When I first purchased this in January it worked ok. I mean if the floor is clean, it works pretty well. However, as a busy mom of 4, we needed this to work as described. Sure works great if you clean your floor before you clean them. But if what you actually wanted was for it to suck up the dirt and water while washing the floor, you will be very disappointed! Additionally, just 6 months after purchase, with light use (as the thing just doesn't work) the hose cracked open right at the joint between the top and bottom. Where it is designed to bend. Obviously the thing is poorly designed, poorly manufactured, piece of junk. This was my 3rd hoover purchase, and my last. It just isn't the same company it used to be.

I haven't owned this that long, but so far I am very happy with it. It seems like it is well made and of sturdy construction. I have tried it all, from the different type of mops that you buy the pads for, to a steamer mop. I wanted something that scrubbed the floor and sucked up the dirty water. This is one of the few reasonably priced options that will do that. The first time I used it on my tile floors, the water it sucked up was disgusting, and my floor looked the cleanest it has in a long time. This machine is easy to use, and the water compartments come off and go back on easily. The cord is nice and long, and I only had to move it once to do my large kitchen, bathroom and laundry area; and I only had to empty and refill the water containers once for my large area. It is a nice, light weight for easy carrying and use. It comes with a small bottle of floor cleaner, and it is very concentrated and doesn't take much to do the job.

I had the hoover floormate 3000 and loved it. I broke it (my fault not the machines). So after reading all the reviews on tile cleaners I bought this (after all it is a Hoover floormate, right?). First of all, Wallmart advertised at $124 and when I bought from store it was $138. The on off button is tempermental. This machine has a button to "pick up any extra water" according to manual. That's great because you are going to need it. Without the "dry button" most water is left on floor. Even when I have it on "dry" water still squirts out the side of brushes. The scrub brushes are not efficent . The machine leaves streaks. I kept having to go over the floor over and over again and the floors were not anymore dirty than when I used my 3000 series. Upon opening the box the instructions say "do not return to store". When I bought this Wallmart said I could return with the receipt, so I am going to try and return. I should have known this item was worthless, there are many on craigslist for sale, cheap.

Hi Denise2525! You should not be having this much trouble with your FloorMate. When powering the cleaner on, make sure the power button is pushed down firmly and clicks. In regards to the cleaner not picking up as well, you must take slow deliberate strokes. Hope this helps! <br /><br />-Giselle <br />Hoover Customer Care

I have only used the Floormate twice and the first cleaning was a little disappointing. I bought the regular, not the deluxe version, and it did not come with the tile and grout brush. My floors are ceramic tile with deep grout lines. The tiles cleaned nicely, but the grout was unaffected. I realized that saving money on the less expensive model didn't give me the right brush for my floors. I ended up ordering the deluxe tile and grout brush (it fits the model I purchased) and I am happier with the Hoover Floormate now. I would like the cleaning solution tank to last a little longer. My kitchen is quite large and I had to refill the tank 6 times to get the whole floor clean. I mixed some solution in a spray bottle and used it by hand to supplement the tank. That worked pretty well. The dirty water tank needs to be emptied between refills, so that slows the cleaning job down. To sum things up, if I had bought the Hoover Deluxe Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner to begin with, I would have saved money, since it comes with 2 brushes.

Having a small farm and many family members does not make taking off your boots every time you come inside feasible. Hauling a mop and bucket only to dilute and push around the dirt was a major waste of time and a strenuous chore. The Hoover Floormate has provided a solution to our floor care problems. With only a pint of water to haul, I have been able to get my floors the cleanest I have ever seen. After a general sweeping and a quick dusting to remove pet hair, I am able to wash my floors in less time using less physical effort and obtaining better results. The floormate allows you to apply as much of the cleaning solution as you desire to a specific area, the spinning brushes are very effective and the suction power is impressive. The entire process reminds me of a carpet shampooer. I am very happy with results and would recommend the Floormate to anyone who is tried of hauling a bucket!

This works almost as good as spraying cleaner on your floor, crawling around with a towel and wiping up the solution, then drying it to remove streaks. This doesn't really clean in the first place, then leaves streaks shen it dries, so proceed manually as described above.

