Bissell CleanView Helix Deluxe Review

The Bissell CleanView Helix® Deluxe series is a full featured upright vacuum cleaner that is designed for total home cleaning when you need it, as you need it. For a sub-$100 bagless vac, it packs a load of useful and innovative features that are commonly found in more expensive models. In terms of cleaning performance and efficiency, this machine’s featured Helix Cleaning System allows it to go bumper to bumper against its counterparts, making it one of the most sought after upright vacuum cleaner in the market today.

Perfect for People Who…

The Bissell CleanView Helix® Deluxe is a perfect machine for people are looking for a budget-friendly, upright type vacuum cleaner that doesn’t skimp when it comes to performance and features. Made ideally for use on both carpets and bare floors, you will love the straightforward capability that this vacuum can deliver as well as the Bissell patented Helix suction technology all wrapped in one neat traditional design package.

Looks and Feel

The Bissell CleanView Helix Deluxe looks just like any traditional upright vacuum cleaner but without the dirt bag holder which allows its overall dimension to measure in at just 12.5″x15″x 44″ and weigh just 16 lbs. A 12-amp motor gives more than sufficient suction power to pick up even pet hair. This machine’s 15” wide cleaning path has an adjustable surface height setting (5) and uses 2 rows of rotating brushes for cleaning different floor types.

Among other features and accessories found in this device includes the following: TurboBrush® Tool for cleaning stairs, furniture and upholstery; crevice tool; extension wand; a dusting brush; a 27′power cord; a headlight for cleaning dimly lit areas; an Easy Empty™ Dirt Cup to hold the debris; and a HEPA media filter that captures over 99% of airborne allergens such as pollen, dust mites and ragweed that gets sucked up by the vacuum. On top of it all, Bissell offers a 3-year limited warranty coverage for your unit purchase.

Helix Dirt Separation System

The Bissell patented Helix® Dirt Separation System of the Bissell CleanView Helix Deluxe ensures powerful cleaning performance by capturing dirt and other debris using the internal “ribs” incorporated into its Easy Empty™ dirt container. The system works by separating dust debris by pushing the larger particles into the bottom of the canister thereby giving the machine better suction and cleaning efficiency.

Air Flow Indicator

The Bissell CleanView Helix® Deluxe features a see-through, wire-reinforced stretch hose which acts as an air flow indicator to help you monitor the vacuum’s air flow. If and when a clog occurs, you will immediately have a visual on the obstruction and be able to fix it to maintain the machine’s suction performance and consistency.

Dual-Edge Cleaning

Another feature found on the Bissell CleanView Helix® Deluxe is its Dual-Edge Cleaning feature which consists of additional brushes and suction on the sides of the cleaning path. This feature provides a “surround suction” to clean hard-to-reach places such as baseboards and around furniture.

BISSELL Spotbot Review

BISSELL Spotbot is a cleaning device designed mainly for spot cleaning deep down stains in your floor carpets, rugs, or upholstery. It features an automatic cleaning cycle that allows you to pick the correct setting for stain clean-up and walk away while the machine does the work for you.

Perfect for People Who…

The Bissell Spotbot Pet Hands-free Spot and Stain Cleaner with Deep Reach Technology (33N8A) is the perfect cleaning device for any household with pets or children as both are the main causes of leaving nasty spills and stains that will inevitably leave your floors and carpets a mess to behold.

Users will love the hands-free method it offers for removing spots, stains and all types of spills on carpets, upholstery, car interiors and stairs. It is also small, lightweight and portable so it can be carried throughout the house where needed.

Looks and Feel…

BISSELL Spotbot At WorkAt first glance, the Bissell Spotbot Pet Hands-free Spot and Stain Cleaner with Deep Reach Technology looks just like a small canister-type vacuum cleaner with a dimension of 9″W x 17″W x 12.5″H. But the pair of clear 32oz. tanks located on either side of the machine is what gives it away as a carpet cleaner. It has a rather small 7-inch cleaning area and a control panel with five setting buttons is located on top of the unit. A 16ft. cord is sufficient enough for spot cleaning as it is intended to do.

Underneath the Bissell Spotbot are the cleaning brushes which use a unique spiral action that rotates at more than 400 revolutions per cleaning cycle to loosen up and lift out stain causing dirt. It even has a carry handle so users can take it to places where ordinary vacuums simply cannot reach. For manual cleaning in hard to reach areas, the hose and cleaning tools are conveniently stored on-board the device for easy reach.

Also included in the package are a 16oz. bottle of Oxy Gen2 and an 8oz. bottle of 2X Ultra Pet Stain & Odor Chemical. This product is backed by a 1-year limited warranty coverage.

Deep Reach Technology

This feature utilizes Bissell’s Unique Spiral Brushing action that completes over 400 cleaning revolutions for a meticulous yet effective removal of tough dirt and stains. The machine starts to clean from the bottom moving upwards to thoroughly remove stains embedded deep down carpets, rugs and upholstery.

Microban Antimicrobial Product Protection

This feature is built into the key components of the SpotBot Pet Handsfree Spot and Stain Cleaner to fight the growth of odor causing bacteria, mold and mildew for a clean and fresh smelling environment after clean-up.

Automatic Smart System

This feature enables the device to deliver just the right amount of cleaning solution for the type of stain you want removed. Just turn the dial on the desired setting and the Spotbot Pet Hands-free Cleaner will do the rest.
