We’re hoping in the future that Thane will build upon the success of the H20 and introduce more steam cleaners. It’s certainly a mop that’s sold well and you may have seen it advertised repeatedly on TV and so hopefully, in time, we’ll get a few more entries on this page.
Our Verdict On the Thane Steam Mop Range
As there is only one entry in this collection, then it will come as no surprise that we’ll focus on the H20 x5. Ultimately, the mop seems to suffer from the jack-of-all-trades disease that many other steam mops and cleaners tend to suffer from from time to time. It performs well on hard floors whether that be tiles, stone or laminate – but it doesn’t stand out any more than other mops and cleaners.
In addition, so of the accessories are a little flimsy and Thane could learn in the future that as good as a mop or cleaner could be, they are also judged on the quality of the attachments as they often lead to extra expense to the end customer over the lifespan of the mop. Nobody expects a cleaning pad to last forever, but it should last at least half a dozen cleans unless it’s being used on hard, rough surfaces.
Overall, the H20 x5 can be described as a bit average. It does a decent job at the cleaning duties that it’s asked to carry out but doesn’t really stand out from the crowd as much as the hype would make you think. There are certainly better and cheaper models on the market that will do at least as good a job in some areas and a much better job in other areas. Hopefully, any further addition to the Thane steam mop or cleaner range will learn the lessons from the H20 x5 as there IS a good mop in there somewhere wanting to break out but, sadly, the H20 x5 doesn’t really make it.
