I do my best to keep my house clean, but with three kids and two dogs, that can be quite a challenge. Even though I sweep and vacuum every day, my five-year-old carpet looks as though it’s been in use for twice that long. It was actually a bit embarrassing to have such dirty carpeting despite all my hard work, but replacing everything was out of the question. We simply didn’t have the money to do something that drastic. So after a bit of research, I decided to try a Bissell steam cleaner instead.

First, I have to say I was surprised by how many different cleaners are on the market today. Admittedly, I don’t really pay much attention to these products until I need them, so that’s why I’d never heard of any of the other brands before. But the housekeeping tasks were neglected and the place was a mess. So rather than call a house cleaning company, I decided to roll-up my sleeves and get to work. Bissell steam cleaners have been around since I was a kid. My mom trusted their product, so I decided to check them out before anyone else. I was very impressed by what I saw.

The current line of Bissell steam cleaners provides consumers with a convenient, affordable way to renew their carpeting or hardwood floors. For folks like me that want to give their carpeting a deep clean to remove the dirt and grime left by children and pets, a Bissell steam cleaner and vacuum combo should do the trick. These high-tech machines come with the company’s patented built-in “DirtLifter” system and scrubbing brushes, which, when combined with hot water, will give carpeting the deep down, thorough cleaning I’d been searching for.

Those of you with hardwood floors won’t be left out of the action. You can buy a Bissell steam cleaner and mop combo designed exclusively for use on flooring. These machines pick up the dust and debris that ordinary mops can’t, and also sanitize while they’re at it. Can you imagine how much easier it would be to clean your floors, hallways, and steps with a Bissell steam cleaner instead of breaking your back with an old-fashioned mop?

I looked at some other brands just in the interest of due diligence, but nothing really compared to Bissell steam cleaners in terms of price and performance. I guess there’s a reason this company has been around for so long. You don’t last in this day and age unless you provide a quality product that lives up to the hype.

Forget about calling in a maid service or renting an outdated machine. At less than $250, I can get my very own Bissell steam cleaner and use it whenever I need to. Having spotless carpeting might seem like a small thing to some people, but it means a lot to me. Now I don’t have to cringe with embarrassment whenever anyone visits my home because I know my carpets will look, smell, and feel as good as new!
