I purchased this floor cleaner over a year ago, and so I can give a definite five star rating on this product due to the number of times I've used it. Our home has a large area of ceramic tile in the kitchen and extending into a well used sunporch. I was looking for something that would be easier than a bucket and a wet mop. I purchase the Hoover liquid floor soap at Home Depot. I will confess that because of the large area, if I am cleaning the entire tile surface, I have to fill the soap container on the cleaner on average three times. You add a capful of cleaning solution to the machines container of hot water. This number of times would not be necessary on a normal size kitchen floor. The cleaner has rotating brushes that do the cleaning. You can quickly see the dirt coming off the floor as the cleaner vacuums the wet area as it cleans. The cleaner also has a drying selection on the machine once you are finished. There is a short learning curve to using the machine so that you are not wasting your soap reservoir. You apply the solution using the handle button then release and let the brushes continue to rotate so the floor is scrubbed. As I said, I am still using the machine and intend to keep using it as long as our dogs keep tracking in dirt. This was a spur of the moment purchase of a floor cleaner one day when I was fed up with looking at dirty tile. I am so happy that I made the purchase.
I purchased this item a couple of weeks ago, wanted to use it several times before giving my review. Based on others having both positive and negative feedback with the actual cleaning on this item. I can say it is superb with cleaning both tile and wood floors. I haven't actually tried the grout cleaning solution yet but have ordered and waiting for arrival. But using the cleaner solution it came with has exceeded my expectations. Some were complaining about it leaving to much liquid on wood floors, but if you clean a little differently than tile floors it works great, I've cleaned my wood floors with a bump method meaning not using a full trigger pull on wood floors and this puts just enough solution down not to saturate the wood. The only negative thing I could say about this item thus far is the solution/water tank isn't ideal, it's a little small causing a few trips to refill for larger floors. The dirty water tank is an adequate size. I've only used mine a few times so the bristle wear is still not known and the longetivity of the machine is still unknown. With all this said I highly recommend anyone this machine to anyone looking for a great hard surface cleaner !
