Comment:
I use this steamer almost daily on Pergo floors throughout my house. I have cats and dogs as well as fishermen dragging in dirt as well as tradewinds blowing in dust. The steam mop, although for heavy duty cleaning, gets the daily dirt and grime off the floors. It is easy and uncomplicated to use. Much better than a dry mop, or wet mop.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Pros

No chemicals needed
Cons
Lost Steam After A Year
Best Uses
Comment:
My daughter and I both bought one. Hers only lasted about 6 months. Mine did a little better, it lasted a little over a year. Both did the same thing, they Lost Steam. This is worthless, I don't think anyone wants to go out and buy a mop/vacuum cleaner every year.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
