Excellent at picking up pet hair. Includes a pet brush. Great if you have allergies. Makes cleaning your steps a snap. Easy clean canister.
After one year I have no complaints about this product at all.
The Bissell Lift off is by far the best vaccuum I have ever owned. I purchased the Lift off about a year ago and it still works just as good as the day I bought it. I have 3 dogs in my home, and the Lift off was made for homes with pets. You will be amazed at the pet hair that you pick up. This is a bagless vac, and I am usually not too happy with the performance of bagless vac's. This one I am extremely happy. I have not had a single problem with the lift off. I'm sure most of you have had the Kirby sales reps come to your home and want to demonstrate their sweepers. They show you everything the Kirby does, and then they want to do the salt test where they put salt down on your carpet and have you use your vac to get up as much salt as you can, then they go over the same salt spot with the Kirby. So I let them do the salt test. I worked for Kirby about 10 years ago. I always thought Kirby had the best vac's until a year ago, when I purchased the Lift off. I asked the sales rep to go over the salt first with the Kirby because I wanted to see how my vac compared to the Kirby. He agreed, and he pulled up a full sheet of salt. We both thought he got all of the salt out of my carpet, but once I went over it with the Lift off, even the sales rep was shocked. I opened up the canister, and the salt I pulled out was unbelievable! So I will tell you my honest opinion of the this vac, it is amazing! I would recommend this to anyone with or without pets. If you have allergies, it will get everything out of your carpets. It also makes using a rug scrubber much easier. I like to know my carpets are clean, and when I scrub my carpets and the water is still dirty I don't feel like I am walking on clean carpets. When I go over my carpets with the Lift off before I scrub my carpets with a carpet scrubber the water is clean. I swear this vac gets the dirt that is on the floor under your carpets. It is amazing! It comes with a pet brush that you can connect to the hose and you can vac your pet. I know all dogs are not the same, but my dogs love it. One of my dogs actually stands infront of me when I am getting ready to vac because she wants me to vac her. I would say this vac is loved by the whole family. I also have a 1 year old son, and as soon as I pull the vac out he comes running over and wants to ride on it. It has the handle on the lift off so he holds on to it and just rides around the whole room with me. This vac also makes doing your steps so much easier. The left off, comes off, and is light, so doing steps is a snap. My daughter who is 8 years old actually asks to vac the steps. How many 8 year olds do you know that want to clean! I would say this is the best product I have ever purchased. I absolutely love the lift off! If you decide to purchase the lift off I'm sure you will be just as happy as I am. This vac gets two thumbs up.
I would recommend the product to anyone who wants to keep their carpets clean and looking new. Use this vac, scrub your carpets with a carpet scrubber, then use this vac daily, and your carpets will look brand new. Absolutely love it!!
