Cleaning pad rolling over.
As you push forward the front of the pad rolls and makes it very heavy to move. Are there any solutions to this? We use a freshly washed pad and it still occurs. Other than this we are quite happy with our Monster.
Perfect steam mop as it is real monster for cleaning excellent floors.
It is excellent steam mop with 130 degree hot. This is my third steam mop. Last one was Vax. It is required to fill up water second time at time of moping because of large house. It take about 900 ml water for complete tile area at my place and just half an hour. No need of any filter replacement or chemicals required. I am using original steam mop pads once it is being used original which came with machine. It keeps floor dry very fast. I always empty water tank after each use. Then fill up 550 ml water instead of 600 ml as per manual. If you follow this method then no need to worry overpressure on tank or maintenance issues in the future. I am using this since 3 years.
Love my steam mop
Most weeks I can mop my home on one tank, my floors dry very quickly, I can uselly mop my home only having to change the pads once, if the cord was a couple of metres longer it would be great.
Thank you for a great mop it makes my life a very happy one, couldn't live without it.
Best Steam Mop
I was surprised that this mop has been discontinued since it wasn't sold as that. It does a much better job than several other brands that I've had. The best feature is that is the very quick drying time meaning it can be sued on cold days. I have to fill the tank twice to clean my home which has a large proportion of tiled floors.
2 years, still going strong and very impressed
Great machine that does an excellent job on my porcelain floors, leaving them shiny and glossy. I use the monster every week and it sure beats using the variety of mops I've tried over the years. My floors dry within seconds in warm weather, maybe a bit longer in colder weather. It's easy to manoeuvre. I've got 2 pads but generally only have to use one. If there's dirt stuck to the floor I usually give this spot a spray of metho before I start cleaning and by the time I get to this spot it's soaked and ready to come clean. Very happy with the monster.
Hate it. Doesn’t lift anything off the floor unless you go over literally 50+ times.
Cost $229. We have had it in total about 5 years but only use it every 2nd week. Alternate with a mop and bucket which is so much more efficient. To clean any mark off the floor I have literally gone over it back and forth about 50 times and in the end scrubbed it off. It was a bit of carott peel less than the size of a currant.
Great value! i love my steam mop
Love the quick heating up, long usage with little water for cleaning (40min?), quick and easy to use, quick drying on floors, happy with the cleaning!
Improvements: the cord could be longer, its hard to get into small spaces because of the size of the head,
on a side note: the mop pads stops sticking after a couple of usages and curls up when moping (although have found a substitute product on ebay which is way better than the actual monster brand quality!)
Great so far, just used it for first time
Just did me tiles in three rooms and hall, I did it very slowly over my large areas, i noticed it dried quickly, and tiles have some cracks it made them look less getting the grime out of smaller cracks, took marks off the edge next to walls (remember i did this very slow and spend alot of time, each time now will be general mop). had to refill alot but that is probably because of how much time i spent slowly. will try the carpet thingo another day. don't like the the refill part the hole is tiny but always had a hand towel with me to wipe any ...drips pouring, heated up in about 3 mins each time. I reviewed heaps of these mops and they all have pro's and con's.... so i will review again after i do carpet and floor a few more times. wish they had longer cords but none of them do for the size of my place. Oh had marks on tiles from the chairs, I wen't over it several times very slow and wow all gone! thought the marks were permanent! so far so good. wish they all came with bigger water tanks but they all seem to be standard in size. February 20th 2017 Update: ok as per previous review i have now tried it on the carpet Barely has any effect on the spot carpet stains (one of the reasons i picked this one) may sanitize carpet but against directions i took of the plastic frame and then the pad to try on older rug i didn't care about with a new cat puke mark, barely does anything. I have a carpet shampoo thing so not too worried just thought i could do spot stains after mopping all the tiles once a week..... nope not gonna happen.....so forget it on carpet for anything else than sanitizing.
Fanatastic mop. So easy to use and maintain. Streak free clean, no chemicals needed just pure steam. Been using it for now nearly 2 years. couple of improvements needed. There should be a better way to gauge the water level especially when we are filling it up. Second, the replacement microfibre pads should be a bit cheaper.
Other than that - it is too good.
Great mop but poorly made.
