Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub Review
Now that we’ve talked about the SpinScrub in general, let’s take a closer look at some of the main features of this innovative vacuum cleaner and what they offer.
Scrub Power and Suction.
This vacuum cleaner comes with 6 brushes that are arranged in a straight line and cover the 13-inch long nozzle head.
These brushes use a patented counter-rotating technology in order to produce a constantly powerful and yet gentle scrub making it perfect for use on materials such as sealed woods, marble, vinyl, tiles, and many other types of bare floors. This vacuum is completely capable of producing a decent suction.
The recommended operating order of the Hoover SpinScrub would be; first to vacuum in order to remove most of the dirt and debris, secondly to wash the floor while making use of the brushes and solution so as to get rid of any spill, and lastly to dry while using the air flow in order to prevent streaking.
The Hoover SpinScrub comes fitted with two tanks, one of which is used to store detergent and clean water, and the other one is used to store dirty water. This type of two tank water storage system more commonly referred to as the Hoover Dual Tank Technology.
However, for clarification purposes, we can simply refer to it as being reasonable. Each of the tanks has a large capacity of approximately 1 liter.
The tank used for clean water is capable of being charged multiple times before the tank used for dirty water is filled up.
Steam Pads and Filtration System
There is not a lot of filtration going on in this vacuum cleaner and only a replaceable and washable filter stands in the way of your nose and the particles in the air.
The filter has been well placed on the dirty water tank’s lid enabling the user to gain access to it easily and when it is removed, a plastic net will be visible and accessible and it will also b required to be cleaned every now and then.
This vacuum can be purchased from most local and online stores with a bottle of Hoover 16 oz detergent and 30 hard surface wipes. The box should also include other standard vacuum components such as a measuring cup and detergent.
You can also get a more detailed kit for an extra $50 and other additional accessories such as; a wand for an added extension, a hose, and a smaller and more manageable head which can be used for performing above the head cleaning tasks.
While this vacuum cleaner cannot perform the scrubbing, vacuuming, and drying tasks all at the same time. it is still an amazing piece of equipment due to its 3 in 1 functionality.
Its power cord is capable of being manually rewound in the vacuum’s back and it is quite long measuring approximately 27 ft.
Even more so, the 13-inch long nozzle has received a lot of praise from various users due to its long range capabilities and efficiency that enable cleaning to be done even in the furthest unreachable corners.
- Comes with a wide mouth that makes it very versatile.
- Very affordable compared to other vacuum cleaners that have similar capabilities.
- Perfect for sealed bamboo floors as it is gentle and maneuvers very easily without scratching any part of the floor’s surface.
- Excellent drying and scrubbing capabilities that ensure there is no unnecessary mess on the floor.
- Cleaning some floor surfaces such as linoleum with this vacuum might not be efficient as the brushes cannot come into full contact with floor types such as those.
- The spin brushes are a bit shorter than most of the brushes you see in advanced vacuum cleaners, therefore, making them not suitable for deep cleaning.
