“Do or do not! There is no try.”
Nancy & I installed beautiful, cocoa, hickory hardwood at the house last month. We couldn’t be more pleased. Our puggle, Molly, loves them too. She shares all her unwanted dog hair with the new flooring. The contrast is something to behold. Needless to say, we started shopping for a handy, easy to use broom or mop to clean the floors. A friend told us to try a Shark Steam Mop. You can find them at Walmart, Home Depot etc.
It works as advertised, no cleaning supplies needed. You add water, attach the re-usable cleaning pad, plug it in, and you are off. The steam seeps through the pad as you push it back and forth and the pad pick up the dirt, hair, and CHALK. That’s right. Chalk. We found the perfect cleaning device for those chalky mats around the gym. The steam mop is light and glides along those gymnastics mat surfaces with ease. In no time, we had all our mats done.
You cannot add cleaners or deodorizers into the mop, because of the heating element and risk of damage to the device. Because of this limitation, we like to spray some deodorizer down on the mats to “freshen-up” the gym. It would be nice to be able to add the water and deodorizer into the mop.
We purchased the two-sided version. This cuts down changing out the pads. You may want to buy additional cleaning pads. Two pads come with the mop. We bought an extra two for an additional $19. When the pads get dirty, you wash them in the laundry. We love it!
Give it a try!
