You have probably heard about the benefits of steam cleaning and steam mops – things like chemical free, green cleaning or easily killing germs, bacteria and dust mites in seconds. So, then you decide “YES! I want one of these!” and you start looking at your options and there are way too many!
Recently I was given the chance to review the…
HAAN SI75 – Power and Finesse Steam Cleaner
The HAAN Power & Finesse SI75 is comparable to the Shark Lift Away Pro Steam Pocket Mop. They both have a hand held steam cleaner in the body of the unit. I have a friend with the Lift Away Pro, so I was able to review the both of them and come up with some differences between the two models.
First, a handy dandy chart
Now – more details.
My Pros for the HAAN Mop…
The first thing I noticed was that the HAAN mop had a removable filling container, the Shark had a container that I had to use a cup to fill, it was MUCH easier to use the removable container right under the sink rather than fill and pour. Second, when I started moving the mop around the floor – I realized that the HAAN was significantly lighter than the Shark mop – which made getting around easier. The HAAN mop features Smart Steam Technology, it knows how much steam is needed in different applications whereas the Shark mop, I had to adjust the settings as I went. When it came to the removable pads for the mop head, I felt like it was significantly easier to “un-velcro” the HAAN steam mop pads than it was to unwrap or slide off the Shark pocket mop pads.
Check out how much dirt I picked up off my floor with the HAAN ultra clean pads!
My one con for the HAAN Mop?
I think this is purely personal preference, but I liked the handheld steam cleaner part of the Shark more than the lift off of the HAAN. Although the HAAN handheld steamer was portable and easy to get around – it was somewhat hard to put over my shoulder and move around the house with it over my shoulder. On the other hand, the Shark, I could not put over my shoulder when I was using the extension pieces… so… small thing I can get over with the HAAN. The HAAN Handheld and the Shark Lift Off each have very different hand held steam cleaners – both have a handle, they are just held differently.
So, overall, I am glad I ended up with the HAAN and was able to take the other one back to my friend 😉
