Euroflex Steam Mops Review
There’s nothing better than a clean home with spotless floors free from stubborn dirt stains and bad odours that have built up over time. But does Euroflex offer the best steam mop deal for you?
If you’re tired of lugging around a heavy and bulky mop, the brand’s range of portable and lightweight Monster Steam Cleaners might be the answer. The boiler contained in each Euroflex steam mop is also said to generate ‘hotter, drier steam’ to help absorb dirt more easily. Compared to ordinary floor mops and ‘wet steam’ mops, the brand’s range of floor steamers is similarly claimed to produce drier steam capable of cleaning all types of hard sealed floors as well as water sensitive timber and floor boards.
But it’s the Monster Hot Mop which apparently makes Euroflex shine. The exothermic mop is stated to use unique technology which combines a hot plate base, high quality microfibre pad and 100ml of water to create the ‘perfect balance of heat and moisture’ needed to remove dirt and grime.
To help you decide which steam mops cleans up best, we’ve listed all the products currently available from Euroflex and their prices.
Euroflex Monster Hot Mop
Is your house giving you a dirty look with its old stained floors? The Euroflex Monster Hot Mop contains what the brand terms ‘Exothermic Technology’ to ensure floors appear ‘clean, renewed and sanitised’. The technology is said to dissolve dirt and grime by creating a design which combines a hot plate base, 100ml of water and microfiber pad.
The floor mop can transition between two different modes. It can either be used as a floor duster to do a quick sweep in ‘cold’ mode, or perform a deep clean in ‘hot’ mode. To help you reach all the nooks and crannies, the floor mop features a swivel head to clean hard-to-reach areas blocked by fixtures and furniture. Euroflex also claims its Monster Hot Mop allows floors to dry quickly to avoid streaking.
The ‘MC1X5’ model is also one of the lighter models in the product range, weighing less than 1.5kg.

It said to provide ‘powerful domestic-grade steam pressure’ and can clean without the use of chemicals.
The Euroflex ‘SC60-R’ has double the heating time of the brand’s steam mops, with the model taking between six and seven minutes before being ready for use. But the product is claimed to last between 35 and 40 minutes, and offers 1450W boiling power and a 1200ml water capacity.
