The Crazy Suburban Mom: The BISSELL CleanView Vacuum with OnePass Technology takes on the worst carpet in the world, and wins!

The BISSELL CleanView Vacuum with OnePass Technology takes on the worst carpet in the world, and wins!

In 1996 I made a decision I've regretted ever since, I picked the color emerald green to carpet my entire house.

It seemed like a good idea at the time, having a six year old child and several pets.  I was worried that if I chose a light color within five minutes of moving in I'd have a beach-ball sized grape juice stain in the middle of the living room.    Fear made me pick a dark color and decisions born of fear never quite work out the way you'd hoped.

Dark carpets hide a multitude of  stains, true.  But nothing else.   Every  speck of dust, every dog hair, every minuscule piece of anything shines as bright at the noonday sun on a dark carpet.  Even after I vacuumed, it didn't last long. Once the dust settled there was still stuff visible all over the carpet.

So when Mom Central asked if I wanted to try the BISSELL CleanView Vacuum I was all over it like the desperate woman that I am.

I pulled it out of the box, attached what needed attaching, and started it right up... I did half the carpet in the living room just to see.... And in less then two and a half minutes I'd collected a horrifying amount of dirt and dust.

The OnePass Tech­nol­ogy really does allow for fast and thorough  cleaning   When I was  done the carpet looked great.  I waited to see what happened when the dust settled and... Nothing happened!  The BISSELL sucked up so much general dust I didn't have that awful redistribution of  flotsam and jetsam I had in the past.... and FYI the carpet looked great the next day. This seriously brought tears to my eyes...

The pros

  • It cleaned on one pass over the carpet.
  • It is a large vacuum, but easy to move around.
  • I didn't lose suction as I vacuumed.
  • It's magical on carpets
  • It cleans carpet better then any vacuum I've owned at any price (It's priced around $80).
  • The cord is 25 feet long so I'm not moving around the house from socket to socket. 

The cons

  • I'd prefer a different on/off switch in a different location.
  • It's meant for carpeted areas primarily (but since it's the carpets that keep me awake at night, this wasn't an issue for me.)
  • I would prefer internal cord storage.
I'm very happy and I give the BISSELL CleanView Vacuum 5 formally dust-covered thumbs up! 

 BISSELL is giving away a CleanView vacuum to one lucky winner who enters their facebook contest and tells them what they would do with extra time in their day.  The contest ends on March 9th so enter now.  Even if you don't have an evil carpet like I do it's wonderful to be able to clean faster.

Happy International Women's Day, Tracy!

Well, that was a fun video! I love seeing the specks get sucked up.

I have used, for at least 10 years, a 1970s Electrolux. It just goes and goes and goes and looks cool to boot. The guy at the vacuum shop said that there is nothing on the market today that compares, everything today is cheap, plastic, and when they break down you just throw them away and buy a new one.

I'm not crazy about bagless, I find them messy to empty!

But this vacuum looks like it really does a great job getting everything up efficiently!

Josh, Since we've had this house I must have bought between 7 to 10 vacuums. From low end to Dyson - The only one that worked more then two years is the dyson. I really thought that one did a terrific job on the dust (and I guess it did compared to the others) Until I ran this one the other day - Can't explain it at all. This one is so much cheaper, all I can say is I hope it lasts. That I won't know for years down the road... but if it doesn't it will take probably a dozen years and 6 replacements to cost as much as the dyson. I do like the bagless, I know they can be messy to empty.... But I was forever running out of bags. Now I don't have to think about it.

I buy 100 vacuum bags at a time from electrolux (now called Aerus for some reason) and that lasts a good long time. But I know what you mean! I hope the Bissell lasts too!
