The Best Cordless Steam Mops

I have tried lots of steam mops that work well at cleaning tiles, wood floors, terra-cotta, ceramic and other surfaces. The results of my experiments quickened interest in my readers. Some of them asked me to test cordless steam mops to determine the best one while others requested me to explain the way they work.

Under a steam jet, there is a microfiber pad that removes dirt from a surface. Steam mops usually come with one or two water tanks to release dry steam.

The temperature of the heated water is about 120-200°C. To moisten a cloth with steam, you have to push a trigger. Unlike regular mops, a steam one doesn’t leave any residue.

The hot heat released by mops kills up to 99% of germs. Except for disinfecting floors, the devices maintain the cleanliness of floors removing stains and dust.

There are some models that will even leave two-sided ones behind. They come with a flip head that allows for cleaning two times more before you have to replace a pad or cloth. For hard floors such as laminates and wood floors, use soft pads. To remove stuck-on dirt, apply a pad with inbuilt scrubbing strips.

Although steam cleaners deliver perfect cleaning results, be careful when using them as they involve electricity and hot steam.

By the readers’ request, I did a small investigation to determine which cordless steam mops are worth their attention. I’d tested a few brands and found several models that can be considered to be the best ones.  Below there are three steam mops. Although they come in different designs, they work equally well at cleaning different surfaces.
