QUICK
TIP: For
easier
pushing
and pulling,
extend the
handle length
Quick Start
DIRT CAN’T HIDE ON
EITHER SIDE! All new
design allows for optimal
cleaning! When one side
of the pocket gets dirty,
just turn the mop head
over and clean with the
other side of the pocket.

QUICK TIP: We’ve added
additional mop heads for your
convenience. Each mop head
can be used on your floors.
The Triangle Mop Head was
specifically designed to reach into
those tight corners and spaces,
especially those found in the
bathroom. The XL Mop Head was
designed to make quick work of
large open spaces. The Rectangle
Mop Head is completely versatile.
NOTE: Do not leave your Steam
Mop unattended during use.
IMPORTANT: Never leave the
steam mop in one spot for any
period of time with a damp or wet
microfibre pocket attached as this
will damage your floors.
PREPARE
5 For your comfort, you can adjust
the height of the mop. Just lift the
latch on the tube 90 degrees to the
open position. Holding the handle,
extend the tube to the height that’s
right for you and then close latch to
locked position.
6 Plug in mop and wait 30 seconds
or less for the mop to heat up.
Pump the handle of the mop by
pushing downward about 10 to 12
times to create steam.

IMPORTANT: First things first, always
make sure the mop is UNPLUGGED
from the wall when not in use. Never
fill the mop, attach the mop head,
change or remove the microfibre
pocket when the mop is plugged into
the wall. If you have hard water you
might want to use distilled water to
prolong the life of the Shark® Steam
Mop. Make sure you only add water
to the tank. Chemicals or cleaning
solution may damage the appliance
and could be unsafe for you and
your family.

Using Your Steam Mop
IMPORTANT: Make sure you don’t
use the mop without attaching a
microfibre pocket and adding water
to the tank first. When you are
using the mop for the first time, it
might take longer than the normal
30 seconds to start steaming. Just
pump the handle a few times in a
downward motion to prime the
pump and it should be ready.
2
1
NOTE: Make sure the floors are
swept or vacuumed before using the
steam mop.
1 Pull and twist the quick release cord
holder to unwrap the power cord
completely. A great time saver!
Plug into a 220-240-volt electrical
outlet. The power “On” light will
turn blue, it takes approximately 30
seconds for the mop to heat up and
the steam to be ready.
2 Pump the handle a few times in a
downward motion. This pumping
action will release steam as you
mop and allows you to customise
the amount of steam you want.
Begin mopping with a forward
and backward motion. The natural
motion of mopping will produce
steam.

height of the mop. Just lift the latch
on the tube 90 degrees to the open
position. Holding the handle, extend
the tube to the height that’s right for
you and then close latch to locked
position.
4 When one side of the microfibre
pocket gets dirty, just flip the mop
head and you can quickly start using
the other side. Dirt can’t hide on
either side.
IMPORTANT: Please wait 3-5 minutes
for the Steam Mop to cool off before
switching the mop head or the
microfibre pockets.
6
5 When the water tank is empty, the
steam mop will stop producing
steam. You can refill the water tank
at any time as long as the mop is
unplugged from the outlet. Follow
the instructions from page 4. This
goes for switching the mop heads or
microfibre pockets as well.
IMPORTANT: Never leave the steam
mop with a damp/wet microfibre
pocket on any floor surface for any
amount of time as this may damage
the floor.

Using Your Carpet Glider
The Steam Mop won’t clean
your carpeting or area
rugs. However, it’s great for
deodorising and freshening.
1
THE CARPET GLIDER 1 The Carpet Glider can be used with
the rectangle mop head to lightly
steam your carpet and area rugs.
Just place the mop head on top
of the glider and move back and
forth across a section of the carpet.
The steam mop won’t clean your
carpeting or areas rugs, but it’s great
for deodorising and freshening.
NOTE: Please note that the Steam
Mop rests on top of the carpet glider
and it is not a fixed attachment.
Do not leave steam mop with carpet
glider in one stationary position for
any period of time.

Care of Your Steam Mop
AFTER USE AND STORAGE
1 When you have finished using the
steam mop, and your floors are clean,
unplug the cord from the outlet and
move it into an upright position. Let
the unit cool 2-3 minutes and release
steam by pumping the handle several
times before removing the microfibre
cleaning pocket from the mop head.
3
1
2
2 Remove the microfibre cleaning
pocket by releasing the quick
fasteners and using the lavender
loop on the side of the pocket,
avoiding contact with the hot pocket
or dirt. Then empty the water tank.
IMPORTANT: Be very careful
because the cleaning pockets can
get very hot from the steam, so use
caution when removing them. Let
the unit cool 2-3 minutes.
8
3 To store the Shark® Steam Mop
hanging up; first remove the head
(after it has cooled and the steam
has been released) then hang on a
large hook.
NOTE: If you want to store it
standing upright then make sure
it’s leaning against a wall for added
support and safety. Always store
your Steam Mop with the microfibre
pocket removed, away from children
or high traffic areas.

1 We recommend washing your
microfibre pockets separately from
other fabrics to avoid picking up lint.
Only use liquid detergent.
(no powder detergent) Don’t use
any fabric softeners or bleach.
Line dry. Do not tumble dry.
2 If there are loose threads on the
pocket carefully cut the thread with
scissors. Don’t pull on them or cut at
the base.

Troubleshooting Guide
PROBLEM
The Steam Mop
will not turn on.
Steam Mop will not
make steam.
Steam Mop leaves
water on the floor.
POSSIBLE REASONS & SOLUTIONS
Your Steam Mop should be securely plugged into a
220-240V AC electrical outlet only.
Check your fuse or breaker.
If your unit still doesn’t work, give us a call at
Freephone 0800 862 0453.
Prime the pump, see page 5 for more information.
Is there water in the water tank? If not, add water to your
Steam Mop following the instructions.
Check to see if your microfibre cleaning pocket is too wet.
We recommend you unplug the Steam Mop and change the
microfibre cleaning pocket.
Make sure the steam pocket is attached correctly.
Steam Mop is hard
to push.
Make sure the steam pocket is attached correctly.
Check to see if your pocket is excessively dirty.
Try increasing the height of the pole for better leverage.
The microfibre pocket might be dirty. Flip or change
the pocket.
If you washed the pocket with powder detergent then the
pocket might be ruined.
Floors are cloudy,
streaky or spotty
after steaming.
If you are cleaning in a kitchen area where there might be a
build-up of grease then use a degreasing agent such as an
all-purpose cleaner or dish soap and paper towels to clean
the area first.
You might have left the mop in the same spot for
too long.
Do you have hard water? If you do you, we recommend
switching to distilled water.
