Having a good steam mop is important for keeping bare floors clean and sanitized - thanks to the hot steam, steam mops can kill up to 99.9% floor bacteria and germs, at least in lab tests. In real life, this percentage may be even better, if the cleaned area is heated for longer period of time.
However, not all floor types tolerate such cleaning, especially sensitive wooden floors, laminate floors etc. Also, unglazed ceramic floors and even unsealed marble floors can be damaged by steam mops if cleaned outside during cold weather - steam may penetrate the surface, form water droplets that may freeze into ice crystals that damage the unglazed ceramic and unsealed marble surface.
Note: Granite and marble are not the same - granite surface features almost no pores, so it can be cleaned with steam mops even if the floors are outside...
If unsure, check with the manufacturer, if your floor is certified for cleaning with the steam mops.
