What experts liked
Good for grout and crevices.

The Bissell PowerFresh’s flexible joint and the shape of its cleaning head (rounded on one side, flat on the other) allows you to get right up against a floor edge, or into and around rounded areas.

It is lightweight cleaner, with good power cord length and combined with swivel head, it can cover large area and is capable to maneuver into tight spaces.

The mop head swivels easily, and the light weight of the unit makes it easy to push around, while still being sturdy enough that it didn’t feel as if it would break easily.

Strong cleaning performance, multiple steam cleaning modes, and good maneuverability help round out this steam mop as a whole.

You are going to be so impressed by the fact that this steam mop is able to work up to two times faster than many other steam mops that are available on the market today.

Experts at The Sweethome also laud the easy-to-fill tank and flexible cleaning head.

The built-in flip down scrubber is great for the really stubborn sticky/dried spots as well as for cleaning dirty grout.

What experts didn't like
Some hardwood floors do not tolerate steam very well.
- BestReviews
The PowerFresh’s two cleaning pads (one regular, one "strong"; replacement PowerFresh pads are available) are not very easy to get on or off the mop.

It doesn’t have an empty light indicator (perhaps the only negative).

The only issue we saw was the amount of liquid it could handle.

However, some say the plastic cap on the water tank is cheap and prone to leaks, and they also miss having a hook for hanging.
