Fortunately my kids are old enough that they can be fully responsible for much of the mess themselves and I will happily turn over chores like washing dishes or cleaning the litter boxes to them without a second thought.
When it comes to our hardwood floors, however, taking care of them mainly falls as one of my duties. We banished the traditional mop and bucket ages ago (too slimy, drippy and gross) and those cleaning systems where you attach a disposable pad each time left me not too happy either with the replacement costs and poor quality.
Fortunately, thanks to Shark and their new Shark® Steam & Spray™ Pro, I have now found the best of all worlds. Our floors have never been more efficiently or easily cleaned!
Shark, already known as a steam cleaning technology pioneer, has once again transformed floor cleaning with the addition of the Shark Steam & Spray Pro to their line of innovative, high quality products.
Providing three ways to clean hard floor surfaces within one cleaning system, this user-friendly device can provide spotless hard floor surfaces in the face of quick, light cleaning all the way down to tougher, stuck-on stains and greasy floor messes. Is there anyone that wouldn't want a device made to clean and sanitize, whether their floor needs a quick clean, a general whole house clean or a deep floor clean?
The three distinct ways to clean include:
- Steam-Only Mode – turn tap water into steam for a deep clean with no residue.
- Steam & Spray Mode – steam combines with the Shark Hard Floor Cleanser for a high level clean to remove stuck-on dirt, grease and stains.
- Spray-Only Mode – swap in the lightweight, battery-powered head for a quick clean-up.
...I pulled out the parts and was pleased to find that assembly was going to be extremely easy and only take a matter of seconds.
Sure enough, in less than a minute I had the handle snapped into place and the batteries (included!) installed. As my floor can pretty much always use a deep clean, I opted to start with the Steam & Spray mop head and quickly popped it into place.
All that was left to do was attach a cleaning pad (either the multi-layer washable cleaning pad to lift and lock away tough messes or the SaniFiber disposable pad that is great for germy messes), fill the water tank using the handy flask provided, and insert the cleanser bottle right into the front.
Basically with no work at all I had this innovative machine powered up and ready to go!
Putting this unique steam mop to work was just as easy. As the entire thing is lightweight and has a 20ft power cord it can be lifted and carried with one hand to nearly any part of the house — someone like me just needs to decide which floor is in most dire need of cleaning.
Then simply plug it in and, due to the Automatic Electronic Steam Control, there is no need to adjust any dials or knobs to try to get the correct amount of wetness onto your floor. Shark takes care of it all for you and the Steam & Spray Pro starts the steam when you release the head back and stops it when you stand it back up. Easy peasy!
When using the steam only function, this incredible mop deep cleans wood and hard floors with ordinary tap water that then cleans 99.9% of household bacteria.
Just the knowledge that it doesn't take any more effort on my part to deep clean and sanitize all of the hard floor surfaces we have in the house gives me peace of mind, particularly as we seem to have illnesses around here no matter if it is cold and flu season or not.
For bigger messes and to remove tough dirt, the Steam & Spray function combines the steam with Shark's powerful, biodegradable Hard Floor Cleanser for a higher level of cleaning.
Just press the spray button (conveniently located right on the upper handle) and the nozzle efficiently targets and covers your stains. There are even bright LED lights that show exactly where you are spraying so that you don't miss a spot!
Whether used with or without the the spray, I have been extremely happy with the way that the Shark Steam & Spray Pro has performed from start to finish. The swivel-steering makes for easy maneuverability; there is an upright feature (allowing the mop to stand on its own) for easy storage; and it really only takes a pass or two to loosen, lift and lock in dirt.
The sparkling clean result is exactly what I want to see to know that this is providing a superior deep clean!
Just because I no longer have crawling babies living in my house, that doesn't at all mean that my kids aren't constantly down on the floor, so I love the relaxation that comes with being able to grab the Steam & Spray Pro (with or without a cord!) to help power through the job.
In fact, it only takes a matter of seconds to swap in the lightweight, battery-powered head to transform this into a cordless spray mop that is perfect for quick clean ups. We're talking versatility that is so easy to use that my kids just might find themselves in charge of mopping full time pretty soon!
With an MSRP of $119, the Shark Steam & Spray Pro is one investment that anyone and everyone can feel good using in their home as this high quality product answers all the needs of the consumer — whether as a quick clean-up tool or for extra power for deep cleaning and sanitizing — to achieve spotless hard floor surfaces.
Forget having to stress or struggle when complete floor cleaning is this convenient... not to mention the relief knowing that it will do all of the work while still being safe around kids and pets. I love being able to grab this quickly in Spray Mode to do everyday cleanups while also being able to reach for it in Steam Mode as a weekly spot and mess remover or Steam & Spray Mode for the big-time, stuck-on grime. If you have hard floors you need this!

Other than the Shar Steam & Spray Pro that I was provided by Shark in order to facilitate my review, I was not compensated or enticed to do this post in any way. This review is solely my honest opinion about this product.
