    Default Reccomend me a steam mop

    Hi, I'm looking for a good steam mop as I have a large tiled house. It needs to be easy to push and maneuver with a long cord. I was looking at the Shark pocket steam mop but the reviews weren't very good so now I have no idea what to get??

    TIA

    I have a kenwood and I can't recommend them enough. I've heard other people have success with other well known brands too. The cheaper ones and the ones advertised on the tv have a lot of plastic componants including the handle and they tend to break easy. My mum bought one from Aldi and it's useless. It doesn't even heat the water up properly.

    I have an old Kenwood one too, it's great! Dries quickly and leaves the floor spotless. I bought it on eBay for about $50!

    Things to keep in mind when buying are the type of mat or sock on the bottom, personally I dislike the socks they fall off and get dirty too quickly and can leave muddy streaky. Also they differ whether they are instant of need to heat the water, monster for example needs to heat it takes about 10 minutes before you can use, but you can buy some that are instant. Some also have swivel heads and others don't. Mine was about $300 it is a Hoover, it has Velcro type pads that you just rip off, it heats instantly and it's head swivels amazingly it gets into all the owners. Definitely worth he extra $, I tried several others and they all crap in comparison!

    You want to be careful with the floating floor boards and steam mops. They can actually warp them pretty easy

    Steam mops are good but the floor scrubber is even better, I have the vax hard floormate and it cleans wood and tiles plus any spills or messes from the kids during the day.

    Your advice was good thanks Arli I like the Velcro pad and swivel head and I have decided on a Black and Decker smart steam mop.
