BISSELL CleanView Vacuum
I have two older kids (16 and 23) and two indoor cats. This spells “MESSY”! Now as you know, I am one busy blogger and to keep my house clean, I need products that allow me to do household chores quickly and efficiently. It seems that anytime I turn around there is something on the floor/carpet – whether it be food bits from the kids or fur from the kitties. IT NEVER ENDS.
My husband and I have had so many vacuum cleaners since we first got married. There have only been a handful that I actually liked. One frustrated me so much that I tossed it in the backyard (true story!). I need something powerful – and this is where the BISSELL CleanView Vacuum comes in. When I received it, I couldn’t wait to try it out.
Assembly was a breeze – I did it myself (yay me!) in about 5 minutes. At first I thought the crevice tool was missing, but it was actually just hiding in the hose attachment. The instructions were really easy, and there aren’t a bunch of parts to try to figure out. It couldn’t have been easier!
My first mission was to tackle the cat fur on my bedroom floor. Please pardon the dirty floor in the photo below, but I let it get this way so that I could thoroughly test out my vacuum when it arrived. Hmmm, saving up dirt – that is something new for me!
Want to see all the fur, crumbs, etc that it sucked up? You probably don’t, but take a look – this is impressive!
Gag. Although I was happy with the results, I was also kind of disgusted at how much stuff was on my carpet (and how much that my previous vacuum missed!).
The Bissell CleanView Vacuum has amazing suction, due in part to the cyclonic system. It picked up everything in one swoop. One of the things I am most happy with is how well it picks up cat litter. We have a large area set up with a big area rug, for the litter boxes. My cats tend to fling pieces all over and with every other vacuum I have had, I have to go over these areas again and again. OR the vacuums kind of spit it back out and blew it in different directions. This was not the case with my new machine. One swipe over the carpet and every piece of litter was sucked up. Seriously. Do you have any idea how much time this will save me? It will also save my back, as I won’t be bending down to pick up the little pieces out of frustration.
See? No kitty litter!
There are different settings to choose from, which I am happy to see, as the downstairs of my house has laminate flooring (with lots of area rugs), and the upstairs is carpeted. I use the bare floor setting a lot and I am pleased with how well it picks up crumbs, and oddball things that get tracked in the house.
Included with the vacuum are several attachments: Turbo Brush which can be used on stairs, upholstery, furniture, etc., a crevice tool for those hard to reach places, or in corners, and an extension hose. It also comes with a Hepa media filter to keep air clean (really important if you have cats…or people with allergies in your home). I love the washable foam tank filter and the EasyEmpty dirt tank. Everything is just so well thought out and user friendly.
Now that vacuuming is less of a chore and more of a time-saver (and actually I kind of enjoy vacuuming now), I will use the extra time to do the things I want to do, such as playing with my kitties, oil painting or getting more blog work done.
