My husband and I worked for a large retail store and we are not to fond of the Shark brand...that being said, I have a neighbor that is very fond of her Shark brand steamer. I was sold on the Haan brand until I read one review that said it quit working after five months. I have a cat - that has a lot of hairballs, high pile carpet, hardwood floors, seven to nine children and a husband in my home, DAILY...I want something that has an detachable something or other to steam clean around the faucets, etc. I want something that uses pads I can wash but and not throw away...I KNOW everyone has their own opinions...and I shouldn't take everything all the reviews say so literally. But it is a big purchase...but I would rather it be an investment than a piece of junk. Anyone have any recommendations?Answer Question
I'd like one too- here's a Bump :)

I had a Shark steam mop and I hated it. It felt like a cheap little toy and the steam only lasted a short time. I had to refill it ever 10 minutes or so, and when I was using it, it was like puffpuffpuff....wait for the steam. puffpuffpuff.... wait for the steam. Crap.
I got a Wagner power steamer, and that thing is awesome. It is continuous steam so you don't have to wait. You also don't have to press to make steam. It just goes and goes. You can use attachments for grout, glass, whatever. This is the one I have: http://www.gleempaint.com/905-power-steamer.html
