Bosisto’s scrubs up best in floor cleaner ratings for 2nd year

If there’s an area of your home that usually gets overlooked when it comes to regular cleaning, there’s a good chance it’s the floor. It may be directly under your feet, but how often do you really think about it? We’re all so concerned about benchtops, sinks and kitchen appliances that we often forget about one of the greatest harbourers of dirt and bacteria – the floor! Where do you think that dropped food and mud from your shoes end up? Clean floors are essential to a healthy home, especially if you have young ones that crawl around. So, which floor cleaners will be the best bet for maintaining a clean and healthy floor? Our customer satisfaction ratings can offer a helpful guide.

This year, we surveyed more than 1,300 consumers across Australia for their feedback on the floor cleaners they have purchased and used in the last 12 months. Respondents rated brands on effectiveness, ease of use, smell, packaging design, environmental friendliness, value for money, and overall customer satisfaction. Those that received the minimum required survey sample of 30 responses are featured in our results.
