Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SueBSouth Love this machine!
I just moved into a house with tile floors. Previous owner had 2 dogs and was not much into cleaning. The main selling point for me on the Floormate was the separate tanks so that I wasn't swishing dirt around with my string mop. Secondly is the very impressive drying feature - no more hollering at my husband to get off the (still) wet floor ! The only negatves (this they note in the manual ) is that it piddles out water when you stop. I have to store it on a tray. Secondly is the tiny, ill-fitting gasket on the dirty tank. I almost lost it down the disposal, and it does not seat right. Not sure if it has any affect on the suction power, but a definite design flaw. But, I am extremely happy with my purchase of this machine!

You can clean just as well as this machine with a mop

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mojo Great hard floor cleaner
Great cleaner. I can see my grout getting lighter every time I use this, because only clean water gets dispensed onto floor. Clean water down, then gets vacuumed right back up. Love that the vacuum gets all the grit up so I don't have to dust mop after the floor dries like I used to.

My home is all ceramic tile floors and I have owned this for about 8 months and use it almost every day. I don't like the on off switch because it is encased in a rubber cover and it's difficult to turn it off and on if you don't push it just the right way. I started to use it yesterday and it started and then died. I always bought Hoover carpet cleaners because they lasted so long but this floor ate is junk.

We have a substantial amount of ceramic tile and several dogs. I have been through several floor cleaners and this one is great. I use it daily and for the price, it really gets the job done. I would absolutely recommend it for tile floor cleaning.

The good - Extremely satisfying to see all that dirty water go into the reservoir, instead of being pushed around with the dirty mop.
It puts water on the floor, does a light scrub, and then sucks the water up. I
No pushing dirty water around and wringing out the mop.
It leaves the floor fairly dry.
For floors that are already pretty clean, it works pretty good.
You can flood the floor and suck the dirty water up. Multiple passes keep producing more dirty water in the reservoir, so it's definitely cleaning.
Even if you think your floors are clean, you can still get dirty water into the reservoir, so in that sense, it is quite satisfying seeing all the dirt that was there, now being poured down the drain.
It is perfect for my mom, who takes her shoes off in the entry, lives alone, wipes up any messes right away, picks up after herself, and has no pets.
What I don't like, and sorry the list is long.
It can't compete with my ability to sweep, vacuum and then mop; I am much more thorough.
Not that easy to move around. It's heavier and more awkward than an average vacuum.
The cord isn't long enough, and isn't retractable.
The water reservoirs, both dirty and clean, are too small, and need to be refilled and emptied mid cleaning.
It doesn't get into corners or edges.
If your floors are actually dirty from having a busy household, (dogs, kids, etc.), this isn't going to clean them.
It feels very cheaply made, the plastic feels like it could snap or crack at any time, and it has a funny smell.
I never used the included cleanser, as I didn't like the scent, and I prefer natural cleaners.
I tried a few different cleaners, vinegar, castile soap, etc., but it didn't make much difference over using plain water. I tried hot and cold water.
Great idea, looks good on paper, but doesn't work for me.
If they could make this product lighter and easier to maneuver, if it has some on board attachments to get into corners, and spot scrub dirty spots, and a retractable cord it would be so much better.
