How to get sparkling clean floors!  A Hoover Floormate Deluxe giveaway!

As a blogger I sometimes get to review some really great products (and some not so great ones), but when I do try something and I love it, I have to share it.  This is one of those times.  I’m seriously in love with this Hoover Floormate Deluxe floor cleaner.  And I’m a cleaner…I like my house clean so I don’t mess around!  So when I say I love this cleaner, I mean it.  😉

Hoover Floormate Deluxe Review

Like IN LOVE.  I have never ever in the history of all my cleaning have I ever had cleaner floors.  For real.  My floors are literally squeaky clean…my feet squeak when I walk on them.  And my floors are streak-free and SO shiny.  Best ever.  So it wouldn’t be fair not to share the love right?  Here are my thoughts on this great cleaner!

Hoover Floormate Deluxe Review

First, just take a look at the dirty water tank.

When I first tried this floor cleaner I wasn’t sure it was even working properly because the floors were so dry after a few passes.  I couldn’t figure out if the water was actually coming out.  But after a few passes with the cleaner I looked at the dirty water tank and was shocked!  Look how dirty the water is!  And all this time I thought my floors were clean – I’m a clean person and wash my floors regularly, but obviously my previous cleaner wasn’t cutting it.

I was so excited I texted a picture of the water to my husband…true story.  hahaha I live a glamorous life! Anyway after seeing that water tank I swear I will never go back to another cleaning tool for my floors.

Hoover Floormate Deluxe Review

Now look how clean and shiny my floors are.  I’m amazed!

Here are some thoughts and tips for this cleaner:

  • This model comes with a hardwood floor scrubbing brush and a floor tile scrubbing brush.  I’ve used both and am ecstatic with the results.
  • This cleaner has some major suction power – it sucks up the water as fast as it puts it out.  My floors were almost instantly dry.  But if you have tough dirty spots on your floors, it has the option to increase the water output for extra cleaning.
  • This machine uses a cleaner that comes with it (you can buy refills at the store), but it only uses a little bit – the cleaner goes a long way, and it smells nice.
  • This machine is more bulky than other floor cleaners that I have used, and it’s heavy like a vacuum cleaner (actually it reminds me of a smaller version of a carpet cleaner).  BUT it sure beats using a mop and bucket.  And the results are amazing…trust me.
  • It’s loud.  But worth it for squeaky clean floors.
  • Using this floor cleaner has cut down my floor cleaning time – it’s fast.
  • I would highly highly recommend it…in fact my mom has already bought one and she loves it too!

Disclosure:  I was given this Hoover Floormate Deluxe for review but I really truly love it.  All opinions and words written here are all my own…as always.

  19. I use a Vileda mop and bucket. I’d really love to try this product out though. My floors get so dirty with a really messy toddler, 8 year old and a dog. Does this product work as a floor vacuum too or is it recommended you vacuum first before using it?

  20. Currently I use my own power! Hands and knees. This is amazing! I would value this addition to my family – what a great tool!
    We have a few allergies in my home and this would help with ensuring our home is extra clean.
    Thanks for the review & the opportunity to have this join my cleaning team.

  21. I currently vacuum, then use a swiffer. I find it really strong smelling and I have to use quite a few for all my flooring. Would like a better, more environmentally friendly alternative.
    Did you vacuum first? PS I have dogs so pretty sure I would still have to vacuum first.

  22. We use a mop and bucket,wash,rinse then use a hardwood floor cleaner on a swiffer type mop.We have 8 cats and this would be amazing! Thanks for the chance 🙂

  23. Right now a wet swifter that does not work very good, in fact I think it makes the floors look worse, but with having a bad back it’s easier for me to use, this machine would be the ultimate helping tool for me, I love it!!!!

  24. Right now I fill the kitchen sink with soapy water and use a Norwex cloth. Wash on my hands and knees… There must be an easier way!

  25. Wow, your floor looks sparkling! Love a nice clean home too. We tend to use our shark steamer (although I think it’s only meant for tile- oops!).

  26. I use a spray and mop contraption, I still don’t feel like my floors are as clean as they could be


  27. I use the broom , the mop and bucket , and the vacuum daily as my st Bernard has big dirty paws and slobbers constantly,,, need all the help I can get

  32. Live in a beach town with two dogs and a husband that enjoy morning walks on the beach. What a sandy mess.

  33. Oh how I would love to clean my floors on my feet! 90% of the time I am on my hands and knees trying to get my hardwood clean (the other 10% is with a microfiber mop). Tried the Swiffer wetjet for hardwood with poor results : (

  34. I currently use the Swiffer wet mop… it’s a good cheap solution, but I know it could be waaaaay better.

  35. Hand and Knees with a Bucket and a Rag. I do love a clean floor. We just installed hardwood this spring and would love this slick Dream machine. Thanks for the chance. PS: keep up the great recipes. We have tried so many that you post. Your pinterest page is a go to when I need inspiration.

  36. We are a “on hands and knees” type floor cleaner as with anything else we always end up down there to get what was missed. I’m thinking this would be awesome!! I don’t even want to know the colour our water would be…

  37. I’m using a floor cleaner with a sprayer. But the pads get really dirty before I’m even done one room and it takes such a long time to stand around rinsing them multiple times a room.

  38. I have laminate flooring and I first will swiffer dust the floor, then I will use Zep laminate floor cleaner, then I will use the Zep Wax to finish the job so if I could win this it might make my day go shorter for washing my floors….☻♥

  39. Hands n knees kinda girl with a mop & bucket between deep cleanings…. I soo need this in the worst way!! Thanks for the opportunity!

  42. I am a mop and bucket person and I feel like it is a neverending task! I actually used vinegar on the floor yesterday and that seemed to help!

  43. Windex & paper towel. WORST POSSIBLE WAY, we only have floor here & its just kind of like, there has to be an easier way. Getting down on the floor to clean hurts my back so much!

  44. I use a rubbermaid mop that has a changeable pad and a container on it that I fill with water/cleaning solution. Its alright, better than getting down on my hand and knees lol

  45. I use a rag mop on my floors. I get quite overwhelmed with all the floors we have.
    In previous homes I would wash by hand, on all 4s.

  46. I have Saltillo Mexican tiles with very deep grout grooves. Will tthis floor cleaner get down into the grooves?

  54. I hate cleaning my floors. Hate it! I’ve tried many different products for my tile and hardwood and have yet to find something I love. You’ve sold me on this! I need one now!

  55. I’m so glad to see a review on hardwood floors – I desperately want one of these but I’ve been paranoid that it wasn’t actually good to use on hardwood because of the water. Thanks for the mention of how dry the floors are when using it. Now, I’m guessing you still need to vacuum first, though? If it vacuumed all the crud up on my floor, too, it would be worth it’s weight in gold!!!

  56. Yes I still use a mop and bucket. I’ve been trying to find something to get rid of all the dirt on my kitchen floor (vinyl), Hoover Floormate Deluxe looks AWESOME!

  57. I use a crappy one step system that never really works and I end up in my hands and knees while my 4 year old laughs and my newborn screeches lol
