Bissell Symphony Pet
For Mopping and Vacuuming
If you seek a multifunctional device that can help keep your floors squeaky clean without harsh rubbing, the Bissell Symphony cleaner will definitely catch your fancy. This feature-packed tool combines the functionality of a steam mop and a vacuum cleaner, which makes it suitable for just about every household, including big households with pets.
Starting off with the unit power, this steam mop operates at 1100 Watts, so it gets hot relatively quickly and efficiently removes dirt and other messes from all sorts of floorings. The steam softens up dry stains and effortlessly gets rid of filth without scrubbing or any excess elbow grease on your side.
As for the width of the mop, it is a tad smaller (11 inches) as compared to its counterparts. However, it is not a bad thing. What this means is that the vac can neatly get into narrow spaces to thoroughly clean there as well. You'll also have several pads for the mop included in a set - microfiber soft and scrubby pads and Bissel Steam boost disposable pads, which will help you tackle minor stains and some tougher contaminations without a hassle.
When it comes to vacuuming, this appliance is no slouch either. At 400 watts of suction power, it is pretty efficient at picking up dust, dirt, and pet hairs from hard floors around the house as well as from soft coatings.
Additionally, this floor steamer has a well-designed Drop-It Tank emptying system that allows you to quickly discard wastes and debris from the tank. And the Dry Tank technology ensures all the dust stays dry in there without getting wet and messing up the whole reservoir.
Suitable for Larger Areas
What makes this cleaner suitable for cleaning larger areas is that the unit comes complete with a long 25-ft power cable. You won’t need to constantly switch the outlets or use an extension cord to clean in remote corners of your home. Plus, the capacity of the water tank is pretty decent, too. It can fit up to 12.8 fl. oz. and work for quite a while before you need to refill it. Just remember to hold the mop upright when cleaning to prevent the reservoir from leaking.
The other cool thing about this model is that the company supports Pet Foundation, so, the part of the money from the purchase goes for a noble cause, that is, finding loving families for homeless animals.
The manufacturer also recommends using demineralized water with this steam mop. It helps achieve better cleaning results and leaves a pleasant smell after use. There are three options available: Citrus, Eucalyptus Mint, and Spring Breeze.
Summing up, the Bissell Symphony can help you not only mop but also vacuum your household. It is powerful enough to remove different kinds of dirt, debris, and pet hair from all types of soft and hard flooring.

Compact and Powerful
The Bissel company offers various household appliances designed to make cleaning easier and meant to fit all cleaning and budget needs. So, if you want to spare yourself from tiresome mopping but you are on a shoestring budget, check out the Bissel PowerFresh steam cleaner. It is an affordable model that offers pretty much the same functionality as its more expensive counterparts.
First and foremost, the floor steamer is impressively powerful, hosting 1500 watts. It heats up water for cleaning almost in an instant and gets ready for work in just about 30 seconds. Speaking of the water tank, it lacks capacity a bit. Since it holds only 10 fl. oz. of water, you might need to refill it a few times when cleaning larger areas and open spaces. On the bright side, a smaller tank means a much lighter overall tool weight and more compact dimensions. Hence, at 14 x 9.5 x 46.5 inches and 6.4 pounds, you can move it from one place to another and carry it around with ease. The tool handle is ergonomically shaped and provides a comfy and firm grip.
To proceed, this handheld model has a hefty 13-inch mop that will let you clean a pretty decent area per one stroke. To make cleaning even more convenient, the manufacturer has also equipped this device with a long power cord. And to ensure you can achieve the best results, they've also fitted it with a smooth steam flow adjustment button.
The cleaner is able to destroy up to 99.9% of germs and bacteria with just the power of steam. Thus, you don’t need to use any chemical detergents for hygienic cleaning. It is safe to use on hardwood floors, marble, granite, ceramic, and linoleum surfaces alike.