Love this. My steam mop went out and I decided to try this and cannot believe how good it does. So different from a steam mop, this actually cleans. It's as close as you are going to get to 'on your hands and knees cleaning'. I couldn't believe the dirty water that came off of my floors. I used very hot water and mixed it with the cleaning solution. I've used this on both laminate and a textured porcelain tile floor and it did an excellent job on both. You may have to pre-treat your gout, but you will be amazed with the results. It came with a bottle of cleaner and it smells really good too. The 2 year free parts and labor warranty is a good selling point too. I haven't used the drying option yet because it sucked the water up so well that I really didn't have to use it. I'm a happy camper here. I just wish I had bought one of these sooner. I will recommend this to anyone who wants to have a really really clean floor that smells good.

We recently purchased a home with all tile floors. The previous owners had 2 dogs and when we purchased the home it smelled like wet dog. This product worked well to clean and vacum away the dirt and smell. The only comment is I wish I had purchased one with a wider scrubber head.

I read the reviews and ordered online. After picking up the cleaner I put it together and followed the instructions. It seems to clean but would not suck the water into the second container...not one drop. Frustrated I put it aside and tried again the following day. I read all instructions again but instead of putting the water and cleaner into the 1st container, I threw water on the floor to see if it would suck it up. No it would not. I tried calling the Hoover Customer Service help number-no response. I took the Hoover Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner back to the store and received a full refund. I sent an email to customer service at Hoover and received a "thank you" for my comment. In other words, Hoover customer service was no help and their response, a joke. I would not recommend this product unless you want to be totally frustrated!!

Have to say I was presently surprised on how well the cleaner performed. Like most people I hate to mop and so does everyone else in the home. I was originally looking to buy a steam cleaner but after reading reviews and thinking about it I realized they really don't clean because the pad can only collect so much before you are just spreading around the dirt. This cleaner on the other hand really does clean because it not only scrubs the floor but also sucks up the dirty water and dries the floor at the same time when set to dry. I also was really surprised how well it worked not only on ceramic tile but hardwood floors too. It was actually pretty scary to see just how dirty my floors were. I mean the water in the dispelled tank looked like mud and my floors looked almost brand new. I was also really surprised how well it worked on dried up stains like ketchup, soda, etc. too. Some of the tougher stains did take a few Passovers and some time with the cleaner to pick up but considering how dried up they were I was still impressed because I thought for sure it wouldn't be able to clean the spot. I also really like the size, it's pretty lightweight and pretty easy to store.

This unit is designed uncomplicated, easy to assemble, and straightforward to use. For the first test run, we used Hoover tile and grout liquid cleaner in an attempt to remove more haze from our 6 month old tile in our new house. In about a third of the time compared to painstaking hands and knees bucket method, it scrubbed off dirt and some haze from the off-white tile, as evidenced by the dirty water in the pickup tank. As a bonus, it left a nice dull shine after it was 100% dry. So far, no cons to report. Other than those $1,000 commercial units you read about, no other company has anything like this on the market.

This works okay but it takes a while to get the floor clean, it doesn't put out much cleaner and the suction isn't to strong. This doesn't save much time but if you take your time going over each area a few times it will come clean.

I absolutely love this product. I actually had the older version and got rid of it after 4-5 years of constant use. I cannot wait to buy another one! I don't think using a mop actually cleans your floors and my house is way too big to wash my floors on my hands and knees old school style. I would recommend this product to anyone that has hard floors in their house, especially if you have kids and pets where you need to wash your floors often. It works great, and I love that it also dries the floors so you don't have to put caution tape up to keep the kids and pets out of a wet area that you've just washed. Super simple to use, just fill one tank with clean water and your floor cleaner and the other tank you just lift off the base and dump out and rinse when you're done. I'm not sure about the new version, my old one was kind of loud but I guess most vacuums are.

  • A. It comes with a cleaning solution but I use hot water and add a little PineSol. We have approximately 700 sq. of rough-texture ceramic tile and a lot of traffic.. This is my third machine and I typically need a new machine every year-18 mos. so maybe it does affect it but it&#39;s worth it to me to know I&#39;m also sanitizing.
