Hardwood Floors and Steam Cleaning are a Great Combination
Posted on June 30 2020
Hardwood floors can be tricky to take care of. Everyone wants them clean and shining. If you have ever used a mop on hardwood flooring you know that it can leave streaks behind and the mop needs to be rid of almost all moisture in it or the water can damage the floors. I decided to try using my Rocket Electric Mop steam cleaner as a hardwood steam cleaner. In Canada , not many people know that it is okay to use a hardwood steam cleaner.
The Rocket Electric Mop steam cleaner comes with extension tubes and a floor brush with cloths that attach to the floor brush to protect the finish on the hardwood. The floor brush is attached to the extension tubes using the adapter that is in the onboard tool caddy. To attach the floor cloth, you use the clips on either side of the floor brush to secure it in place. Hardwood steam cleaning does require having several cloths on hand. As the cloth picks up the dirt and gets wet with steam you will need to change out the floor brush cloths. You can use any cloths that you have at home that fit; I use hand towels and old tea towels.
The Rocket Electric Mop is portable and on wheels so moving it along the floor is no effort at all. I just move the floor brush along the floor, back and forth and keep an eye on how wet the cloth is. As soon as I see moisture I change the cloth on the floor brush and keep going. My hardwood steam cleaning removes all dirt, sticky messes, dog foot prints and leave my floor shining and sanitized killing 99.9% of germs and bacteria, with no chemical residue left behind.
The Rocket Electric Mop is great for:
- Scuff marks
- Kitchen messes
- Muddy footprints
- Ground-in dirt
- Sticky liquids
- Pet messes and more
