SKG 1500W Powerful Non-Chemical 212F Hot Steam Mops is one of the best-rated steam mops on the market. It has added several ergonomic values to users when compared with classic models like Bissell Powerfresh series.
The unit can be used on many surfaces from floor, tile, vinyl, laminate, curtain, carpets…It also has a steam on demand feature, the sound alert system to inform you if the water needed to refill, swivel head and shoulder strap design for a better maneuverability.

Pros and cons
This machine is a new design, therefore, it has some new features such as the overload protection and the sound alert system, while still remains the useful features found in great steam mops such as swivel head, triangle head shape, steam-on-demand, variable suction control. Moreover it is a rare unit that can be used as a floor steamer and a handheld steamer that you do not need to buy 2 separate units if you want to steam both floors and garments
The major cons are the water reservoir which is about 8 oz, which is smaller than rivals, therefore, you might need to fill more water frequently.
If you are looking for a multiple cleaning steam mop then the SKG 1500W Steam Mops is a good candidate to try.
Against for users with big floor areas, at this time you should look for the model Bissell PowerFresh 1940 (one of the most popular and highly rated steam mops with bigger water tank, however, this model is a floor steamer and can’t be converted into a handheld steamer)
