Powerfully yet gently clean hardwood, tile, and other delicate flooring types with the Bissell 1161 Hard Floor Expert Deluxe Canister Vacuum. Lightweight and compact, this unit’s vacuum head features soft bristles for gently removing dirt from hard floors. Onboard tools and variable suction control allow this bagless vacuum to also delicately clean furniture, draperies, and upholstery.
The lightweight canister and rubber wheels make this a good vacuum for hardwood floors. Weighing only nine pounds, you can either carry the vacuum as you clean or have it roll on the floor. It runs comparatively quieter than most vacuums at only 82.5 decibels.
The vacuum has a 16-foot power cord, which limits how much you can clean before having to change plugs. However, it retracts by the push of button, which eliminates the hassle of winding up the cord. The cord retracts into the base of the unit, which makes storing it easy. While the cord limits how far you can vacuum, the floor brush spans ten inches across, which helps you cover more surface as you vacuum.
A 7-amp motor powers the bare floor vacuum. In comparison to similar models, this vacuum has a less powerful motor. Despite the small motor, the vacuum still has strong suction and effectively picks up particles off your floors.
The vacuum comes with several cleaning tools that you can attach to its eight-foot hose. The onboard tools include a dusting brush, crevice tool, telescoping extension wand and low-pile carpet tool. Each attachment helps make the machine versatile and effective on different floor types and cleans the hard floors like an electric broom.
