Finding the best electric mop that suits your needs may be challenging because there is a wide range of electric mops from different brands. Here are some factors you need to consider to screen out the ideal electric-style mop for yourself.
Your flooring type plays a critical role in choosing your mop. Some common floors include tiles, wood, and hardwood. Knowing your flooring will let you know which kind of electric mop suits your particular floor that may require special care.
There are two power sources of electric mops. Electric mops with cords require you to plug the cord into the outlet on the wall to get the electricity, while cordless mops use batteries to run the heads. Cords are suitable for manual electric mops. With battery-powered mops, you don’t have to find an outlet for power, which enhances the convenience but may not last long.
When choosing an electric mop, you may also need to consider the size of the room(s) you’re going to clean. Larger rooms always require electric-style mops with long-lasting batteries or longer cords. For smaller or single rooms, an electric mop with a smaller-capacity battery or shorter cord may be enough.
A robotic mop can clean automatically. Only some guidance systems are required to keep the mop on track. Powered by electricity, a manual mop requires you to take control of the handle and push the mop to places you want to clean.
The cost of an electric mop is always a factor you should take into account. Expensive ones may have better durability and last longer. Apart from the money spent on the mop, it would help to calculate the accessories' expenses, like filters, water bottles, or mopping pads.
The warranty is another factor. Make sure you know the term period, the claim process, and what is and isn’t covered.
Fully wet electric mops are best for 100% waterproof floors, such as LVP, stone, tile, etc. Please don’t use fully wet mops on floors like laminate and real hardwood, which may crack, swell or even rot if too much water is applied. Dry mops can be used on floors that can’t take water very well.
