Rated 5 out of 5 by BoroBrown BISSELL® Symphony™ All-in-One Vacuum and Steam Mop
This product is by FAR the best thing since sliced bread. It cuts cleaning time by at least 75-80%. It is like sweeping and moping at the same time. If I could afford to do it i would buy one for all of my close friends and family.
I have been using the Symphony for a little over 5 months now, and the floors stay clean. with my elderly mother living with me and having a toddler i knew it was important to keep things extra clean, and this has helped me do just that!
If you are on the fence about this product... JUST DO IT! you won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DebM this thing is awesome
I just cleaned and disinfected my whole house in under an hour. It usually takes much backbreaking work of handscrubbing the tile floors before I can clean/wax with a swifter because that just moves the dirt around.
Simultaneously steaming to disinfect and vacuuming to remove released ickiness is exactly what I've been wanting to be able to do for years....
Being able to also steam/vacuum the hardwood is a huge help. If it would let me steam/vacuum the area rugs, that would wonderful :)
With 3 dogs and a cat, plus living on a small horse farm where I'm bound to drag in dust/dirt/horse hair (and etc!!)/grass clippings/and whatever after chores, the Symphony is going to save me hours and hours of cleaning time and let me do quick touchups daily so things don't get out of control with all these animals.
I bought a bottle of the pet odor disinfectant and that has seemed to make things much fresher.
It would be great if you can come up with some edging tools - or even a smaller version of this unit that would work along baseboards, but that is the only improvement I can think of and a workaround that is really no big deal.
I posted about how great it is on Facebook so all my friends (most of whom also have indoor pets and horses) will know that this may be the solution they need, too. Feel free to send me my bonus check when your sales increase, ha ha!

I really loved this steam mop/vac and then it randomly stopped steaming after 5 months. Tried all the trouble shooting but it still wont work. Such a shame bc I really love this machine!

Rated 4 out of 5 by writerwithin Half the work some of the time
My initial response was awesome. I still like how the system does two things at once. I can vacuum, steam light and/or steam heavy. When rushed the two for one is great.
I found two flaws with the machine. One, it doesn't do corners well. When steaming and actually cleaning, not getting the corners is noticeable. The machine also does not get under furniture. I wish I had a thinner attachment for the steaming and vacuuming.
The second flaw is the vacuum portion is not that strong and the mop pushes dog hair out of vacuum range when its caught behind the mop. It takes a little extra work to sometimes lift the machine to get around floating dog hair. Maybe they can add some suction to the back side. But lifting and moving it around is worth the effort.
Overall I love the idea of being able to steam clean the floors every time I vacuum. I think its a great addition to my arsenal and I'm heading back to Bissell to find more good ideas. I'm also hoping the read the reviews and also work on the flaws. I am definitely a Symphony fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dgivens Ingenius and Revolutionary Product
I've written about 5 product reviews in my lifetime so this product has to be unbelievably good for me to take the time and write about it. This machine is absolutely amazing to say the least. I hate walking barefoot but since using this machine my wood and tile floors feel so clean while walking on them. Humans every so often come up with ingenious products and Bissell has come up with one. Saves so much time now that i can mop and vacuum at the same time and it works as stated. You will not be disappointed. Trust me. I've also purchased one of Bissell's carpet cleaners which I must say is equally impressive. Bissell I'm a customer for life! You guys keep making great quality American products! :-D

Rated 5 out of 5 by Missc4 In LOVE with the Symphony
The Symphony is simply amazing. I own a shark steam mop and really thought I was getting my floors clean but the Symphony out cleaned the shark hands down.My floors not only look clean they feel clean. No more bleaching socks in my house. Works great on cat litter and cat hair. I have dark hard wood floors and a white cat , the symphony sucks up all that hair with ease.. I no longer feel the need to cover my hardwood floors with rugs now. I love that I can rug over the rugs and then put the mop on and I am mopping the floor. l can not stress how much I LOVE the symphony. Having a grandson who was born with HLHS has me wanting every thing super clean and I am able to feel like my house is cleaner thanks to the Symphony.
