This Shark has been a great addition to my cleaning routine. I kennel and live with 11 dogs and puppies in a building with Pergo floors. The floor needs daily vacuuming and mopping due to the ranch conditions with hair, mud and whatnot. This Shark sonic duo for hard floors only is light, easy to maneuver and the scrubbing action is super. I did start using water only in the little bottle and spraying Windex/GlassPlus on the floor with a hand sprayer to get a nice clean look on the floor after the main scrubbing/cleaning with disinfecting cleaner. I am going to order a ton of the cleaning pads, they work the best when rinsed OFTEN and squeezed dry to continue cleaning so they don't spread the dirt around. I don't think I will get any more of the green cleaning liquid though, it was ok and smelled nice but it's kind of pricy. This Shark works best on very smooth floors, it's so-so on natural stone look tile which has a rougher surface.
I was happily surprised that this product did such a good job because I had tried the Shark Steam Mop first and returned it. It dulled my hardwood floor. The solution that comes with the Sonic Duo is mixed with water for cleaning and even makes HW floors shine without using the polish. When I first heard that you couldn't put the polish in the machine, I was disappointed but it's so easy to squirt out of the bottle out in front of you that it's no problem at all. The polish covered many of the floor scratches. I just used it today for the first time so I don't know how long it's going to look this good. I would definitely recommend this over the Shark Steamer. I don't have carpet so I just purchased the HW floor and linoleum model. Good price, especially when you order it on line and open a Walmart charge card. $25 is credited to your account for the card. No shipping cost to store.

Review 3 for Shark Sonic Duo Mop, KD400WM
Best invention EVER
By jbarnes0226 ,
I was honestly a little skeptical at first. It took me over a month of going back and forth on reviews, comparing prices, etc. I finally bought and I can't believe what a huge time saver and back saver this is! It was totally worth the money because my time is better spent on other things than washing floors. Our entire first floor (over 1200 sq ft) is laminate and before I bought this my floors looked like garbage. The mop doesn't leave streaks like some people say in the reviews. Maybe the first and second time using it because your floors are dirtier than they look. I used it in a 10x10 area and put a new pad on and cleaned it again and it didn't even look like it had been washed! The trick to streak free floors is changing the pad. I use both pads when I wash the floors. I bought the buffer and my 22 yr old laminate looks fantastic!
I have all ceramic tile in my home and getting up in age makes it very painful to mop. The Sonic Duo Mop has saved me from the pain of mopping. I would highly recommend this to anyone but mostly to fellow seniors. It is a back saver!
The only con is that it doesn't clean grout like I would like for it to but I am still happy I purchased it. If you have a large area to mop, I recommend having extra pads. It cleans so well your pad will get dirty fast and having an extra pad saves you from removing the pad and washing it before you are finished mopping. Also, I use vinegar and water instead of the cleaning solution which will save you money.
I am a very skeptical person when it comes to investing in products that will be worth your time and money. Prior to purchasing the Shark Duo (for hard floors only), my decision swayed back and forth from "to buy or not to buy" multiple times. I finally broke down and bought my "mop on steroids" (as I call it) and couldn't be happier. I am housekeeping at a very busy dental office that sees tons of traffic daily/weekly. The office has laminate flooring throughout and the regular mop I've used does not due itself justice. The floors are visibly cleaner and the effort behind it is simple and not backbreaking. Two of my co-workers also have bought this product and are very happy as well. If your decision is teetering, I would encourage the purchase of this mop.

