Steam mop reviews

Consumer Reports is the only place to find unbiased, independent steam mop reviews. What would you think about cleaning your floors with no squeegee, no bucket of water, and no commercial cleaning fluids? If that sounds appealing to you, a steam mop, which uses just hot water, might be just the thing. Find out whether a steam mop is a better choice than a traditional mop or not. Looking for special steam mop features like a large reservoir capacity or detachable steam generator? How about a built-in vacuum cleaner or additional cleaning accessories?

Our experts at the Consumer Reports National Testing and Research Center have evaluated several current steam mop models at our on-site testing labs. Our reviews will provide you with recommended steam mop Ratings, where you will find the exact numerical score our experts have assigned to each of the five tested review criteria that make up our steam mop reviews: vinyl-floor cleaning, time steaming, residual water left on floor, convenience, and cord length. We review such major brands as Oreck, Eureka, Shark, Steamboy, Haan, and others.

After reading the steam mop reviews, you can compare models, review our list of the features and specifications, read user reviews, and even submit your own review.
