Anyone own a steam-mop?

I am going to buy a steam mop. Plan to use it on my laminate hard woods and kitchen tile.

Please share any pros or cons.

Looking at the Bissel and the Shark mostly.

  • My sister bought the shark and it worked very well, one time. Then it broke. She says don't get it.

  • Yeah we had the Shark as well. The pads wear out very fast, within 3-4 months, and from my experience, it just leaves a grimy streak of dried up dirt everywhere. We used it on laminate and tile and were not satisfied. It is supposed to "sanitize" but I dont buy it. My girls were crawling on the "clean" floors and had black knees and feet so I got rid of it and busted out my old Libman. Waste of $80, IMO.

  • I have a bissel and I love it. The bissel has thick microfiber pads that are really nice. My friend has a Hauun (sp?) and loves hers too.

  • Thanks for the input. I think I"ve decided on the bissel b/c of reliability and a swiveling head. :)
