I used an earlier model of this product for about six or seven years. When I saw that this model has brushes instead of the old squeegee, I decided to try it out. This model has much better "fit and finish" than the old model. The tanks come out and go back in very quickly and easily. The old one was always a struggle. The new one has settings for vacuum, wash, and dry. My only complaint is that the function switch is a little mushy. To be sure it's on the wash setting, I had to check to see if the brushes were spinning. If you can see the green outline of the brushes, you need to adjust the setting until the brushes are clearly spinning. My machine came with a packet of scrubber wipes for the grout, and I tried using them without a lot of success. They are hard to use, and I would recommend rubber gloves to protect your fingernails. If you've never used one of these machines, I would say to give one a try. It makes the cleanup process much more pleasant and efficient. We have cats, and I used the vacuum on the kitchen floor before I did the "wash cycle," and I should have emptied out the bottom reservoir before I did that, because when I emptied it, there was a lot of hair for it to work through. It's also important to clean the hair out of the scrubber brushes each time you use it. This was an easy process, and it didn't require any disassembly aftter one use. I imagine, though, from past experience, that the day will come when I have to take apart the bottom assembly for cleaning. I have always bought commercial floor cleaners by the gallon (from Home Depot or Lowe's) for my machine, and I will likely continue to do so. You just have to read the label to make sure that the ingredients are about the same. All in all, this is a big improvement over past models.

This Hoover is brilliant! I can't believe how much yukky stuff it picked up off the floor. We recently purchased a house that pretty much has all-tile floors--white tile, to boot!--and I knew a mop wasn't gonna cut it. I tried this out for the first time and am very happy with the results! The dry vacuum has great suction for a hybrid machine such as this and I like how you can see the path of cleaning solution that it leaves behind in wash mode. Instructions were easy enough and all the compartments are self-explanatory and user friendly. There are just a few things I wish were different. First, the fresh water tank is kinda small and therefore needs to be refilled frequently. The cord could be longer. And it is kinda heavy to push... not bad, but you do have to put some muscle behind it. Takes a little experimenting to get used to doing the wash, but I found that pushing the unit in short strokes works much better than the longer ones you might use while vacuuming. Overall very satisfied with this purchase. Looking forward to fresh, clean floors in my house!

With tile floors in my kitchen, cleaning the hard floors has been a task in which I need to be on hands and knees to get at the gout lines. Using the Floormate, it does clean quite well and I was suprised on just how dirty the floor actually was. I've been using Pinesol, Simple Green and the suppy of Hoover floor cleaner that came with the unit. All seen to work satisfactorily.

I remember my mother using this type of machine to clean/shine floors. I had trouble getting my granite kitchen floor clean and shiny. I tried many different cleaners and machines but it would not shine. I remembered my mother using a polisher and purchased this one. It shines my floors beautifully. Really love it.

The Hoover Floormate Cleaner is easy to use. I liked that the two water compartments are on either side and not in front as a older model that I had. Each compartment is easy to remove and put back. Dripping continues to be an issue when the cleaner is standing still. I carry a cloth to take care of this problem. Even with this minor inconvience I think the product is worth it.

This is the second Hoover Floormate hard floor cleaner that I have purchased. The first one was a refurbished one. I love it and my housekeeper does also. My housekeeper was off for 6 months. I hate to clean the tile floors. So, I purchased a refurbished "floormate" while she was out. This floor cleaner vacuums, washes and take up the water. You get all that with one round of cleaning the floor! It works great and my tile floors look and are clean when you are finished. This cleaner was recommended by a "How to lay tile floors" book. I do not think that I can ever go back to the old "mop" again!

Bought the Hoover Floormate because friends with similar white tile flooring said it helped keep the grout white, whereas steamers just re-deposit grime that the steam picks up. The Floormate is very easy to use, and all the parts fit together intuitively. The reservoir for the cleaning solution is large enough to thoroughly clean my hall and kitchen and bathroom. It stores in my closet, just like an upright vacuum cleaner.

Seriously. My floors have never been cleaner. I have all wood floors on the first level of my home - and a kitten who sheds a lot. I buy the ******** dry and wet cloths to use with it. Of course it gets stuck on wires - it's a robot. If you were swiffering yourself - YOU'D GET STUCK ON WIRES! Anything that drags on the floor will if there are, in fact, wires resting on the floor. Luckily, there's an easy solution - take care of your wires! Don't blame it on the robot. I did just that (I have three lamps on a sofa table, so I taped the wires to the back of the cabinet. Now the Braava goes right under the couch. Let's face it - you probably almost never clean under your couch, because that would involve getting down to some crazy angle or moving the couch, neither of which is fun. Who wants to waste time cleaning floors anyway? That's why Braava is amazing. Charges quickly. Battery lasts forever. We do two dry mop cycles and then two wet mop cycles and it typically is almost dead by the end. Just pop on a cloth, set it down, place the cube somewhere pointing into the room and press the button. Braava takes off working hard while you go make yourself a martini. When she's done, she'll play a little tune and head back to where she started. Can't recommend enough.
