No more breaking my back to clean the 700 sq feet of flooring in my house! with a husband who works outside all day and a dog that does the same my floors have always been a challenge for me to keep clean! I have many health issues and mopping, steam cleaners and plain old hands and knees scrubbing our now just a memory.
The floor mate goes together fast, stores compactly and is super easy to clean out, and rev up again! I would have wanted a larger capacity of fresh soapy water, but then the machine would be too heavy to push, so I think the size will have to do. Not hard to take out the bins, clean and refill.
Hear are some tips I learned from my friend who owns one:
Be patient at first, you may see streaks or dull looking floors, Why? we both found out our floors were WAY dirty and redoing a few times removes all dirt and things begin to look up! Keeping up with cleaning is easy with the hoover and so getting to it more often is key.
move the machine slowly over surface, give the brushes and water time to scrub.
Do small sections at a time 9if you have a large area) to make sure you do a thorough job. The machine is about 11' wide at the base, so that is the area you will work on with each swipe, you'll have a clean floor, with much less effort, in no time.
You can leave the brushes spinning over areas where there was a missed spill (like a drop or two of tomato sauce no one noticed!) and it'll get clean.
Using the vacuum to suck up the dirty water is the best feature. No more "steamer pads" to clean, and you know the dirt is getting lifted off the floor.
I really like the ease of this floor cleaner and the results are better than all my floor scrubbing efforts.
I saved up for two months to buy this item, it arrived quickly to my door and I've enjoyed using it these last two weeks.
