Bissell Crosswave Pet Review

We all love our fur babies. They give us unconditional love, happiness and even add a boost of energy to our day. But, as adorable as they are, these precious four-legged companions can create a hairy mess in your home from time to time.

Furniture, clothes, floors, carpets – these can all be packed with animal hair. It doesn’t matter if you have a cat, a dog, or even a rabbit – pet hair will find its way into every crack, crevice, and surface in your home.

This situation can take a turn for the worse if you or a loved one suffers from pet hair allergies or asthma since pet hair exacerbates these problems. 19% (about one in five) Australians suffer from allergic rhinitis and three-fourths of these people also suffer from asthma.

So, what can you do to mitigate such a problem? You can’t stop the shedding, that’s for certain, but if you have a powerful vacuum, you can put this issue to rest.

Now, you may be wondering if an ordinary vacuum cleaner will work with such a problem. While your standard vacuum cleaner can do a good job of sucking up dirt, it won’t be as effective on pet hair removal as a pet vacuum. When it comes to cleaning your carpet, you need a vacuum with an efficient brush roll that cleans easily.

One of the complaints pet owners have with regular vacuums is that pet hair easily gets tangled in the bristles of the standard brushes these vacuums have – it is inefficient at picking up hair. Time and again, you have to laboriously clean the machine, the brushes, and other attachments that get these hairs stuck in them. 

Pet vacuums come with features that are specifically geared towards the removal of pet hair and other dirt they may leave behind. It has specially-made filters, accessories, and features that can help you deal with dander and fur more effectively. Furthermore, a HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) vacuum cleaner is needed to significantly reduce allergy triggers. This is where the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro can come in handy.

Bissell is a brand that has been providing high-quality cleaning products for years. The Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro is one of the latest additions to their roster of impressive products. This vacuum cleaner is equipped with all the features you need to clean your home of pet hair the right way.

It’s designed to be both functional and easy to use. You can easily clean up messes on hard floors and carpets with this cleaner. Thanks to the powerful suction and multi-surface cleaning head, pet owners are sure to suck up all the hairballs and gunk left by their fur babies around the house.

Our team had a chance to give this vacuum a proper spin. After a few tries, we’ve come up with a list of features, pros, cons, and how-to’s of the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro.

Bissell Pet Crosswave Vacuum Features

The Bissell Crosswave Pet Vacuum is designed to make cleaning after your pets easier. It features a twin-tank system that allows you to vacuum and mop at the same time. Its innovative technology releases water and soap directly on your floor or carpet, doing two cleaning jobs at the same time. To show you what you can get with this vacuum cleaner, here’s a rundown on each of its special features: 

Tangle-Free Brush Roll

Pet owners know how frustrating it is to have hair tangling and clogging up the vacuum brush roll. When this happens, not only does it stop spinning, but it also stops sucking up dirt. The tangle-free brush roll of the Bissell Pet Crosswave Vacuum cleaner can easily clean all types of surfaces – floors, rugs, carpets, tiles – and is specially designed for pet hair.

This brush roll is tested to pick up hair with lengths up to 8 inches so you can say goodbye to hair tangling up and clogging your vacuum roll. No need to remove dirt from your carpets manually when you use this feature. With the strong suction power of the unit and the motorized powerhead working in tandem, you can easily remove stubborn hair and dirt sticking to your carpets. 

Pet Hair Strainer

Easily remove pet hair and other large debris from your dirty water tank with this pet hair strainer. With the Bissell Pet Crosswave Vacuum, you don’t need to pick out the hair from your vacuum tank by hand.

This strainer feature helps you to easily remove hair and debris from the tank for easy disposal. Simply lift out the strainer by its handle and throw away the debris in the trash. Rinse this convenient strainer under running water and place it back into the vacuum in a snap. 

Cordless Power

Tired of tangled wires and constantly tripping over your vacuum cords? If so, you’ll be happy to know that this won’t happen with the Bissell Crosswave Pet Vacuum because it’s cordless. This vacuum cleaner makes life even easier around the home since you don’t have to suffer tangled leads and horrible hoses that drag along behind you as you clean.

The Bissell Crosswave Pet Vacuum comes in a convenient, portable, and lightweight form that’s ideal for cleaning jobs in small spaces and hard-to-reach areas. To use, just charge it, unplug when it’s powered up, and you’re ready to go. It has a battery that will last up to forty minutes when fully charged.

Multi-Surface Cleaning

To keep your floors and rugs clean, you have to go through three different actions – you vacuum, sweep, and mop to thoroughly remove dirt from your floors and rugs. What if you can combine all three tasks in one? You can by using the Bissell CrossWave Pet Pro Vacuum.

This powerful vacuum cleaner is designed to sweep and wash your floors and rugs at the same time. This helps you save up a lot of time, which you can use for other things, like enjoying your fur babies. You don’t have to change vacuum attachments or cleaning devices when you clean since this vacuum cleaner lets you shift from one to the other seamlessly.

