Questions & Answers for Hoover Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub Hard Floor Cleaner, FH40010

Question

Does it clean well under cabinets/against baseboards?

My dirtiest areas happen to be in the area underneath the cupboards, dishwasher, etc. as they don't go all the way to the floor. I'm concerned that the scrubber head won't fit underneath and be able to get all the spills and stuff that accumulate there. Also, how far up to the walls does it get clean? Thanks.

It isn't very good along base boards it fits under cabinets but the scrubbers are a few inches back on the machine and it doesn't suck all of the water up.

It actually worked pretty well under the cabinet ledges, and gets quite close to the wall... closer than I expected. However you would probably have to go back and mop or wipe around some hard to reach places... We have a small bathroom and it really didn't do much in there or maneuver around the toilet. Unusual angles are tricky with this thing.
I am returning it.

We would not recommend the Floormate for cleaning out the garage. It's designed for in-house cleaning. Kitchen's, bedrooms, bathrooms etc.

Both model on Wal-Mart's website are blue'ish.

Thanks, Val

I think they change year to year as I have had the purple and red and now I find a blue one out there at Costco and a green one at Walmart. The Costco one looks cheaply made compared to this model. I noticed several changes since the red model I bought last year.

I've noticed some are different colors too. I think it's just the different models and upgraded versions. Mine is blue and I think it's got "wide path" in the name. Mine also comes with two sets of brushes/brissles. One for regular floors and another for grouted floors. I'm writing this from work so I don't have the unit in front of me. I'd guess that the brushes are at least 12" x 4" and they move in circular motion.

Check with the Hoover Service Center on line. I found this web site, but did not see where you could get parts, although you could send them this question.

Yes it can. The tanning salon I go to is all concrete floors and this is what she uses to clean her floors. That's who recommended it to me :)
