The unique Helix System captures dirt and other debris for even greater performance, whether you’re cleaning carpets or bare floors. It does this by using the internal “ribs” incorporated into the Easy Empty™ Dirt Container to force large dirt particles, dust and other debris down to the bottom of the tank…where they belong! This helps the vacuum to work more effectively, longer. The HEPA Media Filter capture over 99.9% of dust mites, pollen and ragweed. Provides Surround Suction® to clean hard to reach places like baseboards and around furniture. Includes a long reach hose and on–board tools (TurboBrush™, Crevice Tool, and Combination dusting brush) to provide total home cleaning.

I started using the BISSELL Cleanview Helix over three months ago.
When it was delivered the box read “some assembly required”. Which usually means to me – husband required, not this time. I had this vacuum up and running in less than 20 minutes. It was that easy.
By just setting aside my older vacuum (10 yr old Kirby) and making the switch to the BISSELL Cleanview Helix, my regular cleaning routine has been much more productive.
I love how light weight this vacuum is and it’s easy to grip handle helps me take it up and down the stairs. Something I do often since we moved our family room into our basement.
Another feature I use often is the attachments. Perfect for cleaning under the furniture and getting in hard to reach spots and corners. I do find myself wishing the attachment hose was a little longer when I clean the basement window sills. But with a lot of stretching and reaching I get the job done.
I have to admit, I like the bagless system a lot more than I expected. It’s really nice not having to buy or change vacuum bags and the filter is super easy and fast to clean.
Now on to pet hair! We have a beautiful but very lazy Basset Hound that loves to spend most of her time sleeping on the furniture. She sheds year round, so keeping up with pet hair can really be a challenge for us. Her needle like hair has a way of embedding it’s self into the fabric. Not an easy task for a vacuum.
The BISSELL Helix System is doing a great job. There are days I have to go over the same area more than once but compared to the older vacuum I was using, this is a huge improvement.
When we moved our living room couch to the basement family room, I saw this as a opportunity to put the BISSELL Cleanview Helix and its attachments to the test.
The underneath of our couch (that you can never see) had a ton of hair so embedded that my husband’s shock vac wasn’t even coming close to pulling it out.
I used the TurboBrush, going over the fabric in every direction for a good twenty five minutes.
Very happy with the results.
You can purchase a BISSELL Cleanview Helix from BISSELL direct or at local stores like Target and Meijer. In my opinion this is a great machine for an affordable price. Watching for coupons, sales and the option of buying a remanufactured vacuumed, make BISSELL machines available with in just about any budget.
I received this BISSELL Cleanview Helix free from BISSELL Homecare, Inc. — the Company sent this to me and did not charge me for it. I am in no way under obligation to write this review. No type of monetary compensation was received. The opinions expressed are all mine.
