UPDATE a week on from my review I’ve been contacted by Haan who offered a discount on a new unit. So not all bad.
2.5 years old and used about 12 times. It has stopped working and so it seems have the phones at Haan P/L. I won't buy another Haan product not so much because it failed but because the company failed to provide any support.
Purchased in July 2018 at Haan for $200.00.
I had the Haan for 6 years based on fortnightly usage. It finally stopped producing steam after 6 years (even with routine descaling) as the steaming unit seemed to stop heating up. The plastic bits cracked and fell off the mop head maybe 2 years ago but the Haan kept going. In the last 6 months however the steam didn't feel as hot as it should have anymore but it still kept going, albeit not as cleanly as it used to. What I most liked was the 270 degree articulated head which meant it could go under furniture and into tight spaces. I liked tha...t the steaming unit was on the body rather than the steam mop head, so it was light to lug around. However this steaming unit made it terribly unbalanced and the whole thing would always come crashing down on my floor if I didn't prop it properly against something; that's probably what cracked off bits of plastic over time. If not for the previous reviewer about the non-existent customer service and that the mop technology hasn't been updated in 7 years, I would buy another unit.

Don’t trust the reviews
I purchased this steam mop after canvassing as many reviews as possible. Yes it does a good job - steam power, good cloths, long cord length and quiet operation. However, a) the water tanks are made of the most brittle plastic imaginable and do not last more than 6 months whether in use or not, they’re basically a stiffer plastic bag, guarantee you will be buying replacements (note: the tank lids are sold/charged separately) and b) when I needed a replacement tank they were out of stock with no ETA and they were unreachable, I literally waited 18 months. You’re better off with a normal mop and using hot water.

Great but after 3 years the plastic broke around the nozzle which is not fixale
I could do kitchen and bathrooms no problems. Great cleaner but for 3 years worth it is a little steep in price. Did a better job than just a mop and bucket.
Good while it lasted, but company has vanished without a trace.
Purchased this steam mop in Dec 2014. Probably used it no more than 10 times in total. It has recently stopped working. Tried to phone Haan to get it serviced but Haan's website contact details lead to dead ends. The NSW phone number has been disconnected and the website's listed Queensland and Melbourne offices no longer deal with HAAN products (and haven't for years). The Queensland office reported similar customer complaints from other NSW customers who were trying to get in contact with HAAN.

Great mop, had for 2 years
I have had this mop for two years, and used on wood veneer, tiles, and polished floorboards, all of which it did well. I am looking at replacing the mop pads, as they seem to push the bigger bits of fluff and dirt around, but that would be expected because it can't suck them up anywhere!
I've also used the steam function on a floor stain, and it worked fairly well, although this isn't the purpose I bought it for.
The long cord is useful, and at 160cm and fairly small, I don't find the mop hard to use or push. I have had no technical issues at...all, so pleased. I've never used another steam mop, so have no comparison, but it cleans most spills and dried on stickiness (our family has five kids under ten!) really easily - sometimes you have to let it sit 3-4 seconds, or go over it, but it's not any harder than a usual mop, and then it dries quickly so the kids can go back to messing it up! I've never had to refill the water tank while mopping the floor of a three bedroom house, although bedrooms were carpeted, so I can easily mop about 10 minutes without a refill.

