Hi all

Apologies if this has been done to death- I've had a search of previous threads but they all seem pretty old.

I am looking for a good steam mop / cleaner which will do my tiled / wooden floors. If it has a little attachment for taps / cooker etc then that's a bonus but not essential.

I have neck problems so need something light and my
floors are FILTHY so it needs to be hard wearing.

We only have one low income so can't afford a fancy pants one - I'm aiming for under £50.

Can anyone help please?

I tried the pound stretcher one and the vax one, both got returned. I found the vax one really heavy. Both just seemed to make the the floor wet and damp and push dirt into corners.

I was really underwhelmed. They made my microfibre Lakeland mop look amazinggrin

I've just bought a polti one from the amazon reviews. Not used it yet though

Its out of your budget but I got this on Monday and I already love it.
I don't think you'll get a combination one for less than £50 - you can either get a handheld with all the bits or a floor mop one, to get both in the one item I think you may have to pay a bit more, unless anyone else can find you something.
I can't vouch for how long it will last and there are 2 things that let it down - as a mop its made of sections so doesn't feel massively robust, and you have to empty the tank half an hour after you've turned it off which is a bit of a faff, but the pressure it gives out knocks the socks off my previous mop style steam cleaner.
(I'm already a fan of steam cleaners so I'm aware that they are just blasting and disinfecting an area - if its dirty you will still need a cloth or mop head that will gather up the dirt)
