Yes, the solution made for the Floormate will clean wood, ceramic tile and linoleum equally. The problem I found is that you cannot find the solution in the stores, but must order it directly from Hoover. This is easily done and will arrive in about a week. I bought 4 bottles to get it at a discount.

"FloorMate Floor-to-Floor" can be used on tile and sealed wood floor. I have not tried it yet on my wood upstairs (we use the swiffer for that) but it works great on tile!

If you do not have grout, then I'd say it is not worth it since you can just swiffer it or wipe it yourself. There is a gap when you push the machine up to the walls (maybe an inch) which for the most part has not bothered me unless there is a spill or dirty stain, then you'd just have to wipe that part by hand. I love the machine overall, but I know there is another one that is cheaper at walmart.com (maybe $130 verses $190) that does not have all the extra gadgets.

If you don't have grout then you don't need the extra spin brush but the other attachments actually I wanted the extra attachements because of areas around the toliet and the tile in my shower as well as the smaller bathrooms I have in the house. I love this and think it is really worth the money. Especially after all the steam floor cleaners that I have spent way too much on that didn't work at all! I do wish that at least one of the attachments did rotate but for right now I don't mind the elbow grease I have to use. I also think that the time you normally spend spending then mopping and then drying your are spending the same amount of time using the FloorMate but just without the huge back ache to go along with it.

Take it apart and clean it. Check to be sure you have it on "wash" or "wet pickup". If that doesn't work, look in your yellow pages for a private Hoover dealer who does repairs. If not, you might as well buy a new one -- it'll cost you that much to ship it to Hoover for repair.

If I remember correctly, it is good to use on hardwood since it vacuums up the water. You may want to double check the hoover.com website just to be sure.

I am not sure what the model number was of my older one, but the picture of this one looks like my newer one. The main difference is all of the tools that come with the newer model. The older model did not have any additional tools. I wanted the tools to help to clean the floor in smaller areas, such as in the bathroom around the toilet, etc. Other than that there really isn't much difference in the way the machine works.

They are the same, however one comes with attachments and the other does not. I bought the one with attachments, and I don't even use them. I find them to be more a pain than they are worth. The only attachment I use is the grout cleaner brushes that attach to the bottom of the floormate.

Will this product work on old waxed floors?

I work at a preschool and our floors are old and used to get waxed every year and I was wondering if this product would be good for us.

If you have the option, I would suggest that you first have all the old wax removed off the floor. I once had a kitchen with tile floors that were professionally waxed for years before I purchased the house. I had the old wax removed off the floor and found that it looked almost new again. If you did this, then the floor scrubber would give you more benefit.

This cleaner wouldn't work well on any floor. I've so far purchased two in a 5 year span and feel utterly ridiculous spending that much money on such an ineffective piece of plastic.

Question

Does this cleaner work on natural uneven stone tile?

I have a similiar question to one that has been asked before, but I did not get a full answer to that question. My question is does this floor cleaner, clean tile that has an uneven surface, such as a natural stone tile. The answer was it leaves water, but does it leave dirty water? Does it clean it and just take longer to dry?

I would have to say that it is not dirty water but clean water that is left behind. I have used mine in our store room between two different floors (one with a rubber matt on top of cement), and it has a tendency to leave small puddles of water behind. It does appear to be clean water though. I will just use a towel to wipe it up.

sjw1,

As an owner of this machine and not an expert, both the brush head and the squeegee will not be unable to reach the lower areas of your floor so cleaning will not occour there. Yes, the water not piched up by the squeegee will be dirty water. Have you tried switching to "wet pickup" and go over the wet places in different directions? I think you would want to get the floor as dry as possible. Good luck!!
