While nothing will ever really replace the Cinderella-style of hands and knees scrubbing, this mop certainly is better than pulling out the regular mop and bucket of luke warm brown water.
It is sturdy enough and easy to assemble. its easy to use and does a great job of cleaning without chemicals. Sticky juice spills in the kitchen come up quickly and easily and the sanitizing feature is great for the area just in front of the bathroom toilet where men can never seem to avoid. lol.
The cord was plenty long enough for the rooms in my house, since I dont live in a mansion with huge rooms. And I was able to clean my kithen ceramic tile in less time than it took my husband to go outside and smoke a leisurly cigarette. The floor dried much faster than with regular mopping but I could see spots of dampness here and there when I was done so I am not sure how safe i would feel using it on hardwood floors.
The cons: it only comes with 2 reusable pads. So after the kitchen and bathroom I had to stop and wait for the wash before I could do the hall bath and the downstairs bath. Plus I felt I could redo the kitchen a 2nd time since the pad was so filthy the first time around. So you really do need to buy more pads.
Also, it does NOT do grout. If you have a spill in the grout lines the best you can do is 'sanitize' the spot (holding the mop there for 8 seconds) to loosen the dirt and then manually wiping clean with a rag or paper towel.
Finally, while the swivel head is easy to manever, it really does not get into corners all that well. And much like regular mopping, you have to sweep well or vacuum first or else you will just be pushing around crumbs or hair which will collect along baseboards and corners.
Since this is a great novelty mop, and since I love that I dont have to buy cleaners, I would definetely recommend this mop for people who like to keep their floors clean, and are sick of the mop and bucket style of cleaning. My floors are cleaner and I look forward to using it again when those stupid pads go through the wash again. lol.

I love this mop and it does all I have expected it to do. It does a great job cleaning, you don't need chemicals, is lightweight, and the steamer is ready to use in about 10 seconds.
The water lasts a very long time. The carpet glider works great, and though it won't clean your carpets like a carpet shampooer, it did brighten my carpets, and the steam "opens" the carpet fibers which made my vacuum work better.
My daughter has allergies, and this allows me to kill dust mites without chemicals in the carpet.

I was looking for a floor cleaner that was easy to use,easy to store,did not stink up the house,left no residue and did not leave huge puddles on the floor.I love this little model. It is great for the kitchen vinyl floor. I takes very little time to heat up and works like a charm.This is great for fast and easy use. I have used is successfully on small area rugs. The pad stays on(most of the time-I lost the rug attachment plate but it still worked great)and it is very easy to maneuver and is light weight.I have tried other models of steam cleaners and I was disappointed with their ability to clean corners. This was not an issue with the H20 mop.I would say that if you don't change the pad enough you will get puddles on the floor(this could be due to the dried on bubble gum that my son was trying to clean up-but it got the gum up).I have had a Kirby, Floormate( scrubbed great on grout but after a while left puddles on my floor but I still love it for grout ),Eureka Envirosteamer(o.k but hard to fill and the pad NEVER stayed on) ,Bissell(oh what a waste of my time and money),swifter(stunk up my house and left a residue) and my good old scrub brush(you still can't beat this for corner cleaning). The H20 will be my everyday cleaner because it comes closest to suiting my needs.

I received my mop today and am totally disappointed !!!!!!!!!!!! It doesn't do what they claim. After mopping my tile floor, you couldn't even tell it had been mopped except for cleaning up recent spills.
It DOES NOT clean grout like they say. I have some grooves in my tile and it would not even clean dirt from them !!! I would not recommend this to anyone. Save your money !!!!!

BUYER BEWARE!!!! I have this mop and think it works very well. However, I bought my mother-in-law one for Christmas. When she got it out to use it, there was a pin point hole in the water tank. Water drips out constantly! I e-mailed the manufacturer about it and never received a reply. After waiting a couple of weeks on the reply, I finally called customer service. They said that the part is warranted -BUT- on all warrany parts you have to pay shipping. The customer service supervisor said there is no way around this. So BEWARE if your product is flawed by the manufacturer, they will not make it right without you having to pay shipping and handling charges!!! This is not the type of company I like to deal with!

It used to take for ever to get the kitchen floor cleaned. Once i moved everything and swept, got the bucket, added detergent, water, washed, then rewashed to rinse, i was beat. Now it takes 10 minutes tops i am done confident my floor is clean and shiny no stain to tough and yes it works on linoleum it glides fine on the floor with the power of steam.

I bought this mop several months ago after seeing it on an infomercial (hey, I was on maternity leave! :) ). At first I was skeptical, but since it had a money back policy, I figured I could try it out on some of the pet stains my mom's shampooer couldn't get out and send it back if it didn't work.
Well, I still have it. We had an orange pet stain on some very light carpet that my mom shampooed with her carpet shampooer several times and the spot was still there. I worked with the stain for about 5 minutes and it was gone. Amazing! I've used it to get pet urine out of the carpet, too, and it has worked wonderfully.
I will admit, I have only used this on carpet. Our house is about 75% laminate flooring and I've been hesitant to use it on the laminate, but it works great on carpet. I was amazed by how quickly and easily it got stains out of carpet that a shampooer and countless products couldn't get out - including red wine stains. I also let my sister borrow it after moving into a home with very stained carpets - the carpets don't look brand new, but they look very improved - again removing stains that the carpet shampooer couldn't.
If you have a pet or kids - or a clumsy spouse - I recommend this to remove any of those stubborn stains and not leave behind any chemical residue.

This mop is complete garbage. It does nothing to the floor and leaves water standing all over. I sent the mop back the next day.

I was happy when I got this product, it was quite friendly in the beginning, but soon it stated to show its facts, mop pad , they started to wore out pretty fast, even after regular wash, they looked like black in color, after couple of month of use, now this is unusable product as the steam has stopped to develop, followed all instruction on the website to trouble shot, no use, and now I come to know I have to reorder the part, which has a filter, I order that too, after 2 weeks, when I contact customer service, they say that prod is backorder wait for another 3-5 weeks, I dont trust that I will get that part real soon, I am very disappointed with this product and the fact that it advertise so much they have such quality and performance standards.
