The first part of any of our reviews is to consider the quality of the product. When considering quality, there are a number of areas that should be looked at.
The first is brand. Looking at the brand of the product is often a really good indicator for judging product quality. For example you’d expect a much higher quality product from a brand known for providing excellent quality than you would from an unknown or even a budget brand.
Next up is material. Read through the product description for Shark Steam Pocket Mop S1000UK to get an understanding of the materials the product is made from. Some materials will obviously be known for delivering better quality item than others. You might also have decided that you’ll only accept a product made from a particular material.
Then we’re on to the product’s features. Read through the product description provided by Argos to see what the key features are for Shark Steam Pocket Mop S1000UK. This is great for getting a really quick idea of the quality just by seeing the sort of quality you can expect.
Price is another really important factor for analysing the quality of Shark Steam Pocket Mop S1000UK vs other products in the Steam cleaners category. It’s obvious, but you will need to set your expectations of quality based on your budget and the price of the product you’re looking at, against the price of alternatives.

So let’s carry on with our Shark Steam Pocket Mop S1000UK review and explore the product’s pricing.
Shark Steam Pocket Mop S1000UK Pricing
As you can imagine, pricing is one of the most important factors of any purchasing decision. We can find the perfect product for our needs, that fits the brief in every single way. But if it doesn’t fit our budgets, we simply can’t (or at least shouldn’t) buy it.
So we’re going to look at the price of Shark Steam Pocket Mop S1000UK and see how it stacks up against some of the competition or even alternative products from Shark. We’ll also consider other products that might be suitable from within the Steam cleaners category.
Just before we get into the detail of analysing the price of this product, we want to briefly highlight the importance of setting yourself a budget before you spend too much time shopping around for a suitable product. It’s all too often that we get carried away when shopping and find ourselves buying a fantastic product, but probably actually overdelivers on what we need and therefore costs a lot more than we should have spent. So spend a bit of time looking around at the sort of price you can expect to pay for products in the Steam cleaners category and use that alongside your own financial situation to set yourself a budget.
Then stick to the budget.

It’s why you’re here, so you’re obviously aware of how important reviews are in the buying process. This is even more important for those of us that tend to shop online more often now, as we don’t get to see the product in person first. Reading reviews can provide a fantastic alternative to being able to actually see and try the product for yourself.
It’s also great to read customer reviews because they’re unbiased and because they don’t come direct from the retailer or manufacturer they’re really honest insights into a product.
When looking through the customer reviews of Shark Steam Pocket Mop S1000UK, there were lots of really positive comments, so we’ve scored it Shark Steam Pocket Mop S1000UK 9.2 out of 10, based on a number of different variables from customer feedback through to the price, overall quality and the brand.
As you can imagine, without you, the buyers of these products, leaving reviews we wouldn’t have the great amount of information on the products like Shark Steam Pocket Mop S1000UK that we do now. So a plea from us, if you do go on to buy this product or even an alternative product, do leave a review. You can drop us a comment here so that customers just like you can read it. Or via the usual means of leaving a review on the product page of the retailer you bought the item from.
The brand of product you buy can vary in importance, from person to person. Some people will of course be much more particular about the brands they will use. Whilst others aren’t interested in the brand and are more interested in the overall quality or price of the product itself. Thankfully Shark is a brand that many customers have grown to love over the years and is very popular for items in the Steam cleaners category.
If the brand you buy is important to you, our best advice is to spend some time writing up your own list of ideal brands. That way when you come to the point where you’re comparing product options you can filter to only show the products from brands in your list.
Overall we’re really impressed with Shark Steam Pocket Mop S1000UK and that shows in our overall score of 9.3/10. The reason for such a high score is because the product just seems to tick the boxes in all areas from quality to price.
Considering it’s available for just £69.99 we felt that it’s a real deal to be grabbed from Argos if you can.
