    I like the product for what it does but I have some recommendations for others that might improve their experience. First, forget the vacuum mode. I use a separate stick vac to quickly get up all the loose dirt first. With the Floormate you would have to complete all the vacuuming first anyway to prevent mixing dirt with wet parts. I use the Floormate strictly for its washing capability, nothing else. Second, I don't bother with the 'Dry' setting at all either. The Floormate picks up the water during the wash cycle anyway. I just keep it in that position and stop dispensing water as I go over the area a second time to suck up what's left. Works fine. I hope this info gets posted since the other review I wrote never made it to your website.

    I have had Floormate cleaners for years--notice I said cleaner(s)! I've been through 3 of these because I use them weekly and have little carpet in my home. The most recent one was this model...it lasted long enough to get out of the warranty--13 months. It's a lot of money to spend on a gadget that will break in a few months. I've noticed that they have been made more and more "cheap" and breakdown much easier than the earlier versions. I will look into and possibly try other version of wet-vacs and see if anything else works better..and lasts longer!

    I am so pleased with my machine. I had one years ago when they first came out and was heartbroken when it died. I now have gotten another one. And it works like a dream. My floors and my clean feet thank you. Goodbye mop!!!

    I purchased this a while back and it worked great! Stopped using it, due to the fact that the on/off switch doesn't work most of the time. Hoping that if I pull it back out to use it...it won't give me any problems. Sadly it repeats itself. Poor design in the switch.

    I purchased this unit at a discount store and really was hoping it would work as well it reads. I have used the unit on wood floor, ceramic tile (super job) on the tile and slate. The only improvement I would make is a larger cleaner water tank. Dirty water is fine.

    Hoping for the Best - 3rd One

    By JDWinter

    from Arizona

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    I have had three of these floor cleaners. The first one lasted 8 years, which was very good. The second only two years. The motor burned out. Upon inspection I found that the plastic motor container was "smashed", cracked and was broken inside. Finally the motor stopped running due to interference from the broken parts binding it. I could not believe it, as we had not dropped the unit, or anything except used it. Could have been in shipping or in manufacturing, nothing else was possible. I am hoping that the new one will last like the first. Time will tell. I do like the cleaning action and want it to continue for a while.

    this is one great machine. Having a bad back and right leg from my military service this makes cleaning the tile in my house easy and fun. I don't have to break my back to clean and it does what it says its going to do clean and clean good.

    Tile floor

    By Boneman

    from Tipton County, TN, United States

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    In 2004 I completely tiled my entire home and was told by the tile MFG that this FloorMate was the best on the market. I purchased one and let me tell you, I will never be without one. We absolutely wore the first one out but it took ten years. I have purchase a new one and have repaired the first one. Repair parts are avaliabe and very affordable. Everything about this unit is perfect, the ease of use, the length of the power cord, the performance is unmatched. I will eventually wear out my new one, but rest assured, it's a Hoover and I'll buy another one.

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    This works great. I used a mop jet but had to change the disposable cloth 5 times just for my kitchen. Then used another mop/vacuum with pads you just throw in washer, ok but again changed several times to clean floor. This is the solution for my floor, with dogs and kids it is a must. BUT.... It needs a auto button or lock on the spray level which is very hard to press. My hand gets cramps in it and I have to stop and give my hand a rest. Mother was visiting and wanted one but after using for a minute she could not do it anymore, she was disappointed.

    Not great on tile floors

    By Holly W

    from NH, United States

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    We bought the FloorMate over a year ago to use on the tile floors we have throughout our house. It does a mediocre job at best. We would not recommend the FloorMate to people that want really clean floors. We are looking for something better and will keep using it until we find a better product.

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    Loved the older Floormate SpinScrub. It lasted 5 years and cleaned the floors well. Did not have many complaints. The new model was disappointing. We are now going to buy a Bissell Symphony. Pros: 1. The vacuum worked well to pick up dry food 2. Long cord 3. Easy water disposal 4. Scrub brushes good Cons: 1. The suction to pick up the water was inadequate from the day of purchase 2. Very heavy and awkward to maneuver 3. Forms puddle under machine even after dumping dirty water. 4. Only lasted a year before suction went out.

    Great features, but hard to clean interior piece

    By SZB73

    from Pennsylvania

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    It works fantastically well at cleaning my ceramic tile and hardwood. I like that I can rinse it out, and change out the filter as needed. But I HATE that I can't clean the filter assembly/interior- mold and mildew get trapped in there and there's no way to get it out. If this issue were resolved, I'd give it 5 stars and recommend it to anybody.

    Best for my tile floors

    By mike malone

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    Hoover stands by the Floor Mate. This is my 4th unit in 6 years that i have bought for me and my family members. The Floor Mate cleans the grout in the tile floors like it is new. Using a mop just moved the dirt all over the floor and not down the drain. I am a 62 year old man and will not let my wife use my Floor Mate just like my Harley. It's fast and cleans like you have spent hours on the floor. Thats what i tell her so i have more time to ride. Its as good as it gets!!!

    By joeschmoe

    from Lansing, MI, United States

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    I have bought 2 of these floor cleaners. The first one worked well and had to be replaced in a year and a half. The second one, however, I was not as lucky with. One of the wheels broke off within a month of buying it and was replaced by Hoover immediately. Although I had this cleaner for more than a year, it was only used about a dozen times before the motor died. It would cost almost as much to have repaired than to buy a new one. Not so sure I'd buy another one. Although it worked well, when it worked, I don't think it should have died within 12 times of using it.