Adequate but far from great
Cleans okay but takes a few goings over with the mop. There is not much steam power and the mop stays quite dry for a while. I would prefer more steam power. It still works fine one year after purchase but for my next steam mop won't buy this one again, prefer to try another brand.
Purchased in June 2019.
Cleans well but Fragile
Purchased in Jan 2017 and have used 1-2 time per week since then.
-Cleans well - Tiled floor feel nice and clean and dries quickly.
-Good long cord length
-Despite small water tank cleans house of 60+ sqm of tiled floor
-Good (not excellent) support
-Ability to decouple the steaming unit from the floor mop handle/head is a nice touch
-Fragile - floor mop head cracked and broke after about 12 months - needed replacing
-Feels 'clunky' - Awkward to maneuver, my wife who is petite simply cannot use it
Purchased in January 2017 for $219.00.
Mediocre while working and heating electrical burnt out
It was looked after and had an easy life on a new tiled floor but was never as good as a bucket and mop, only used it for interval cleans The notion of a small pad cleaning a whole floor never really made sense and the floor never felt as clean as it could. More like a warm rag really One day the heater element just started to burn making it electrically unsafe and beyond economic repair, I’ve not replaced as I never felt a repurchase of this was justified,
Purchased in October 2017 for $280.00.
TRIBBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE
I received a steam mop with a missing part. I contacted HAAN customer service. My request# is 2810 which is open for one year with NO RESPONSE. I don't think that it is a proper way to treat the customer.
Purchased in June 2018.
Robust good working steam cleaner
Although the water tank is only 240 cc it seems to last a long time. The floor is left just a little damp after cleaning but dries very quickly, especially comparing to the water left by my previous steam cleaner. The pad doesn’t get soaked quickly, it is thick and sturdy. The cord length is 7.5 meter, which is long in comparison to most other steam cleaners that I have found. Further more this steam cleaner is tall, and prevents you to having to bend over, it is a very robust and attractive looking machine, but the biggest benefit is the conti...nuous steam production, you don’t need to push and hold a button to produce bouts of steam, it streams consistently and continuously. With all floors in the house being tiled, this steam cleaner is an asset. The only drawback so far is that it doesn’t stand up by itself well.

Do not waste your money on this product.
Unstable unit falls over all the time.
Only cleans half the dirt off the floor, as wells leaving streaks and smudge marks behind and lines on the floor where the mop starts and finishes.

Piece of Junk - & Haan don't honour warranty
After only 6 months my steam mop stopped working. It appeared to work but no steam was coming out, only dripping water.
The 'money back' period is only 30days, so I had to organise for Haan to fix it. After a few emails back and forth, they stopped replying. It appears to me that they are trying to drag the situation out past the 12 month warranty so they don't have to deal with it.
Do not buy this piece of Junk!

A Good easy to use Steam Mop
I was after a steam mop which did not leave excess water on the floor, this model is not only easy to use, it cleans well and leaves only minimal water which quickly drys.

Questions & Answers
Will the Haan steam mop work on rough outdoor patio tiles?
hi. it is hard to comment on rough surfaced tiles as ultra-microfiber pad might not be able to glide on.
Streamer starts and then stops.Is there a salution
You haven't given us much of a description of the problem (ie how old is the device? when did the fault start? Does the power turn on and then off or is it just the steam that starts then stops? How long does it work for before it 'stops' etc). Without more information it makes it difficult to provide much assistance. However, you may want to try the following;
1. Remove the handheld steamer unit from the floor mopping housing and handle.
2. Fill the water tank with water and place back into the steamer unit.
3. Plug the unit into a power outlet and press the power button on the top of the unit - a light should illuminate.
Note: When you first turn on the device you should hear a clicking sound for approx 20 seconds while the device is warming up (this is normal). After approx 30 seconds the clicking noise will stop and you should be able to easily detect steam coming from the nozzle of the device.
If the device will not turn 'on', OR turns 'on' BUT no steam can be detected coming from the device then it sounds like a faulty unit and should return it to HAAN for repair/replacement.
hi. please send email to email@example.com for further assistance. thanks
When it is turned on it heats up and steams for a few minutes then turns itself off. After a while it starts up again but once more it only steams for one or two minutes before tuning off. your suggestion please.
Hi, I need replacement water tank caps, they just keep breaking! When can we expect your stock to come in please?
I no longer have my mop.
I gave it to the Good Samaritans.

Points of Praise
- Most reviewers found that this HAAN Floor Steamer cleaned floors effectively and reliably.
- The 7.5-metre long cord was highly appreciated by reviewers, as it meant that they could cover more ground while mopping, without needing to plug the appliance into a closer socket.
- Ergonomically friendly, this floor steamer was described as easy to manoeuvre.
- While a little water is left behind on the floor after the steamer does its magic, this water dries quickly, leaving floors looking shiny and spotless.
Points to consider
- A number of reviewers (even satisfied ones) observed that the plastic material around the nozzle broke after years of use. It's delicate, and can’t be replaced.
- Some reviewers found that the water tank needed to be changed fairly frequently in between mopping sessions.
