Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub Wet/Dry Vacuum Review

Floors are one of my pet peeves! I can stand the house being a little cluttered, toys being out of place and the dishes in the sink for a small amount of time, but I can't stand dirty floors. Whether it's carpet or hard surface floors, I can't stand sandy, sticky, dirty looking floors!!! While the my vacuum and Bissell Pro Heat Pet Carpet Cleaner both do a fabulous job of keeping the carpets clean, I have my reservation about a mop and broom on the hard surfaces. Of course, for everyday use it's fine. For keeping my hard surface floors clean, and I mean really clean, I use my Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub Wet/Dry Vacuum. It's the perfect 3-in-1 cleaner for hard surfaces like laminate, hardwood, linoleum and similar surfaces!

Why I bought a Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub Wet/Dry Vacuum...

During my entire pregnancy I had debated what type of cleaning machine I would get for cleaning the kitchen and bathroom floors because I knew that it wouldn't be long before Miss K would be crawling around exploring things on her own. Aside from normal foot traffic, we also have two large dogs and between everyday living and the dogs, the potential for germs, dirt and grime outweighed my comfort when it came to being a new mom and knowing that my baby girl would be crawling on the floors. 

When I purchased my Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub vac it was around the same time that the Shark Steam Mop was coming out. I had considered that option as well, but considering that it was similar to a mop, I didn't bother. So what's the big deal about having a mop? Nothing- I have one myself that I use. However, I wanted something that wouldn't just push the dirt around. Instead, I wanted something that would spray water and solution, *scrub* the floors, then picks the dirty water up and also rinse the remaining residue and dirt of the floors. Sorry, but you just don't get that with a mop. You do however get it with the Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub! That's why I love it and that's why I am sharing my review! 
What's so great about the Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub Wet/Dry Vacuum?
Counter-rotate brushes cleans even the dirtiest messes! 

  • This machine has several scrubbing brushes that counter-rotate to clean even sticky, stubborn messes!
  • No bags! It has a tank that holds the clean water and cleaning solution and a separate canister that holds the dirty and dirty water.
  • The handle folds down for easy storage in tight spaces.
  • It has a vacuum, wash and dry setting. (Though I have never used my dry setting as it does a great job of picking up the water on the initial cleaning.)
  • Easy to use and light weight.
  • It cleans the surface by putting down water and cleaning solution, scrubbing and sucking up the dirty water while also rinsing. No pushing around dirty water or pads!
  • No messy pads, buckets or wet mops to store away.

Overall Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub Review

Several things in comparison to a basic mop or cleaning machine that uses a pad!
Great! It runs about $125-150 depending on where you purchase it from. I got mine from Walmart but I have found them much cheaper on Amazon from the Hoover dealer.
Awesome! It vacuums all hard floor surfaces including hardwood, tile, linoleum and marble. It has 4 settings; vacuum, cleaning, rinse and dry.
Super easy! The Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub Wet/Dry Vacuum is the size of an average vacuum so, it does not take up a lot of space. In addition, the handle also folds down to make it shorter and easier to store.

The Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub has a handle that folds down for easy storage if needed. 
Cleaning Results:
Excellent! It even has a spray trigger to apply extra solutions to hard, stuck-on, sticky, greasy, grimy stains!!! Great scrubbing action combined great pickup/drying action.
Cleaning Solution Price:
Not bad at all. I use both the Hoover brand and the Walmart brand hard surface floor cleaner and both do great. I love the smell of the Hoover cleaner, though! 
Overall Rating:
5 Stars!!! If you are looking for the best hardwood floor cleaner then I recommend the Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub Wet/Dry Vacuum!
