Squeaky Clean!!

HORRIBLE HORRIBLE- 3 months old already issues

By AndreaD4

Comments about Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner:

So I had the original floormate that was the best ever. I figured after that died, I'd get the new model, new features etc....WOW, what a horrible mistake that was.. First of all, the new design is thoughtless. Not only is the placement of the power on button in an awkward spot, but you have to hold the power cable in your hand or you will continue to run over it with your floormate if you backtrack because it is practically laying on the floor because of where it connects into the unit.....FURTHERMORE, even worse, is that the scrubbing pads only ever so slightly GRAZE the floor, they don't scrub by any means, and so little detergent comes out that literally you can spend 10 minutes on one section and still not be clean. NOTHING NOTHING like the old unit that scrubbed the floor quickly with the perfect amount of fluid.........And to add to all of this, as if you couldn't get worse.............BINGO....it can...three months in...this unit SPEWSSSSSSSSSSSSS water out when you turn it off. By the time you go to move your plug into a new socket (oh, yes, because now the cord is INSANELY short so you have half the range of the old unit) it has dumped out more than HALF of the fluid/detergent in the resevoir all over the floor....................This unit is trash and Hoover should fire the engineers of this supposedly upgraded unit. I guess to cut corners and make more money they made a cheaper, ill thought out unit that you are going to have to replace in a few months.............I wish I could go back to my old one because that was FAR SUPERIOR in every way imaginable than this joke of a machine.........The competition is looking really good.......................


good news/bad news on the floormate

By Snowtracks

Comments about Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner:

I just used my recently purchased Floormate for the first time, on a tile and grout kitchen floor. The good news is that the floor looks better than it has looked in a long time. The bad news is that the Floormate does not clean tile and grout as well as I had hoped. For the past few months, I have been using a friend's Spinscrub--a previous generation Hoover floor gleaning machine. I naturally thought that a next generation machine, like the Floormate, designed specifically for hard floors, would do a much better job on tile and grout, than the Spinscrub. The Floormate does do a better job--but only marginally. Also, sadly, the Floormate does not have a rinse capability, a feature that is available with the Spinscrub. Also annoying, the Floormate dries whether it is in Wash or Dry mode. So you can not give a good scrubbing while the floor is wet with cleaning solution because the machine is always, at least partially, in Dry Mode. Hoover advertises that the Floormate's brushes spin in a counter-rotating fashion. I suppose that counter-rotating brushes will clean better than the same brushes, if they were all rotating in the same direction. Though, even better cleaning, especially in the grout lines, would be achieved if the brushes were not rotating, but reciprocating. Perhaps the next generation Hoover Floormate will have a rinse capability, feature reciprocating brushes, and not be in continuous dry mode. This is a good machine, which gets the job done. However, with a few changes, the Floormate would be a great machine.


Sorry I Bought It

Comments about Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner:

I bought my third FloorMate three months ago, after the second one, which only lasted 6 mos, blew up the motor. Bearings shot. I was really happy with the product until the last two. The current one I have, not only is the motor bearing shot, but it leaks the dirty water all over the floor, the brush heads fall out every time I pick up the machine to move it, doesn't suck up the water very well because the front plastic facing will not adhere to the machine correctly (I have tried many times to correct this), won't clean my tile grout at all, and the On/Off button doesn't consistently work. I thought, the first time I bought the machine that it was a great product, then with the second one, was disappointed when it only lasted 6 mos. It cleans the tile well, but not the grout. Now the third one is not working at all, and I really feel like sending it back to Hoover, with the dirty water in the tank just to make a point. Not happy at all with the product. Waste of money.

Comments about Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner:

Love that the unit is not as heavy as it's predecessor spinscrub and it does fit under furniture better, but I feel that it does not clean as well and it has less suction. It doesn't clean dried up messes and I find myself putting my foot on the unit to make the brushes clean better. Since day one the brush assembly keeps popping off even after I have it locked. I also find it difficult to attach the nozzle and I find that the cord is shorter. Like the filter but can't seem to remove it to clean it. Overall, it is OK and is still better than a bissel model that I have used. I recommend this machine to someone who is pretty clean or cleans frequently.


I bought this about 6 ...

Comments about Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner:

I bought this about 6 months ago, and it worked great. Now it dosent seem as thought its letting out enough water to clean, it looks like the water in the tank isnt really going down much. When I first got it it would use about a half of a tank of the solution now it barely budges. The suction is great, if I hand wash the floor, it picks up the extra water


Good cleaning

By cessnagirl

Comments about Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner:

I bought this cleaner so that maybe it would be a little easier to clean all of my floors and I must admit it has done a good job. However it did take a little getting used to, but once you realize exactly how to use it then it's a lot better. It really does clean the floors and is easy to use after you know the best way to do it. It is worth the money.


Impressed ! Was skeptical but LOVE this cleaner!

great daily use wet dry vac

By selarch

Comments about Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner:

we are house training 3 animals, accidents happen and this machine does a great job. We use it multiple times a day and it works great. We do need to buy a new squeegee but that is to be expected. We empty the recovery tank and rinse it every time we use it. It is very quick and easy to empty. great product.

Comments about Hoover FloorMate Deluxe Hard Floor Cleaner:

I have the original Floormate, which by the way still works, but decided to treat myself to the latest and greatest because we have so much tile in our house. I am so glad I did! It is lighter and easier to push which makes my job so much easier! I also don't have to empty and refill the tanks as often because they are so much bigger. Don't hesitate purchasing this one because it cleans and you will be amazed at how much dirt it picks up....just love it!
