Tips for Choosing the Best Steam Mop for You

Find out more about our top two picks for best steam mop:

Eureka Enviro Steamer

Haan Slim and Light

There are a lot of steam mops to choose from these days which can make picking one seem like an overwhelming task.  Since name recognition alone doesn't necessarily make for a great steam mop, here are some tips to help you choose the best steam mop for you:


1. Do Your Research - This seems like a no-brainer but read reviews and trust what you read.  If there are a lot of negative reviews for a particular model, this should definitely be a red flag for you to avoid that mop.  Taking a little time to do research will save you aggravation and possibly money in the long run.

2. Narrow Your Search - You can make your search easier by narrowing it before you start.  If you know you only want to spend a certain amount of money on your steam mop, only research the models in that price range.  

Dirt Devil, Lysol, and Steamfast are usually under $50 while the Eureka Enviro Steamer, the original Shark Steam Mop, and the Bissell usually run between $50 - $80.  The Shark Pocket Steam Mop, the Haan Steam Mop, the Monster, and the H20 Ultra usually run $80 and up. 


3. Do You Need Bells and Whistles? - This is another question to ask yourself.  If you want a mop with a lot of bells and whistles you will want to check out the Haan, MonsterDirt Devil Deluxe, or the Shark Pocket.  If you just want a basic steam mop that gets the job done but doesn’t come with a lot of fancy attachments or features, check out the Eureka Enviro Steamer, Bissell, or the Steamfast.

Eureka Enviro Steamer - a simple no frills steam mop with an adjustable handle, this mop gets hotter than many other models so it's a good sanitizing mop. It comes with two reusable mop pads that clip on for easy changing.  Moderately priced.

Haan Slim and Light - More expensive than the Eureka Enviro Steamer but the Haan Slim and Light comes with more features including a santizing tray attachment that can be used to sanitize furniture, carpets, and mattresses.  Mop pads velcro on and it has a low profile mop head so it's great for getting under cabinets and furniture.
