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!

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.

Hi, thank you for your question.

Having looked into your query, I have checked with Travertine suppliers and an advisor there has stated that they do not recommend the use of mechanical steam cleaners as they can remove the sealant and some of the grout protecting this type of flooring.

Thank you for using Argos Q & A.

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.

Answer(s)
This item lives for this purpose, large areas can be revived using the big machine and spot cleaning can be achieved using the hand-held model. no need to use any soapy substances and it takes evil smells out of the carpet as well. I bought the two-in-one and can recommend the purchase.
