Some of the best floor cleaning machines, also known as steam mops, include the Bissell Powerfresh and Shark Steam & Spray, according to ConsumerSearch. Each unit is able to clean or loosen grime from floors using steam jets, all the while collecting the dirt using a microfiber pad.
The Bissell Powerfresh model is a basic steam mop that works well against grime or older stains and is generally priced under $100. The Symphony is the upgraded version of the mop that features a vacuum to suck up any loose debris.
The Shark Steam & Spray is different from conventional steam mops, as it combines the steam with a disinfecting solution to deliver a quick and effective deep clean, as described by Shark. The unit is available with either disposable or reusable cleaning pads.
