General Information

How does this vacuum compare to its competitors?
The powerful vacuum will achieve over 98% of fine particle suction on bare-floor surfaces, whereas competitors have achieved 92% while also blowing dust and debris around due to a rotating vacuum brush or a high-powered exhaust. Our vacuum is engineered exclusively for hard floor cleaning to achieve the best fine particle suction up to the size of Cheerios.

Product Specifications

What specific types of surfaces can I clean with the Vac-Then-Steam®?
The Vac-Then-Steam® is engineered for premium performance exclusively on hard floor surfaces. It can be used on all sealed hard floor surfaces – including sealed hardwood, linoleum, ceramic tile, marble, and other stone floors. Note that we do not suggest use of this product on unsealed surfaces, such as unfinished hardwood, unglazed ceramic floors, or unsealed stone floors.

On surfaces that have been treated with wax or some no-wax floors, the sheen may be removed by the heat and steam action. We recommend testing an isolated area of the surface to be cleaned before proceeding. We recommend that you check the use and care instructions from the floor manufacturer.

What specific types of surfaces can I clean with the Vac-Then-Steam®?
The Vac-Then-Steam® is engineered for premium performance exclusively on hard-floor surfaces and is not intended for area rugs or carpets. It can be used on all sealed hard floors, including sealed hardwood, linoleum, ceramic tile, marble, and other stone floors. Note that we do not suggest using this product on unsealed surfaces, such as unfinished hardwood, unglazed ceramic floors, or unsealed stone floors.

Your Vac-Then-Steam® is designed to clean surfaces that will withstand high heat and moisture; this includes lacquer and polyurethane coatings.

  • Lacquer and polyurethane coatings provide a hard durable protective finish that withstands moisture.
  • The sheen may be removed by the heat, steam, and friction of the cleaning tools.
  • Do not use on unsealed wood surfaces, especially wood antique furniture, unglazed ceramic tile, painted surfaces or surfaces that have been treated with wax, oils, varnished, or shellac.
  • It is always recommended to test an isolated area of the surface before proceeding, and check the use and care instructions from the surface manufacturer.


Cleaning tip: When cleaning finished wood surfaces, use broad, continuous cleaning strokes. To prevent surface damage, avoid focusing steam or allowing the cleaning tools to sit in one spot for any amount of time.

What happens if I steam mop without vacuuming first?
It is not necessary to vacuum your floors before steam cleaning them. Mopping with a regular mop without vacuuming can result in snowplowing invisible dirt, catching non-water soluble particles in the fabric, and possibly catching your floor. The Shark® 2-in-1 Vac-Then-Steam® makes it easy to properly clean your hard floors with a powerful, fine particle vacuum that converts to a steam mop in seconds. You are able to achieve a truly clean floor that dries quickly.

Can I vacuum and steam at the same time?
We have specifically engineered this unit for optimal performance. The product is not able to vacuum and steam at the same time as a preventive measure to ensure product performance. This ensures premium bare-floor cleaning, in addition to prolonging the life of the unit. If you vacuum moisture, you can mix water with sand and create undesirable cementation inside the unit.

Will the scent oils leave any type of residue on my floor?
No. Because the Shark® Fresh Breeze Mister is used to apply a subtle Fresh Breeze scent to the back of your cleaning pads, the side of the pad that comes into contact with your floor does not contain any oil. Hence, no residue will be left on your floors after you steam mop.

How do I use the scent included with my product?
1. Apply 1-2 mists to the Velcro side of the pad.
2. Attach the pad to the bottom of the steam frame, then affix the steam frame to the bottom of the cleaning system.
3. Turn the steam mop mode, wait 30 seconds, and steam mop your hard floors as usual, with the Fresh Breeze scent filling your home while you clean.

What sort of messes are best cleaned with each type of pad?
  • The all-purpose pad is a great all-surface, general scrubbing steam pad. It leaves a beautiful finish on hard-floor surfaces but is safe and effective to use on all sealed-floor surfaces. Use this in your kitchen or heavy foot-traffic areas.
  • The heavy duty shag pad is great on textured-floor surfaces, particularly ceramic tile. This pad is safe and effective all sealed hard floors and is ideal for cleaning multiple rooms and larger areas. You can clean up to 40 minutes without having to change your pad. For most homes, this means you can clean your entire first floor with just one pad.

