Christina Hall has taught us how to create a beautifully designed space for over a decade – but now she's touching on how we can keep them looking their best, starting with her top cleaning tips.

The real estate expert begins with (arguably) the most powerful tool of all – a vacuum cleaner – specifically the Bissell CrossWave Hydrosteam, which she uses to up after her French bulldog, Cash. 

In an Amazon livestream, Christina suggested it is one of the best vacuums for pet hair, noting that she often uses hers before guests visit her home over the holiday season. 

'I have pets, so as a pet owner, this is very important to me,' Christina says.' We have a Bissell, and we've had it for many years, and it's amazing. All the products are great. Cleaning my home before all my guests arrive is a must.' 

If we're not already tempted enough, this vacuum is enjoying a reduction over this Cyber Monday week, so we can achieve a space as clean as Christina's at a lower price.

This Christina-approved vacuum runs on HydroSteam Technology to offer up to 20% better cleaning on tough, sticky messes (and, in her case, messes caused by pets). It's designed to minimize hair wrap around the brush roll and prevent pet hair tangles and its formula eliminates 99.9% of bacteria around our home. 

As mentioned, Christina isn't the only figure who rates this vacuum so highly. Our product tester Aleenah Ansari rated it 5/5 stars – noting that the appliance offers 'wet and dry perfection.' But what sets this vacuum aside? 

During her test, Aleenah noted that the Bissell CrossWave is able to clean up stains and messes more deeply than a vacuum alone since it steams and mops at once. This means it is great for both hardwood floors and carpets – the latter of which is notorious for pet hair. 

Additionally, the vacuum is relatively light and has an integrated carrying handle and tray, making it easy to move around and store when the cleaning is complete. It also has a headlight that's helpful for dark corners and bathrooms.
