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.

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.

Question

Does this clean textured porcelain tile floors?

We have tried everything to clean our kitchen floors. And it tears up EVERYTHING. I'm wondering how well the brushes on this machine can handle a textured tile floor. If anyone knows....please answer back. Thanks!!

It worked pretty good on large tile with about 1/2 grout lines, but the areas that had buildup of kitchen dirt/grease required extra scrubbing, especially on the uneven parts of the tile and in the grout lines. I am fully confident that with normal, repeated cleaning it will do a great job.

It's not a vaccuum, it doesn't have any brushes. It's a steam mop with a plastic head on which you put a cotton pad, and it's flat. So, I am not sure if it's going to clean something textured, depends on the texture... You can always buy it and try it and if you don't like it Walmart will take it back within a certain period of time.

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.

The floormate has 6 scrubbing brushes with a 13" path vs
the spinscrub has 7 scrubbing brushes with a 15" path, also it comes with interchangeable spinscrubs and a portable detail kit attachments for those hard to reach places.

Best I can tell is that floormate is 13" cleaning path and Spinscrub is a 15" cleaning path. Also 31.6 lbs vs 23 lbs

No. I have found that you have to keep working the scrubbers over an area that is hard to clean up. Like anything else ... you end up on your hands and knees. It is best to get to the mess before it dries and this unit should do a good job.

No and you would not want that on some type of floors ie wood. But it gets up almost everything due to the brush action :)
