First, I'd like to state that in order to get the mop steaming and moving easily for you, you really do need to adjust the handle height. Just play around with it till its the right position for you. I thought I wouldn't have to being only 5'3" but I still needed to extend it a bit to get the right leverage.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this new gadget! We moved into a rental that has sealed concrete floors throughout the house, and I mean the ENTIRE house!! Mopping was always such a chore cause I have to sweep, mop and use floor protectors like Pledge Floor Shine or Mop'N'Glo, and the whole ordeal would take me ALL day. No kidding. I'd have to wait for the floors to dry before I could apply the protector and with two small kids, it was nearly impossible to not have smudges or footprints left in the protectant. Not to mention my little ones would spend all day slipping on the hard wet floors.
I bought this, skeptical, and a lil' worried that it would ruin the floor protector. I was beyond suprised!! It really, really really works!
I don't have to haul around the mop, bucket, floor brush and now there's no long waiting for the floor to dry. Best of all, my house doesn't smell like a chemical factory. I find it easier to section out the floors too since I don't have to always worry about where I set the bucket! YAY!!
