Start with a clean pad. A dirty pad wil spread the wet residue around and strek the pergo. After steaming use a clean microfiber dust mop to buff the pergo. It will dry and shine yur laminate.

Can I add vinegar to the water and steam clean laminate flooring?


Unless Shark says water only I don't think that would be a problem. All the vinegar will do is remove any grease on the floor and perhaps remove some bad odor. I rinse my hair with vinegar water every day after shampoo and conditioner. Only then do I consider my baby fine hair clean!

Shark Steam Pocket Mop Cleaning Problems


After watching Shark Steam Pocket Mop from the vantage point of Fixya.com for a few months and seeing the many problems that people were having with the Shark Steam Mop streaking their floors and especially hardwood or laminate flooring I decided to do some research and reading about this problem.

What I found was very interesting.

Many people are blaming the steam mop for their problems, when in fact the problem is just coming to light because of the use of the steam mop. It seems that if other cleaners have been used on the floors they leave behind a residue. Then you come along with this mop that produces a heated steam type cleaning and you start to take this residue off of the floors. This then leaves the flooring blotchy or streaking.

So now what do you do with you floors when you get this mop and what will cure your streaking, blotchy floors? There are a couple of ways....

First way is to just keep on using the mop. Many people report that their persistence has paid off and that after a few uses the shine comes back to their floor as the old scum and residue is more completely removed.

The second way is to use a vinegar and water solution to manually clean the flooring before using the mop. This takes a bit more elbow grease, but will get the floor looking really sharp much quicker. Here is a site that tells about that.

So if you are having a heart attack because your mop seems to be making things worse instead of better then don't give up too quickly!! Use it a few times first... it has a 1 year warranty. Or get on your knees with that pail of vinegar water and get the old gunk from all those other cleaners off of your floor first.

Can I safely use the Shark pro Steam Pocket mop S3601 on dark hardwood floor?


You will not hurt your finish by using the steam mop...use it without any type of cleaner on the mop head and you should get a great streak free shine...

I use it on a laminate floor { pergo } and it shows streaks every time. It looks terrible when I am done.


Hi,

This type of problem usually is not he fault of the Shark Steam Mop.
The problem is the old residue left on the floors by other cleaners.

Here is a tip that I wrote that will help you out with that problem...

Can the shark steam mop be used on the pergo floors??????


They can, but i don't recommend it. after a while it will wear down the protective coating, you will lose shine, and possible damage the floor.

Vinegar


Do not add anything to the tank.... Vinegar is corrosive and that would potentially be very bad.
