One of the hardest and most dreaded tasks of housekeeping for many is to mop the floor. This is especially true if you have huge spaces that need to be cleaned. Steam mops can take the pain out of keeping your floors clean and the Eureka steam mop, referred to as the Eureka Enviro Steamer, is a very popular option with consumers.
The Eureka steam mop is easy to use. It comes with two mop pads which clip easily to the machine. The pads can be washed and reused.
The Eureka steam mop is well designed. The water tank holds about 20 ounces of water and it only takes three minutes to reach its cleaning temperature of 220 degrees. Unlike many other popular steam mops, the Eureka’s water tank is located at it’s base instead of on the handle. This is a much sturdier design. Not every steam mop on the market gets hot enough to kill germs, bacteria, and dust mites. The Eureka Enviro Steamer, with it’s 220 degree temperature, does.
Another wonderful feature of the Eureka steam mop is it’s adjustable handle. This feature will be especially appreciated by consumers who are above average height. No bending over and getting a sore back while you are mopping!
At about five and half pounds, Eureka’s steam mop is lightweight while at the same time heavy enough to get the job done. The base water tank puts extra weight on the floor making it easier to scrub at the grimier spots on your floors.
The Eureka Enviro Steamer is affordably priced and has very high customer ratings. Most of the reviews rave about the steam mop’s performance and well built design. Of the negative reviews, many sound as if they could be user error. A common complaint I seen from unhappy consumers of this mop was that it left the floor too wet the first time they used it. It seems that in this case, persistence usually pays off. Many people mentioned that it might take a few uses to get the mop “broken in” and working optimally.
There are many advantages to owning and using a steam mop over a traditional steam mop. First, it’s more eco friendly for your home and family…no chemicals needed. It is also much easier to use. No wringing out a mop and lugging a bucket around the house. It also produces better results. With a traditional mop and bucket approach, you are often end up pushing the dirt you are trying to mop up around the floor. Steam mops, with their removable, washable cloth pads produce much better results.
The Eureka steam mop is definitely one of the top steam mops on the market but it is a model without many bells and whistles. This won’t bother most people but if you want a steam mop that performs additional tasks such as cleaning carpet and sanitizing furniture and rugs, there are some other options that might be a better fit for you.
