Do you have a steam mop?

Samantha - posted on 08/26/2009 ( 2 moms have responded )




The Shark Info commercial has gotten the best of me and I am interested in getting a steam mop. I like the idea of reusable mop heads and no chemicals. I'm just looking for reviews on different steam mops. If you could answer a few or all of the following.

What type of steam mop do you own?

How long have you owned your steam mop?

How often do you use it?

What type of flooring do you use it on? (I have different types and would like one that can be used on all types)

Can you do baseboards?

Do you have to use distilled water or can you use tap?

Does it leave the floor wet?

How well is it built?

Are there attachments? If so how well are they built.

What are the pros?

What are the cons?

Anything else I should be aware of.

I have a steam mop and love it. I have a 9 month old and it makes me feel the floor is extra clean for him. I have had the steam mop for 12 months use it on tiles and floating floorboards. Can use tap water in it. I use it 3-4 times a week cos of bubs. Does not leave the floor wet. No attatchments but it is built ok nothing special as I got it free with my vacuum cleaner but it definately does a good job. Would like to have one with attatchments though. Oh it is a black and decker nothing special so a bigger brand would probably be great. Hope this helps

I have a shark steam mop and I love it I have had it for about a year now and I will never use a regular mop ever agian it seems like my floors are so much cleaner. I just did my baseboards today. It says to use distilled water but i have always used tap and it works the same. The floors are wet for a minute but not as long as they are when u use a mop. I have hard wood floors and tile and it works great i would recomend it anyday
