Bissell Launches New Pet-Focused Cordless Vacuum

Bissell is expanding its assortment of floor care products with the launch of its ICONpet high-powered cordless vacuum.

According to the company, the unit’s digital motor turns up to 420 miles per hour, has three power modes that allow the vacuum to be used on a variety of flooring surfaces and its lithium battery provides up to 50 minutes of cordless cleaning.

“Shedding is a part of our pets’ lives, but that doesn’t mean pet parents have to sacrifice a clean living space,” said Meghan Johnston, brand manager at Bissell. “With ICONpet cordless, we’re freeing pet parents from the hair struggle by providing a premium floor care solution.”

Among the features of the new vacuum is a tangle-free-brush tool; specialized tools including a motorized turbobrush, LED lighted crevice tool and dusting brush; dirt cup with CleanSlide Technology; a 22V lithium-ion battery; and SmartSeal Allergen system said to trap dust and allergens inside the vacuum.

Bissell officials also said with each purchase of the new vacuum the company will make a $25 donation to the Bissell Pet Foundation, which covers the adoption fee for a shelter pet.
