Some steam mops have extra features, such as special attachments to clean carpets, garments, curtain, car upholstery, grout, and more. With all the options, how do you choose? Here are some of the best you can buy.

Which one should you choose?

The best cross-section of price, function, and reliability is the Bissell Powerfresh Deluxe Steam Mop. Eliminate 99.9% of germs on your floor without the use of chemicals, just the power of steam. An onboard spot boost brush lets you really get in and scrub sticky messes. Warm-up time is just 30 seconds. Choose between a high or low steam setting, depending on the job at hand. Leave behind a lovely scent as you clean using the built-in scent disc tray. It's safe to use on hardwood, marble, linoleum, ceramic, tile, or any other sealed surface.

If that's not quite enough power for you, check out the Dupray Steam Mop. Clean, disinfect, degrease, and deodorize just about any surface including floors, grout, furniture, and appliances with superheated steam (275°F/135°C). The large capacity tank means you get up to 50 minutes of cleaning before needing to refill it. Though it comes with a couple of microfiber pads, there is no need to buy expensive replacement pads once you're done with them. You can just use any old towel or cloth for the job. The Dupray Steam Mop comes with an 18-piece accessory kit to get into hard-to-reach areas.
