    WOW! This steam cleaner is incredible!

    I have never written a review before. That I am writing a review for this product speaks volumes to the quality product that it is. I'll admit I didn't really want the steam cleaner, my husband did. I found his interest in a new floor cleaner a little perplexing because he doesn't do any of the cleaning. He stated he might be willing to clean the floors if we had the steam cleaner. I didn't really think this would be the case but for $99 I gave him the thumbs up to purchase the steam cleaner. Last night, we decided to try our hand at using the steam cleaner to clean the grout in the tile. We recently purchased an existing home and the tile grout is dark in our high traffic areas. Prior hand cleaning didn't improve the grout color much and it was hard work. I cleaned an area of the grout with the steam cleaner and could not have been more impressed. What a significant improvement! My husband came over and said, "WHAT! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT. LOOK AT IT! I am awesome and your welcome because I am the one that wanted the steam cleaner." LOL! We spend the rest of the evening and next morning literally fighting over who was going to clean the grout. It is easy and actually fun because it is so gratifying to see it so clean. I am about as skeptical as they come when it comes to products and claims about what they can do. We did consider a couple other floor cleaners before we made this purchase. We did not know if a steam cleaner was the way to go and I'll admit I was concerned about using it on our hardwood floors. After one steam clean our tile and hardwood floors look amazing. I hope this review is helpful to you as you consider whether you want to purchase this steam cleaner. I promise you that you will not be disappointed and in fact will likely find yourself recommending this steam cleaner to everyone you know.

    Nice design and function

    I purchased this mop yesterday and have used it on the tile in my foyer, kitchen, dining room and bathroom. I cannot comment as to longevity, but I CAN say I am very pleased with the overall design and function. The rectangular(ish) mophead with the pad that wraps around a bit enabled me to steam all the way into the corners and right up to the baseboards and toe kick tile. That was important to me. I vacuumed first (I thought thoroughly) but in some areas, especially my bathroom which gets very dusty, the residual dust got pushed by the mop head rather than picked up by the pad. To clarify, it only happened in some spots. So I would say it effectively sanitizes and removes spots/stains, but doesn't trap larger particles of dust or debris. That's what my vacuum is for so that is not a deal breaker, I just did a quick wipe down of that section before I moved on. I like the size of the mop head because it is flat enough to get under the edges of my appliances and cabinets, and narrow enough to get around the toilet but still big enough to get the job done expeditiously. I was, actually, pleasantly surprised by how well the scrubbing feature works. To be honest, I didn't expect it to really clean the grout. But, it did, with very little effort on my part, clean my grout. That being said, I have been a clean-floor-on-my-knees kind of cleaner usually so my floor was not too bad. But I could actually see the dirt being lifted from the grout ( hope it wasn't the grout itself). I like the fact that I can stand the mop up, and it will stay upright if I have to move something out of the way. I do think it balances a little precariously though. One caveat for me, something I should have known but didn't, is when you use the scrubbing section, the directions say to turn off the steam before and after. This makes sense since you don't want to burn yourself. I did not turn it off before I dislodged the mop head because I just hit the lever to detach and did not perceive any danger of coming in contact with the steam; But afterward is where it gets tricky. Very difficult to reattach while steam is still being produced. I did manage to do so but obviously not without risk. Next time I will just follow the directions and turn off the steam before reattaching the mop head. Both my husband and I love the fresh scent of the discs, another pleasant surprise because that was not a big selling point for me. Very happy with this purchase - now just hope it lasts.

    Love this steam mop! I read the reviews on several different ones and decided on this one. I have laminate wood floors that have a glossy shine to them. I remember the salesperson telling me if I had pets or kids I might want to rethink buying a glossy floor product. Well, with pets he was right. Paw prints everywhere. Always having to use a mop with a microfiber pad cleaning and buying expensive cleaning products. Then the cat got a UTI. All I could smell was cat urine. That was the breaking point. I went and bought the steam mop. Only my bedroom has carpet in it. I can clean every floor with this mop. My glossy laminate floors look amazing after using this! The smell is completely gone. The steamer is easy to use. Just pour in some distilled water, wait about 30 seconds, and it is ready to go. It glides smoothly and the the mop head turns. The first couple of times it did seem to streak the floors. I read another post where someone else said the same thing and that is was just a build up of other cleaning products. After using it twice I don't have that problem. Floors look great. Got it on sale for $80. Definitely worth the investment.

