We test 25 steam mops in the CHOICE labs, including models from Bissell, Black & Decker, Karcher, and Kenwood.

Last updated: 16th January 2014

Steam mops are a handy household ally that can help you cut down on costly (and sometimes harsh) chemicals in your home. But do they perform any better at cleaning floors than a simple mop and bucket? We test 25 models, priced from $49 to $349, to tell you:

  • what to buy
  • which clean floors best
  • which are easiest to use
  • which have the most features.

Need to know what to look for when shopping for a steam mop and how they compare to similar products on the market? See our new steam mop buying guide and more expert advice and tips here.
