Shark S3501N Deluxe Review

A Great Addition to Your Cleaning Utensils

For some people cleaning is a real chore. However, I find it very satisfying. Considering what I do for a living, it would be kind of odd if I didn’t! Although I enjoy this type of work, I do recognize that many of you reading this lead busy lives that and you’re probably looking at this review because you want to find a faster way of keeping your floors clean.

One of the biggest problems I come across, both personally and professionally, is the number of different surfaces you can have in your home. There are hardwood floors, tiled, vinyl and a whole host of other materials. In fact, it’s not uncommon to have the need for several different utensils for this reason alone.

So, today I’m going to review the Shark S3501N Deluxe Steam Pocket Mop which I happen to think will help you do away with the need to get out a bucket and scrubbing brush only to then have to switch to a rope mop so you can clean a different type of surface.

One thing I have to say is this particular model of steam mop isn’t always met with a seal of approval. However, people can be very unforgiving with what they expect from a tool that helps them with cleaning their home.
In the following few words, you’re going to get a no frills overall look at what this steam mop is capable of and how it can help keep the amount of time you spend cleaning your floors to a minimum.

Ease of Use

This steam mop is a mere 1lb in weight and comes with an extra long power cord (25 feet to be exact), and you can adjust the height of the handle. The head is rectangular in shape, but it has a 180 degree swivel action which helps to cover the hard to reach areas much quicker.

Safe, Chemical Free Cleaning

All you need with this steam mop is water and some power to convert that into steam. What the technicalities are behind this I couldn’t tell you but it really will work on all hard surfaces that are “sealed”. Notice the word sealed. Many complaints about the results with this steam mop have come from people who have attempted to use it on floors it’s not suited to, so bear this in mind.

Because you’re using steam, this mop will help you kill all manner of bacteria like e-coli and other harmful germs which can cause illnesses. It will also help remove dried spills and ground in dust and dirt. In fact, this steam mop is a great addition to your cleaning implements if you have children or pets. However, where loose fur or dust is concerned, make sure you vacuum first.

The fact you’ve no need for chemicals is also great. This helps the environment, as well as your pocket (no more expensive cleansers). It will also help those of you that are sensitive to certain ingredients in household cleaners. And, the best thing of all is it will do away for the need to have several different mops.

Other Considerations

This steam mop comes with two reversible pads that are washable so you can re-use them, and they are made from a patented micro-fiber material. It holds plenty of water in the reservoir so you’re not constantly re-filling it, and comes with a 1 year limited warranty.

Overall

As said, not everyone is completely happy with this steam mop, but they’re probably expecting more than it can give. If you have the types of surfaces this model will deal with, and there isn’t much in the way of lumps and bumps on your floors, this mop will do the job without the need for chemicals.
If you want to find out more, there are plenty of people on Amazon who have great things to say about this steam mop as well, and you’ll also be amazed at the price!
