If you are in the market for a new upright vacuum cleaner that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, BISSELL CleanView Helix 95P1 Bagless Upright Vacuum can be a good alternative.
Bissell continues to produce well thought and designed vacuum cleaners and the CleanView Helix 95P1 is a new example of this successful production process. One of the first things that we liked about this vacuum was the Helix system that is innovative and very effective in protecting the filters. The system works with internal separators that do not allow large particles and debris to go into the filter and stores those large particles directly in the dustbin. This ingenious method protects the filter from clogs, minimizing the need for cleaning it and effectively prolongs the life of the filter.
BISSELL CleanView Helix 95P1 Bagless Upright Vacuum Pros and Cons
Pros: Some of the notable features we love about this vacuum are its: Powerful suction, good on carpets and bare floors Lightweight, innovative Helix system protects the filter and it’s easy to clean
Cons: There are a few downsides to CleanView Helix 95P1 as well and some of it are as follows: There is no light (but honestly, we don’t expect it at this price), the cord is a bit short (but not too short, just shorter than a few other models) and it does not automatically rewind. But we can tolerate these setbacks as the price is too good for this level of suction power.
What we have seen was that the 95P1 performed well both on bare floors and carpets. We wished the cord was a bit longer, but 27′ is not too short either. And the vacuum makes up for this small glitch with powerful suction. Like we mentioned, it performs very well on area rugs, small rugs, and bare floors, removing anything that comes in its way. Even if it’s not marketed as a “pet” vacuum, BISSELL CleanView Helix 95P1 also does a very good job in removing pet hairs, no matter how thick or how deep in your carpet they are.
The ease of assembly, use and cleaning are also there. You just need to screw in the handle and attach the hose. The dustbin and the filter are very easy to remove and clean. The HEPA filter is also high quality (it conforms to highest HEPA standards) and very successful at blocking allergens. The attachments are also nice (there is a crevice tool, an upholstery brush, and a hose extension). Although it is not auto-adjusted like some other models (including some Dyson models), the height control is easy to use and intuitive.
Anyway, if a lightweight, well-made, powerful vacuum cleaner is what you are looking for, and if you are on a budget, BISSELL CleanView Helix 95P1 Bagless Upright Vacuum can be a very good choice indeed.