    Solution tank leaks

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    I bought this model two years ago and absolutely loved it. BUT, I have had to replace the solution tank twice, and now can't find one in stock. I told all my friends how good it worked and how much I loved using it. I am very disappointed in this products solution tank. It leaks. The spring mechanism is not very good. I am going to have to buy a new floor scrubber and am not sure if I am going to go with the newer version from Hoover.

    By Lisa59

    from Mesa, AZ, United States

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    I have owned Floormates for many years. The early machines were very well made & lasted a long time with inexpensive service repairs. I bought a new machine a little over 1 year ago. It lasted just under the 1 year warranty. The engine burned out. It was replaced & I was told the warranty only lasted the remainder of the original warranty. Within 5 months the replacement engine burned out. I'm now looking at as much or more to replace the engine than to buy yet another machine. I'm disappointed in the quality & not sure I want to invest, yet again, in a machine that might last a year & then be very expensive to repair. I shouldn't have to buy a new one every year. Yes, I have about 1500 sf of tile & I use my machine as needed, but my Hoover vacuum is still going strong after 5 years with nominal maintenance. Unfortunately, there isn't really anything else on the market that works quite the way a Floormate does & I love Hoover products.

    I literally bought my Hoover floor mate a few hours ago so this review may be premature but I am in love right now!!  I cleaned my ceramic tile kitchen and my parquet in the den tonight and I am shocked and appalled at the dirt it pulled up...I mopped both floors with PineSol a week ago.  I love the smell of PineSol but it leaves a sticky residue on my floors.  The Hoover left my floors looking amazing and I know they're clean since I dumped a bucket of grime down the toilet...love love love this cleaner so far!!!

    BEST HARD FLOOR CLEANER EVER

    By MAMAMALT

    from PALM COAST, FL

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    I now have 2 of these machines. One I keep on the screen porch that has ceramic tile flooring, and the other one I keep in the house which has hardwood floors and also some laminate flooring. I just can't believe anyone not giving this machine 5 star reviews. It replaces the old mop and bucket where your basically mopping your floors with a bucket full of dirty water, after the first pass with the mop, YUK. I also have 8 little Maltese doggies, as I am a foster Mom with a Rescue. Sometimes there are accidents so this machine does all the clean-up work. In my opinion the Hoover - FloorMate can't be beat if you like clean floors that you could almost eat off this machine is for you. I can honestly say that I really love it. Couldn't live without one for sure!!!

    Great Cleaner - BUT: Poor Quality/Warranty

    By MikeMc

    from Encinitas, CA, United States

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    I also have had my Floormate(r) for just over a year.  It really did a good job of cleaning!  I would have touted it endlessly, BUT!  It died just after the warranty ran out.  It was a motor problem.  The motor started making really loud "grinding" noise and finally stopped.  I found motor bearings on the floor!  Repair would have been nearly half the cost of a new one.  I just expected better quality from Hoover!

    Great floor cleaner

    By Lizie

    from Buffalo NY

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    This is a very efficient way to clean your floors, leaves them cleaner than washing by hand, but does not get into corners and along the woodwork.  Also, the squeegies wear out, and that is a simple thing to replace but it used to be that you just had to buy the squeegie for $7 or $8, now you must buy a "Hoover Nozzle Assembly" and they cost $20 for the Deluxe model or $29 for the regular Floormate.  Would like to know the reason for the change? Very disappointing!  Otherwise it's a great machine at a reasonable price!

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    I wrote an one-star rating earlier. The cleaner is cheaply made, thats a fact. However, after my complaint and bad review, customer service contacted me and offered to send me a new cleaner without warranty, which I gladly  accepted. The machine arrived today and is working. The amazing thing about this is, it's by far not as noisy as the broken one, so I hope it will not brake is soon as the first one and maybe the broken cleaner had a defect from the beginning. The cleaning result is, as with the first one, really good!

    By dissapointed66

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    Brushes have been freezing up from day one. In the shop, couldn't mimic the problem. In one year of ownership have used a total of 5Hrs. Now, just a little over a year, repair facility says not covered by warr., the motor is froze solid? Could be a decent machine if the manufacturer would stand behind the product. Not worth $150 for 5 Hrs. of my labour.

    Worst Chinese cr.. ever, stay away from Hoover!

    By TheGerman

    from Corpus Christi, TX

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    I bought that Chinese built machine 14 months ago. Yesterday it finally quit on me. From the first day on the noise was just awful, like a jet fighter flying by, you need ear protection. Now the vacuum pump / motor assembly rusted out, because it is made of cheap steel and not out of high quality plastic. I called Hoover customer service, they don't give a hoot since it's out of warranty. The repair cost would be more than a new one!

    Comments about Hoover® Floormate Hard Floor Cleaner with Spinscrub (FH40010B):

    Look, it is basically a small wet dry vac that sprays water. The brushes don't take the labor out of you scrubbing something stuck on but I sometimes step on top of the unit and it does the job. I also have a spray bottle of the hottest water I can get w/ solution to let it soak on messes. The first time you vaccum up the brown water on your floor, you'll be glad you bought one.

    HATE IS A STRONG WORD, BUT AFTER PURCHASING FIVE OF THE OLDER MODEL THAT WORKED LIKE THE BOMB, I THOUGHT I WOULD TRY THE NEW MODEL. THE BIGGER DISPENSERS BANG INTO MY KITCHEN CUPBOARDS WHEN TRYING TO CLEAN UNDER THEM; THE LIQUID DISPENSER DOES NOT SPRAY ENOUGH WATER, EVEN WITH THE ADDED SURGE OF WATER; THE SUCTION LEAVES A LOT TO BE DESIRED. MY HOME IS 3,650 SQ. FT. OF TILE AND WOOD SO I AM ALWAYS USING THE FLOORMATE. MAYBE I GOT A "LEMON".
