Shorten Your Cleaning Time with Bissell Steam and Sweep

Cleaning hardwood, linoleum, and tile floors used to be tricky and involve several steps.

First, you had to sweep your hard surface floor, sometimes twice and chase the pile of dirt around with your brush and dustpan trying to catch what your broom had left behind.

Then you needed to fill a bucket with the hottest tap water you could get from your kitchen faucet and find it got cold by the time you added the cleaning solution and dipped in the mop to start cleaning.

Even if you wore kitchen gloves, it was still a sloppy endeavor and the chemicals would irritate eyes and skin.

The only upside to cleaning the floors step by step manually is the amount of calories you burn.

According to Live Healthy, you can burn quite a few calories sweeping and mopping your grandma’s way; however, who has the time and patience for that? There are much more fun ways to burn calories than swabbing the deck like an old fashioned sailor.

Fortunately, there are many new products on the market that have made that job, if not pleasurable, a bit less cumbersome.

Wikipedia defines steam mops as cleaning tools that use steam to clean floors in place of detergents.

Having the water at such high temperature, disinfects and polishes the surface of hardwood, tile, or laminate.

These devices are great for high traffic areas and/or households with children and pets so that the floor can be sanitized with heat, not harsh chemicals.

One amazing fairly new invention is the Bissell Steam and Sweep, an ingenious device that not only picks up crumbs and debris from your hard surface floors, but employs the power of steam mopping to get your floors shiny clean.

This product combines the power of an electric sweeper with a steam mop in one handy tool.

A review from Good Housekeeping notes that although its productivity as a steam mop outweighs its effectiveness in removing debris as a sweeper, its long tank time (average 20 minutes) and 28 foot cord makes it a powerful cleaning tool.

Features include a heat ready light and a warm up time of only 30 seconds.

It’s lightweight at 9.5 pounds, so it’s easy to navigate and push.

Storage is easy as well, as it can replace all of those smelly mops that fill your closet with the reek of mildew.

The one- step process by the Bissell Steam and Sweep might work well for light traffic areas, and it only takes a few minutes to do a quick vacuum of your hardwood high traffic areas before you steam and sweep.

Products like the Bissell Steam and Sweep cost more than a regular broom and mop; however, the time you will save and the quality of clean they provide pays for itself in convenience.

Bissell is the best selling producer of floor care products in North America and holds 20% of the market share.

As a trusted brand, it’s no surprise that they have developed such innovative cleaning products.

The Bissell Steam and Sweep is available online as well as through your local retailer.
