Now the cons (though not that bad to me):
1. You are tethered to an outlet. Not too much a problem as we have many outlets all over the house. If you are like me you were changing the water in the mop bucket frequently when using a regular mop...so moving a cord around is much preferred in my book.
2. You have to fill the mop with 8oz of water every 20 minutes or so. A little red light comes on to tell you to fill it up. I have to add water about 4 times to do all the high traffic areas in my home.
3. The microfiber pads need to be changed regularly. Once the pad is saturated it starts to leave wetness that lingers on the floor. If I use two microfibers pads per 8oz. fill-up it seems to be the perfect balance. I have 6 microfiber pads and that is perfect for my 1800 sq ft house.
4. Using the steam mop is a little slower than regular mopping. You don't just rush the mop over the floor. You have to move a little slower so that it has time to steam up the mess and then grab it in the microfiber pad. This adds a little extra time but totally worth it since there are no chemicals and the floor is completely sanitized. I sure wish I had this product when my daughter was crawling. It would have saved time and my back from scrubbing the floors by hand.
Oh, I have the carpet attachment. This is great for sanitizing the carpet, bedding and upholstery. We are an allergic household so it seems to work well for this. You do not use the microfiber pads when using this attachment so I am not sure that it would remove stains. I have not tried it for that yet...but I will when I have the chance.
Finally, a steam cleaner that works....after having tried four others I was gratefully surprised! While you don't see the steam, because it comes out the bottom directly to the floor and not out the sides, it cleans so fast that it took me a few tries to learn that I don't have to move the machine slowly for it to work. I have never had such a clean wood floor so fast!
Then, I used the carpet glider and freshened the carpet my stinky dogs have enjoyed for years. I was shocked that the smell actually left! And I spent no more than 5 minutes.
The HAAN....a working mom's best friend!
