Exceeded my expectations!
It is my first steam mop. I have always been thinking, that nothing can be better that a good cotton mop to keep your floors clean. My house had carpets in every rook with exception of the kitchen and bathrooms, and it was not a big deal to clean the floors just on my knees. Then we had fire and and in our rebuilt house we have tiles in the kitchen and bathrooms and engineered wood floors everywhere else. Cleaning them all on my knees was out of question. I was using microfiber mops and “Bona” floor cleaner, but the floors have never looked good enough and did not feel clean,not mentioning sanitizing.
I have been shopping for steam mop for a couple of months. I was reading reviews and comparing products. I even found a review with comparison of several steam mops and their steam temperatures, but could not make my mind. I came across Steam Fast Multi Surface Steam Mop by Vornado for $29.00 + free shipping. I decided to give it a try. For that price,even if it is a total failure, I will not feel robbed. I also applied $8.50 from Amex points, so I got the mop for unbelievable price. My husband was absolutely skeptical, saying that I will get what I pay.
The mop have exceeded all my expectations. It is light, glides easily, it heats in about 4-5 minutes. Some reviewers put it as a drawback,but I do not know why… You have to sweep or vacuum the floors before mopping any way, so I do it while it heats. The switch pedal is on the mopping head, so I just need to push it with my toe to start the unit. It indicates, when it is out of water with the green light going off. I can replenish water, using measuring cup included in the package, right away, no need to wait for cooling down,since no steam comes out of the top hole when you unscrew the cap.The mop leaves much less moister than a regular mop, and no streaks.It takes 1 measuring cup to clean my kitchen and 1 1/2 cups to clean the leaving room.The package includes two microfiber pads with Velcro on the back. All you need to do is just put the mop on the pad and it is ready. The replacement pads are also sold on Amazon, but you can be creative and make your own, if you want.
I was not too concerned if the mop sanitizes the floors or not.I do not have little children, playing on the floor, but I have two dogs, who mess them all the time. The white socks test proved ,that the mop really cleans my floors. I remembered those reviews with steam temperatures for different tested mops, and decided to test mine. I used digital meat fork-thermometer.I put it under the mop and got 207F in 4 minutes after turning the unit on.It is way more than I could even dream about.
I used the carpet attachment, which is just a plastic frame you put the mop on. It fluffs and freshens my area rug and they look great.
What else can I say? I have been using this unit for 2 weeks frequently ( Remember? Two messy dogs) and I am absolutely in love with this little wonder! No more cleaning on my knees, no more sticky floors.I saw the same mop for almost twice more from different vendor, but I would not hesitate a minute to buy it again. It is too early to say anything about durability, but it has 1 year warranty any way. Considering what it does, I am ready to spend 40-50 bucks in a year, if it breaks. It is worth of every penny.(read more)
Leaves Vinyl shiny
It doesn’t say anywhere in the box for use on vinyl floors. Since it was given to me I tried it out first. I loved the results. I’ve tried it a few times already and I love how it leaves the vinyl floor shiny. I never seen it like that before. I stay away from toxic products and make homemade house cleaning products, so I’m so happy I don’t have to use any products what so ever. I used to clean my floors with vinegar and it does just the same job as vinegar would. Because I still like to think I’m disinfecting my floors I clean with vinegar once a week. The steam mop does remove stains because of it’s hot steam. First time I tried it I honestly thought it wouldn’t remove the stains. Totally excited about this. Just wait a few minutes for it to steam up and you’re ready to go. You have to mop very slow just as the directions say.(read more)
It really works!!
First off, everything is nicely packaged, kudos to the manufacturer. I don’t understand why anyone thinks that the handle is cheap? I find it to be quite solid, you must have gotten a broken one. It snapped into place real well and that sucker ain’t coming off for nothing!! Just a little ghetto talk to get you in the mood.
Now, the Steamfast is a decent heat. I was expecting it to be less, but I was pleasantly surprised at the high heat that it produced. I was a bit disappointed in the lack of steam, but I walked over every area I did and it was definitely working; floor was slightly damp, warm, and felt clean. After I used this, I could breathe a whole lot better. I can’t even begin to imagine what that actually means, but I guess it means that it’s a nifty little machine to have in your broom closet.(read more)
