"It's the product that put HAAN in the steam cleaning spotlight! The FS-20 is the naturally healthy way to clean and sanitize all your sealed hard-surface floors - without the fumes or residue of harsh chemicals.
Engineered to outperform every steamer in its class, the FS-20 emits 212°F steam to kill germs, bacteria and dust mites and leave your floors instantly dry. And it weighs less than 4 lbs. with a full tank of water and features 15 powerful, evenly-spaced steam jets to clean more floor in less time."
It is definitely light weight-even after you fill the tank (Of course it only holds one cup of water)
I have a very large kitchen with white vinyl flooring. As you can imagine being white it can be very difficult to get and keep clean.
I also have a dog that tracks in mud on my white floor. The mud dries and when I was using a regular mop I always ended up having to use a scrub brush to get the dried mud off. Using the HaanSteam Cleaner the mud came up with very little effort. I had to go over it 3 or 4 times but still much easier than using a scrub brush.
It also stood up to it's promise of leaving your floor dry. My floor was almost completely dry when I was done unlike when I used a mop and had to wait 10 minutes or more for it to dry.
I know that on their commercials on TV they said that it would run 20 minutes on a fill and that was about right. I ran out of water in about 15-20 minutes and since I was done by then- then that was ok.
My unit came with 2 washable micro fiber pads. These pads are hand washable and can be used over and over.
It has a telescoping handle that is adjustable depending on your height.
It is very lightweight and pretty easy to use.
Mine also came with an attachment to steam carpets.I haven't tried this feature yet. It doesn't claim to clean carpets as far as removing stains but it does claim to kill dust mites and bacteria. I will let you know if I try it for this.
The website also says:
"Kills 99.9% of germs and bacteria
No chemicals -just add water
Quick start up ready to use in 3 minutes
Easy fill tank lasts 20 minutes
Leaves floors clean and dry"
I cannot vouch for the germ killing part but the other claims seem to be true.
It comes with a 1 year guarantee and there is also a paper that says:
"If for any reason it does not perform to your expectations please call us toll free or email us. We will do everything we can to make sure that your decision to purchase a Haan is one you will be thrilled with for years to come"
I think that is a pretty good promise for them to make!
The only thing I can find wrong so far is the cord seems a bit short. I had to unplug and move it to get my whole kitchen done.
I am planning to take it to my daughter's house to try it on her hard wood floors.
