Tineco Floor One S3 Review

Mopping and vacuuming are no fun. Who wants to spend that much time cleaning up all the dog hair from the floor, or emptying out a dirty water tank? There’s a reason they’re referred to as chores!

It’s no surprise that so many of us want to find ways to make these arduous tasks shorter and easier and to cut down on cleaning time. And there are also different cleaning devices for different types of floor, such as a hardwood floor cleaner!

Many vacuum and mop devices have made claims to make the tasks easier, but so many times they fall short, and bring a whole new world of trouble and hassle! At that point, many people opt to settle for a traditional mop or vacuum!

You’ve probably dreamed, at some point, of a device that would tackle both jobs of vacuuming and mopping your hardwood floors or carpets all at the same time. A device that can do all of the work for you while your mind can wander elsewhere.

For many years, such fantasies were a distant dream, but in 2020 Tineco introduced the hero to remedy all of our housekeeping woes: The Tineco Floor One S3.

There’s a lot to this amazing all-in-one floor cleaner, and you are definitely going to want to hear what it has to offer. So why not stick around and find out why this amazing Tineco floor One S3 cleaner has become a domestic favorite across the United States!

What Features Does The Tineco Floor One S3 Have?

The Tineco Floor One S3 has a massive range of incredibly useful and modern features. So let’s jump right into them!

The Smart iLoop System

One of the absolute best features of the Floor One S3 is its ability to take on the cleaning process entirely independently!

You won’t have to waste your time swapping your floor cleaner between different levels of suction power, or between mop and vacuum modes, thanks to the iLoop System. 

The iLoop system allows both modes to operate at the same time, which significantly cuts down on cleaning time.

The iLoop system is built to automatically detect different textures and amounts of suctioned items.

If the vacuum notices that more items are being suctioned on a specific spot on your hardwood floors, or a bit of dirt snagged on your rug, then the intelligently optimized suction will automatically adjust the suction power to suit. 

The iLoop can also distinguish between different items, such as dog hair, or food crumbs at the same time as it is suctioning them.

This also applies to water levels. Upon detecting any amount of water on your floor, the device will automatically begin drying that exact spot. No more need for loads of paper towels littering the floor!

The iLoop will also distinguish between different floor surfaces, such as hard surfaces and hard floors, or hardwood floors so that it can adjust the power as needed so that it can always do an amazing job.

The iLoop system also helps the device to adjust between different amounts of water to help the mopping process. It can detect how the mopping brush roll is making contact with the floor to determine how much water is needed to clean that spot.

It does this by changing the water flow. And then from there, it can easily dry up any excess water from the mopping process, so that no potentially slippery water is left behind.

Absorbent Brush Roller System

The mop system kicks into action immediately upon detecting water, to dry up accidental spills. The brush roll moves at an incredible speed, to easily cut through water in no time. Far better than you could expect from traditional mops!

This also applies to the cleaning roller brush which spins quickly to whip away at even the toughest marks and stubborn spots of dirt or even pet hair, no matter the water flow level, or whether you're using it on a hard floor or a more soft floor.

In the end, you'll have yourself an amazingly shiny and clean floor.

It can do this on hard floors, wood floors, and rugs and carpets. And the best part is, the mop system is streak free, so you can clean the floor and then promptly forget about it!

Cleaning Solution

The mop system makes use of a specially designed cleaning solution that does an amazing job of removing dirt and dog hair from the floor. You can buy this floor cleaning solution from Tineco's website.

This floor cleaner has a number of ingredients that can clean through anything and do a great job, no matter how much dirt, but also doesn't have any harmful ingredients that might taint the quality of your floors. This cleaning solution is a real game changer when used in tandem with the Tineco Floor One S3.

Self Cleaning Cycle

When you’ve finished mopping up your hard floors, carpets, or rugs, you don’t even have to worry about sopping wet or dirty brushes. Simply activate the one-touch self cleaning cycle and the wash system will begin flushing through the dirty brush and replacing it with fresh water.

