One would think that when you move into a brand new home – one built especially for you in which no one else has lived – that cleaning wouldn’t be necessary for some time. However, it’s completely opposite; it feels like, since we moved in last week, cleaning is all I’ve been doing. We’ve more visitors now than we’ll probably ever have because everyone wants to see the new house. We, of course, love showing it off, but more foot traffic means that my floors are seeing the dirt and mud that everyone tracks in.
Thanks to winter, we can’t yet set cement sidewalks and stairs, so dirty floors are inevitable. I was given a Steamboy to facilitate my review, though all opinions are my own
I’ve quickly discovered that the amount of wood laminate and tile in our new house far exceeds the possibility of using disposable cleaning pads – it takes me 6 pads each time I clean=$$$. So I needed to find a more realistic and less expensive solution. We’re using the Steamboy Pro 3-in-1 Steam and Scrub Floor Mop. I love the idea of steaming my floors when I mop or scrub because it allows me to get a deep down clean and sanitization of all my flooring surfaces.
Gross. Seriously, I just mopped yesterday and this was the result of using Reliable’s new Steamboy Pro 3-in-1 Steam and Scrub Floor Mop in JUST my dining room and kitchen. That’s dirt that we could be collecting on our socks or bare feet as we walk around, that my daughter could have on her hands as she plays with her cars, or in my teen’s mouth as he frequently practices the “5 Second Rule”.
Reliable’s new Steamboy Pro 3-in-1 Steam and Scrub Floor Mop was recently included in This Old House’s annual Top 100 list of best new home products. That speaks volumes to our family because we’re huge fans of the This Old House television show and magazine. Even though we don’t have an ‘old house’, we love their design ideas and product tests, so we knew we had to try this steam mop.
What We Love About The Steamboy Pro 3-in-1 Steam and Scrub Floor Mop
Because you’re cleaning with steam, you’re getting a deep down clean without using any chemicals. Most cleaning chemicals are either not safe for your floor or harmful for your family, especially if you have babies or toddlers that crawl.
The water tanks holds up to 2.4 cups so you’ll get up to 25 minutes of continuous steam. It’s lightweight, so you can carry it upstairs and down very easily and has a 21′ electrical cord so you can reach all the corners of your house without constantly unplugging. It also has a replaceable water filter (shown above) which is awesome if you live in an area with hard water.
The Steamboy Pro also has a brush attachment for tile and grout and a glider attachment to steam your carpets for freshness and sanitization. Awesome feature for holiday guests!
The only thing we’ve noticed that we don’t like about the Steamboy Pro is the absence of a lock option for the steam button. After a while, my hands got tired from constantly holding the button in. But, so far we love our cleaner floors and being able to keep our tile and grout brand new looking.
