The Shark Steam Mop is a single-piece mop with a heated water chamber. Water in the chamber is heated to produce steam to help loosen grime and dirt on hard floor surfaces, which is then removed by the mop head. The Steam Mop was designed for efficiency, and is lightweight for greater maneuverability. Steam is produced quickly, and the mop head is double-sided for continuous use when one side becomes dirty.
