Question about Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum

1 Answer

Poor cleaning I recently bought the Shark Steam Mop as I read mainly fantastic reviews. I was disappointed to find that it leaves a slight film on my dark hardwood floors when finished. I can wipe the film away with my finger and you can see foot prints if walked over. I also found that there are cloth streaks on my ceramic floors after drying as well. I followed all instructions, vacuumed beforehand, used distilled water even though my water is not considered hard, cleaned slowly, etc. I am wondering if anyone out there has had the same issues with this product and if there is a solution before I try and return it.

    I have the same problem and I can't find a solution for this problem anywhere! I called the manufacturer and they said that it was due to residue from previous cleaning and would stop after a few cleanings. I have cleaned the floors a couple of times now and still have the film/streaks. Don't know what to do now...

    I am going to try using amonia on my floors first to see if it will remove the residue left by previous cleaners.

Before you buy the carpet attachment, you might want to read this review. I found it very helpful because I couldn't find much on how it works on your carpet or any reviews on the attachment. Her comments were all positive.
