This is what I was hoping to find in a new machine:
1. Larger/longer spin and scrub brushes.
2. A quieter motor. I really don't like how loud the old model is. (I'd say the noise level is equivalent to an inexpensive vacuum cleaner.)
3. Larger holding tanks.
4. If you don't take the dirty water tank off as soon as you're done with the floor, a little bit of the dirty water leaks back onto the floor. It would be nice if they fixed that, too.
Anyway, I was really excited to get the new "Deluxe" model. (As excited as I would be to get a deluxe apartment in the sky. Seriously.)
When I got home and assembled the machine, I noticed right away that the spin and scrub brushes are a couple inches smaller than the original model (reduced from 6 scrubbers to 4). Why?! Who wants to spend MORE time cleaning?! Still, I was hopeful that this would turn out well, and at least the motor would be quieter. I filled the tank with hot water and the provided cleaning solution. Another thing I don't like--the tanks are now tall and thin...too tall to fill in the bathroom sink like I've always done with the other model. Since I dump the dirty water in the toilet, it's convenient to be able to fill the cleaning tank in the bathroom sink. I can't do that any more. Now I have to fill it in a the kitchen sink or laundry room sink--whichever is closer to the toilet I'm dumping the dirty water in. More steps, more work, more time spent cleaning. Add that to the smaller cleaning surface, and I'm starting to wonder who designed this machine and if they've ever actually cleaned a floor. Or anything.
I put the tanks on the machine and started it. Holy Mother of God!!! Have you ever heard the scream of a thousand tortured souls? I think I did when I turned that machine on. Certain there was something very wrong with the machine, I turned it off and made sure all the connections were tight and tried it again. Same God-awful screeching sound, you know the kind that actually makes your ear hurt deep inside? Like somebody is stabbing you in the ear with an ice pick? That's the sound this machine made. It isn't that it was just loud, it's the high pitched ear shattering tone that feels like your ears might start bleeding.
I used the machine for a few minutes to see if the noise got better, but it didn't. I called Hoover's Customer Service and explained my findings with their new machine. In the 17 minutes I was on the phone with them, an unsightly amount of water leaked out onto the floor.
Also, they have moved the on/off switch to the side of the machine so I have to bend over to turn it on/off. That's just plain inconvenient. The cord is shorter than the old model too, so now I have to spend more time searching for outlets to plug it into.
I think the floor cleaner performed well, although I can't say it cleans better than the older model.
In all seriousness, I would not recommend this model to anybody considering purchasing a Hoover FloorMate. I do highly recommend the other Hoover FloorMate Hard Floor Cleaner, however.
If Hoover is trying to improve their Hard Floor Cleaner, they should:
1. Make the cleaning surface larger.
2. Make the motor quieter.
3. Make stiffer bristles for tile flooring.
4. Figure out a way to get the machine to clean closer to baseboards.
5. Make the holding tanks larger, but make sure the one that holds the cleaning solution is still short enough to be filled in the average bathroom sink.
Update 11/2017: I spilt milk and wanted to show a video of sucking up the mess, then cleaning it. I still think it's a great cleaner, but I'm just dreading the day it will die on me.
Update 4/2017: The unit that I bought directly from Hoover died. I plugged it in and switched it on. It did the same thing as the older unit where it turned on for a second, but couldn't actually stay on. This unit is only 4 months old and it came directly from Hoover. Once again, I have a defective unit. The cleaner works great, but the motor is bad. I'm going to have to take it to the repair shop, but I still have the spare unit to use for the time being. Keep in mind that I am only cleaning my floors every other week--at most 3 times a month. I'm just doing routine cleaning, nothing major.
Update 2/2017: So I took the broken unit to the repair shop right before Christmas 2016. I didn't get it back until late January 2017. Reason being that the shop couldn't repair the unit and had requested a unit swap. So I finally got a new unit from Hoover and the unit only comes with one brush. It's blue and green colored and is for multi-floors which means you don't have to change brushes when going from different floor types. If you buy a unit from Amazon and it comes with 2 brushes, it's an old unit and you should return it. I still have the unit that I bought directly from Hoover, so now I basically have two new units.
Update 1/2017: After having the unit for only 3 months, it died. Plugged it in and turned it on, it sounded like it was going to turn on but didn't. I've searched online and apparently, this is pretty common. Either the fuse is bad or the motor is bad. I contacted Hoover and they said my unit is 2 years old already, so I needed proof of purchase for the repair under warranty. I've had to take it to a vacuum retailer. It's been 3 weeks and still no update on the repairs. Hoover is currently selling a brand new unit for $69.99 (lowest I've seen is $59.99). I went ahead and bought another one because this is the only unit that will scrub floors. I've been using a steam mop and it doesn't clear nearly as well. Hopefully, it's a newer manufactured model since it's coming directly from Hoover instead of being resold on Amazon.
I have 3 dogs...2 are male. They are constantly peeing all over the house. I have wood floors throughout the entire first floor and spot cleaning with swiffer wet jet wasn't effective nor wiping with clorox wipes which left spots. We've used the steam mop, but it didn't quite feel clean.Usually, cleaning the floors meant bringing out the janitor mop and bucket. It gets heavy and is a total pita, so it only gets done at least once a month. Decided to buy this based on previous reviews, but was skeptical of its performance. We figured it'd work for now for spot cleaning dog messes. When we first tried this out, our floors hadn't been cleaned in a while. I wished I had taken before and after pictures had I had known how effectively it cleaned. It cleaned so well and thoroughly that we ended up cleaning the entire first floor with this. It took awhile since the water and waste tanks are only so big, but it left the floors really clean without any residue, spots, or film like our bucket and mop did. You only use a small cap full of cleaner (hoover multi floor-green bottle) since it's really concentrated. It squeegees the floor so you don't have sitting water which can damage wood floors. The cleaning brushes actually rotate to scrub the floors. We're extremely happy that this thing actually cleans effectively and is so much easier on the body than pushing a heavy duty mop around. Totally got our money's worth. Would give it 5 stars if the tanks were just a bit bigger for less frequent changings.
Update: The brush unit tends to detach whenever we store it upright. Before you use the cleaner, always check to make sure the brush attachment is installed, otherwise you're just spraying cleaning water.
*****I make every effort to use the product as intended for an extended period in order to judge the product fairly. I rely heavily on honest helpful reviews when I shop and I want to help others make an informed decision as well. If you think my review is helpful,[...]
p.s. I chose to use Fabuloso instead of the Hoover Floor Cleaner Solution (which is also an excellent product), because I love the way Fabuloso makes my house smell and two cap fulls of the Fabuloso concentrate mixed with water in the solution tank did the trick! Hint - add whatever cleaner you're using AFTER you've filled the tank with water. That helps avoid excessive bubbles.
