A friendly consideration suggestion. Google their customer service reviews before buying. A 3 year warantee is worth nothing if the company doesnt honor it. The machine has generally good reviews, but if you need help from the manufacturer, ypu are basically on your own and in for a very frustrating and unpleasant experience. Reviews of thei4 customer service range from 1 star to 3 stars. Most in between 1 and 2 stars. Many many negative experiences. Not my kind of russian roulette.
To be clear. This is a high tech mop meant for hard surfaces and not a rug cleaner?
I bought a cotton string mop from you guys last week. It’s a nice mop. Has a little cleaning strip on the edge and everything.
The Crosswave series is for area rugs and hard surfaces. I got one during the post-Thanksgiving massacre, but ordered directly from the Bissel page. They were offering this exact deal, which was cool. Walmart had one for almost the same price with no additional rollers, etc.
Definitely more of a mop than a rug cleaner but it is meant to clean area rugs as well. If there is a spot on a rug or some debris of some kind, this will clean it up pretty good but not nearly as thorough as a regular vacuum or wet style carpet cleaner.
We have had the corded one for a few years and just bought the cordless version last week. It’s fantastic for light daily cleaning.
I bought one directly from the Bissell site and they were offering this exact deal (much better than retailers). To be clear: this has been my best purchase so far.
First run after purchasing:
I have 2 dogs and a bunch of indoor-only felines. I tend to zip through the laminate and linoleum in the house a few times a week with the Swiffer, but it looks like that’s not working as well as I thought.
This pic was immediately after I had vacuumed with my Dyson pet, and was just the hard surfaces, not the big area rug. I will try that at a later date.
I have to say, wanted to barf when I saw this.
Meanwhile, Jäger is very proud of himself.
It has a pet hair strainer (again, ) inside that mostly works—hair gets caught in the seal behind the scrubbers, which will make the machine leave streaks of dirty water behind, but It’s easy enough to clear with a paper towel.
The entire machine is VERY easy to disassemble, unlike my actual rug cleaner.
Overall, I’m pleased, and the extras package (especially the tray that allows it to clean itself!!!) made it a great deal!
Id order this in a second if I didn’t already own 2 of the corded models.
These things are GREAT! you can’t beat it when you have new puppies in the house and they have an accident on the hardwood, quicker and cleaner than papertowels and spray. It does a great job on regular cleaning as well in between doing the real mop with murphys. It is also fantastic in the kitchen. I use the second one at the martial arts school I own for the mats and the hardwood area.
How would this work around litter boxes? I want something cordless that can easily pick up the small pieces of cat litter that our cats drag out of the box.
If you are using any type of clumping or clay based litter I would advise avoiding anything that brings moisture into the initial cleaning solution. Dry vacuum first then this might be nice. This would likely be ruined by the litter if it could clump or turn pasty.
Does this make sense only for pets, or could it replace, say, a dyson and mopping?
Is it a decent vacuum too?
@ThunderThighs any chance we can get an Asurion option for this item?
It already comes with a 3-year BISSELL warranty. Not sure you can add on to that.
Also looking for this answer. I didn’t get the Shark mop/vac yesterday, but I have a dog and two area rugs. The rest is vinyl, but he sheds a lot.
If you use clumping litter I would use the vacuum only feature (or even a regular vacuum) first to try to get as little of that stuff in there to gum up the works as possible, then you can run the wash and vacuum together to do the full job. I think it would work fine. Actually, I’m going to give that a try myself, as my entire basement landing is litter boxes. Lol
