Buy a steam mop if you just want to clean floors. They’re best for hard floors, but some are useful for freshening up carpets and lifting stains, too. They’re generally cheaper than 2-in-1 steam mops, which can switch into a handheld mode for other tasks.
Many steam mops can only be used for your hard floor surfaces, but lots of them will deal with various materials such as linoleum, ceramic tile, hard wood and laminate (to name but a few). However, if you’re prepared to spend a little extra there are models that come with various attachments so you can tackle areas like countertops, grout and various other crevices where dirt can hide.
I knew a variation would work in our tool shed. I had some PVC left over from a sculpture project posted here. (Side note- following that link is worth it if you don’t know about our sculpture week. Risk it and take a look!) Instead of the suggested format, I cut the PVC scraps at an angle (approx. 30º) into 6 pieces and mounted them at the mid point and bottom of my shed wall. Here are the cut pieces. I saved the short end pieces and I was glad I did.

Thanks Evelyn, The comment on the pictures of me made me smile. Those are hard to get because it requires someone else to be there at the right time! Often my How to photos are of my left hand because my right hand is taking the shot. Everyone thinks I am left handed but not! Thanks for the invite.

Plywood or OSB board: Wood walls make a durable option for garages: They can take a beating from teenagers carelessly backing out the family car and are strong enough to hang tools and without worrying so much about studs. They also help absorb sound. “Plywood has a neat look for walls when painted,” Eric says. “Just be aware it will take several coats, because it really soaks up the paint.”
Repurpose old furniture into storage for your tools. Any piece of furniture with shelves or drawers can be useful when you’re trying to organize your tools, and you don’t have to spend a lot of money on it. Ask your family and friends if they have any old furniture, or check thrift stores or classified ads for cheap options.
Manufacturers indicate that their steam mops can be used on various hard floors, including vinyl, tile, and sealed wood. But all the tested models left residual moisture, some more than others. A wood floor that appears sealed might have crevices where water can seep in and cause damage. Also, some wood finishes or older waxes might haze over. Check with the manufacturer of your flooring to make sure using a steam mop wouldn’t void the warranty.
