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.

    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

    Sucks

    Made the mistake of buying two of these. The mop doesn't pick up as much as it claims, doesn't clean corners, the spinner sticks so it doesn't spin, and the mop head doesn't get clean even in the washing machine!

    After washing it still has lint, and clumps of dog and cat hair stuck to it. And there is NO Customer service number to call that I've been able to find. Big waste if money!

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

    Replace the bucket or refund money

    I bought this Hurricane Spin Mop and it worked well until the pedal broke. I'm a 67 year old lady and couldn't afford to purchase this, but I did to help me out with bending over to mop. How little did I know that it wasn't going to work out for me. The thing about it is that the company did say they would refund the money, but there is no contact number to get in touch with someone. All I want them to do is either give me an opportunity to get the part, or replace the bucket or refund my money.

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

    Happy with my Spin Mop

    I hear that there are a lot of people who have given this Mop a bad review. I'm a grandmother, and I have a husband, dogs and 6 grandchildren. I love this Spin Mop, its light weight, and is easy to use, and to store. I keep mine out though, because we have a pool, and when everyone gets out, there is water and dirt, especially after the kids run around in the grass. It's so easy to do the mopping, and keeping everything nice and clean. I know that some people don't use it like I do, and I just think people expect too much from cleaning products. I think it's a wonderful cleaning tool. I did buy extra heads, and it is easy to change, and I just throw the dirty one in the washer. It's that easy to keep floors clean all year, rain, snow or pool. It has been good for my family, and everyone has one. Thank you for listening.

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

    Don't waste your money

    • Dallas, Oregon,
    • Feb 13, 2016

    I purchased the Hurricane 360 Spin Mop at Wal-Mart in the "As seen on TV" aisle. I did not realize it does not have two compartments for water, one for clean and one to catch the dirty water after spinning. All dirty water goes into the container, which means one has to have another household bucket to get clean water from. There are less expensive spin mop units around to spin the mop dry. I would caution people to think twice about allotting this much money for this mop.

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

    No Spin Zone

    Don't waste your money! It's cheaply made. The peddle gets stuck and the mop stops spinning.

    This is the biggest garbage I've ever used.

    • North East U.S.,

    This mop is a waste of hard earned money. What a scam. I'm better off cleaning my floors on my hands and knees with a dirty rag. This is total garbage.
