I want to give a review on the Shark Floor Steamer, and let you know if this is something you should buy, or maybe try another direction. I am not going to make up your mind for you, however, I will give you the pros and cons, then you can make up you own mind. I will also give you some other suggestions to compare, and see if they might fit your needs a bit more.

Euro-Pro Shark S3101 Electric Steam Mop

Pros:

  • The Shark floor steamer is very lightweight, making it easy to maneuver
  • Steam is ready in approximately 30 seconds, maybe a little more
  • It releases the steam with a push-forward motion when mopping
  • 10.5 inch cleaning path
  • Comes with 2 reusable microfiber pads
  • Equipped with a 20-foot power cord
  • Mop is very easy to take on and off with hook and loop fasteners
  • Does not leave streaks
  • Great for hardwood floors
  • Great design, and concept
Cons:
  • The biggest weakness in the Shark floor steamer is the handle
  • The handle is very flimsy, and will break after a bit of use
  • Replacement pads are a bit pricey
  • You may have to rinse the pad in order for it to really pick up the gunk
  • You have to do a bit of scrubbing back and forth to get the dirty spot
  • Good performance overall
The Shark Steamer is a great mop for the price, as it is priced lower than the other steam mops on the market. As I mentioned, the main drawback is the handle, but if you are cautious, not letting it drop, or putting extra pressure on it, then it should give you no problems.

Now I want to tell you a bit about the upgrade version of the Shark Floor Steamer;

Euro-Pro Shark S3501 Deluxe Steam Pocket Mop
Okay, you know the flaws that are in the model I just wrote about? Well, they don't exist in this model. I highly recommend this to everyone. This actually will make your mopping fun. I know it is a bit pricier than the smaller model, but is well worth the $ difference. It works great on hardwood, laminate, and tile, and goes through the grime with such ease.

  • 30 foot power cord
  • Extra-large, easy-fill tank
  • Steam ready in 30 seconds
  • Releases steam with push-forward motion
  • Comes with 3 mop heads, carpet glider, and 4 reusable cleaning pads
I recommend this Shark Floor Steamer, and I am sure you will be happy with your purchase.
