I’m thinking of Buying a Bissell Pro Heat 2 Upright Steam Cleaner, do I need to also have a regular Vacuum?
Do I need to Vacuum up pet hair, etc before I use one of these Bissell Upright Steam Cleaners. I was going to purchase a new Bagless Bissell Pet Hair removal vacuum and the aile over I saw the Bissell Pro Heat cleaners for like 100 bucks more. Can I just get rid of my vacuum and use this steam cleaner instead or do you still need to vacuum before you clean. Or can I use steam cleaners without the water now and then just like a vacuum?
You have to have both.
Steam cleaners aren’t designed to be vacuum cleaners. (I haven’t heard of a dual purpose one yet.) You need a vacuum cleaner for weekly general cleaning in between steaming and you use the steam cleaner for cleaning every couple months or if have a particularly tough stain in carpet or a large house party to clean up after.
Or just buy the vacuum cleaner and rent a steamer when you need it. Or hire Stanley Steamer to steam clean for you.
The only people who really need to own a steamer and use it frequently are those with white/light carpets and lots of foot traffic and pets.
