Vax S2 Hard Floor Master
Advantages: Does a brilliant job
Disadvantages: Need more cleaning cloths
Most of the floors in my house are covered in either laminate flooring or tiles, in fact it is only the landing area that actually has a carpet in it. I have often toyed with the idea of getting a steam mop, after spending ages using a mop and bucket to go over the floor, I thought there must be something more simpler to use.
After looking at several online reviews, I decided that the Vax S2 Hard Floor Steam Cleaner was the one that suited me. Most of the reviews were positive and it was failry priced at £64.99 at Curry's so I decided to treat myself.
Setting up the cleaner is simple to do, you need to attatch the 'floor' bit to the main body with the screws provided and also the long handle to the main body. The water tank simply 'clicks' onto the relevent area. You are also given two cleaning pads to use.
The first thing to strike me after setting it up was just how light it was. I was expecting it to be quite heavy but it's perfect and ideal if you need to carry it upstairs. Operating the cleaner is also very simple. You simply fill the water in the tank and leaving for several seconds, once the red light comes it, that means that you can now use it to steam your floors.
First time that I used it I had a 'Is this actually working' thought. The red light came on and as I started cleaning the floor there didn't seem to be any steam coming out of it, nor did the floors look like they were 'wet'. Thankfully, it did take an extra while longer than when the light came on for it to really kick in.
Another good thing about this product is that the floor dries within seconds. When I used to mop the floor with water it would take ages to get the floors dry. The cleaning cloths also show how much dirt has been removed from the floor. I was suprised, I mopped my floors every day but it still picked up an incredible amount of dirt on the cleaning cloths.
Overall, it is definitly something I would recommend. It is very thorough with the cleaning and feels good knowing that my floors have had a good clean. The only downside I have about the product is that two cleaning cloths are not enough. I think you need a cloth per room for this product and it picks up an incredible amount of dirt (I don't have a mucky house). The cloths are machine washable but are quite expensive to buy seperatly.
Summary: Brilliant product
