Lightweight steam mop is easy to use and cleans beautifully

I’ve wanted a steamer for hard floors for years and purchased the Wagner 905 1,500-Watt On-Demand Power Steamer and Cleaner. It worked OK, but I wasn’t crazy about it. Although small, the canister proved tedious to drag around and Wagner didn’t make it easy to buy replacement pads. Actually, I’ve never found replacement pads, and had to substitute something else.I resolved that I would replace that Wagner with a stick steam mop by a manufacturer that supports its products with replacement parts, accessories, and supplies a little more. Having had excellent experiences with Bissell, it was a no-brainer to try out the BISSELL Powerfresh Steam Mop, White, 1940.The Bissell 1940 is almost ridiculously simple to use. It is light, easy to push, compact to store, and I can buy supplies for it from Amazon, Bissell, or a variety of other local and online stores.My home has linoleum in the kitchen, dining room, and two bathrooms. Although the water reservoir seems small, I was able to do all of these rooms with only two fill ups, with a little water left over. I also used quite a bit more steam in some areas.The mop comes with two pads, one that is smooth and another with treads that help clean more stubborn spots. I used the one with treads and was very pleased. The mop also has a scrub brush that can be easily flipped down with your foot to tackle stuck on dirt.When you plug it in, the mop turns on. It doesn’t emit steam, however, until you choose your steam setting (there are three settings.) This mop is ready to go within 30 seconds of plugging it in.Removing the mop pads and putting them on is very easy, as is slipping a scent disk in the pocket inside the pad. The scent disks aren’t necessary for cleaning, but they do emit a wonderful, fresh aroma that I quite enjoyed.When you finish mopping, the pad can be washed in your washing machine and then air dried, reducing cost by allowing you to reuse the pads until they wear out.I was worried when I began that this mop would have trouble in smaller areas such as between the commode and the wall, but it worked almost as well sideways as it did normally.Also, I was very happy to find that the water reservoir remains pretty cool, making it easy to refill when I ran out of water without having to wait for it to completely cool down. Of course, you should always exercise caution when working with hot steam, but Bissell did a very good job designing this to help reduce the possibility of accidents with this task.After using it, my floors look and feel very nice and clean. They dried quickly and left no sticky residue behind. I cannot praise this steam mop enough. It lived up to all my expectations. Link to purchase this!
