Comments about Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub 800 Hard Floor Cleaner:
I have two of these and I used them in my house cleaning bussiness for many years the tanks need to be bigger but they clean alot better than a mop or steam cleaner. bought one for each of my daughters houses. once a year you have to clean the grout lines by hand but that would be the case with any machine out there. or have them cleaned by a company. Great machine
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I have had my machine (which I bought used) for over a year now. I am very satisfied with how it cleans; I wasn't expecting miracles. I mopped with a steam mop OFTEN and a string mop as well. I thought my tile was very clean until I used the Floormate. Humbling, very humbling. The slower you move the more dirt you see in the tank. If you use a lot of solution you will have to refill often, a little too often but it's still worth it. It will not turn your grout to 'like new' but you can see a difference. Make sure you use the ratio on the bottle of cleaner, not the machine. Some are more concentrated and will leave a sticky residue. The big change I would like to see in the Floormate is being able to turn the suction off while the brushes are moving so you can scrub on difficult spots and not suck up all the solution. Buy one, you will love it!!

I love my floormate!!!
from Mesa, AZ
I have three dogs and two boys... My floors get filthy. I tried a swiffer wet jet and that lasted about six months before it broke. Not to mention that I was spending about $20 a month on supplies for it. My friend had a floormate and I borrowed her's and after that I was hooked. I have tried the shark steam mop but it just doesn't come anywhere near the floormate. It leaves so much behind that I couldn't see. My floors have never looked better and I couldn't be happier.
CLEANER than a mop!
This is a great machine to replace your mop! I am so sorry that they are not as avail in stores as they once were! I think many people do not realize how handy this lite weight machine is! You are not "pushing around" the same dirty water...much cleaner than a mop! I keep two because in cae one breaks I never want to be without one!!

Great. . so far!
from St Lucie West, Port St. Lucie, FL
I used this machine for the 1st time today and I am pleased so far. Easy to operate and I am sure with use, I will learn how much water to squeeze on the floor. My floors came out clean with no streaks (I have tiled floors). I had to empty and refill 3 times to clean my kitchen, 2 bathrooms and small hallway. I am pleased with the process and the results. Glad I bought it.
Love this machine

I first saw the machine used by my daughter. She has a condo in ATL with a tile balcony...She uses it stricly to clean the black city grime from her balcony...It does a beautiful job! After seeing her use it I purchased one and unlike other reviewers, I am lucky I guess because I have had no leaking problems... I am 65 and have 5 rooms of beautiful stone flooring and have been using the Model #H3045 Floormate SpinScrub WidePath since it came out (several years) I have had to replace nothing except purchase the solution. Today, I am ordering a new filter just to have an extra... My only complaint is that the solution is hard to find therefore I am ordering it for the first time online also. I use this machine to vacuum but I use it on the 'wash' cycle so that the brushes turn the whole time for a thorough job... After doing this, when I empty the canister I have to always take the filter out and vacuum with a regular vacuum cleaner hose...but it works wonderful. Then for cleaning my stone floors, I do not use the machine to dispense the cleaner solution, I mix it and actually pour or spread with a cloth all over the floor, about a quarter/half of room at a time, depending on size, then still using just the 'wash' cycle I wash till it has picked up all of the water...it does a super and quick job!!!! The machine is very easy to keep clean and I just make sure it is totally dry before using as a dry vacuum... I have recommended this to several friends and family....and I get many compliments on my floors...

I would like to use it more often but it leaks so, after using it I have to mop the floor again

Excellent for tile floors
from Livermore, CA
We used the FloorMate for 4 years for 300 sq ft of tile in the living room, kitchen and hallways. No kids but two dogs use this area. The Floormate is best at removing loose dirt and keeping the dirt from build up. When we used a wet mop areas of dirt would build up where the dogs layed around, or in high traffic areas. With the FloorMate there is no buildup whatsoever. However, the Floormate will not remove little bits of stuff that is stuck on the floor, for instance food bits dropped in the kitchen. I ususally use a fingernail to loosen the bit and then the FloorMate picks it up. Also, if your floor is already really dirty with dirt buildup the Floormate will not scrub it clean. You will have to scrub the floor by hand the first time. After that the FloorMate works great for keeping it clean. Over all the FloorMate is far superior to wet mopping of any type. It is easier to do and does a great job
