Summary: Returned after four uses. Did not clean my tile floors (which are throughout my entire house), left streaks and left floor sticky, difficult to maneuver, cord too short, water tank too small, bulky so did not fit in all the nooks and crannies, hated the pads. I was disappointed after seeing good reviews but this was definitely not for me. Went back to the Shark lift away pro.
Summary: I bought a Shark S3101 at Walmart about a week ago and tried it out and was not satisfied with it.So I brought it back. It left steaks, you really couldn't see if you were out of water, you needed a funnel to get the water into it (you had to use your own funnel). You could only use one side of the pads because it had velcro strips on one side. The Eureka 313A it a much better designed unit and does a much better job for only $10 more in price.
Summary: This is my third Eureka Envirosteamer. The first lasted 2 months and then I waited about 4 months for a replacement through warranty service. The next one lasted a bit longer, maybe 2 years. You must be VERY CAREFUL not to tip it over or to overfill it. If water somehow escapes from the tank, it will quit forever.
Summary: the steamer was not a steamer at all but a floor washer! it soaked the floors and we had to actually go back and use a towel to sop up the excess water. after having had the shark steamer and had it burn out in 2 years: we read the reviews and felt this was a great option. Wrong. I would not recommend this to anyone. It does not do the job at all.....
Summary: Easy to assemble and use and does just what it says it does. I compared the different steam cleaners and this one came out on top due to its temperature being much hotter and the steam coming out constantly instead of having to push down. Also, you can use regular towels if you need another cleaning pad instead of buying more pads. Love it so far, does a nice job on the floors.
Summary: The Eureka Enviro Steamer does not produce enough steam to clean well tile floors. It's like using a cheap rag washed in hot water. After using the Enviro Steamer, you still need to mop with a regular mop just to dry the wet floor.
Summary: Great floor steamer. Puts out hot steam directly to the floor instead of delivery from higher up on the pole, so steam is much hotter and more effective. A shark unit we had from Costco for years was not nearly as effective and more difficult to use. This is an excellent unit and very easy to use. Pads are super easy to attach and remove. Highly recommended!
