Steam mops are the new thing in home cleaning, promising an eco-friendly, detergent-free alternative to the traditional mop and bucket. Are these new fangled devices worth the extra dough? Will your floors really shine, or will you still need to break out the soap and water?

First, it is probably a good idea to understand how these steam mops work. Although there are some differences in the way they operate, many of their features are the same. They are corded units that use electricity to heat water. The base of the mops are covered with reusable, and generally machine washable, pads. By pushing on the handle or pulling on the trigger, steam is released into these pads. These pads, Bissel Steam Mop with the help of the steam, pick up dirt as they are passed across flooring surfaces.

Contrary to popular belief, basic cleaning with steam mops generally will not sanitize flooring surfaces. To sanitize, the mop head must be left in place for a certain amount of time. For example, the Bissell 1867 instructs users to leave the unit in place approximately fifteen seconds to sanitize. It would take a long time to sanitize a small area, such as a foyer, and let’s not even discuss how long it would take to do a larger area!

Also, these machines are not vacuum sweepers. Their design does not allow them to pick up dirt particles. The area must be vacuumed or swept prior to using. Sweeping or vacuuming just prior to use will also eliminate wear and tear on the reusable cleaning pads, as well as prevent scratching of flooring surfaces.

Steam mops will ruin unsealed hardwood floors. There have also been reports of damage to no-wax surfaces. Contact the manufacturer of your floors to verify if these types of steam cleaners are safe to use on them. It is a good idea to test a small area to verify that it does not have any adverse effects on your floor’s finish.

Steam mops are the latest gadgets that claim to make cleaning your floor a cinch. But will they really cut your workload, or just leave your floors a wet mess?!"
You've probably seen ads for The Shark or the H2O Mop, two of a growing number of steam mops.
They are the latest innovation in household cleaning that claim to make short work of big messes. But do they?
New Scientific Test
Our partners at Consumer Reports Magazine just tested the Shark and nine other steam mops, including models from Bissell and Oreck.
Testers spilled ketchup, syrup, and mustard, then left it overnight to really set in

Some floors aren't as good for steam mops

As others I do vacuum thoroughly first and I squirt water on the bad spots to soften the dirt before I use the mop.
You might try brushing your cats a lot more often, in a room with the door closed so they don't fly through out the house and maybe wear your hair tied up? I have to brush my cat several times a day to keep her fur free of any loose hairs. She loves to be brushed and begs for it so it's easy. I know some aren't such fans of brushing.

A: Most manufacturers of steam mops, which resemble a cross between a stick vacuum and floor duster, specify that they are safe for hardwood floors sealed with polyurethane.

  • Avatar Nowhere Man In California, do you need a drivers license to drive a gas scooter on public roads and state roads?
    Jul 12, 2011 by Nowhere Man | Posted in Motorcycles

    I'm considering getting a Vespa Scooter. Would I need a motorcycle license or could I just continue using my regular license?

    • To drive a two-wheeled Vespa you are legally required to have a M1 motorcycle license or endorsement on your other license.

      If you equip your Vespa with a sidecar you can ride with just your regular Class-C a … AKA a MOtorized PEDal bicycle) requires a M2 license.
      Jim4wild -- California not have a 50cc limit on any vehicle. All street legal motorized two-tandem-wheel vehicles require either a M1 or an M2 drivers' license.

  • Avatar Raeshawn Is there a sidecar made for a gas scooter?
    Jul 06, 2011 by Raeshawn | Posted in Commuting

    I would like to buy a scooter to have a form of transportation but will also need to be able to carry my toddler-almost two- with me. Is there some way I can get a sidecar attached to the scooter or attach a stroller sidecar? Or anything that I could attach that would safely carry him.

    • Sidecar is not a problem. Problem would be helmet / child seat with a toddler. You would want to check if it would be legal in your State.
