If you had your heart set on the Abode mop the Holme HDSM4001 is your best bet, as it’s identical in specification. Check our full review first though to make sure it will do a good job of cleaning your home.
The Abode ADSM5001 is the same basic model but comes with a detergent that claims to neutralise odours, and some extra cleaning pads.
|Can be used with detergent||The Vax S86-SF-P Fresh Pet has separate tanks for water and detergent and comes with a bottle which Vax claims ‘cuts through grease’ and leaves your home smelling fresh.|
|Similar price||Also priced at £50, the Morphy Richards multi-floor steam mop can be used to clean hard floors and refresh carpets.|
|Triggered steam control||Steam is controlled by a trigger, like the Abode mop, and you can adjust the steam pressure to suit different cleaning jobs with the Black & Decker FSM1630 Deluxe.|
|Fast to heat up||Of the steam mops we’ve tested, this is one of the quickest to heat up. The Vax S86-SF-T Steam Fresh is ready to use a few seconds sooner than the Abode, but is it an effective cleaner? Check the full review to find out.|
