Rated 1 out of 5 by SusanB Great while it worked - which wasn't long
I loved my Steamboost when I got it. It was so easy and the floors looked great. The problem is it stopped working today after about 6 uses. I cannot find anything in the manual to troubleshoot not steaming except leave plugged in longer. Tried that. So disappointed. What a waste of money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LisaW6061 Caution on real hardwood floors
I purchased this mop to make cleaning my hardwood floors easier. I have real random width pine floors refinished and top coated three times (sealed).
Using this product I thought it was fabulous until I start noticing areas of white haze (moisture). Because of the steam I never lingered in one area long and never rested the mop for any long period.
Unsure what to do now and can't find a customer service number to contact. Will not be using this mop again on my hardwood. Will save it for my kitchen & bathroom tile.
Hopefully Bissell will read my comment and contact me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dale 79 Swiffer Steam boost is great for me
Purchased this product based on previews.Used my small finger to press corners of pad into the gripers. Then a wooden handle object to really get the corners fastened. Found it wouldn't work on a dry surface. My vinyl floor has a zillion dimples and needed deep cleaning. Found by using MrClean full strength, scrubbing in with stiff bristled brush with a long handle attached and leaving for hours/and overnight to soak in. Once over with string mop, then steamboost worked great. More mopping with water and turned out cleaner than had for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Allie0904 Love this product
It is great because it is very light weight. I have to climb three different levels of my house to use this and it is great to carry up and down the stairs. It did an amazing job from the first time I used it and it is super easy to use! I have had a shark in the past and it never seemed to work right and washing those pads is just gross. Love the smell the Bissell Febreeze pads leave in my home. Thanks Bissell!

Good product that could be made better by adding an on-off switch and stronger scrub pad like the Swiffer wet jet type.

We have a lot of oak floors in our house - and I just used my new Steam Booster on them. So pleased with the results! It picked up lots more than my usual mopping, the floors look great, there is no cleaner odor and they dried quickly. Cut my cleaning time for Thanksgiving Day in half!

The mop worked great. It got my floors really clean. I am interested to know how many square feet one pad should clean. Nothing on the instructions gives any indication of how often the pad should be changed when cleaning. some suggestions would be appreciated.

I just used my new Swiffer steam cleaner - and I loved it. I can't remember when I have felt my floors were this clean and they look amazing!
It did take longer to warm up than the 30 seconds advertised - but the 2 minutes was well worth my time. so just be patient and you will be well rewarded.

I tried the steam cleaner for the first time today,it's easy to use and all i can say is WOW. I was so impressed on how clean my floors got and the smell was so nice. I'm throwing away my mops and i would buy the SteamBoost again. Thank you for making this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed in NY This product does not work as described or seen in the video
I purchased this product twice. The first Swiffer steam boost did not steam at all. I returned it to the store. About a month later I decided that the first one might have just been a fluke, just broken in transit, so I tried it a second time, this time it steamed ( a very little ) the first time I used it. It has not steamed since. I read the instructions again I did everything correctly, tried it again still no steam. This product is too expensive, don't waste your money or time. I am a poorer but wiser consumer now. I always thought Bissell made quality products, but this one should be taken off the shelves. Not well made or designed.

I like the idea of steam cleaning but the pad leaves streaks on the floor surface. Can a regular cloth / pad be used with just the unit to remove the steam boost residue?

I've only done one room, as I'm deep cleaning which involves rolling up area rugs, washing walls, etc. But the one room I've finished, the Bissell Swiffer Steam Boost did a great job. My apt. is 50+ years old, with old fashioned tile floors. The floor is shining, no streaks, and I feel confident in the results this mop provided. I would recommend it to friends and family. Price is great, too !

Rated 1 out of 5 by Disappointed Customer Quit working after one use
I originally thought that cost of this mop was a bit high considering it's somewhat flimsy construction. But the first time I used it, the results were great. I thought I was getting my floors clean with my Swiffer Wet Jet. Not!!! I was amazed at how much dirt was on the pads with the Steamboost. However, the second time I used the Steamboost, it just dribbled water all over the floor when I pulled the trigger. I re-read the directions and I had done everything right. It just would not produce any steam.
I like how clean steam gets my floors so I will look at purchasing a better quality steam mop. This piece of junk is going in the trash.

Rated 4 out of 5 by aligirl great value for the price
I was given this product as a gift from my Mom after my Haan cleaner broke. I was skeptical, but was in dire need of a good cleaner for my hardwood floors. I could not be happier with this product. I did a test and it really cleaned the dirt of the floors better than other spray on products. It left no streaks, dried without being sticky and had a very slight but nice scent as well. I am thrilled to have a product that actually cleans well!

I purchased the Bissell Swiffer today at Target and was extremely pleased. We have hardwood floors on our 2nd level and I have always felt like they are never clean enough. The tool was easy to use and did an excellent job! I would highly recommend this product to anyone with dogs and an active household!!! It is small in size and easy to store. Our cleaning lady is going to be over the moon when she arrives to clean next week!

