Will the Shark Blast & Scrub Steam Pocket Mop Do Your Chores Easier?

​According to Shark, this specific model has a powerful design to make your household chores faster as it deep cleans and sanitizes the floors simultaneously.

The Shark Blas & Scrub Steam Pocket Mop has an intelligent electronic steam control with three different settings.

Now you have complete control over your floor cleaning tasks by either using the correct amount of steam to clean your hard to wooden floors and it keeps it sanitized without using chemicals.

You can choose the low setting for regular dusting, medium for you daily mopping and the high setting for wide-ranging cleaning.

At the same time, the steam mop emits high-pressure steam when you need to clean stubborn stains.

All you need to do is push the head release button, and it releases the mop head that delivers the required steam to get the job done.

With these three settings available you can use the LO setting for cleaning hardwood, laminated floors and marble floors.

The MED setting is great to use on hardwood, marble, stone and tiled floors while the HI settings made to clean the same floor types as the MED setting.

The input power of this appliance is 120 volts, and it consumes 1000W making it a very efficient steam mop.

With this model, you have a tank capacity of 18 OZ to clean floors thoroughly while steaming.

Included you receive four steam pads one triangle washable all-purpose scrub pocket pad, one by extra large rectangle all-purpose pocket pad, one stain blast & scrub pad to clear away the dried & tough stains, and one square reusable all-purpose scrub pocket pad.

The steam mop moves around easily and only weighs 7 LBS, and it comes with a one-year limited warranty.

Besides receiving the pads, you also receive a triangle mop head to clean hard to reach corners, the extra large mop head designed for cleaning larger areas, a rectangle mop head for all-purpose cleaning, a filling flask, and a plastic stain scrubber.

What makes the S4601WM model unique is the water filtration system as it reduces the hardness of water and rids it of calcifying forming lime compounds that usually infect steam mops.

However, we still recommend that you either use distilled or boiled water. Read: Shark Lift Away Professional Steam Pocket Mop S3901 Review

I am a stay at home mom who loves to have everything spotless. The story behind this site is that I wanted to buy a mop and I did lots of research for it. I found that I could provide a better voice to this subject as there are no or very fewer people talking about the mops.
