There's no doubt that winter is tough on floors. Wet, snow-covered feet and muddy paws take their toll on carpet, hardwood, tile, and vinyl flooring throughout the cold-winter months when inclement weather is the norm.

Fortunately there are numerous cleaning tools available that are designed to keep all types of flooring looking great, no matter what's being tracked indoors. That's why we set out to find some great deals on vacuum cleaners, carpet cleaners, and steam mops to help make your wintertime floor cleaning chores a bit easier.

Here are our five favorites that are currently available at unbeatable prices.

1. Oreck Commercial XL Commercial Upright Vacuum Cleaner

We love the 35-foot cord that will cut down on the need to repeatedly plug it in and unplug it to reach distant areas. It self-adjusts to move easily from carpet to hard flooring, and does an excellent job on medium to low pile carpet and different types of hard surfaces.
