First, what exactly do we mean when we say, “Steam Cleaner?” It is a tool that uses a combination of heat and water to lift dirt and grime and kill germs and bacteria on just about any surface in your home.
You can use your steam cleaneing machine on tile or carpet, and it can be even be used in areas of the home that you wouldn’t expect, like curtains, car interiors, and even outdoor grills.
The best part of the tool would have to be the fact that it is all natural, requiring no chemicals whatsoever to make your home cleaner than it has ever been before.
How to Use the Steam Cleaner
Now that you understand why you should want a steaming cleaner, we will take a look at how to use it once you do finally add one to your cleaning arsenal.
Step 1: Dress to Protect Yourself
As mentioned in the last section, using a steam cleaner really is pretty simple. First things first, you are going to want to wear protective clothing. The same steam that is hard on dirt and germs can also be hard on your exposed skin areas, so do be sure to cover up where needed before utilizing your new cleaning helper.
You will also want to keep in mind that you should take a break immediately if you notice that your eyes are getting agitated as you do your cleaning.
Step 2: Add water in your Tank
Once you have ensured that you are properly dressed you will add water to the tank of your steam-cleaner.
Step 3: Apply the Steam to the to-be-clearned Surface
Allow the unit to heat up, and then apply the steam of the device to whatever surface you wish to clean as per the instructions of your unit.
Once you have applied the steam to the surface, you will then need to either wipe it down with a different leaning tool, or vacuum it up, depending on whether you were cleaning carpet or tile. Remember that steam lifts dirt but it does not remove it.
You can use this process in your car, on your furniture, and on most surfaces.
Benefits of Using a Steam Cleaner
We will now take a look at a few of the top benefits of using a steam appliance.
Let’s just start with my favorite benefit, shall we? Cleaning chemicals can be harsh both on your floors and countertops and on the overall health of your pets and family members. With the steaming cleaner, all you are really using is…steam. Water that has been heated to an extreme temperature.
The cleaning mechanism is simple and free of anything that could possibly do you or your family harm. If you want the most natural cleaning technique possible, there really is no beating the steam-cleaner.
Another thing that you are sure to love about your steaming machine is that it is very versatile. You can use it to instantly work out the dirt and grime built up on tiler, or embedded in the carpet. You can also use it to clean your curtains, your car, or your backyard grill.
And, if you are a do it yourselfer, you can even use a steam cleaner to easily remove wallpaper. The only surface of the home that a steam cleaner is not so great with is hardwoods, which of course do best with minimum exposure to moisture.
Hardwood flooring aside, it is an excellent product that will do well anywhere else in your home.
The cost of individual steam cleaners is going to of course vary, but the price of the unit itself isn’t actually what I mean when I say that the product is affordable anyway.
Keep in mind that all you need to work your steam cleaner is water. While other products require plenty of expensive cleaning chemicals to use, using the steam mop is basically free.
Of course, none of these features would matter at all if the steam-cleaner did not work well, correct? Fortunately, it really does. The hot steam that the steam cleaner releases is able to sanitize or even sterilize any surface meaning you can count on just about all of the germs and bacteria being eliminated each time you clean.
It is also really great at eliminating dirt. No, it doesn’t suck up dirt and grime the way that vacuums do, nor does it absorb it the way that mops do. What it does is bring dirt and grime to the surface so that it can be easily vacuumed or wiped up.
It’s Easy To Use:
We will break down how to use the steam cleaner in the next section, but it is also worth noting now that this tool really is easy to utilize, and most homeowners should be able to make it work with little to no difficulty.
If you can’t tell, the take away here is that in our opinion, there is no better way to improve the appearance and overall cleanliness of your home than by investing in a steam cleaner.
