There’s nothing better than having one or a dozen furry friends running around freely in your home. Except, of course, dealing with the millions of fallen fur that never seems to leave the fibers of your carpets. The good news is that getting rid of pet hair from carpets is completely doable, provided you have the right tools in your arsenal.

BISSELL Cleanview Swivel Pet Upright Vacuum 2252 Review


Ladies and gentles, today, we present to you the right tool – the Cleanview 2252 from BISSELL.

This magnificent upright is made specifically to pick up fallen hair from medium- and long-pile carpeting in an instant, so sit back as we discuss the pure awesomeness that is the Cleanview 2252.

Triple-Action Brushroll

Do you know what’s better than one and two? That’s right – triple-action on the vacuum brush roll. With a triple-helix brushroll, the 2252 works a lot better at loosening, lifting, and removing embedded dirt particles and strands of pet hair from medium- and high-pile carpeting than ever before.

The brushroll bristles rotate gently on all surfaces, leaving tiled and hardwood floors in perfect shape without leaving ugly scratches and gashes.

Scatter-Free Cleaning

The BISSEL Cleanview Swivel Pet comes with two side unpowered side brushes that prevent dirt from scattering all over the place. They ensure that every piece of dust in the vacuum’s path stays in place for the suction inlet and triple-action brushes to pick up and remove permanently.

Edge-to-Edge Vacuuming

The side brushes also work well at bringing dirt from the sides into the suction inlet. This allows you to move the 2252 along edges and in corners, so no speck of dirt is left un-suctioned.

Swivel Neck

Like most uprights, the 2252 uses a swivel neck that lets you roll the vacuum cleaner in between and below furniture, so no part of your floors are left un-vacuumed.

Though a handy feature, we find that the bulky design of the 2252 makes it quite cumbersome to navigate in tight spaces, so we rely heavily on the suction hose and vacuum attachments to clean hard-to-reach areas (more on this later on).

Multi-Cyclonic Filtration

One of the biggest annoyances of using a vacuum cleaner is losing suction power over time. This typically occurs due to the filter being clogged by larger particles.

The 2252 solves this problem by using a multi-cyclonic suction system that separates large from small, keeping the fine-mesh filter as free of debris as possible for longer-lasting high-quality suction performance.

Washable Filter

The multi-cyclonic filter system is removable from the 2252 and washable under a faucet. When the vacuum cleaner eventually loses suction power, simply detach the filter from the system and wash. Allow it to dry completely before reinstalling into the 2252.

Each filter is built to last for up to 6 months, but it depends on how frequently you use the vacuum cleaner and what sort of debris ends up clogging the mesh.

Extendable Hose and Complete List of Cleaning Attachments

To help eliminate dirt from all surfaces of your home, the BISSEL Cleanview Swivel Pet comes with a stretch hose that can easily reach all sorts of above-ground surfaces.

Included inside of the box is an extension wand which adds several inches to your reach, a multi-surface pet cleaning tool for getting rid of pet hair and other embedded debris from upholstery fibers, a dust brush for simple brushing and vacuuming of shelves and tables, a crevice tool for digging deep into cushioning and corners, and a handy stair-cleaning triangle attachment that gets at every speck of dirt on carpeted steps.

Large 1-liter Dustbin

The 2252 has the capacity to hold onto as much as one liter of dirt, hair, and other particles it manages to remove from carpets and smooth floors. The large dustbin lets you work longer during each cleaning session before needing to empty the bin out. A truly convenient feature to have, especially if your home’s floors are several hundreds of square feet wide.

Long 27-foot Power Cord

To add to the already-convenient 2252, this handy-dandy vacuum cleaner uses a super-long 27-foot power cord to draw power from the nearest wall outlet, giving you roughly 2,300 square feet of movement before needing to switch to another outlet.

Better yet, why not use an extension cord that offers maximum maneuverability without needing to switch outlets for an entire floor? It’d be nice if the Bissell 2252 came with an automatic cord rewind.

If you’ve been with us for a while, you should already know that we are diehard fans of most of BISSELL’s products, and the 2252 is no exception. The heavy-duty suction power paired with the triple-action brush and multi-cyclonic filtration system makes this one of the best vacuum cleaners we’ve used in a long time, especially for picking up after balding pets.

We would have loved to see an automatic cord rewind that reels the 27-foot long power cord for storage, but hey – as is, we’re more than satisfied with the BISSEL Cleanview Swivel Pet Upright Vacuum.
