The Motherloot Blog: Product Reviews

I have confessed before and I will confess again that I am a vacuum junkie. After our recent review of the Shark Vac then Steam, Bissell reached out to me to see if I might be interested in giving the Bissell Steam & Sweep Hard Floor Cleaner a spin.  My original steam cleaner happened to be the original Bissell Steam Mop and  I really loved it so I was excited to see what new features were now made available through this newer model.

As the name implies the Bissell Steam & Sweep offer both the steaming feature and the sweeping feature. What makes this model stand above the rest is that the steam and sweep features that are offered are done simultaneously rather than doing these two activities separately. What could be better than being able to get your floors cleaned & steamed at the same time with one tool?

As always, we offer our pros & cons list with this steam mop!


  • The steam mop pads are easier to the put on then my old Bissell Steam Mop. This model offers Velcro pads that are easy to attach and detach from the steam mop. The model comes with two mop pads and washed up beautifully after using them on my floors.
  • The cord on this model is generous and I can do almost my entire kitchen and hallway using the cord without having to unplug and relocate.
  • The vacuum function on this model does a surprisingly powerful job. The rotating brush brings in hidden debris and was particularly great in hidden corners of my home and the edges of the room where debris is gathered.
  • The tank on this model is generous and enough to easily do two rooms without refilling. There are no extra parts to keep track of for refilling (like funnels and separate pouring containers) which mean you have fewer pieces to keep track of.
  • The biggest pro with this model is the fact that the vacuum and steaming can be done simultaneously. With a flip of the switch you are steaming and sweeping your floors at the same time.  For busy moms, this one feature alone makes it an ideal model for those of us that want clean floors, but don’t have time to drag out two separate vacuums to get the job done.  It does a very impressive job at both functions!


  • As with past models of Bissell steam mops, this Steam & Sweep has a trigger to release the steam. While it offers more control over how much you steam in certain spots, if you are steaming for awhile it can be tiring on your trigger finger having to hold it down to release the steam.
  • The steam mop pads are very thin so the steam does come through at full blast which can get your floors very wet as you get towards the end of your steaming. Because of the thinness of the pads, it also makes it more cumbersome to push when the pads are wet. A thicker pad would definitely remedy this small issue.

Other than these two small gripes, I was really impressed at what an effective job this model does at getting your floors swept and steamed simultaneously. This would make a fantastic holiday gift for any mom that is burdened with the care of tile & hardwood floors.

    I love that this has a removable pad that I can throw in the washing machine. That feature to me alone is worth it because im not constantly running to the store to buy replacements. I also like the fact that I can clean without having to expose my children to any chemicals. My sister in law has one of these and I absolutly LOVE it!

    The floors in my house are hardwood and when the dog comes in from outside dragging in who knows what on his paws it would be great to take care of the mess all at once with the vacuum and steam at one time feature.

    I would totally love to have this product, as it would save me alot of time with my daily cleaning routine. I have 10 & 7 year old sons and a 3 month old daughter along with a dog & cat! This would help me out sooo much, and sounds very convenient & easy to use!

    This sounds really cool. I have always wanted to try the steam cleaner on my hard floors. The swiffer just isn’t cutting it anymore.

    I have a very busy household with kids going in and out and a couple of dogs added into that mix. I also have my grandson staying with me and he is crawling and on the floors all the time. I can’t seem to keep the floors clean enough for any of us to walk around in our socks and not get them dirty. I would love to have one of these so I know that they are as clean as possible when I clean the floors for the little guy.


  26. 76
  27. 77

    What I would love about this is the fact that it multitasks! It can sweep my floor and steam all in one. This would save me a lot of time and backache!


  28. 78

    What a TIME SAVER! My entire house has hard-surface flooring (hard woods and ceramic tile). This would be FANTASTIC!

    I have a bissell wet carpet cleaner, works great. It’s getting harder for me to mop my kitchen floors due to arthritis and knee surgery. It would be fabulous to win a Bissell steam and sweep.

    This would be a great gift for my mother as she has a house that is over half hard floor. I have watched her sweep then mop, but I would like to see her done and enjoying herself.
    Thank you for the information and the opportunity to win and give this to her!

    I would love to have one of these but could never bring myself to justify buying one with expenses of 4 kids. Four busy schedules (husbands a coach, daughter players vball at univ. and two active boys plus son with autism) keeps me moving which I love going to all their activities besides sub-teaching and working retail keeps me busy-busy! This would be a God-send as I to-do the old rag method to get clean!

    I like the idea of this product because I have two larger dogs and rather than having to bring out a broom, mop bucket and mop to clean up the messes they can leave. I also have a young daughter who can spill and track mud from the outside on my floors which I like to keep clean. I think this would a perfect way to clean up all those messes with half the time it would take normally.

    I love that you can vacuum AND steam at the same time. With two messy kids, two big furry “kids” and a hardworking husband, I am constantly scrubbing the floor. This would make it SO much easier and faster to cleanup! Thanks for this offer!

    I liked you on FACEBOOK!


  39. 89

    I have a baby who likes to drop food on the floor and a dog who sheds CONSTANTLY. I struggle to keep up with the sweeping, let alone scrubbing! I would love to be able to suck up that dog hair and clean the floors at the same time!

    The steamer would be a great asset to have , I’m constantly sanitizing the house and mopping the floors, I have 2 boys that love to play on the floor so having this would not only save time but make my “cleaning life” at home much easier!


  44. 94

    As a working grandmother with three wonderful grandchildren I love the fact that I can clean without using any products that leave fumes. It is good on any type floor and does two jobs at once – sweeps and cleans.


  45. 95

    I would love to have one of these. I think it sounds great that the pads are easy to remove, the cord is long, and the tank is large enough for more than one room. This would be great for our new hardwood floor!


  46. 96

    After reading your review if the Bissell Steam & Sweep Hard Floor Cleaner I can say I like everything about it. But sincebi have to pick one I would say the ability to sweep and clean at the same time would be a great time and back saver. If selected winner I would be giving this to my 73 year young Mother. She had hardwood floors that she siffers everyday and mops twice a week. She will be having her right sholder replaced in Decenber and my Father and I will be doing the house work until she is cleared by the doctor. This would come in handy for all of us. Thank you.
