How do i get ceramic tiles to have a shine again. they are not high gloss but they used to have a shine to them


You might try a steam cleaner like the Shark Steam Cleaner. If you use a polish, sometimes that makes it worse and makes your tile dull. Just use plain old soap and water. The Shark also scrubs your floors as it cleans.

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.

I am noticing that my hardwood floor looks streaked and cloudy after I use my shark steam mop, I even tried using distilled water and it did the same thing. Any suggestions on how to fix that?


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.

It sounds like the heater core has popped a fuse. This model has a built in fuse to the heater and is hard wired in there. Unfortunately there is no way to fix this. This machine is made to basically throw a way in a couple of years.
