If you need steam cleaning it’s time to call in the professionals, right?

Wrong!

Steam cleaning used to be a “specialised personnel only” job, but these days it’s for each and ever one of us.

FAQ:

Q: Why should I buy a steam cleaner?

There are quite a lot of benefits arguing for having a steam cleaner in your home.

The first, and most obvious one, is money. Hiring professionals to deep clean floors, steam clean fabrics and sanitise anything from your BBQ grill to your car seats costs a ton of money. Money you can safe by buying a steam cleaner and just get things done yourself. On your very own timeline.

Another big reason to use a steam cleaner is hygiene. Yes, mopping floors is great, and yes, vacuum cleaners and/or air purifiers with inbuilt HEPA filters go a long way when sanitising your home, but there is nothing that comes even close to the cleaning and sanitising power of pressurised hot steam.

And another reason is versatility. As we have mentioned, you can clean just about anything indoors and outdoors with a steam cleaner. And it’s not just “hard surface” stuff we are talking about. Think your sofa; or mattresses; and pet beds!

Q: How does steam cleaning work?

The basic concept behind steam cleaning is the idea that shooting highly pressurised hot water vapours is a lot more effective than just dousing stuff in water or vacuuming things up.

And that is absolutely the case. Hot, moist steam loosens dried up and stuck dirt; it also kills off 99% of the germs and viruses that can be found anywhere from floors to bathroom appliances; it also creeps into fabrics and works its magic there; and it can be used for any task you would usually use water for (mopping floors, cleaning windows, etc.).

Simply put: steam cleaning equals professional, super-hygienic deep cleaning.

Q: What do I need to keep in mind when buying a steamer?

A couple of things come to mind:

  • Tank size: the bigger the tank, the longer the cleaning time in one session
  • Heat-up time: how long does it take for the device to be ready; how long are you prepared to wait
  • Cleaning duration: how long uninterrupted cleaning time does the steamer give you?
  • Versatility: which attachments are there; does it come with additional uses (e.g.: wrinkle steamer); is it easy to transport –> in other words: can it do what you want it to do?
  • Range of motion and use: is there a handheld option? how long is the power cord?
  • General use: which surfaces can the device be used on? are attachments/options for your floors/surfaces included? is there an option to toggle continuous steam without having to push a button the whole time?
