Bought a few years ago and it is the best. We don't wear our shoes in our house and I clean every day and use the scrubber once a week. I recommend to all of my friends. Told a friend about it this weekend she just got new floors. Did a test to prove to her how great this machine works. Did a test for her today. Swept floor with broom used a microfiber mop to wash the floor then ran the scrubber and wow it was disgusting I have posted pictures of what it picked up after I had already cleaned it with a microfiber mop. If you current mop or steam all you are doing is pushing the dirt around. You need to scrub and extract the dirt to have a clean floor this test proves it!! Also the machine I bought was refurbished and still works great!
Ease of use and great job cleaning
This is my second Floormate, having used the first until extinction. The first one I would have to change the scrubber between hard wood floors and tile, this one that is not necessary. The new one vacuums, something the first version did not do. I love that my floors are clean, something a mop and bucket simply cannot do ( paper towel test after the latter). I've to,d all my family and friends about this system and they too got one. It's a must have for lightening up your cleaning load.
Hi Loli63, we're so happy you're enjoying your FloorMate SpinScrub 3-in-1 Hard Floor Cleaner. Thanks, Cierra

I raise puppies in my home. Occassionally all I do is clean from room to room. This has made clean up very easy and reliable. I actually feel that the floor is clean, and the house smells much better after use. I do occassionally clean the filter in bleach water to help prevent black mold build up, or other bad things that don't need to be in the air. Great product, just wish it could get closer to the wall molding, and had a hand held device for close up vaccuming. That would allow me to do away with my other vaccum.
Excellent Cleaning Machine
I bought the Hoover FloorMate after much review, comparison and debate. This one seemed to do what I wanted. First try proved it was a good decision. Floors are clean beyond what I had hoped for. I do use the vacuum setting, then they wash, but have not needed to use the dry setting because it dries so fast, but that might not be the case this winter, so I cannot say for sure if it would come in handy then. * The return water was pure black! I was shocked, thrilled and amazed that it pull up so much filth! We rent, and the people before us were dairy farmers trekking mud inside all the time. Sure, it was surface-cleaned by a crew before we moved in, but it needed a deep cleaning! Thanks to Hoover for the FloorMate, I didn't have to wash our entire house on my hands and knees! The whole house is either linoleum or wood floors, so I am grateful to have a machine to help with the workload. Thank you Hoover! Job well done!
My Second FloorMate
I love the cleaning power I have in my home now. All the floors are wood or tile. Impossible for me to keep up with which meant they were not washed as often as I would have liked. This new FM is awesome. Thank you so much for this great back breaking, knee wrecking life saver. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
Works As Advertised
My steam mop wasn't doing the job so I started shopping! Hoover has always been high on my list for carpet cleaning so it made sense for tile and wood floors as well. Delivered on the time to my front door and the floors have never been cleaner. Easy to use, job well done and clean up minimal.
A Picture is Worth 1,000 Words
When your "clean" floors produce this, what is there left to say? I would give it 5 stars, but I don't want to jinx myself and have the power button go out like other users have said. Ironically, I just bought a new one because after my older model sat in the the garage for a while (more than a year), I went to turn it on, and the the power button had fallen off. One more thing - don't worry about using expensive floor cleaner; 1/4 cup of white vinegar in the tank, topped off with hot water does the trick!
Picks up the dirty water!
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.
Have only used once but it cleans great!
Purchased the previous model year on clearance for only $99. The older model has a wider cleaning path which I like, it is slightly heavier but that gives it some heft on the spin brushes. It did an awesome job on my kitchen rough porcelain tile floor that used to take me over an hour to do by mop, and the workout was strenuous. This makes cleaning almost fun and cuts the cleaning time to just over 20 minutes. Have only used it once, but love it so far.
Great for scrubbing floors and having then dry
I bought this to scrub our new home that has tile everywhere and we have 3 pets and a lot of traffic. I love how it is easy to fill with cleaning fluid, empty the dirty water which is kept separate :) I also like that you can dial to vacuum, wash or dry and I'll tell you that my floors were practically dry.....you do have to take your time for dirtier areas but it sure beat having to be on my hands and feet and any Swifter product I've every owned. I'm 49 and don't feel like scrubbing anymore so I splurged and purchased this and couldn't be happier.
great cleaner and light weight
I had been looking at this cleaner for a while and finally decided to get one- it does a good job getting floors clean-I was surprised how dirty the water was when I finished cleaned my floors considering I had just mopped them a few days earlier- works good and light weight- would recommend
excellent results on my ceramic tile floor
I have a large area of 18x18 ceramic tile from entry, hallway, dining room and kitchen and breakfast nook. I was tired of sweeping, mopping, scrubbing on hands and knees and floor still not feeling really clean. I purchased the Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub and absolutely love it. Does a fantastic job. Best $$ ever spent on floor scrubber and I did get the additional warranty as I will use this product a lot.
My floors are squeaky clean!
I purchased this floor cleaner because it has a 6 amp motor and I love it! It gets my floors squeaky clean and I don't have to get on my hands & knees. The best part is it picks up the dirty water so the entire time you are only putting clean water on the floor. Then to top it off, the 'dry' setting squeegies the floor from almost dry to completely dry depending on the floor type. The bonus 64 oz bottle of cleaner make this purchase super economical. Thank you Walmart for this super deal and superb machine!
Easy to clean previous models not so much.
This is the better model as it is easier to clean dirty water collection tank and easier to replace the sprayer vacuume piece. The brushes however need to be longer to clean the deep grout. I purchase a new one every 18 months because that is as long as they last! I must have had 7 or 8 over the years.
Approved by mother-in-law!
I am always skeptical when buying a new cleaning product. I usually find that I am disappointed and rarely use the product after the first few times. I hate cleaning, and have hardwood throughout my house with linoleum in my kitchen (for now). When I cleaned the floors before, it was a 4 hour process (at least) for just the kitchen and living room areas. I would sweep, vacuum, mop, steam mop, and then vacuum again. The first time I used this on the hardwood, I took it very slow making sure to scrub every inch carefully. I was instantly amazed about how well it cleaned everything and how dirty my floors were after all that work a few days before. The next day, I repeated the process, but used it less meticulously. It did the same - picked up more dirty than I thought would be there. The floors look awesome now - no more dingy or dull look. And for all the spoiled pet owners who have those slight mishaps of being gone too long, this works amazing to get out the pet stains. I work 12 hour days, have a small child, husband, 2 dogs and 2 cats so my cleaning time is limited to say the least. This product makes the floor part of it go so much quicker and better for this non-housewife type of person. Highly recommend it. I even got approval from my nit-picky mother-in-law!
Why did I just find out about the Hoover Floor Mate? So easy to operate and my floors have never been cleaner! I no longer dread cleaning them. I have tried every type of mop sold including steam mops, I had a maid service that claimed to clean the old fashioned way on their knees but when I spilled a little water on the floor and wiped it up with a napkin I saw how dirty my floors still were! This Hoover cleans and you see the results in the water tank! Highly recommend it!
Easy to use
The only issue I have is that it doesn't do a good job on corners and edges so I needed to do those parts by hand. I used it on tile - haven't tried it yet on our hardwood flooring. But makes life a whole lot easier since it washes, rinses and dries! Walmart had the best price online - shipping was free which was a bonus.
