Having problems with your Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum ?

Streaks on porcelein tile from shark steam mop

\015 Read your reply to one other user about streaks. I don't agree with you. There are only two adults in our household and my floors don't have product buildup or soap residue. I use it to refresh the floors just like the steam is supposed to refresh the carpet....\012\012I have never used anything on my floors but the steam mop (and I mean it) I vacuum & mop my floors every 3-4 days. I don't know if the steam feels hot enough. I rinse the pads out before I wash them, put them in washing machine with detergent and that's it.... Every time I use the mop it leaves water streaks. I even purchased new pads.\012Same problem. I have even used vinegar. I have 2500 sf of tile. There has to be another way or solution to do this. I don't plan to get on my hands and knees each time to wipe my floors down !! \012\012To me, a steam mop should apply steam and should leave your floors streak free. If it doesn't it must be the pads.....\012Wish someone would make a real micro fiber mop pad that would absorb the dirt (if any) and leave floors virtually spot and streak free.\015

Answers :

I have the same problem!!! its driving me nuts, i think its the microfibe pads that do it. I used the kenwood steam mop and it didnt have a microfibe cleaning pad on the bottom of it and it cleaned it perfectly, no streaks! because that blew up i have the monster mop and it streaks every time, i ended up wraping a bath towl around the base and mopping with that on it, dont know what else to do?
Try washing your pads in JUST water and Baking soda or Borax (and only about a tbs). Sounds like a hard water problem. I had the same issue with my wood floors so I put some Murphy's Oil in a spray bottle and it polished my floors while I steamed. Perhaps there is a good tile cleaner/polish you can spray with a spray bottle while you mop? Just a suggestion. I haven't had this particular issue with tile (our floors are concrete and wood) but the streaks went away when I started using just Borax in my laundry with them, no fabric softener, no dryer sheets. My mom used to use Isopropyl alcohol in a spray bottle with her steam mop. Make sure your tile is well seeled too, it gives you a better finish. The alcohol dries on it's own too without leaving residue.

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

Poor cleaning I recently bought the Shark Steam Mop as I read mainly fantastic reviews. I was disappointed to find that it leaves a slight film on my dark hardwood floors when finished. I can wipe the film away with my finger and you can see foot prints if walked over. I also found that there are cloth streaks on my ceramic floors after drying as well. I followed all instructions, vacuumed beforehand, used distilled water even though my water is not considered hard, cleaned slowly, etc. I am wo

For some reason, our shark steam mop stop working. Usually after I plug the steam mop, the power light would light up then you would hear & see steam coming out of the mop's head but all of a sudden no power light would go on and no steam would come out. I can still use the mop, cause water from the tank still is able to flow down to the head. It's just that I'd have to use it like an ordinary mop not as the steam mop I liked. Pls help!!!
