I need a Steam Mop!

Moving from a house that was almost entirely covered in carpeting, to one that is completely covered in either tile or hardwoods can be daunting when you do not have the appropriate tools on hand. In my last home, a quick swiffer ususally did the trick. If  I wanted a deep clean, I would use my microfiber mop. But, after reading a lot of posts in blogland, I am starting to think that maybe a steam mop is what I probably need.

Based on consumer research these two are the best to have:

  • 15 continuous steam jets
  • Adaptors for carpet, hand use
  • Short power cord

  • 3-minute warm-up
  • Tank must cool before refilling

Tied for best is this one :
