The Shark Genius S5003D Steam Pocket Mop System is a Shark steam cleaner that looks like any other steam mop you might find nowadays but it is actually a unit that has a few unique and innovative design features that make it quite easy to use around the house. Which is why I couldn’t wait to try it out and see if it could do a great job on my floors. Here is the result of that review.
One of the first things to catch my eye about this steam mop was its size. It’s a unit that seems to be just the right size for my cleaning needs. It wasn’t too tall, like some units can be, but it also didn’t have me hunched over like some other steam mops have in the past. It was just the right height for me to comfortably move it around the house. And it had a pretty good sized reach thanks to its 22-foot power cord
The next thing to catch my attention is the water tank size. It only held about 11.8-ounces of water. However, I did notice that even though it didn’t hold a lot of water, it wasn’t limited a whole lot by that fact. In other words, I don’t feel like I had to refill it all the time. However, if it would’ve had a bigger tank, then I imagine it would’ve worked even longer, but I think that I’m just being picky.
What I really liked about this steam mop was its head. It had an innovative head that could be used on both sides. But being reversible isn’t the best thing about this feature. It’s the fact that when you flip it over it initiates the “Steam Blaster.” A feature that shoots a big stream of steam directly in front of the mop. This feature not only is great and is easy to use but it’s also quite fun to use. I found myself using it quite a bit as I did my chores. Steam Blaster really powered through some sticky messes – which means I didn’t have to use a lot of elbow grease on them. It was very nice.
Everything considered, I felt like this was a great steam mop. It’s easy to assemble, is lightweight and does a great job of cleaning. Sure, it might not be the best of the best, but it’s still a great steam cleaner that does a great job.
