Bissell 1543A Symphony Pet All-in-One

Most things that bring pleasure to your daily life also come with messes. Your dog is the perfect companion for outdoor walks and snuggle sessions on the couch, but they may have accidents and shedding is a constant problem. While you love your cat, you may not love picking up the litter that they fling outside of their box or the hair that collects on their favorite couch cushion.

The Bissell 1543A Symphony Pet vacuum and steam mop was designed to help you maintain a clean and sanitary home regardless of the messes that come with daily life. Even if you don’t have pets, you may find that this lightweight vacuum/steam mop is the most efficient solution for unexpected spills and quick wipe downs for every floor in your home.

Accomplish More in Less Time

The Bissell Symphony 1543A was designed for multitasking. Instead of sweeping your floor to eliminate dry debris and then mopping or steaming, you can do these tasks simultaneously. You have the option of turning the steam off and using it as a lightweight vacuum for carpets or hard floors, or you can turn the steam on to create heat and moisture that kills germs and bacteria while cleaning and shining your floor.

If you’re going to use a steam mop, why not invest in one that eliminates the need to vacuum or sweep before steaming? The advanced technology used to create this efficient Bissell vacuum/steam mop keeps dry debris away from the steam and moisture at all times, so you never have to worry about emptying wet debris from the dirt tank.

Simple, Healthy Operations

While you may need the functionality of a larger vacuum cleaner with multiple attachments, you don’t want to haul that heavy machine out every time your puppy has an accident or a child drops a bowl of soup. Since the Bissell Symphony 1543A weighs only 10.6 pounds, it allows you to clean up messes quickly. It’s also light and small enough for kids and teenagers to push, and users with physical limitations can often maneuver this machine comfortably and safely.

Turning the Bissell Symphony on is easy. Just touch the digital buttons to select a setting for the vacuum and steamer. You can turn the steam off or select between low and high steam. The steam allows you to mop any surface without adding a cleaner, so you never have to worry about introducing chemicals into your home. This is the healthiest and most natural way to clean your home, ensuring that it remains safe for every member of your household.

A Pad for Every Situation

The Bissell Symphony 1543A comes with a soft pad that will never scratch your floors, and you can throw it in the washer whenever necessary. When you need to clean up a bigger mess, replace that pad with a SwifferBISSELL SteamBOOST disposable mop pad. These wet pads work just like a standard Swiffer wet pad, so you can apply more moisture and the power of a cleaner to eliminate big messes in little time. You never have to wash these pads, so they’re perfect for quick cleanups. Scent discs are also available if you want to introduce a pleasing aroma into your home.

There are separate heads for carpeting and hard floors, so this is a vacuum and steam cleaner that you can use on any surface. The heads pop off and on easily, so it takes little time to transition between rooms with different types of flooring.

Is the Bissell Symphony 1543A Right for Your Home?

While this vacuum/steam mop can save you a lot of time and offers a chemical-free way to keep your home clean and sanitary, it isn’t necessarily a replacement for your larger vacuum cleaner. For instance, you can use it to quickly clean up when your puppy has an accident or your cat sheds hair on your favorite rug. It’s also perfect for sweeping up everyday dirt and putting a shine on hard floors, but it has limitations when it comes to vacuuming larger rooms with carpeting.

The mop head features one suction hole, and it can only pick up items that are perfectly positioned beneath that hole. This is adequate for cleaning up dirt and dry debris while mopping or steaming your floor, but it doesn’t have the suction power of a standard vacuum cleaner or a carpet cleaning machine. You may also need the attachments that come with a larger vacuum to adequately clean furniture, pet beds and small cracks or crevices. Due to these limitations, it’s best to reserve your Bissell Symphony for quick cleanup jobs and daily maintenance of hard floors.
