BISSELL gave me a challenge I couldn’t resist. They asked me to test their new BISSELL Symphony™ All-in-One Vacuum and Steam Mop.

I immediately accepted the challenge because I’m always looking for a way to make cleaning easier. Plus, you may recall that I’ve been on a quest to find the best steam mop around. Since the Symphony is a steam mop AND vacuum, there’s a possibility it could top the list. We shall see…

Of course, I had to put it to the test first.

And test I did.

My challenge was to compare the Symphony All-in-One Vacuum and Steam Mop to a traditional broom and mop when cleaning up coffee grounds and orange juice.

how to clean coffee grounds

Cleaning wet coffee grounds with a broom and mop:

My experience cleaning the wet coffee grounds with a broom and mop was fine…you know, kind of what you would expect:

  • I swept up the grounds and put them in the dustpan.
  • I soaked up the juice with a towel.
  • I cleaned the floor with the towel (since I don’t have a traditional mop).
  • I ignored the straggling coffee grounds not picked up by the broom.

It took a few steps but those steps didn’t bother me too much since that’s what I’m used to. 

However, the wet, coffee grounds that filled broom DID bother me. Why? Because cleaning the broom and dustpan added another step the process. Plus, I had to let the broom dry (and of course I forgot it was wet, pulled it out of the closet and tried to sweep up a mess about 45 minutes later).

Cleaning wet coffee grounds with the Symphony All-in-One Vacuum and Steam Mop:

Using the Symphony All-in-One Vacuum and Steam Mop to clean up the wet coffee grounds was a completely different experience. 

  • I turned on the Symphony All-in-One Vacuum and Steam Mop.
  • It suctioned up the grounds and cleaned my floor in less than 10 seconds.

Because the coffee ground mess was cleaned up in such a flash, I decided to clean my entire kitchen floor. All the crumbs shoved under the lower cabinets were suctioned up within seconds and the entire floor was steam moped in the process.

In less than a minute, my kitchen floor was spotless!!

The winner:

Before trying the Symphony All-in-One Vacuum and Steam Mop, I honestly couldn’t figure out how a vacuum/steam mop combo could work. I guess I thought the steam would just make everything a big mess and the vacuum wouldn’t suction enough.

But I was wrong.

The Symphony All-in-One Vacuum and Steam Mop vacuum suctioned the floors next to the walls better than my regular vacuum. At the same time, it cleaned and sanitized the floors.

For those reasons alone, it’s currently #1 on my list of best steam mops!

Thank you BISSELL!
