Steam cleaners offer an eco-friendly alternative to using chemical-based solutions or bacteria-filled sponges. A steam clean employs high-powered water vapour to get rid of grime and leave your home sparkling.
As more and more people seek environmentally-friendly ways to go about their daily routines, steam cleaners have grown in popularity. This is because steam cleaners, a vacuum that uses powerful steam to destroy dirt, remove germs, and penetrate microscopic pores, offer a more sustainable alternative to chemical-based cleaning solutions. Let's answer a few common questions about steam cleaners and see if this green-minded appliance is right for your grime-removal needs.
Unlike most conventional mops and vacuums, steam cleaners are not limited in their application. They can be used on hardwood floors, linoleum, and wall-to-wall carpeting, for example. Because steam cleaners use a water-based method of cleaning, you don't have to worry about protecting wood flooring from the kind of damage chemicals can cause. Steam cleaners can also be used on vertical surfaces like blinds and window frames, as well as smaller jobs such as jewelry and sports equipment.
A primary consideration before purchasing a steam cleaner should be the size of water tank. As previously mentioned, steam cleaners function by creating high-powered steam using its internal boilers. The bigger the tanks, the more area you can cover, thus the longer you can use it in one cleaning session. So if you plan on cleaning the whole house, then a dual tank is recommended. Because you're dealing with vapour that reaches temperatures of 100 degrees Celsius, consider safety features like automatic overheat shutoff and child safety locks.
Generally speaking, the size of your home should dictate which of these options is right for you. If you're living in a condo or small house, then a steam mop or handheld can serve as a perfect cleaning go-to. This can be used for floors, counters, windows, and upholstery. For larger homes, cylinders can carry more water and clean larger surfaces. Plus, they have extensive options for attachments to get into a variety of spaces where grime lives.
