I love my pets. They are pretty much my life. Sometimes, they make messes. Such is life. When Gavan, my 7-year-old Golden Retriever, goes out to use the bathroom, his feet typically end up a mess when he comes back inside. Depending on the weather, the ground can be very dry, sandy, grassy or even muddy. The dirt, sandiness, and even the grass are quite easy to clean up. I just use my Shark Rotator Powered Lift-Away Speed Vacuum to clean it up. The mud, however, is a different story. That is not always easy to clean up. There is a towel at my backdoor that we have Gavan, stand on while we clean his feet off. The mud never completely comes off his feet, unless we dip his feet in water. I am left with muddy footprints all over my kitchen floor.
Our main area is the kitchen/dining room and the living room (located off the dining room, but it is carpeted). Due to my pets walking around on our linoleum, I do not want to use harsh cleaners on my flooring. And I am not one of those “natural” or “green” people (sorry). However, there is a solution – STEAM. Yep, you read that right. I have moved towards using steam products to clean my home. Do not get me wrong, I still use cleaners, just not where my pets will be.
I am in love with the Shark Genius Steam Pocket Mop System! It is absolutely awesome and something that EVERYONE should own. It has made cleaning my kitchen floors so much easier. To be honest with you, I use the Shark Genius Steam Pocket Mop System S5003D* even when it does not have water in it. Sometimes my cat likes to spill the water dish and it is great for soaking up the water!
Specs on the Shark Genius Steam Pocket Mop System S5003D:
- Clean and sanitize* sealed hard floors with washable, dual-sided Dirt Grip pads
- Touch-Free Technology: never touch a dirty pad again
- Steam Blaster attacks tough, greasy, stuck-on messes
- 3-setting Intelligent Steam Control lets you customize the amount of steam for each cleaning task
Cleaning the floors has become quite easy with this Shark Steam Mop. You just fill up the water reservoir, turn the mop on, wait 30 seconds, and start mopping. Sounds simple, huh? Well, it really is! Plus, it sounds like an ocean sound machine while you are using it! Kind’ve neat.
What comes with the Shark Steam Mop:
- 1 Genius™Mop Head
- 2 Dirt Grip™Pads
- Filling Flask
- 22 ft. Power cord
With this steam mop, you will find that keeping your floors is quite the breeze and because it gets a deep clean, you do not have to do it as often. I like that two dirt grip pads come with the mop, so you do not always have to worry about cleaning the one right away. There are only two things that are kind of “eh” to me. The first thing is the cord – while I like that it’s a super long cord, I’m not a fan of the material the cord is made out of, as it feels rather cheap and doesn’t move all that easily. The other thing is that to change the amount of steam you get, the controls are below where you fill it, and so it can be a pain. Granted you should not need to change the amount of steam that you are using all that often. I haven’t had to empty any leftover water out of the tank, as I typically use it till it’s gone, but I would imagine that it’s rather easy to empty it. Being able to scrub some of the dried on mud off my floors with the steam blaster feature is quite awesome!
Overall, though, the Shark Genius Steam Pocket Mop System has kept my floors clean and sanitized! I am impressed and I think others will be too. I like the style and design of the steam mop – it is sleek, stylish, and simple. It is really a great item for your home. This is one of those items that I will be using for years to come in my home. Everyone should own a Shark Genius Steam Pocket Mop System S5003D*!
