I Wanna Steam Everything with My Hoover SteamScrub 2-IN-1 #PowerofSteam

A long time ago I bought a hand held steamer. It worked okay, but only on sealed, hard surfaces. It took forever to heat up, and if I recall correctly, it was pretty pricey for a very basic machine. That was my only experience with a steamer, so to be honest I wasn’t that hyped about trying the Hoover SteamScrub 2-in-1.

It’s just for my kitchen and bathroom floors, I thought. Nothing I can’t do faster with a wet mop, I thought. Huh. Turns out I was so very, very wrong.

Unlike my old steamer, the Hoover SteamScrub 2-in-1 only takes 30 seconds to heat up and cleans just about everything. It comes complete with 12 tools and accessories for every job around my house, plus a bottle of cleaning solution, steam connector hose, and storage bag to keep everything together. The versatility of the SteamScrub is remarkable! There’s no need to buy anything extra; everything you need comes standard in the box.

We had some friends and family over for a barbecue a little while ago, so it was the perfect time to do some deep cleaning around the house. The Scrub Brush encased in the foot and the machine’s steam power worked beautifully together to get all the dried on food and stains off my kitchen floor. The freshly steamed floor even felt clean on my bare feet.

I was so impressed with the job the SteamScrub did on my floor that I decided to keep going! The entire machine’s only 8 pounds and with the detachable Lift-Away Steamer option, I can convert it from an upright steam mop to an ultra light handheld unit I can take with me to easily clean my kitchen, bathroom, BBQ grill, carpets, upholstery – pretty much anywhere. I do wish the portable steamer came with some kind of a carrying strap for convenience’s sake though.

The Steam Scrub 2-in-1’s Twin Tank Technology separates clean water from the cleaning solution so I can choose whether or not to use solution. But one of my favourite things about the SteamScrub is that I rarely need to use any cleanser because the steam itself does such a good job of cleaning and sanitizing on its own. It’s actually kind of fun watching the steam spray away the dirt!

Our dog Kallie is getting old now, which means she occasionally has accidents in the house. That’s when I LOVE the SteamScrub. Instead of using harsh detergents or bleach, the steam cleans, sanitizes, and removes 99.9% of harmful bacteria on my sealed hard floors. It even cleans carpet and upholstery, and there’s no need to rinse! We’re a couple of years past the point now, but how I wish I’d had this when the girls were potty training.

The SteamStream feature provides a direct steam spray to help get out really tough stains, and I can control the amount of steam with the trigger to customize it for the surface I’m cleaning: heavy for my kitchen tiles, light for my laminate flooring.

I love all the tools this comes with, and most of the pieces are stored directly on the body of the steamer so they’re all organized and easily accessible for whatever task I have at hand. My only complaint is with the steam connector storage up at the top of the handle. It doesn’t lock in so it falls out too easily, even just with vigorous back and forth movement of the steam mop.

I particularly appreciate that the cleaning pads and upholstery cloth are all machine washable and reusable. You all know that reducing waste is important to me, so reusable is definitely the way to go. Reusable accessories are greener, budget-friendly, and I’ll never have to run to the store to buy more pads before cleaning.

I don’t think anyone actually loves cleaning, but I will say that when you have to, the SteamScrub 2-in-1 does a great job and even makes it kind of fun. I’ll take that, thanks!

The SteamScrub 2-in-1 retails for $249.99 CAD and is available at Canadian Tire and Amazon. Connect with Hoover Canada on Facebook or Twitter.

  • Wow! I am impressed with the price on the Hoover for all that it can do! This sounds like a really great device to have in your home to clean so many surfaces!

  • Wow, I think I may put off buying that new mop I was planning to get and go for the Hoover instead! It would be really nice to get my kitchen and laundry room floors clean without the back breaking scrubbing that usually takes place. Less harsh chemicals in the house would be great too.

    I don’t have a ton of storage for things like this (my vacuum usually sits under the stairs in my living room), it looks fairly compact in your photos though, does it take up much space when it’s packed away?
