No matter how tidy you keep your home or how well it is decorated, having dirty floors instantly degrades its appearance. But we have to admit that cleaning floors are one of the most tiring and time-consuming tasks, especially when done by hand. Thanks to companies that now manufacture products designed to make things easier and cleaning time shorter. Hoover, a leading manufacturer in the cleaning industry, has provided its customers with some excellent products for years and their Floormate deluxe hard floor cleaner has earned a lot of praises from its users. Today we are going to have a complete Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner FH40160PC Reviews and present you with some useful details and information on it. This review will help you to decide if it is the ultimate cleaner for your home.
We must inform you that Hoover FloorMate Deluxe is a water-based cleaner and does not sweep floors. So you may need to first sweep your floors prior to the use of this appliance. If you wish to really sanitize your floors then cleaning them with a broom or just using a normal vacuum cleaner will not do.
You can get rid of the dust but you won’t be able to deep clean the floors until you use a water-based cleaner. Our product today Hoover floormate deluxe fh40160 is designed to wash floors in the best way possible.
We have also reviewed another vacuum from Hoover which is FloorMate SpinScrub Hard Floor Cleaner. Have a look, it might be worth reading!
Features of Our Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner FH40160PC Reviews
Weighing under 14 pounds (when empty), this lightweight cleaner can be moved around the house and carried up and down the stairs with ease. The slim frame and sleek design also make hoover floor mate a good looking appliance that requires very minimal storage space so you can store it away safely when not in use.
How it works
The Floormate deluxe is designed for use on hard floors such as sealed hardwood, tiles, laminated, composite cement, marble, and linoleum and so on. It is equipped with SpinScrub brushes which as you can tell from the name, scrub your floors while being activated in a spinning motion. This technology agitates dirt and scrubs them off floors, making it easy to work on tough stains and dried waste. The brushes are located on a bar at the head of the machine and are completely detachable, making it easy for you to remove and clean them after use.
There are two cleaning modes: Wash mode and Dry mode. You can start your cleaning with the wash mode where the cleaning solution is released on to the surfaces and the brushes work on your floor while suctioning excess water. This method gently cleanses all dirt and removes stains from floors. This must be followed by using the dry mode where the device gives your floors a finishing touch. The brushes are stopped and all moisture is sucked up to reveal squeaky dry floors.
The dry mode is one of the best features on this product because unlike other water-based floor cleaners that only wash floors, the Floormate provides a drying action which eliminates any water streaks and gives the floors an extra shine. These features make this Floormate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner standout from other laminate floor vacuums.
Another trait that impressed us is the inclusion of two water tanks. One tank is used to hold clean water while the other contains dirty water. This allows you to use only clean water on your floors as the dirty water is stored separately in a different tank.
This hardwood floor cleaning machine comes with a bottle of cleaning detergent so you can get to work immediately and we recommend using the same kind of detergent (which can be purchased separately) every time for the best results. Solvent-based cleaning concentrates or wax may damage the inner parts of the appliance.
The tanks, brushes, and nozzle are all detachable and can be removed for hassle-free cleaning. It is important to keep all the hoover floormate deluxe parts in good condition so that the appliance lasts long and performs well. Assembling comes fairly easy with no complicated steps to follow so you can make use of your product as soon as it arrives at your doorstep.
