Best Steam Vacuum for Tile Floors

Best Steam Vacuum for Tile Floors – For sparkling clean floors without the need for chemical floor cleaners, steam mops are the answer. Using hot steam to remove grime from floors, steam mops work without the need for traditional floor-cleaning formulas, but still remove tough, dried-on stains along with everyday dust and dirt.

Plus, because the steam reaches high temperatures, these mops can sanitize germy areas like bathroom floors and pet spaces with just a few slow passes over the same area. A reusable microfiber pad or a disposable cloth attached to the head helps disperse the steam across the floor. As the steam penetrates and softens the grime on your floor, the pad picks it up and traps it. Then, you either toss the cloth or wash and reuse the pad.

ROUND UP

1.Shark S7001

Pros & Cons



This updated version of Shark’s original steam mop is a great starter model for new homeowners or recent grads starting out on their own and a great value. Amazon reviewers loved the super-easy set-up, too — just snap the pole and top handle into place and fill the tank to use.

The water tank is removable for easy filling at the sink and the steam is dispensed on demand when you want it. This steamer locks in the upright position for easy storage—unlike some others that annoyingly fall over—and the 18-foot cord means no corner is out of reach.

2.Bissell Symphony

Pros & Cons



If you’re looking for one appliance to both vacuum and steam clean your floors, the Bissell Symphony Pet is the perfect choice. Use it just as a vacuum for dry debris like pet hair, as a steam mop to wet clean or sanitize or as both at the same time. And because dry pickup stays separate from the wet dispensing, there’s no mess inside the machine.

The dust cup is super easy to empty without getting your hands dirty and in our GH Cleaning Lab tests, the Bissell was easy to use and maneuver, lightweight and comfortable to hold.

3.Black & Decker

Pros & Cons



Simply pop off the attached handheld steamer and with or without the included accessory hose, use it to steam clean shower walls and doors, the grill, kitchen surfaces, appliances, glass and mirrors and even de-wrinkle draperies and clothing with its garment steamer attachment.

While we have not tested this specific model, Black + Decker steam irons. handheld vacuums and portable carpet cleaners are all tops in Good Housekeeping Cleaning Lab tests. It has several steam settings and produces continuous steam, so there’s no trigger or button to press.

4.Shark Lift-Away Pro

Pros & Cons



This Shark also does double duty as a steam mop and above-the-floor steam cleaning tool. In mopping mode, it works with adjustable continuous steam and has a Steam Blaster nozzle for zapping stuck-on stains that need extra muscle on-the-go without having to stop cleaning to scrub them.  

Other helpful add-ons include a triangular scrubber head, a soft microfiber pocket pad for delicate surfaces and a double-sided mopping pad for more cleaning time between pad changes.

5.BISSELL 2252

Pros & Cons



With almost 1,000 5-star Amazon reviews, this Bissell steam mop is a hit. We like its slim body design for easy storage and large cleaning head to cover more ground with each pass.

Dingy grout or stuck-on stains are easy to rectify with this model: simply step down on the foot pedal, remove the steamer from the head and use the built-in SpotBoost brush to scrub messes clean.

6.Hoover

Pros & Cons



This robustly built steam cleaner has a triangular brush that can detach from the floorhead for scrubbing and deep cleaning. It offers low, medium and high steam settings and can convert into a handheld for tackling windows and worktops. It cleaned our oven of stubborn food deposits in less the seven minutes, which is a lot quicker than we could manage manually.

It comes with a great range of tools, including a carpet glider, but the round brush’s bristles bent out of place after only one use.

7.Dupray Neat Steam

Pros & Cons



This cube-shaped steam cleaner is neat and stylish, with a wide range of functions and accessories. It’s an effective machine that can reach a steam temperature of 135C , but its powerful steam output of 120g/min may prove too much for lighter cleaning jobs.

It’s heavy, weighing 5.6kg with a full tank of water, and it takes more than eight minutes to heat up. If time isn’t an issue, it offers good value for its cleaning power and the range of jobs it tackles.
