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...

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.

Streaks on porcelein tile from shark steam mop


Try washing your pads in JUST water and Baking soda or Borax (and only about a tbs). Sounds like a hard water problem. I had the same issue with my wood floors so I put some Murphy's Oil in a spray bottle and it polished my floors while I steamed. Perhaps there is a good tile cleaner/polish you can spray with a spray bottle while you mop? Just a suggestion. I haven't had this particular issue with tile (our floors are concrete and wood) but the streaks went away when I started using just Borax in my laundry with them, no fabric softener, no dryer sheets. My mom used to use Isopropyl alcohol in a spray bottle with her steam mop. Make sure your tile is well seeled too, it gives you a better finish. The alcohol dries on it's own too without leaving residue.

Shark Floor Cleaner streaking on pergo laminate floor


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.
