Haan MS30 Vapor Steam Cleaner Recommendations:
There are mixed reviews for the Haan MS-30 vapor cleaner. It seemed like reviewers either loved it, or thought it was just an ok product.
One of the major complaints is that although it heats up fast, it also needs to reheat often. After every few minutes of cleaning, the indicator light comes on, and you must wait for the unit to reheat and reproduce steam before you can continue cleaning. The boiler also only holds a maximum of 20 ounces of water, which lasts for about 30 minutes of operating time. This also means your cleaning time is interrupted to stop and refill the boiler.
On the positive side, the Haan MS-30 comes with many attachments to tackle all your cleaning projects. Reviewers said it was easy to use, quiet, effective and reliable. One reviewer wrote that she was amazed at how clean her floors were after using the MS-30. She has a lot of foot and dog traffic, but she was completely impressed with the cleaning ability of the Haan.
The only other comment is the manufacturer recommends using either distilled or de-mineralized water in the unit. If mineral build occurs it could cause a failure in steam output. If you use tap water, you might need to clean the unit monthly with vinegar and water to prevent mineral build up.
