Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JMAC Perfect for a house full of hardwood floors.
My wife wanted to get one of those floor cleaners with a rag on the bottom but I bought her this Floormate instead. She loves it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maniac Works great! I love this machine!
I am considering buying a new FloorMate model, but since I am still getting use out of a RECONDITIONED unit that I purchased about 3 -4 years ago. The newer one has some features I like and will probably get one soon. I just wanted to say that as long as the unit is cleaned regularly (it all comes apart nicely) it has continued to work. For the past 9 months, I have been mopping up after an incontinent cat and the floormate makes it a much easier task. My kitty passed away recently, but with three dogs and two other cats and a husband that walks in with mud on his boots all the time, the floormate is still my go-to gadget.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Timmm VERY clean floors
After 15 years with this porcelain tile it is finally really, really, clean! So clean that a swipe with a windex sprayer and paper towel reveals no dirt on the floor whatsoever! I am VERY pleased. I give it four stars because it claims to do grout and it just does not . I still need a stiff brush on a stick and a spray bottle with cleaner in it to do that job. Also, my tile has little divots and a slight uneven texture in it to simulate stone that collect dirt and this machine does not get that dirt out. I do wish the on/off button was better located on the handle. And, it leaves more water on the floor than I thought so I have to use a flat mop to quickly wipe it up. Thanks for the opportunity to give my opinion.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gramma Maven Works well; just one suggestion
It dispenses and scrubs when you press the lever and go forward, but whether or not you want it to, it picks up the solution from the floor when you bring it back. I like to soak the grout until I'm finished scrubbing, then pick up the dirty water. I wish it would allow me to control when it picks up dirty water.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pjbl Perfect for me
I have been using FloorMates for years. So when I needed a new one there was not question in my mind what I was going to buy! Easy to use and at a good price.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jamngrnma It Leaks!
So disappointed with this machine. I just received it 2 days ago & have used it twice. It cleans great, picks up the water, except for what it leaks! I know for sure the dirty water tank leaks, because when I take it off to dump the water into the toilet I have to hold my hands under it otherwise it drips all over my laminate floors. I also think the clean water tank leaks some as it's impossible to pick up all the water because of being a constant puddle. I've even put a bucket near where I'm cleaning so I can keep emptying the dirty water tank, but feel if I keep doing this the cheap plastic clips that hold the top of the tank down won't last long. I purchased this intending to also use it on my laminate floors, but because of the leaks won't even try it. Another complaint is the clean water trigger is hard on the fingers after using it a few times.Have looked up an authorized dealer & the closest one is almost 40 miles away! Unless they give me a solution to the leaking I will probably return it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TMQ58 The Answer!!!!
I have been trying to keep my floors clean for years. The are now cleaner than I thought possible. Great product!! I have tried steam mops, microfiber pads, and spray & mop cleaners. None of them have worked as advertised. Finally. this one does. Easy to use, well designed controls etc. The only draw back is that is somwhat heavy and bulky. I would love to see a "mini" version for tight places like a small bathroom.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kargirl Cleans great but makes a mess.
I had an older Floormate and had to replace it after 3 years. I got this one and used it once. It did a good job cleaning my floors, but I noticed immediately that the dirty water "leaked" and would leave a mess behind where I was cleaning and if I stopped cleaning for a bathroom break. At first, I didn't think much of it, but since it was the 1st time I even used the machine, I am going to return it. Can't decide if I should get another one? I love that this model has the tile/grout scrub brushes but do wish that the bristles were a bit longer to really get into the grout. I also like that the water tanks are similar in size, but I also noticed that the cleaning tank still empties MUCH faster than the dirty tank fills which means the suction isn't that strong. I was hoping after 3 years Hoover would have made some better upgrades. I guess I'll have to wait a little bit longer.
