Q: Can this be used on Vinyl floors
A: Before recently installing our vinyl flooring, I checked with the sales person and asked if I could use my steam mop on it. I had read that it was not recommended. The sales person at the store told me it was ok to use a steam mop. I was a little reluctant, but decided to go ahead and use it. My vinyl is glued down and so far I've had no problems using the mop on it. Hopefully, over time, it is still going to be ok. I don't know if it depends on the brand or not. Mine is Tarkett.submitted byVBfan - 6 years ago
A: I'm a professional handyman of 36 years, regardless of others who 'think' their professionals Tarkett is best there is when comes to flooring. Awe yea big box stores will claim other brands, but ask them to get you Tarkett, and you'll find out they cannot. Is because they have contract with other brands? No, they don't meet Tarkett standards. Reason most DIY and some contractors get frustrated installing and maintenance is they're not diligent in what their doing, and they don't take the time read mfg. specs. Tarkett "cannot" be installed without use of Tarkett mfg. tools, simply as that, no way around it, the least little speck of debris the track (groove) then you've done messed up. Another tip Linoleum (Lino) is a "type" of floor covering, not brand named. Linoleum and vinyl "are not" the same. It isn't the steam that damages the covering, its the type of adhesive used to apply the covering. Best method is like cleaning carpet test a inconspicuous spot first not all floors are applied the same; and, never every use butyl on any floor where pets eat, sleep, or children play. Final those working in stores usually are not pros, some are very informed of "their employers" products, but like said if you want your answer test it first or ask a qualified professional tradesman who has actual installed several types of flooring.submitted byDave - 5 years ago

Q: Can I use this on a laminate floor ( not a wood one). Thank you
A: I read it should be at the lowest setting: "Steam mops use a significant amount of water and heat while cleaning, and should, therefore, be used carefully. By using the right technique, you can effectively clean and sanitize your laminate flooring. Experts advise that you follow the natural grain of the floor. Going against it can cause moisture to penetrate the tiny cracks and crevices and cause damage (1). If your steam mop isn’t specifically made for laminate, choose a low setting to avoid excessive heat. Test First Before steam mopping your entire floor, give the mop a test in a small corner to make sure it won’t do any harm. Check the floor after a few strokes to make sure water is at a minimum. If you do notice standing water, wipe it off using a clean cloth or towel. It’s also important that you don’t make steam cleaning a part of your everyday cleaning regime. The hot steam can weaken the seal on your laminate floor. Some floor manufacturers will even void warranties if cleaned with steam (2)."
