The machine comes with a ten-year warranty- that you need to receive directly from Oreck or an approved Oreck supplier, and the build quality means it only requires a little maintenance, which together gives you total peace of mind.

And let’s not forget the accessories. 

So you can clean, polish, or scrub with maximum ease and minimum fuss, there is a comprehensive range of accessories, pads, bonnets, and brushes available for your ORB700MB, allowing you to customize your cleaning requirements.

However, with regards to choosing which pad, bonnet, or brush is right for any particular floor, there doesn’t seem to be an exact science. So we suggest the rule of thumb goes something like this,

Bonnets are best suited for surface cleaning and polishing most floor types, including carpets. They are washable and reusable.

Pads, well, they’re great for scrubbing and polishing flat surfaces. They’re designed to be porous and have an open-weave, so they pick up the loosened dirt. For ease of use, all pads are reversible for multiple purposes. To help you select the right pad for the right job. Pads are color-coded depending on how aggressive they are. White is the softest, followed by blue medium aggressive, and brown being the most aggressive.

Brushes work well for getting into all kinds of recesses in non-flat surfaces, like kitchen and bathroom floor tiles, where the bristles can get into and clean out the grout lines. Plus, large floor areas and work with most flooring types.

Remember to choose a pad or brush that is aggressive enough to get the job done but gentle enough not to damage the floor or surface. You’ll need to use a bit of common sense.

For example, don’t use a brown striped pad (aggressive) on a wood floor (soft floor). Start with what is safe and move to a more aggressive accessory, if it’s needed.

Besides brushes, pads, and bonnets there is a handy range of tailor-made cleaning solutions available from Oreck for your ORB700MB each one has been developed to deliver perfect results every time on all types of flooring, and these include

The Oreck Dry Carpet Cleaning System is the easiest and most effective way to keep your carpet and rugs looking clean and beautiful without water. While cleaning, your children and pets can walk around. The complete cleaning process is very short. Vacuum up the dirt, and you can walk on your dry-cleaned carpets immediately.

For Laminate, Vinyl, and Linoleum and hardwood floors but not waxed hardwood floors, Surface Cleaning Timberworks restores the natural beauty of all your hard flooring.

On wood floors, Oreck Wood Floor Cleaner is ideal for refinishing the polyurethane coating hardwood floors. However, this procedure is not designed to delete the old polyurethane, but to smooth out imperfections and prime the floor ready for a new fresh coating.

For restoring marble, then Michelangelo’s Marble Restorer polishing cream is a unique blend of micro-abrasives that safely restores the stone’s natural crystalline structure to rejuvenate the shine the marble once had. It will safely and effectively revive dull marble surfaces, light surface scratches, abrasions, etch marks, shower wall streaks, watermarks, and glass rings

When it comes to removing oil, dirt, and grease from Concrete or for cleaning Asphalt, Greaselock Absorbent Powder effectively and safely cleans without using solvents. That can be safely discarded or rinsed away after being used.

But is it the right machine for me?

When it comes to Oreck and, in particular, the ORB700MB multi-purpose all in one-floor cleaner, scrubber, and polishing machine, then that’s a challenging question to answer.

We think that for home cleaning – this machine is not for commercial use. It ticks all the right boxes; not only is it incredibly stylish and quiet, but also amazingly versatile. It is, in our opinion, the very best cleaning machine for laminates, the best home tile and grout cleaning machine, the best hardwood cleaner, and when it comes to dry carpet cleaning, there’s no competition. Yes, it’s a worthwhile investment.

Is there a downside – Yes? We did find the machine to be a little heavy. At nearly 30lbs, that’s a lot of weight to struggle up and downstairs with, and of course, there are the issues that like all Oreck floor cleaning machines, the ORB700MB does not come with any pads, bonnets or brushes. These have to be purchased separately.

How about the price?

There is no doubt a mop and bucket are considerably cheaper, but we think that when compared to similar machines from other manufacturers, we found the price of the ORB700MB to be very affordable.

FAQs

Does the ORB700MB come with pad holder and starter pads?
Unfortunately, not all pads, bonnets, and brushes along with the various cleaning solutions doe need to be purchased separately.

I'm going to be stripping and sanding off some hardwood floors that probably haven't been touched for about the last 50 years - do you think this machine is up to the task?
Wow, that sounds like you’ve got your work cut out for you. We don’t think this is the best machine for such a daunting task. The ORB700MB is much more of a lightweight sander and polisher than the heavy-duty orbital sander like what you require for this type of job. Don’t forget your safety goggles and mask.

Can I clean granite floors with this machine?
Yes, it’s ideal for stone quarry tiles and concrete floors. Just make sure to select the right pad or brush you need to complete your job.

What do I need to buy to work with my machine to clean my marble bathroom floors?
Use a soft bonnet along with Oreck recommended Michaelangelo’s Marble Restorer polishing cream is a unique blend of micro-abrasives that safely restores the stone’s natural crystalline structure to rejuvenate the shine the marble once had.

Which is the best brush to use to clean my painted concrete garage floor?
We would recommend that you use the orange stiff bristle brush on painted concrete floors. It works great for this type of project.

Is the Oreck ORB700MB is to handle?
This machine is straightforward to use and handles much more comfortable than a large commercial unit, which can be a beast. My female colleague used both and found the Oreck is excellent for simple tasks like mild scrubbing or waxing.

In our villa, we only have tiled floors is this any good for cleaning and polishing them daily?
The Oreck ORB700MB is at its best for this type of job. If the floors have really stuck on stuff- use the orange bristle heads. You can use the green scratch pads for light dirt. Use the white polishing heads/pads for shining, and you can use a soft bonnet for polishing and buffing as well. I hope that answers your question.

What size brush do I need?
You need to purchase the Oreck 10.5″ brush for this particular machine. Because the machine uses a random orbiting motion designed to prevent brush marks, swirls, and sanding marks, you enjoy a full 13″ cleaning path.
