I’m using it on a grouted tile floor that probably hasn’t been thoroughly cleaned in 20 years. Every time I go over the floor, it accumulates a little more stuff. You know some cleaners, if you just wet them, and put on their holder, they look dirty? That was my concern, that the Hoover detergent was all I might see. However, I was wrong, the water isn’t very grey, but there are particles, from the floor. I don’t know how clean I’ll be able to get the floor, but little by little, it’s getting cleaner.
About the Floor Mate itself, where the handle fits is really, really tight. The two halves of the electrical connectors are only about ½” square. And you have to push the handle until it’s flush with the body. First time I was about a 1/2” out, it worked 2x’s then quit.
When I’m washing the floor, I turn the dial to Wash, then remove the front squeegee assembly. Then I run it back and forth for a while, just scrubbing. Put the squeegee back on, turn the dial to Dry. And empty the dirt.
Ordered Hoover’s Grout & Tile Cleaner. Hope it’ll speed up things. Wish Walmart carried it.
