Hoover BH55210 ONEPWR FloorMate Jet Features and Specifications
Hoover BH55210 ONEPWR FloorMate Jet is designed for cleaning various bare floors, including sealed hardwoods, tiles, laminate and refreshing area rugs and low-pile carpets.
Hoover BH55210 cleans the floors by combining the cleaning solution, microfiber multi-purpose brushroll and good suction.
As the cleaning head glides over the surface, user applies the cleaning solution when required via trigger system, the brushroll thoroughly cleans the surface and the suction picks up any dirt from the floors, leaving the floors clean and 'almost dry'.
Note: we say 'almost dry' because floors are slightly moist after cleaning with Hoover BH55210, but they dry rather fast.
When cleaning area rugs and carpets, microfiber brushroll (optimized for bare floors) doesn't 'bite' into the carpet fibers strong enough in order to pull out deeply embedded dirt and tangled long pet hair and the unit doesn't have suction strong enough to vacuum deeply stuck dirt, dust, crumbs and similar. But, Hoover BH55210 can be used for light surface cleaning and refreshing of the low-pile carpets and area rugs.
Hoover BH55210 vacuums while washing the floors, allowing a one-step cleaning with cord-free convenience. However, although Hoover BH55210 acts as a vacuum cleaner, it is not intended to replace the main full-size home vacuum cleaner.
Brushroll cover is translucent, allowing the user to monitor the condition of the brushroll. Also, in order to maintain the brushroll, it can be removed from the unit quickly, with no tools required.
Hoover BH55210 comes with two tank system which keeps the cleaning solution and dirty liquids separate.
Cleaning solution tank features filling lines, allowing the user to quickly fill the tank with warm tap water and Hoover cleaning solution. These filling lines are set for smaller (up to 300 sq. ft) and larger (up to 600 sq. ft.) spaces.
Hoover BH55210 features swivel main cleaner head neck, enabling the unit to be rather maneuverable and to easily clean around the floor objects and obstacles and along the walls.
Unit is powered with ONEPWR 3.0 Ah lithium-ion battery, which provides energy for up to 20 minutes of operation.
Note: Hoover offers a range of cleaning tools and accessories powered via their ONEPWR lithium ion batteries, featuring 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0 Ah capacity and 20 volts.
Actual voltage is 18 volts since these batteries are 5-cells lithium batteries (5-cells x 3.6 volts/cell = 18 volts), but maximum charging voltage is 20 volts. Never, but really never charge these batteries with the chargers intended for other batteries!
According to the Hoover, every ONEPWR battery works with every ONEPWR product, offering great savings when using several ONEPWR products and just a couple of ONEPWR batteries!
When the battery is discharged, it takes ~3.5 hours to fully charge it again.

To help with sticky and stubborn messes and in order to prolong the operating battery life, Hoover BH55210 features two cleaning modes:
- ECO mode optimizes the battery operating time and is intended for every day cleaning of the most common messes at home. ECO mode offers runtime of up to 20 minutes.
- HIGH mode optimizes performances, but it shortens the operating life of the battery. HIGH mode is intended for sticky and other similar messes, commonly found at homes with pets and kids.
Note: if you have larger areas to clean or more ONEPWR cleaning tools, additional ONEPWR battery can double the cleaning time, allowing the user to clean rather large area at once.
Hoover BH55210 is relatively lightweight unit - it weighs 10.4 pounds (~4.7 kg), with empty tanks. Also, it comes with 2-year limited warranty, which is acceptable warranty for such unit.
What's In The Box?
When the Hoover BH55210 arrives, the box contains Hoover BH55210 FloorMate Jet cleaner, ONEPWR charger, ONEPWR 3.0 Ah lithium-ion battery, multi-purpose brushroll, storage&rinse tray, measuring cup and 8 oz hard floor solution.
As its name suggests, storage&rinse tray is used for both storage and for cleaning/rinsing of the brushroll and the nozzle.
Note: Hoover BH55210 FloorMate Jet is simple to use and maintain hard floor cleaner, but just in case, when it arrives, be sure to thoroughly read the manual. Also, when it arrives, the battery is for safety reasons only half charged - prior the first use, charge the battery fully.
Hoover BH55210 FloorMate Jet Maintenance
As said before, Hoover BH55210 is simple to use and maintain cleaner.
From time to time, it is up to the user to:
- rinse the brushroll and nozzle by placing the unit on the tray, adding 5 oz of water and running the unit for 10-15 seconds at HIGH mode until the water is fully extracted from the tray. If required, this can be repeated until the brushroll and the nozzle are clean. After that, take the brushroll out, place it on the rack and let it dry completely.
- clean the dry air filter by removing it from the unit, hand washing it with warm water and mild detergent, and reassembling it into the unit after it has been thoroughly dried.
- charge the battery after cleaning/washing task.
Note: Hoover BH55210 FloorMate Jet also features thermal protection - if there is a clog or blockage of some kind and the motor starts to overheat, thermal protection stops the unit. If that happens, turn off the unit, remove the battery, remove the blockages and wait at least 30 minutes for the unit to cool down. After that, use it normally.
