Every once in a while, I find a product that I love so much that I simply HAVE to share it with you! Some of the most recent examples include my posts about the knee pillow that solved my back pain, my bottomless appetite for Audible audiobooks, and my favorite set of food storage containers. I don’t share just any product though—I try to only share high-quality products that have genuinely improved some aspect of my life. And I’ll be sharing another product with you today that happens to fit that description perfectly!
Today we’ll be talking about my new favorite cleaning tool: the Bissell PowerFresh Steam Mop. I originally bought this mop shortly after we had tile floors installed in the kitchen. The mop we had at the time didn’t work very well, and it didn’t help that I hated mopping in general. But I was determined to keep the new tile looking nice! So after doing some research online, I suspected that a steam mop might be a good solution. I browsed through all the steam mops Amazon had to offer, and finally settled on the Bissell PowerFresh model.
When it arrived, I eagerly gave it a try on both the tile in the kitchen and the hard floors in the living room. I was stunned by how well it worked, and by how easy it was to use! Not only did it confirm that steam cleaning was indeed a great method to use on hard floors, but there were things I loved about the specific model I had purchased too. So let’s dive in to both categories!
Why Choose A Steam Mop?
The biggest thing that attracted me to steam mops over other kinds of mops is that there’s no mess involved! You don’t have to deal with a bucket of water or wringing out a dirty mop head.
I also liked the idea of cleaning without chemicals. The steam produced by the mop kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria, leaving your floors clean and your home healthier!
And last but not least, steam mops just WORK. They’re extremely effective at cleaning hard floors like linoleum, tile, laminate, stone, and more. Even stubborn messes don’t stand a chance—just hold the steam mop over the mess for a few seconds and it’ll melt away in a flash!
6 Great Things About The Bissell PowerFresh Steam Mop
#1: This steam mop comes with reusable microfiber pads that trap all the dirt and grime from your floors. Once you’re done mopping, you can just toss the pads into your washing machine to clean them.
#2: The mop also comes with fragrance disks that smell lovely! You just pop the disks into the microfiber pad before putting it on the mop. Then as you mop, the steam leaves behind a fresh and clean scent that isn’t overpowering.
#3: The back of the mop has a flip-down scrubber attachment that is really useful too. If you’re cleaning a tough or sticky mess, flip down the scrubber to help power through it.
#4: This steam mop also has three different steam levels to choose from. For everyday cleanups, the lightest steam setting works well and dries quickly. For tougher messes or dirtier floors, the heaviest steam setting will leave your floors sparkling.
#5: And for those days when you want to ensure that your floors are extra clean, I like to use vinegar in conjunction with the steam mop. I just spray white vinegar over the floor with a spray bottle, then mop the area with my steam mop. It works like a charm!
#6: The last thing I’ll mention about this mop is that the Carpet Glider attachment is fantastic. I had to buy it separately, but I’m so glad I did! You just pop the Carpet Glider onto the mop, and it raises the mop enough that you can use it over carpet.
It won’t clean carpet or rugs, but it definitely helps to refresh and deodorize them. I use this handy attachment frequently to freshen up the rug under our dining table!
The Bissell PowerFresh Steam Mop has made cleaning my kitchen and living room floors SO much easier. I used to avoid mopping because it was such an ordeal, but now I eagerly pull out my steam mop to clean up everyday messes! If you’re in the market for a new mop, or a better way to clean your floors in general, I think you’ll like this one as much as I do. :-) Check it out on Amazon here.
