Euro-Pro has married super-heated steam combined with what it has dubbed Steam Energized Cleanser for a new hard floor cleaning system, the Shark Steam & Spray Mop, the company announced. The product is Shark’s first system to combine a powerful steaming system with a gentle, non-toxic cleanser, it added.

The Shark Steam & Spray Mop also offers 99.9% sanitization, killing germs and bacteria with no residue left behind, the company stated.

Shark washable microfiber pads transport the steam while loosening, lifting, and locking in dirt, according to Euro-Pro. New SaniFiber Disposable Pads provide the same cleaning performance as Shark’s reusable microfiber pads, the company maintained, but offer an alternative for germy messes consumers want to clean up and throw out.

Consumers can use Shark’s Steam Energized Cleansers, including a Multi-floor Cleanser Solution, to break down tough greasy messes, and Wood Floor Cleanser Solution, to help bring out the beauty in wood floors, as they deal with a range of household challenges.

The Shark Steam & Spray Mop itself works in three modes, spray, steam and spray and steam so consumers can quickly and effectively deal with whatever mess arises. The product comes with a Multi- Purpose Cleanser, disposable SaniFiber pads and a washable microfiber pad at a suggested retail price of $119.99.

“For years Shark has been a trusted brand in the steam cleaning category, and while using steam remains a safe, effective way to clean floors, we listened to the consumers who were looking for help to break down tougher stuck on messes and want a fresh clean scent after cleaning,” says Mark Rosenzweig, CEO of Euro-Pro. “The cleaners we developed for the system are safe to use around children and pets, and offer a fresh scent you don’t typically get by just using steam. This mop is designed to fit a number of consumer needs and was designed to give them the control to pick the cleaning solution, the pad and the steam setting necessary to tackle their given mess.”
