I remember being about eleven years old and watching my Mother open her gifts Christmas morning. As she ripped open the large box I realized it was a vacuum and felt a little disappointed for her. However there she was jumping up and down (literally) with joy. Fast forward 19 years and you will find me equally as happy to receive either a piece of jewelry or a new household item. Anything to make my job easier is always OK with me. And I realize now, my Mother felt the same.
One item I really wanted this year was a steam cleaner for my kitchen and bathroom floors. A few months back my old one busted and it's been back to my hands and knees ever since. Between the kids and the dogs, my floors must be cleaned daily to every other day and a traditional mop just does NOT do the trick. Right before the holidays I go into cleaning overdrive. We do a lot of rearranging to work the Christmas tree and decor into our home and I know that holiday company is just around the corner, so I want to keep my home looking it's best.
Thanks to Hoover this year I got a jump start with the Enhanced Clean Disinfecting Steam Cleaner. This Mop goes above and beyond your average steam cleaner. What makes the Hoover Enhanced Clean Disinfecting Steam Cleaner different from it's competitors is that your getting double disinfecting power! Hoover includes a hospital grade disinfecting solution that works in conjunction with this mop. A unique two tank design allows you to clean and disinfect with both steam and the solution or simply clean the dirt and grim with steam power alone.
Hoover brings you a variety of features to make this a truly enhanced steam cleaner. I mentioned the added disinfectant power which Disinfects & Kills or Removes 99.9% of harmful bacteria - including Swine Flu (H1N1), MRSA, Influenza A, Staph, Salmonella, and E-Coli, on hard non-porous surfaces, when used with Hoover Multi-Purpose Disinfectant.
You also get a dial control to adjust the amount of solution being used depending on how tough the job. Right out of the box you also get 3 microfiber pads, which was great for someone like me who uses this mop daily. I don't have to worry about washing the pad and having it ready for the next day. These pads are great on multiple flooring surfaces. Also included is a carpet glider to refresh carpeting, a 8oz bottle of solution to get you started and a measuring cup to poor just the right amount of solution or water into the tanks.
To start you fill your front tank with water and the secondary back tank with solution if needed. These tanks are removable making filling a breeze. You do however want to make sure you secure the cap to the tank well after your done filling it. When you replace the tank it goes back in the mop cap side down, so if you didn't tighten the cap well, you will get some leakage.
Once your Mop is filled with water, you can plug it in and wait for the steam. The front of the unit has an indicator light letting you know when your steamer is heated and ready for use. This happens fairly quick, so there isn't much waiting around. Now your off and ready to tackle that dirt and grim. The swivel head is great for maneuvering along baseboards, the kitchen table and even behind the toilet bowl. When your done mopping you can rest your mop in the included cooling tray to protect your floors from the heat while the mop cools down.
I love this steam mop, it tackles sticky juice spills, muddy paw prints and disinfects even the yuckiest areas of the house, like behind the boys toilet (EWW). When I'm done I toss the dirty mop pad in the washer and slip on a new one so I'm one step ahead for the following day. What a great time saver this mop is for a Mom with her hands full. With the Hoover Enhanced Clean Disinfecting Steam Cleaner, I rid my floors of not only dirt but hidden germs in less time then it takes for me to wash just half the floor by hand. This gives me more time for my children and the multiple other task awaiting me on any given day.
