Hoover Steam Mops Review
As a leading brand for vacuum cleaners, Hoover also provides a line of steam mops. From basic models that cover the essentials to multi-functional designs that can clean floors as well as steam your clothes, Hoover has you covered with a wide range of steam mops reviewed below.
Hoover Steam Mops
Hoover claims its steam mops use lightweight material, giving you ease of use. But what makes Hoover’s steam mops really stand out is its Twin Tank technology that separates the cleaning detergent tank from the water tank, allowing you to choose to use just water or both. There are currently seven steam mops from Hoover, including:
- Hoover Dual Steam Plus Steam Mop
- Hoover Heritage 5630 Vibrating Steam Mop
- Hoover Enhanced Clean Disinfecting Steam Mop
- Hoover TwinTank Multi-Steamer
- Hoover Steamy Wonder 3630 Steam Mop
- Hoover Expert Dry Multi-Steam Cleaner
- Hoover FloorMate SteamScrub Touch Steam Mop
Let’s jump into the specs and features of each one to offer some guidance as to which might be best for your household needs and budget.
Hoover Dual Steam Plus Steam Mop
This model is designed for carpet and hard floors. It is equipped with a dual tank system that separates detergent from the water tank. It also includes 14 specialised accessories to cover a number of cleaning needs. If you are looking for a steam mop that covers a range of tasks, you may like to keep this one in mind.
Its floor-head is designed with 25 steam holes for steam distribution and has the ability to swivel for cleaning around and under furniture. It has a trigger steam control to help clean the hard-to-remove stains and as you are most likely to have to take the steam mop around the house, Hoover claims its Dual Steam Plus model is lightweight for easy manoeuvrability. It comes with a two year warranty.
Hoover Heritage 5630 Vibrating Steam Mop
For a steam mop with more efficiency compared to the previous model, the Hoover Heritage has a built in Ultrasonic vibration system to do the movement for you. You may find this handy to help reduce the amount of back and forth moments but you may still need to scrub hard for any tough stains. Its water tank pops out for refilling and all controls are labelled for ease of use.
There are three variable steam settings – ‘dust’ for light cleaning, ‘mop’ for moderate cleaning and ‘scrub’ for a powerful clean – that Heritage 5630 model is equipped with. It is designed with a triangular head for cleaning along edges and corners. Similarly to the above steam mop, this model is claimed to be designed with lightweight material to make it easy to use and transport. It also folds in for compact storage. There is a two year warranty on this model.

Are Hoover steam mops worth the money?
With prices sitting fairly high for steam mops compared to traditional mops, you can expect to pay well over $100 for a Hoover, but you may be lucky and score one on special. While steam mops aim to be a chemical free cleaning solution, an option that Hoover steam mops provide for that price is a dual tank system. It’s a handy feature especially if you want an extra boost to the steam cleaning process by using a floor detergent.
Whether you’re looking for a basic design or multiple functionalities, Hoover gives you plenty of choice with its extensive range. The Hoover Expert Dry model packs in more than 20 different attachments and combined with vertical and horizontal functionality, it gives you a cleaning solution for almost any mess. For something a little simpler, the Hoover Steamy Wonder will get your wondering why you didn’t look into steam mops earlier. Consumers who buy steam mops generally never look back.
