Unlike conventional mops that leave floors sopping wet, a steam mop leaves floors clean, dry, and safe. Some models have a trigger that releases hot steam on demand; others produce a steady, continual supply of steam; and yet others offer both. Some steam mops feature cloth pads that can be laundered after each use, while other models have disposable pads, which are convenient but require you to purchase them on a regular basis. Steam mops should only be used on sealed, heat-tolerant floors.
