Warning to all purchasing the Shark steamer...

Posted by betteratthelake (My Page) on

I just wanted everyone to know that after having & loving the first version of the shark steamer, I decided to purchase the newest version, model #S3501W. After all, who could resist the bigger tank, longer cord, swivel head, etc. Well, I wish I would have left good enough alone because now my beautiful Brazilian hardwood floors are scratched! The sad thing is I did second guess it after feeling the new pads & how they felt thinner & I could feel the plastic mop head through it. So in a way, it is just as much my fault. But I just wanted to let everyone else know who hasn't purchased the new version, not to!
Errr, why does finding a good way to mop our floors so hard!!

I am so sorry the Shark ruined your floors. Nothing I can do but offer my sympathies.

Thanks, Jannie. My DH came home & said it can easily be fixed so I'm not upset now. I really am more to blame for it, as it did come with a purple duster pad & I think it is what they recommend for wood floors. I just used the regular pads with the org. version of the shark, so I just assumed I could do the same with the new one. Lesson learned! I just didn't want it to happen to anyone else!
