Mrs. Claus Would LOVE a BISSELL PowerFresh Lift Off Steam Mop Pet...So Will YOU!!

Ho-Ho-Ho my friends!!! Still looking for the purrfect holiday gift for that hard-to-please certain someone? You're in luck!!

I had a secret talk with Santa, and he told me about a product that Mrs.Claus LOVES to use when cleaning up after those messy reindeer, and I have a hunch that YOU will love it too!

Ok, so I didn't really speak to Santa and I have no clue if Mrs.Claus has a BISSELL PowerFresh Lift Off Steam Mop Pet, but if she had her choice of products that would effectively clean up reindeer footprints and "droppings", I have a sneaky suspicion that this would be her choice!

If you are reading this blog you more than likely have a pet. Many of you have MULTIPLE pets. We all know that with pets come messes. Oftentimes, the messes are hard to clean up, or they clean in such a way that we are never sure if all of the bacteria and irritants have truly been removed.



I was lucky enough to have been afforded the opportunity to review the BISSELL PowerFresh Lift Off Steam Mop Pet (specifically designed for pet owners, because BISSELL UNDERSTANDS pet messes), and I jumped at the chance.

I had first reviewed a BISSELL product years ago and loved it. I am also partial to BISSELL because their headquarters are located in Michigan (which is the state I reside in).  Loving BISSELL products as I do, when I first heard about the PowerFresh Lift Off Steam Mop Pet I was intrigued.



Why the Bissell PowerFresh Lift Off Steam Mop Pet?

When used as directed, eliminates 99.9% of germs and bacteria* using only water for a natural clean. *When using the microfiber cloth pad, use as directed, results may vary.


The Lift-Off POD allows for above-the-floor steam cleaning.





It includes multiple cleaning attachments for cleaning on a variety of surfaces above your floors including appliances, counter tops, windows, grout, and hardware.

The flip down EasyScrubber™ on the back of the foot makes removing tough, sticky messes on your floor simple and easy.

If you have been following my blog for a while, you know that I am blessed to have my dear friend Cheryl clean for us. I had never had a cleaning person in my life prior to Cheryl, and I am only lucky enough  to have her because she had already been cleaning for my husband before he and I had met! When my husband and I lived together before we were married, he made a declaration that "Cheryl stays!!" He didn't have to tell me that twice!! While I LOVE to cook, I do NOT love to clean! Having someone else do it for me every-other-week is a true gift/luxury! When I do have to clean, I want something that WORKS and is easy to use! The BISSELL PowerFresh Lift Off Steam Mop Pet is the answer!!




I am not as mechanical as I would like to think that I am, I had Cheryl test this product for me a few weeks ago when she was over to clean for us. If ANYONE knows about cleaning products, it would be Cheryl.  Cheryl not only cleans TONS of homes, she is a veritable "neat freak" in her home as well. If Cheryl tells me she likes a product, I listen. Cheryl LOVES this product and she swears that it is easy enough for me to use too!



We tested it on three different types of floors in our home, (Pergo, linoleum and bathroom tile), and the PowerFresh Lift Off Steam Mop Pet performed like a champ on ALL of them. It even steamed away GUM that my husband had hidden in his bathroom under a  rug. The gum was so adhered to the floor that no way did I think it would EVER come off, but it did! 

The PowerFresh Lift Off Steam Mop Pet is super easy to use, and you do not have to wait long for the unit to heat up enough to create steam. It's fast!! Listen to what Cheryl had to say about it:


Something else that both Cheryl and myself LOVE about the PowerFresh Lift Off Steam Mop Pet is that it is probably the ONLY floor cleaning product in our home that does NOT set "off"  our Shetland Sheepdog, Dakota!!! He will bark at pretty much anything. The slightest sound will set him off. When you watch the short video below you will see he looked at the mop for a second, he wasn't sure at first, but then became comfortable enough with it to immediately go back to enjoying his treats.

Most Importantly...It WORKS!!

Check out the dirt that was picked up:


BISSELL Understands Pets and the Messes they Make!

 In the early 2000s, they discovered that everyone  at BISSELL shares a love for pets (72% of them are pet owners!).  BISSELL  discovered that the reason many people did not want pets was because of the messes they were known to make around the home. When BISSELL  discovered  this was a deterrent to many would-be pet adopters, they knew they had to do something. In 2001, they began adoption efforts in partnership with Petfinder.com, and in 2005, they launched the SpotBot® portable deep cleaner, their first product designed specifically for cleaning up after pets. Under the leadership of Cathy Bissell (parent to three black labs), they continue to support the pet community through contributions to U.S. pet charities.

BISSELL GIVES BACK!!!!