Aside from this time-saving feature, this vacuum cleaner comes with a PET Multi-Surface formula. This formula can eliminate odours that result from pet accidents, pet grooming, and even food & beverage spills. This same formula can also get rid of nasty odours from litter boxes and other areas where you can find unpleasant smells.

Two-Tank Technology

Traditional vacuum cleaners can’t clean all floor surfaces effectively but the Bissell CrossWave Pet Pro Vacuum is a different story. With the help of Bissell’s two-tank technology, it’s super easy to get your floors super clean without recycling the dirty water in the process.

This two-tank system allows you to wash your floors without worrying about the dirty water going back into your cleaning solution supply. Simply fill one side with a cleaning solution to loosen tough dirt and stains, and the machine will do the rest. The dirty water that results from the action of the vacuum gets sucked up together with the dirt and is deposited into another receptacle that you can easily remove and clean after.

Vacuum and Wash at the Same Time

Cleaning floors can be very tedious, especially if you have to wash and vacuum these surfaces to get them truly clean. With the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro Vacuum, you eliminate the need to switch from a vacuuming device to a washing device since it does both. Wash and vacuum carpets and floors all in one go with this handy, dual-function vacuum cleaner.

To help you use your Bissell Crosswave Pet Vacuum Pro effectively, here’s a quick instruction guide for you to follow: 

Filling the Water Tank

  1. Bissell Crosswave Pet Vacuum Pro’s water and solution tanks are located at the back of the vacuum cleaner. The dirty water tank is located in front.
  2. To load the clean water tank, lift and move it upwards to remove it from the machine.
  3. Unscrew the cap and fill the tank with warm water. For large areas of up to 700 square feet, fill the tank up to the second water line. For smaller areas below 350 square feet, fill the tank up to the first water line. 
  4. Next, add the cleaning formula up to the appropriate fill-lines on the tank. For smaller areas, add formula until the liquid in the tank hits the first formula fill line. For larger areas, add formula until the liquid in the tank reaches the second formula fill line.
  5. Screw the cap back on and return to the machine.
  6. Slide the tank back into place by aligning it with the grooves and press down carefully until you hear it click in place.

Cleaning With Your Vacuum Cleaner

  1. To start cleaning, make sure that your cordless vacuum cleaner is fully charged. A fully charged machine will give you 30 minutes of cleaning power.
  2. To charge the vacuum cleaner, you first need to assemble the base, which is where you will charge your Bissell Crosswave Pet Vacuum Pro. Plug it in and place the vacuum cleaner on the base until it’s fully charged.
  3. Next remove the cleaner from the base and turn the machine ON by pressing the power button. You will then need to choose the setting you want to use. For this unit, there are three options – the Hard Floor, Area Rug, and Turbo Pet modes. Set the vacuum to the cleaning mode you’re planning to use.
  4. To prime the machine for cleaning, recline the body and press the trigger underneath the handle to moisten the brush roll with water or solution. After 10 seconds, you can start moving it back-and-forth on the areas you want to clean.
  5. To dry areas that have been cleaned by the wet brush roll, release the trigger and do a second to third pass without the solution.
  6. When cleaning carpets or rugs, be careful when pressing the water and solution trigger to avoid over-wetting your rugs or carpets.

Cleaning the Machine

After vacuuming, clean the Bissell Crosswave Pet Vacuum Pro before putting it away or recharging. To do this, here are some of the steps to follow: 

  1. Empty any remaining water and formula from the clean water tank and replace it with warm water up to the Clean Out Cycle symbol.
  2. Next, with the machine placed on the rinse tray and charging base, run the 40-second clean cycle.
  3. After the cleaning cycle, turn off and unplug the charging base. Remove the brush roll and place upright in its holder on the tray. Remove the machine from the tray and wipe down the charging base/rinse tray with a dry paper towel. Do not rinse the tray in water.
  4. Remove the dirty water tank and the clean water tank to clean them separately.
  5. To clean the dirty water tank, first pull out the pet hair filter and dispose of any debris there in the trash. Pour out the dirty water and rinse with clean water. Clean and rinse all other components, including the top filter, in clean running water as well.
  6. Let everything dry completely for 24 hours before assembling your machine again.

Tips on Using the Bissell Crosswave Pet Vacuum Pro

  • When cleaning hard floors, use the CrossWave Pet without pre-vacuuming. If you wish to speed the drying of your area rugs, clean your area rugs without the solution running. 
  • Use the Easy Clean Storage Tray to rinse off your brush roll when cleaning area rugs, or if you notice that the brush roll is starting to get encrusted with debris. 
  • To remove sticky and stuck-on messes from hard floors, hold your CrossWave Pet over the mess and use short passes with the trigger held down.

Did you know that regular vacuuming is the secret to achieve clean and fresh air indoors? We are here to help you know more about the best vacuum for your home.


