this machine works well for as long as it lasts. I bought my first machine and it lasted less than 1 yr. Forgot to register it so Bissell wouldn't do anything for me. I bought a 2nd machine and that too stopped steaming. I followed all the instructions using distilled water. Made sure I registered this one and again less than 1 yr later the steam stop working. Called Bissell in Dec. followed their instructions to have the machine replaced and 3 weeks later still waiting. Called Customer Service and Bissell still hasn't even shipped the machine yet! Very Frustrated with the lack of urgency to get my replacement unit shipped out. I was told if I didn't receive it in 5-7 days to call back. UGH!!! Ready to switch to another brand of steamer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GrandmaSue Short of a maid, this is the next best thing!
My entire house is tiled, about 25 years old, and this is the first steam cleaner I've ever used. After a recent knee replacement, I don't even want to think about using the big, heavy, awkward string mop and lugging a bucket of hot, dirty water into the bathroom to dump in the toilet... where it always spills. I saw this at Tuesday Morning, for a fantastic price, and decided to get it.
I just now used it, but only in the kitchen, as a test, and it did a wonderful job! I live in Florida, where sand is always getting on the floor, and I have one short-haired cat, who sheds enough in two weeks to build another cat, so without question, I first used a broom and the dust buster.
I simply do not understand why anyone expects the power of a commercial vacuum cleaner in a product like this. You need to vacuum anyway, if you store things under a bed, or have any kind of area rugs, so what's the big deal? Also, why would anyone use this to clean up cat litter? Water? Seriously? I clean up any tracking every day with a quick broom sweep and the dust buster.
Over all, it's a great product and I have already recommended it to my daughter-in-law who has two big dogs, laminate and tile flooring, and two grade-school-age children.

I am very pleased with my Bissell Pet steam mop. Right out of the box, it was easy to assemble with good instructions. The sweeper does a really good job picking up little things from the floor, no more sweeping with a broom before mopping. Pads and water are easy to install and change. Lots of steam, heats up very quickly. Does a great job on my tile and cement painted basement floor. Very happy with this mop. Highly recommend. Shipping was fast too!

This Steam&Sweep Pet floor cleaner is the best product that combines a broom, vacuum, and mop into one unit. This unit is easy to use, fast, and cleans floors in no time at all. A must for any family with medium or large dogs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Angemouse Bought on a whim and absolutely love it!
I knew I wanted a steamer for our laminate wood floors but I had no idea which one to choose. I saw the Steam&Sweep Pet on clearance and took a chance on it. I absolutely love it. It was super easy to put together and I don't have to worry about harsh chemicals on my floors because all it takes is water. I have a 1 year old daughter who is very active and loves to play on our floors so cleanliness is a top priority for me. It only takes 15-20 seconds for it to heat up and then away you go! Its quiet enough not to disturb her during naptime even with the sweeper going which is a definite plus. The only downside I've seen is that it will catch the cord or any other cord you may run over. However, it is easily pulled out. The rag is super easy to clean, just throw it in the wash.

I love this product! We have a lot of foster animals running around most of the day and I was having to wait until late evening to sweep and wash the floors because of the chemicals used. Now I can sweep and clean, at one time, anytime of the day.

I love the steam part of this product, however, the sweep part leaves a lot to be desired. The instructions recommend that I vacuum (sweep) my floors prior to using the steam&sweep, which I did. Of course there's always more to sweep after the steam loosens anything stuck on (just the smallest of stuff.) The steam&sweep pet 46B43 failed to get up the remnants and I ended up having to vacuum my floors (with my Dyson) again after steam&sweeping. I could have saved money by just buying the regular steamer; oh well, live and learn!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed and Frustrated Too Tall!!
This steam mop works ok, but the base is too tall to clean under cabinets! What's the point of having a machine to mop the middle of the floor and then use a second mop to clean the dust and splash marks under the kitchen and bathroom cabinets?

I am happy with the product. If there is a lot of dog hair on the floor, I usually vacuum before using it, as I realize it's not really a vacuum. The sweeper works well for small amounts of dirt, debris and hair. It is a little hard to push since there are no wheels on the bottom, but as you go, you get used to it. It steams very well, heats up very quickly, is easy to refill and covers a nice-sized area with the large pad. The pads are very easy to take off and put on.

