The Oreck steam cleaner works great! It generates steam in less than 30 seconds. The tank size is large, more than a quart, so you don't run out of water. It cleans the kitchen tile floor well without leaving excess water on the floor. There should be an extra cleaning pad supplied with the unit, to let you wash one pad and use the other. The only awkward thing is that there is not a convenient way to wrap the excess cord on the unit while it is in use or in storage, otherwise there are no problems. Oreck has a great product!

Defiantly worth the money...works great on floors, walls, counters, stairs, windows, curtains, everything you can possibly clean in your house great product and the attachments actually work.....oh and for the people who wrote in their review that there's no place to put the cord once your done...i don't think you looked at your steamer very well cuz at the top there is a yellow hook and then the bottum hook you pull out of the second handle.

I bought this to steam clean a yoga studio's floors and mats. And purchased this one after returning 2 Haan steam cleaners that broke within a week of their purchase. It's true that you get what you pay for, and while this is not the least expensive, it is sturdy and really produces quite a bit of steam. It has a generous reservoir, and you do not have to pump it to produce the steam, unlike the Shark that I borrowed. I have yet to use any of the attachments, so am unable to comment on that. I did purchase extra head covers through Amazon, because I read an earlier review that said you could use your own cloths, but tried that and if it wasn't close in size and pulled very taught made the steamer hard to manipulate. I like it so much I'm considering buying one for home!
I searched a while before deciding on this particular unit. It has accessories that most others did not include at this price point. I love the fact that you can use your own cloths and not necessarily those from the manufacturer. It was easy to put together and easy to use. I replaced my older model floor mate with this and could tell the difference immediately. Have only used once but so far am thrilled.

I have tile and wood floors, so I can do both in less than 30 minutes. It gets in those tight spots around your toilet and cleans your shower walls. Awesome!

I just moved into a condo with all-tile flooring. Yes, the tile keeps the room cooler than carpeting...but would it be necessary to get down on all fours to clean it?? I ordered the Oreck steam cleaner on my sister's recommendation. Yes, it's a little more expensive than other steam cleaners, but it's true you get what you pay for. The unit is lightweight - ready to use within 2 minutes. Wow - it did a heck of a job! No more grit on my bare feet and the tile has a nice sheen. I am thrilled with this purchase!! (My only wish would be for it to come with a second pad.)
This product cleans my floors so well. It was money well spent. It has tons of uses from cleaning floors to washing windows. I absoulutley love it!!

Unfortunately, I had to replace my first Oreck steam floor cleaner. One too many falls. I purchased a refurbished one the first time but there weren't any available now! Just be careful and don't drop it on a hard surface. Pieces are plastic and can break. But this mop makes floors really clean. I used the attachments to clean the grout too! Had to Purchase a few extra attachments from Oreck to complete that job, but I have over 1000 sq ft of tile. I couldn't believe how much dirt accumulated in the grout. I use mainly for weekly mopping. It's a great cleaner and I won't use anything else now that I have discovered steam mopping.

