Best Steam Mop Review

We compared 18 steam mops after over 30 hours of testing and came up with these top-six top six Best Steam Mop:

  • #1 Bissell – 19404 PowerFresh Steam Mop
  • #2 Steamfast – SF-370WH Multi-Purpose Steam Cleaner
  • #3 Shark – Steam Pocket S3501
  • #4 Shark – Pro S3601D
  • #5 Bissell – Symphony 1543A
  • #6 O-Cedar

So, how did we test?

Performance: this includes heat-up time, soil-removal time and the amount of time it takes for your floors to dry.

Convenience, which is anything from the amount of time it takes the steam mop to actually steam, the cord-length, weight and even noise.

And lastly, overall usability.

Again, how much it weighs, the mobility of the mop head, ready-and-empty light indicators and how multi-purpose can a steam mop actually be?

Now, steam mops clearly make it easy to clean and sanitize hard floors, without hazardous chemicals.

Even so, steam mops are best used on ceramic tile, grout, sealed wood floors or linoleum flooring, but

always double-check with your flooring manufacturer.

Bissell - 19404 PowerFresh Steam Mop

So, our favorite steam mop is definitely the Bissell – 19404 PowerFresh Steam Mop.

It is not only the easiest steam mop to use, but was the top-performer in both the high-traffic and food soil tests.

This means bright, shiny and ultra-clean floors.

The Bissell had great additional features like the built-in easy scrubber for tougher stains as well as two machine-washable microfiber pad options that have anti-microbial protection.

Lastly, the Bissell offers plenty of convenience

features: a digital indicator light and several steam control settings, a lightweight removable water tank, and a quick heat-up time at 30 seconds, which resulted in a quick clean time at 10 seconds.

This ultimately resulted in about two minutes of drying time.

Steamfast - SF-370WH Multi-Purpose Steam Cleaner

The Steamfast – SF-370WH Multi-Purpose Steam Cleaner is our best multi-purpose steam mop.

The Steamfast can be used on a variety of surfaces such as office floors, walls and even kitchen appliances like your oven or refrigerator.

Although this makes the set-up appear difficult to use, the Steamfast provides several accessories and multiple add-ons to make all of your cleaning sessions convenient.

So, you’ll have a reason to clean… everything.

Another feature that makes this product stand out is the size of its water tank.

It holds double the amount of water than our other finalists and can be used for up to 45 minutes.

Shark - Steam Pocket S3501

The Shark Steam Pocket Mop: our top budget-pick.

Let’s first go over what makes this such a great bang for your buck: the pocket mop heats-up in 30 seconds and dries in two minutes, it is extremely lightweight at 4.5 pounds and has a double-sided cleaning pad, which means you can scrub tough messes without tracking any soil on the rest of your floor.

With a budget-pick does come some downsides.

The pocket mop did take significantly longer to clean dried food.

Plus, there’s some manual labor involved as well.

With the pocket mop you have to pump and push simultaneously to create steam.

Lastly, it was the most difficult steam mop to re-fill out of our top finalists with no removable water tank.

Alright, let’s go over our remaining picks.

Shark - Pro S3601D

The Shark – Professional Steam Pocket Mop S3601D in many ways is our runner-up overall.

However, it didn’t quite have one particular feature to make it stand out from the rest of the pack.

The Shark – Professional Steam Pocket does have several steam settings, added about two feet to its cord-length and can remove stains in about 10 seconds.

But, it does make a lot more noise compared to its competitors.

It is also one of our most expensive picks, but many justify the price tag by the addition of a triangle mop head and digital steam control.

#5 Bissell - Symphony 1543A

The Bissell – Symphony Pet All-in-One Vacuum and Steam Mop was clearly our top pet-friendly choice, which is worth mentioning.

The fact that it can steam and vacuum hair at the same time is a huge advantage.

Now, it is up there in cost, similar to the Shark – Professional Steam Pocket, but with digital controls, easy set-up and its vacuuming capabilities, it quickly justifies the investment.

#6 O-Cedar

Finally, the O-Cedar – Microfiber Steam Mop won our “speed demon” honor as well as being one of the most affordable finalists.

It has our shortest heat-up time at 20 seconds, while being competitive in its soil removal time.

It is important to note that it is sub-par in drying time at 40 minutes, which can become inconvenient if you have some last-minute company arriving at the house.

The O-Cedar uses an angled head mop and is pretty lightweight at 7.5 pounds, but doesn’t quite have the cleaning power like the other finalists.

All in all, the Bissell – 19404 PowerFresh Steam

Mop outperformed the competition in several of the key metrics we used to determine the best steam mop: quick heating time, can be used up to 20 minutes at a time, short drying time, efficient cleaning features and a removable tank.
