Details

The new Professional Steam Pocket® Mop truly makes cleaning hard floors faster, easier and better. With Intelligent Steam Control, you can dust, mop, or scrub ... this mop does it all!
  • This revolutionary steam mop offers three distinct steam settings, each of which is ideal for different floor surfaces and specific cleaning needs.
  • Select more steam for tough cleaning tasks like stuck-on dirt or heavy traffic areas, less for everyday cleaning, or very light steam for light dusting or more delicate surfaces.


With Shark® Steam Pocket® technology, combined with the patented micro-fiber cleaning pads, you can get back to life in a hurry.
  • Two-sided steam pocket pads provide twice the cleaning area of other mops, with just a quick flip of the steam head.
  • Comes with two Quick Release cleaning heads - a rectangle for general cleaning and a triangle for tight nooks and crannies, as well as a carpet glider to freshen and groom floor coverings.
  • Leaves surfaces cleaner than a traditional mop-and-bucket, which simply moves dirty water around the floor.
  • Delivers the perfect amount of steam at the perfect temperature to clean, sanitize, and dry in seconds.

FAQs


This FAQ page is a great place to find info, tips and help. Just make sure you’ve read your Owner’s Guide before using your unit.

General Information

Can I use the Shark® Steam Pocket® Mop on all floor surfaces?
The Shark® Steam Pocket® Mop is designed for use on most hard floor surfaces. We recommend that you first test an isolated area of the surface to be cleaned and review the use and care instructions from your floor manufacturer.

Surfaces/materials where the steam mop should NOT be used:
1. Wax polished furniture or floors
2. Unsealed or unglazed ceramic floors, unsealed wooden and wax floors, and some no-wax floors
3. In cases of surfaces treated with wax and some no-wax floors, the sheen may be removed by heat or steam action of the unit. Test an isolated area first to see if sheen is affected.

Steam mops are ideal for laminate, bamboo, hardwood, marble, tile, and stone (see manual for usage instructions).

How should I clean my unit?
1. Always sweep or vacuum floors prior to use to remove all loose dirt and debris from the floor surface.
2. Wash pads prior to first use to remove any loose lint that may have occurred in packaging or transport.
3. Select the appropriate steam setting for your cleaning needs. The "dust" setting produces light steam for a quick dusting; the "mop" setting is for normal, everyday steam cleaning; the "scrub" setting is for heavy cleaning for use with the carpet glider. It will leave your floors damp.
4. Steam your floors with a forward and backward motion.
5. Cloudy, streaky, or spotty after cleaning? See "Troubleshooting."

How do I decalcify my steam mop?
Calcification and mineral deposits can build up and impact the performance of your steam mop over time. We recommend using distilled water and/or Shark®'s water filtration bottle to extend the life of your steam mop. Order the Shark® water filtration bottle online at sharkaccessories.com or call 1-877-581-7375.

How do I clean the steam mop nozzle?
Calcification and mineral deposits can build up and impact the performance of your steam mop over time. To clean the nozzle, unplug mop head from unit. If recently used, make sure the unit is completely cooled before proceeding. You will need a small diameter metal wire, such as a straightened paper clip. Carefully insert the end of the wire into the nozzle orifice and move the wire back and forth several times, removing any deposits from the orifice. Plug in appliance and test steam output.

What is the best use for steam concentrator nozzle?
The steam concentrator nozzle will help loosen debris from crevices and tight areas that are tough to clean. For best results, use the "scrub steam" setting and spray steam directly onto the dirty area. Once the nozzle is cool, remove and attach the mop head to wipe the loosened debris. Alternatively, you may use cloth or paper towels to wipe the area.

To use, attach the mop head and place on the carpet glider attachment. Press the "on/standby" button three times to select the "scrub steam" setting. When your mop is ready, steam carpets with a back and forth motion.

Pads

Why should the pads be washed prior to use?
It is important to wash the pads in order to remove any loose lint or fibers from the pad that might have occurred in packaging or in transport. Pads should be washed with liquid detergent as powder can leave a residue behind. Avoid bleach and fabric softeners as well. Dry pads on a low dryer setting or line dry.

How long will the pads last?
Frequency of use, type of cleaning (heavy/light), and how often the pads are washed and dried all determine the life of the pads and when new pads are required. Under normal household conditions, when using the product for routine cleaning a few times per week, we recommend replacing your pads every 2-3 months.

How do I care for the pads?
Wash the pads with liquid detergent, not powder, as powder can leave a residue behind on the pad. Avoid use of bleach and fabric softeners when washing pads. Line dry or dry on a low dryer setting. For best pad performance, we recommend replacing pads every 2-3 months. Order online at sharkaccessories.com or call Customer Care at 1-877-581-7375.

Water Tank

Can I add a cleaning solution to the water tank?
Shark® steam mops are designed to deliver effective, chemical-free cleaning and sanitization with just ordinary tap water. Using any type of cleaning solution, perfumed oils or other chemical cleaner with your steam mop is not recommended. These products can damage your steam mop and defeat the benefits of chemical-free cleaning.

Do not use anything other than water in the unit. Shark® recommends using distilled water in your steam mop. Shark®'s water filtration bottle is also recommended to extend your mop's life and reduce the potential build-up of hard water residue in the unit which may contribute to steam performance issues.
