I bought this last summer and was really excited to try it (I know; I don't get out much). However, several months later I have to say I'm very underwhelmed. It cleans the floors no better than a cloth & bucket of hot water with no detergent. So anything that dissolves easily is fine (e.g. muck off the kids' shoes) but it's rubbish with anything more challenging like dried-on food spills. As I bought this mainly for the kitchen that makes it a bit pointless. I get far better results with a bucket of soapy water and a cloth, hence I hardly use it these days. For me this was a waste of money.

I bought this Shark Steam mop over a year ago and I have been very pleased with the cleaning and finish that the mop provides. However, after a month or so of washing the mop heads in the washing machine on the correct temperature, the mops shrink and they do not fit onto the steam mop anymore. The velcro does not fair very well in the washing machine either and over time the velcro does not stick together. I feel that the mop heads need a different method of attaching together onto the steam mop.

A note from the team: Thanks for placing your review. We're sorry for the problem with the pockets and will be in touch shortly.Please ensure that the pockets are not machine washed in water over 40 degrees. If you stick the velcro strips together before putting in the washing machine, this will stop small pieces of other fabrics sticking to them, as these pieces will reduce the effectiveness of the strips over time.
Converted to steam cleaning”
It is very easy to use and the floors dried quickly after. We were shocked by the amount of dirt that came off what we thought were reasonably clean tile and lino floors with no streaks remaining. It also got out ground in dirt from laminate floors and was useful in refreshing carpets. The detachable steamer is fine for tiles etc and also cleaning the cooker. Since we have a cess pit we like cleaning without chemicals and this is the best yet. Downside is the relative small size of the water container.

Good but could be better”
I purchased this because of some of its features that other models didn't have such as a constant steam instead of having to press a button on and off and the swivel mop head, however the motor seems to make a very odd sound and I am quite disappointed in the direct steam as it takes a very long time to come out and then doesn't really come to much even when on full power! I do however find it very easy to use on the floors as it glides easily, it's not the perfect in terms of cleaning as it leaves some streak marks.

Hopeful, but really disappointed”
My sister bought this for me for my birthday a couple of weeks ago, and I've just used it for the first time. I was hoping that it would be just the thing that I was looking for to clean my tiled kitchen floor and my bathroom vinyl floor, and to use as a hand-held for cleaning surfaces in my kitchen and bathroom. I suspect that I might have a faulty unit, as it doesn't produce nearly as much steam when used as a hand-held as it appears to in the Lakeland video. I am really disappointed!

Does what it says on the tin”
by Henry Marks
This steam mop is really good. The delivery to Spain by Lakeland was excellent - ordered Friday afternoon - delivered on Wednesday lunchtime. The mop was easy to assemble and seems very well made and much better and more professional than our previous H2O X5. Fairly quite and plenty of steam available from the different settings. Cable is nice and long and and small touches like the storage bag add to the quality feeling of the product. Well done Lakeland for your service and Shark for the product.

Promises much but does not fully deliver!”
by Joanne Stanley
I am mostly pleased with it but disappointed in some respects. It works well on mopping the linoleum floor of my kitchen but less so on the hardwood floor. As I live in an area with extremely hard water I was quite pleased with the way it cleaned my shower screens though they were not perfect. I cleaned my uPVC windows (inside) using the squeegee head and was delighted with the results. However, the small mop head didnt appear to have much effect on the shower tray and the direct steam nozzle seemed to be useless! I am glad that I didnt pay full price and feel a little cheated out of money!

I love this mop so much I want to marry it. Simple and cleans so easily. Great value for money.

I purchased this steam cleaner last Saturday- I've used it today and I am very disappointed! The pad has worn out after 1 use on a large stone floor,the little brush attached to the handheld steam cleaner is already showing signs of wear!

