Rated 4 out of 5 by Birdwatcher Liked but would like a reuseable pad
I was very impressed with the cleaning power of this steam mop. However, I think that after using the 2 pads that come with the kit and all the built up dirt has been removed, it would be nice to have a reuseable pad to use, throw in the washer, and use again. The disposable pads are costly and I like the idea of cleaning without chemicals. Most flooring manufacturers advise to use water only when cleaning floors. Overall, the unit was easy to use and did a good job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by hwmon Works great
I like the steam clean, seems to get the floor cleaner than swiffer wet jet.
Doesn't leave the floor very wet, dries quickly. Doesn't use much water, like the disposable pad. This is the only steam cleaner I have found that can be used on laminate floors. The only drawback is that the power cord only reaches one room, have to use an extension cord to clean two rooms at once.

Rated 4 out of 5 by missslessie saves my back
a mop that works itself and keeps me from bending to clean out the water and lift the bucket and mop.What a valuable tool to have for scrubbing my floors.My floors look fresh and well kept while my back remains comfortable.well worth the price.I would get another one tomorrow as it cannot be beaten

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gomerpcp Best swifter product yet
I have evolved with swifter products over the years and this is the best in a continuing line of products to make cleaning my house easy. I have four cats and all tile and hardwood floor. The steam boost serves the dual purpose of safely cleaning both surfaces. I have given this as presents for two recent house warnings, to rave reviews. I like that the pads are already treated with cleaning solution and are easy to dispose. I look forward to the next innovation!!

Like all other swiffer wet mop products, this leaves a film on the floor. I'll be taking it back for a refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lovestoclean Great cleaning, wish pads were thicker/more durable
I love the quick, easy clean provided by the steamboost. It cleans fast and dries fast. I just wish the pads were a little wider, as wide as the mop, and thicker. The thin parts of the refill pad don't go over the edges, causing them to make contact with the floor and shred pretty quickly. Also, the pads are a bit thin. If they were like the swiffer wet refills, they would probably work better. Then the product would be pretty much perfect.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Amy53 Clean pretty well
I have had this machine for about nine months and it worked great for all of this time. Last weekend the trigger broke and could not use the steam feature anymore.
I called Bissell and was offered a coupon for an new one. I received my coupon yesterday and went and got my new one today.
At least Bissell stand by its products given us a new one if under warranty.
My suggestion to Bissell is to make the trigger part more sturdy or a different design that lasts longer. It was suggested before to also make a trigger that you can lock so that you do not have to hold it to make it work. Also since this was the only part of the machine that was broken why not provide us with available parts. I will be willing to purchase the trigger part if it was available for purchase if the machine was out of warranty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lagitane Recommend with resservations
It gets the floor pretty clean; I've been using a string mop for years, and my floor was clean. But I have a small apartment and I was sick of the water, bucket and wet mop routine. This is much more convenient, but there is a learning curve.
The biggest problem seems to be pretty stupid; the steam "trigger" also releases the broom handle from the steam unit. So, when I pull the trigger for extra steam, I also pull the handle out of the base.
I will keep looking at it - maybe I'm doing something wrong, but it seems to be a pretty dumb design flaw. I hope I can use it without the trigger. Time will tell.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ChattPat Problems with this product
I love the way it cleans but it has one huge problem. The mop does not fit the steamer. Every time I use it, this frustrates me. There are Velcro tabs that were designed to hold the mop in place. Unfortunately, the taps don't reach around the steamer, so it continually falls off when I mop. Today, I tried holding the mop on with rubber bands. That didn't work, either. Please make the mop larger so the Velcro will hold it in place!

I have been using this mop two to three times a week on my whole house and it works great I had a more expensive one and found out with any steam mop you can not leave in on and sitting with the pad on the floor or it will burn out from the heat if you need to walk away tip the pad up so the heat excapes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Quilter Undecided
I have only used the steam mop once, so far. It cleaned well, and I very much like not having to wash the pad, BUT, the scent of the pads is WAY TOO strong and lasting. We left windows open and still could smell it 24 hours later. PLEASE make the pads unscented. Some of us are sensitive to fragrances, even allergic.

Rated 2 out of 5 by me123 it no longer works in 4 uses
At first I was happy it worked great but in the fourth use it no longer steams. Don't buy. I should of read the reviews before buying and would not have wasted money.

Rated 3 out of 5 by dkmcarolina Better than a mop and pail.
The question, is it 50 dollars better. Only time will tell. I just needed something to make cleaning my small patch of laminate kitchen floor more effective and efficient. It seems to have done that after one use. Floor dries faster than a regular mopping. That was important to me too. Looks very clean. Over all I'm pleased but I hope to avoid the plastic rod breakage that others have noted. That's what the warranty is for.

I'm sorry I did not read the reviews before I purchased the steamboost. I have not had it that long and the sprayer button broke. I am very disappointed. I don't think I will buy another one.

This product broke after less than a year, it will not heat or steam. For a little more money one can purchase a more reliable product rather than replacing this one less than every year.
And I becoming more and more irritated with this website that has too many requirements to enter you name. I just want to post a review.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mimi Broken - can't be fixed
I really liked using this mop and thought it was cleaning my floors well. But, like others reported, the trigger broke (inside the handle) and there is no way to repair it. What a bummer!! It doesn't seem like a good idea to buy another one. Based on all the reviews, the company needs to do a redesign and make the trigger mechanism stronger and more durable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by elisa22 waste of money
not sure what this is good for...I can clean my floors just as well with a mop. and use a cleaner that smells good. and doesn't have a cord. I own two other Bissell machines, both I cannot live without...but this thing is worthless. Maybe I can return it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sparkle Easy to use
Much easier to use than a mop and bucket. Wish the cleaning pads came in unscented. We do not care for the scents that are available. I thought my floor looked clean before I began; I was very surprised at how much dirt was on the pad when I was done.

I bought this and wished it would be good.. I have used it 3 times and every time I get a film on my floor ... From the pads ... it would work better if it only used steam with reusable pads... wouldn't recommend

Rated 1 out of 5 by Drew broken after 3 uses
I live in a studio and thought this would be a perfect purchase for quick cleaning of my new wooden floors - no pets, no heavy cleaning. I went the cheap route and got what I paid for. A piece of plastic keeps the long rod attached to the body of the steamer broke after three uses at home….and of course I bought the thing with a gift card from Target and have no receipt. Total loss.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mommykim Much better than a mop!
Love this product! It is much more sanitary than a mop, the pads are kept moist but not too moist by the steam, then I can throw the dirt away. Must swiffer first to get the major dirt and particles off the floor. I pretty much keep the steam button pressed throughout the cleaning and that works well to get the dirt up. It doesn't make the pad or the floor too wet and the floor dries quickly. It's more of a weekly mop than a heavy duty cleaning steam mop.

very poor quality. we have the dry swiffer and are very satisfied however this is very poorly constructed. the steam button broke only after several uses. constructed of very poor quality plastic. Invest in something else.
