    Default Should I buy a steam mop?

    Does anyone use a steam mop to mop your floors? If so, what do you think? Should I invest in one?

    I hate mine. It just smears the dirt around and leaves streaks and water marks. Give me a good old bee mop anyday.

    Yes you should. I love mine( even the h2o one I am using). I bought a monster from costco but it broke and I returned it for an H2O ultra and I wish I had replaced it with another monster because it was amazing to use for washing the walls with and you can't use the h2o mop for walls.

    I would buy the enjo floor system instead.
    I had a shark mop and it snapped in half. I have an H2O mop now - it does a good job, but it is heavy and a pain to get set up.
    The enjo floor system is quick, easy and it does an awesome job. All you need is the mop and water.

    Not impressed with the one I have. Don't remember what brand it is though.

    I use mine a couple times a week, I like to clean my floors the kids play on but don't want to use all the chemicals, also leaves my kitchen floor nice and shiny.

    I have a Shark Deluxe and think it does a fantastic job, but I would recommend getting one where the pad goes all the way around the base. I have the model where the pad just sticks on with velcro and it comes off all.the.time while I'm trying to mop. I'm getting a pocket one soon.

    I really like owning a steam mop. I find the model I have works well (h20 brand I think it is).

    This thread needs a poll so that we can see the brands to buy and the ones to avoid!

    that's what my experience is...we have one here you can try out before you buy if you like (to borrow)

    I prefer the Enjo floor system.

    I have the H2O mop, I personally don't like it that much. The cord isn't very long so I have to plug it in many times to use it. It can also make your floors swell from the heat (so be careful for hardwood). I also found it spread some of the dirt around and I would have to go and wipe up certain spots of the floor after. I gave mine to my mom.... Right now I have the Rubbermaid mop with washable pads and you fill it with your own cleaner and it's great, I have no complaints.
