I would recommend the product, but don't buy the refurbished item. I used it for 5 minutes, and it stopped working, so I plan to return it to the store, and buy a new product. It's worth the extra $50 to have something that will work properly.
I've had this refurb now for two weeks and I still can't believe how great it looks and works! I was really reluctant at first in purchasing a refurbished product - but I have to say this vac is awesome! Thanks Walmart!
I used the vacuum several times, but I can almost have to cover my ears because of the loud noise while vacuuming. It hardly pick up anything. I had a trail of ants on my kitchen and it whent over whithout taking any. So, basicaly it doesn't work as a vacuum. You have to use your broom if you want to clean the floor before washing it. If you want to use it as a steam mop, you have to go several times over the spots to clean it. I don't know if the ones that are not refurbished work any better. I'm returning this vacuum today.
Took it out of the box, put water in, plugged it in, turned it on and nothing! The vacuum worked but the steam did not. Returned it the next day. Was really wanting it to be a great product!
one of the best buys I have made. love it
You need no cleaning products so it will pay for itself. My floor is clean as the day it was new. light and easy to use
I bought this thinking I would be able to use it to vacumn and steam mop. The suction is ok but the slot through which it sucks up the dirt is very short and narrow. It will not get near the edges of the walls or furniture. I was very unsatisfied with the vacumn part.I did not even test the steam mop. If I wasn't going to use the vacumn then there was no reason to spend the extra to have it. I returned it and will purchase a steam mop and a vacumn seperately.
Does an average job in vacuuming and scrubbing the hardwood floor. The unit is noisy so be prepared to clean the floor while the baby is awake or at the neighbor's house! We bought a refurb so it was a good value for the money. I would not pay full price for this unit.
I don't mind taking a chance on a refurbished product but I would at least expect it to work at least once. I plugged it in and the steamer light wouldn't even come on. It's obvious that the people at the refurbish factory aren't doing the proper repairs or testing the product properly. How else would you explain the same item getting 4 star reviews but the refurbished version of the exact same model getting only 2 stars?
When I received this product in mail the nob was broken so I didnt even get a chance to use it had to return it right away so please dont get the refurbished product.
This was my second try at a refurbished vac then steam mop from walmart.com. The first was $65 and did not heat up to make steam.I returned that to Walmart and decided to try again. This time it was reduced to $49 and now I know why. It had exactly the same problem the first one had, so I also took it back to walmart and went to home depot and bought just the steam mop for $46. It works perfectly.
I never even plugged it in. While putting it together and reading the instructions, I read where I could not vacuum any rug with it. I knew I could not steam clean a rug but thought I could vacuum some of my throw rugs (I have not wall to wall thick carpets). I was very disappointed.
I do love my plain Shark steam mop though. A great little tool and not heavy or cumbersome as the steam n vac is.
works great, plus a big savings just like new and with the warrenty how could you go wrong, shipped to house doesnt get any better than that
I've had a Shark for some years, and finally wore it out. I was at my cousins home over Thanksgiving and she hasone. I was helping her clean for bathroom floor, (she has two dogs and two cats and a husband, so.......) After I used the new Shark, I went straight to the internet to see how much they were, I found that Walmart had refurbished ones, and got it half price. I have hardwood floors downstairs, it is perfect.
I love this Vac-Then-Steam! I have ceramic and hardwood floors throughout my home. I don't have any carpet so this was perfect for me. It is also very easy to assemble. It has an adjustable handle so it is easy to use, no matter how tall or short you are. I have not had to change filters yet and I have had my Vac-Then-Steam for about 6 months. I vaccum my house at least 2-3 times a week and mop at least once (my puppy is very messy#. I have had no issues and am very happy with this product.
The vaccum works great. Normal vaccums throw the dirt all over when I try to vaccum my hard surfaces. This vaccum works great on all of my surfaces and it picks up almost everything. I love that all you have to do is open the container and dump out the dirt. My puppy sheds A LOT and it works great for picking up his fur and all of the dirt and sand that he tracks into the house.
The steam mop works amazing as well. The product has a feature that does not allow the steam function to work unless the steamer base is attached. I believe the instructions say that it takes only 30 seconds to heat the water and then you are ready to go. The steamer is designed to heat the water when the product is sitting straight up #like it does when you are not using it#. If you are like me, you can walk away from the steamer and use up the 30 seconds to continue cleaning. I have noticed, after the 30 second warm up period, I tend to angle the steamer #as if I am already pushing the steamer and cleaning my floors) for an additional 30 seconds or so. This allows the steam enough time to penetrate through the mop pad. Obviously the steam has to take a couple seconds to work its way through a dry mop pad before you can notice it really starting to work. I can hear the steam coming out of the base and then I start cleaning when I actually see the steam pouring out the sides.
I love this steam/vac. When my 3 year old one gave up the ghost, I went on line to wal-mart to order another one. Was very happy to find a refurbished one for about half the price. Shipping was great. Got here 3 days before it was due.
What it does well: this does a good job of both vacuuming and steaming. I felt that it provided very good steam, picked up all of the crumbs, hair and other loose dirt from my vinyl floors. In particular I liked the feeling of no more residue from past cleaning solutions. My kitchen is really clean for the first time without scrubbing.
What it doesn't do: this machine will not clean in the corners, behind the toilet or under the dishwasher. The head is quite high and the suction doesn't have an "edge clean". Also even with the heavy duty cleaning head I had to scubb some of the old residue/ dirt.
The convenience of one machine makes this referbed a good, not great choice.
Out of the box the steam tray wouldn't attach. Poorly remanufactured I suppose. Too bulky. To hard to change from vac to steam. I returned it.
When I received it to my house the steam part of it did not work....so I had to take back to store get money back and then order again online. Hopeing next on works :O(
