Shark Sonic Duo Carpet & Hard Floor Cleaner w/ Accessories
Where have you been all my life?!?! Unbelievable!
I paid a fortune for laminate floors a few years ago. I chose laminate over hardwood because I have two dogs and didn't want to risk scratch-able hardwood. After all, the brand I bought swears a Great Dane's toenails can't ruin it. (My dogs are not anywhere near that big!).
Since you have to be careful using commercial cleaners on laminate, I have not been able to find anything I can use that doesn't leave streaks behind...until now. I also HATE mopping floors more than the average root canal! This machine is a Godsend!
Just what I needed!
I got this several days ago and could not wait to use it. I had some old stains that just wouldn't come out even when I got down on my hands and knees to scrub it. This product took it out. Very light weight too. Easy instructions. I was very impressed! It also got rid of the old pet urine stains. Carpet looks great! Have not used on floors yet, but i know they will look great too. Try it, you'll love it!
bought to replace my Haan
I just got this the other day and used it on my stone tile floor in the kitchen. It hasn't been properly cleaned since my Haan steam cleaner broke a few months ago. Although I would have liked this to be a steam cleaner the sonic movement more then makes up for it. I used the stronger mix formula for the first clean, since it's been so long. And I've got to say that I was really impressed ! It even loosened up the wax I had spilt on the floor. You do have to sweep or vacuum first, and in my case, also after. But my floor looks awesome. And it gets right up to the edges since its a soft cloth. Even hit my bare foot a few times with no injuries. The Haan burned my foot because of the steam. This was a very good purchase. No regrets :)
I love this floor cleaner!!! It does it all...If you are hesitant about ordering this, dont be..This is a great product ...I have many types of floor cleaners but this one is by far the best of the best.................
MY CLEANING LADY GIVES IT TWO THUMBS UP
And so do I. I really do not understand the bad reviews.
I had it for awhile before I ever used it but I finally put it together and decided to first try it on one of my wool carpets that has stains that I have never been able to get rid of no matter how hard I tried. I pretreated the rug and then used the rug cleaner with the pads for the carpet and waited to see what happened. I was really pleasantly surprised how well it removed those embedded stains. So i decided to use it on my porcelain tile floor in the kitchen. It worked marvelously. I was so anxious for my cleaning person to try it as I have a Haan and she hates it because it leaks and instead got on her hands and knees to clean the kitchen and bathroom floors.
After a few days I checked to see if the stains in the rug had returned as they tend to do but they didn't. I don't believe this is meant for deep cleaning of the rugs,but I do think it does a great job of keeping the rugs fresh and it does a great job on he floor. And if you think the cleaning products are too expensive, then there are plenty of cleaning products on the market you can use instead
This machine was purchased with the thought. "I can't lose anything by trying it" I thought no way can it do all of that ! Guess what. It can! I can only say I was blown away how easy it was to use. The machine has saved me from hiring n g strangers to come in my home and clean carpets. It got out ALL the stains from my large dog . I also have hardwood and tile and it cleaned sol much better than my old sniffer.. My white socks stay white when I walk through afterwards. Not to speak of the money saved.$$$$$
IF YOU HAVE A HOME WITH FLOORS TO CLEAN ladies buy it!!! I guard this machine and won't let my sister borrow it for fear o f it not returning. Lol
I have a Shark vacuum already so I was already a Shark fan. But Shark has absolutely outdone themselves!
Got this yesterday and couldn't wait to test it. I have very old non wax linoleum in the kitchen that just would not shine and always looked dirty and dull after hand scrubbing and rinsing. Just used this wonderful machine and this old floor is clean and shining like it hasn't in years. It will eventually be replaced but I know whatever I use this machine on will be great. My ceramic tile in the bathroom will be next and my old carpet that I am trying to get by with for a few more years. Haven't done that yet but I am sure this machine will perk everything up. I have mobility issues with one of my arms and this machine makes cleaning easy. The cleaners smell wonderful and the house smells so fresh after using the hard floor cleaner. The size of the machine makes it easy to store in a closet. Thanks Shark for another great product!
