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!

Question

Can I use Murphy's Oil Soap instead?

The cleaner they offer is just too expensive and I prefer the Murphy's Oil Soap for my wood floors. Do you think it would hurt to put that in there with some water dilution? I don't think it's a solvent...anyone else try it?

I haven't tried that but I did try another solution on my Scooba robot when it said not to and that was a big mistake. Bubbles everywhere and I had to majorly flush it all out and it never worked the same afterwards. I would not take the risk! You may look into vinegar instead (my robot said I could use that since it is a natural cleaner)... or Id just stick to plain old warm water. That is what we do on in-between cleanings to avoid the cost of the special cleaner (or I dilute it way more than it says). Hope that helped :)

Does it work (machine and cleaner) for laminate flooring

answer 1
We have laminate flooring upstairs and we just use the swiffer on that since there is no grout and it is a flat surface. We use the Hoover Floormate on the tile downstairs since there are lots of bumps and indentions that need that extra suction. The floor cleaner it came with does say you can use it on hardwood floors as long as they are sealed.

There are 7 round brushes on the bottom and they spin while the cleaner is on "wash" I am so happy with this cleaner...I had borrowed one from my mother and it is not available to purchase any longer (a Hoover) but this one is better because it picks up the dirty water and you don't have to go back with a mop after you scrub.

I don't use the Hoover solution as it leaves residue on the floor. I now use a little PineSol or Simple Green mixed with the hot water. My neighbor adds Fabuloso.

We generally only recommend using Hoover brand detergent for our wet products. But using a small amount of vinegar mixed with the water will not damage our FloorMate. If you're using vinegar as an alternative to the detergent, you may want to consult the manufacturer of your flooring just to make sure that it's ok for use on that surface. Hope this helps.

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.
