Grimebuster X5 Steam Mop Review

The Trueshopper Grimebuster X5 Steam Mop is a powerful steam mop and handheld steam cleaner. It comes with a full set of accessories. Which will enable you to complete all your steam-cleaning tasks.

The price is reasonable. But but main issue with the grimebuster x5 steam mop is that some customers have complained about the poor quality of the mop.

The Grimebuster X5 steam mop can clean and sanitise hard floors, carpets, work surfaces, ovens, hobs, tiles, baths and showers.

You can also use the Grimebuster X5 to clean windows and mirrors.

In addition, you can use it to deodorise curtains and mattresses.

Grimebuster X5 Steam Cleaner Performance

What I like about the Grimebuster X5 Steam Cleaner

The Grimebuster X5 steam mop is easy to operate.

Good for allergy suffers as will kill bacteria and dust mites.

The Grimebuster X5 steam mop heats up quickly. Well within thirty seconds.

The attachments all work well.

What I dislike about the Grimebuster X5 Steam Cleaner

The steam mop is made of poor quality materials and is therefore prone to breaking down. Construction is flimsy. The handles are a bendy.

Attachments are off poor quality and difficult to attach to the handheld steamer.

Cloths do not fit very well on the mop head.

Brush attachment lost all its bristles very quickly.

Instructions are of poor quality. As the pictures do not resemble the parts of the steam mop. This makes it difficult to assemble. There are no instructions on how to use the accessories.

Not powerful, enough to remove lime scale.

You have to refill the water tank quite often. Especially if you are using it at the highest steam setting.

Grout tool does not work very well.

Screw cap for the water tank is a bit loose and can leak water.
