    Default Recommend me a steam mop

    Suitable for hardwood floors please
    OR a different type of mop that is equally as easy and doesn't use chemicals!
    Thanks xx

    We just bought a karcher (like today) only just started using it but happy so far. DH thinks its a gadget so he is currently cleaning the grout on the kitchen tiles. Lol

    Can I use this to mop floors? Would it be on hardwood?

    I have tiles, but I bought a Kenwood first, which were meant to be good. It died after a year and the same thing happened to my neighbour. It was also a bit bulky for getting under furniture. I was then recommended the H2O mop advertised on morning television. The bright green plastic one. I was very sceptical but I must say it's light, easy to use and I've been happy with it. Leaves less moisture on the floor than the kenwood and it's been really good.

    I'm not sure if you know (sorry if you do) but apparently with timber floors you need to be careful not to use a steam mop once the varnish/coating starts wearing in places. It will cause moisture problems in your floor. Always use a steam mop on low setting for timber so it's not too wet and be careful as it wears.

    I a heard this about the floor boards.... I have a cheapie one at the moment that's dying and it doesn't have adjustable output.
    I was actually thinking about getting one if the green h2o mops!

    Yeah my hubby's family install timber floors for a living and they usually tell people not to use steam mops. However this is to be on the safe side. We have floorboards through the house we're about to move into and hubby said it's fine as long as you keep the varnish/polyurethane coating up to the the floor. If it wears through to timber it will be bad with a steam mop. The highest wear places will be in the kitchen (usually in front of the sink) and in often used doorways first.

    The h20 mop feels really 'plasticy' and not good quality but it does a good job. I bought extra mop pads for it but they soak really well in napisan and come out good as new. This mop has 3 or 4 settings. I use low for timber. Hope that helps!
