Although the basic instructions are enclosed you need access to a computer to download the full instructions although it does have a complete list of health and safety do's and don'ts enclosed!
Due to the shape of the water and shampoo tanks I found it difficult to fill as you need to hold the tank with one hand whilst trying to sort out the measurement of water and shampoo and then pour this into the seperate tanks, which was extremeley difficult and frustrating!
However, Vax Steam Mop is extremely easy to put together, and the mop heads are easy to attach. It heats up very quickly and is light and easy to use, the mop glids effortlessly on hard floors and the swivel head allows it to go into the cornors and around furniture. The long cord is particularly useful and the shampoo has a lovely fresh smell which makes your home feel very clean and fresh.
It leaves vinyl and wood flooring very clean, with minimal excess water which results in a very fast dry and shiny surface and with the added addition of the shampoo you can ensure that your hard floors are very clean. A godsend if you have children and dogs in the same house!!
I did use it on my carpets but because you cannot see any difference after steaming felt very disappointed. We do have a high traffic area downstairs and as the steamer didn't actually clean the carpets felt that it was a waste of time. I did try to use it on the stair carpets but the head is too large to do this.
It does what it says on the box it is a hard floor steamer and this is does 100% perfectly.
Amazing yet compact steam cleaner.
Brilliantly amazing & probably the best on the market. Just two little clicks and the filling up of the chambers and you're ready to rock and roll. Well, steam clean anyway!
I live in a house with just about every floor surface except for lino and this amazing machine has deep cleaned all of them. It has a scrubbing head which is brilliant for tiles - I think they are cleaner than when they were new! A flat head that fits over the brush head, which you attach velcro microfibre pads to & a carpet glider that fits over all three & stands proud of them all.
I found that it left all the floors just a little damp but totally streak free and the 'mop' pad seemed to 'grab the dirt' that is left behind by the vacuum. It did this with ease too which amazed me as I have had other steam cleaners in the past which I had either abandoned in the garage or given away after one or two uses as I found a traditional mop and bucket was better.
One thing I was completely thrown by, was how easy this machine was to assemble and use. My rugs are looking better than they have in a long time and my house smells lovely and fresh too - no mean feat when you have muddy dogs & sons who play rugby twice a week and come home leaving a pathway of mud on their wake. I would definitely recommend this machine above any other I have tried - I might even throw away my trusty old mop and bucket!
I have tried this and my floors came up sparkling and actually made my house smell fresh. Works well on different surfaces too. Would recommend to anyone who has a lot of wooden/laminate flooring. It is sturdy cleaner and stays together well. Even carpets get a lovely re-fresh from using it too. Well worth the money as feels like it will last awhile. Two thumbs up for this product.
effective steam mop
The Vax S3S+ Hard Floor Advance comes in a neat box. Assembly is simple as you have to connect the handle together, very simple just a click. The water and detergent containers are easily filled, it comes with a measuring jug and a 250 ml bottle of citrus lemon. It's very quick to heat up. A simple rotating dial switches between lino. sealed laminate,carpet and wooden floor.
It is easy to use, the floors are left just slightly damp and sticky marks are removed easily. I thought the citrus smell dissipated too fast-I would have liked it to last longer. I prefer the coral pad (an optional extra) which seemed to clean my laminate floors without leaving any streaking marks, to the flat microfibre pad. It is very maneuverable and goes well under a low coffee table .
I would have liked the steam button to stay clicked on rather than be held constantly, and a nozzle for the small nooks and crannies that I seem to have more of than I had realised. The main head detaches to reveal a smaller head but this has stiff bristles which I did not want to use on my laminate as it seemed as if it would be too harsh.
I have never used a steam mop previously but this seems pretty effective.
Best Steam Cleaner On Market!
The Vax S3S+ floor advance and steamer has been the best steam cleaner I have used to clean a variety of hard floor surfaces in my home effectively. I have porcelain tiles , wood floor and stone tiles and i achieved great results with the Vax S3S+.
The cleaner comes with detergent which cleans and refreshes the floors well, as well as the scrubbing brush which helps with stubborn stains .
The cooling base is a great addition to this cleaner as its safer and does not affect the floor after use.
Overall, a great buy and a robust , good quality hard floor cleaner with the option of a carpet glider for refreshing carpets.
