Build and Design

This mop is made by one of the best names in vacuums and steam mops, Black & Decker, and they definitely live up to their name here. This mop is designed for smaller spaces both in its full-size form and with the detachable handheld option. At the same time, however, it’s designed with a large enough tank to help you clean more at one time, without refilling.

Black & Decker Steam Mop Handle

The design is just what you need to get into corners and to easily slide across floors of any type. You can even use the included attachments for everything from grout to carpet. Plus it knows the difference between different types of hard flooring and you can change the steam amount to compensate for those types.

Overall, it’s going to take care of a lot of the problems with everything from bacteria to dirt and that means your family is going to be healthier and enjoy their clean house even more.

How to use

This mop is actually really easy to use because it doesn’t use any type of detergent or chemicals. That means all you need to put in is water straight from the tap and you’ll be able to get started. Make sure you fill the tank completely but do not overfill as this could result in leaking.

Steam Control with one Hand

Turn on the mop and wait approximately 14 seconds until the read to use light turns blue. This will tell you the water has been heated up. You can then switch the dial for the type of flooring you’re using. Look for the glowing light next to that application.

Make sure you attach your cleaning pad and you only need to pull the handle back to activate. The steam will start on its own and you’re ready to start moving it over your floor to clean. If you need a lot of steam for an extra messy spot you can use the steam burst button, which lasts approximately 10 seconds.


  • Works on floors of all types and other hard surfaces
  • 2 year warranty included
  • ​All accessories included to clean all floors
  • 25 foot cord length

Who is the Black & Decker 2-in-1 for ?

This steam mop is for anyone who has struggled trying to get their floors clean, either with traditional scrubbing or mopping or with another steam mop.

It is for anyone who has children or pets in their home that they want to keep chemicals and bacteria away from.

It is definitely for anyone who is looking to wash and dry all at the same time and without all the extra work. That’s because with the steam function you’re going to get both without the hassle of trying to mop and then dry your floors in the traditional way. It’s definitely going to be a lot easier.

What's in the box ?

Inside the box is everything that you need to make sure you’re cleaning your floors properly. And you’re going to get all your floors cleaned as well because this mop has settings for tile and vinyl, stone and marble and wood and laminate. But of course, there are also accessories to make the process easier.

You’ll get two washable microfiber pads, so you don’t need to spend a lot of money on replacements. You’ll also get a resting mat that you can set the mop on while it’s heating or if you just want to take a break for a moment. There’s also a carpet glider, grout brush, detail brush, squeegee, fill cup and a 4 foot hose. That way you can reach anything that you need while you’re using the full mop. Of course, you can also take out the hand tool to get smaller areas or higher spaces.

Final Thoughts


  • Kills 99.9% of bacteria with no chemicals
  • SmartSelect Technology cleans surfaces differently
  • Lightweight and easy to use anywhere
  • Ready to go quickly


  • Cloth catches on rough floors
  • Handheld device is difficult to eject
  • Mop head saturates and can leave streaks on darker floors

If you’re looking for a mop to clean lighter surfaces or if you’re going to clean darker surfaces earlier on you’ll be able to use this mop quite well. It’s best to avoid darker surfaces once the pad gets too saturated as this can cause some difficulty but overall this unit is going to give you the freedom to clean large spaces at the same time before it gets too wet and without having to move the cord either. It’s definitely going to be worth the money.
