The Bissell 2949 Hard Floor Cleaner is a lightweight, powerful vacuum as well as a wet mop that dries floors quickly! One side of the unit has a powerful vacuum to pick up crumbs, pet hair and dirt. Then, by flipping the unit over and tilting the handle back, the Gentle Clean Pad or Brush is lowered for wet cleaning. As the trigger is squeezed, water and formula are dispensed on the floor. The Gentle Clean Pad or Brush then cleans the floor while the squeegee and suction leave the floor virtually dry.
