Can Vacuuming + Washing Floors Be Done in One Step?
December 9, 2016
Vacuuming and washing floors can seem never ending and in reality, they pretty much are. Crumbs, food, sticky residue, dirt, shoe and paw prints….floors definitely take a beating. I’m always looking for better, faster, and more efficient ways to clean, so when Bissell asked me to review their new CrossWave™ All-in-One Multi-Surface Cleaner I jumped at the opportunity to try out this new and innovative floor cleaning product.
As someone that vacuums hard surface floors on one day and washes them the next, this is a game changer. Yes, vacuuming and washing floors can be done in one step – hooray! Here’s the Bissell CrossWave™ All-in-One Multi-Surface Cleaner in action.
These features are what makes the Bissell CrossWave™ stand apart from other 2-in-1 and traditional products:
- Two-Tank System – Keeps cleaning solution and dirty water separate to make sure you are always cleaning with fresh water and formula.
- Dual Action Brush Roll – Innovative microfiber and nylon brush scrubs and picks up dry debris at the same time.
- SmartClean Fingertip Controls – Fingertip controls allow you to easily switch between hard floor and area rug cleaning.
Simply fill the reservoir up to the lines – I just use the large area and wash all the floors at once. Bissell recommends only using their floor cleaning concentrates in this machine. They have three to choose from: area rug, wood floor, and multi-surface. I’ve been using the multi-surface.
I love how the cleaning brush works – it’s cleans the floor but never leaves it with residual water.
I’ve been using the CrossWave™ on our hardwood floors in our powder room, kitchen and entryway as well as on the tile in the bathrooms, mudroom, and laundry room. It does not disappoint!
I love the way it vacuums and washes in one step – perfect for tile too!
Check this out this is after one floor cleaning session – YUCK!
Once you’re done with washing the floors you need to wash out the reservoir, filter, and brush. This takes a couple minutes and you need to let everything dry thoroughly before returning to the machine.
This could be a drawback if you’re looking for a quick floor washing – I see the CrossWave™ more as a once a week or every other week machine with touch-ups using other floor washing methods in between.
I love how the CrossWave™ quickly vacuums and washes our floors in one step. There’s no residue and the floors are clean in a hurry! If you have area rugs, you’ll love this floor cleaner because not only can you wash your floors you can use this to deep clean your area rugs. If you’re looking for a new solution for your floors, I recommend that you give this a try!
