“Useless Machine Usless Customer Service”

Written on: 30/10/2014 by Aileen419 (1 review written)

We had this machine for under a year. Used it a handfull of times and now it doesnt work. My mum is eldery and forgot where the receipt was. Upon calling customer service(Vax) They could only offer a £75.00 repair charge .....REALLY! or a discount on another machine which turned out to be a lie as their items were discounted for everyone anyway online!! Never Again !!… Read Full Review

“Does what it says! ”

Written on: 01/06/2014 by Ashleigh40 (1 review written)

I have only had this mop a couple of weeks but so far so good! No problems with set up simply fill up water tanks and mop away! You do need to get used to how much steam you need otherwise the floor can be left a bit wet. I have 3 children and a 16 week old puppy so decided to give steam mops a go. No idea why I didn't buy one years ago no more hassle of filling and refilling a bucket or dirty mop heads. The one thing that made me buy this cleaner was because it also had detergent tank as… Read Full Review

“Detergent bottle”

Written on: 06/04/2014 by Izabellek59 (1 review written)

Have owned this product for around a year. Since purchase the detergent bottle has never dispensed any detergent, basically leaving me with no alternative but to throw the detergent away. This product is not cheap. I have checked the instructions and there is no mention of how to rectify the problem. Think I'll be going back to the good old mop and bucket in due course. On the plus side it is lightweight and glides along floors well. … Read Full Review

I, too, have had the same problem. One inure detergent is dispensing, now it isn't. I have also ready comments on various other sites with consumers experiencing the same problem. Vax should really sort the problem out istead of just ignoring it.

I had this problem too, it's to do with the way they've been stored before they are sent out apparently? It puts a kink in the pipe so the detergent doesn't come out. Ring them and they should replace it under warranty

“Design fault”

Written on: 26/09/2013 by lizzie3750 (1 review written)

Vax S2S Bare Floor Pro I've had this steam cleaner for just over a year now. Initially, it seemed to work quite well, however, I have had to contact the company several times because the detergent container does not fit well and has never been easy to take off or put on from day one. The plastic tabs keep breaking so there is a design fault here. It seems as if it is under too much pressure and wont stay in place and the tabs just break under the stress. The company have replaced the securing… Read Full Review

“Streaks on floor”

I purchased the steam cleaner 9 months ago and was so impressed! Then suddenly it started streaking the floor and was much more wet than usual. I complained and they have just recently sent me an alternative replacement and it does exactly the same! streaks the floor! Now I have two steam vacs cluttering up my garage!… Read Full Review

“Was broken on arrival and replacement was too!”

Written on: 09/05/2012

I must have been unlucky. I received the product after buying online direct from Vax. The arm that hold the handle was cracked on arrival. I called Vax and they said they would send a replacement handle (wouldn't give a refund) which eventually arrived in a plastic bag! This was broken too. I went and bought a Black and Decker which is so much more sturdy. Now awaiting a refund from Vax… Read Full Review

“Help is at hand for cleaning laminate flooring.”

Written on: 22/04/2012 by Dragoness (1 review written)

I have tried out Vax laminate floor cleaner and I'm really impressed. It is easy to use, just mix three capfuls in a bucket of 5 litres of water and away you go with a mop! The results really speak for themselves as the floors are clean, residue and streak free - just like it claims on the bottle. The smell - orange - is strong in the bottle but just right on the floor. I used this on the paint that 'appeared' on my daughter's floor when she was decorating her bedroom and it came off with… Read Full Review

“One of the better ones - still not quite good enough”

Written on: 01/04/2012

I bought a Polti some years ago and used it once as it was so cumbersome and pretty much useless. I'm always on the lookout for things to make life easier so I decided to give the Bare Floor Pro a try. It is a vast improvment on the Polti and very easy to use but doesn't clean anything as well as "down on your knees with a mop and floor cloth". It's fine for a quick clean every day if you have pets or children and it left my kitchen floor tiles clean but a bit dull. However, it was very… Read Full Review

“Excellent”

Written on: 24/03/2012 by jamilayz (2 reviews written)

