I spend hours vacuuming every week. Between the kids tracking dirt in the house when they come inside from playing and dropping and stepping on snacks, it’s like a never ending cycle of vacuuming around here. Luckily I have a 14 year old who knows how to vacuum but I still hate how much time out of the day is spent vacuuming. Oh, and to top it off, now that we have a puppy, I spend more time cleaning floors than ever!
We have hardwood floors in our kitchen, foyer, and dining room. These rooms happen to be where we hang out most and “we” includes the dog. Given that, I was so thrilled to get to check out the BISSELL Symphony All in One Vacuum and Steam Mop (available at Best Buy). Not only did I save time by vacuuming and steaming our hard floors at the same time, but I felt good about not having to use harsh chemicals on the floors where the new puppy sleeps and plays.
The Powerful Cyclonic Action vacuum cleans away fine and large debris from tiny crumbs to some pet hair. I wouldn’t advise on using it as your only vacuum if you have a pet though. Not because it doesn’t suck the pet hair up well but because it is not meant to be a pet hair vacuum. Something else I love about this vacuum is that I can steam the floor or I can steam and vacuum at the same time! Talk about a time saver! This is not a wimpy steamer either. The BISSELL Symphony puts out great steam.
As you might know if you are a regular reader, I have issues with my neck and back. Bending is not the most comfortable thing for me to do these days and using the BISSELL Symphony All in One Vacuum and Steam Mop has done wonders for my neck and back since I don’t have to bend down to use the dustpan anymore. I use this vacuum in the bathrooms also. I LOVE knowing that the floors are getting sanitized with steam, using just water to eliminate 99.9% of germs and bacteria! I wear socks even in my own bathroom because I can’t stand the idea of what germs are in there but I feel better about not wearing socks for a couple of days after using the BISSELL Symphony All in One Vacuum and Steam Mop.
The BISSELL Symphony All in One Vacuum and Steam Mop takes about 30 seconds to heat up. Once the indicator light is on you can begin steaming. I noticed that on my first use of the Bissell Symphony, there was a slight delay. The water just needed to flow through the heater. I learned that the delay typically only happens with the first use or when a new filter has been placed in it.
Power through tough spots with two Microban mop pads to choose from—one soft, one for scrubbing. Microfiber mop pads are infused with Microban antimicrobial protection to help fight odor-causing bacteria. To sanitize your floor, including sealed wood floors, by killing germs such as E. coli and salmonella, hold the mop in place for 15-20 seconds.
Can it vacuum and steam at the same time?
Yes! It’s all thanks to an innovative design that utilizes a powerful cyclonic action vacuum to pick up small to large, dry debris off the floor before it comes into contact with our specially designed steam foot. Steam then cuts through grease and grime to clean sticky, stuck-on messes. It wasn’t easy, but that’s why it’s the only product on the market that can vacuum and steam at the same time.
