Hoover 2in1 steam mop with removable handheld, hose & tools, kills up to 99.9% of bacteria*, Steam Capsule 2in1 CA2IN1D
About this deal
We found it very easy to manoeuvre and the floor was clean and perfectly streak-free in no time using the medium setting, drying much quicker than it usually does after mopping.
In handheld mode, the Hoover Steam Capsule 2in1 certainly has the power and tools to cope with most jobs. Results were impressive, with the floor drying quickly and streak-free, with the surface dirt coming off easily.
There’s a red light that indicates it has power and a green light that indicates it’s up to temperature, but they’re hard to see in bright light, so you sometimes can’t tell if it’s on or off. The Hoover is tall and can’t be taken apart for everyday storage because that requires a screwdriver. As we’re all more conscious than ever of keeping our homes squeaky clean and free of bacteria, these electrical appliances promise to banish grime and bugs better than any mop or cloth ever could. A steam mop can make quick work of them but it’s important that it cleans well without damaging the floor and that it leaves the floor as dry as possible. You may wonder why we are reviewing such an iconic brand – yes hoover – what most people refer to as their vacuum cleaner, but not only do they do Hoovers, sorry I mean, vacuum cleaners they also have a range of steam mops too.
What’s great about this mop is it will clean on any hard floor even sealed laminate, which is great as many steam mops in the past told you to avoid laminate flooring as they would get too wet. What's more, this versatile mop also includes a carpet glider and two mops for use across all floor surfaces whilst an intergrated carry handle ensures easy portability. Then it removed entire stripes of unseen grime from the grey bathroom tiles, proving both that steam cleaning is great and ignorance is bliss. Some Hoover steam mops can also be used to clean and sanitize above floor surfaces, thanks to the detachable handheld, hose and accessories.The main, rectangular floorhead is quite bulky and comes with two microfiber pads and a carpet glider. We test cylinder, combination and handheld steam cleaners on three everyday surfaces to see how well they remove grime and dirt: tiles and grout (stained with soap, shower gel and shampoo), glass (coated with an oily film) and crevices (filled with tough everyday food soils). If you’ve got a small amount of hard floor to deal with and think of the Hoover Steam Capsule 2in1 as a maintenance cleaner, then it makes sense.
There’s an easy sliding control to choose low, medium or high steam intensity and a trigger to release the steam. We weigh them to see how portable they are and check to see whether the cleaner is comfortable to operate. Accessories included (13): 2 microfiber pads, carpet glider, pop-out triangular brush, steam hose, squeegee, microfiber cover, concentration tool, 2 plastic brushes, small metal brush, large metal brush, bent nozzle. Once we had filled the water tank, it was a doddle to get started and the long 7m power cable made it easy to keep cleaning without continually unplugging.The high temperature of the steam is perfect for sanitising surfaces, leaves no toxic residues and effectively lifts stubborn grease and grime. We check to ensure that they're easy to assemble, and that any accessories are painless to attach and remove. and we particularly felt this whenever we tackled longer or more intense jobs, as you have to keep holding down the steam trigger as you go. Whether you want to remove grease and grime from your oven racks, sanitise your bathroom ceramics or freshen up garments, Steam Capsule 2in1 has it covered.
Our Vax Steam Cleaners combine hot steam and detergent to break down grease and grime faster than steam alone, leaving your home smelling clean and fresh. Hoover steam mops thoroughly clean floors and floor coverings, removing stains and mould in an environmentally friendly manner, without the use of chemical detergents.
Both the Vax upright and the Polti Vaporetto Smart 100_B cylinder are even more compelling to clean with. It is a great feature for tough stains in your carpet, as you can steam and scrub at the same time, but it would also work with tough marks on your tiles too. The Vax ONEPWR Glide is perfect for cleaning hallways, kitchens and bathrooms as it removes the need for multiple tools. It’s a great floor mop that’s easy to use, and it’s quite powerful for spot jobs, although having to squeeze the trigger can make it tiring to use for prolonged periods.
