I have a Hoover steam stream (TM) which replaced my $20 Flea market floor steamer purchase ~ 1.5 years ago. I have tried 'everything' to get this machine to do a good job on my floors without success. This included calling the Hoover 1 800# for HELP No luck there either! If you have extremely low expectations then this machine could be for you. However, if you expect at the very least marginal performance from your purchase then save your money or try another brand. Absolutely no value for $$$ with this Hoover.
