Vax Floormate hard floor cleaner does the scrubbing for you

Hard floors are great, they’re durable, hardwearing and can look beautiful, but let’s face it they’re hard work too – particularly if you’ve got large areas that take a daily beating. You have to scrub them and then wait for them to dry and then they get walked on again! The new Vax Floormate hard floor cleaner range is designed to do all the hard work for you. The Floormate cleans, scrubs and dries your floors, giving you a professional level of clean,  quickly and easily.

The Floormate has counter-rotating SpinScrub brushes that gently scrub and wash the floor from all angles, while extraction technology removes excess water to leave your floors both clean and dry. It’s hygienic too, as Dual Tank Technology keeps the clean and dirty water separate so you never put dirty water back on the floor. Its 33cm wide cleaning path means you can clean large areas quickly and the rubber wheels won’t mark your floors.

Vax Floormate Deluxe
And with hard floors, it can be real challenge to clean the grout between your floor tiles. To get them really clean you typically have to get on your hands and knees to scrub, as a traditional mop just isn’t up to the job. Not so with the Vax Floormate Deluxe, as it does all the scrubbing for you. It has two sets of quick-change SpinScrub brushes, including one designed specially for tiles and grout.  For tackling really stubborn food stains or dried on mud, there’s also a Clean Boost button that delivers extra cleaning power where it’s needed.

Vax Floormate Trio
No more sweeping up dusty, dirty floors as you put down your broom and switch to the Floormate Trio. This 3-in-1 floor cleaner not only scrubs and dries your floors, it also vacuums up dirt, dust and crumbs. Simply turn the dial to switch between its vacuuming, washing and drying modes. Its folding handle means it’s really easy to store away too.
