The SF-825 Is a total hard floor cleaning system in one versatile mop. Spinning bristles sweep up debris, and steam cleaning action deep cleans floors without using chemicals. The Sweep and Steam functions can be used separately, or together to make quick work of any dirty floor. Unlike any standard steam mop, the SF-825's spinning bristles sweep up larger debris that microfiber pads can't handle. Plus, by collecting larger dirt and debris before it hits the mop pad, the Sweeper function actually reduces the number of pad changes, saving you time and money. The SF-825 outputs powerful steam that deep cleans hard flooring surfaces better than typical mops or disposable-cloth floor cleaners. Steam sanitizes and deep cleans better than a typical mop - without using harsh chemicals that build up on floors and can negatively impact air quality in your home. Don't buy and store two floor cleaners when you can effectively sweep and steam in one powerful product - the SF 825 Sweeper Steamer.