The mop cleans well but the catch to lock in the pole when extended keeps coming undone so the pole keeps shortening during use which is highly annoying. I would probably buy a better known brand next time around. The water reservoir always bubbles over when filling even when the tank is not full.
Does exactly what is says. Cleans hard floors. I use it on our living/dining/kitchen and it works just fine. Very easy to use. Leaves no residue or streaking. Floors are like new. Really cannot fault it. As a bonus it freshens up our rugs too. One tank does the whole floor and the cord is long enough to reach everywhere.
What a great run we had with this model.
Our great run of some five years of fairly constant use ended abruptly with an electrical short in the cord right near my hand!! Thank goodness for circuit breakers! I must say that the response I received from Denise at the 1800 number was professional and empathetic - as a result, we have now purchased a refurbished EZ1R. Thank you Denise you are a valuable point of contact for your company.
I have had my blue steam mop for 7 years so yes I love it. But also find the pad are a pain as they do fold over, however recently I tried washing them in a laundry washing bag, have found the Velcro lasts longer and they don't fold over as quickly. Peg on the line longways. Helps.
Rubbish does not work
I purchased this mop and wondered why the sales lady kept asking if my carpet washer does hard floors, all the hype about steam mops is lie, I now use a mop and bucket or for scrubbing my carpet washer.
Don't buy this mop or complain to the company they both a waste of time.
Too Many Design Flaws
Like many other people who've purchased this below par product, there are way too many design flaws which should've been picked up before going into production, thus causing the user too much frustration when undertaking the usually straight-forward job of mopping ones floors. The cap to close the water tank is way too fiddly to take off and on; no water gauge and a pain to tip excess water away; the cloths for hard floors constantly fold under themselves, thus not producing a smooth movement so the mop does not glide easily over the floors as...it promises to. I avoid cleaning my floors purely because using this steam cleaner is so challenging due to the discomfort it causes the user. The cloths were supposed to last a couple hundred uses according to the sales guy who recommended it; I've probably used them both a dozen times and they're constantly folding over - a pain in the rear.
A Wizard of a steam cleaner !!!
This really is a great machine that takes the effort out of cleaning hard floors. The Monster leaves no streaks and floors are dry in no time at all. It is priced much lower than some of the other so called " professional " cleaners which i have also used and have been a real let down. The Monster is easy to use, has a long cable and a steam burst to get under furniture and into awkward corners. It also has a carpet attachment to refresh your carpets !! I Highly recommend this machine it's a marvel..!!

Questions & Answers
Can I use this steam mop on laminate wooden floors?
Yes you can use the Euroflex Floor Steamer (model EZ1R or SC1z1) on laminate floors…..the steam output on the Euroflex Floor Steamers is drier than conventional steam mops. Only a light film of moisture is left on the floor, that dries quickly so that no damage to floors occurs. There is no heavy pools of water left on the floor like conventional steam mops. With laminate floors I would recommend the model SC1z1 found in Harvey Norman stores because this model has an extra moisture reducing hot plate which is more suitable for water sensitive floors like laminates.
Please follow the filling instructions to ensure you do not overfill the boiler for worry free cleaning. Feel free to call our Customer Support Line on 1800 66 38 66 for any more questions.
Hi, how much does a new handle cost, as mine has broken the plastic up the top of the handle?... thanks...
HI Pamela, sorry for the late reply, we seem not to have received this question. Please call our Customer Support Line on 1800 66 38 66 for assistance. For ease of reference our Customer Support number is found on a grey sticker on the unit, please call us anytime for assistance.
I have recently had my timber floor sanded and treated with Rubio oil apparently used all over Europe.
I have been told to use water in a microfibre mop.
Is it possible to use my Monster Floor steamer as i know it leaves less water on the floor?
HI Heather, I would recommend not too....you are correct, there is less moisture on a Monster Floor Steamer…..but in this case I think the heat from the base may strip away the oil. If the oil is a natural coating or if it is something that you need to apply regularly (that is not a permanent coating) then I suspect the heat may strip the oil away. The Floor Steamer is designed to clean floors with a permanent seal. Oils, waxes, polishes do not withstand the heat from the floor steamer. The heat is necessary to soften dirt and grime on the floor.
