Haan Indoor/Outdoor MultiForce Plus Scrubbing Steam Cleaner w/ Acc.
LOVE THIS PRODUCT!
I have used many different products to clean my porcelain tiles and wood flooring but this product is the BEST! Thank you for making cleaning the floors fun and you feel like you accomplished something that you never did before! Great for a large home, I have not stopped using this product since I got it 2 weeks ago!
most wonderful thing since slice bread
I was very sceptable. I had used other steamers and did not like the results. After seeing the demostartion I was slightly convinced. After using the HAAN Multiforce I will never use or buy another mop. It requires no effort to use and it creates No I mean No back pain and my floors are brighter and squeaky clean. I got one for my mother for Christmas. She has 2 other brand steamers and borrowms mine to do her floors.
I decided to give this a try. We have two dogs of our own plus foster dogs from time to time. I first tried this on my vinyl floors and it worked great. Got off all the paw prints plus sanitized the floor. Next I tried it with the scrub brushes on my tiled shower floor which is quite old and stained. It worked great! Got off most of the staining and really steamed the heck out of that grout. I also used this on my carpets. I did not see any difference as far as stain removal, but I feel a lot better knowing that the carpet is sanitized. I also steamed our bed. Then I got really ambitious and steamed and scrubbed my granite counter tops. They gleam! I am very pleased with this product. Tons of steam and lots of scrubbing action plus ez pay and free shipping!
worse experience with QVC
I bought this steamer expecting it to work really well for my needs in my home. I have bought many products from QVC since the 90s and have not had any complaints. This machine did not work at all; there was no steam. The water would not leave the bottle that it was contained in. I called Haan thinking that they could explain what I might do to remedy the problem, and they have the worse service you could ever imagine. I got put on hold several times; I got disconnected. I will never buy another Haan product. It was returned.
So simple, but perfect. Glides over with little effort, haven't tried it on concrete, but I didn't buy it for that. This is a no brainer if you have non carpeted floors.
The a Best Thing Ever!
I have owned 2 different brands of steamers, and this one beats them both! It is so quick and easy to use, which is perfect for my busy life. I have 3 kids under the age of 5 and 2 dogs, so if it isn't quick and easy, I'm not using it! With this I can mop in no time, and am amazed at the sticky messes it easily gets up. Then I can steam my carpets in not much more time than it takes to vacuum, which is wonderful since I have a crawling baby who likes to put whatever she can find in her mouth. My only complaint is that it's a little difficult to use on my thick carpet, but I've used worse. I am now a Haan lover!
With 3 dogs in my home I never felt my hardwood floors were really as clean as possible even after mopping. I saw the product on qvc and decided to give it a try. I love it! Lightweight and easy to use. I have only used the steamer with pads so I can't comment on the scrub brush feature. My floors feel and smell so clean instantly! No chemicals just steam. My only complaints are the cord length and the lack of storage space to hold all the "extras"-pads, scrub brushes, carpet glide and mat. The cord is way too short. I have to keep unplugging just to relocate in the same room. Other than that I love it!
So glad I ignored the negative reviews
I read reviews and often base my decision to buy a product on them. In this case, I am glad I ignored a couple of the negatie reviews.
This product was a godsend. We have new (1 year old) white carpeting. It is guaranteed for 15 years against stains, provided the carpet is cleaned with steam and steam only, So I used the Haan on the numerous tiny spot and one larger spot on the carpet. The steam alone didn'r get the spots out. I turned on the microfiber pad scrubbing motion for just a few seconds and the spots came out. Hurray!
I also really liked how it worked on the tile and linoleum floors. I prefer to clean on my hands and knees but not after using this appliance.
The demonstration on QVC showed the Haan being used on upholstery and countertops.
The manurfacturer's instructions do not recommend lifing the appliance off the ground nor tipping it in any way.
Perhaps my expectations were too high. I expected the "scrub" brushes to really scrub ,but they just wiggled around slightly on the surface of my tile floor never touching the grout. I expected to not have to go back over the floor sopping up puddles of water after using the unit with the brushes. I expected the steam to be greater and hotter than my Light and Slim, but it didn't even come close!! Back it went. I'll stick to my reliable Light and Slim. It doesn't have scrubbing capacity but neither does the Multiforce in my opinion.
I was looking forward to this upgraded model, however, it was so difficult to push on my hardwood floors that I had a backache within 5 minutes. I suppose I could have used the agitator, but I don't think that would be very good for the hardwood over the long haul. It also dribbled water onto the floor here and there. It is a lot heavier than the other models, which didn't help with the pushing either. Very disappointed!
I might order one of the other models. I've used them before and they were easier and lighter to use.
This is a very nice steamer but I have to agree with others that the "scrubbing" action on this machine is not great. Unfortunately, I have found it very difficult to use this machine due to my own physical limitations (hands and neck) so I will be returning it for those reasons. Sad . . . . I was hoping this would be helpful!
scrubbing action is not effective
This item is good as a steamer, but the scrubbing feature is useless. This item does not scrub, it vibrates. Scrubbing requires a bit of pressure as you would apply when you scrub something manually. This item simply vibrates on the surface which, without any pressure, has no benefit. I used the scrubbing attachment on my ceramic tile floors and what this wouldn't remove after leaving it on the same spot for twenty seconds with full steam and having used cleaner on the floor I was able to move with my toe or a fingernail. I read reviews where others stated this worked on concrete outside so I tried it there too where it did not work either. Haan makes a good steamer, but I would stick with the steam only version since the scrubbing feature does not warrant the additional cost. I have listed mine for sale hoping to recover some of the money I wasted on this.
