I bought a shark steam mop about three years ago from Sam’s Club.  The house we were living in at the time had all cement floors so it was wonderful for that space.  I’m not too keen on the idea of using swiffers or anything like that. I have dogs and I’ve heard too many stories of dogs walking on a floor after it’s been swiffered (wet jet stuff), laying down, licking their paws, and getting really sick.  The steam mop just used steam so I didn’t have to worry about that.  It broke after 3 years use, but I used it A LOT.  Like, 1,000 square feet of steam mopping every other day.

I use the Shark Steam Mop… It was just on sale at Macys for I think..120.00, it was 199.00 before the sale — Actually, just checked — it’s 129.00 right now.  

 I have (cheap) hardwood floors.. I live on a farm and I have a dog.. Bad combo! It’s really hard not to use the “Scrub” function all the time because it works SOOOOOOOOOOO well but it states very clearly on the mop that the “scrub” function is not for extended use on hardwoods.

Anyway, so far, so good. I’ve had it for about 4 months now and I like it. Before this, the swiffer and anything else would not work. I had to get on my hands and knees and scrub to see a diffrence.

I don’t have one, but I want one so bad!  They are supposed to be so much better than a Swiffer or a regular mop.

I have the Bissel Steam Mop Select Titanium:

I LOVE it. Serioiusly, mopping was my least favorite chore, but it’s so easy now because I don’t have to deal with the bucket and the nasty mop afterwards (just throw the pads in the wash). It cleans better than the swiffer wet jet and in the long run is cheaper, and no nasty chemicals.

One thing – make sure you use distilled water. Regular tap water has minerals, and in any type of steam appliance it builds up over time and eventually will make less and less steam and eventually stop working.

I have a Shark steam mop. I originally bought one for my mom for her birthday because she wanted one, and she loved it so much I decided to buy myself one. I have laminate hardwood in my house, a big dog and two cats and it’s been great. It doesn’t leave any kind of residue (because it’s just water) and it’s safe for the pets. 

I also second the distilled water thing.

Are these used for normal wood floor cleaning? 

I am planning to get on my hands and knees this weekend, and wash it with a good old bucket and rag – unless I find a magical answer soon!

I have a Black and Decker one. I wanted steam because i didn’t want my daughter to get hurt from chemicals on the floor from regular mopping it.

@sienna76:  hands and knees?? Yikes. Definitely get a steam mop :).

As long as your hardwood is sealed, you can use the steam mop.  I have hardwood and it works beautifully.
