We didn't do too much research before hand. Rather we went to Walmart and looked at the options. We ended up going for a mid range prices shark mop (http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/shark-light-and-easy-steam-mop/6000188629410) for about $60. It was lightweight, easy to use, had a 30 second heat up time and had washable mop pads which was important because I wanted to be environmentally friendly and not always need to buy new mop pads.
We brought it home and were amazed how well it cleaned the floor and how much dirt it picked up off what we thought were clean floors! We bought some extra mop pads so we had spares depending on how much we clean, we figured one could be designated solely for the suite for when tenants move
Out. I love that it doesn't take much water to fill the holder (maybe 1.5 cups) and we can steam our entire top floor of the house without it running empty. I also love hat it heats up so quick, so it's always ready to clean when I am.