An All-in-one House Assistant
In addition to a compact design and powerful performance, this Bissel cleaner also boasts impressive functionality, able to easily replace several household appliances. Apart from a floor mop attachment, the set includes two bristle scrub brushes that can be used for cleaning sinks, ovens, microwaves, and even baking trays. A flat scraper tool can be used for that task as well. Further on, you get a grout attachment that will help you get rid of dirt in between the tiles and an angle tool that will be able to reach tighter hard-to-get spaces. Also included are a special attachment for flat open areas and a clothing steamer tool. The latter will come in especially handy when you have no time to spend on ironing clothes as it can quickly de-wrinkle clothes, curtains, and smoothen upholstery while deep steaming surfaces to remove germs from the fabric.
In conclusion, the Bissel PowerFresh Steam Cleaner is a multi-tasking household appliance that comes at a pretty reasonable price. It can tackle a whole number of daily tasks without hitting your budget too much. Plus, it has a quite long 2-year warranty, so you can be sure the unit will serve you for long.

Get the Job Done From the First Time
The best thing about most steam cleaners is that they remove the toughest dirt from the surface after a single pass. That is to say, you won’t have to scrub the floor twice or more to make it clean. The S5003D Shark steam mop is the best proof of that. It is made to save users’ time on cleaning so that they have more time for themselves.
So, what does this model offer? Actually, a lot! Not only can you mop hardwood, laminate, or marble floors with this mop, you can also freshen your carpets and rugs, sanitize your furniture, grills, toilets, etc. In other words, there are very few things that this steamer couldn’t clean. Such efficiency is achieved thanks to the Shark’s innovative mop head design and microfiber pads that catch almost any dirt, old or new, at once. Like many other latest steam mops produced by this company, the S5003D comes equipped with the genius mop head that makes the replacing of mop pads a hassle-free process.
This model also features steam blaster technology that we’ve loved so much. The mop head is designed with steam channels that spread the steam evenly throughout the mop so that you could clean from both sides of the pad just by flipping it. And if you need to apply more steam on a tough spill that has already dried out, you can use the steam blaster located behind the mop body beneath the handle. It blows steam directly on a dirty spot to soften and remove it entirely.
Dust, Mop, Scrub
Aiming to save your nerves, time, and your floor from damage, Shark engineers have equipped this mop with the steam control function. It includes 3 modes: LOW, MED, and HI.
The LOW mode is great for light cleaning and dusting because the temperature of the steam is rather low. So if you need to remove light dirt from hardwood or laminate which is more sensitive to high temperatures than stone, etc., this mode will be absolutely safe for your floors.
MED setting is for harder tasks and sealed surfaces. It is also suitable for everyday cleaning, sticky spills, and different small messes.
As for the HI setting, it's designed for tough and deep cleaning. This mode can help you deal with the most stubborn dirt and grime.
Finally, talking about the usability of this mop, we can’t avoid mentioning its water container. The best thing about it is that you don’t have to wait until the mop cools down - you can add water while mopping, whenever you need it. Undoubtedly, with this Shark steam blaster, keeping your home tidy will be a pleasure.

What Is a Floor Steamer?
Though floor steamers are relatively new appliances on the market they've already revolutionized the process of house cleaning and become a favorite tool for many users. As the name suggests, these cleaning appliances are designed to remove stains, dust, and dirt by generating steam. Contrary to the common myth that steam cleaners can be used only on wooden and tiled floors, a lot of them can be applied on other surfaces seeing that they include special attachments. Thanks to the produced heat, floor steamers can not only effectively remove stains and ingrained dirt saving you time and effort but also kill up to 99.9% germs, bacteria, and parasites. However, the biggest advantage is that they don't require any chemical products, which makes them a safe choice for consumers who have kids and pets. For this article, we've picked five of the most popular floor steamers so you can choose the one that fits all your needs.
In case you're interested in purchasing a smaller hoover for quick cleanups, you're more than welcome to read our reviews of five best handheld steam vacuum cleaners.
What Features to Compare
Before buying a steam mop, there are a few important characteristics to pay attention to. One of them is design. A floor vacuum cleaner, just like a handheld cleaner, should be convenient to hold and operate. As a rule, it has a long ergonomic handle, a cleaning unit, and a cloth mop pad. The cleaning unit includes a steam generator, a water tank, and control elements. Though floor cleaners look rather bulky, operating them is easy and requires no special effort. They have long power cords and you can freely move them around. Just like most modern vacuum cleaners, floor steamers come in different sizes, designs, and colors, so everyone can choose the one to their liking.
