Rated 2 out of 5 by Owner of 4 Cavaliers + 1 Cat Great on tile, not so great on hardwood
It's better at steaming than sweeping, which is a problem because a poor sweep job first pretty much guarantees a poor steam job to follow. Worked great on my tile floors but left beater bar marks on my engineered hardwood floors. Will be returning.

Finally, a steam and sweep product all in one. Cuts down cleaning time. Floor is sparkling clean. The steam and sweep is easy to use. I love it!

The sweep porition did not pickup the layer of dust on the floor, which is typical for my floor in Arizona. It also did not do a good job on the pet hairs. The mop side left gray streaks on the floor. I had to wax the floor to remove the streaks.

One of the most difficult chores for me is the sweeping and mopping of my hard floors. Due to back injury which left me disabled. I would just dread having to clean floors.
The Steam and Sweep is a dream. Work done in 1/4th of the time,floors absolutely barefoot clean,and no back ache after. The ultimate test was the next day,after my first use, I spilled on my kitchen floor. Took a clean white wash cloth and wiped up the spot, the cloth had no dirt on it, this never happened before.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ms. Susie Q Was so excited til I tried it bummed.
I was so excited to get my Bissell steam mop and vacuum after trying it several times on wood and vinyl floor I am so disappointed. It leaves streak marks on the floor and when I use the brush it also leaves brush marks making the floor look bad. That is a lot of money to spend on a product that I am so unhappy with. Am I using it wrong? Anyone else have that problem?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Skat70 Very Easy and Effective
I bought the Steam&Sweep Pet for newly installed wood floors. It is wonderful to have a powerful vacuum and steam mop built into one unit. The Steam&Sweep Pet is light and easy to maneuver.
Since I have not had or used this for long, I only wonder about the durability of it. There is no step latch to release the handle...instead you step on the bottom of the unit and pull the hand back. Also, the dirt release bin is not in the best place. To empty that, you have to step on the latch release, then pick the unit up away from the bin. I wish that were a little more accessible to empty.
All in all, so far, it is a great concept and is useful.

Very easy to use and works great!
It's not too hard to push or too heavy to lift. (I have arthritis so that's important to me)
A great addition to my other Bissell pet cleaning products!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Cat Lady My response to cat owners.
I used the steamer for the first time today. I like not having to vacuum the pet hair and litter first - it's all in one step. It did clean the cement floors, but I noticed the cleaning pad left streaks. Since no owner's manual came with my product I'm wondering if I did something wrong. After cleaning, I wiped down the unit, only to find that the kitty litter that was vacummed up got damp and "gunky". Otherwise, the floor looked cleaner (except for the pad streaks). I will try it again soon.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jill Not as expected
I purchased this product because My rechargeable Swiffer Sweeper works great but does not hold power long enough to finish my whole house, which is entirely hard flooring, and this product has a power cord.
On the plus side: It assembles easily, is light and maneuverable, and the water reservoirs and sweeper pan are easy to remove and replace.
On the minus side, the box states it sweeps and mops in one step, but the printed instructions INSIDE the box suggest sweeping first, then mopping. Also, it seems to rely on brush action rather than suction and I found that in order to pick up cat and dog hair, I had to pick it up and set it down repeatedly, so it was not very efficient on my tile or hard wood floors. I plan to return it to the store because I do not feel it performs as represented.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Liz Overall pretty good product
I was very excited about this product when I brought it home. There were two things that disappointed me, however. It is a little clunky for small spaces (around toilets, for example) and difficult to turn. The second thing was the "sweeper" function. It did little good for my floor where toddler crumbs are prevalent. I still have to sweep first before steaming the floor.
The plus side is that the steamer works beautifully. It is dry in just a few minutes and I love that I can just wash the mop pads.

Bought this 3/18/12- Used it twice on sheet vinyl and oak hardwood floors. Does a terrific job on both. Vacuums pet hair very good. It seems to get dirt off vinyl flooring better than any type of standard mop that I've used. Thanks Bissell for making an easy to use product that really works

