Company Celebrates its Birthday with Tools that Make Floor Cleaning a Cinch

On the eve of its 134th birthday, BISSELL Homecare, Inc., the floor-care innovator and international manufacturer of home-cleaning products, introduces two new products designed to help consumers quickly and efficiently tackle everyday messes: the EasySweep™ cordless rechargeable sweeper and VAC&shine™ hard floor cleaner.

“For nearly 135 years, BISSELL has been creating products to help consumers clean their floors with efficacy and ease,” says Jim Krzeminski, executive vice president and chief customer officer for BISSELL. “With the introduction of these two new cordless cleaners, the company builds on its legacy of floor care innovation. It is most appropriate that we introduce a new sweeper on the anniversary of our first sweeper patent.”

The EasySweep, a battery-powered unit, boasts up to 45 minutes of cleaning time. It comes equipped with a swivel handle that makes it easy to maneuver in tight spots and under furniture. It is lightweight and easy to store, making it an ideal solution when immediate clean-ups are necessary. A powered, rotating brush effectively cleans dirt and debris from bare floors, rugs and low level carpet. Plus, with no cord to bother with, the EasySweep easily glides under furniture, along baseboards and from room to room.

BISSELL’s VAC&shine is a combination dry vacuum and spray mop that offers an all-in-one solution for cleaning crumbs, dirt and grime from hard floors. The vacuum side of the unit’s foot lifts debris from hard floor surfaces and, when flipped, the mop side of the foot dispenses water and formula for wet cleaning. The VAC&Shine is battery powered and runs for approximately 12-15 minutes when fully charged. For added efficiency, the cordless unit is equipped with an easy-to-empty dirt cup and uses washable microfiber pads. It also can be stored with water and formula in its tanks so it’s ready to use when unexpected spills occur.

BISSELL’s EasySweep ($29.99) and VAC&Shine ($59.99) will be available for purchase this fall at In addition, the EasySweep will be launched on the Home Shopping Network. The VAC&shine™ will be available at Bed, Bath and Beyond stores nationwide.
