answer 1
I would not suggest raising this STEAM model above your head. Water is HOT and could spill on you. Plus, I don't beleive the water would stay in the heating element to produce steam. Ceiling steaming is a unique request.....keep researching for the proper model. This is not the proper model.

answer 2
I wouldn't use it on a painted or popcorn ceiling; the steam is intense and would most likely remove paint/popcorn. I don't know of any product to clean a painted/popcorn ceiling; the only alternative is to paint.

Yes but do not expect DEEP cleaning. This model is not designed to be or marketed as a deep cleaner. It will however freshen up the carpets and I love how it leaves the carpet "looking" clean. It will help remove surface dirt if caught before it is ground down in deep. Extra effort is required compared to hard surfaces.

according to the Shark website it should have a carper glider with it but I did not see that listed on Walmart's description.

no. I have taken the mop head off and have had some success with just the steam portal exposed but this item is not designed to specifically clean grout. If grout cleaning is your main concern, I would suggest a diff item but if cleaning floor surfaces is your plan, I do recommend this item.

Absolutely not. It steams for 20 or 30 seconds and then takes 1 to 2 minutes to begin generating steam again. You could probably have a cup of tea while waiting for the steam to begin again.

The product has 3 settings of Intelligent Steam Control, which makes sure that there is enough steam for any type of floor. The unit will steam continuously, at the rate set by the user, until the huge water tank is depleted, or the task is finished.
