This next product is a Bissell product and is more geared to cleaning than vacuuming. This PowerFresh Steam Mop comes highly esteemed and with a great, budget-friendly price-tag.

This Bissell does not possess a vacuum function so the option of use is a bit more limited but the rave reviews it gets for cleaning tile floors earns it a spot on my list. Many reviewers also shared pictures of before and after shots with this particular model and can I just say... Wow!

One of the best things about owning a steam mop like the Bissell Powerfresh is that using steam is a safe and easy way to clean up to 99.9% of household germs and bacteria. With little ones around, moms today are becoming more and more cognizant of what types of cleaners are being used in the home.

The steam mop is a great way to avoid using harsh chemicals and still ensure your surfaces are properly clean and disinfected.

This steam mop only weighs about 8lbs, but this is before water is added to make sure you plan for a small addition to weight once it has water added. The manufacturer recommends using distilled or demineralized water to preserve the life of the unit since hard-water can be really hard on the heating elements inside over time. This is an added cost to consider when purchasing this steam mop, however, the mop pads are washable and reusable which can offset some of these concerns.

This is a corded unit so you will need a power source in fairly close proximity to your cleaning area. However, the cord is 23 ft long so there should be less need for moving the power source as you clean. The steam settings are adjustable depending on your particular needs or the urgency of the mess. More steam for a sticky, set mess, lighter steam for those quick cleans before the mother-in-law shows up!

But

There are no motorized functions with the unit at all. There is an attachable scrub head but it’s going to take some elbow grease to use that (more like a traditional mom head would be).

I sort of expected to see some rotating heads or something to help scrub, especially for uneven flooring like tile floors. The reviews don’t lie however at it does seem to do a great job in tight spaces and on grout joints.
