Who wouldn’t love a vacuum that not only cleans but also washes and dries your hardwood floors? Back that fantastic design with the Hoover name and you’ve got a winning combination by any measure. This Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub with Bonus Hard Floor Wipes, FH40010B includes a powerful bagless vacuum along with a washing and drying system to take care of your cleaning jobs all with one machine.

With this Hoover FloorMate cleaner, you can get rid of your broom, ditch the dreaded mop and bucket and say goodbye to the knee pads and scrubbers that kept you on your knees for the sake of a clean hardwood floor. Sealed hardwood floors, tile floors, and vinyl floors can all be truly cleaned without the use of steam or mopping gimmicks.

The ups and downs of this vacuum cleaner are detailed here:

  • Cleaning path is impressive 13” in width
  • Beltless design ensures no sudden stoppage due to belt breaking
  • Includes dual tanks for separating clean and dirty water

  • Requires disposable hard surface wipes
  • 1 year limited warranty

This 3-in-one Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub with Bonus Hard Floor Wipes has many features that set it above the rest. Its removable nozzles and brushes are easy to clean and maintain, rinsing clean under running water. The foldable handle makes it simple to slot into limited storage spaces. It is a lightweight machine, weighing in at only 16 pounds with a nozzle width of 13 inches.

The counter-rotating SpinScrub Brushes are designed for cleaning tough messes while gently removing dirt from sealed wood, vinyl, grout and tile floors. Switching between the different modes – vacuum, wash and dry – is as simple as turning a dial. The large, easy-to-read knob is located at the base of the handle for easy access.

The water tank system consists of two separate receptacles that keep the clean water and dirty water separate. So the threat of dirty water finding its way back to your floors is not an issue. The one year limited warranty is disappointing but seems to be gaining currency in the industry.


Any cleaning unit that offers a multifaceted approach to cleaning is bound to draw the attention of anyone looking to make their cleaning chores easier and less time-consuming. This Hoover FloorMate SpinScrub vacuum provides the services of a standard vacuum plus the cleaning power of a mop and bucket and alleviates the drying that can take hours. With the backing of the Hoover name, it is a given that anyone searching for a way to throw away their traditional mop and bucket will take a look at Hoover’s offering. Sturdy, reliable, compact and easy to use: it doesn’t get much better than this.
