How can the Steam Hard Floor Cleaner replace my broom, mop and bucket? The head of the Steam can sweep and mop your floor at the same time - so you can clean in half the time! The rotating soft bristle sweeper brush sweeps dirt and debris into the Easy Empty Dust Bin. When you press the Steam on Demand Trigger, the mop releases powerful steam that will loosen grime while the washable microfiber mop pad wipes it away. This entire process can be done simultaneously, so you only have to go over your floors once. The Steam can be used on sealed hard floor surfaces like vinyl, linoleum and tile.
