Bissell 1940A Steam Mop Review

Using steam mops has become a trend in the past few years, with numerous households taking full advantage of this cheap, yet very efficient method to clean their home. What makes steam mops very popular right now is the fact that they are inexpensive, and they do their job fairly well, something that makes the purchase of such a device quite a good investment.

Usage and features

The Bissell PowerFresh 1940a Steam Mop is one of the latest steam mops that have appeared on the market, and it comes jam-packed with a wide range of interesting features for home users.

One of the main things it provides is the easy scrubber, which allows you to change the orientation of the device, flip it then reach all those crevices or previously unreachable areas. Being able to flip and access the remote areas is a great new addition to the Bissell devices, but thankfully the evolution doesn’t stop here.

There were several features we liked about the Bissell PowerFresh 1940a Steam Mop. One of them is a removable water tank that’s very easy to fill. Another feature we liked about the device is that it has a low profile, so there aren’t any problems when it comes to using or storing it. Thirdly, the steam engine inside the Bissell PowerFresh 1940a Steam Mop does a good job as well. No matter how messy the floor was when we used the device, it managed to remove almost everything.

Another pleasant smelling feature about the Bissell PowerFresh 1940a Steam Mop, it supports scented disks. You may ask yourself, “What does this mean?” Well you can pick up a scented disk, with any aroma you chose and attach it to the cleaning pad. This aroma will then be spread throughout the entire house, equally while you clean your floors. I found this feature to work perfectly as my home smelled like a tropical paradise with clean floors.

The microfiber pad that comes with the Steam Mop is good, but not great. The design flaw with the pad is that it’s not dense enough to clean all the dust and grime off the floors. If the pad were thicker, it would do a much better job. We liked that you received variable steam controls though, and at the high intensities you do manage to clean almost everything.


All in all, the Bissell PowerFresh 1940a Steam Mop is one of the best steam mops on the market. It manages to work well even in the remote areas, and it’s very easy to maneuver as well thanks to its small size and weight. Sure, it does have some issues removing all the dust/grime from the floor, but overall it’s a good, solid investment if you need a reliable steam mop.
