When it comes to finding the best steam mop on the market, there is many factors you should consider. I just bought 2 different models, now we have 2 properties and I can’t believe the difference between them, for a $50 difference in cost.
There is more to one of these than performance, because you do not want to be lugging a bulky, hard to store device around the house. At the same time, you also want to find a model that is easy to use, has lots of steam made fast and is reliable. You need a flexible, swivel head that gets into all the corners to clean well, while saving you moving around as much yourself. I took all those factors into consideration while figuring out, what is the best steam mop on the market?
Let’s take a look at some of the more popular appliances on the market today. I’ll wriet more about three good ones, all picked for different reasons, then you can decide which best fits your needs. I have also included some highly rated selections for specific flooring and household needs to save you time looking if the others are not what you are after.
Top-rated best selling steam mops to buy
These are your basic best sellers, but are highly rated too. You will see the Hoover Twin Tank at the top of nearly every flooring category you can think of and we are very impressed with ours.
It is great, very versaile and easy to manoeuver if you have dining chairs to go around and lots of furniture legs. Also, with the second tank full of the Hoover cleaning fluid, we were able to clean a disasterous textured white lino kitchen floor in just minutes, instead of the usual 1 hour or more on hands and knees with a brush and industrial cleaner. Maybe it will get done more often now!
Haan Slim & Light Floor Sanitizer and Vapor Steamer
This slim and sleek unit can fit into spaces where most others cannot, which is why it got such high ratings on Amazon.com, 4 and a half stars from nearly 300 reviewers.
Not only is it easy to store, easy to use, but it kills 99.9% of germs on the floor, which is very important.
It uses no chemicals, it is easy to clean, and it starts up very quickly. The average startup time is 3 minutes.
SteamFast SF-142 Multi-Surface
The SteamFast SF-142 Multi Surface is top rated and ideal due to the fact that it can be used on all types of hard floors including tile, marble, linoleum, and sealed hardwood, but can also be used for low pile carpeting, which not many steam mops can. So whether you are cleaning the bathroom and kitchen tile or the hardwood or laminate in the living areas, this mop should suit you to a tee.
It is easy to use, it is ready to go in minutes. It also comes with the fast absorbing Microfiber Cloths to ensure your home dries quickly. When you are done it can be quickly and easily stored away.

When it comes to appliances, the Dirt Devil brand is a trusted and proven brand. This cost efficient appliance offers a steady cleaning power that it is ready to go in only 30 seconds, which is great if you have a big house and need to do multiple tank fills with water.
Not only that, but the continuous stream, distributes evenly across the entire pad surface, which reduces streaks and smears. With the pivoting V shaped head you will be able to get into all the tight spots and corners of your home.
The contoured loop grip handle makes it easy to use, and the sleek design makes it easy to store. Along with a 1 year warranty, you cannot go wrong with this steam cleaning appliance. It is a basic economy model less than $50, sometimes reviewers are harsh on the budget mop.