Water Tank

Can cleaning solutions be added to the water?
Only water should be added to the Vac-Then-Steam®. No other substances should be added to the water. Additives will build up on the boiler, decreasing the life of the Vac-Then-Steam®. Most of the additive will be distilled out of the water. The remaining additive could end up in the steam vapor and, depending on the additive, could be dangerous to inhale while using the Vac-Then-Steam®. For these reasons, do not add anything but water to the Vac-Then-Steam®.

Thank you for your feedback

Is tap water safe to use?
Tap water is OK to use in the Vac-Then-Steam®. Distilled water is better for the longest boiler life. However, if you live in an area with hard water, we recommend using distilled water to prolong the life of your product.
Your feedback is on its way to us
Thank you for your feedback
Something went wrong, please try again later
Can I use filtered water instead of distilled water?
Distilled water is best. To be classified as distilled, the water is emptied of all minerals and undergoes a multi-step process. Filtered water is better than unfiltered for the boiler life.

General Information

I see that debris is stuck on the inside of the cone insert, which is inside the dust cup. How can I access it to clean it out?
You can clean the cone insert inside the dust cup. Remove the dust cup and the dust cup filters from the top. You should be able to see inside the cone once the top of the dust cup and the filters are removed. Rinse out any residual debris that may be stuck inside the cone area. Dry the dust cup, replace the filters inside the top frame, and attach the top of the dust cup. Reattach the assembled, clean and dry dust cup.

Dirt and debris fall out of the bottom of the product after I remove the steam frame. What should I do?
Over time, some dirt may build up at the entrance to vacuum path on the bottom of the unit. Often you can just let it dry, tap the dry debris out of the vacuum, and use the vacuum to suck up the particles. It should go up the air path to the dust cup if the insides of the vacuum are dry. Alternatively, you can use a sponge to clean the vacuum entrance. There are no moving or electrical parts in this area.

My floors are cloudy, streaky, or spotty after steaming. What’s wrong?
1. First check to see if the microfiber pad is dirty. If so, flip it over or remove and replace with a clean one.
2. If you are cleaning in a kitchen area, there could be a buildup of grease. Use a degreasing agent to clean the area first.
3. Review care instructions. Using powder detergents, fabric softeners, or dryer sheets can leave residue on the pads, which can transfer to the floor.
4. You may have left the Vac-Then-Steam® in the same spot with the microfiber pad attached for too long. Never leave the Vac-Then-Steam® in one spot with the pad attached for an extended period of time.
5. This might be left over from past cleaners used on the floor surface. Use the steam mop a few more times and see if the leftover cloudiness is removed.

The Vac-Then-Steam® is hard to push/pull. Is there any way to make it easier?
1. In vacuum mode, brush off debris that may be visible in the wheels.
2. In steam mode, change the pad if it is too wet or dirty.
3. In either mode, adjust the height of the pole with the telescopic lever. Often, increasing the height of the pole will improve the push/pull feel.

Dust Cup

What do I do if I see steam moisture in the dust cup?
Remove the dust cup and allow the product to dry. Steam will not harm the product, but dirt and debris can get caught inside the suction path, preventing dirt from traveling all the way to the dust cup. To reduce this occurrence, wait at least 2 minutes after steam mopping before vacuuming another area of your home.

Bring it Back

I loved this model. My all time favorite floor care tool. I don’t understand why you would stop making a product that works so well.

Please bring back vac then steam

I’ve had this product for many years. I cannot go back to vacuuming with one appliance, having to mop or steam with another appliance. Please, please, please bring this back. I lost mine during a move.

Mrs.

This is by far the best bare floor vac I have ever used. Not for carpets, bare floors only, but nothing escapes this machine. I have had mine for about 4 years now and it is so light weight & easy to use, it leaves nothing behind. Great for pet hair and dust on the floor! The steam aspect is ok, leaves streaks but for vacuuming I would not use anything else. I am older and vacuums are too hard for me to push around but not this one. Very very light weight - absolutely love it!

