Over the years I have tried everything to get my hardwood floors clean and shiny.

I’ve used wet swiffers. I’ve done the hot water and tide “hack”. I’ve done water and vinegar at the suggestion of my hardwood floor installer. I’ve tried the Method Almond floor cleaning solution.

I finally settled on the Bona hardwood floor cleaner with a microfiber mop and was pretty happy that my floors looked clean.

Except they weren’t.

When I would go to wipe something up off the floor with a wet paper towel, it was obvious my floors were actually filthy. And we don’t wear shoes in the house so it was quite horrifying how dirty they were, even immediately after they just been washed!

After some research, I decided to try a vacuum mop that I had seen on Instagram. I thought it was gimmicky and that it might be good to sucking up wet cereal or the mess my toddler made after dinner – surely I’d still have to wash my floors right after.

Well, let me tell you. This hardwood floor mop and vacuum is single-handedly the best purchase I’ve made this year. My floors now pass the wet paper towel test with flying colors.

Seeing is believing! Watch the mop in action in my Instagram video.

This vacuum is a workhorse. It sucks up all the sticky rice and bits of dinner that my toddler drops to the floor every night, all while deodorizing and cleaning my floors to a perfect shine.

The dirt that I empty down the drain afterwards is truly disgusting, but SO satisfying!

This thing can handle pretty much any mess – from regular after-dinner cleanup, to spilled yogurt and cereal. I’ve even used it to clean throw up!!

The vacuum is self-propelling AND self-cleaning. The self-cleaning feature is definitely needed, because if you don’t do that step after each use, it starts to stink badly.

Final Thoughts

If you’ve been struggling to get your hardwood floors truly clean, or want something that makes cleaning the floors after dinner way less of a chore, then you’re going to want to try this vacuum mop. It’s not cheap, but it has been worth every penny for me.

Let me know if you have any questions about it and I’ll be happy to help!
