Bissell Symphony Pet Steam Mop Review (1543A Model)
There are so many things to love about the Bissell 1543A Symphony Pet Steam Mop, including a plethora of convenient features. Unlike the Shark, the Bissell Symphony gives customers the option as to whether they want the steamer on or off. It can simply be activated by the press of a button at any given point during your cleaning! This means that the Bissell Symphony can be your vacuum, your steamer, or your vacuum steamer!
Construction only takes up to a few minutes, and then Symphony is ready to clean! With easy, lightweight click-in-place pieces, it can be assembled in no time.
There are a variety of steam levels included, depending on what extent you’d want to clean your floors. It includes a low-steam and a high-steam, as well as a few different vacuum options as well. Unlike the Shark, you don’t have to bend over to reach these options; they’re simply placed at the top.
The Bissell Symphony conveniently stands up on its own! In the case that you need to take a rest, or answer the phone, the Symphony will be waiting for you as it was whenever you return.
How to Use it
Adding water to the steamer is also very easy. You simply just flip open the water door and pour in the desired amount of water.
Another convenient feature this product proudly embraces is the extra Swiffer head that is included with the mop. In case you run out of Bissell cleaning pads and have a few Swiffer pads lying around, this steam mop included a Swiffer head that you can switch to with a simple click.
Many customers also loved how this steamer could fit into every nook and cranny in their house. Weighing only 10 pounds, this product is lightweight and pretty easy to maneuver. Due to the structure of the handle, this steamer mop can easily steam or vacuum underneath couches, beds, and so much more. However, with this being said, some customers have complaints about the steamer mop not being able to reach the wall or go sideways.
Parents and pet owners alike loved the combined feature of being able to sweep up pet hair and steam the floors at the same time. Strong suction ensures that even the crumbiest and hairiest messes are swept up in no time. Another adored feature of the Bissell 1543A Symphony Pet Steam Mop was its hands-free disposal technology. Nobody likes scooping up pet hair and disposing it manually. It’s as simple as pushing a button and letting the rubbish release.
Another cool feature that was included is the ability to insert different scent disks for a variety of nice-smelling after-scents. This feature was especially loved due to the diversity of peoples’ noses; Everyone appreciates a different smell, and luckily there is a variety of different scents to choose from.
A 25-foot cord is also included to ensure maximum reach while cleaning. Most people enjoyed this length, though some wished it could have been a tad bit longer. This wasn’t a primary concern, though.
There were a multitude of complaints, however, about the amount of time it takes to heat up the steamer. Ideally, it should take about fifteen minutes, though for some people it took longer. Others complained that the product stopped working after one to two uses. Some were able to use it up to a month before it broke on them. One person even complained that the trigger kept breaking off of their product. A few people also complained that their water tanks were leaking. A large group of people were saying that the mopping function left streaks on their wood or tile floors.
Despite the number of mixed reviews, this product appears to be somewhat of a good seller. However, there were contrasting opinions about the same topics, such as the scent of the disks and the amount of vacuum suction included. This seems like one of those products where you either like it (but aren’t crazy about it) or you absolutely loathe it.
One opinion seems to stand alone on both sides of the spectrum: This product does not replace a household vacuum cleaner. While the positive reviews say that the Bissell 1543A Symphony Pet Steam Mop helps cut down cleaning time it simply does not work as a standalone product. The negative reviews, however, believe that their vacuum cleaners were more efficient.
However, for those customers who didn’t like it as much, this product also offers a product warranty, as most Bissell products do.
