The Light N’ Easy steam mop is a pocket mop that I’ve been looking forward to reviewing. I’ve noticed that it has gotten a pretty good amount of good reviews on the Internet, so I was pretty fired up to bring it home and see what it could do. As you can imagine, I was pretty excited when I first got it and unpacked it.
From first laying eyes on it, I knew it was going to be a unit that will make itself useful in my home. It was lightweight, compact and could easily be transported around the house. It was a unit that wasn’t built to handle big, messy tasks but was designed to be convenient and easy enough to use for those smaller messes a homeowner often encounters throughout the week.
The first thing I really liked about this mop was that it only weighed 4-pounds and was ergonomically designed to be easy to carry around. I also liked the fact that once I had it filled with water and turned it on, steam was available in about 30-seconds. I then proceeded to use it to clean my floors.
It did a great job on all of my floor surfaces, with just a few exceptions. On my sealed hardwood floors and my linoleum floors, it did a really good job just blasting through messes. On my tiled floors, it did a decent job but I really couldn’t get down into the grout to clean it, so I’d have to say that it isn’t a model I’d recommend for tile and grout cleaning. I also couldn’t use it to clean my carpets because it doesn’t come with a carpet glider. That’s an accessory that needs to be purchased separately.
Taking everything into consideration, I have to say that this pocket mop is a decent one for picking up those occasional messes such as spilled drinks, pet accidents and the like but I wouldn’t recommend it for heavy-duty cleaning. It probably would be a good mop for small spaces or apartments, too. It’s an inexpensive unit that does a good job when used for the tasks it excels at doing.
It's an inexpensive, decent unit for picking up those occasional messes such as spilled drinks, pet accidents and the like but I wouldn't recommend it for heavy-duty cleaning.
