Rated 1 out of 5Â by zuzu Done with Haan
I love using a steam mop on my wood floors because after I'm done they look like new. I've had 2 Haan products in the last 4 years and both have failed. I seriously used each probably 5 times each before they stopped steaming. Each time I use the mop I'd make sure the tank was empty, let it air dry. I've read the info about using it once a month, distilled water, using the packet to clean it. The issue is paying so much for a product that is so fussy and stops working after only a few uses. IF there's a problem with the lines clogging, how about making a way to access the lines to clear them out. Having to throw away a product because the stupid line is clogged is, well, stupid.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by STROM76 Super easy!
I had been looking at steams mops for a long time. I really wanted one since I had been getting on my hands and knees to clean my floors. Eventually, I told my husband that I was never going to do that again! I looked at many, many brands and models. I liked the fact that Haan gave me the information that I wanted that none of the others did: the steam temperature, number of steam outlets, etc. This product was SUPER easy to use! I was a little worried when I opened the large box and saw all the pieces, but I literally had it put together and was cleaning in less than 5 minutes! I plan on giving this one to my dad and buying another for myself.
Rated 2 out of 5Â by kimbijou While I love this steamer...I've been through 2!
This will be my 3rd haan in just 3 years...I just can't seem to get them to last...Broken water tanks (replaced that) then a broken screw cap twice, (ordered new ones) then a broken neck with the last one. The other one just stopped working. But because we need it, I'll order another one. To give it truly one last college try!
Rated 4 out of 5Â by JCap Lightweight, easy to use, well made steamer
I held off reviewing this model until I had used it for a bit. I like it very much. I got the version with the swivel head, but otherwise, it's a simple, lightweight, streamlined steamer which heats up fast, and is easy as pie to use and care for--which is what I wanted. No heavy steamer or hard to use bells and whistles, no extra attachment parts to mess with (with the exception of the carpet steamer piece, which is simple and quick to attach, and I appreciate being able to pull the steamer out at a moments notice, heat it up in seconds and go over a section of the carpet where a spill or animal mess has been made.) I have seen other reviews which state it's not a very robust cleaner--and that is somewhat true. If you are the kind of person who only cleans the floor twice a year, this machine probably isn't for you, b/c it doesn't 'scrub' anything, and if you load the pad up with dirt, it will just smear it around. So if you have an area with a LOT of dirt, cleaning would be tedious b/c of having to change the pad out all the time. This is not to say this steamer cannot clean difficult caked-on sticky or hardened dirt, b/c it can (just let it sit a bit on a spot and then easily wipe it away)--but I would use it more for isolated areas, not an entire floor that is monumentally filthy. Basically, the steamer uses high temps and steam to soften a mess, which is then wiped up with the very absorbent floor pad. It also sterilizes--and that's something which can be done on a relatively dirt-free floor, and I often use it for that reason, having pets and friends with kids who visit. I use it for weekly, bi-weekly, or even daily cleaning, as well as spot cleaning and I love that I don't have to use chemicals, detergents or other cleaning products, just water and heat. I also love that I no longer have to lean over/bend down/get on my knees to clean up! I have three cats, a labrador who loves to get dirty/wet/messy, and a husband who is not generally neat. This steamer is great for the muddy pawprints (just make sure you are steaming with a CLEAN or nearly clean pad--get extras to switch out when they get too dirty) and kitchen mishaps, sticky or dirty floors, drool, you name it. I do sweep up with a quickie dust mop before doing my whole-floor weekly clean, so I don't get gigantic wet hairballs on my floor pads--doing so also saves the life of my floor pads, too (which clean up fabulously in the washer, another plus: low waste! No disposable pads to toss!). I have a 3000sf house, half of which is wood flooring and ceramic/terra cotta tiling with a bit of texture, and half carpet--the steamer does great on all three surfaces. The wood floor especially gleams when I'm done! I use the standard ultra cleaning (blue) pad on the wood, and the noodle pads on the tile b/c they seem to reach into the texture and grout better. I also try to use the steamer to clean the grout specifically on ocassion, and while it isn't perfect, it does lift and remove a lot of the darkness and dirt on the well used walkway areas, which I appreciate. It can also be used to 'freshen' carpet when using the carpet attachment, by sanitizing it with heat, and I use it when the cats vomit on the carpet too (I clean it up manually, then use the steamer to sanitize and give an extra clean to the carpet--it has worked magic, leaving no discoloration of the carpet or stains or sour smells; the carpet still appears new!). Thanks, Haan, for a good little steamer!
