Cleans hard floors and refreshes carpets

This powerful steam cleaner is useful for a wide variety of sealed bare floor surfaces including tiles, lino, laminate and wood. A carpet glider is also provided for refreshing your carpets and rugs.

To steam clean your hard floors, simply attach a cleaning pad and then fill up the clean water and detergent tanks. Switch it on and wait a minute for it to heat up. Once the green light comes on, you’re ready to steam. Squeeze the trigger to release the steam and move the steam stick slowly backwards and forwards across the floor.

To refresh your carpets and rugs, simply fit the carpet glider tool over the cleaning pad before use. A full tank of clean water provides around 10 minutes steaming time.

Quick and easy to use

The Bare Floor Pro’s cleaning pads are quick and easy to fit and remove, and they are washable so they can be used time and time again. Once the unit has cooled down, the cleaning pad can be easily peeled away from the base. To clean the pads, simply wash them in your washing machine at a warm temperature using a mild detergent, then allow to dry before using again.

The Bare Floor Pro includes one 250ml bottle of Vax Steam cleaning detergent, one microfibre cleaning pad and a carpet glider.


Both tanks need to be fully in place before the machine is turned on to heat up or they could leak. The machine needs to have heated fully (light on the front of the machine will indicate when this has happened) before the trigger to release the steam is pressed.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Super fast cleaning for your hard floors 2 Mar 2012
    By FussyMissus TOP 100 REVIEWER
    The Vax S2S Bare Floor Pro steam cleaner is essentially an upgrade from the basic Vax steam cleaner. There are two main differences - the first is the introduction of the steam cleaning detergent and the other is the use of Velcro pads as opposed to those you slip over the end of the steam cleaner.

    The premise is the same, you fill one tank with water, the other with cleaner, switch on, wait a minute (it really IS that fast) and you are ready to go. You glide forwards pressing the steam button, and backwards picking up the resulting dirt - and believe me, no matter how clean you think your floor is, it is not that clean at all! The pads get dirty very quickly. The steam cleaning is quick, efficient, and if you don't overdo the swooshes of steam, the floor is pretty dry shortly after you have finished. SO much better than a mop!

    The original hard floor steam cleaner used water only to clean the floor. Ok, the steam made it pick up more than the mop, but it was just, essentially, water. The addition of the cleaning fluid really does pick up more grime and grease than the previous steam cleaner, and it has a pleasant refreshing scent as you clean, making it smell cleaner as you work.
    There is an attachment for refreshing carpets. It does NOT clean carpets. There are vax carpet cleaners for this job! However, the steaming of a carpet does kill dead any bacteria, and as this is what causes carpets to smell, it does kill dead any traces of floor smells. And before you think I am a cleaning nut, bacteria does appear on carpets from sweaty feet or paws, small particles of skin and sundry other items that wipe over its surface in the usual way of life. The steam cleaner does eliminate the smells but not the dirt on carpets.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Throw your mop away !! 10 Mar 2012
    Hi I have just used the vax S2S Bare floor pro steam for the first time, I have never used a steam cleaner of any description before so did not know what to expect.

    I spent 10 minutes reading the instructions and had no problem getting the cleaner ready to use; it was quick and simple to assemble. There are two cylinders on either side of the unit one for water and one for the cleaning solution, these slide off for filling. The unit can be used with or with out cleaning solution, which is great for a quick clean. Also cost effective. The micro fibre cloth literally sticks to the bottom of the cleaner & pulls off to be cleaned in the washing machine when it's dirty.

    I started work on the kitchen floor tiles first. I have 2 dogs and 2 children so cream tiles perhaps wasn't the best choice, Anyway I'm constantly mopping and because I use so much pressure on the mop to remove marks I break the handles regularly.
    How surprised I was to find that the steam cleaner actually cleaned the floor better and with out all the hard work, the head glided round the units with ease. I was able to use one hand to pull the trigger to release steam and to slide the cleaner back and forth & tougher marks came away with just an extra glide across them.
    The floor was cleaned in half the time it takes me to mop as I didn't have to rinse and squeeze between each stub an mark.

    The cleaner is quite trim so stores very well in my cupboard as it's no taller than a mop handle and the head is smaller than the bucket. You can even detach the handle from the cleaning unit and it would probably fit in a cupboard under the sink. The cable is ample long enough to get around with out changing sockets and stores on the unit between the two hooks on the handle.

    5.0 out of 5 stars absolutely love it 18 Jun 2012
    By Ellie w
    Verified Purchase
    what a god send, i LOVE this. i have wooden floors, not sure if they are sealed..... i also have tiles in the kitchen and lino in the bathroom and this works just as well on all 3.
    i moved my fridge out ... you can imagine what was behind / under it. 2 mins with this steaming on it and the grime just lifted off, very impressive. I dont even mind doing the floors now!!

    The cleaner that comes with it has a nice fresh smell, which is not too strong.

    storage is easy and cleaning the pads easy too.

    1.0 out of 5 stars Detergent tank 5 Jan 2014
    By Renata
    Verified Purchase
    I have two machines from Vax , they are not bad on the cleaning but break really easy and the spare parts are really expensive. before purchase take a look in their webpage.
    the 02 years guarantee does not cover the accessories of anything that breaks easy.
    The detergent tank costs 15 pounds + shipping

    I purchased this mop to replace my 2nd broken H2o.....

    This mop is so easy to assemble. The mop head clicks into a notch as does the handle, no screws and tools needed. How wonderful yippee !......

    INSTRUCTIONS short and sweet, read fully.....they are on a a small chain and attached to the mop...

    After assembling the mop, I filled the water to tank to max which is at the front of the device. I then filled the detergent which is at the very back of the device. You slide both of the compartments open, by a pull pressure action. Fiddly until you do it for the 1st time, then it really is a doddle.....

    At 1st I thought this won't stay on the head, as it kept slipping of. I hoped that when the Mop was in use it would stay on the head, YAY it did perfectly....

    The mop is very sturdy and made to a very high standard for the price tag, unlike my H2o's which had not only a short handle but a very flimsy one and cost a small fortune.

    I was really quite excited when it came to turning on the power. All you do is Plug it in, press the on button which will light up BLUE. When the GREEN light comes on it is ready for use EASY.....note though! you can still use it if green light is not lit up.....
    All you do is, hold down the trigger allocated on the back of the handle to start the steam system. The instructions say not to hold it down continuously because your floor will get to wet. Well I prefered to hold it down and give it a jolly good clean. The kitchen floor wasn't that soaked and took only 15 minutes to dry. Howevery my lounge floor being oak took only 10 minutes to dry.
