I've looked around and I'm having trouble finding specifics on the Orbot Vibe being used to clean laminate and hardwood floors.

Is anyone using it for those purposes?

I am a window cleaner by trade, however I'm in homes every day and have a loyal client base I'd like to tap into for floor cleaning. No stripping, no waxing, just cleaning.

The Vibe can be used to clean many floor surfaces.
I have used mine on both laminate and wood.
However a CRB can also be used on either for cleaning,

We sell and use both CRB’s and Vibes. The Vibe is hands down better cleaning and Restoration of hardwoods. CRB, though great, is a 1 trick pony.

I regularly use my vibe with microfiber pads to clean laminate floors. The only important thing is to make sure there is no rocks, pebbles, dirt, ect for the vibe to drag around and scratch the floor. Works great. If you spray carefully in front and manage the amount of moisture its fast and efficient.

Thanks for the tip. Can I ask what you use for your cleaning solution/pad/rinse? Could I get your opinion too @AZHome&Carpet

I’m pulling the trigger on the vibe tomorrow. Wondering what pads to get with it as well? Specifically for hardwood and laminate. Do you use the vibe weight kit with hardwood/laminate?

It doesn’t come with pads. I’d buy some cotton bonnets, the Super Zorbs are costly but great. Mytee just came out with some nice bonnets I haven’t used them yet but they seem to be thick.
I keep on the truck white thru black pads. Weights can help stripping but I haven’t found they have been needed for laminate cleaning. Of course I have never done absolutely trashed laminate either.
