Steam cleaner mop

Thinking of buying a steam cleaner mop for use on tiled floors.
Whole house in france has tiles and fed up with traditional mop and bucket, also floors take ages to dry.

Has anyone had any experience of these appliances at all?
Any recommendations? Makes to avoid etc etc.

Thanks for any help.

Steam Cleaner mop

I love my steam cleaner mop, does the floors a treat.

I got mine from Lakeland and its great.

I did try a Bissell first but sent it back, it wasnt lightweight and it was faulty.

The Lakeland one is nice and light and does what it says on the tin.

I've got a Bissell Steam Mop Max and I'm happy with it.
Easy to use, heats up quickly and cleans the tiles really well.
We don't have Lakeland here in Oz, so don't know about their mops, but I think the Bissell is better than the Kenwood ones that were available at the time.
Pleased I bought it as our new house is mostly tiles with carpet only in the bedroom and a rug in the lounge.

My colleague swears by their Vax model. She has both ceramic tiles & hardwood flooring - I have the same so have also been considering a purchase, but not yet made the leap although I intend to, & I asked her all the same Qs about whether it was quick, effective, didn't soak the floor or leave condensation, & she's convinced me. I am presently in the dithering stage but aim to complete any day soon - perhaps over Easter ...

steam cleaner

Only this week I bought a steam cleaner mop from Lakeland. Cost £60 and worth every penny. Did kitchen, utility, bathroom, en-suite and conservatory in record time. floors are a combination of tiles and tough vinyl and all came up sparkling and clean. Would certainly recommend it.

I'm thinking of getting one of these, saw the video on their website and it looks good. How many pads come with the mop? and is one pad enough to clean the whole floor or do you need to change it? I suppose maybe it depends on how dirty the floor is and sorry just one more question, how long do the pads last before you need to buy replacements?

You get 3 pads with the machine. I hand washed mine after the first big floor clean and air dried it which was one of the recommendations. Very easy to wash. I think they will last for quite a long time, I am not planning to buy any more for a while.

Thanks to you all for your comments on the steam mops.
All very helpful.
Looks like it could be the Lakeland one for me, all I need now is suggestions on how to get it to France!!!
Can't see me getting it on a Ryanair flight as hand luggage!!

Lakeland mop

Thanks Bens Gran for your reply.
Just need to convince the OH that it would be a good investment and that I really need one as all I have now is a bucket. I would be quite happy to have one for my birthday. That would solve his problem and mine in just one trip to the shops :o)

Bucket vs steam mop

You know Violeteyes, if you get your OH doing the job with the bucket (maybe you're ill or something) you'll get that steam mop without having to convince him. In my experience, men love to find (quick) solutions to jobs they have to do and if it involves something gadgety (not sure that gadgety is a word) the more they like it and you may find that you don't have some particular job any more - mind you, that bit only happens once in a blue moon!

steam mop v bucket

Liz it was easy, I just had to let him think about it for a while and he agreed, he said if I need it I can have it. But I'm not sure any more if it's what I really want. I think I'm going to buy a new mop instead.
With the money he's saving I can now buy myself 2 pairs of shoes instead of 1 pair. That's fair isn't it :o)
