CSN Review: Dirt Devil Steam Mop

Like I mentioned last week, I was contacted by CSN to do a review of one of their products. I chose the Dirt Devil Steam Mop because even though most of my house is carpeted, we do have 3 dogs and the tile/laminate floors often get neglected. Also, Cameron's house is mostly hardwood floors and tile.

Here are the stats:


Contoured Loop Grip Handle
Quick Release Cord Wrap
Adjustable Chromed Steel Handle
Easy Fill Water Reservoir with Water Level Indicator
On/Off Power Switch
Power-On and Steam-Ready Display Light
Pivoting EdgeWedge Steam Head
18-Foot Power Cord
1500 Watts with ETL Listing

Included Accessories:

2 Multi-layer micro-fiber cloth pads - machine washable
Micro-fiber "shaggy" dusting pad (machine washable)

Carpet glide attachment for all carpet/rug use
Fill cup

The verdict:
Fast heat up time. It worked pretty well on my kitchen floor. Didn't leave a puddle of water like some of the other reviews said their's did. I like how its triangle shaped for those hard to reach corners.

However, when I put the carpet attachment on and tried it on one of the numerous spots on our carpet, it didn't work at all. Not even slightly. But I didn't buy it to use on carpets, so I can get over that.
Overall, I'm happy with this product and hope it makes me motivated to clean.......right.....


  1. If this steam mop is like my Shark steam mop (which I love), the carpet glide thing isn't really supposed to clean the carpet. I think it just sanitizes it buy killing some germs with the heat from the steam. I don't think they really adverise that they can get out spots in carpet like a carpet cleaner. I like that you don't have to buy chemicals or disposible refill pads for the steam mops.

  2. I want them to contact me to do a did you get them to contact you?

  3. Our house is completely wood floors (except for a few rugs) so this would be great for us! Thanks for the review :)

  4. Megan,
    Thank you so much for this honest and very helpful review. I just ordered exact same model the other day from Costco, and can't wait to give it a go on our porcelain and laminate floors. It was a toss between this product and the one from Shark, but lower price, and reviews like yours, determined my purchase.
    We don't have carpets so I'm not worried if the carpet-glider piece works, or not :)