The Vax S2ST Bare Floor Pro steam cleaner is essentially an upgrade from the basic Vax steam cleaner. There are two main differences - the first is the introduction of the steam cleaning detergent and the other is the use of Velcro pads as opposed to those you slip over the end of the steam cleaner. The premise is the same, you fill one tank with water, the other with cleaner, switch on, wait a minute (it really IS that fast) and you are ready to go. You glide forwards pressing the steam… Read Full Review

“Absolutely Brilliant”

Written on: 19/03/2012

I have only the hightest of praise for this cleaner. It is Lightweight ans surprisingly easy to use, its cleaning head swivels into corners I did not know I had. There are awkward areas under and around pipes, which till now I have usually had to clean by going down on my hands and knees, not an ideal situation when you have osteoarthritis. No mops I have tried so far had been able to cope without this intervention on my part. Now my knees are saved. I like the ease of maneuvering this… Read Full Review

“Steam Mop vs Mop & Bucket. Fight!”

Written on: 16/03/2012 by Koopatroopa (1 review written)

As this was the first steam mop I’ve tried, I was interested to see how it would fare against the mop and bucket. Following the simple and clear instructions, I filled one tank with water and the other with detergent (supplied), plugged it in, waited a minute and it was ready to go. I used it to clean lino flooring. Pros: The product is easy to assemble, light and stores away neatly. It cleans well and left a shine on the lino which is still visible many days after cleaning. The lino… Read Full Review

“Pro Floor steam cleaner”

Written on: 16/03/2012 by Deanohitchings (0 reviews written)

I have now been using the new vac pro floor cleaner for a couple of weeks. & what a difference it has made to speed & ease of the boring job of cleaning the floors. The simple quick straight forward job starts even before you start cleaning, the easy set up & quick warm up time is quicker than waiting to fill a bucket of water for the old fashion mop!! I have used it on three different types of floor so far real wood, laminate & tiles. With the supplied cleaner cleaned effortlessly with a nice… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/03/2012 by LyndyFB (0 reviews written)

this is a quick and easy to use steam cleaner thats much better than a mop and bucket. instructions are easy to use and it heats up in a few minutes. cleaning pads are easy to attach and easy to clean. on a lino floor its great and drys quick. on a tiled floor for the first time you might need a clean mop to dry up the muddy puddles it leaves behind, but the second time you use it the results are fantastic. great for cleaning up after pets and you can really feel the difference on your floor… Read Full Review

hi, well ive had my bare floor pro for two weeks now and i must report its fantastic, heres how it goes: water in the front bottle and detergent mix in the back bottle, put on a pad and 30secs later, your glideing across the wood/laminate or even vinyl flooring. as it uses steam it kills germs and smells, in one go. also the detergent has a fresh citrus smell that is very welcoming. it also has a atachment for revitalising carpets. steam kills germs that cause odour. also steam dries very… Read Full Review

“Throw the mop away”

Written on: 12/03/2012

Hi I have just used the vax S2S Bare floor pro steam for the first time, I have never used a steam cleaner of any description before so did not know what to expect. I spent 10 minutes reading the instructions and had no problem getting the cleaner ready to use; it was quick and simple to assemble. There are two cylinders on either side of the unit one for water and one for the cleaning solution, these slide off for filling. The unit can be used with or with out cleaning solution, which is… Read Full Review

“A superior floor steam cleaner.”

Written on: 06/03/2012 by PureHeaven (1 review written)

I am so happy with my S2S Bare Floor Pro steam cleaner. It is the best one I have used. I was delighted when I discovered the machine is free standing. My previous two cleaners did not have this facility and would fall to the ground if I didn’t support them securely against a worktop or piece of furniture. This machine is also straight forward to set up and simple to operate. The water and detergent tanks simply lift off for filling and then push back on again (the detergent tank gave… Read Full Review

“Excellent !”

Written on: 06/03/2012 by Nick0017 (2 reviews written)

Overall I'm very impressed with this. Essentially it's a steam mop - there's a fabric pad on the end and the machine pushes steam, and optionally detergent, through the pad, you then mop the floor as if you're using an ordinary mop. The pad attaches to the bottom of the machine with a Velcro-like mechanism - it's not actually Velcro, but the principal is the same. It's a doddle to attach and remove. Plug it in, wait for about 20 seconds for it to heat up ( I was surprised at how fast it is… Read Full Review