All you have to do before starting the self cleaning process is make sure that the dirty water tank is emptied, and that the fresh water tank is filled, and the self cleaning will begin. This process takes only five minutes upon which time the dirt from your cleaning job will be ancient history to you.

Once the self cleaning cycle has done its job, simply remove the cleaned rush and place it on the drying spot on the charging system, so that it is ready for when you next need to clean floors! The self cleaning function means you don't have to get too involved with cleaning your machine.

This is easily the best smart cordless floor washer we've ever had any experience with, and its multi-surface cleaning benefits really elevate it even further.

LED Screen

Towards the top of the dust compartment is a comprehensive LED display, which provides all the information you need as you use the vacuum. It is updated at the same time as you use it, to ensure that you can remain in full control throughout the floor cleaning process.

Towards the center of the display is the battery level, in clear and large numbers, so that you can stay on top of the energy levels of the vacuum so that you won’t find it running out of battery in the middle of a particularly tough job.

You likely won’t ever find yourself in such a situation, thanks to the incredible battery life. The vacuum can run in excess of 35 minutes while constantly running, and this is partly thanks to the efficient design throughout the vacuum which makes use of every single bit of energy.

The LED display will also display vital maintenance information. This includes such things as warning you if the brush roller becomes tangled in pet hair from the floor, or if the clean water tank is empty, or the dirty water tank is full. This helps to make it easy to stay in control constantly.

The Floor One S3 also features a voice assistant that will communicate problems or updates as you clean. The automated voice will warn you of low battery levels or when the water tanks are full or empty. This means that you never have to take your focus away from the job at hand!

Control is also made far easier thanks to the LED display. You can see the exact power level of the suction and then adjust it manually if you see fit. Below the power indicator is the on and off switch for the auto mode.

Turning on the auto mode allows the iLoop system to kick into action, which allows the vacuum to automatically adjust the suction power when it deems it necessary, such as when it detects a different type of floor. This takes a lot of the stress out of regular cleaning and vacuuming.

Discreet Design

The Tineco Floor One S3 itself is incredibly discreet and subtle in its design and will blend in wonderfully with any modern home.

It features a subtle and beautiful color palette of simple blacks and whites and is made up of clear and simple shapes, which makes it pleasant to look at, whether in use or not. 

The dirty water tank and the clean water tank both sit squarely next to each other, which gives the vacuum a symmetrical look.

The discreet design is also greatly aided by the ability to use the device as a smart cordless vacuum. This saves you the annoying wrestling match with a long and trailing wire and makes storing the vacuum after use as simple as hooking it up to the charging dock.

This also means that you can use it anywhere within the home without having to move it from one power supply to another! You can clean the entire first floor, and then move up to the next. No more moving back and forth!

However, we did notice, during our tests, that the Tineco Floor One S3 can be quite difficult to maneuver around and under furniture, thanks to its slightly bulky design. It doesn’t quite have the gliding and adaptable motion of a modern Dyson hoover.

Though this will likely be a minor hangup for many users, as it can still be moved around incredibly easily through whatever floor you use it on.

The Tineco Floor One S3 is also incredibly quiet. This helps to make it non-disturbing for pets or young children, who may otherwise be frightened by much louder vacuums.

The air used to create suction power is channeled directly through specially designed tubes, and the inside of the vacuum itself is designed so that no sound can leak out. This makes it great for those with families who want to achieve a full clean without using any noisy or bulky equipment!

Smartphone Application Integration

If you want to take the already incredible Tineco Floor One S3 even further, then you can also connect it directly to your smartphone to access a bevy of smart features. Download the Tineco app and then connect it to your wifi-enabled Tineco Floor One S3.

This gets you into direct contact with even more precise controls and personalization. It helps you to see updates throughout the vacuum so that you can ensure it runs smoothly every single time.

These updates include such things as maintenance reminders, such as reminding you to empty the dirty water tank, as well as troubleshooting tips, so that you can quickly solve any problems that arise.
