About Hurricane 360 Spin Mop

Manufactured by TeleBrands and based out of Fairfield, NJ, the Hurricane 360 Spin Mop uses Centrifugal Drying Technology, along with a 360-degree swivel head, to cut your cleaning time in half. According to the product’s website, you’ll never have to touch your mop again, and you’ll be able to clean hard-to-reach areas like never before.

The Hurricane Mop has been featured on CBS and the Hallmark Channel, as well as in Reader’s Digest. As a company, TeleBrands has an F rating with the Better Business Bureau, based on 1,685 closed complaints within the past three years. Online reviews about the Hurricane Mop in particular appear to be “average” to “poor,” with most complaints citing that construction is cheap, and that it doesn’t perform as advertised.

How the Hurricane 360 Spin Mop Works

The Hurricane Mop claims to cut your cleaning time “in half” by providing several advantages over conventional mops:

  1. 360-degree swivel head reaches anywhere, and even pivots under furniture.
  2. Mop head uses a special micro-fiber material that absorbs up to 10 times its own weight in liquids, doesn’t leave scratches or streaks, picks up dust and dirt at the same time, and doesn’t drip.
  3. Bucket with patented Centrifugal Dryer Technology spins at more than 1,000 RPM to “spin the dirt away.”

The Hurricane Mop manufacturer claims that it cleans, dries, and polishes in one step, and that you’ll never have to sweep or touch a dirty mop again. They also claim it is environmentally friendly, but no additional information is provided to support this claim.

Hurricane Mop Pricing & Refund Policy

The Hurricane 360 Spin Mop with machine washable head, hands-free bucket, and sticky buddy lint roller is currently offered directly through the manufacturer at two payments of $19.99 each, plus $12.99 shipping and handling. Keep in mind that if you’re located outside the continental U.S., you’ll be assessed an additional $10 shipping and handling fee. As with most “As Seen on TV” products, you’ll be given an opportunity to receive a second “free” mop, head, and sticky buddy for an additional $19.99 fee.

When checking out on the Hurricane Mop website, you’ll also be given the opportunity to purchase the following additional items:

  • Hurricane Spin Mop Dolly – $14.94 plus $1.95 shipping and handling.
  • Set of Two Mop Heads – $19.98 and free shipping.
  • Set of Two Mop Duster Heads – $19.98 and free shipping.

TeleBrands will include your first $19.99 payment, your additional $19.99 payment for the “free” product, and the $12.99 shipping and handling in for first installment, bringing the total to $52.97 (if you don’t include any add-ons). Your second $19.99 installment will then be billed 30 days thereafter.

However, keep in mind that the Hurricane Mop can also be purchased through other retailers such as Amazon.com, Bed Bath & Beyond, Walmart, Sears, QVC, and more, though many of the special offers and add-ons will not be available.

All Hurricane 360 Spin Mops come with a 30-day 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you’re dissatisfied for any reason, you’ll receive a full refund of the purchase price, less shipping and handling fees. You won’t need to contact the company for a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) number, but you will need to include your order number, complete name/address, phone number or email address, a detailed explanation for your reason for return, and clarification as to whether you’d like a refund or replacement. Once received and accepted, your refund should be processed within 10 business days.

On top of this, the Hurricane Mop also comes with a five-year replacement guarantee. According to the company, if it breaks for any reason during this time, they’ll replace it free of charge.

Bottom Line: Is the Hurricane Mop a Scam?

Based on our research, the general idea behind the Hurricane Mop and bucket appears to be unique, but the execution appears to be sub-par. Numerous consumers have claimed that it is poorly constructed and made of cheap plastic; that the bucket pedal and mop handle break easily; and that it does not pick up floor debris as well as advertised.

Furthermore, like most “As Seen on TV” products, the bulk of their money is made through non-refundable shipping and handling charges. At a minimum, this means that if you decide to return your Hurricane Mop, you won’t receive your $12.99 shipping and handling charges back, and you’ll also incur additional charges shipping it back to the manufacturer.

