We finally bit the bullet and bought a Dyson this weekend. After much consideration and talking to people who have them and swear by them. Along with that we also bought a Shark Steam mop. I'd been wanting one for a while and Target was running a great deal. You get a gift card when you purchase a Dyson. So we figured we would buy a steam mop with the gift card. We decided to get the Animal Complete. With 3 dark haired animals living inside, we need all the help we can get!
We decided to go with the Shark Plus Steam mop
I feel like the floors are much more clean. The steam mop is so much easier than worrying about a mop and water/cleaner. The Swiffer Wet-Jet didn't work for me because it streaks too much. The other cloth pad mop I got was too much trouble.. Too much taking the pad off, rinsing and dipping in cleaning solution(water and vinegar in my case) and repeating.. It took too long to dry on the floor and I just didn't feel like the floor was clean enough. With a 15 month old walking around, most of the time bare foot, I need the floors as clean as possible.
After using the steam mop twice, I think a mop with automatic constant steam or an easy to push button on the handle would be a lot better. This one has a pump motion on the handle. So when you push and pull(the motion of mopping), the steam comes out that way. It's not hard to do but when you flip the mop over(the pad has a scrub side and a shaggy side) it seems a tad harder for the steam to come out. I am very happy with it and feel so much better already that the floors are cleaner.
