Hey, that’s just our opinion. You can make your own decision as we now take a look at what is out there.
Why You Need a Steam Mop
Before we dive fully into the guide, there is one more thing that we should go over. Do you even need a steam mop? If that thought is going through your mind, it is perfectly natural. They are a little pricey and you have done just fine in the past without them, right?
Maybe, but that doesn’t change the fact that steam mops are quite possibly the most versatile cleaning products on the market. If you want something that can clean carpets, tiles, curtains, and even strip wallpaper from the walls, then you are going to need to get your hands on a good steam mop.
Now that you are convinced that they are great, here are five that we love.
Top Rated Steam-Mop Buying Guide: Which One is the Best?
You will probably remember the Bissel from earlier. We selected this unit as the best on the list because it produces incredible results at a moderate price. But just because we love this product doesn’t meant that you have to. Make your own decision as we now look at some key features.
If you are the one that is responsible for keeping your home clean, you are well aware of the fact that sometimes spots are a little bit too sticky or messy to get clean.
This is especially true if you are used to using the standard products (vacuums, traditional mops, brooms) but it even happens to steam mops from time to time.
When your cleaning needs a little bit of a boost, what do you do? Well, if you have the Bissel, you activate the SpotBoost brush.
This component of the mop is optimized for eliminating the types of messes that other mops simply can’t handle.
Because steam mops are entirely natural, using heated water instead of harsh chemicals, they don’t produce that fresh cleaned scent that other cleaning products are able to generate.
With the scent discs, the Bissel is able to solve that problem. Simply load up the discs into a small compartment in the front of the vacuum, and clean the same way that you always do.
And of course, if you don’t care for the scents, you certainly don’t have to use them. There is something to appreciate in the plain, natural smell that is left over from a good steam cleaning.
You probably won’t always need variable settings, but if you have a lot of different types of surfaces in your home, you are probably going to appreciate having a few options at your disposal.
The high, low, and medium settings featured here are going to be enough to empower you to be as thorough and versatile as possible as you clean.
We may not have chosen the SharkNinja as our top choice on this list, but that doesn’t mean you won’t! This feature rich steam mop comes in at a slightly higher price than the Bissel, but if you appreciate the features, perhaps you will find the extra money well worth it. Read on and find out for yourself.
Wide Cleaning Zone
The SharkNinja mop is optimized to create the largest and most extensive cleaning zone possible. The design of the head is streamlined to ensure that the steam is able to access as much of the floor region as possible.
While that is happening, the “Dirt Grip Pad,” technology works simultaneously to absorb and eliminate all of the gunk that is built up on your floor.
In other words, the SharkNinja is designed to make each motion with this mop as insanely efficient as possible.
With some stains, the standard steam output just isn’t going to cut it. That is why this unit features a targeted burst feature. If you come across a stain that you just can’t seem to eliminate, activate the targeted burst feature to attack the area with a highly concentrated burst of steam that should eliminate the gunk.
Last but not least, disposing of used pads is about as easy as possible with this mop. After a long day of mopping you certainly don’t want to have to put your hands on the pad that you used to clean your bathroom, right?
With this mop, you don’t have to. Eliminating used pads is as simple as touching a button.
While we wouldn’t necessarily say that this unit is the world’s best steamer, it is safe to say that it is the most affordable option we have seen so far. Is it worth your money? Let’s find out.
