Hoover Floormate Cleaning Solution

Posted by happs (My Page) on

I have a Hoover Floormate SpinScrub 500 that I use to clean my ceramic tile floors. The owners manual says to use the Hoover brand "Grout Cleaner" for tile floors and the "Floor to Floor" for wood and laminate floors.

What would happen if I use the "Floor to Floor" cleaner to my tile floor? Sometimes I see competitor products to the "Floor to Floor" for a lot less $.

The only thing not recommended to use in the Hoover Floormates are pine cleaners like Pine-Sol or any with pine ingredients.
I use dollar store liquid all purpose cleaners using the Floormate bottle for measuring and filling the rest of the container with hot water. No need to buy Hoover specific brand cleaners for ceramic tile. HOWEVER be careful about what you use on wood or laminate and make sure whatever brand it says it's safe for wood and laminate

RE: Hoover Floormate Cleaning Solution

The 'floor to floor' cleaner means it is safe for those floors. It is gentle and won't harm tile.

The 'grout cleaner' is harsher and will damage wood or plastic floors.

I use vinegar and water in the machine to do my kitchen floors. It cleans and does not suds up the machine.

Can I use Mr.Clean in my floormate.
