Hoover TwinTank Steam Mop

With two preschoolers, that love to play in the dirt, keeping our floors clean is not always an easy task.  Sister has asthma, so I tend to steer clear of cleaners with harsh chemicals or scents.  I also avoid mop buckets, because the idea of putting dirty water back on my floor is very UN-appealing.

The Hoover TwinTank Steam Mop is a great option for cleaning messy floors in a breeze.  It does require simple assembly fresh out of the box, but that was easy.  While Hubs took a moment to assemble, I took a moment to amuse the children.  Hoover TwinTank Steam Mop

Please note the big cheesy grin behind the cleaning pad.  Smile

Once the unit was assembled, We had a look at the solution control dial, and dialed that baby back over to STEAM ONLY.  I will not be using the chemical cleaner (that came with the steam mop) unless absolutely necessary.  Hoover TwinTank Steam Mop

I let my floors get pretty grimy while waiting for this bad boy to come in.  Please don’t judge me.  I have preschoolers.  LOL.

Fortunately, the steam was enough to clean our linoleum floors.

Hubs said that the Hoover TwinTank Steam Mop was easy to use and lightweight. Hoover TwinTank Steam Mop

Even better is that the mop pad can go in the washer to get rid of that grime for good!

After Hubs cleaned the floor in the kitchen, I decided to give the steam mop a whirl in the bathrooms.  I should have dusted the floors first.  Hoover TwinTank Steam MopIt did clean the floors (also linoleum) well, but left a wet lint line along the sink base that I had to go back and wipe up.  Now I just make sure I’ve dusted/swept well before using it. 

I do like the Hoover TwinTank Steam Mop.  That being said, I would not spend a hundred bucks on it.  I would spend $80 on it for myself.  For $60 in a holiday sale, I’d buy some for gifts. 

Two things I would change— 1) I would add a loop to the handle to enable hanging.  Floor space is at a premium in my laundry room, so if I could put a loop on the handle and affix the resting plate to the wall, I would hang t up. 2) I would replace the steam trigger with a steam switch, so you didn’t have to hold the trigger down all the time to get the steam. 

Even still, I would definitely recommend the Hoover TwinTank Steam Mop to friends and family.

I received a sample of this product to facilitate my review, but my opinions are entirely my own.