I bought this steam mop a few months ago and it has been used regularly for a number of cleaning tasks around the house - kitchen and bathroom floors, shower unit, and around the kitchen. I am a convert! I have skin allergies to the vast majority of detergents so it is lovely to have my house cleaned in such a 'pure' way using no nasty chemicals. Would highly recommend.

Easy to use. Average cleaning.”
by Mrs Hamilton
Well built and easy to use. Cleaning is average. I didn't realise that I would have to vacuum first so doesn't save much time. The mop still leaves behind debris at the edges which I collect with kitchen roll. If I had done some research first, I would have bought a combined vacuum and steam mop. The window tool is good for the shower, however, the small mop head cover for the hand tool gets saturated very quickly and I find I can't use it for long (only one provided). Covers need washed after each use (separately, with liquid detergent which I don't usually buy).

I have tried steam cleaners in the past, but none were as effective and easy to use as this one.

RUBBISH - AVOID”
Purchased in store and returned for a refund the next day. We thought this would avoid streaks when cleaning our high gloss kitchen tiled floor. It didn't and it is in fact quicker and better with a mop. If you have floors that are matt / not high gloss you will probably think this is great. If you have a reasonably clean house already this will not improve it. Even tried it on the stainless steel hob and wished I hadn't bothered. I spent more time cleaning up the streaks it left then actually cleaning. PLUS imagine the cost as this will be like boiling the kettle continuously!

A note from the team: We're sorry to hear this product has not met your expectations. It does sound like it may have lifted existing floor cleaning solution. It terms of cost, it's a very efficient method of cleaning using just 1.5kw of power per hour so as an example: if your electricity supplier charges 10p per kw, the hourly charge would be just 15p.We hope you manage to find a suitable alternative cleaning solution.
Very good design but not strong enough for me.”
I was really pleased with the design and look. Obviously good quality and well thought out. Sturdy and practical. However, the performance is mediocre. Provides good steam but cant deal with anything above a light clean. Cant imagine what you would ever use the first setting for and really felt like it could do with a stronger setting. Could not remove a rubber mark on a wooden floor (which was easily removed with a friends basic floor mop) and left far too much water on surfaces (kitchen cupboards etc). Did decent job on grout but think that was more the brush than steam. Looking to return.

is this a new high score ?”
I managed to get half the Italian Riviera hooked on the SHARK (not the other way around), having just ordered the seventh for yet another friend. Took advantage of the special offer. So as an ex-pat I am doing my bit for the British economy and this area of Italy is quite literally steaming.

Unimpressed,a big let down!”
I bought this steam cleaner a couple of months ago,having been persuaded by the staff in Cardiff that it was worth investing in,unfortunately i've not been blown away by it's performance,there certainly isn't a consistent steam flow,which i assumed would be automatic ( surely the times when there is no steam,the floors are not being cleaned thoroughly?? ) the handheld option is clearly also not emitting permanent steam,therefore my overall opinion is i've wasted £99 on something which has not helped reduce my household chores,if anything,has lengthened them,very disappointed.

I too am very disappointed wth this product.I had it sent out to me in Cyprusand have tried it on all surfaces, tiled, granite and wooden, but unfortunately, it leaves all the floors dull and streaked so I have gone back to the mop and bucket. Everything else I have bought from Lakeland has been excellent.

Porcelain tile floor left dull, when subsequently wiped with damp kitchen roll it was obviously still dirty. I find the mop head fiddly to get on. Hand held mode does get grease off glass kitchen door.

Decent cleaner poor service”
I was unsure about this but purchased due to the Lakeland guarantee. Tried it once - okay. I liked the hand held section and it cleaned my bathroom well. The upright part was okay - no better than a mop and bucket - but cleaned the floor to a decent standard. Some marks still remained and I had to get on my hands and knees to scrub - but I think the steamer had loosened.

Purchased this steam mop in January and having used it several times, I remain disappointed with the results! I have used it on wooden floors, lino and tiles and in all cases the surfaces are left very dull and streaky. Don't think it was worth the money. Have gone back to mop and bucket!!