This is probably the most important characteristic to check for. The power of the floor steamer is directly linked with its voltage: the higher the voltage is, the more powerful the vacuum cleaner is. You should also make sure the chosen floor cleaner has a steam regulator so you have an option to adjust steam levels when cleaning different types of floors. All additional attachments that come included with a floor steamer affect its performance as well, broadening or narrowing its scope of application. Check what mop pads come included with a cleaner and make sure that they can be used on your floors. Along with additional attachments and voltage, performance of the cleaner is affected by its water tank capacity. This reservoir should be integrated so that the cleaner wouldn't leak while in use, and be big enough to allow for prolonged cleaning. That being said, with a bigger water chamber increases the weight of the cleaner which is why it's better to opt for "a golden mean" - something big enough to do a good job of cleaning, but lightweight enough to not tire your arms.
Many floor steamers include such additional features as "lift-away" and "lift-off", which make it possible to use the cleaner with or without the mop head or wand. This gives you the advantage of using it in a handheld mode, in which you can attach a different set of nozzles and clean other surfaces like countertops, kitchen appliances, and many more. The length of a power cord, as we've mentioned earlier, is as important in terms of convenience as all other additional quirks. A long cable will let you clean rather big areas without extensions cords. Finally, make sure the model you choose includes some additional attachments. Most modern models will come with a special scrubbing attachment or mop pad for cleaning tiles. All these features are important and greatly affect the convenience of use.
Did you know?
The idea to use steam for cleaning purposes appeared about 150 years ago. Originally, this method was used to remove grease and dirt from various kinds of machinery, cars, trucks, railways and ships. However, it was only 70 years ago that people took this idea more seriously and started thinking about how to make a steam cleaner. Italian engineers were the first ones who presented steam generating appliances to the world. At the time, not all countries could use them. Because of the difference between the voltage in the USA and Europe, steam cleaners entered the US market only 30 years later after their appearance. Today, steam cleaners are all the rage. They become more and more popular with users from all over the world. Steam cleaners quite literally revolutionized the process of cleaning allowing people to spend less time cleaning and use no chemicals at all. That's one of the biggest reasons why they are so popular. Another reason is that steam cleaners are very versatile. Due to many additional attachments they usually include, steam cleaners can be used for many more tasks than simply mopping floors. Here are a few popular uses:
Easy curtains ironing
If you hate ironing bulky and heavy things like curtains, for example, try to use a steam cleaner. It will save you the need to take the curtains down, wash them, then put them together, and so on and so forth. All you will need to do is direct the steam jet at the wrinkles and they will disappear in a blink of an eye.
Bring your cleaners to the yard
Floor steamers are not only incredibly helpful when cleaning inside your house, they can also do a great job when cleaning outside. If you have garden furniture that requires cleaning, try to clean it with a steam cleaner. A powerful jet of steam which the steam cleaner produces will allow you to remove stains and dirt that ingrained in upholstery, leaving it to look brand new.
Steam vs. Ice
If you don’t want to spend a lot of time waiting for your freezer to unfreeze, a steam cleaner will help speed up the process. Direct the steam inside the chamber and it will quickly melt ice.
Clean other household appliances
Apart from a refrigerator, a steam cleaner can be used for cleaning your dishwasher, oven, microwaves, washing machine, tumble dryer, and many more household appliances.
Help during repair
Removing wallpaper is probably the worst part of a repair. Well, it is, but if you have a steam cleaner you'll have less trouble. By applying hot steam to the wallpaper, it will come off on its own without you putting in any effort.
Wash glass surfaces
You can use your steamer to clean glass doors and windows as well. Just avoid using it on cold glass because it might crack.
Сarpets, rugs and upholstery
Removing dirt from fabric sometimes can be very difficult. However, if you buy a steam cleaner with special attachments, you'll be able to easily remove dirt from carpets, upholstery, rugs, and even your clothes.
All in all, we hope owners of steam cleaners and floor steamers will find these tips helpful. We also hope that those who hesitated whether to buy one or not will make up their mind after reading these reviews.
