Default Ping: Lauren (OT - Steam Mop)

Hi Lauren,

You asked about the Bissell Steam Cleaner, and I promised to let you know
what I think of it after I use it. Well, I'm good at procrastinating, but
I'm on vacation now and finally got around to using it. I bought this
cleaner because it cleans only with water. The instructions specify that
*no* chemicals ar to be used.

Results: It did a pretty good job, and the floor was "almost" dry when I
finished. Certainly, there was *much* less moisture left on the floor than
when I use a conventional mop. It wasn't quite as easy to push around as
the ads show (but then, isn't that always true??), but I liked it enough
that I will continue to use it. My one concern is that is wasn't
particularly easy to attach the mop head, but that may get easier as I get
used to it.

I remember that you mentioned wood floors. As I said in an earlier reply,
the instructions say the mop cleaner can be used on sealed wood floors but
not on unsealed wood floors. My kitchen flooring is vinyl, almost white,
about 9 years old -- and I would say the cleaner did a good job for that
type of condition.

I hope this helps.

MaryL

Thanks so much, Mary. I think none of these products is perfect, but this one
sounds good. The steamer I have doesn't vacuum, it just steams. From what I
can tell, I don't think my wood floors are sealed so I'm hesitant to use it on
the wood floors. But it does a great job on my ceramic tile. But it's like a
canister vacuum cleaner and it sounds like the one you have would be more
convenient. I really like the fact that when I'm done (you know how cats are,
they will immediately walk on a fresh cleaned wet floor), the cats can walk on
it all they want and I don't have to worry about any chemicals on their paws.

Thanks again,
Lauren

Hi Lauren,

Just to make sure it's clear...this one also *does not* vacuum. I used a
dry mop to clean off "loose" dirt (which could also be done by a
light-weight vacuum), then used the steamer to steam clean. In other words,
it takes the place of a wet mop. Like you, I like the fact that there are
no chemicals. Also, it is dry enough that I walked on it immediately after
using it and did not leave any prints.
