This is the 2nd Shark steam mop I ordered through Overstock. My last one was a reconditioned one, and I bought it quite a few years ago. It finally broke. I loved it so much that I looked for it in Overstock and was able to find this very similar, new and improved, one. I ordered it immediately. It worked perfectly just like my last one. I'm very happy with it. Overstock's prices are always better than what I can find else where. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
I had been using the Swifer Wet Jet. It was expensive with all the refills needed. This steam machine is great and easy to use. It is recommended that you use distilled water. I am doing this and it is inexpensive and a gallon lasts a long time. All in all the steam cleaner is much cheaper to use and does a better job with half the effort
It is easy to assemble and easy to use -- heats up quickly - I use it several times a week on my laminate floors to get rid of foot prints and smudges and in the bath rooms too!. I wash and replace the steam pads so they are clean. just add water and plug in and - poof - clean floors . nicely priced on Overstock. Came in Box and wrapped well.
Great mop with good amount of steam. Has a sleeve to cover mop bottom and turns over when you need a clean side. Comes with two mop sleeves. Wash really well. Has a long cord which makes it easy to clean a large area. I use it on tile and laminate.
The team mop honestly saves me so much time cleaning and it's less work then a mop or swifter. When I first used it i had just cleaned a couple days before hand and After using the steam mop I couldn't believe how filthy the pad was. And it dries so fast. Which is great for my 1 year old. One thing I'm not a fan of is the fact that you have to manual flip the mop pad to use the other side: marketing makes it seem like the head flips easily. But other than that the steam mop was well worth it.
Purchased this item as I'm disabled & no longer able to scrub floors the old fashioned way - hands & knees. Store bought mops do nothing but push dirt from 1 corner to the next! Considered over heating & steam cleaning I started small (my mud room). Totally shocked at ease of use. Hands have no contact w/steam. Mop is pushed back & forth the steam is pumped through the motion of the handle. No on or off switch to be concerned about. Fill unit (cup supplied) w/water only! Use good cleaning spray on difficult "dirt" or slippery areas. (Shark has a spray cleaner) and supplies a small snap to hold bottle w/mop unit! DO NOT PUT CLEANER INTO UNIT. WATER ONLY!! Handle styled as circle that allows for disabled joints, hand problems due to arthritis. Amazed, shocked, & well pleased! I hated floor cleaning but since receiving my Shark Steam Mop, I can no longer wait to fill it up & begin mopping. Almost instant dry factor so no need for slippery floors. Highly recommend to anyone with a dirt tracker! ( I have 4 Shelties who love mud).
I love this steamer. The price is right, it's easy to use, easy to store and works wonderfully! Even the kids like to use it. I should have done this years ago - it definitely beats cleaning on your hands and knees. Be sure to purchase extra mop covers if you have more than one room you are cleaning at a time.