    The Hurricane Spin Scrubber is heavy, and it just doesn't clean. I bought Kaboom for the bathroom, and all you have to do is spray it, take a rag or sponge, and wipe it clean. It gets rid of the soap scum quickly. Now if they could invent something like that on a long handle, it would be great. I paid $39.00 for that Spin Scrubber, and it was a big waste of money.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

  • This mop is the best

    • Wildomar, CA,
    • Feb 13, 2017

    I live in a 3,600 square foot home, all of which is tile (besides four out of the seven bedrooms that have carpet), so pretty much 85% of my house requires a mop to clean my floors. Anywhoo, I've been trying for years to make my job of cleaning and keeping my floors clean easier for myself and had yet to find one (from Swiffers, to Shark steamers, to the good old wool head mop that weighs 5 lbs and I have to wring out by hand).

    Nothing seemed to work, until my husband bought me this mop for Christmas. I love this thing. I'm a mopping fool; I can actually walk around our house with knee shoes on, and my floors feel like velvet. I rate this mop a 10+.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

  • Low quality spin mop

    • San Francisco, CA,
    • Feb 7, 2017

    I owned the Hurricane Spin Mop and really enjoyed using it for two months before the foot pedal broke. Frustrated, I researched other spin mops and ended up ordering the Twist and Shout Mop because it is the only one that offers a lifetime warranty. At least if it breaks, it should be covered under warranty! I've had it for six months, and so far so good. I love it and totally recommend it.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Cheaply made product

    • El Centro, CA,
    • Jan 24, 2017

    It was great for two months, then the handle broke. I still use it, but I will spend the money and get a better-made product. You get what you pay for. This item is cheaply made in my opinion.

    Listen to your reviews!

    • Madison, WI,
    • Jan 14, 2017

    I absolutely LOVE this mop, when it's working!

    I've gone through two buckets now because the foot pedal stops working and it won't spin. It did the same thing for both the buckets!

    FIX the spin issue, and it'll be the perfect mop! Now I'm without a mop until I can go buy one because this product has now broken twice on me and made me waste my money.

    Sincerely, a pissed off mom.

    Spin mop bucket

    • Chicago, IL,

    I enjoyed my spin mop until the bucket stop spinning. I have purchased 3 spin mops and all 3 buckets have stopped working. They need to come up with a better bucket.

    Don't waste your money

    The Hurricane Spin Mop is a good idea and works for a while. The cost does not equate to quality. The plastic attachment becomes brittle after a short time, cracks and breaks, rendering the mop completely useless.

    Customer service is useless. Save your money.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    It's okay but poorly made

    I bought this mop after using one that belongs to one of my friends. I loved the mop and ease of it but the mophead would never come clean and the foot pedal broke and it no longer usable.

    I did buy the rolling caddy for the bucket and loved being able to wheel it around but if it hit any type of bump at all the wheels would come off and break.

    While the concept is great, the quality is horrible. I bought mine at Bed Bath & Beyond with a coupon so I didn't take that hard of a hit but I will not buy another one.

    I will keep researching to see if there is a sturdier one out there somewhere.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Very disappointed

    I bought the Spin Mop for my wife last year at Walmart and it worked fine for a few months, then it just quit spinning. So thinking maybe it was just a defect, I went and purchased another one. Bad mistake! Now it has quit spinning also. Too much money wasted for nothing now. Very disappointed in this product.

    Bought 2 of these...

    Bought 2 of these and I love them, but BOTH of them quit spinning the mop in no time. The gears seem to be made of a bar plastic that wears out. Without the spin the mop is of no use unless you squeeze it out by hand just like an old fashioned mop.

    I figured maybe it was just a defect in the first one I purchased. I loved it so much I gave it another try by purchasing a second one. The SAME PROBLEM WITH IT.

    As much as it works, I cannot afford to keep purchasing something at $39.95 that wears out in such short time. Are there replacement parts available for the foot levers and gears? If not I will not buy another one.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Absolutely No Problems

    Was given the Hurricane 360 Spin Mop from a neighbor who was moving out of state and purchased it to clean a small area of linoleum in the apartment she was vacating, so almost brand new, 14 months ago.

    I have used it so much I've worn out the mop head! 60% of my home is tile or linoleum so I've put it to the test on all of its claims and have yet to be dissatisfied or disappointed.

    I have had no problems with bucket leaks or parts breaking, has never stopped working and after first use or so learned how to use it so it performed as advertised.

    Easiest & fastest time I've had mopping while cleaning my floors above any results achieved with a regular mop.

    I have and will continue bragging to friends and family about this mop.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
