Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John FLOORMATE DELUXE HARD FLOOR CLEANER
At least once a year I get down on my hands and knees to strip the floor before waxing. At 65 it gets harder every year. With this machine I am able to scrub the floor with out hurting my knees or back. It does a fine job. You must take your time and let the machine do its job. Floor drys in less that an hour. Before it took maybe 2 or three hours. It is easy to fill and empty. The solution requirement is minimal. Then again this floor is only 8X10 with cabinets. It's nice that it come with 2 sets of brushes. When I get the hard wood for the rest of the house this will come in handy.

I have not had the machine very long so cannot comment on it's durability, but it does an excellent job cleaning my tile floors. I would not use it on my engineered hardwood as I feel the "boost" needs to be used often and that would get the wood floor too wet nor would I use it on marble or delicate surfaces or on laminate. I think the brush area should be wider as that might make it quicker to use. The tanks are easy to fill and empty, but they could be a bit larger. Takes longer than I think it should to do the floor - a mop is much quicker, but the machine is easier on my back. I plan to use it occasionally for a "deep" clean and use a mop on a regular basis. Time consuming, but the floor does look and feel clean and bright after use. The tile looks nice and bright after use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cleanfanatic Best way to clean the floor!
I am really please with the Floormate deluxe hard floor cleaner. It was easy to assemble - just needed to put the handle on with a few included screws. The cleaner scrubs the floor and then suctions off the water so that the floor is clean and dry. There are two tanks - one for the clean & one for the dirty water. No more scrubbing the floor on my hands & knees!!

I bought this at Home Depot based upon both the 5 Star and 1 Star reviews. I have to say that while it's possible that some of the 1 Star reviewers might have gotten a defective product, most of them probably started using the Hoover Floormate deluxe without reading the instructions or understanding how to properly clean a floor.
I work in facilities management. I have used floor cleaning products from $10 mops to $40,000 industrial floor scrubbing machines. For the money, this product does exactly what it's supposed to do. The cord is the perfect length, the two different brushes work very well depending on what type of floor a person is cleaning. The vacuum feature really gets all the debris, and clean up after the job is done is a breeze.
We have multiple pets and nothing we used ever got all the hair. The first time I used the Floormate, I purposefully did not vacuum first, I just ran the machine. And the floor was spotless. No streaks, no puddles, no cat or dog hair. I've since recommended this product to others, they've tried it, and they agree that this thing works.
Two thumbs way up.

This works great on my ceramic floor tiles. I would highly recommend it. Leaves a perfect shine when used with the recommended floor cleaner. I haven't tried it on my laminated floors but when I do will post an update.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ninakrystina Must buy for people with pets!
I am so happy that I purchased this product. I have 3 big dog's and they tend to sometimes use the bathroom in the house or make messes. I was really tired of mopping after them everyday. I have hardwood floors so mopping my floor everyday was leaving water stains and also leaving the floor filmy looking. But after using this everyday my floors are clean as if I have no pets and its amazing to see all the dirty water you have after using. No more placing the dirty water back on the floor. I do use a mop once in a while because I love the smell of pine-sol but I use the hoover after. I highly recommend this machine of you have pets or even if your just lazy and don't want to mop everyday.
