Steam mops are designed to make it easier to clean and sanitize hard floors. Unlike regular mops that require cleaning chemicals like bleach, a steam mop uses the heat from steam to moisten the steam mop replaceable pad. The heat from the steam vapor through the pad then lifts the dirt and grime off the floor effectively, whilst disinfecting your floors with high-temperature steam. Steam mops do all without the need for potentially hazardous chemicals, so there are multiple benefits.
Steam mops are designed for floors of sealed wood, grout, ceramic tiles or linoleum. We recommend that you always check with your floor manufacturer to ensure that your floor is suitable for steam mopping.

What Factors Should You Consider When Buying a Steam Mop on Black Friday?
- Steam control – different types of floors require different heat settings, for reasons such as sanitization and deep cleaning. It’s very useful – and often necessary to clean your floor properly – that your steam mop has adjustable heat control.
- Mop head Manoeuvrability – a wide-angle swivel mop head makes it much easier to reach those hard to clean areas so you can clean all the nooks and crannies.
- Continuous steam mop – a mop with continuous steam is generally easier to mop with than one that has to be pumped.
- Removable water tank – having a removable water tank makes filling up and emptying the tank much easier, so in terms of ease of use, this is a must-have.
- Heating time – most steam mops should heat up in under a minute, so that’s really what you should be looking for. You have floors to mop, you don’t want to be waiting around!
- Ready light indicator – this is convenient as it helps you know when the steam mop is ready to use.
- Empty light indicator – indicates when the tank is empty.
- Multi-purpose – a lot of steam mops are only designed to be used on hard floors, but there are some models and attachments which allow the cleaning of carpets, couches and other surfaces.
