A steamy giveaway!

Hello! I have some FUN for you today – this post is all about cleaning the floors!! WHOOOOO! I mean, really. Is there anything more exciting?

Just CALM DOWN. I know it’s awesome. (The real awesome comes later, hang in there.)

I’ve mentioned before that our previous floors were laminate. The fridge died, leaked water all over, and the laminate was toast. Fast forward a couple months later and a (very) helpful insurance check, and we ended up with hardwood floors.

Have I mentioned how much I love them? If I could hug floors, I would these. (I may have tried. It was not pretty.)

Our laminate floors were super shiny and IMPOSSIBLE to keep clean. I cannot express to you the agony of the cleaning (using a floor cleaner and one of those microfiber mops – which was not easy to push around) for a good hour, then not two minutes later someone would walk through in bare feet and I would be in a corner rocking and mumbling something about “floors…clean…help.”

It was intense. :)

After our new floors were installed I asked the Floor Guy how to clean them, and he recommended a steam mop. That made me giddy, cause the fine folks at Black and Decker had sent already me one to check out:

black and decker steam mop

I actually got it before the floor debacle and tried it on the laminate and it cleaned them well, but did leave streaks. But ever.y.thing. I used left streaks – I found out later it was because of the build up of all of the cleaners I’ve used on them over the years. Nothing would clean them up.

I’m THRILLED to say the steam mop did stellar work on the new floors. I’m in heaven. No more mumbling.

I told you before that the new floors don’t show anything. We go in and out of this back door multiple times a day and bring in dirt, water and dust. I hadn’t cleaned our floors in over a week week, and this section is the worst it got:

Can’t see it? I know. Because they rock my world.

Here’s a closer look:

I know. Still not bad. Hate me.

One of the many things I love about this steam mop is that it’s ready to go in seconds – you just grab one of the (THREE!) pads they provide:

Just lay it face down on the floor and place the mop on top:

The steam mop has three different settings:

I of course picked the wood option, which I’ve noticed seems to “steam” the least of them – which is a good thing when dealing with wood.

I put water and just a bit of vinegar in the mop and then push it around a bit. It dries almost immediately – I mean supa fast:

finished on site hardwoods

OK, that may be the most underwhelming before and after of all time, cause the before looked pretty good.

 

I know. Rocks my world.

This is the area we walk through the most every day, and you can see there are NO STREAKS!:

Holy cats. Hallelujah.

Oh. happy. day.

Best part? It takes less than ten minutes to clean all of the floors in the family room and kitchen. That took at least an hour (and some sweat) before.

We get sun all day in the back of our house, and before it was like a big huge pointy finger, highlighting all of the smudges and dirt and footprints.

Now, it’s just…(pretty) floors:

jacobean stain hardwood floors

I also use the steam mop on our vinyl, tile and the peel and stick floors in the laundry room – every type of flooring cleans up great!

The AWESOME folks at Black and Decker are offering one of these beauties to one of you as well!:

  21. I can't say they're hard to keep clean, because they're all hardwood throughout, but my absolute MUST clean thing is FLOORS! I walk around barefoot all the time and can't stand any grit or stickiness on my floors. Some people can't live with dishes in the sink. For me it's dirty floors.

  25. My dining room is the hardest to keep clean. I have a 2 year old and I babysit a 1 year old and a 3 year old. They spill and drop everything! Especially the 1 year old. His favorite thing to do is turn his plate upside down and smear the food everywhere so most of it goes on the floor. Lovely.

  77. I have a huge area of tile in my house and while I think everywhere in my house is hard to keep clean (wink wink) truly the dining/kitchen is the worst.

Would so love one of these. kslkatie@msn.com

  113. I have hardwood floors throughout the main area of my open great room floor plan....so the hardest spot to keep clean with my 2 year old around is, ALL OF IT!

    I'm really curious to know how your floors look after you have washed the steam pads a few times. If I don't wash them separately with less detergent and rinse several times extra to get all remaining soap out(like I would for my cloth diapers!) I get the same build up on the floors that I do with regular cleaners. Having to have a special wash cycle for my steam mop pads has outweighed the great effect they give in the short term.

