop and by far the best one.The best thing for me, I only had to feel the water tank one time.It did a perfect job on my tile floor and the scrubber work great to.The powerfresh is very sturdy and has a nice design.If you want a awesome steam mop buy the Bissell Powerfresh. March 1, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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? March 1, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by mean clean does a Great job of cleaning! love the fresh scent discs only down fall is hard to push. the mop does not glide effortlessly February 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Pleased! I had another brand name steamer and It felt like I was just pushing around the dirt. This machine has a very nice soft pile cover that holds the dirt and cleans it away. Very Pleased! February 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very Effective Product 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. February 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use.. I love this product ! I have a lot of floor area. I was done quickly and I feel that my floors are clean and sanitized. The steam mop is light weight and easy to use. I don't know how I did with out it. February 25, 2013
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
