It comes with two different microfiber pad designed for different levels of scrubbing.
Pads are, of course, washable and reusable. Pads are easy to put on and take off – they around the mop with an elastic band on the pad rather firmly and can be used on larger area with no need to correct their position on the cleaning head.If microfiber mop pads are not able to remove stubborn stains, flip-down Easy Scrubber can be used within seconds for additional scrubbing.
Easy Scrubber is great aid, especially on tiles, stone, marble, vinyl, linoleum and similar floors. However, if you are using this mop to clean the hardwood and laminate floors, use it carefully, since it can, especially in combination with hot steam, damage sensitive surfaces. If your laminate is certified for steam vacuums and mops, then feel free to clean them using this mop, but, first give it a try on some small inconspicuous area – this especially goes for the ‘sealed’ hardwood floors.Steam strenght can be varied according to the present needs using SmartSet digital variable steam control (three settings – low, medium, high) . Using the strongest setting (‘High’), mop can operate for about 15 minutes, without stopping. On lower settings, operating time prolongs. When tank is empty, one can remove it from the mop, fill it and reattach it to the mop rather quickly.
Although steam and pads clean the floors thoroughly, to eliminate odors completely, one can use additional fragrance discs. Some people don’t like the idea of using fragrance discs or scented water – they want their floors cleaned and not scented. IMHO, they are right, but on the other hand, scent is not strong and rarely will cause any issues even to people being sensitive to such things. Give them a try and if you don’t like them, don’t use them.
Long story short – this little device cleans thoroughly, perhaps it is not EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) certified level of disinfection, but it gets it’s job done. Also, it comes at great price (below 100$) and with decent warranty of two years.
