  • Definitely works better than Swiffer!
    Verified Purchase

    I have tiled slate floors as well as laminate wood flooring and the water in the tank after I cleaned both was so dirty I was shocked. The slate floor is uneven and that is a bit of a challenge for the Floormate only because of the peaks and valleys. It cleared it all with no problem but did not clean the low areas if there was a particularly high area near it. I have a dog so there is hair and mud for the Floormate to tackle, and it does so without issue. I did have to assemble, de-assemble and reassemble it as I did not do it tightly enough the first time and that caused intermittent usage but that was all me (be sure to push the handle in as tightly as you can). Also it does leave dirty water on the floor when you turn it off. Not a lot but enough that you will have to use a rag or a couple of paper towels to clean it up. If I had the time, or when I have the time, I will clean the floor twice in a row and see how dirty the water is on the second wash. That will be the real test. However, I will not complain as the water I dumped out really was dirtier than I thought it would be. So it is cleaning better than I knew I needed if that makes sense. Overall, I love it and would buy it again. As it does not totally meet my need for thoroughly cleaning the textured slate (not sure anything could) as well as leaving behind some dirty water once turned off, I gave it four stars.

  • Works Well on Ceramic Tile Floor
    Verified Purchase

    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.

  • Makes cleaning fun!
    Verified Purchase

    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!

  • Great Little Machine
    Verified Purchase

    This little machine cleans my 'faux' bamboo vinyl flooring so well, now I don't cringe every time there's a spill or wet or muddy footprints. With 2 rambunctious cats, and a 20 year old Jack Russell Terrier, cleaning has been a big part of my day. It used to take three or four times scrubbing and rinsing to get the dirt and grime up....after I vacuumed. No matter what, there were always cloudy smudges, even with vinegar rinses. Now, I vacuum or sweep the floors depending on if there's lots of grit, etc. on them, and the Hoover Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner takes it from there and scrubs and dries the floors beautifully. If fluffs of kittie fur balls roll in the path as they often do, I switch the Floormate to vacuum and poof, no fur balls. The floors look just great and streak free. My daughter noticed the instant she came through the doorway. I will keep a good supply of Hoover's cleaning solution on hand because I have a feeling that's part of the magic. It is so easy to fill and empty the chambers for the cleaning solution and the dirty water....and it is amazing how dirty the water gets because I clean so often. Buying the Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner (the one with the vacuum) was a really great purchase.

  • Big improvements on this model
    Verified Purchase

    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.

    I was reluctant to buy this, but I was looking for any easier way to clean my floors. I have COPD and some days breathing in and of itself is a chore. I have a large home that is made up of hardwood and tile. Needless to say my floors were neglected because some days sweeping and mopping we phyiscally out of the question. This Floormate make cleaning the floors almost effortless. Turn the dial to vac-walk slowly...turn the dial to wash...walk slowly....turn to dry...you get the idea....It's a God send.

  • Love this floor cleaner!
    Verified Purchase

    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!

    I love the Hoover Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner! When I came home to find my 2 year old 'cleaning' the kitchen floor with her sister's left over spinach....I knew I had to get a product that wouldn't mess around. I needed something with POWER! Hoover Floormate to the rescue...After using it the first weekend, I went to work and raved all about it to my co-workers. I think my next purchase will be a Hoover Vacuum Cleaner, then a Hoover Carpet Cleaner, then a Hoover....well you get my drift!

    This is hard to rate because I LOVE the way this machine cleans my floors; however, I am on my third machine in four years. This model eventually stopped sucking the water up. I also had a different model from Hoover, and it just stopped powering on completely. I recently purchased the cordless model, and this time I bought an extended warranty. I recommend anyone purchasing these do the same. All that said -- I won't be without a hard floor cleaner. It cleans floors like nothing I have ever used. Mops just push around dirty water; steam cleaners don't suck up the dirty water either. This leaves floors squeaky clean. I remember the first time I used it -- I was amazed at the difference it made in how it felt walking bare foot on the floor! I recommend these highly, but like I said, get some kind of extended protection if you can.

    This thing is AWESOME! I can't believe how much dirt it will pick up, even after I do a traditional mop before using it. I've also used it lots of times to pick up large spills. I use it on my tile floors (weekly) and my real hardwood floors (but not often on my hardwood). I know I've had it now over 2 years and never have had a problem with it. We have 3 dogs, and lots of hair goes thru it (even after I sweep). It's easy to empty and hasn't gotten clogged yet. I will purchase this exact brand again.