  In 2011, Cathy Bissell founded the BISSELL Pet Foundation, a non-profit organization that advocates for lost, abused, neglected and abandoned pets by raising funds through the sale of BISSELL pet products. Since its inception, the BISSELL Pet Foundation has been able to award more than $500,000 to over 375 organizations in 43 states. Their goal is to raise $250,000 annually through pet product sales to support the life-saving work of the foundation. BISSELL is  deeply committed to helping pets find homes and to showing BISSELL customers that, with the right cleaning tools, pet ownership can be full of joy and companionship, rather than fur balls and “surprises”.



"A History of Good Business Since 1876.
It started with spilled sawdust..."


From BISSELL: Like many well-intentioned people who set out to have a relaxing Saturday, we didn’t mean to start cleaning—it just happened. In 1876, Melville R. Bissell and his wife, Anna, owned a small crockery shop in Michigan. Because they were constantly cleaning sawdust off the carpet of the shop (know the feeling?), Melville invented a unique carpet sweeper and patented it. When customers and friends began asking where they could buy the carpet sweeper, a new business was born.

It’s a BISSELL woman’s world

That’s the theme here at BISSELL. When Melville Bissell died in 1889, there was no question who would run the company. His wife Anna stepped in to lead the business, becoming the first female CEO in America. She aggressively defended the company’s patents and marketed sweepers successfully throughout North America and Europe. In fact, in the late 1890s BISSELL gained its biggest fan in Queen Victoria, insisting that her palace be “Bisselled” every week. Palace attendants must have loved the extra free time they had after royal messes became much easier to clean up.

To this very day, BISSELL is still family-owned and passionate about helping you effectively and easily clean your home so you can put down the vacuum, enjoy life and come home to a deeper clean. All in all, whether your messes are baby food or red wine, mud or chocolate, cat hair or pet accident, we’re here to help you embrace those messes, erase them in a jiffy, and get on with the most meaningful aspect of your home—living in it.


I hope you will give this product a try!!

  3. Looks like a good product but most of our floors are laminate and I would worry about hurting them.

    1. Hi Chuck!!! Our floor is laminate too (Pergo is laminate). Cheryl's husband actually did our floors for us. With laminate, you know how spilled water beads up and DOES NOT absorb into it the way it does with hardwood? Well, with the steamer you aren't getting ANY BEADING anyway.....spilling water or a cat peeing on the laminate is more liquid than the steamer is putting on the floor. It will steam for a second or so and then it DRIES SUPER FAST. I also don't use it every single time I clean the floors. Cheryl knows about floors from all of the cleaning she does and it is fine!

  5. My fur siblings and I always are neat and tidy around the house, but Mom says she would still love something like this to get the mess she makes on the floors cleaned up. Since it isn't us furs, the dirt must come from her!

  6. We have a steam cleaner too - a different make to yours but we are UK based so that's probably the difference. I love mine and can't believe how dirty the floors get with 2 cats running in and out even when it is dry outside.

  11. Caren, Thanks for introducing us to this product. Mom thinks she will add it to her Christmas list. Checking the Bissell web-site, the price looks great with he rebate. She also saw the ceramic fountains in the side bar. She and dad have been wanting to get us a second fountain for upstairs, and she saw some she really likes. We are adding one of those to our Christmas list. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    1. Thank you!!! Yep, it does!! Actually, Cheryl's husband put in our Pergo, so I was comfortable about using it on the floors because she would know about whether it was safe to use or not! You are most welcome!

  18. Mum has a steam cleaner, but it's so heavy and bulky that she doesn't use it very often. This one looks very light. Purrs

  19. This sounds AWESOME! I have a Swiffer mop thing, and it's okay, but it certainly doesn't get off anything that is adhered to the floor. I LOVE that this uses just water! That means it is safe for kitties, which is a huge plus!!! I will have to look into getting one of these. Thanks for the great review!

    ReplyDelete

    1. It IS awesome and NOTHING like the Swiffer! It is a ZILLION times better and YES it will get up things that are adhered to the floor, and YES it's safe for kitties! You are most welcome!

  20. That looks great! It looks much easier to deal with than the Floor Mate thing we have, which I never use because it's too much work! I think that is perfect, because I was always told with wood flooring not to use cleaners, but just plain water. But obviously, hot water is going to be best.
    BTW, I wish my hubby had come with a cleaning lady too....LOL!

    1. It IS great and thank you for making me laugh!! I lucked out on that one, didn't I? lol!!!!!! When he said that, I was thinking... "Yessssssssss!!" The best part? Cheryl is like a sister to me, we view her as part of our family. She also often pet sits for us when Lenny and I are both out-of-town together. She is a true gem.

  26. Wow, that Bissell sounds (and looks) pretty awesome! Cleaning floors would be lots easier if we had that.

    Thank you again, sweet pals, for your kindness in the wake of Moosey’s passing. He was a very special boy, and we love and miss him so much. The amazing love and support by you and our other friends has been such an encouragement during this difficult time.

    Much love to you.
