I have tile and wood floors and have purchased several floor cleaners, all have been dissappointments. They don't last very long, leave too much water, etc. I have purchased a floor steamer, best floor cleaner I have ever purchased. Very easy to use, reasonably priced, doesn't leave a lot of water on the floor (very important when using on wood floors). I presently have a shark steamer.
I am interested in purchasing an automated (electric) floor cleaner for linoleum and hardwood floors. I need advice on the best model. I am interested in cost, ease of use, ease of cleaning, and effectiveness. I would appreciate any suggestions you may have.

Both my husband and I have physical problems and cleaning the floor was always painful for us until I got a catalog from HammacherSchlemmer which offered for $100.00 a hand push electric floor steamer cleaner which was well worth the money. The catalog also offered $50.00 gift certificate if we purchased $100.00 worth. So I got a hand held window steam cleaner for the $50.00 free certificate. I did have to pay for shipping. Both products work really great. Also, after about a year the floor cleaner malfunctioned. As they offer a lifetime guarantee (your lifetime) I called, sent it back and received a new one. Check onto Irobot.com, sharperimage.com, hammacherschlemmer.com and see for yourself. I will purchase my Irobot floor washer from Sharperimage because I will extend the one year guarantee the mfg. offers. Good hunting, and if anyone else knows of other mfg or web site of such products I would be interested in what they are. (01/23/2006)
