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.

answer 4
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.

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.

No but it's best to use distilled water as after a while calcium from tap water can build up and I'm speaking of previous experience. If you use distilled wate . It's better for the mop and you are helping to prolong the life of your mop