I was away for a few days and came home to find that my very old cat had thrown up and had diarrhea everywhere! I was desperate for something to both clean and disinfect. I bought the Swiffer Bissell Steamboost mop and it worked fantastically! It had no issues cleaning up the dried stains from the floor. I had been slightly skeptical due to some of the reviews but I am not a skeptic now! The Swiffer Bissell Steamboost cleaned up everything with very minimal effort. Definitely would recommend this product to anyone!

I love this product. I have tile through out my entire house with the exception of two rooms that have carpet. This product makes it quick and easy to clean the floors. My son is in charge of cleaning the kitchen and even he enjoys using this product. Wouldn't trade for the world.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ringer1511 Overall, a very worthwhile purchase.
My husband and I live in a townhouse. Excluding the bathroom, the entire upstairs is carpeted and most of the downstairs is carpeted. It was a pain in the butt to mop, because there just wasn't much area to clean. I saw the ad for the Swiffer Bissell Steamboost, and took it with a grain of salt- I haven't liked other Swiffer products. When I found a $5.00 off coupon, I decided to try it.
It was very easy to put together. The water tank is a little hard to fill without spilling, but that's not a big deal to me. It heated up quickly, and I like the indicator light. The cord is an awesome length. I think it cleans well, much better than the traditional Swiffer, or the Wet Jet. I cannot compare to other steam mops, because I haven't owned any. I think it does a much better job than the traditional rope mop. My floors dried fast, with no streaks or residue. I only needed one pad for everything. The pads smell amazing.
My hand did get a little tired from holding down the steam lever, but it wasn't too much to do, and it fit nicely in my hand. I wish the mop (or the refills) had a more grippy side, to help with more sticky messes.
Overall, I am very pleased with the product. There are a few things I wished the mop had; a removable water tank (or one with a bigger hole), pads that had more of a grip and I kinda wish the steam lever had a locking mechanism, so you don't have to hold it down. For those reasons, I gave the mop a 4/5 stars.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Cleaninglady Not worth the money
This product was expensive and performs as if it were on the cheap side of pricing. It feels cheap too! As if it were going to snap in half while pushing it and although the steam is visible when you press the button to release it, it doesn't ever get hot enough to actually be effective. Just a low quality product that should be priced at ten dollars not fifty. The pads are expensive too and it is necessary to change them at least once when I do an entire floor cleaning (my place is not big by any means). On a positive note, the cleaning pads smell nice.

The Swiffer steam boost cleaned my old linoleum floor very well! My only complaint is that it left the floor streaked in parts. Has anyone else had this problem?

Rated 3 out of 5 by Mel Cleaning pad need to be better.
When going forward its ok but pulling backwards the stupid thing wants to flip like it sticks or something. If my floors were sticky it would do that going forward but no problem there. Must be in the design because the front comes up when pulling backwards and all the others I have used including plain ole swiffer don't do that. Just got it yesterday but other than that no problem but we will wait and see.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JoJo Good job
I used to have a Shark steamer, but found it was too bulky for me to keep using. The Swiffer Bissell Steamboost is so streamlined! I brought it home and used it on my bathroom floor, which is tile, and it worked great. It did take a while for the floor to dry, but this tile is not smooth--it does have ridges in it. I turned the machine off, pulled the plug and placed it in my kitchen (also covered with the same tile), and found it does not LEAK! Would I buy this product again? You bet--can't beat it for the price!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by AquarianFire Should have grabbed a REAL steam map instead
I was really excited to see that Swiffer and Bissell were teaming up to make an easy steam mop. When I saw it at the store, I was hesitant to purchase for two reasons, the price is a little high for a Swiffer and secondly, it uses pads with chemicals in it. All other steam mops are made so you don't have to use chemicals. I should have listened to my instincts and NOT purchased it. Long story short, I purchased this after my regular Swiffer jet mop leaked product ALL over my closet floors. I got the new steam mop home and it was easy to put together. I was hoping the pads stuck to the mop like the wet jet, but noooo, the pads hook to the steam mop like the regular Swiffer sweeper, where you have to tuck the corners into the top of the mop. Loses a star right there. These pads should be velcroed on or something, as now I had chemical product all over my hands. The cord is nice and long, so that's a plus star. As I was using the stream mop, I noticed that my floors were NOT drying right away. I expect a steam mop to not only be chemical free but to also use water that's so hot, it cleans and dries very quickly. Not with this mop. My floors were a sad, wet mess. While it cleans ok (just ok... a regular mop with just water cleans just as well), the sadness of both the chemicals and "not fast to dry" steam really just makes this thing another regular mop. Don't waste your money on this until Bissel and Swiffer decide to fix it to make it chemical free, with better pads. Otherwise, I suspect your money is better spent on a real steam mop with removable, washable pads that don't use chemicals!

I purchased this at my local Kroger on thr 15th of this month. The hose from the water tank to the pad broke in half after the second use. I took it back to Kroger on the 23rd and got a replacement. I used the new one this morning and the hose on this one broke also. This happened where it bends at the bottom. Has this been a problem for anyone else? I hate to make another trip to replace this one.
