What the buyers said...
This is the first time I bought one of these to replace a normal mop and bucket. Very impressed with it so far and it works just as well as a normal mop and bucket would but without the hard effort. Using it is just like useing a hoover. However when you have a really stubborn stain you need to hold the streamer on the spot for several secs in order to losen the strain before it will remove the strain. Which is hardly a effort and better than having to scrub away like I had to with the old mop and bucket
After purchasing and using twice a day for the last few weeks, I can see why they loved it. First of all, the overall build of this mop is very high quality, especially when compared to other steam mops I have had in the past. Its sturdy, solid and every part actually does what it is supposed to. It heats up in a matter of seconds and keeps its steam production throughout.
The Shark has a good sized cleaning area, the steam is continuous even on the HI setting, the pads are machine washable and it is incredibly easy to use.
I was a little apprehensive at first about the cleaning capability, we had some stubborn stains in the grout and on the tiles, after firing up this little bad boy was astonished by how quickly it removed them. It also has the function to fire jets of steam at a certain area of the floor to lift stubborn stains, this element is great on spilled coffee stains. I also purchased some cleaning solution which makes it smell nice too. My next purchase will be a Shark cordless vacuum cleaner
The Shark however, has been an absolute delight. It has a much longer power cord which means that I don’t have to unplug and move when cleaning my large kitchen/dining/family room, it has clips to wind the cord around neatly when not in use, the pad is absorbent and it is easy to manoeuvre (it reminds me a Dyson Ball vacuum), the steam level is adjustable and it feels so much better quality than my old Karcher. I honestly can’t believe the improvement, especially considering it only cost £99.99.
Had a Shark steam mop few years ago, best steam mop on the market. Replaced it with two other throughout the years, they were awful.
This is Quality well worth paying the difference, Plug in and go 30 secs fill with water of course. Easy to use, cleans floors without mess and pools of water, dry in a couple minutes, No Streaks, 3 settings, Long lead.
Conclusion and Rating
Shark have a winner, good price, light to use, robustly made and very reasonable steaming time for the tank size
