Instant HOT steam. Unit is compact
Cord could be longer and cleaning head a bit bigger
The Bottom Line:
Definately recommended. A nice compact unit, with instant HOT steam.
After reading many reviews on the Reliable Steamboy T1, I finally decided to get one. I paid $99 which included shipping. It took a month to get here as this unit is an affordable, high demand, steam cleaner.
I have only had the Steamboy a few hours, and have cleaned a ceramic tiled bathroom which came up beautifully, and a 20'x20' acid washed concrete floor, which has a slight rough surface and cleaned beautifully.
I tried a small area on the Armstrong laminate flooring which was very expensive and didn't want to take a chance ruining it. The part that I cleaned with the Steamboy came beautifully clean, so my mission will be to clean the balance of the armstrong laminate.
Prior to using the Steamboy, read the instructions. I have seen many bad reviews from people, but based on what I read, and by using the unit itself, those people that gave the unit a bad review did not read the instructions.
The cord could be a bit longer. For my 20'x20' room, I had to add an extension cord as it was short about 4 feet of cord. The cleaning head is a reasonable size, but I feel could be a bit bigger, but it really does a nice job of instant steam and cleaning.
The Steamboy leaves a very slight damp look to the floor, but that dries off in no time. Same as when you use a mop, you have to let the floor dry.
I'd say this unit is excellent for smaller jobs, and it is a nice compact size which takes up hardly any room, and is great for pulling out to clean a spot on the floor in no time.
Unit comes with 2 head cleaning cloths. I ordered an extra 3 when I ordered the unit.
