Much easier than the old mop and bucket of hot water
I had a steam mop a very long time ago and hated it as it sputtered and left sopping wet patches everywhere. However I decided to try a steam mop again after hearing my daughter sing its praises.
I figured enough time had passed for the technology to have improved and it couldn’t be worse than the wring or squeeze mops right? Plus, I could not find replacement sponges for my squeeze mop and didn’t want to buy a whole new set.
After reading reviews on this site and looking through forums, I decided on the Black and Decker steam mop for 2 reas...ons - the steamer snapped out to convert into a handheld and it came with a steam mitt attachment. It also seemed good value as it packed with a whole lot more accessories than other models and brands. (See photo below). Assembly out of the box was intuitive and simple, basically slot and click. The plastic components seemed sturdy and together with the aluminium handle (pole?), it made for a light contraption even with the 500ml water tank filled. Weight is an important consideration for me as I’m a petite flyweight. The wire length was adequate and the steam unit was easy to unsnap from the holder to fill the water tank straight from the faucet. Unfortunately, the water tank did not have a maximum fill marking, so I used a measuring jug for my first fill to check out what the maximum fill level would look like for future reference.
Mop til you Drop
Bought this item for my Daughter for Christmas 2019 as she had just moved into a Rental interstate. What an awesome light weight easy to use Steam Mop. Great Cord Length with a great size mop head to get into the corners. Water container holds a good amount of water and she can get the unit mopped in one go. Great Steam Force and the Floors and Tiles come up CLEAN. Best Product Ever.
The attachments are very good, love them BUT once the body is pulled out of the floppy white tube which delivers steam to the floor foot - that is it. Don't ever expect the nozzle with the steam to fit back into the white tube. What duffers.... So - you have to decide if you want a mob, or a hand steamer - this strikes me as being against the consumer law - you imply that it can be used as either.
Mop is ok, all the other accessories are not so useful
Bought this expensive model because it came with all the other accessories, but they are pretty useless. Used SteamIt hand pad to clean the kitchen bench and tap, didn't do a good job at all and left water marks on the tap. So now back to traditional sponge and chemicals. Tried the steam head on my hair straightening brush and left the bottom very clean but left out the teeth. Mop seems a slight improvement compared to the traditional mop. Works better on tiles and stones. When on maximum heat it left the floor a bit wet. And no it doesn't clean the grout. There is a brush for grouts if you want to get on to your hands and knees, Haven't tried using it yet.
