We moved into our house almost 2 years ago which is a 2-story home, the entire downstairs is all tile or the vinyl or linoleum hardwood like floors.. In my tiny condo we lived in before I used the Swiffer mop which I bought the wet refill pads - but there was no way I was going to keep buying 2-3 times as many pads needed since I had way more flooring to mop - so I bought this mop since I got a good deal for it at the time. I LOVED this mop initially (still do, but..) - it has a larger mopping pad so it mops more coverage at once which is a big help - it saves a little more time & effort because of that. And thankfully you can purchase the replacement pads which in almost 2 years I've replaced the pad twice, which is much more cost effective (along with having to buy the floor cleaning solution) then buying swiffers mop pad refills. The mop still works really well for me - but after squeezing the spray trigger once, I have to give it time to build pressure back up to eat and to spray it again (the main reason for lowering my rating). But I just use an emptied small squirt bottle to squirt cleaning solution on my floor before mopping an area (I kept a small dishwasher rinse aid bottle after I had finished using all the rinse aid in my dishwasher, I washed that bottle out really well and just pour my floor cleaning solution in it to squirt on my floor here & there before mopping the areas I squirt- actually prefer mopping that way).. Another reason I lowered my rating is because I wish the Velcro wasn't only in 3 different sections or spots on the bottom of the mop & mop pad - I think the Velcro should actually run all the way across as long strips, because after using the pad a few times, it gets to where the Velcro doesn't stay attached as well - I have a different brand mop somewhat similar to this mop, and it has the Velcro strips that run all the way across and it works SO much better, it also has little pockets on 1 end of the mop pad that slip onto the bottom of the mop blade so that helps the pad to stay on even better - I wish this mop was that way - the mop pad not staying on that well is definitely another reason I lowered my rating. If I could give half star ratings I'd rate this mop 3.5 stars - but I removed a half star for each reason provided giving it a VERY fair 4 star rating. I do love using the mop, and it has lasted me almost 2 years - but I do think it has things that could be improved.
