Eureka 313A Enviro Hard-Surface Floor Steamer
Need a steamer for your hard wood and masonry? Well then the smart choice would be to go for a cleaner that can sanitize quickly, so you won’t have to hover over a singles spot for too long which in time will definitely cause the toughest and most protected hardwood floors to absorb moisture and warp. The Eureka 313A Enviro Hard-Surface Floor Steamer says it’s capable of doing wonders to your floors; well we just have to see about that.
Setting this up is just like any other steam cleaner or regular vacuum cleaner, a simple click and snap together assembly leaves you with a steam mop at your disposal. But a few days after buying I decided to take a look at what users thought about the Enviro, and one of the comments said that this is not good for unsealed hardwood, well now that is a pain, it defeats the purpose of cleaning any sort of hard wood now, unless you have those glossy varnished or clear lacquer coated floors, so I guess it’s on to tiles only then.
The whole feel of this Eureka 313A Enviro Hard-Surface Floor Steamer is not flimsy, although it looks like it could break if a poodle were to run head first into it, but even if it feels good and strong, users also commented that some parts which you barely notice will break and leave you with a worthless stick thing that won’t produce steam or even mop up dirt so I am not sure whether this is the cause of poor manufacturing or an unlucky customer, but it would be wise to be extra careful with it.
The steam is hot (220 degrees), and is definitely good at sanitizing your floor (if it can cause nasty burns on your feet the germs don’t stand a chance), but the steam heating system does need a few uses to be in its top condition, as the first time I used it the boiler was not at its prime and it was leaving little drops of hot water instead of steam, this problem fixes itself after a few more uses.
At 23 feet the cord is pretty long, so no more worrying about having to unplug and relocate often, I can go around the entire hall without relocating to another socket, but that is only if I didn’t have furniture all over the place.
The best part of this is probably it 20 ounce tank, that’s right 20 ounces! That’s more than 20 minutes of cleaning, I never have to worry about constantly filling the tank over and over again, I can just go through an entire floor of my house on a single tank, and still have enough to do the bathroom (well if I could get the tank on my shark then that would be great)
I do recommend this Eureka 313A Enviro Hard-Surface Floor Steamer for your tiles, but not for something too dirty, because it doesn’t absorb the dirt as well as other cleaners, but the temperature and the tank is great for maintenance cleaning.