Benefits of Regular Vacuuming

Vacuuming regularly is often thought of as a tedious chore, which is why it’s always tempting to skip such a task. However, if you want to keep your house clean, and for the sake of your health and well-being, it shouldn’t be skipped at all. Vacuuming can do more than just clean the dirt off your floors and carpets. It also brings with it a wealth of benefits for you and your family. To prove this point, here are some of the things it can do:

General Hygiene

A vacuum cleaner offers general hygiene to your household. This device can capture more than just dirt off the floor since it can also suck up dust, pollen, and unwanted particulates. A dirty carpet can teem with bacteria and even moulds. It can also be the source of harmful pollutants such as insect allergens and pet dander. Keeping your home clean by vacuuming regularly can help reduce or get rid of such harmful elements.

Allergy Relief

Did you know that aside from vacuuming to keep a clean home, you can also improve your health at the same time? By vacuuming the floor regularly, you remove pet hair and other allergens that can aggravate asthma and other allergies.

Pet dander and dust can easily accumulate in carpets and furniture if not vacuumed on a regular basis. Most dust particles are too small to be visible so people think that their home is clean and don’t vacuum regularly. These invisible particulates can pose a number of health problems.

The most common health problems caused by inhaling dust and other particulates include itchy eyes, dry coughs, nosebleeds, and poorly functioning mucosal membranes. Dust can carry a multitude of diseases and these can include ailments as serious as tuberculosis. The Asthma and Allergy foundation suggests that you vacuum your home once or twice a week to reduce the chances of such ailments affecting you and your family.

Improves Air Quality

Most people think that air pollution is something that occurs outdoors, but contrary to popular belief, air pollution can also also happen indoors. In fact, according to research, the air inside homes and establishments can be more polluted than the air you breathe outdoors. As stated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air pollutants are 2 to 5 times stronger than outdoor pollutants. Common effects of indoor air pollution include eye irritation, headaches, nausea, asthma, and breathing difficulties.

Indoor pollutants can come from a variety of sources – outdoor impurities and pollutants brought in by the inhabitants of the home, pollution generated by heating, cooling, and other activities like cooking, cleaning and smoking. Because of the four walls that keep this pollution contained, it can build up to a higher concentration, hence the higher level of pollution indoors. Without regular cleaning, this can create unhealthy indoor air quality, which can worsen when ignored and left to accumulate.

Maintaining good air quality at home is essential, especially for those with family members who suffer from allergies and asthma. Vacuuming regularly, even on a weekly basis to remove pet dander and other dust, hair, dust mites, and pollen, can help you achieve this. Moreover, good air quality at home can reduce the spread of airborne viruses, including COVID-19.

It Serves As a Form of Exercise

Did you know that you can burn as much as 166 calories by pushing your vacuum around the house? It’s true, since vacuuming requires that you exert yourself physically. The muscles involved during such an activity are your internal abdominal muscles (specifically the transverse abdominal muscles). Repetitions of this activity can be a form of light strength training and endurance building.

It Helps with Skin Health

VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, can accumulate on your skin. These compounds can enter your pores and can cause clogging, allergic reactions, inflammation, acne, and breakouts. What’s more, bad indoor air quality can cause your skin to age faster. Keep yourself from looking old and suffering from poor skin quality by keeping your home clean with the help of vacuuming.

It’s a Source of Pride and Accomplishment

Ever feel that sense of accomplishment that comes from finishing a task? Add to that the satisfaction of a clean home, and you’ll find that the task of cleaning can be a source of immense pride for you. A home is not just a place to live in – it can also be a way to express your personality. Keeping a home clean shows a great level of dedication and pride in what you can accomplish. Keep your personal space clean and you send a positive message and vibe to those around you.

Easy Clean-up for Pet Owners

If you have pets at home, then you know the kind of mess they can create. This is why it’s necessary for pet owners to have a vacuum cleaner on hand. Not only can it help get rid of pet hair from your sofa, carpet and other furniture, but it also helps get rid of pet odours with the use of the right formula.

A vacuum cleaner made specifically for this purpose helps remove pet hair completely from your home without suffering from the usual clogs and malfunctions regular vacuums experience. Eliminating dust, pet hair, and other pet-produced dirt from your surroundings not only make your home cleaner, but it also helps reduce the nasty smells that come from these pollutants.

Lessens Mite Infestations

Dust mites are commonly found in the coastal areas of Australia. You might not realize there are mites living and building up in your home since they’re not visible to the naked eye. These microscopic creatures usually nest in places with dead skin cells, which unfortunately can be found all around your home.

Some of the places where these mites can be found include your beddings, furniture, carpets, and even the stuffed animals your kids hug. Mites are a threat to skin health since they can cause facial pressure and eczema.

These minute creatures can also cause mild to severe respiratory problems. In mild cases, a dust mite allergy can cause a runny nose, sneezing, and watery eyes. In severe cases, it can give rise to nasal congestion, asthma attacks, and a slew of chronic illnesses.