You may wishe to edit your review as where you say "due" it justice, it shoould read "do" it justice. The word spelled "due" would be used , in example, The payment is "due" on the 15th of each month. Hope this helps.
I bought the duo because I am having difficulty keeping my tile floors clean. I have a Shark steam mop but it is just a go over piece of equipment. I was looking for a more serious scrubber and decided to try the duo. My disappoint came because I was hoping for a more commercial type scrubber. It is light, swivels and is easy to push. I wish the mop heads for tiles floors were thicker. My tile is not smooth, it has indentations of shells throughout. A thicker head would get into the crevises. I had to spend more time going over the floor than I would like. If you do not want a serious scrubber this will suit just fine. The floors do feel and look cleaner than before.
We are an older couple with health problems, but won't give in to housekeepers - yet. This cleaner is energy saving to us with its ease to use. It does a good job of cleaning. We've only used it once so we think with more use, our floors will continue to look better. We cannot address durability at this time. It did well on our laminated floor which had a terrible film on it. While there remains some film, we hope with each use, the remaining film will go. There is a nice shine which was not archived with hand mopping. Ease of use is ideal for arthritis sufferers. Good rating due to new item. With time, this could go up or down.,
We were introduced to The Shark Sonic Duo by a customer to use on her floors when we were cleaning her home. We were amazed at the results and immediately purchased two to use on other jobs. We are recommending it to everyone. The results are phenomenal . The machine is very easy to use. Our cleaning teams rave about it. Great product. Finally something that really performs as advertised
I Love this mop it’s amazing. I use it on my kitchen tile and my hard wood floors. I bought it because my last Shark steamer broke. At first I wanted to replace it because I like the idea of just using steam instead of products. I’m so happy I bought this one instead. The only thing I found is that it doesn’t have the light at the bottom, but then again who is washing there floors in the dark? Its hassle free and I never have to use a mod and bucket again!!!

Review 11 for Shark Sonic Duo Mop, KD400WM
By 11946 ,
I recently put laminate flooring throughout my whole house...I was looking for something to clean the floor that was lightweight and was easy to use...I suffer from shoulder pain so using the swifter was killing my shoulder and the Hoover Floor Mate was streaking my floors and I had to deal with the dirty water reservoir....This is easy to use ...left my floors streak free ....Love it!
This mop does a great job on laminate wood flooring. My floors look new again. Just make sure to get all the loose dirt off of your floor first by sweeping or vacuuming. One tip is to wash the cleaning pads with a liquid detergent. This will keep that foggy looking film from building up on your floors that powdered detergent leaves on the pads. I would highly recommend this mop.
Because I have knee problems it's difficult for me to get down and scrub my hard floors; the Hard Floor Due does an excellent job of removing dirt while saving my knees, and with a minimum of effort. I didn't care for the cleaner supplied with the appliance and am using ammonia instead; time will tell if this will damage the machine. It works well (so far) and seems to be of solid construction.
I had high hopes for this cleaner due to the great reviews, but it just doesn't work well on hardwood floors. It looks great while wet, but then it drys and leaves horrible streaks and marks. I tried going over it about 5 different times, using various suggested methods. The first time I used the cleaner that came with it, and that was not good. So I tried water only, water and vinegar, nothing worked. The floor was streaked and spotted when it dried. I did use it on the tile floors in our bathrooms, and that worked very well, so I guess that I will use it only on those floors, but definitely not on the hardwood floors. I was actually afraid that I had ruined the hardwood floors, it looked that bad.
First use didn't get much dirt up. Second use I sprayed the pads first so they were a little damp to begin with, and when I used the mop I pushed down on it a little add some pressure to the mop head into the hardwood to work up the dirt. Those two actions worked great. I used Bona hardwood floor cleaner in the sprayer instead of the cleaner Shark provided.
I bought the Shark Sonic Cuo Mop and it works beautifully on my laminate floor. I have tried many different mops, even steam mops and they all left spots. I just wet the pad, squeege the water out and put it on the mop and it works just great, you don't even need the cleaner and no spots left behind!
I've only had this for a few weeks and therefore don't know how well it will hold up but so far I'm extremely happy with the investment. I have mostly tile and laminate floors throughout my home and have small children and pets which makes it difficult to keep floors clean; however the Duo mop has proven to do a better job than a bucket and mop or other steam cleaners I've tried in less than half the time. It's simple to set up and use. No complaints thus far.
This is a great product, I would recommend it to anyone. We have mostly tile floors in our house and it is back breaking work to get them clean. This is saving my back, we have 2 golden retrievers and the floors have to be done almost daily. This product cuts the work time in half.
I don't like the cleaning product that comes with the mop it leaves a film on the floors. I use vinegar or Mistalen and it gets the job done.
