Creating a new branch in the Hoover family tree while still adhering to the company's reputation for innovation and quality, Hoover's Floor Mate is the ideal machine for anyone who has hard floors (including hard-wood floors, linoleum, tile, and others). A complete floor cleaner--and almost the definition of multifunctional--the Floor Mate vacuums, washes, and dries a floor. It has both wet and dry pickup functionality (you make the choice via a foot-controlled pushbutton), meaning that it combines a broom and a mop, getting rid of the need for dustpans and mop buckets. There are two removable containers on the front of the machine, one that serves as a receptacle for dirt and dust and another that can be filled with floor cleaner. The Floor Mate stands 43-3/4 inches tall, is 11-1/2 inches deep, and has a 20-foot cord, which conveniently wraps on the back. --A.J. Rathbun

Customer Reviews

It will not clean a floor like a mop and scrub brush.
David
It vacuums the floor very well especially when it comes to picking up all the dog hair that a regular broom doesn't help with.
Lisa A. White
We have ceramic tile floors and this Floor Mate does a very good job of cleaning them.

After using this product for the past three months, I have decided that I could not live without it. I have tile floors in my kitchen and hallway - and the grout had become so dirty and I never felt that mopping was doing much more than redistributing the dirt. It is a pleasure to clean the floor with this machine! I use HOT water which really helps to kill the germs and by taking the dirty water up off the floor after it is scrubbed, it truly gets the dirt up and off the floor. Thirty years of dirt embedded into the grout is coming out - and my once blackened grout is now white again.
The other benefit of this is that the floor is dried almost instantly - which prevents my small children from slipping on a wet floor.
If this machine ever broke - I would replace it immediately. I put it in the same indispensible categories as my dishwasher, vacuum, and washer/dryer.
I recommend this machine - which is especially nice to be able to clean floors such as basement, garage, and other areas where a sink is not available to aid in mopping - besides, this gets it much cleaner.

Guys,
Let's face it. The 'tools' we love are named DeWalt, Makita, Milwaukee and Porter Cable. There are many more, but as 'handymen' we can all agree on one thing: Hoover ain't at the top of that list, do you agree? Well, this Floor Mate absolutely deserves to be in the 'way cool and why didn't I think of that first?' category. It is OUTSTANDING!
I got my first introduction to the Floor Mate by my better half who came home one day after using one at her friend's house. Now she doesn't get terribly excited about ANY tool, appliance or such life necessities as I do, but she was almost speechless when she got home. 'Honey, you have GOT to see this thing! The floors are spotless, it's easy to use and it WORKS!' Big talk indeed from someone that just HATES vacuuming, so I figured it MUST be better than the average bear. So I tell her, why not ask your friend if we could borrow hers? (Yeah, I'll admit it; it's the male way of decision on major purchases). So she did, brought it home and let me try it.
MAJOR IMPRESSED. We have vinyl flooring in the kitchen, wood in entries and hallways and tile in the bathrooms. I tried the Floor Mate on them all and I was simply blown away. Tile is the most notable to see, as the grout just POPS out at you in its cleanliness. If it did NOTHING but tile, it would be worth it. But just change chemicals and it will do your wood floors as well. On EVERY surface I tried it on, it made the floors squeaky clean and a pleasure to not only walk on, but to look at as well.
How does it do it? First of all it has a series of scrubbing brushes up front that are quite aggressive in their cleaning action (but aggressive only in getting down to the surface; they're soft enough I'd surmise they'd never hurt a finish).

This was a nice piece of hardware, but I wonder if it was ever tested on a really dirty floor.
The FloorMate went together well, and was easy to use, but don't think that this is a substitute for a dedicated floor scrubber. It was effective at cleaning floors that had little build up or dirt, but wasn't up to the challenge of a dirty, high traffic spot like a kitchen floor.
I cleaned a three foot by three foot area of the floor, spending nearly 10 minutes on the test area, with little noticeable improvement. The cleaning agent provided, coupled with the very soft brushes did little at removing stubborn dirt. Hoover's suggestion of using a strong detergent and a stiff brush to remove the dirt made me wonder why I needed the machine in the first place.
There is no way to disable the vacuum pickup, so using a stronger, non-recommended cleaner was not possible since the vacuum would bring it into the machine. If the vacuum could be turned off, it could be used as a simble scrubber, but even that is not possible.
The scrubbing brushes provided are very soft, with no substitutes available for harder jobs.
The FloorMate is a good machine to use if you have already spotless floors and want to maintain them. However, don't expect it to compete with a dedicated floor scrubbing machine.

With over 1000 square feet of tile flooring in my home, I bought this hard floor cleaner with high hopes. My high expectations weren't completely met, but because this machine does its primary job very well, I'm giving it 4 stars.
Here is a list of irritations:
Noise: This is a very noisy machine. I wear ear plugs when using it.
Soft brushes: This machine comes with soft, sponge-like brushes, which are good for hard wood floors. However, these soft brushes will not scrub out dirt that has worked its way into the pores of the tile. It also has a hard time with sugary messes that have accumulated dirt, such as the jelly spill behind the trash can. I wish Hoover sold additional types of brushes, such as a stiff scrub brush, since the brushes can be removed and replaced.
Speed: This machine is not faster than mopping. You must go slow to do a good job.
Small spaces: It would be nice if I could reach behind the toilet with an attachment, but I suppose that would make the machine too bulky.
Despite these irritations, this machine does an excellent, thorough job at cleaning up ordinary surface dirt. It certainly does a better job than I could ever do with a mop, and with much less mess. The floors are never cleaned with dirty water and dry quickly. The machine is also frugal with its use of floor cleaning solution. One tank is almost enough to clean a 11x15' room. When cleaning, it's a good idea to walk to one side, so your dirty shoes won't leave footprints. :)
PS: You need to make sure you install the tanks correctly, especially the waste tank and filter, or the suction disappears and the machine won't pick up anything. This also happens when the waste tank fills up. The manual could explain this a little better, since installing the tanks correctly takes some practice.
