Deep cleaning and sanitising your floors just got a whole lot easier with this Shark Steam Lite mop. Super lightweight and working with just tap water, this steam mop is cost efficient and chemical free making it an environmentally friendly method of cleaning. With instant steam, cleaning is at your convenience. The 23′ cable and a shapely mop head makes the steam mop ideal for edge cleaning. 2 all purpose pads, a refill jug and an instructions/Padcare guide are included.So far was pretty easy to assemble you really just push this the better of the middle piece into the base here and then the handle goes into the middle piece now there is actually a pretty clever little lift to adjust lever right there and that allows you to shorten or lengthen this handle and really get a to fit you lock it down by pushing down there now on the back the steamer there is cap right here you just twist off the reservoir and pull out and then you go ahead and fill this up to the max line right there and I can tell you that. This is about as much as that holds I’ve actually got a little extra water in there.

The most effective way to use it is regularly, say every 2-3 weeks and following major messes, since it will take a lot of elbow grease to remove months of ground in dirt. However, it can do that if need be. After years of cleaning my parents white linoleum kitchen floors (not a good flooring choice, but we did not choose them), with a swiffer wet mop and yearly hand- and-knees scrubbings, 3 or 4 passes with this got us much closer to white than the swiffer ever did. There are probably more sturdy mops out there, but if you are looking for a cost effective and chemical-free solution, this is a good mop for you.

Final Conclusion:

This mop is good only for small areas and it do a great job. It has a very long cord, which is helpful in cleaning large areas. The water reservoir is a bit small, which requires frequent re-filling, but that’s a small complaint.Cleans nicely. Lightweight, left my tile and wood floors very clean and no streaks.