I have used the Steam & Sweep Pet one time. On first use, after I finally got the steam part to work, I was much excited and impressed with the cleaning on hardwood floors. It took up a spot that I thought was permanent. It did make the floors a little less shiny; but, they were definitely clean.

I am pleased with my Steam&Sweep Pet. Picks up all of my dog's hair and the dirt on my hardwood floors and dries almost instanly. The only issue I have is it is hard to push around, and it is tough to get into corners and small areas, I use a different product for those areas. I would like to see more of a triangular shaped head for ease of those difficult spaces. Other than that, I love the product and am amzed at how much stuff is on my floor that I can't see until I use the Steam&Sweep!

I love how quickly it works but I would prefer a top access to clean the debris from "sweeping". It would also be nice to have disposable steam pads to purchase. I live in an apartment without washer/dryer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kris This product has some good features!
I used the regular Steam&Sweep at my sister's on her hardwood floors and loved the idea of steam cleaning. I purchased the Steam&Sweep Pet because we have two large Doberman Pinschers. We have concrete floors - a designer house that was built in 1970. My only complaint is that it takes some muscle to push this sweeper and, even though I alternated arms, I was tired after doing the entire house! It takes a bit more strength than I thought it would - seemed easier on the hardwood! I work out and have good upper body strength but am 68 years old. I love the steam for sanitizing and the fact that it dries so quickly. The micro-fiber pads are exceptionally well made.

A very awesome product. I love that I do not have to sweep and then mop. The only downfall is that it does not get into corners well. However, the amount of dirt it gets up is incredible. I would recommend this for large areas. You may want to try a smaller Steam Mop Select for areas like just a bathroom. I do wish it was easier to change pads out in the middle of a job. I have a larger house and tend to go through 3 pads to get it truly clean. The pads do an amazing job at keeping in the dust though.

I had bought this last March and absolutely loved this product until about a month in a half ago and it no longer works. The water no longer gets hot, the pads on the bottom don't stick to the Velcro anymore. And of coarse I'm sure I have had to long to return it. Being a family of 6 and one income the price was great, but don't have the extra money to replace it. Very disappointed it didn't even last a year. ;(

Rated 5 out of 5 by Buddy12 Performs as better than advertised!
This is a great machine. I have a new puppy and he is all over the place. Used the steamer for the first time this weekend and it worked better than I thought. It cut my cleaning time in half. Cleaned up the hair and debris and steam cleaned the floors all at once. Left and clean smell throughout the house. The floor dried quick too. I would recommend this to anyone with or without a pet. I used it on my tile and hardwood floors.
You won't be disappointed.

I was astonished at how clean my floors are, and the benefit of steam to sanitize where I was sweeping. This is my second Bissell product in one year, but my first steam & sweep.
I love to do my floors now, and I don't have to get on the floor to make sure that the floors are scrubbed well.
Thank you, Bissell, you have made a lifetime user of your floor products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Arizona Dust Bunny One step is really two - and one of those does not work well
I was hoping this product would eliminate several floor cleaning tasks and products. However, my experience with the "sweep" function did not meet my expectations. Although the unit does a good job of collecting all the runaway fur balls, it leaves a layer of dirt on my slate floors. Then when I use the "steam" function, I end up with mop pads full of mud. It takes multiple pads to finish the job. The unit also needs redesign or attachments to get into the corners and under cabinets.
I will need to purchase an additional machine like an electric broom to pick up the dirt. I may still need the Swiffer for the corners and around the toilet. Then I can use the steamer to make the floors shine. Instead of one step, I have three.
I am also running out of storage space for the three Bissell cleaners (Proheat cleaner, compact cleaner, Steam & Sweep) the two Swiffers (wet & dry), broom and mop.

