I've NEVER Cleaned My Floors...

Yeah, that title expresses truth about Steph's floor. Yes, she's spot cleaned because she is not a total cavewoman, but mopping the entire floor has never been on her to-do list! The greyhound living at Steph's house pushed the need for daily cleaning because shed and drool happens!
Hoover sent us four different ONEPWR cleaning tools recently. We used three in a previous video, but felt the ONEPWR floor cleaner warranted its own closer look video. The floor cleaner, we felt, would be the perfect tool to help Steph manage the care and cleaning of her floors.
Take a look at this cordless cleaning machine.
This is it! The tool comes with a floor tray that is used to clean the roller and to hold them vertical as they dry. With the tray, there is no water leakage onto the floor after using the machine. I know this is a great feature as I've experienced the dreaded "after cleaning puddle" with my old corded machine. With that machine, I'd have to remember to put something down for it to sit on while it dried. Hoover has designed that problem OUT of this machine!
After the floors are cleaned, the machine is put on the rinse and storage tray, water is poured into the tray using that cup on the side, and the machine is left to run for 15 seconds. This action cleans the roller making it ready for the next time. It is extremely easy to remove from the machine. You don't have to remember the steps in the process as Hoover has smartly added a label to the back of this machine with all the info you need.
Personally, I have two previous versions of corded FloorMates. I've liked them both, that's why I was personally very excited about this version. The only thing I really didn't like about them was the cord. I know it's a simple thing, but I found it frustrating not to be able to finish the floors without having to replug the cord closer to where I was working. Plus, this version is way lighter which is a consideration for older consumers.

I find the “brushroll” floor washers to be even better as a complement to the corded floormate units. The corded floormate puts down more water than the onepwr floormate jet (which in turn puts down more than the bissell crosswave), and I find that to be better for large dirt. If people track sand or similar into the house, sometimes the onepwr jet leaves enough solution behind that it can leave a bit of graininess behind. I think this is a function of wetting the sand before it has a chance to be sucked up, coupled with the lower suction of a cordless unit versus a corded unit. Even so, the corded crosswave also has the same issue, to a lesser extent, that it can leave behind grains on heavily sandy/soil-y floors. I have not had the same problem with the corded floormate, probably because it has the suction power and the suction is ahead of the wetting, so it has a chance to vacuum up the grains before getting them wet.
