Amazon Reviewers Swear By This Steam Mop That Cleans Floors, Rugs, Glass, Grout — and Even Converts Into a Clothing Steamer
There are certain products on Amazon that, based on the number of reviews alone, we just can’t ignore. This steam mop is one of them — it has over 11,000 five-star reviews, many of which suggest it’s an outright miracle worker. The PurSteam ThermaPro 211 10-in-1 Steam Mop is a versatile little wonder that helps you deep clean literally everywhere in your home. It can tackle all types of floors, rugs, blinds, glass, mirrors, grout, and upholstery, and it even converts into a handheld clothing steamer for easily ironing out wrinkles from clothing. That’s a lot of functionality for a lightweight, easy-to-use steam cleaner that’s under $70.
The PurSteam ThermaPro’s versatility stems from all of its accessories. It comes with mop pads for hard floors, a carpet glider for soft ones, all sorts of specialty nozzles and brushes for getting to hard-to-reach places, a window squeegee, and (of course) the special nozzle that lets you turn it into a handheld garment steamer. “It has so many uses from cleaning the kitchen floor, oven, and shower to steaming a couple of dress shirts and works amazing for them,” says one elated reviewer. “It glides wonderfully across the carpet with the carpet glider. It made my hardwood floor look SO shiny! Cleaning my floors is no longer a dreaded chore.”
Many happy reviewers turned to the “holy grail” of steam mops not just for its versatility, but also because it provides 99.99 percent sanitation using just tap water. “My main objective was to reduce my use of cleaning chemicals, but was overwhelmed by how well the grout tool cleaned the light-colored grout that would only come clean with bleach and serious scrubbing with a grout brush,” one buyer says. “Using virtually no effort, this steamer blew out the dirt completely.” The thought of being able to clean your shower without using any bleach or harsh chemicals is pretty appealing, and the same can be said for floors. As one mom puts it, “I feel confident about letting my baby crawl on my floors now because I can feel how clean they are, and I love how fresh my house feels!”
Even pro house cleaners have taken the time to write glowing reviews of this virtuoso of a gadget. Says one, “I’m a professional cleaner and this product has changed my ability to clean thoroughly and more quickly. Some of the nastiest messes that I’ve ever tried to clean with other methods that require a lot of time and energy come out with ease.” Given that it’s easy to assemble and reconfigure, heats up in 30 seconds, and holds enough water for up to 30 minutes of steaming, we’re not surprised that even the pros have turned to the ThermaPro to get tough jobs done.
The only major caveat we came across while reading all these glowing reviews is that the ThermaPro might inspire a major cleaning spree. “I was so inspired by the obvious deep cleaning in the kitchen (floors, mirrors, refrigerator), that in the next two days I went from room to room and used my new steam cleaner,” says one buyer. “Did floors, windows, mirrors and was amazed at the outcome everywhere. It did twice as much work for about half of the energy expenditure.” We’re not going to argue with that! But if you do buy one, you may want to clear your schedule for the next few days …
