Rated 1 out of 5 by Ilovebutter A waste of time and money
This mop is rubbish. I have just used it for the 1st time and it broke. I have had a steam mop for the last 4 years so I know how to use them.
On the second pad, the ball joint broke free from its housing and poked through the pad. The housing is held on by 4 tiny screws in a thin band of plastic. Another screw fell out of the ball joint which is made of 2 bits screwed together. I was already annoyed by the switch being incredibly stiff. Now I've got to lug it all the way back to the store in one long piece because it doesn't come apart again. DON'T BUY !!!!
I'd give it zero stars, but it won't allow it

This Steam Mop saves me so much time in mopping the floors. Great that you don't need chemicals, it really does get the floors clean and sanitised in no time, which is great as I have a Labrador who likes to put mucky paw prints all over the kitchen floor on a regular basis. It also works well on removing carpet stains (paw prints again)
I have purchased two additional mops for my Mum and Mother-In-Law and they are now both converts to steam mopping.
The replacement pads are not expensive and easy to order and they are washable and you get two pads with the mop.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dreamhouse Well pleased !!
I had not thought of an alternative to the old mop and bucket ! But stumbled on this and looked at the reviews decided to buy. And I love it ! Works really well ..no chemicals, no need for flash ! the 3 corners are very narrow so it gets into
places that the mop cannot got into. I have pipes in the wc that I could not get the old mop under and my doorstep tiles come up so clean they are much better with the steam. And gets under the sill of the doorstep. It is simple and straight forward to use. No hard to understand instructions. Simple and basic. ..will highly recommend ..I am a cynical shopper ..takes alot for me to change my old ways ..but I am a convert now

Rated 1 out of 5 by TheRaider No 2 broke already !!!
The 1st time I used this it was absolutely great, I came to use it a 2nd time but it had broke half way through cleaning my dinning room floor !!!! the ball joint had broken free from the housing which is held on by 4 small screws in a thin band of plastic, I screwed the screw back in and carried on cleaning, but unfortunately it broke again this time the thin band of plastic had snapped and could not be fixed.
This was my 2nd steam mop, the same thing happened to my 1st purchase, I will not be exchanging this one, I will be taking it back for a full refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tallnslim69 It turned out okay in the end
I purchased this and was excited to see my laminate floor clean after the great reviews I'd seen. It was absolutely amazing - for 5 mins, then it stopped working and had died on me. I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt and put it down to bad luck and reordered another one, which I picked up at the same time as taking the old one back rather than having it delivered to my home again. This time it was completely different. It works like a dream on my laminate floors and they look fantastic, although I can't say I can see a huge amount of difference on my rugs. Would recommend for hard floors.

I have 2 German Shepherd dogs running in and out of the garden all day, I'd forgotten what my wooden floor looked like, I had used numerous mops and cleaners which took ages and never managed to clean the floor up. So I decided to try a steam mop, I didn't want to spend lots of money, so I bought one of these... I can see my floor at last!!! I've also used it on unsealed laminate and it seems fine, it dries too fast to do any longterm damage and it can't be as bad as swamping the floor in chemicals. It's effortless, easy to use, quick to heat, lightweight and no buckets of dirty water to empty - it's the best purchase i've ever made as far as household gadgets are concerned.... a must for dog owners!

Was a bit dubious about this mop as its a lot cheaper than the others but it does its job well is easy to use & the pads can be washed in the machine after use. Really impressed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by hmcshopper Great buy at great value price!
This is a fantastic product. It is very easy to assemble (comes with instructions but easy to assemble without), is lightweight and sturdy. As it is so slim it can be easily stored. It has really made a difference to the cleanliness of my sealed wooden floors, floor tiles and laminate flooring by really lifting the dirt. It dries fast with a streak free finish and is ideal especially if you have a dog (like us) or children for keeping things clean. One small critism (and it is only a very small one) is that the lead could be longer but don't let that put you off. This is leaps ahead of the old mop and bucket routine. Wish I'd bought one ages ago! Highly recommended!

Rated 5 out of 5 Very good easy to use product
The whole of our downstairs floor is tiled and we have dogs. I sweep then vacum then finish with this steam mop. The floor dries very quickly (almost straight away) and looks much cleaner and feels more hygenic than my previous mopping regime.
I wash the fabric head out in a bucket or put in washing machine with work clothes ready to go again. (there is a spare, I think they will last ages and you could make replacements with towel and velcro)
I have popped the carpet glider on and gone over the mats too they look fresher and again feel more hygenic.
My old mop is redundant and this is my tool of choice every time now.

