Black and Decker Intros New Steam-Mop

Don’t get this for a Mother’s Day present, but Black and Decker is trying to one-up the traditional mop and bucket with the introduction of its new and intuitive Steam-Mop with SmartSelect Technology. SmartSelect Technology means that yu can simply turn the dial to the specific floor type, for example – sealed hardwood/laminate, tile/vinyl, or stone/marble, and the mop automatically releases the right amount of steam. SmartSelect is designed to provide a worry-free, deep down clean on all sealed hard floors and is even safe on sealed hardwoods.


In cleaning with steam, users do not need to rely on harsh chemicals for a deep down clean. Simply use regular tap water to wipe out 99.9 percent of germs to achieve a clean home the all-natural way. Parents of kids and pets alike will enjoy this quick and easy way of attaining a refreshing, thorough clean.

The Steam-Mop is ready quickly with a very quick 15-second heat-up time. Also, the tank light changes from red to blue so users know when the water reaches the correct temperature. With swivel steering, users can maneuver easily around furniture and into corners, and the Black & Decker Steam-Mop automatically shuts off the steam when parked upright for those quick pauses during cleaning.

Additionally, the Steam-Mop boasts a handful of convenience features such as hands-free pad removal for easy release by simply stepping on the pad, an attached lid and cup to help avoid misplacing loose items and a tank that holds enough water for more than 25 minutes of uninterrupted cleaning.

The Black & Decker Steam-Mop is available for $89.99 and can be found at and select Walmart and Target stores. It comes with reusable, machine washable, microfiber pads and a two-year warranty.
