Whether we’re talking tile, hardwood, or laminate, all floors have one thing in common: dirt. And if you’re looking for something to tackle all that muck, nothing cleans like steam. Thankfully, the folks at Shark figured that out and made their high-quality Handheld Cleaners Steam Mop not only effective at getting all that grime without using harsh chemicals. but easy to operate and affordable as well. You can find it right now on Amazon for just $69.99 (normally $89.99), which is an amazing bargain to get even the dirtiest floors sparkling clean in minutes. Don’t quite believe in the power of steam yet? I’ll bet that over 18,000 five-star reviews will change your mind.
So what makes reviewers call this mop a “game changer?” Certainly, the fact that steam kills 99.9 percent of bacteria without harsh chemicals is a major selling point. But, as one reviewer notes, it’s the effective microfiber pads that pick up dirt “instead of turning it into mud and pushing it around” like a regular wet mop that really makes the Shark (and your floors) shine. And that dirty water bucket? Ew, goodbye. The pads pick up everything, don’t need to be constantly wrung out, and can be used on both sides for extended cleaning time. Bonus: They are machine washable and reusable.
Users love how easy it is to operate this mop. Just fill the water compartment, plug it in, and in just 30 seconds you’ll be steam powered and ready to go. The Shark has swivel steering, so you can hit those hard-to-reach kitchen corners and muddy entryways. Lots of happy customers also praise the extra-long cord that enables them to go room to room without stopping, as well as how quickly floors dry after use. Simply put by another reviewer, “you let the mop do all the hard work.”
If you’re still on the fence about whether something so simple, easy, and inexpensive can really clean your floors, take it from one reviewer who compared it to the professional cleaners that they’d recently hired. “No disrespect to the cleaning service because they did their best, but this mop pulled up the ground-in dirt and grime that a traditional mop couldn’t hope to touch.” Better and cheaper than a professional? Plus, no harsh chemicals? Sold.
