Can the shark be used on laminate floors?
I'm cleaning houses and condos and I'm absolutely LOST without my steamer. I use the vacuum as well as the steamer daily in very big houses and condos and found it the best buy I've ever made. To me it is not once a week or once every second week in my own place - it is every day and sometimes 7 days a week. Wish I could afford 2 to give each one a break now and then! No buckets of water and dirty mobs. My clients love the clean smell and I use it on tile as well as wood floors. Thank you Shark! My Shark vacuum got stolen and I only had it for about 2 months but I'm saving for a new one again....

I purchased this product brand new from BJ's and it was great for a while. The vacuum was always terrible; it makes such a loud high pitched noise that I couldn't bear to use it, and it had crappy suction when I did use it. But the steam mop part of it was awesome; much better than other models I've used. However, about a year after purchase, the steam mop stopped working and would just sputter and not produce steam properly. I took it apart (no easy feat) to find the hose that connected the heating element to the place the steam comes out was split open at the end. Luckily it had enough excess length of the hose that I could trim the broken section off with a knife and reattach the unbroken portion of the hose. That worked for another 4 months or so, but then it broke again. This time it just does nothing. I haven't yet taken it apart to investigate what is broken now. Overall, I payed about $$$ for this thing and it broke twice in less than 1.5 years of ownership, and not because of abuse, just because internal parts fail after use. Not worth the money, especially because the vacuum is worthless.Read More

I love this Vac then Steam. I have 100 year old light oak floors throughout my house and have used it many times and been completely satisfied. Unfortunately the steam part of the unit died yesterday so I'm at this site to find another. It lasted less than a year.Read More

Questions & Answers
We do not recommend using this on laminate floors. Excess water absorption can cause laminate to warp or buckle, and once this happens, repair may be impossible.
is this safe to use on hardwood floors?
It can be used on multiple hard flooring surfaces that include certain sealed hardwood floors, but it's not recommended for use on unsealed hardwood floors. It's also not meant for cleaning no-wax flooring, as the steam can penetrate the floor and cause boards to crack. In addition, the Shark Steam Mop, not unlike other steam mops, can leave streaks and sheen on un-waxed floors
