How do I clean my whole home with the Zing?

The Zing Bagless Canister vacuum is a convenient whole-home cleaning system. Its lightweight, compact design makes traveling up stairs with the floor brush easy, especially since the Zing has a carrying handle. You can also attach the extension wand or combination crevice tool/dusting brush to capture dirt and dust from your above-floor surfaces. Variable suction control means that you can turn the suction down and even clean fabrics like curtains.

What is the difference between an upright vacuum and a canister vacuum?

Canister vacuums are low to the ground vacuums that have a long hose with a wand on the end. As you clean through the hose and wand, you pull the canister unit behind you. Upright vacuums stand tall and have a handle, which is used to push the vacuum. When cleaning carpets, the debris is removed through the foot or base of the unit. Most uprights also have a hose and on-board tools, which are typically used for hard to reach places and when cleaning furniture.At one time, canisters were thought to be easier to use for cleaning hard to reach places and for cleaning a larger variety of floors surfaces. However, the uprights of today have added cleaning features, such as bare floor height adjustments, brush roll on/off switches, and are easily maneuverable. In addition, the on board cleaning tools have made upright vacuums even more versatile.Although uprights are easier to use and more effective at cleaning larger areas in the home, they can still be a challenge when cleaning stairs. BISSELL’s Lift-Off offers the benefits of an upright, with a detachable canister that makes it easy to clean stairs and hard to reach places.

Good choice for small areas/hard floors; bagged versions also available I needed a very compact vac to use mainly in the bathroom to clean up after haircuts. I’ve been using a cordless model but lacked the power to get the job done to my satisfaction. So, the hunt began for a compact corded model.I looked at several hand-held units that offered a hose attachment. But, while they would have been fine for counter top work, I would have had to crouch or kneel down to get the floor done. Stick brooms would work fine on the floor, but didn’t have the attachments for counter work.That left a canister. I have several other Bissell products that have worked well, so thought I’d give the Zing a shot. Overall, it’s an excellent product considering the price. The suction power is outstanding – I’d put it on a par with my Panasonic cannister vac that cost much, much more. In fact, the suction is a little too good – it will easily suck up hair cutting attachments if you’re not careful. Zero complaints in terms of power.No complaints…

The floor attachment needs a better design I’ll start by saying this vacuum is NOT for carpets, period. It doesn’t have any kind of beater bar and doesn’t glide over carpet at all. I got this to do quick post-toddler dinner clean ups. The vacuum unit itself has a good design and plenty of suction. It is lightweight and would be great to carry around using the hose itself to clean nooks and crannies, but this ability is limited to nooks and crannies since it is blatantly missing a drapery or upholstery attachment. After going across my hardwood floors it sucked up quite a bit of dirt and lint & I didn’t think my floors were that dirty. My complaint is that the floor attachment needs to be redesigned, which is too bad because it’s primarily why I bought this unit. The part that slides accross the floor is maybe 8 inches wide or so, but really only the middle maybe 2 inches has a hole for suction. The rest of it doesn’t, well, suck. There’s not even an opening for it. I’m not sure why the thing is even 8 inches wide, it could…

This Thing Really Sucks And I mean that in a good way. Everytime I turn this vacuum on, the cat goes running for its ninth life, otherwise it would get sucked in by this vacuum (being a long-haired cat doesn’t help). Seriously, I am really surprised by the amount of suction it has. On smooth floors, there is so much suction I can feel the resistance in pushing the floor attachment because it wants to grip the floor. Now I know why Bissell put a vent on the handle.Don’t understand other posts here commenting on the narrow area of suction on the floor attachment – there is a channel on the bottom of the attachment that goes the full width; it even has small ports on the edges to provide suction along walls. Maybe I got a later model with a redesigned floor attachment. But I will agree with another reviewer that says this unit is better suited for hard floors than carpet due to the lack of a beater bar – but it does work OK on carpet.Unit rolls along on the floor easily, with the…
