    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!

    Saves me time and saves my knees when washing my kitchen floor and yet does a much better job too. Easy to clean up machine after use. Parts easily removable. I still vacuum my floor with my regular vacuum first however as it is more powerful.

    Best Hard Floor Cleaner Ever!

    By judym

    from Huntsville, AL, United States

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

    My SpinScrub is old-ish, I've had it for 3 years, and I can tell you I use it twice a week faithfully. I have two large dogs and now a toddler grandchild, so these floors get messy. With the big dogs going in and out, and the dirt they do track in (can't teach them to wipe their feet!) and remodel projects going on, there is dirt aplenty. Sometimes the silt sifts to the bottom of the dirty water return. I am always pleased with this cleaner's efficiency and ease of use. You should buy replacement filters often, if you don't at least rinse and air them, they get a punky odor. I would attach photos but am too embarrassed at the coffee to tar colored water that comes off the floors. We have all hard surfaces, tile and hardwoods, and I haven't had a bit of problem with the hardwoods, to date. They do need refinish and waxing, but that will wait for now. Just so glad to have clean floors. I do have one of those hurricane mops, and use that for quick pickups, but even when I go afterwards to do what I consider a deep clean with the floormate, even in less traffic areas, the water always tells the story of dirt left behind. Not so fond of the newer one, bought one to try and it didn't pick up the water that great. This older model does, and it will vacuum decently too, as long as you don't wait a week to get the grunge off with your regular vacuum. It tackles the hair from my Husky and Malamute, as well as spilled milk and tossed food from our grandchild. This cleaner is great!!

    Floor Soul Mate!

    By lisaemc2

    from Cambridge, MA, United States

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

    This home appliance has been a long time coming. I’ve been bending & squeezing for decades. I can finally do the “Sock Test� and win. The Hoover Floormate is more than worth the price. I have been using it for over 2 years & even tho it doesn’t diminish my housework time, I feel more accomplished because I don’t stir up dust by sweeping or have to deal with standing water. The one thing I have conflict with is the manual says to vacuum then empty out the trap. For that to work I’d have to vacuum the entire house before I started to mop. My house is too big for that to work so I do it room by room which means I abuse the filter. The filter still preforms magnificently. I LOVE THIS MACHINE! One thing I have found that works when the filter gets dirty is to pour a bleach/water mix on the floor & Hoover it up! They’re only $12 so go for it!

    Multi Purpose Use for a Floor Mate

    from fort pierce, fl

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

    My Floor Mate is over 15 years old and has been in storage. I use this for both my linoleum floors and my indoor/outdoor carpet. It easily cleans the carpet due to the minimal thickness of the carpet itself. Works great and it's almost a Classic.

    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.

    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.

    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!!!

    Thought I loved it but....

    By joeschmoe

    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.

    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

    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!!!

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

    I've had my FloorMate for years now and is by far hands down the best floor cleaning Best product I have ever used! I'm reading some of these negative reviews and wonder if we are using the same machine!? I'm 56 year old male who was in the Army and understands clean and takes pride in my home and how clean we keep it! We have two dogs and it seems I'm always doing a project around the house which when finished requires a good cleaning. The FloorMate never lets me down! We have Holiday dinners, Superbowl parties and the FloorMate just does the best job! All I can say is that these people with these negative reviews must not have their machines connected properly or maybe the competition is up to something (Just saying!) Great machine and if and when this one dies I will definitely get another! Thank you FloorMate!

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

    It is pretty weak for tile floors. I get a lot of dirty water but the effectiveness of the grout brushes leave the grout dirty. I regularly mop and use machine rarely. I think stronger brushes would help.