Great Little Machine
Have tried other carpet cleaners on my Royal Palace rugs; however, this little cleaner really gets the job done. It even did better than professional cleaning. The best part about it is none of the stains came back. Great purchase.
what a though little machine!!
so I thought what to I have to loose, so I order this machine to see how it works. Wow was I surprised, this little machine is though, all my stains are out of the carpets, so easy to use, don't take up a lot of space. I love it, I must say the Shark didn't again!!
I did a lot of researching of other reviews before I purchased this machine. I saw a lot of mixed reviews in regards to the carpet cleaning. I am down to 2 carpeted rooms in my house with one being replaced with hardwood next month, I am so excited, I hate carpet! Which was the main reason I bought this machine. I have 2 dogs, one of which loves to urinate on carpet, yay for me; it just so happens to be my bedroom :/ I bought a Bissell Pet stain heavy duty carpet shampoo machine a couple years ago, and at the time, it was better than nothing I suppose, but it never got ride of the stains, and for someone like myself who hates carpet to begin with, I couldn't stand the musty feeling in the room afterwards, and I always opened the windows, turned the fans on, just to make sure it would dry all the way. But once dry, it felt musty to me and hello yellow stains still there. I have tried everything to get rid of them, nothing every worked, it was very frustrating. So I was a little hesitant when I purchased this because a lot of people where saying the carpet cleaning was not good, I even watched this guy on utube that demonstrates all the latest and greatest cleaning machines so you can decide for yourself. So to shorten up this long story, I purchased this and when it arrived I read everything carefully before doing anything! Then I vacuumed my floor as best as I could and sprayed the pretreater spray and let it set, one thing I have discovered, is the longer you let it sit, the better it works, my stains were horrific, so i sprayed it good and let it sit a couple of hours. Then came sonic time, I put on the spot carpet pad and went to work, I stayed in that little area for probably 30 minutes moving that machine in every which direction I could move it. let it dry over night, and to my amazement, that stains were almost completely gone, not only that but you know those indents on your carpet from heavy furniture that you can never seem to get to come back up? Ya, those indents were gone, carpet livened up! With the stains almost gone, I went in for round 2, sprayed the spray, let it sit this time for about 10 minutes, then used the sonic again for about 10 minutes and let dry, then I vacuumed good and wallah, stains gone!! carpet smelled clean, did not feel musty, for the first time in 3 years, I did not mind the carpet in my room, it just felt clean. Then I used the regular carpet pad to do my whole room, not just the spot where my dog loves to urinate and it looks a million times better in there, it feels better. All I can say is if your using it on carpet and not getting the results you hoped for, play with it, leave the spray on longer before you sonic, and when you do sonic, work at it, its definitely not a once or twice over the spot and poof its magically gone, you gotta out some time and effort in to it, maybe do it twice in a row like I did, it swivels so turn it side to side, move it around, but it does work! And as for hardwood floor, its amazing, it gets in those cracks and pulls the dirt out! You can walk around in white socks after wards and not a speck of dirt will show up. I definitely feel that this machine is well worth the price, especially if you're willing to put in the time to get it to give the results you want. I would recommend this product to anyone! I recommended it to my mother and she loved it so much, she has 4 dogs and 2 cats ( I have a much younger brother who loves animals, and a mother who can't say no lol) and when she borrowed mine, it got rid of all the stains in her house, and now she purchased herself one and I didn't get mine back until hers arrived lol. Moral, it's not a magic wand, you have to work at the stains a little bit, not much, but put some time in it if they are set in stains, and you wont be sorry you did.
Ok, again I am skeptical about spending a lot of money on something like this. I was also very apprehensive about its carpet cleaning abilities. But I am very pleased with the duos performance! It works well on my girls carpeted floor, which is a cream color. It defined oh brightened the carpet! I also used it on my two little rugs in the kitchen, which were covered with grease splatters, and now look almost brand new!!!! This is an awesome product! I love the mopping ability, takes very little effort to mop or clean the carpet! Extremely happy with this purchase. <3 this!
Why didnt I invent this?
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, this machine, I have been looking for ten years for this, both my knees are bad, I really miss being able to get down on my knees to scrub my floors, I could not find a mop that I felt cleaned my floors the way I like them to look, now I have. I am thinking about ordering another one, just to have if something happens to this one. I cleaned my kitchen and dining room yesterday, changed pads and waxed the floors, they look better than they for years. THANK YOU!!!!!
