When you have many different surfaces to clean, the Black & Decker 2-in-1 Steam Mop delivers the versatility you need. This unit is designed to work on a wide variety of floor types, including vinyl, tile, sealed hardwood and stone.
The Black & Decker 2-in-1 Steam Mop is one of the most versatile steamers available in its price range. Because it can convert to a handheld steamer, you can use it in more areas of your home than a traditional steam mop.
The digital control panel on the handle makes the Black & Decker 2-in-1 Steam Mop easy to operate. You can choose from three different steam settings to customize your cleaning job, and each setting is designed to handle a different type of flooring. A steam burst button provides extra steam when you’re faced with stubborn grime. This steamer mop comes with a few attachments, including a squeegee, grout brush and spray nozzle, that help when tackling specific cleaning jobs.
The water tank is removable, which makes filling it in the sink easy. An indicator light lets you know when the water is hot enough to create steam. This steamer mop heats up extremely quickly, taking only about 10 to 15 seconds to reach operating temperature. Plus, an extra handgrip in the middle of the handle gives you more precise control over where you direct the mop. Standing this steam mop upright turns off the steam temporarily, so you don’t end up with excess water on the floor if you need to take a short break.
The Black & Decker 2-in-1 Steam Mop comes with two microfiber pads, which are both machine washable so you can reuse them. The pads are extremely soft to keep them from scratching your floor, even when you apply a lot of pressure. The head swivels around to give you better maneuverability, but it is too large to always get into small spaces, such as behind a toilet. The cord on the Black & Decker 2-in-1 Steam Mop is 25 feet long, much longer than many other models, so you can clean a large area at once. One disadvantage with this particular floor steam mop is that it can be difficult to push, so older individuals or people with arthritis might find this unit tough to operate.
The Black & Decker 2-in-1 Steam Mop is more than a simple steamer mop, which means it might be more than you need for light household cleaning. While the price is higher than average, it allows you to do much more than a basic steamer such as steam cleaning the bathtub, curtains and counters.
