    Default Steam mops - worth it???

    Hi ladies,

    Just a random/boring question... I'm wanting to buy a steam mop but wanting to hear from others who have one if they're worth it or not..None of friends currently have one, so they're no use to ask!!!

    I've had a look & seen they cost anywhere from $40 - $500. If they're any good, I'd prob want to pay around the $100 - $150 mark.

    Just wanting to know if they're any good or not before buying one..

    Sorry for such an odd question!!

    Totally worth it! You'll find that most ppl will never go back once they've tried one. Don't spend a fortune... Mine is an original Pirahna off eBay $20!

    I also have a bissel. The best thing is you don't scrub like a mop and bucket, you just press the steam button. Easy to use and very light. $175 in good guys.

    If anything goes wrong with bissel they replace if under warranty not try and fix.

    Don't need a lot of elbow grease.
    Can use to steam clean mattresses
    No need to use chemicals.

    Dislike

    Slow to heat up and start steaming
    Need to refill the tank several times to get through all my tiles
    Can't get into all the tight corners - end up using my old mop to do that.

    I tend to flip between the two. If I'm just doing a quick spot clean I'll just use my old mop as its faster.. For my regular clean I use my steam mop.

    Good question as I've been thinking about getting a steam mop lately too!

    Are they any good on high gloss large white tiles?

    Also, what brands to look for and what to avoid?

    I have the green one from Godfrey's. I paid about $65. They always have a promotion on where it comes free with a vacume. But I think there fab and so worth it !! I dont think you have to spend heaps on one either