Been wanting one of these since i saw the ad for the Vax steam mop so thought i'd risk £20 for this one as it was on offer from the original price of £29.95. It's just amazing!!! Easy to assemble, extremely easy to use. My kitchen and hallway is lino tiles, my bathroom non slip lino. I've always prided myself on clean floors but this steam mop brought them up so much better it also works on rugs and carpets which the vax one does'nt do. I've also recommended it too a friend who also bought one and loves hers too with same results as me on her stone tile floors and laminate. High recommended :D

Rated 5 out of 5 by mistert2 Steam mop works
On glued laminate and click laminate - OK.
Used on ceramic floor tiles which have a decorative groove.
Cleans well, just push slowly - especially on the grooved ceramic tiles. Heats quickly, and the small resevoir lasts long enough. Hard to push when pad needs cleaning/changing - buy more than just the 2 that come with it.
Two parts of handle badly formed, so hard to push together. Handle flimsy, and hard to push if you are tall. Cable short - needs another few metres.
It is value for money. Didn't fancy spending twice as much to see if steam mopping was any good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wagamamaluva Does the job
Light and simple to use. Like the fact it gets into corners with the swivel head. Amazingly good at steaming rugs/carpet with the additional carpet glider cover which simply pops on over the cloth and really does glide nicely. It's a no nonense steam mop, steams hot, dries promptly and is compact enough to store away (you can even hang it up if you want to). I've looked at a lot of steam mops prior to buying this and I can vouch for the fact that it is as good as it gets in comparison and because of the way it is, I use my more often that I might had I had another one. It is handy and cleans really well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smit Worth Buying
Basic, light weight and very user friendly. Eco friendly as no need for detergents. It is like "steam ironing" the floor". Cleaning the floors are quick and dry within minutes. You will be amazed at the dirt it lifts. No longer use a mop and detergents on my tiled floors, as I don't believe a mop and detergents clean the floor to the same degree. Only negative point that not suitable for solid wood floors.
I have recommended it to family and friends and indeed purchased it as gifts for 4 other family members, all whom agree with me.
I would recommend buying the additional pads, which are washable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 00Snaphappy Dissapointed
After reading the other reviews for this mop I decided to give it a go on my new kitchen floor tiles. Easy to construct and surprisingly sturdy, steam almost instant but so disappointing! it just didn't clean the floor very well at all and in the end I had to resort to a mop and bucket. I also found the black plastic rim which holds the pads in place, more of a hinder than a help as it prevents you from getting into the corners properly although the great design of the mop should make this possible! Sadly not impressed. This mop may work better on totally smooth surfaces (as my tiles are slightly raised) but otherwise avoid.

Rated 5 out of 5 by betzb32 a great solution to home cleaning w/o chemicals
i purchased this steam mop after watching a late night shopping channel they were offering no hassle and no chemicals and 99.9% of bacteria killed. perfect i thought whats the price? after much waffle from the shopping channel guy... £69.99 was the deal of the day, great but i didnt have the £99. thank you holme for recreating this same purpose steam mop at a very affordable price £20 and im blown away at how easy it is to use and how fresh my home feels after using it. i definately recommend this if you have kids and pets as i do to keep your home smelling the way it should do. clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jojo1234 Wish I'd bought this sooner
I bought this steam mop as I was sick of scrubbing the tiles in my conservatory and not seeing much result for my efforts. The steam mop is brilliant. All the scuff marks have completely disappeared from my cream floor tiles and the dirt that had collected in the grout (thanks to my dog) was softened enough to enable me to lightly brush it with a nail brish and completely remove it. My floor looks new again. I also used it on my carpet in a heavy traffic area and the results are amazing. This is sgoing to save me a fotune on cleaning products and the steam mop is very cheap to buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 Fantastic Value
I wanted an in expensive steam mop as I was fed up mopping the floor the old fashioned way everyday since I just got a dog. Not only was this cheap, it was fantastic value for money.
Heats up in 30secs and the floor is amazingly clean in no time. To test how good it was I used it after mopping the old fashioned way and the pad was black by the end of it!! Picked up dirt very well.
I also bought the replacement pads as well as I wanted enough to last the week so they could all go into the washing machine together once a week with some vanish to clean them up.
The handle/frame is slightly flimsy, however for the cost I can't complain, esp since it cleans so well.

