Guide Review - H2O Steam Mop
The H2O Mop uses steam and a microfiber cloth to clean dirt and grime from your floors. Want to know how it performed on our test floors?
On vinyl the H2O mop was perfect. Old stickers, jam residue, dried syrup, and the remnants of a peanut butter sandwich that had been dropped, didn't stand a chance. With a short burst of steam from the trigger and a quick wipe of the pad, the residue was gone. The amount of steam, as controlled by the trigger, was perfect. Floors dried quickly and streak free.
Sealed Hardwood and Laminate
On my sealed hardwood floors, less steam was needed. That was easily accomplished by using the trigger less often. The H2O mop did a nice job on the hardwood floors, although streaking as the floors dried was the same as with a regular mop. I'd hoped that the steam might dry the floors more quickly, eliminating steam, but even using the trigger very little left streaked floors like the ones I find after I mop with a regular mop.
On ceramic tile the mop had some trouble, not with the tile itself. In fact the tile had rarely gleamed so brightly. The problem came with the grout lines. Like other sponge-type push mops, the H2O mop tended to push debris and excess water into the grout lines. If your tile has less pronounced grout lines, the problem might not exist. The test floor had fairly deep grout lines.
Overall the mop did a great job. If your home has vinyl, hardwood, laminate, or tile floors with shallow grout lines, the H2O mop is certainly worth a look.
