Key features


The main reason I’ve been wanting a steam mop is to quickly clean and sanitise our floors. I like to avoid using harsh cleaners.

A part of this is because Patrick is still crawling and I want to keep those cleaners away from him. It’s also because our flooring materials (natural timber, polished concrete, marble and encaustic tiles) cannot be cleaned with most cleaning products.

I love that this machine heats up in less than 30 seconds and is ready to go!

The mop did a great job of cleaning our floors without any cleaning products. It even cleaned the grout in our showers like new.


It can be used as a steam mop as well as a detachable handheld steam cleaner. I’ve been able to use it to clean baby toys, walls, or just about anything else. There are 14 different brush and nozzle attachments so you can find the ideal one to suit your cleaning needs — right down to a window squeegee kit.

Dual tank design

Another great feature is the dual tank design so if you do want to use detergent, you can put that in a separate tank to the water to easily control the level of cleaning product you use.

The design is really functional — loads of steam holes for even steam distribution, swivel head for easy cleaning around furniture, and trigger steam control so you control how much steam to use.

And lastly, a feature I’m really excited about is that this mop suitable on both carpets and hard floors. (People with pets will appreciate this perk!)


You do need to be careful not to use too much detergent with the mop as a build up of cleaning products on your floor can leave streak marks. Personally, I prefer to just use steam to clean the floors as it’s more eco-friendly and achieves great results.

Some people who reviewed the mop said they didn’t find it very intuitive to use. I didn’t have this issue but if you do, it comes with a useful manual and there’s a handy video on the Godfreys website that shows all the features too.

Overall impression

Overall I’m really impressed with this mop — it heats up in no time, comes with loads of great attachments and glides over my floors easily. I love that I can clean our floors more quickly and get better results while also ditching the cleaning products.

I’ve gone on a bit of a cleaning spree since getting this steam mop and happily recommend it to others.

    1. I have just purchased this steam mop as my Karcher has finally died and am trying a new brand. My apartment floor is gloss tiles. After the first use with this mop has left me disappointed as their are streak marks on the tiles. Perhaps if I was given one free I might also react in the positive, but as I had to pay for mine I am disappointed. Sorry Hoover.

      • Hi Julie, that’s unfortunate the steam mop didn’t meet your expectations. I still have mine and love it although my floors are honed polished concrete so streak marks isn’t an issue for me. I often see in cleaning Facebook groups that gloss floor tiles are notoriously hard to clean so hopefully you find a solution that works for you 🙂
