Some of you may not know this about me but I have a *thing* for clean floors. For me my house is not clean until the floor is clean. Having said that don’t be surprised to know that I pretty much own a lot of floor cleaning contraptions.
It all started with a floor scrubber I picked up at Target 75% off. I really love that cleaning machine but was not always very happy with the cleaning solution I had to use. That’s why last year I was happy to make the move to a Bissell Steam cleaner and I have never looked back really. I love my steam cleaner! But you know what I don’t love? is having to sweep. I think that’s mostly because my dog sheds like crazy and there is dog hair everywhere.
I think Bissell was listening to my thoughts when they came up with the Steam and Sweep because I was wondering if there was a way I could get my floor clean in one pass. So, yeah, that’s what the Steam and Sweep does. With a sweeper vacuum at the front and the steaming pad in the back, you can set it up to do both jobs at once. I gave it a try on Saturday and I have to say that I was impressed that it picked up the dog hair. I usually sweep with a broom because that has been the only way to pick up the dog hair but this machine picked it up and then cleaned my floor with the steamer. If you just want to sweep, removing the pad is very easy and if you just want to steam the floor, it’s just a matter of pushing a button.
There is one thing I didn’t like though. The Steam and Sweep is not as light as just the plain Bissell Steam cleaner and that’s due to the vacuum addition. After I got done using it my wrist hurt a little from maneuvering it. Also, the vacuum reservoir area is not very big. So if you have a lot ( a LOT) of dirt to vacuum you may have to empty half way.
