    Default Steam Cleaners/Mops...which one?

    The other day we bought a 'Vax' brand steam cleaner. Came with all the attachments but after using it twice we hate it.....handle is flimsy and when its working it has a funny smell that kind of gets you high o_O

    Anywho, we are going to take it back. Tell me about your steam mops/cleaners and why you love or hate them.

    (we have floating floor boards. We mainly wanted it for the floors but ended up getting the entire cleaner set on impluse Lol Anything that does the floors is the main objective here)

    I have a bissell lift-off which is great on the floors. You can take off the steam tank and add attachments to the hose so you can clean other things too. I really like it for the floors but when you detach it you have to keep holding down the steam button so it's hard to hold the tank and the button and clean. It would be ideal if you could just switch it on and off as needed. 10/10 for floors 7/10 for other cleaning.

    Steam is not good for the floating wood flooring , it just needs a dust mop ( one of those dry orange mops) and a slightly wet mop to clean the dirt and spills. Too much water can damage it.

    Yep. ENJO floor care system would be great for you, hurry though they are only on sale until the end of the month ($199 down from $305).

    I've been told the same as lulu. But if you still want one all I can say is what not to get. One of our clients got a new Kenwood one with a triangle head. It's sh!t. It makes a horrible noise, it takes forever to heat up and it constantly spits out water. The worst thing is the really short cord. It's just usless. I'd normally recommend the Kenwoods because I have an earlier model and love it but that one is hopeless.

    I would recommend a Spray Mop.
    Sabco have one of these and they are fantastic.
    The floorboards don't get overly wet that way
