That’s the promise of the UK’s best-selling steam mop, the Vax S7, anyway. It’s certainly a versatile tool for all kinds of home cleaning tasks, and if it does half of what it claims it’ll save your tons of time and hassle.
But DOES it work? That’s what we’re here to find out!

Product Features and Technical Details
This multifunction steam mop and cleaner measures 0.29 x 1.22 x 0.23 metres. It has a water capacity of 0.4 litres which can generate steam for as long as 15 minutes.
It weighs a mere 2.7 kg – much lighter than the 6 kg Polti Vaporetto Go Steam Cleaner, for example. And it’s more powerful than the Morphy Richards 720020, with the Vax S7 outputting 1600 Watts compared to 1500.
Easy to Control. You will find that it is easy to manoeuvre, giving you the power to clean even hard-to-reach areas in your home. It also has an angular floorhead for corners and tight spots.
Handheld Mode. If you want to work on smaller and high surfaces, it can work as a handheld model, which works on mirrors, taps, and windows among others.
Quick Steam Generation. It can generate steam in just a matter of 20-25 seconds.
Numerous Accessories. You will get 16 separate tools – one for every occasion!
There’s a reason this is the current bestseller in Britain – it’s great, and great value-for-money. It works well, is flexible, and easy to use. The fast time-to-steam is really a bonus. You can spot a stain and be working on it half a minute later.
Being so affordable, it’s normal that the device isn’t perfect. We didn’t have any problems with our test model, but then again, we didn’t use it every day for a year. There are a few reports of these stopping working quite suddenly – it seems the heating element is a little prone to slipping and not doing its job.
- Easy to maneuver
- Detachable water tank
- Starts quickly
- Large mop head
- Reports of early breakage
- Difficult to remove nozzle