I had seen this product and others like it advertised on TV and thought I could stop purchasing so many Swiffer products and save money by not throwing things away at the end of cleaning my wood floors. However, after only 3 weeks of using this Steam&Sweep Pet, my floors are streaked and the "vacuum" part of it leaves a pattern of the rubber arms on the floor as well. My husband even commented that the floor looks streaked and not shiny any longer. I probably have had it too long to return, and it does work on the tile floors in the basement...but will be returning to Swiffer for a streak free, shinier floor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JO54 GREAT FOR PET HAIRS
THIS WORKED GREAT FOR ME FROM A WHEELCHAIR TO PICK UP PET HAIRS FROM CERAMIC AND LAMINATE FLOORS. IT TAKES SOME GETTING USE TO IN THE BEGINNING, DO NOT HOLD THE TRIGGER DOWN THE WHOLE TIME. I ALSO HAVE THE RECHARGEABLE SWEEPER WHICH I LOVE, PERFECT FOR AREA RUGS, DOG HAIRS, CRUMBS. I CANT BELEIVE HOW WELL IT PICKS UP HAIRS! I ALSO HAVE SPOTBOT, THIS PRODUCT WORKS EXCELLENT FOR DOG AND KID MESSES. IT DOES LEAVE A RING FROM WHERE YOU CLEANED IF THE REST OF YOUR CARPET IS DIRTY! IT DOES CLEAN AND IS EASY TO USE.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kristy So far...chalky?
I really want this thing to work properly because it is easy to use, light, and I love that I don't have to use chemicals. However, on the very first use, I did about half of my floor when I noticed it was drying into a chalky film.
Please tell me what I need to do to fix this, otherwise, sadly, I'll be returning it to the retailer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by TJD60 This product needs improvement
I was really excited to receive the Steam&Sweep Pet, it works nice but could be a whole lot better,It did not reach my expectations. The roller bar on the sweeper part was weak and would stop rotating with just the slightest touch, the strength of the suction was not good either, It would not even pick up a little clump of dried dirt about the size of a pencil eraser.Last of all, the whole housing of the unit was too tall to go up under the toe-kick of my kitchen cabinets, and that is a must! I hate to say I have returned my Steam&Sweep Pet and am waiting for my refund. I love Bissell products, but the Steam&Sweep Pet needs lots of improvement, I would purchase it again if you would address these issues.

If you have a dog and you have hard wood floors, you need to get this. Before I got this I was forever chasing hair bunnies. This collects them up and then you can steam clean after. I'll never go back to brooms.. at least not for sweeping :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by jerseygirl Not happy
It is a good unit, but it was no good for my use. Being an owner of an old bissell steam cleaner, this one with the vacuum made me upset. I could not get under my counters, and it was not easy to use behind the toilet. They should have created it with the stem of the handle being in the middle to give you an option of having the vacuum in the front or the steam cleaner in the front. I loved the vacuum aspect of this machine but with it being in the front, not allowing me to have the "swivel" control, this machine is worthless to me. I am packing it up and returning it. I am sad because I love bissell products and have never had a problem with their warranty, but this product made me completely dissatisfied. They have created a good product, but the setup of it in my opinion is not "cleaner friendly", I don't want to have to struggle with my equipment to clean my floor, if it is supposed to save me time, I should not have to still grab a mop to get the spots this unit did not. :(

I bought this because I thought it would be easier to use than a broom and mop. I returned it the following Monday. It is hard to use, heavy, don't move smooth over the surface. I first had to use the sweeper and then the steamer because of the dog hair. When I used the steamer and was done, the floor was NO cleaner than if I had just mopped. The pad on the unit was dirty only around the edges. NO dirt at all in the center of the pad. Did not like at all.

This is an awful product ... it vacuumed up next to nothing, and with 3 dogs there is plenty of loose hair on the floor. Beisdes not picking up dry matter, it smeared dirt into patterns on the floor. I had to first vacuum then mop the entire house when I was done with this product. I bought it to save time , ha!

Rated 2 out of 5 by PregoMom Was hoping for less work; not more
The Steam & Sweep Pet does steam and does sweep, but barely and that's about it. Don't get me wrong - I wasn't expecting it to do the dishes or fold my laundry, but I was expecting it to sweep better than like 75% of the debris and also to steam without having to hold the trigger so much to actually get steam out (and yes, I know you don't HAVE to hold it down the whole time). The "maneuverable swivel head" is a joke and is more ackward than anything; just flopping out there. Both the guide wheels on the bottom and the rubber brush leave smears on the floor, even when the brush isn't on. The unit feels cheap despite the fact that it's hard to push and doesn't like switching from one type of hard floor to another. I could keep going, but I see most of the same complaints out there. It's a disappointment and I regret my purchase.