    The hardest part for me to keep clean is all of it since I have wood and tile throughout.

    I also have two kids who like to eat as they walk and crazily enough, the food doesn't always find that big hole in the front of their faces...ahem...so I find dried sucker juice, caked-on, crummy delights everywhere. Did I say everywhere??

  131. Hi there! The hardest spot to clean in the house would be the area where my 3 boys, ages 6, 9 and 11 forget to use all the good hygiene knowledge I have bestowed upon them. I am , of course, talking about the bathroom. I can't get one of the primary colors off the floor ( I will let you guess which one) and the linoleum floor is grainy and textured so it traps all the dirt. As a result it never looks clean even if I scrub until the cows come home! I'd love to steam away my shame! Rachel aka Notnina at aol dot com

  136. The tile kitchen floor is the hardest to clean. The grout is just awful to scrub clean. I have tried everything! From the Floormate, to scrubbing on my hands and knees. I hope the steamer does the job. This would be wonderful because I have both tile and wood floors.

    ReplyDelete
  137. As well as the laminate flooring in the entry way, dining room and kitchen, that streak from the sun shine, hardest by the slider. We have tile in the bathrooms.

  139. Hi there! The hardest spot to clean in the house would be the area where my 3 boys, ages 6, 9 and 11 forget to use all the good hygiene knowledge I have bestowed upon them. I am , of course, talking about the bathroom. I can't get one of the primary colors off the floor ( I will let you guess which one) and the linoleum floor is grainy and textured so it traps all the dirt. As a result it never looks clean even if i scrub until the cows come home!I'd love to steam away my shame! I did click like on the B and D page! Rachel aka Notnina at aol dot com

  142. I have been eyeing these for SUCH a long time! My linoleum is impossible to keep clean... unless I spend a lot of time on my hands and knees :) I would LOVE one of these!

  145. The worst thing to keep clean in our house is the laundry room (the entry into the kitchen).

    Q. though...I was under the impression you could not use steam mops on wood floors?? We're getting engineered hardwoods. Thanks!

  147. Under my kitchen table is definitely that hardest place to keep clean. I am moving into a new house next week and would LOVE to try this on my new hardwood floors.

  149. The hardest spot to keep clean is the pathway from the garage into the laundry room that leads to the kitchen. Where does it all come from?! :)

  151. The most difficult area for me to keep clean or to clean is the kitchen area since it is the center of the house, the dogs have the food and water bowls in this area and of course just the cooking.

  154. Our entry way is THE most impossible floor to keep clean. It's medium-dark laminate, but get's tons of traffic. A close second is the kitchen/dining area... also laminate, but very blonde. I've considered getting a steam mop MANY times, but wasn't sure it was worth the investment for our laminate. lucasandtiffany(at)att(dot)net

  155. Oh my! We're moving into a new house in December and the entire thing needs cleaning. The dining room floor is a mess, and I'm not looking forward to that!

    ReplyDelete
  156. Oh lordy it's the front door (always) and the back door (in the summer)...pine needles, dirt, who-knows-what-else those little feet track in. This mop would be in heaven (and so would I)!

  157. My Kitchen is the worst. Sticky little monkey paws (kids ages 1 1/2, 4, and 6)constantly dropping something sticky, dirty shoes, trapesing across the sticky parts..its a constant job..would love to win this and have a Calgon moment. :)

  163. My wood floors are my nemesis. I haaaate cleaning them and do it infrequently because we have a lot of woods floors. But have heard that I can't use steam on them? So reading this gives me hope and I'd looove to win this!

  165. The hardest spot in my house is the bathroom floor where all the hairspray has landed and then everyone walked on. I can't get it clean.

    ReplyDelete
  166. This would be amazing!
    My kitchen and the bathroom would be where I would use this the most.

  167. The HARDEST spot in my house to keep clean is the path from the back door through the dining room to the bedroom. My hubby works in construction and CONSTANTLY tracks in dirt, dust, and mud when he comes home in the evenings on his way to get in the shower. Not to mention 2 dogs who love to play outside tracking in muddy wet paw prints when they come inside. We had laminate, but are remodeling the kitchen and will be getting hardwood floors...I can't wait! :D smhughes(at)tds(dot)net
