I have had about 6 of this model Floormate, and will be upset if I have to eventually move to another model, as this one PERFECT! It has a 27 ft cord, and can take a real beating. I am a rescuer and petsitter with 5 dogs of our own, and I can't imagine ANYONE using their Floormate more than I do. In Florida, with all tile floors, and at least 24 dirty little feet running in and out all day, I could not maintain my reputation as a clean freak without my Floormate. It is SO easy to use, barely different than a vacuum cleaner, and there just isn't another machine out there that can clean every stroke with clean water and suck the dirty water away. The floor dries in about 4-5 minutes, and if you use the cleaning solution made for this type of machine (Hoover's own or Pledge Floor Care no-rinse formula, Walmart/Home Depot/grocery stores) you won't have streaks or water marks left behind. It blows me away that there's ANYONE still out there who swishes around a mop in a bucket of dirty water and swabs their floors with it. GROSS! I couldn't live the life I love without mine.
I just used my Hoover FH40160 Floormate today and I have to say it is a powerful cleaner. I was impressed to see how well it cleans the wood and tile floors on the first go around! It really gets all those logged little particles in the tile and between the wood, I love it! I wish it had a swivel head, other than that it is worth it.
I bought this hoover about two weeks ago and it been one of the best investments I ever made when it comes to cleaning my hard service floors, This hoover unit picks it all up even the fine dirt you can't see , and as for hair it amazing if you have any women living in your house you know what i mean they shed like no tomorrow, it picks it all up and when you done it takes less then 5 minutes to clean the hoover up. So if your looking for a great cleaning machine look know further this hoover will save your back and disinfect your floors at the same time.
We had a Hoover Floormate Deluxe which would not dispense the liquid cleaner and we needed to clean tile as we are selling our home. We love the fact that we never have residue or liquid remaining on the floor, it is picked up in the machine. Our floors, even laminate look beautiful as the scrubbing brushes work in the grout and clean between the wood on the floor.
