This steam mop is fine for a light quick clean up. We have this for about 3 years. It has work well for us. The replaceable pads are expensive. Overall the mop has performed well for what we use it for, light clean ups.

    This is an excellent product and worth every penny. I've spent a year trying to get both the hard flooring and the stone flooring cleaned in a townhouse I bought and have tried many products. This steamer finally did the job; the results were amazing. I like how the output of the steam is controlled and confined to the area being swept so the steam does not get the walls or furniture wet. The container holding the water is small - only 10 ounces and initially I thought I would be constantly filling it up but not so; one container of water has lasted for over 800 square feet of flooring. I really like the convenience of the long cord and when it said the unit heated up in 30 seconds, it was definitely that quick.

    Terrible on wood floors
    Although the company claims that this machine is "easy to use and safe on tile, finished wood and laminate floors" it left terrible streaks on my sealed wood floors. After reading some online comments mirroring the same problem, I added a half teaspoon of white vinegar into the water. This helped slightly, but it's too late. The streaks are obvious and not going away. Very disappointed.

      Simply Cannot compete with other more heavy duty Steam Mops
      Upon Opening up the Swiffer Steam Mop, I thought that it was a bit flimsy. It just doesn't "Feel" substantial. I put it together and attached the disposable cleaning towel/wipe, added the correct amount of water, and plugged it in. On the upside, it heated up FAST. It's very lightweight, and not hard to manipulate around the rooms. However, on the downside, the cleaning towel is too lightweight. It simply cannot get INTO the grooves and notches in the floor tiles. My ceramic floors are grouted, and the dirt stayed trapped in the grout lines. It also does not get into the corners very well. It trapped the dirt into these corners and I had to then go back in with a brush, and remove the trapped dirt. For the Price Point, one could do better. With the Swiffer Steam Mop, one is going to be forced to purchase the disposable towels, on a continual basis. This is the ONLY steam mop that I can find that asks you to replace and not wash the cleaning towel. Perhaps there are people that like having a disposable towel. I did not. I also feel that a cleaning towel that must work with the delivery of steam, should have more than just a flat surface to deal with the dirt and debris that is coming off of the floors. Dirt and hair, seem to roll up into a ball, and then got distributed back onto the floor in clumps. For the cost of the Steam Boost, and the further cost of the Cleaning towels, my suggestion would be to get a different product. This one just seems like it wanted to compete with the other products on the market, with somewhat disappointing results. I really wanted to like the Steam Boost mop, but, I just find that it needs improvement.

      Convenience and ease of use are winners
      I have laminate wood floors and had been dying to try a steam cleaner. After doing a ton of research on whether steam was going to ruin my flooring (most industry experts say it will, homeowner anecdotal evidence suggests probably not), I went ahead and gave it a try. The unit comes unassembled, but it takes only a minute to snap the handle together to ready it for use. The water tank is plenty large and easily accessible--I cleaned my kitchen, dining room and living room without having to stop to refill. Nothing is added to the water, the cleaning power comes from the disposable steam cloths. After a very short warm-up, the steamer is ready to use and is activated by squeezing a trigger on the handle. The steam wasn't always visible, but you could always hear it, so I knew it was working. The starter kit comes with 2 steam cloths which are so easy to install. Open the wings, sit the steamer head on the cloth and pinch each corner into the steamer head (see picture). I used both cloths for the area I cleaned. There was a tiny bit of streaking, but not nearly as much as with another brand's steamer. After the floor dried, I did a quick follow up with a chamois polisher I got from Costco to get rid of the streaks. Love that the cord is super long and that there is a hanging loop on the end of the handle! I also used the steamer in the laundry and bath, the unit worked great on the vinyl surface in those rooms, also. Overall, I'm very happy with the steamer and highly recommend it!

      Luv it as a Post Cleaning system, lightweight & sanitary
      Mine arrived with 2 Individually wrapped Steampads in the OpenWindow Fresh scent. It's a clean scent, not overpowering, but not enough pads to finish a fair test of the product. I purchased a 20 pack box of the same scent. The pads are secured like all other Swiffer products, at the four corners of the pad over a rubberized bottom, as pictured. Lightweight, it's nearly the weight of an aluminum cane. The cord is more than 18 feet long. It is attached to the Steamer about a foot above the floor. An extra clip secures the cord is at the top of the handle. It easily moves across the floor without the cord getting in the path. The temperature for realistic cleaning stays at about 170-180 with constant use of the steamer button, see the pics. I used a meat thermometer, pictured. That temperature may be useful on bacteria but will not sterilize to kill some pathogens. Depending on how long you are willing to spend holding the pad over parts of your floor you may kill bacteria. I did a pre-cleaning. I daily clean a room that has a cat litter station. Depending on your preference a disinfecting product might be used and then the steamer. The steampads pick up some surface dirt and particles but push cat hair and larger particles around. Post-cleaning is the best use of the steamer. This changed my life because I boil water to clean floors. My daily work is cut in half. I enjoy using it. As a piece of engineering, it is a simple product that heats water. Tiles clean easily, the grout is not cleaned. On cement floors the pads fray and tear, but they take a beating before they do that. I've also tried washing the pads and using them again, that works. Realistically, as a product that works for post-cleaning, it's worth the price. I particularly like moving it from the litter area to the kitchen to clean floors without worrying about cross contamination.

      Had 2, both broke the same way
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Very disappointed. Have considered Bissell to be of better quality, but the trigger mechanism is weak and destined to break. Received first one as a gift and it broke. Got a second one as a gift to replace the first one but that broke too. No repair parts seem to be available either.
        Love < 3
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I've owned this mop since it was first released. No problems whatsoever. I've never bought pads. I just use a clean microfiber and fill with water. I spray a little diluted Mr Clean multipurpose cleaner here and there as I mop and my floors come out amazing from my hardwood, ceramic tile and laminate floors. In a house with 3 dogs.... Impressive
