WINNER: Karen M. (ariesnmo@xxxxxxxxx) — emailed 6/18 15 2:00 pm CST
I have 3 kids, a husband and a dog. Needless to say our kitchen floor gets sticky and dirty within minutes of me cleaning (or, at least it feels like it does). I’ve used many products over the years to try to keep it clean — vacuum cleaners, brooms, various floor cleaning products and even another steamer. My least favorite was the steamer and I’ve just used the vacuum and a cleaning product for years. It was the simplest and it actually worked.
So, when the people at HAAN contacted me about their HAAN Total D60 Steam Sweeper, I was a tad reluctant at first. After all, I had used another brand a while back and was really not that impressed after continued use. However, I did some research, read reviews and thought that this one might be different. I was right!
When I pulled it out of the box, I instantly knew that this floor steam cleaner was different. The thickness and quality of the pad, it’s own resting stand and the simplicity of putting it together to get started made me smile. In fact, in less than 2 minutes, I had it assembled and was putting water into the unit and waiting for it to heat up.
Of course, that didn’t take much time either! The instructions stated to let your steam and sweep heat up for 20 seconds. Honestly – I don’t even think it took that long! I plugged it in, hit the steam button and heard the water running through the unit. Once I hit the floor sweep button on the unit and started running it across my floor, the steam almost instantly came out and I could see it going to work! I had actually just swept the floor earlier that evening and had even mopped just a couple of days earlier. However, this little floor steam cleaner went to work and lifted off a lot of dirt I didn’t even know was there! I was quite shocked at how dirty my floors were — and how clean they felt once I was done.
I think that what I love most is that I am using water to clean and sanitize. This floor steam cleaner sanitizes and kills 99.9% of bacteria and germs. To me, that is huge! I hate chemicals. I have recently started using those which are not as harmful to my family – but had not yet found one that would clean my floors.
You can even take this steamer onto your upholstery or carpet to disinfect and sanitize! I don’t think I even thought about needing to do that, but it makes so much sense!! When I think of the traffic on my floors and what is probably hiding deep in the carpet – it makes me cringe. I love that I can now reduce germs and bacteria on other surfaces in my home – without buying another appliance.
I loved the ease of use of the unit. The HAAN D60 Total Steam Sweeper combines the work of two into one. I can both sweep and clean the floor at the same time. It really does save me time. I run the steam and sweep over my floor once. Not twice like when I sweep and then mop. It really saves me a lot of time and time is a precious commodity to me.
Having tried another brand I really was so skeptical that this floor steam cleaner would be any different. HAAN has proven me wrong — and in a good way. I for one am willing to admit when I was wrong and I was wrong about my preconceived notions about all floor steamers. They are not all alike. They are different. The HAAN D60 Total Steam Sweeper stands out.
