Best steam mop for tile floors? To clean and sanitize.
Opinions about best steam mop? Considering either Hahn or Eureka envirosteamer. both seem to have pros and cons. These two appear to steam at a higher temperature than others; ie: shark, etc. thanks for any input!
I also like getting on my hands and knees to get it clean, although I don't have the time to do that all the time heh. Renting the commercial steamer is an option for a very deep clean, but for a daily use I like to use a basic steam mop. I heard the Bissel and Hoover and great brands also. I did a little research of found several reviews for them. http://deviceraters.com/top-3-steam-mops/ My budget is below $100, I am still search for one and looking to buy one soon.
I have a Haan and really love it. It heats the water to a higher temperature than many "steam mops" so it sanitizes. It cleans the tile without putting dirty water on the grout (which is what causes the grout to look so nasty)
We purchased the Hoover Twin Tank Steam Mop and we love it--it is safe for all flooring surfaces-- laminate, wood, tile, vinyl even has carpet glide pad for refreshing carpets. The cleaning pads are removable and washable, so don't have to keep buying replacements. The dual tanks 1 holds just water the other cleaning solution--so you can choose just to steam (wipe down with water or use solution to mop and steam and has settings for light up to heavy cleaning) , swivel triangle head easy to maneuver and gets into corners good and fairly long cord . With 6 dogs and 2 teenagers (all inside and laminate throughout house except for bathrooms this has made my life so much easier and gets floors really clean and another plus dries fast... Normally runs around 170.00 but is on sale at Amazon right now for 84.50 and free shipping -- if you get this positive you will love it :) http://www.amazon.com/Hoover-TwinTank-Disinfe...
Any suggestions on the "latest and greatest" steam cleaner for tile floors? Borrowed a Orek from a friend but left my month old tile floors looking worse then they were before I started cleaning them (streaky). Also had to refill several times and the cord wasn't long enough. The plus was it heated up fast and I had several pads so I could change it often and wash them when done.
Debra, Did you get any response re Bissell Power Fresh Steam Mop? Did you buy one? I am leaning toward purchasing one for my tile floors.
I also had a HAAN, it didn't last only 2 yrs. I also hit the bottom of the cupboards so you had to hand scrub alone the baseboards.. The price was not cheap, I used it only 24- 36 times.. NOT IMPRESSED. this was about 5 yrs ago. I now have a BLACK and DECKER, it handles much better, has worked better, so far also got under the cabinet . I recently moved and haven't tried it on the kitchen hardwoods yet.. I also have a slate entry I will try it on..I will add I kept the old pads and use them on the B+D, I would also recommend buying extra pads when you purchase one.. they do streak if you do not change the pads often if doing a very dirty floor or a large area....
BEWARE,,,,,I'd also add..by accident I didn't get all the HAAN on the rubber pad when I stopped to move a kitchen chair,, the part not on the pad lifted the top of the vinal off. leaving it feeling like sandpaper and a spot to catch all the kitchen dirt.... luckily ours was an old kitchen..
I have a couple of things you need to remember. First, do not use on your hardwood floors. The second is when your drain is sluggish and draining very slow, give it a shot or two of steam Works great!