With 3 dogs it was a struggle to keep our hardwood floors clean. I saw an advertisement for this product and decided to give it a go. It did not disappoint. I use this steamer a lot. My floors look clean and feel clean. I have cleaned the steam generator once due to low steam output. I now use distilled water in the tank. I am very satisfied with this steam cleaner. It is well built, sturdy, easy to fill and easy to use. Love it!!
A very good product for the money. Very easy to use. I was able to clean a very large area thoroughly in a short amount of time. Even though I never allow my floor to get very dirty, I found that to make cleaning more thorough, I needed to change the bonnets so I wouldn't be putting dirt back on the floor...not too difficult to do. Someone mentioned, in a review that I read previously, that you can use your own cloths on the steam head... would be good for this purpose. I used the grout cleaning brushes & found after one use, the brush bristles bent out of shape & probably wouldn't do a good job in a second use. Probably this was caused from steam heat and rubbing...need to be more durable. Maybe that is why there was more than one grout cleaner brush in the box. I found the instruction booklet that came with the product to be extremely lacking. It was very incomplete. Missing were instructions for use of the accessories that came with the cleaner. I had to contact Oreck customer service to get info. They were able to help, but I should not have had to do this. For example, the steamer came with two different types of bonnets...how and for what purpose should each be used? Do you always have to use a bonnet? The instructions mention that the cleaner can be used for carpet, but gives no instruction. With help from customer service, I am able to use this product as intended...it is good & I am happy with it.
This is an excellent product for the money. I purchased this items to clean old tile at our church (kitchen in the Family LIfe Center). I liked that it had a grout tool. Our old tile is white and the grout should be white. When attaching the grout tool and focusing on just grout it cleaned very well. You have to go slower when cleaning the grout but the result was good. Also I wanted to mention for anyone who has never used a steam cleaner....when cleaning hard surfaces that have years of build up from cleaning products there will be a "film" left on the floor. You will need to steam clean 5 to 10 times depending on how old that floor is to get all of that build up. Once you have done that you will be very pleased with the results. Had I not read reviews on steam cleaners this would have been very upsetting to me. I have had this product for several weeks now and gone over this floor many times and it looks great! The church wanted to replace the floor but now I think we will keep it for a while longer. I also love the other attachments. I have cleaned glass, mirrors and even rugs! There are many more expensive steamers on the market but for the money this is the best one that I have used. I have another low cost brand at home but will be getting one of these for home.
I read the reviews did my homework and found this one to be the best of them for the price. What a surprise on how clean the floors are looking after a few weeks of diligence. I did the grout lines first (yea the little brushes melt) but the brushes helped keep me in the groove. I went through three brushes and the grout is almost the same color through out the house. There was a day care in here before I bought the house a few months ago. I steamed the mirrors and not impressed, don't know why I thought it would change anything. But the tile is looking awesome. Use only distilled water, you will be glad you did. Empty the reservior after each use and expect a little dripping so maybe hang it over a sink when finished. Wipe the seals off when changing the steam heads, a small piece of dirt will make a difference on the seal. Plan for a basket or bag for all the little tools that come with it. I have mine still sitting in the box. But am not going to return it so time to find a good place to store it all. Oh it comes with a funnel for filling the water, it is awesome and you don't want to lose it.
I was (apparently) the last of the sponge mop users, and after unsuccessfully trying to find a similar replacement (they just don't make them anymore), and after looking at the currently mops on the market (which look very cheaply made), I looked at steam mops. As always, thanks to the reviewers for the helpful information. If truth be told, the reviews are what sold me on this steam mop. Whether the price is high or not for a steam mop, I don't know. But, this seems like a well made piece of equipment, so to me it's worth the price. It has a large water reservoir, uses tap water and is easy to fill and empty. It heats quickly, the steam flow is easy to adjust and it cools off quickly after use. The attachable cloth mop heads attach easily and securely with clips, and it comes with several attachments (I store them in a messenger bag I got at a conference years ago) to keep them all together. I understand you can buy additional mop heads (from the reviews), but the ones that come with this are well made and should last a long time. You can use this on floor and horizontal surfaces. The large cloth mop head cleans my walls, cabinets, kitchen appliance surfaces and kitchen/bathroom floors fine with one go and then I just toss it in the washing machine (it comes out like new). The mop head gets into most areas, and it cleans well just using steam. You may need chemical cleaner for some really dirty or things or to get into tight spots that the mop won't reach, but I like that the steam cuts down the need for using chemical cleaners. And, surfaces dry almost instantly after cleaning (my bathroom floor tiles have a wavy surface, and after mopping, water would pool in the dips in the tile which took forever to dry...that doesn't happen with this steam mop). I like the hook on the lower handle (you have to look for it and then pull it out) to use to wrap the power cord with along with the top hook. It also doesn't take a lot of space, so storage isn't a problem. There's a window attachment I haven't tried yet, but I want to try it. Otherwise, I really like this appliance.
I love it. It holds enough water to do all my floors without refilling. It heats up in less than a minute and it leaves no streaks on my prego flooring (uses very little water for steam) and cleans my ceramic wonderfully. I love it. Good by hands and knee's I am getting to old for that. :)
I AM SO GLAD I SPENT A LITTLE MORE TO PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT.IT DOES A GREAT JOB AND COMES WITH ALL KINDS OF ATTACHMENTS. I HAVE STEAMED MY SHOWER GLASS WITH IT...CAME OUT SPARKLING!.....I HAVE CLEAN MY LAMINATE FLOORS AND TILE AND WHAT A GREAT JOB THE GROUT BRUSH DOES....LOOKS LIKE NEW AGAIN......LIGHTWEIGHT AND EASY TO OPERATE....LOVE... LOVE ...LOVE IT :)
We are parents of four indoor/outdoor cats. Fortunately, our home has ceramic tile floors. This steamer is very effective in cleaning the floors, which cats can mess up. It also does a great job cleaning the tile shower. Our home smells fresh and sanitary at all times. Conveniently, the water tank is large enough so that extensive areas can be cleaned without refilling it. We are particularly pleased that the product is environmentally friendly, as the various pads are washable and no chemicals are required for cleaning or disinfecting the house. The Oreck replaced a cheaper, lighter, single-function floor steamer, which required the purchase of disposable pads and ultimately wore out in only a few months. In the long run, I believe the Oreck will save money and frustration.
