Bissell 2747A PowerFresh Features and Specifications

Bissell 2747A PowerFresh is a corded unit featuring 25 feet (~7.6m) long power cord and digital controls that enable the user to use Bissell 2747A PowerFresh as:

  • Steam Mop
  • Bare Floor Vacuum
  • Steam Mop and Bare Floor Vacuum combined.

Also, it features an additional steam trigger - all these functions allow the user to customize cleaning as needed quickly.

main cleaner head

The main cleaner head features a detachable steam mop pad tray, allowing the user to change steam mop pads quickly - thanks to the vacuum function, heavily soiled floors don't get steam mop pads dirty as quickly as they would when cleaned with ordinary steam mops.

Also, the main cleaner head ensures that the dirt is vacuumed before the steam mop gets the floor surface slightly damp - the dirt is collected in the transparent dirt cup, which can be easily emptied in the trashcan.

The main cleaner head features a cleaning path of 11 inches (~28 cm), ensuring quick cleaning with fewer passes of large areas.

To help with the edge cleaning, the unit also comes with edge bristles.


Controls are on the handle, easily accessible during cleaning.

Bissell 2747A PowerFresh weighs 9.74 pounds (~4.4 kg), and as such, it is heavier than a typical steam mop - but it vacuums and steam mops simultaneously, justifying a weight increase more than enough.

The water tank capacity is 12.8 ounces, which is, on average, enough for 13 minutes of cleaning.

The use of distilled or, at least, demineralized water is highly recommended to prolong the life of Bissell 2747A PowerFresh and to prevent leaving streaks and water marks on the cleaned floors, especially in areas with hard water.

scented demineralized water

Also, Bissell offers scented demineralized waters in various scents like Citrus, Eucalyptus Mint, and Spring Breeze, which leave a pleasant scent after cleaning.

If You don't like to use scented demineralized water, Bissell also offers scented discs, which are placed inside steam mop pads, while steam cleaning is done using ordinary distilled or demineralized water.

mop pads

Bissell 2747A PowerFresh comes with one soft microfiber mop pad and one scrubby microfiber pad, both of which may be combined with different levels of steam mop.

Generally, a soft mop pad and low steam settings are used for everyday cleaning and cleaning of sensitive sealed floors, while a high steam setting is used, especially with a scrubby steam mop pad, for cleaning sticky messes and cleaning surfaces that tolerate hot steam well, like glazed tiles, marble and similar.

Thanks to all these features, Bissell 2747A PowerFresh not only cleans bare floors but also sanitizes them, killing up to 99.9% of various bacteria, viruses, and germs.

Bissell 2747A PowerFresh Maintenance

Bissell 2747A PowerFresh is relatively simple to use and maintain, but when it arrives, it is highly recommended to read the manual thoroughly in order to get accustomed to your new unit.

The most important maintenance tasks include:

  • replacing the dirt steam mop pad with a new, clean one and washing the dirty ones,
  • adding distilled or demineralized water to the water tank,

Note: Bissell offers several similar steam mops&vacuums combos, which differs from Bissell 2747A mostly in the default list of available steam mop pads and scented distilled water (for example, Bissell 1132) or the fact that the unit is designed to use disposable mop pads (for example, Bissell 1543A).

bissell 2747a mLong Story Short: Bissell 2747A PowerFresh enables the user to vacuum and steam mop at the same time large areas, saving time, money, and, most important, effort.

Steam mop pads are machine washable, and the foam air filter is also hand washable, keeping the maintenance expenses to a minimum.

Although the use of tap water is possible, it is highly recommended to use demineralized or distilled water - they leave no streaks on the floors during cleanings.

Because of all these reasons. Bissell 2747A PowerFresh is one of the most popular vacuums&steam mops on the market.
