Shark Genius Steam Mop Hard Floor Cleaning System

Shark’s Smartest Steam Mop Ever

Shark Genius Steam Mop

The Shark Genius steam mop is designed with hands free cleaning in mind.

I love my current steam mop. I had received one of Shark’s earlier models some time ago from my son for Christmas. I was thrilled! I wanted one so badly. I even took a photo of the occasion and shared it on my Facebook page, I was that happy.

Forget about the socks, shirts and perfume. I wanted something that was going to benefit me more than those gifts ever would. Don’t get me wrong, I love receiving flowers, clothes and chocolates etc. but I wanted something that would last, be less of a burden on my body and help me have more free time.

Why do I love cleaning products as gifts? Here’s why!

The longer it takes me to mop my floors, the more my body hates me. The action alone of pushing and pulling a mop along the floor can send my body into a spasm. I have severe arthritis throughout my body. My hands can cripple up on me along with my back, hips and knees.

Why do I love steam mops? Here’s Why!

It can take me some time to mop my floors using a traditional mop and bucket. Plus…the floors can take some time to dry. I am always having to touch up areas because I, my furbaby, or anyone in the house at the time has had to walk across the floor while it was wet. My socks and/or slippers get wet in the process and so I end up having to change those as well. I also find that the water isn’t hot enough to get off tough dried up spills and often find myself going over the floors a couple of times to remove all the dirt. Even at that, I still feel that my floors aren’t as clean as they should be

The Shark steam mop that I received a few years ago as a gift works amazingly well. That said, it works in a totally different fashion than that of Shark’s newest member of the steam mop team.

With the Shark Genius steam mop, I am loving that I no longer have to physically place on or remove the cleaning pad. Just with simple the touch of a button, I can attach, clean then remove. What a great feature!

I also like the new set up of the steam mop itself. With the new Shark Genius steam mop, the cleaning head with dirt grip pad runs along the floor following behind the jet of hot steam. I love this feature. The steam has a chance to work itself on the dirt and grime so the cleaning pad can easily follow behind and lift it up with little effort.

In addition, steam cleaning sanitizes floors in a way that traditional mopping would not. Dirt is easily removed from crevices on surfaces such as linoleum. Also, floors dry very quickly when using steam to cleanse the surfaces. This is something that I really love. I know that my floors are super clean and I can literally walk across the floors right after I steam them. I no longer need to wait for the floors to dry which is such a time saver in of itself.

Using the power of steam eliminates the use of cleansers that may contain harmful chemicals. The result – Clean floors and crisp, fresh air circulating in my home.

I am ecstatic that I now have the newest and might I say better Shark steam mop.

The Shark® Genius™ steam mop is so easy to put together. It will arrive in 3 sections that with just a simple click, they snap together. Plus…there is an extra dirt grip pad aside from the one that is already pre-attached to the cleaning head. Within minutes you can be steam cleaning your way to sanitized and quick drying floors.

As you can see from the photo below, my kitchen floor is a mess. It has dried up sauce, water, and coffee spills plus Tracker’s muddy paw prints and more.

No – my floors are not normally THIS dirty. I specifically did not clean any spills or doggy paw prints on purpose. That – and I have been really sick with a “man cold” – well – it feels like one, and I haven’t really been up to cleaning let along moving.

Shark Genius Steam Mop - Before

I think the crusted up spill featured in the photo below was gravy. It would have taken me forever to remove it with a mop. If you look closely you can see the steam spraying out from the jet (featured in red). I just let the steam spray on the spot for only 20 seconds. Actually, I think it may have even been less time than that.

After slowly moving the steam mop along the floor only a couple of times, that thick hardened crusted up gravy spill was gone! The steam mop removed it from the crevices too! My mop and bucket would never have done that!

It didn’t take long and before I knew it my kitchen floor was spotless- shining in fact.

The lightening isn’t the best in my house so here is my kitchen floor from a different angle. Tracker approves -lol-

Here is a video that I took of the Shark Genius Steam Mop in action. You won’t believe how much dirt and grime this powerful cleaning tool removed. What I really loved is that my body isn’t killing me like it would after using a mop and bucket system to wash my floors. It’s so easy using the steam mop and takes little effort. I just slowly moved along the floors allowing the steam to work it’s magic. I didn’t have to exert any energy at all. The steam did all the work for me.

If you are going to purchase a steam mop, the Shark Genius would be one to think about.

    I already have a steam cleaner but it can also be used to steam clean mattresses and clean windows as well as the floor. Steam cleaners I find are really good.
