You’ve heard of a vop, right? No? Well, aren’t you in for a treat: BISSELL’s new floorcare product – the Crosswave Cordless Max (opens in new tab) – can mop and vacuum, hence the merge of these two words to become vop. Vopping makes for an easier clean-up since you need only lug one floorcare product out of that hectic cleaning cupboard of yours. And, not only is it great for use on hard flooring, such as wood and tiles, but it can also be used to spruce up an old but gold rug, or even to rid your carpet of stains. To put it simply, it’s a very versatile product that will be sure to cut the time you spend cleaning each week in half – whether that’s cleaning up after yourself, a pet or your kids. Though obviously, this handy vop does come at a price, which is why we’re here to explain why this investment is one you should definitely consider.
For everything you need to know about BISSELL’s new Crosswave Cordless Max Vop, keep reading. Head to our dedicated best vacuum cleaners page for more suggestions.
1. It vacuums and mops at the same time
Not only does the BISSELL Crosswave Cordless Max vacuum and mop your floors simultaneously, but it also semi-dries them so as not to leave your floors soaked to the point you can’t walk on them. This vop also does a pretty decent job at cleaning and sanitising floors, and it’s incredible the amount of dirt and debris that will be left in the cleaning tank. You will be wowed. Also, did we mention that you can use this appliance on hard floors and carpets as well as rugs? Yep – switch between modes by pressing the sun button, just below the power button.
2. It’s great for pet owners
Whether you own a very active dog or an incredibly fluffy cat – perhaps you have a house rabbit? Either way, the BISSELL Crosswave Cordless Max can clean everything from pet mess to pet hair and it can even suck up large debris such as hay. All at the same time of sanitising the area with cleaning fluid. Also, it should leave your floors dry enough for your pets to walk on and inevitably sniff.
3. It’s handy to store in space-savvy homes
Though understandably larger than a stick vacuum, it is smaller – and easier to store – than both a vacuum and mop would be. That being said, it’s also a lot easier to grab, should you be in a hurry or have something that needs to be cleaned pronto, since it rids the need to dig inside your cupboard for two separate floorcare products. It also comes with a stand that charges it, so you’ll need to place it nearby a plug socket, and it comes with storage for its parts, for when you are giving it a clean.
4. It cleans itself
One of the best features about this vop – apart from the fact it’s 2-in-1 – is that it has a self-cleaning mode. Yes, you read that right. Once you’ve done a loop of your house, place this vop back on its charging stand and press the self-clean button directly above the water tank. Watch as the appliance will cleverly use water from the clean tank to clean the brush roll and flush all debris to the dirty tank. From here you need only empty the dirt tank, and pop the brush roll in the tray to dry ready for the next use. It’s really that easy.
5. Parents will love it – it can clean all sorts of mess in one swift motion
If you are a parent, then this vop might just save you a good few minutes every day when it comes to someone dropping their Peppa Pig pasta on the kitchen tiles, jam on toast ending up on your favourite rug or a smoothie that accidentally split all over your hallway carpet. What to do when anything like this happens? Whip out the vop and fill it up with cleaning fluid, go over the mess (including the food if you really just can’t be bothered to clean that up) and it’ll be cleaned in seconds. You’ll definitely find yourself reaching for this vop much more than you would think – especially considering it has a large roller head so that you can clean a larger space, faster.