Rated 4 out of 5 by Allison E Happy with it
Just bought mine and kept the box because I honestly had low expectations. I cleaned my kitchen laminate, hardwoods, and tile. I was happy with how well It cleaned up spots and also fit under my cabinet ledge. I didn't expect it to be an amazing vacuum. I will say if you keep up with it regularly you wouldn' t need to use a real vacuum first. It was a bit loud which I didn't expect. I am happy with how clean my floors are and would recommend it. It's cheaper than other similar products. My only other complaint would be cleaning it out after each use. Still seriously beats a mop or a wet spray mop.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jen Disappointed
I purchased this product despite mixed reviews of the regular Steam and Sweep on Amazon. I got the "pet" version because it happened to be all the local Target had. I'm not sure what the difference is between the "pet" version and regular steam and sweep but I am definitely disappointed in the one I purchased. The vacuum/sweeper function is so-so. It doesn't get the stuff close to the base boards which of course is where dirt tends to accumulate. My biggest complaint though is with the steam function. I tried it on my sealed hard wood flooring. It puts out too much steam/water compared with other steam mops I've used. It left my floor a wet mess, and when it finally dried it was all streaky. I ended up having to re-wash everything by hand to get the streaks off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lastar26 this product is great for pet owners
i have owned this product now for 3 weeks now and i have to say it is an amazing steam mop i have been searching for a steam mop for a while now and couldnt make a decision. This steam mop heats up quickly and steams the floor and even leaves a bit of a shine to my tiles. I was painting and had spilled paint on my floor i used the steam mop and it brought up all the paint.

I love this product. I have mostly laminate and tile floors and it cleans them wonderfully. I have 2 dogs and one sheds non-stop. I am able to get the floors clean in one step instead of two. I only wish that the dirt catcher could hold more!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Penny Could have been better...
I love this thing after useing a Shark.
The removable on board water container is fantastic-so much better than running a whole unit to the sink.
The Bissell gets and stays hotter WITHOUT pumping yourself stupid, I love that too.
The only downside is the TOY vaccuum that it has. IT sounds like a toy and has as much power as one. She pick stuff up but you need to go ssllllooowwwwly.
After a Shark, which has no vaccuum at all- this is well worth the money- if you really like the steam idea and expect NOTHING from the vac.```

I am extremely impressed on how well it cleaned my hardwood floors. It really picked up a lot of dog hair as well (I have 2 yellow labs) :) I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sharon64 THIS PRODUCT IS FAIR
The problem I seem to be having is that the heating unit doesn't seem to heat the water and it doesn't help that I hold the trigger constantly. I like the fact that I can just pop it out of the closet and get right to work. I do have to sweep my floor first but I also have 3 dogs. The price was a little steep.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Josie I recommend
This is a good product for the money. It is not a vacum cleaner so I did not expect it to vacum up the pet hair, but it does a good job of cleaning tile. I do wish the pads were a bit thicker, but that is the only thing I would change.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MA Awful!!
I received this as a gift and was excited to use it as I have the Bissell carpet cleaner, which I love. But after using the Steam and Sweep Pet I was so disappointed. The brushes to pick up the dog hair only made clumps of hair and didn't pick it up. After doing my whole kitchen floor I looked at it and there were streaks everywhere!! The washing pad only uses where it is connected to the bottom. So you are only cleaning with 1" strips, not the whole pad. Plus, after awhile your finger gets tired of holding the trigger and it got heavy.
If I would have bought this product for myself I would have taken it back. But my husband said he would use it in our garage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mother of 3 kids and two dogs Ok product
It works pretty good, my complaint is that my dog's hair is all over the place and when I use the bissell it doesn't pick up all the hair and then when I use both it clumps the hair and won't pick up. It just does not work that well on tile flooring. I paid a lot of money for this and that upsets me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by GreatES This product doesn't work well.
It pushes the dirt around. You have to follow up cleaning the floor with this product with a paper towel to pick up the dirt it pushes into corners. Cleaning the sweeper is a mess, too. There's as much dirt sticking to the sweeper as in the release bin. So, you have to take a towel or paper towel to clean out the part that covers the bin. Considering how much I paid for this, it's a shame that I have to manually clean the floor, after cleaning with this product.

I didn't realize how dirty my floor was or how the cleansers that I had been using had built up over time. My floors look brighter and brand new again. The ease of use is amazing.

I am pleasantly surprised with this machine. I have 2 dogs that leave plenty of dirt and fur on the floors and this machine did a good job of vacuuming it up and then steaming the floor clean. It sure beats getting on my hands and knees to scrub a very large kitchen floor ! ! !

Rated 4 out of 5 by Satisfied Steamer Lots of Pros 7 only 1 Con.
My house is 90% laminate flooring so to say having a steam/sweeper is essential. I love how it vacuums & mops all in one. It also has a nice big water filter so you don't have to refill often. I feel it does a great job deep cleaning and that says a lot considering I'm a huge germ freak! My only con is you can see the brush strokes on the flooring even after drying. Other than I think this is a wonderful product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarLz Wonderful product!!
This cleaner works exactly as shown on TV! I was wary before I bought it, but have about 1200sq. ft. of tile floors. So, I was tired of the sponge mop routine. This is the simplest method ever and gets the floor noticeably cleaner too! I love it and would recommend it to anyone. My floors dried quickly and I was delighted that I actually could maneuver around the toilet base (after practicing a little). I like not having to buy cleaning solution, just plain water works best and leaves no film. Love, love, love it! Thank you Bissell!