    I was swimming in regret over the Armstrong luxury vinyl floor we had selected last summer. Not that the floor wasn't beautiful, but the light colored tiles trapped endless amounts of dirt in the crevices, and do NOT get me started on why pale grout was a huge mistake, especially on a large area. I was spending too many hours a week scrubbing both (often on my hands and knees), and still saw the annoying black spots in my tiles. This miraculous little device removes ALL of the shadows and black spots, leaving my tiles as beautifully clean as they were when we had them installed. It even cleans GROUT, for crying out loud! It does take some time to cover the entire floor with both the pad and the grout brush, but very little effort. The floor even feels far cleaner when we step on it barefoot. Bissell, if you ever decide to produce a cordless version of this cleaner, you may just rule the world!

    Got this on Tuesday, tried it on Wednesday, and returned it on Thursday! I purchased this to replace a HAAN floor steamer that I have had for years. I chose this one because it was so highly rated...but I would give it a HALF a star if I could. It's a nice looking machine, and seems to be well built, but it leaves the floor VERY WET, and they take a long time to dry. My house has nothing but ceramic tile, and I loved the thought of sanitizing and getting a "fresh smell" from the fragrance discs at the same time. The fragrance did NOT get passed through the steam, and did not make to the wet floors. Once the floors finally did dry, you could still see marks (dirt) left behind! I expected so much more from a name like Bissell, but it does not live up to the hype. My suggestion is to get a Haan, and you will not be disappointed!

    Decent Cleaner, Easy to Break

    Moved into a home with floors that will be replaced, but needed deep cleaning in the meantime. While using the scrub brush, a piece holding it onto the the main unit with a spring broke on the second use. I can still use it as long as I don’t pick it up. But with the scrubber it did remove a lot of gunk. Not as good without the scrubber for gunky floors. (Hopefully you’ll only have gunky floors once!) I used the highest steam setting so this may be the the cause, but there was water marks left on my wood floors. (Different floors) Very noticeable with the sun coming in the windows. Haven't yet tried it with less steam. But for a quick steam clean, it’s a good little machine. Just wish it would hold together better.

    Nice Floor Steamer

    This was purchased as a replacement for my old Haan floor steamer (so old they don't make this model any longer). After reading reviews of what was available, I decided to take a chance on this one. It is very easy to use and does a pretty good job. I especially like the option to remove the base by just stepping on a lever and then using the built-in scrub brush to clean the grout. I made the mistake of trying this in the middle of the room (I really didn't expect it to work that well), but it looked like new grout again! Now I work on a small section every time that I steam the floors. The only complaint that I have is that the mop head cloths get too wet if I let it sit between rooms. I have found a workaround by vacuuming the floors first and using the low steam setting unless I hit a really dirty place. I really do like it for the price, though.

    In retrospect - I've realized that in my 61 years - other than the house I grew up in (linoleum floors) that I've never lived 15+ years anywhere...so I was fooling myself that when we built the home we used a darker grout. OH NO! I called to see what it would cost to have it professionally done and kitchen alone was over $300. I read the reviews and decided to give it a go. I was TRULY AMAZED. Now it isn't a panacea miracle cure nor is it quick to fix if your grout is as bad as mine was...however I would say that after about 4 hours of work (not much on hands and knees) the steam mop has removed at least 85% of my yucky grout dirt...seriously it was SHOCKING! By the time I finish my house, I might wear it out - but it was easy, reasonably priced (think how much I'd have to pay to do the entire home!!!) and that grout cleaner is the BOMB! Thank you Bissell!

    This mop is pretty impressive. We had a Shark that was giving out so I got this Bissell for my mom for Christmas. The mop pays for itself after 1 use. It completely cleans grout and the pad was completely brown when we first tried it from all the dirt the Shark wasn’t picking up. Our grout has remained clean since we first cleaned them with this mop. Really picks up dirt rather than just swishing it around. We hand scrubbed our grout when we first moved in and thought the floor was clean. Turns out the grout is a lot lighter than we thought.

    I'm highly impressed with this steamer. I was going to go with the battery operated model, but since that wasn't a steamer and just a floor cleaner, I went with this one instead. I'm glad I did. I used this last week on my bathroom tile floors and they have never been cleaner. I had a Shark before, but my ex took that in the divorce (we are still very good friends and I insisted she take whatever she needed). I love the fresh scent pads, as they are not too overwhelming and just give a subtle hint of cleanliness. The steamer heats up pretty quickly. I just plugged it in 5 minutes before cleaning the floors, and let it warm up while I was cleaning other areas. A great, cost-effective steamer!

    The steam mop you’ve been looking for

    When our Shark Mop stopped working after one month of use (you read that correctly) we decided to rethink our steam mop decision. I’m glad we did. This is a solid built unit with all the features you need and will clean your floors extremely well. You only have 2 settings (high and low) but really, you don’t need more. Once the mop has heated up, you can actually see the steam in the head of the mop, so you can tell it’s working. The best feature is the brush at the end, which allows you to scrub hard-to-get spots without having to bend over. The scent disc is the crowning touch. You can actually smell the discs while you mop. The smell doesn’t linger for long, but it does make you feel like your floors are getting extra clean.

