Good product

published

I used my new Bissell Crosswave Cordless on my vinyl floors For the first time to day, my floors look great it was easy to us and easy to clean afterwards. I have only given four stars because of the very flimsy 3 in 1 Docking station, it is very cheaply made and I didn’t think it will last long, for the money I paid for the unit I feel Bissell could do a great deal better in the making of the dock.

Purchased in August 2020 at Bissell Outlet Store.

Impressive!

published

Wow! I love this vacuum/mop. I have tiles with lots of area rugs, so great you can vacuum and wash the floors and rugs at the same time. Battery lasts a very long time, really impressive. It is a bit heavy, but so is carting buckets of water around. It cleans itself, although you do need five minutes to rinse out the filters afterwards, but no big deal at all. It even copes with a fair amount of dog hair without getting clogged, cleaned dog sick of the rug with no mark left. I have bought and been through at least 6 other cordless vacs including a very expensive dyson (which gave us electric shocks amongst other issues) so I was sceptical about this one, but it turned out to be a winner.

The easiest way to clean

published

The Bissell Crosswave Cordless is extremely easy to use and has been a lifesaver. We have two dogs and three parrots the combination together means mess. I don't use the Bissell formula it's way overpriced and you need so much. I buy the bosistos floor cleaner from Woolworths you only need a tiny bit about half a little finger nail from top of formula fill line. The bosistos bottle will last for ages and cleans so much better. The Bissell Crosswave Cordless is quiet and the battery run time is 30 minutes. I don't mind the five minutes it takes to clean the machine just buy extra filters and brush rolls to rotate.

I am amazed at how much dirt it picks up off my floor but I have a large area of floorboards with a satin type finish and it always looks steamy so I have to wipe it over with a damp cloth to remove. Please help me I want to keep this machine for hygiene but I thought it would not streak as it does

I meant streaky not steamy

If not already, try the Hard Floor Brushroll (not the Multi-Surface that comes as standard). The Hard Floor Sanitise formula or Wood Floor formula tends to be best for minimising streaks on floors that have that tendency, mixed with quite warm water from the tap.

Other tips for minimising streaks are to 1) use half of the formula amount recommended on tank, and 2) move the machine slower on that flooring (slower than you would when typically vacuuming), 3) only pressing the trigger on the forward pass or very occasionally to minimise excess moisture on the floor, and 4) release the trigger on the backwards pass making sure you're moving back over the same area you cleaned in the forward pass. Hope that helps! Otherwise contact Bissell and they should be able to assist further.

Runtime is 30 mins on a single charge, running from a 36volt lithium ion battery. Recharging will take approx 2-3 hours. If 30 mins isn't long enough, they also offer the Crosswave Pet which is the corded version.

The battery lasts about 20 minutes - ONLY JUST ENOUGH to do a small kitchen, dining, lounge, hallway and bedroom. Frustratingly once the battery is flat you can't clean it until it recharges because of the SLOW charger.

I get a full thirty mins on each run when cleaning my tiles and rugs. If you think you're having an issue with the battery just contact Bissell. Or just take advantage of your 60 day money back guarantee.

Hi the first time i use the bissell crosswave pet it vacuumed and washed the floors very well was very happy. 3rd time i have used it, the last 2 times actually, its not vacuuming the excess water leaves my floors wet so when it drys leaves the floors streaky. this makes the vacuum cleaner slip all over the floor. The first time i used it, it vacuumed the excess water with no problem the container that collects the dust had the dirty water in it now i have vacuumed 5 bedrooms all of up stairs actually and no water in the dust container just wet floors. I'm starting to not like this machine any more. if i go from hard to rug all the wet dust and debris goes on to the mat. yes it vacuums up but doesnt leave the mats clean at all. is it the machine or am i doing something wrong?

Make sure your brush roll window is secured to the machine properly (just detach and reattach again to be sure) and also make sure the dirt tank is also secured into the machine with the filter pushed down firmly into the correct position. It would be worth checking the metallic mesh part of the filter (on the bottom side) for any debris on it as well. The other thing would be to check the rubber sleeve that sits under the tank, making sure it's secure and also free of debris - as well as the air intake port behind the brush roll. Using the self-cleaning system with the cleaning tray supplied after every use should dislodge anything that might disrupt airflow. As always for best results on all floor types (in particular on rugs) move the machine slower that you normally would with a traditional vacuum cleaner. The machine comes with a 2 year warranty at least, so if any issues definitely call Bissell (customer care centre is in Melbourne) on 1300-247-735 or email their customer care team.

Thank you, I do wash all the pieces you are supposed to wash after every use but I will check out the places u told me in case there is something there. Cheers

It's always recommended to only activate the trigger for the solution on the forward pass also, that should eliminate any excessive amounts of water being used. Hope that all helps - otherwise Bissell customer care should be able to assist further :)
