Bissell 20Q9 CleanView II Plus Upright Bagless Vacuum Review
The Bissell 20Q9 CleanView II Plus Upright Bagless Vacuum is an upright vacuum model that utilizes the popular “bagless” feature. A clear plastic bin collects all vacuumed matter together for easy disposal rather than requiring special vacuum bags that need replacing. A bright headlight assists in illuminating dark corners and the unit features an innovative carpet sensor that turns from red to green once a surface is properly cleaned.
Seven different height settings allow this model to maintain the optimal distance between the rotating brush and the surface. Carpet, wood, or vinyl flooring all require tailored settings to achieve the correct performance, making the number of variable heights featured in this model particularly helpful. The head is a full 15 inches in width, providing a wider than average cleaning profile that cuts down on both time and effort.
Several onboard tools assist in cleaning areas not easily reached by the full unit. A crevice attachment makes cleaning under low furniture simple and is ideal for removing matter between couch cushions. The onboard tools also include a TurboBrush that effectively cleans drapes, stair steps, and hard-to-reach areas utilizing a rotating head. There is also an extension attachment and dusting brush. The flexible hose is reinforced with metal wire for added durability.
The unit also features a built-in HEPA filter that traps dust particles, pollen, and tiny pollutants, eliminating up to 99% of airborne allergens while contributing to a cleaner indoor environment than floor vacuuming alone provides.
Weighing in at around 21 pounds, the Bissell 20Q9 CleanView II Plus Upright Bagless Vacuum features solid construction while still being light enough to maneuver under and around large furniture pieces. A 27-foot power cord increases the cleaning radius and cuts down on the necessity of switching outlets. The motor is a full 12 amps, making this model powerful enough to pick up larger spilled materials such as pet food, along with everyday dust and dirt. Bissell also provides a one-year warranty for service and parts.