This small steam cleaner is great for household floors, is light to carry and has a decent length of cable. I use it every week on tiled floors and they come up very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PUPPS Excellent purchase! Brilliant!
Brilliant at cleaning your floor just with steam. There is enough steam so it doesn't leak but gets the floor clean too. AS OTHERS HAVE MENTIONED It is light weight, easy to use, good at getting into the nooks and crannies, easy to store. It is much better to store away than your vacuum cleaner, it is compact and hey don't need a bucket and mop. Most of all, it doesn't cost you the earth, it is very good value for money. It does just what it says on the description. very happy to have purchased it. I had stalled it for 2 months having other costs with kids and all. When it was on offer jumped for the chance. I think every household should have one! It is brilliant!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cariad3 Excellent purchase/Great little mop
I purchased this steam mop after searching and reading reviews for dozens of different makes with various prices and comments etc. over a period of some months.
As I only have a very small kitchen and bathroom where I would use the product I didn't really want to spend between £70 - £100 plus especially with quite a large amount of reviews stating the mop leaves the floor quite wet.
I came across this Holme HSM2001 with Asda, read the good reviews and decided that for the great price Asda was offering it at I definitely had to give it a go.
Well, I couldn't wait to put it to the test and I was not disappointed it is a great little mop, lightweight easy to handle and use, just perfect so far and as other reviews have stated it DEFINATELY leaves the floor almost dry.
I would highly recommend this mop you can't go wrong if you purchase this just follow the simple instructions and you are away.

This steam mop is very good. it is easy to assemble and use, very lightweight and storageable. It's cheap to run and doesn't require any cleaning products other than water. Ordering was easy and delivery was prompt. I was sent returns information and labels should I need to return the item which I didn't. All in all I was pleased with the service and the item. I shall use this service again.

I had been looking for a steam mop for a while but thought they were too expensive until I found this one, so I purchased it not thinking it would be much good, but it is great! it heats up quickly and leaves the floor nearly dry. I also purchased the spare mop heads but don't think I needed them because you get two with the mop. The only problem I have found with the mop is that it wont fit between the wall and the toilet in the bathroom so I still have to do that on my hands and knees or use another mop. The head on the mop seemed very stiff so I put some petroleum jelly on the joint before using it for the first time and it made it move very easily. Overall very pleased with this product and would reccommend it

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sueasda Perfect just what I was looking for.
I brought this steam mob last week from Asda Direct, I did my home work before purchasing the Steam Mop, and found the Holme HSM2001 was for me. I love its lightness, how quick if is ready to use, how clean my floors look, the price is amazing for the product, I have already reccommended this to my friends already, the pads was up like new, oh and it makes everything smell so clean.

Pleased with this purchase. Have used it twice so far to clean kitchen, bathrooms, hall and porch. It produces steam quickly and floors dry quickly have not found any problems with water drips.
Floors look and feel clean afterwards. The mop is easy to use and has a flexible/ swivel head which is a real bonus.
The mop comes with 2 mop heads which I washed after use, they have come up well and washing hasn't damaged the Velcro.
A good value buy so far. If I had any complaint it would be the quality of the plastic used in the water container it looks like a reused pop bottle. The filling hole is quite small and I guess this may cause a problem in people with dexterity problems.

Bought this on the recommendation of a friend and it is great. I have tiled floors right through the hall, kitchen-diner and bathroom, and washing them used to be a real chore. Now I can do the lot in 15 mins. The mop is really easy to assemble and use. The water heats in seconds, and the floor dries really quickly afterwards. My tiles are textured and were not easy to clean properly with an ordinary mop but the steam gets into all the crevices and leaves the floor spotless. The mop is feather light to push and I no longer have backache after doing the floors.

I purchased this whilst on offer and had it delivered to my local store and had it within 2 days, at first i thought it looked a bit flimsy, but changed my mind once i started to use it, cleans and dries my ceramic floor tiles very quickly, as before every time i had the mop and bucket out everyone wanted to walk in hall, kitchen or bathroom, not a problem now, also refreshed my carpets. Only negative thing i wish more cloth pads were included as i need to clean floors daily having kids and a dog, but you can wash them & purchase more online which i will do.

Iam very happy with purchase. I used a video on you-tube to assemble product. Found very easy to use. The first time I used it on my kitchen tiles I was shocked at what it brought off! I was able to clean kitchen and hall before having to refill water, which was very easy to do. Put white pads in washer after use. I felt it made the flooring cleaner than usual mopping. Remember to sweep the floors before use.

very happy to puchase this item as it has made my work very easy --it's quick to assemble & use within a few minutes. Excellent to clean kitchen tiles & also dries the tiles, does not leave any marks on the tiles. I ordered 3 of this mops -2 of which I have gifted to my family & they too are very excited to have this product. Considering my age it's the best purchase I have made as I have back problem.
