    Makes Cleaning Fun!

    This product is my first dive into a power hard floor cleaner. I was a little skeptical at first, but needed something to keep the hardwood looking fresh. When I fired this thing up, I got all excited and didn't want to stop cleaning. I was surprised the battery lasted about 25 minutes and still had juice left. I felt like Kramer test driving the car on Seinfeld!! It took a little practice to get good around the edges, but luckily the swivel ability made for some quick learning. I pretty much felt like I was cleaning a big marble floor with a giant commercial buffer...at least that how I pictured myself. But seriously, I did a light vacuum to suck up the dust then took this Bissell for a spin. Result...the floors looked amazing. The only reason I went 4 stars instead of 5 is because I wish it spun a little faster. The speed of the pads pretty much dictates how fast you can get through the job. They spin fast enough to do a good job cleaning, but after a bit, I wished it had a faster speed. Overall, the item is well built, easy to use, and perfect for a nice polish on the floors.

    I went into this test with trepidation - a battery-powered device with spinning pads and how could something so lightweight clean effectively. I came away very surprised after a week of testing and ownership. This device is so simple to use - charge it up before first use - following directions on mixing cleaning solution - and then clean. What I discovered was that even my "clean" house needed several passes (over several days) to bring my floor to a high level of clean and feel. One use is not going to clean as well as you'd like - it is much like using a robot vacuum - first and second uses will leave you wondering why you paid what you did for the device. The key with this device (and the robot cleaner reference I used), is to live with it and to use it regularly. This device saves time and will leave you WANTING to clean floors. With each use the floor leaves less brown nastiness on the pads and you will start getting the floor to just be a proper clean. Then you can just do weekly or more as you like to maintain (instead of spreading dirt from one place to another). I highly recommend this to people who are busy and/or who hate to do floors. It holds a charge and just makes doing floors nearly effortless. Cleanup of the pads is easy per the instructions and I even found hand washing with laundry detergent and hanging to dry works as well. Two sets of two pads are provided - a "scrubby" one which I used from the outset and a softer one that I now use to maintain the clean which I've achieved.

    Cordless convenience

    About two years ago got the Bissell CrossWave, which is great, but also like the extra convenience of this which is cordless. Although it works a bit differently, both use the same cleaning formulas. This unit came with two sample-size bottles of multi-surface formulas, a set of smooth pads installed and an extra set of'scrubby' pads. It's fairly compact, no assembly required, and lightweight. The pads spin somewhat slowly and so is fairly quiet, a faint whirl, and does not bother others in the house. It takes about four hours to fully charge, and that provides about 30 minutes of runtime, for which I used about the small fill-line in the water/formula container. Ours came with two sample bottles of Multi-Surface formula. Since the floors were relatively dirty, used the multi-surface formula with the'scrubby' pads. It cleaned the hardwood floors well, picking up stuck-on dirt the vacuums couldn't handle. Also used it on shiny ceramic on a bathroom floors. The floors dried up in a few minutes, but it left lots of residue and dull-looking floors. The next day, since the floors were now cleaner but still dull-looking, used the hardwood formula, which we had for the Bissell CrossWave, and this time, it left the hardwood floor back to its normal shine. It's very maneuverable and easy to use when cleaning under the feet of kitchen cabinets and around baseboards, since the pads won't scratch them. The mop has two buttons: And on/off and a spray button. The pads start spinning only after reclining the handle and stop when putting it straight. When pressing the spray button, it also makes a faint chime to remind that it's spraying formula. For storing, it comes with a tray, so storing it with moist pads is not a problem, it also stands on its own, so it's simple to store. The pads can be rinsed with warm water or are machine washable (wash them separately from clothes). Filling up the tank is straightforward: Remove it from the mop by pushing it up. There are no latches nor other pieces that might break. The tank itself is about the size of a sports water bottle. Fill it up with warm/hot tap water to the first mark, add formula to the second mark, close the cap and put it back on the mop, that's it. It has a cap that won't leak until is fully inserted into the mop. To keep in mind, the battery is not replaceable. It would be good to have a formula for hardwoods that would provide more luster. As for the multi-surface formula, consider using less of the formula mixed with the water for less residue on shiny floors, that worked better for me.

    Powered wet mopping

    Seeing my wife use a mop for years on our floors I thought the BISSELL - SpinWave Cordless Powered Mop would make the job so much easier for her. So once I had this unit assembled (you literally snap the handle to the main body, put on the cleaning pads and you are ready to go). You should plug the wireless unit in to charge which takes a few hours as the initial from the factory charge can vary. There are a series of three blue lights that provide a status of the battery charge. Two small containers of multi use cleaner are provided with the unit, mix with water and place in the reservoir on the front of the unit. Once charged you are ready to clean. You can dispense solution on the floor from the unit and it provides a small chime to indicate it was dispensed. My wife used the unit and came to the conclusion that very little solution was needed to clean the floor. Now some of her observations were that if you like the pad cleaner (starts with S ends in R) you will be a fan of this BISSELL SpinWave Cordless Powered Mop. However as I found out, she likes to rinse the mop during use to actually clean the floor and remove dirt. She said that wet pad cleaning solutions are kinda just like spreading around the grime (did not know this prior to getting this unit - my bad). I mentioned to her, this is more of a commentary on her way of cleaning, this unit does what it was designed to do and does it well. She also mentioned that with the tank full of solution it really adds to the weight of this cordless unit. She also said unlike a mop it was difficult to get into tight places (like around a toilet) when using a traditional mop. My observations were the linoleum floor looked clean and shiny after using this unit and our hardwood floors looked fantastic (however be careful to sweep or vacuum up any dirt prior, as the circular motion of the pads could scratch hardwoods if dirt or small rocks get caught up in the pads). However she mentioned that the linoleum floor was a little sticky from the solution (I also thought so), I suspect it would be less so when using less of it. The pads are washable and can be put in a washing machine. A rubber tray is provided so you can place the unit (standing up) on the tray with wet pads. Overall I thought this was a nice addition to our fleet of cleaning devices. Not sure how much she is going to use it though. However I plan on repurposing it to clean my elderly mom's laminate floors. I suspect it will do a wonderful job. Pros: - Wireless, built in 18v rechargeable battery. - cleaning solution provided (use a little at a time) - awesome if you already like wet mopping pad cleaning solutions. Cons: - heavier than expected with solution in the tank (don't fill to the top) - old fashioned rinse and repeat mop fans might not care for it. - solution leaves a sticky residue (at least on linoleum floors). - hard to use in tight place (like near toilets) however it is very maneuverable.
