I’d rather not spend all my time cleaning. It’s not that I hate cleaning, I just have so many other things I’d rather be doing than clean. Don’t we all? Even the simple tasks like putting the dishes away or dusting the living room seem daunting when I’d rather be outside or cooking or crafting. And when I don’t have the right products to help me clean efficiently? Now that makes me want to clean even less. Having to go over the same spot multiple times is so frustrating – and such a waste of time!
My husband and I, being newlyweds, live in a really tiny apartment. We actually love our little space, but one thing I would definitely change is the amount of carpet. Since we’re renting, we don’t have much of a say in it, but it’s actually almost completely covered in carpet. Oh, how we would love to have hardwood! And maybe someday we will, but for now, we need to work with what we’ve got. This is why I was really excited to try the new BISSELL CleanView Vacuum because freshly vacuumed carpet is always a wonderful thing.
This vacuum is really great, too! It was so easy to put together, and most importantly, it’s not super heavy! It’s super easy to lug around the house (not that we have a lot of square footage to move it), but it’s nice to not have to strain. This vacuum also comes with a part for everything making it easier to clean all different areas such as stairs, tight corners and seams.
My last apartment actually had stairs, so I know this would have been really handy to have there. I tried it out along the baseboards and it cleaned it really nicely.
And all those parts? They are stored beautifully on the back of this vacuum. My last vacuum had some extra parts, but they would always fall off or get knocked when I was using it. BISSELL created the perfect way to attach everything so that it doesn’t get in the way or fall off when in use. It’s fantastic!
And have you ever had a bagless vacuum? They are just wonderful! This vacuum has a really easy-to-use dirt tank that you can empty straight into the trash. No more bags, less waste, and it can hold a lot of dirt. I love this feature because you never have to worry about having enough bags on hand. You can vacuum whenever you want!
It also has a really convenient setting that makes it work for all types of floors. I have a lot of “medium” high carpet, so the middle setting worked great for me. But even if you had hardwood, you could use this vacuum on the bare floor setting and I’m sure it would work great. Or, if you have some really high, soft and shaggy-like carpet, this high carpet setting would allow you to clean all the way through.
So now I’m sure you’re wondering how well this works. I had actually vacuumed my carpet only a week before, so I figured it wasn’t incredibly dirty (we don’t have any kiddos running around yet!), but when I ran this vacuum over it, just once, it picked up so much dirt, it grossed me out! I loved how much cleaner even my brown carpet looked after running this baby over it. It almost made it look shampooed!
And they’re right; I only had to run the vacuum over it once. Done and done. It hardly took any time to vacuum my entire apartment. I didn’t realize how convenient it was to be able to run it over the carpet once and be done, until I had the chance. So much less work!
All in all, I think it is a fabulous vacuum. My only complaint would be that the on/off switch is in a strange spot (see that small red button in the picture above?). I would rather have it near the handle so I wouldn’t have to bend over, but if that’s my only complaint, I can live with that.
We should be spending more time with the ones we love and doing the things we love instead of cleaning our homes. Our homes definitely need to be cleaned, but if we can find a faster and better way to do so? We should definitely take it. Faster vacuuming = more time with my husband. I like that.
The BISSELL CleanView vacuum can stay.
