answer 2
The floor would need to be sealed and the surface should be reasonably smooth for us to recommend using the Floormate on bamboo hardwood. Vinegar and water should not harm the Floormate but we do only recommend use of Hoover brand detergent (if using floor cleaner) for this floor cleaner. Hope this helps.

The plastic gears will wear out in 4 month, LONG before you ever have to replace brushes

answer 2
The need to replace the brushes will depend on how often the FloorMate is used. Once a year would be our recommendation. Other maintenance includes rinsing the filter and nozzle between uses. Please see your owner's manual for more details. Hope this helps.

Question

Is it recommended to use bottled or filtered water if you have hard water?

We have hard water and am wondering if I should use bottled or filtered water instead of tap water? I know with the cat dish I own I have to use filtered water because tap water calcified the motor and I had to get a new one

Kat, I've had one for 5 years and use somewhat hard water, so far no problems, but I only use it about 4 times a year. Also, I was using the 'old' cleaning solution that was recommended with my machine, which they no longer make. I am going to try the new cleaning solution for the first time this weekend. I hope it doesn't leave a film and cleans as well as the old one.

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.

Mine doesn't clean anything. Doesn't dispense solution or contact the floor well enough to spread what little it does smear. Still waiting to hear from Hoover after 5 days.
