Little worker bee, I love it

By CleanQueen

from Tallahassee, FL, USA

Comments about Bissell Hard Floor Expert Vacuum Cleaner:

I have a part time cleaning business, and I have pets at home. This little vacuum gets put through a lot with me. Pros) suction is great; vacuum is pretty light weight and has a handle built into the canister; parts come apart super easily; there is an on/off switch on top of the handle; on/off switch on canister that can be pushed with your foot; retractable cord. Cons) Some say the cord is too short for one room (not sure what size their rooms are! Must not be an average house size); you do have to empty the canister often but it's SUPER easy and shows it's really picking up a LOT of dirt! Be sure to shake out all filters for best suction - but again, it's easy and quick and I don't see it as a con. Any equipment will need a "little" bit of maintenance to run at its' best. I love it and have recommended it to several people. As a side note: Someone gave it one star for what I thought was a petty reason. That was not at all deserved in my opinion.

    horrible vacuum

    By Granny

    from Wappingers Falls, NY 12590, USA

    Comments about Bissell Hard Floor Expert Vacuum Cleaner:

    Vacuum is horrible more trouble then it's worth. Everyone raves about bag-less I hate it, can't wait for it to break so I can buy a vacuum with disposable bag. I was told that there is no way to convert the vacuum to use a bag. If I could rate it 0 stars I would. Worst mistake I ever made.

      Awesome for Wood Floors!

      By HB

      from New York

      Comments about Bissell Hard Floor Expert Vacuum Cleaner:

      I was skeptical at first and wondered if this was really good on wood floors (or just some creative marketing!) But this really is a great vacuum for our apartment with all wood floors. The head kind of suctions to the floor and sucks up find debris. Even when the floors look "clean" this will pick up fine dust that we didn't see. We have a large dog and this is great for the hair too. I really like that it doesn't blow the dirt around like many vacuums do. Retractable cord is really a plus. The only con is that the canister is kind of small, so you may have to empty it more than once if you have a really large mess, but it hasn't been too big of a problem.


      Good Hard Floor Cleaner

      Comments about Bissell Hard Floor Expert Vacuum Cleaner:

      This does really well on hard floors. It doesn't do great on carpet, but that is not what it's for. We have hard floors, laminate, and tile and it cleaned all of them well. The only complaint that I would have is that it is a canister vacuum and it's just not my preference. But overall, a very solid vacuum if you have hardwood floors and don't mind it being a canister vacuum.


      I won this vacuum

      By Talia

      from Chandler az

      Comments about Bissell Hard Floor Expert Vacuum Cleaner:

      Ok so I won this vacuum from bissell i thought it was a scam i never won anything in my life well i have used it everyday for the past week 7 days at 30 mins at a time everyday like clockwork It is pretty close to perfect the power cord is a little short and the suction hose is a foot to short however it makes up for it in power I was shocked when I felt the suction. it rolls very easy. It is a joy to use. super quiet I spent my time picking up light sand and dust as I live in Arizona also I have 4 guinea pigs so it picked up piggy waste sawdust and a few pellets of food I would highly recommend this product from bissell in fact I told 6 of my neighbors and 2 of them plan on buying one because they were amazed by the power

      Lightweight and excellent

      By Bet71

      from Georgia

      Comments about Bissell Hard Floor Expert Vacuum Cleaner:

      Too bad one review brought the average rating down. I've had this vacuum around a year. My primary need was to find a lightweight vacuum to carry up and down stairs with ease. Does an excellent job on my hardwood floors and I also use for light clean ups on scatter rugs. It isn't intended for heavy duty carpet cleaning ! Also, to keep it lightweight, the trade off of emptying the container and having a shorter cord is worth it (although I don't consider the cord short, as has been mentioned.
