I believe you would want to make sure that the product placed in with the water for cleaning will not cause a build up going through your machine.
I would think that you could use it, but what I read on the cleaning of wood floors the ratio of cleaner to water may be different than the ratio to tile surfaces.

I wouldn't recommend anything that gets very sudsy. However, you may be able to dilute it enough to prevent that. (I'll try it myself...) I like Odo-Ban; it disinfects, is non-toxic, and pretty inexpensive for a heavy user like myself.

My wood floor (australian cyprus) is not sealed, will it damage the floor to use the hoover on it? Thank you.

As with any wood floor, you should do a test area first (maybe with a tooth brush for scratch testing). This unit does a great job for removing the water, so it doesn't sit on the floor, which would cause the water damage. This item does not heat the water, so dry time is a little longer, but it has a "dry" knob to pick up that extra water.

I have australiam cyprus as well, but mine is finished with a glitza finish. I would ask your installer. But I would say it would be better than most other methods of cleaning the floor, I would think. Other methods would leave it wet and a chance for the mop water to soak in. The floormate leaves the floor dry as you mop.

This unit you will have to assemble, but it is fairly easy, which is great for cleaning, since it comes apart easily. I would check with Hoover for any extra brushes.
I would compare this item to mopping but better, it sucks up the water and it does have the scrubber brushes that are similar to using the carpet cleaner from Hoover. Cleaning grout is pretty much a hands only job.

No, this model features a hose attachment that plugs into the side with a small grout brush that sprays water and solution.

I don't use any cleaner. I use a 30/70 mixture of vinegar and water. Makes my ceramic tile floors shine and I no streaks. I have always found cleaners to have to much soap and will actually trap dirt on your floor causing you to have to clean it more often.

I have only used the cleaner that came with the machine so far. That is the only downfall, I think I am going to have to buy their cleaning product to be sure it is compatible with their equipment.

We just used our cleaner for the first time today on our ceramic tile floors and love it. We will need to get the grout cleaning brushes also. They are available from Hoover.com. Just do a search at Hoover.com for the model and the brushes pop up.

It appears so based on the manual, but I suggest you stay away from this thing. I returned it to Walmart after rather bad experience cleaning my hardwood floor.

The Hoover Floormate does an excellant job picking up dirt, wet or dry and the machine manipulates very easy around furniture.

It struggles on uneven surfaces, because it uses suction to pull the water solution back into the machine. So when I've used it on uneven natural stone tile, it leaves some small puddles of water. I just turn on a fan and it air dries pretty fast.
