Pros:Cleans without chemicals. Floor brush has clips for cloth. Plenty of steam. Good accessories.

Cons:Wand is short for tall people like me.

The Bottom Line: This is my top choice for a household steam cleaner. Does floors, surfaces, has a squeegee and easy refill while running. Highly recommended.


The Euro-Pro Shark Steam Blaster is a canister style steam cleaner with detachable wand, squeegee, rolling canister and easy-fill feature. The unit includes:


Two extension tubes - 16" each
Rectangular floor brush with clips on top for cloth
Squeegee your mirror and windows quickly and easily
Hose
Two small detail brushes
Steam ready light - lets you know when the steamer is ready to clean
Easy-fill reservoir that is NOT under pressure, can refill while cleaning with no wait for cooling (!!!!)


Unit is blue and measures approx. 13.5" in diameter x 10" high with a 6' steam hose. The easy-fill port is a lift-off lid on the canister. It just sits on top, pull the lid and fill as needed. The unit has a decently-long 7-1/2' power cord and casters for easy mobility.

How does it work? I use it mainly for floors (we have tile in the bath, linoleum in the laundry and wood elsewhere.) After vacuuming, I put a terrycloth on the clips of the rectangular brush, attach it to the wand and turn on the unit. The controls are on-off on the canister and on-off on the wand to dispense steam. BETTER HAVE the wand correctly installed and the locking button fully engaged into the proper slot on the wand or it will pop OFF under pressure. I did this mistake first time out--didn't have the button aligned correctly and the wand blew off! Easy to make sure the wand is connected, but I mention it in case you might make the same error.

The cloth and gentle but steady steam clean my wood floors very well. (These are sealed wood floors.) After the steam dries, the floors are shiny and sanitary. No chemicals. Little smearing. I love it!

The squeegee pushes steam out the underside and allows you to mop off the steamy condensate as you wipe over the mirrors or the shower stall. I find this less effective, takes a sure hand to move that squeegee in the right pattern to clean the glass. Still, nice for the shower and of course steam is great for those of us who are sensitive to cleaning chemicals.

I use the detail brush on my tub and faucets. Plenty of steam comes out.

I have to say, I had THREE steamers (this is the third) and by far the only one I like. I only wish the wand were longer as I am tall and the two together still aren't as long as comfortable for my six-foot height. It is 32" fully connected and I would prefer 42", I think. Other than that, this steamer is a real boon to housecleaning for me and lets me do my tile and wood floors with no chemicals.
