Weak solution of washing soda or washing up liquid (dish soap)in warm\015\012-hand hot- water , rise with clean water before drying. Anything\015\012designed to remove grease or fats will work to remove the silicones in\015\012the pledge which have caused the problem, but need to be careful with\015\012the finish on the floor.

Let me know, if need further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Vinegar Hello! I really love my new Shark Steam Mop. It is useful for cleaning my Pergo floors without streaking. Can I add some white vinegar to the water or will that damage the mechanism or clog something? I am using distilled water, by the way. Thanks- Denise

Recently purchase SC-N500 vacuum cleaner. Worked well only the first 2 times I used it to clean up plaster dust from floor after sanding. Since then it has not worked at all well wiht very poor suction. Fluff gets stuck in the hose and has to be manually removed. Suction power is very poor. I have washed the filter to remove the dust with no difference. Who do I contact in Brisbane to service or assess the problem further.

I used my Hoover FloorMate, SpinScrub Hard Floor Cleaner for the first time today. My intent was to clean the grout in my kitchen/family room floor.

I have the Hoover max Extract 77 and when I'm cleaning the carpet, the clean water tank leaks on the floor, even if I'm not squeezing the trigger. The clean tank doesn't leak when I fill it, but once I place it where it fits and start using the vacuum, the clean water drains out on the floor. The dirty tank fills up, so the suction works, but, I don't know what is going on?

I have a new Euro-Pro shark model S3101. Used it one time and while I was doing my tile floor in my kitchen I reached under a cabnet to clean and hit the floor kick kind of hard and broke the head off of the shark. I have only the T shaped end on the shark now with the cleaning head broken off and looks unrepairable. I did kind of hit the floor kick hard but the plastic broke like glass.
