Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the New Shark Genius Hard Floor Cleaning System
Is your family super messy like mine? My daycare kids can tornado through here in a whip snap and make this place look cra cra. I NEED things to make my job of cleaning up after them easier. I tried the new Shark Genius Hard Floor Cleaning System to help me get a handle on this mess!
I LOVE steamers for so many reasons. I love that you don’t have to use harsh chemicals, just water, and the steam actually disinfects. When mopping with just soap and water, I feel like I’m not getting the germs cleaned up as well as I could, but I hate the thought of using toxic products around my kids.
I love the steamer because it cleans so much better than a mop!
After about 5 or 6 years, my first steamer broke. Shark sent me this brand new one to review on my blog. All opinions of the steamer are my own.
I love how much easier a steamer is to use than a mop. No rinsing and lugging around water. Just fill it, plug it in and get to cleaning. I can’t wait to tell you about how Shark’s newest steamer worked for me.
I am the perfect person to test this steamer because I have giant sized messes in my house in the form of a band of 7 crazy toddlers and preschoolers. They have tons of fun here for 10 hours a day and there is plenty of time and ways to make huge size messes. Between meals, art and outside activities, we have a really good time here.
If any flooring or cleaning companies want to contact me for testing their products, I’m all over it. The only thing is, I’m allergic to everything and very conscientious of what types of things I use around my kids. I want their environment, and mine, to be as safe as possible. Before I had a steamer, I always just mopped with soap and water because I didn’t want the residue of harmful chemicals where my kids crawl and play.
The Shark Genius Hard Floor Cleaning System steamer is the best one yet
The steamer is a great environmentally responsible tool that only uses water to clean. The steamer heats the water and dispenses it in the form of steam. The steam is hot so it disinfects the floor as it cleans. No chemicals, no rinsing, no fuss. If you’ve never tried a steamer, I would totally recommend it! My old one even cleaned better than any mop I ever had.
The things I didn’t like about my old steamer were: the water reservoir was small, so I had to refill it if I had to go over the floor more than once. (I have to do that a lot around here) I also didn’t like that if I wanted to change the pad and get a fresh one, I needed to pull it off when it was steaming hot. Not fun.
The Shark steamer came in three pieces in the box. It was easy to snap together with the picture instructions. Then I had to fill it with water and it was ready to go. The pad came already assembled, but if you wanted to put on a fresh one, you just lay it on the floor and set your steamer on it. Then you click it over to one side and then the other and the whole thing is assembled.
I have to tell you this new Shark Genius Hard Floor Cleaning System steamer is the Cadillac of all steamers. I mean, man howdy, I LOVE this thing. The water reservoir is bigger and holds enough water to steam everything in my house twice. The cord is longer so I don’t have to re-plug as often. The pad attaches super easily with one click and it UN-attaches with the flip of a button, so no more cooking my fingertips!
Hands free steamer pad removal
I love that the newest steamer (Shark Genius) has two sides to the pad, so if I need to go back over a super dirty area because I gunk the pad all up, all I have to do is flip it over and use the second side. This saves me a ton of time as I usually use two pads.
The new Shark Genius Hard Floor Cleaning System steamer that Shark sent me has three settings, low for regular cleaning, 2 for more cleaning, and 3 for super-hot cleaning, like if the germ apocalypse comes. Ha ha. You can crank that puppy up and really get the tough grime. If you have a stubborn spot, you can turn the steamer around and it will send a blast of steam out into your mess and bust it right up. Then you turn it back over and finish steaming. Super cool!
Genius is the perfect name for this steamer
Here are some pictures of before and after I steamed today. Wow, does this thing do a good job. I don’t know how well you can see all the splatters and sticky stuff the kids left here, but with very little effort, it looked clean as a whistle again. I was so impressed. I love that you don’t have to wear yourself out doing it. After I watch kids for 10 hours, I’m pretty worn out for a lot of heavy cleaning.
I couldn’t really think of anything negative to say about the Shark Genius Hard Floor Cleaning System, except maybe it would be nice if it would get steamy faster, but if you’re in a rush, you can use the steam blaster to get started more quickly.
I would love to share one with you, but since I can’t, I’ll just leave this information for you about how great it works. I really, really love it. You can get yours here.
I’m not a flooring expert and can’t recommend what types of floors can be safely steamed with a steamer. I just know it’s great for my vinyl flooring. Click here to see what else daycare providers can’t live without.
