I grew up believing that the only way to really scrub a floor is to get down on your hands and knees and do it by hand. When we built our house we opted to go with hard flooring throughout and that means that we have a lot of floor to hand scrub, which is something I don’t have time for! The “Hoover FloorMate SteamScrub” is a great solution for someone like me!
The “Hoover FloorMate SteamScrub” is a convenient way to clean your floors without the hassle of a mop and bucket. It slides effortlessly across the vinyl flooring, cleaning as it goes.
It comes with everything you need to get started, including a small bottle of cleaner. It is easy to assemble and the instructions are easy to follow.
The “Hoover FloorMate SteamScrub” has Twin Tank Technology that separates clean water and solution tanks to give you the option to clean with or without the solution. I personally love this option. I prefer to use natural cleaners on my floors so using the “steam only” setting is perfect for us.
There are two heads for cleaning. One is for cleaning tile and grout and the other you easily slip a micro-fiber pad onto for cleaning vinyl and hardwood floors. We tried it on my the vinyl flooring and we were amazed with the results.
The “Hoover FloorMate SteamScrub” releases the right amount of steam to clean your floor. When I clean the floor using traditional methods like a mop and bucket or by hand, I am usually left with little puddles of water because I didn’t wring my mop (or cloth) out well enough. The floors were left only slightly damp after we finished.
The machine is lightweight when it’s empty, making it easy to move and store. Even when filled with water and cleaning solution it isn’t too heavy to maneuver. It has a fast heating time and you know it’s ready to use by the lights on the front of the unit. The triangular shape of the head means that I was able to get into the corners of the room as well as clean along the baseboards and cupboards with very little effort.
The floors didn’t look particularly dirty at first glance but after running the steamer over them we discovered they were dirtier than we thought. The right side of the image is after we did a pass of the cleaner over the floor.
The micro-fiber cloth picks up the dirt. When we finished we rinsed the cloth out in the sink and tossed it in the laundry and let it air dry.
The “Hoover FloorMate SteamScrub” is a great solution for anyone looking for an effortlessly clean floor.
