A Review of the Vax Floormate Cordless Hard Floor Cleaner

Maybe it's the virgo in me - the perfectionist, that just loves things to be neat, tidy and clean or maybe it's just part of my build-up. But there's something that triggers a little rush of child-like excitement whenever I get a new cleaning toy or gadget to play with. And so when Vax sent me their new and shiny cordless hard floor cleaner, I did feel a little like Christmas may have arrived early for me.

Vax Floormate Cordless Hard Floor Cleaner Review

The floormate cordless hard floor cleaner has evolved from Vax's new range of cordless products (you may have seen their pretty great looking cordless hoover being advertised on the television at the moment!). The floormate cordless is advertised as an innovative hard floor cleaner that uses the power of detergent and SpinScrub technology to leave surfaces effortlessly and hygienically clean.

As well as the SpinScrub technology, effective for dirt and stain removal, it uses a combination of powerful suction and a fast acting squeegee to leave surfaces dry seconds after you've washed them. It's cordless so there's no annoying wires to contend with, instead it's powered by a LithiumLife battery which allows power for up to 30 minutes. There's also the twin tank feature on the floormate hard floor cleaner which separates the clean from the dirty water to keep things more hygienic. The floormate is lightweight and incredibly easy to push back and forward (even at 40 weeks pregnant!) and there's a particularly great feature in that the handle folds down after use for easy and better storage.

Nothing at all is complicated about the Vax hard floor cleaner - the instructions aren't long winded or complicated, they're simple to read and perfectly easy to understand (even for someone like me who really cannot stand to follow instructions!). The machine comes with 250ml floor 2 floor detergent, the battery charger, a hard floor washer and of course the instruction booklet, as well as a two year guarantee!

I was left impressed by the Vax Floormate after using it on my tiled kitchen floor, in fact more so than I had expected. The lithium battery did run out before I was able to finish completely, but I have quite a large kitchen with a lot of floor to cover and so I was prepared for and had expected that on first use it would require more than one charge of the battery. I really do think it's personal preference when it comes to cordless products, yes they run out of charge after what can sometimes seem like a short while but the fact that cordless products are just that - cordless, really does make up for it in my mind. I personally have no issue with putting the battery back on charge and carrying on later or another day in exchange for not having to worry about wires. I also think that once the kitchen's had a proper deep clean, it's likely that there won't be the same requirement for it to be in use it for so long the next time anyway.

Now for my size kitchen floor space I did need to refill the water quite a few times, which meant more of the solution, which then ultimately could end up costing me quite a bit of money if I have to go through it too quickly. But perhaps for those with smaller spaces to clean this wouldn't be such or even an issue at all. 

All in all, the Vax Floormate Cordless Hard Floor Cleaner is a product that I'm very happy with and that I will be using regularly. It picked up an impressive amount of dirt off of my floor, see above. (perhaps shamefully, I had three of those in my half an hour charge!). The greatest thing about the Floormate is that it picks up the dirty water seconds after you've cleaned, where as cleaning products such as mops and some other products will just leave that dirty water on your floors to dry.. which to me sort of defeats the entire point of going about cleaning the floors in the first place. 

The Vax Floormate Cordless Hard Floor Cleaner is available from vax.co.uk for £179.99 (was £1999.99 - save £20.00). All opinions expressed in this review are, as always, entirely my own.

  2. I'd love a cordless hoover. I have a townhouse so it would be so much easier with 3 floors xx

  3. This is some kind of a very cool machine to use for cleaning in our house, but I wonder if how much money we have to spend for this kind of machine?. Well, it seems that this could be very helpful because we don't need to perform a manual cleaning, instead we only use this cordless cleaner for efficient ways of cleaning.
