The handheld steamer comes with a squeegee attachment, but it left the window wet and streaky. I gave it a good rub with a screwed up sheet of newspaper and all was well.

The small hand held steamer does come with a squeegee attachment, but we found it left the window wet and streaky and needed a rub over with a bit of newspaper to finish it off!

Answer(s)
Hi, thank you for your question.

I have looked into this product for you with the manufacturers and they have confirmed that this product will not pick up dog hairs due to not having a waste tank that collects dirt. This will only clean using the steam that is produced from the product, and will not pick up large amounts of dirt and hair.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Hi, thank you for your question.

Having looked into this for you, I can confirm that the manufacturer of this product has stated this will be suitable on laminate flooring as long as it has been sealed professionally. They have also advised that you are to call the manufacturer of the flooring, to be sure the sealant will not allow the steamer to cause water damage to the laminate and whether it can withstand the heat created.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.
