Not all steam mops are created equal. This
becomes more apparent when you find out that not all steam mops get hot enough to actually sanitize floors. This is
a fact that many consumers don't learn until after they purchase their steam mop. Here is a guide to the best steam
mops for not only getting your floors clean but also for sanitizing them too!
It's important to note that in order for germs, bacteria, and dust mites to be
killed, you need your steam mop to be at least 212 degrees.
Steam Mops That Get Hot

Mop's claims to fame is actually that it is one of the hottest steam mops you can buy. At 266 degrees, it should
definitely kill whatever is living on your floors.

Steam Mops to Avoid if Sanitized
Floors are Important to You

Shark has long been the most famous steam mop on the market. But this popular mop only gets the water heated to 110
degrees. Add to that the long list of customer complaints about this mop and you should really avoid this

lots of positive customer reviews to it's name and has a lot of nice features including a mop head that swivels 360
degrees, if sanitizing is important to you this mop with it's 125 degree temperature isn't your best option!
