Get a Clean Floor without the Dirty Work

I love the look of my tile kitchen floors, but at the same time, they are a pain to clean. Most floor cleaners do a bang-up job but don’t get into the indented grout. Which means that my floors don’t actually get a good clean, unless you were to get on your hands and knees and scrub. Yeah, like that’s gonna happen! 

Another problem is that floor cleaners spurt water and scrub the floor, but if you really think about it – that dirty water is left ON the floor. Again, unless you use a rag to wipe up what you cleaned, that dirt is just spread all over and left there. 

In both cases, it’s kinda pointless right? Sorry to point out the obvious, but I am here with some good news, so don’t worry. 

Floor and Hoover

I was recently sent the new Hoover Floormate Deluxe and it solves both of these problems and more. This floor cleaner gives you the luxury of a well-cleaned floor without having to do the dirty work. 

The new Hoover Floormate Deluxe is designed to deliver the best clean while gently and safely scrubbing sealed hardwood, vinyl, ceramic tile, laminate and marble in a snap. One of the biggest perks of this product is that it has a separate attachment to get that tile {and grout} fully scrubbed and another for hardwood or smooth surfaces.


The tile scrubber bristles are harder, tougher and are of different lengths, to really get into every crevice.

Yet, for smooth floors like hardwood and vinyl – use the Hard Wood Brush. It’s bristles are even and softer so it can clean, without being so harsh on porous floors.

Yet both have counter-rotating brushes to really clean, just like you’d wipe if you were to get down there and do it yourself {which we’ve already decided that we don’t want to, right?}.

This is great news since most households have more than one type of flooring!

The Hoover Floormate Deluxe has a dual tank system – one for water and cleaning solution that is included with the purchase and sold seperately and another tank to hold the dirty water from the floor. This works by a wash and dry dial.




I choose ‘wash’, do a section of floor, using the squeeze and release trigger for solution control. Then, just change the dial to ‘dry’ and go over that same section.

On dry mode, the same brushes that wash, go over the area and suck up the dirty water. Not only is this awesome because you aren’t leaving dirty water on a ‘clean floor’, but when you have kids or pets, cutting down that drying time is most welcome. Why do they always walk through just-washed floors?!

Floor and Tile, with hoover

The Hoover Floormate Deluxe {sold at Sears or right from the site} weighs less than 14lbs and is worth the re-arranging to fit it into your broom closet. You’re probably wasting space with the others anyway. Just’ sayin!

  2. I have a house of cat hair lol. It seems I just clean and there’s more floating around already. I love that it dries quick and is easy to maneuver . This would be awesome.

  3. I love the “Dry” mode feature…no more little footprints or paw prints, to see running across the floor, right after I have cleaned it (woohoo DRY) 🙂

  119. I would love this for our condo! In a small Toronto space, the Dry Mode would help make the space usable again so much faster. We don’t really have anywhere else to go to wait for the floors to dry, and the neat freak in me loves the attachment to get at the grout in the kitchen and bathroom tiles!

  120. I would love to try this one out, as I live in a steel plant city. I have to scrub the floors with SOS every so often and always doing quick wipe downs.

  121. I would like to win because I have two dogs who are very sloppy. My fave feature is that there is a dry mode, for sucking up excess water.

  131. Pinching her nipples, too much friction, squeezing her buttocks too hard,
    can take a lot off her arousal. One of the chemical messengers involved in this process is termed as cyclic GMP.
    It works by blocking the amount of fat that is absorbed by the body.

  132. Really like the dry mode feature. My new house has tile floors so this would come in handy!

  133. I like that it is light and dries the floor too!!! This sounds perfect for my kids to help out more!

  134. I like the counter rotating brushes – seems like a great idea for a better clean
