- I love this steamer! Great for laminate floors
This little steamer has made my life so much easier. You will never mop again. It is simple to use and works great. I will never use anything else to clean my laminate wood floors. I vacuum with my hard surface vacuum and then clean them with the steamboy. My entire first floor is wood and tile about 2000 sq ft and it only takes 30 minutes to clean the entire floor. The only thing I would change is the cord needs to be longer and the pad could be easier to put on the steamer. I recomend this to everyone.
- Easy & Gets the Dirt Up
We have 7 large dogs with plenty of dirt so I bought this steam cleaner to be gentle on our wood floors. It did a great job and the wood floors are clean with a shine -- it also gets the dirt up amazingly from the tile floors. My husband loves to use it also because it is fun -- you feel like you are doing "ironing". It is lightweight and compact.
- Takes time......but cleans well
I have laminated and travertine flooring, about 1500 sq feet. I mop daily and it does a great job. I am not sure how it would do on floors that are only cleaned once a week or are heavy with soil or dirt. You would have to change the pad often or rinse the one out. The cord is too short and I have to keep unplugging it and moving it. I had to put an extension cord on it to expedite the cleaning time. My second problem is after steaming a 5x3 foot area there is a definate lack of steam, so I have to prop it up and wait for the steam to build up. It does not have 30 minutes continuous steam. You can tell the steam is not hot because of the sound and there is more water on the floor thus taking longer to dry. I use distilled water and noticed that it works a little better if I do not let the water lever go below the halfway mark. The spongy like filter is encased in hard plastic casing. I am not sure what would happen after a couple of weeks. Would it develope a smell? You cannot get to it to air it out and squeeze it to release any excess water. The reason for the purchase of this product was to expedited my daily cleaning. Unforunately, it takes longer with this mop. The positive side it that it does clean well for me. But I do not have the time to utilize it.
- glad to have it
I purchased this steamer this week and have used it twice. Have ceramic tile floors throughout and have noticed the white floors "brightened" with each use. Basically, I really like this mop, but wish the cord was longer and that the pads were "thicker" I can hear them scrape against the tile as I use it.
- second time is the charm
After reading reviews on several steam mops,I chose Steamboy.It was easy to assemble but when I filled the water tank, I noticed water leaked out for a few seconds when I turned the tank over to place it in the machine.As instructed, for first time use,I held the trigger in to allow the steam to build up.The pad became soaked,there was very little steam and I found I was just mopping the floor with warm water,which I had to wipe up with a large towel.In the shipping box was a package of 3 gaskets:2small and 1 tiny.The next day,I placed the tiny gasket over the screw where the water tank connects to the machine-then I let the machine warm up for at least 10 minutes.This time I gently squeezed the trigger once or twice and the steam started rolling.My linoleum floors are spotless and look like they've just been waxed.Once you get the hang of it, Steamboy gets easier to use.I believe I'm going to enjoy using this mop very much-I love the way my floors look and how clean they feel on bare feet!
- My Father In Law Noticed!
What can I say but no chemicals, easy cleanup, environmentally and Allergy friendly...and Big Frank noticed how clean my floors were! With pride, I showed it to a friend, and she bought one on the internet while still at my house!

Reliable Steamboy T1 Floormop
I absolutely love this vapor steam cleaner. It is light and very easy to use. We have sealed hardwood floors, the Steamboy keeps me from having to get down on my hands and knees to scrub the floor. It has also done wonders on the grout between the tiles in our bathrooms. The superheated steam not only helps to remove stains and dirt from my floors but it also sanitizes by killing harmful germs and bacteria that thrive in areas like kitchens and bathrooms. Because it uses steam, it does a much better job than a regular mop, without harsh or toxic chemicals.
Like many steam mops, the Steamboy does leave some moisture behind, but if the relative humidity is low enough, it will quickly evaporate. Generally, in just a few minutes, the floors are dry again. I would suggest getting some extra replacement cloths since you will likely want to change the cloth as you move from room to room. In terms of the included mop cloths, I prefer the drawstring microfiber clothes that come with this model over microfiber pads that come with the newer 200CU and T3 models. First, the drawstring cloths that come standard are more absorbent. Second, I like the drawstring as opposed to the velcro pads for versatility. The drawstring cloths will work on the other models, whereas the pads with velcro will not work with the T1.
As a steam mop devoted to cleaning smooth flooring, the T1 Steamboy does the trick. It is economical and easy to use, and because it uses a flash-heating style system to create the steam, it's ready to clean in seconds, a fraction of the time of comparable steam mops. For sealed hardwood, laminate, tile and linoleum it shines, but if you need something more versatile or durable, you may want to consider a canister-style vapor steam cleaner.