    Great for steam cleaning floors NOT cleaning grout

    I received my unit the same day using Best Buy delivery (wonderful service). I was looking for a steamer that also cleaned grout, I thought this was it. Once I open the box the water reservoir had water in it, I though the unit was suppose to be new not used. I did try it out & to my surprise it was a great steamer. I was happy with the way my tile floors look after the cleaning. The grout brush attachment however is a waste of being on the unit. It made puddles of water on the floor & took 15 minutes to go over a line about the length of an ink pen, it was also very uncomfortable to get the brushes in the grout. Other than the grout brush it is a great steamer for your floors! This will be going back, I will look for a Bissell without the grout brush attached.

    I originally bought this just to sanitize my kitchen and bathroom tile. While in the kitchen, I took the pad part off to slightly scrub a spot. Well...the brush scrubbed the grout, and OMG! I ended up cleaning all the grout in my kitchen and entry way. I’ll eventually get to the hallway and bathrooms. Best $100 I’ve spent in a long time! Before and after pics attached. I had no idea my kids and husband were this hard on floors!

    Steam Mop Met Expectations

    I needed a steam mop to easily mop the laminate and tiles throughout my house. The mop was straightforward to put together and use for the first time. Be sure to use the correct type of water to maximize results. Also, the mop pad doesn't hold dust that well so it is imperative to sweep the floor well in advance. The spotboost brush came in handy for a few tough stains but it isn't great...just good. I was tempted to move the mop quickly to get the job done, but I noticed that it was more effective if you allowed the steam enough time to do what it is supposed to. Overall it is a good steam mop and I am happy with it's performance.

    This is my first steam mop but I think its the best thing since sliced bread.I just moved into a new home and started to clean the place. I couldn't believe the difference it made in the kitchen. I thought the grout in the kitchen was gray, but after cleaning with this we realized it was actually beige (grooooooss!!!) I love that this cleans with out chemicals, my dog has skin allergies and everything messes with her. Since cleaning with the steam mop we have had no problems. Most of my house is tile so I have a lot of grout to keep clean and the scrub brush on this model is perfect for that. I have been using this for a month now about twice a week and it works great so far.

    I have never used a steam mop, but I recently put up new tiles on my apt and decided to invest in one to see if it was as good as people say it was. I now think that my floor is never completely clean until I use the steam mop to clean it. The only complaint keeping me from a 5-star review is that it is a little heavy and somehow I though it would glide easily over the tiles and it does not. It takes a bit of an effort to make move it all over the floor. But it does its job well. I use it everywhere including the bathroom, and specially the kitchen area.

    This is my first Bissell steam mop. It has a lot going for it: you don't have to wait a long time for it to be ready, the flat mophead design is ideal for mopping under cabinets, etc. and it doesn't use a lot of water. I wish the cord was a tad longer but it wasn't a deal breaker. Keep in mind that there is no steam button so you can't apply more steam, but it's such a good mop that I've not missed the feature. It also has no power switch; plugging and unplugging it is the only way to power it on/off.

    Had to buy this because our last Bissell Team Mop stopped working in less than a year. For some reason water kept coming out the overflow area on the back of the mop. Even took it apart to see the problem but it didn’t fix it. So ended up buying another because when these mops work they work very well! What I like about this model is that the mop part actually can come completely off unlike the previous model I had. This makes great if u want to steam specific a area your home! I use it specifically for grout and the grime comes right off! Our grout in our tiles look extremely clean without harsh chemicals!

    At first blush, I thought this dinky thing couldn't do squat to clean up after "The Beast" (our two-year old) and her four older sibs. I couldn't have been more wrong. This lightweight, easy to use cleaner plows through dried on whatever-the-heck-that-was on our kitchen tile floor. Sometimes the goo has festered for a couple weeks before we get to do a good cleaning, but the mop head detaches for a scrub brush on the more stubborn ick. What used to take hours of hard scrubbing with Swiffer Wet pads takes minutes to clean with this amazing steam mop.

    I live in Santa Fe, NM and dust is a way of life. I have three dogs and tile floors, and even though I run a bare floor vacuum often, there is still fine dust left behind. I will run the steam mop and the floors are great and dry instantly. I bought extra pads so I change them two or three times while cleaning depending on how dirty the floor is. My house is about 2000 sq ft, and generally one tank of water does it all. The cord lenght is reasonable. The unit heats quickly, and has two steam settings. The lift off scrub brush is great for tile grout. I will never wet mop again!