I had my steam vac for several years and I loved it. I have used several other ones even other Shark steam mops but no one comes close to the cleaning of this one. I believe that this is partially due to the heavier weight of this one. I am actually looking to buy another one just like it. After more than 3 years of heavy use mine broke and I could not get it to work . I would recommend it,

BEST THING EVER!

THE VAC AND STEAM WAS WONDERFUL! WHY DID YOU DISCONTINUE IT? With several dogs and kids I used this item every single day. I had one at home and at our beach house. It made it so easy to clean up dog hair, sand, etc and steam clean all at one time with one item. Please, please, please bring it back!

Shark vac and steam mop

My shark vac only lasted about 4-5 years. I tried searching for the replacement parts to fix the mop. Why do you not sell these items?? I won’t invest that much money in this type of vac / mop again. will buy the cheaper model so that when it stops steaming, i can chunk it and buy another one. I love the idea of the steam mop, due to the fact that I can use steam to clean and do not have to use products with fragrances in them due to my moderate asthma. I am allergic to most fragrances. But you should put...more

I miss my steamer!

I have hardwood floors throughout my house. The vacuum is amazing. Every time I run it through the house, I am both amazed and horrified by how much dust, dirt, and pet hair it picks up. I used to absolutely love how I could vacuum and then steam the floors. The floors shined and I knew they were clean! Unfortunately, after 3 years of use, the steamer no longer works. Oh how I miss it!! I will still give the product 4 stars, but I do think the steamer should have lasted longer.

A great product.

This is a great product for tile floors. I have pets and my husband likes to work outdoors so I have to clean our floors often. The V&S does a wonderful job vacuuming up pet hair/loose debris and the steam function helps to release the ground in dirt & sanitizes. 4 suggestions: 1. Buy additional pads if you have multiple floors to clean. I like the heavy duty one 2. Keep a spray bottle of all purpose cleaner for the stubborn areas. I usually spray a spot, leave a bit & then go over it with the steamer. 3. A...more

After you steam, immediately throw pads into the washer with a bit of Oxyclean & your fav detergent & they'll come out clean every time. 4. Keep a pair of ear plugs with you because the vacuum is a wee bit loud. Overall, it's a great product & a pleasure to use; lightweight, too.

I LOVE IT.

We have hardwood floors throughout our house. I have tried everything to keep them looking good, but everything was very labor intensive and didn't have great results. Then, out of desperation, I bought the Shark Vac/Steam. I LOVE IT. Floors have never looked so good and I exerted half the effort that I usually need to. Thanks for a fabulous product! S/N I used distilled water as I have found in the past that our well water will leave mineral deposits on the clean floor.

Does a great job!

I also love the Shark vacuum and steamer. I have two large dogs that shed.The vacuum part of the Shark picks up ALL the dog hair. I do have a couple of wishes though. A tool to get under furniture and in small areas for the vacuum part. Also the vacuum is loud with a very high pitch. The steamer is great!!The whole unit is very light and convenient and overall does a great job!!!

I am so satisfied.

I have an all-tile large house and I bought the Shark Steam-Vac after trying dozens of other products. I am so satisfied with its capabilities that I no longer need to hire a cleaning crew. I can do the floors by myself and the rest is a piece of cake.

I would highly recommend this product.

I purchased the Vac then Steam and it works great. I gave it 4 stars because I've never given any product 5 stars. There is nothing perfect, but I would highly recommend this product for people that don't have unreasonable expectations. Slobs had better look elsewhere because this product won't remedy your bad habits. Everybody else would be spending their money wisely.

I love this vacuum steamer.

I have a laminate floor in kitchen area and entry way and tile in my bathrooms. I love this vacuum steamer. My floors are so much cleaner than when I was just using swiffer products. Love the way the floor is dry immediately. My friend and her daughter came to help me with some cleaning before Thanksgiving and they both loved using it. They hope to get one in the future for themselves.

I absolutely love it.

I purchased my vac-then-steam about 4 months ago. I absolutely love it. I was worried because I usually do not make purchases like this. The vacuum does great on my tile floors, and the steam cleaning power is awesome.. I have a houseful of dirty teen feet, and I have no worries about walking around on my floors with white socks.. I have never been able to do that without ruining my socks.. I CAN NOW!! I LOVE IT!!!
