I am in love! I recently received a Bissell Steam & Sweep to review and I have to tell you, it is now one of my favorite things. One of my most dreaded chores has always been cleaning my kitchen floor. I hate sweeping and mopping. I think it’s mainly due to the fact that as a mom of young ones, it rarely stays clean for very long.
When my BISSELL Steam & Sweep arrived, I was ready to put it to the test. It had been a good two days since I had cleaned my kitchen floors. I know, I know, but it had been a busy week. So, my floors were in need of a good cleaning.
We had eaten pizza for dinner the evening before and I noticed some dried up pizza sauce under our kitchen table. I was happy that it would make for a good test for the BISSELL Steam & Sweep.
The Steam & Sweep required a little bit of assembly, but it was very quick and easy. In no time at all, it was ready to start tackling my kitchen floor. Since my floor was messy, I ran just the sweeper setting first. I was delighted with how well it worked.
My favorite part by far is the swivel head, which moves with ease. I was able to easily navigate under the cabinets and the areas around my dishwasher and refrigerator.
When it was time for the steamer setting, I noticed that it did take a bit more work on my part to push it around, but it was nice to feel the difference between the two settings and to actually feel it working. And that dried up pizza sauce, it came right up!
The mop pads are machine washable, which is wonderful. You should have seen what the pad looked like once I was all done sweeping and steaming. My floors were obviously much dirtier than I thought.
The BISSELL Steam & Sweep leaves floors fresh and dry without the fumes or residue of harsh chemicals, and is safe and effective on virtually all hard floor surfaces, including marble, ceramic, stone, vinyl, laminate, linoleum and sealed hardwood floors.
