Top 9 Reasons to Invest in a Steam Cleaner

Why You Should Buy a Steam Cleaner

Steam cleaners can be expensive products, especially if you’re looking for one that provides the best quality of cleaning. Buying a steam cleaner is an investment for you, your home and your family, and there are many reasons why you should bite the bullet and buy one for your house. If you’re thinking about purchasing a steam cleaner then have a look at the top nine reasons as to why you should.

1)    Bacteria.
Steam cleaning is perhaps the most efficient way to kill bacteria in your home. The heat created by your steam cleaner will kill over 99.9% of germs in a matter of seconds, and, unlike with traditional liquid antibacterial cleaners, there’s no scrubbing, mopping or blotting to get rid of excess product. Using a steam cleaner to kill bacteria is also great if you share your home with people with breathing difficulties, asthma, or those who are sensitive to chemical cleaning smells.

2)    Kitchen uses.
A steam cleaner is an extremely versatile product. In the kitchen, you can use it to sanitise most sideboards (be wary of solid wood), floors and tiled walls. A steam cleaner is great for bacteria-busting your bins as well.

3)    Bathroom uses.
Tiled floors, walls, linoleum and laminate are all suitable for steam cleaning. A quick blast onto grout will help combat mould and mildew stains as well.

4)    Bedroom uses.
Steam cleaning is a great way to refresh mattresses, duvets and quilts. It’s a proven method of fighting bed-bugs, but can also be used on curtains and carpets too.

5)    Living room uses.
As in the bedroom, steam cleaning is a great option for soft furnishings. Sofas, carpets, rugs, curtains and cushions will all benefit from a quick spritz with a steam cleaner.

6)    Fast.
Using a steam cleaner is a much faster alternative to traditional cleaning methods. You can even use it to get the creases out of your clothes in less than half the time it takes to use an iron.

7)    Efficient.
Steam cleaning is proven to be one of the most effective methods of cleaning your home. Not only is it faster than what you’re probably used to, but steam cleaning is going to provide a better level of sanitation for you, your home and your family. This is especially important if you live with young children or pets.

8)    Good replacement for tricky jobs.
Steam cleaning can and will make quick work of tricky jobs. Blotting at troublesome carpet stains can be time-consuming, but a steam cleaner will make quick work of even the toughest of stains. Many steam cleaners come with a variety of nozzles and attachments suitable for many different purposes in and around your house. If you’re looking to buy one make sure to choose one with a variety of different available attachments so you can get the most for your money.

9)    Pets and children.
Children’s plastic toys can be a breeding ground for germs, but a steam cleaner is a fast and easy way to put a stop to this. Even some soft toys can be steam-cleaned without causing any damage, making it the perfect addition to your home if you have, or live with, young children. If you live with pets then you can make quick work of your dog or cat’s bed, leaving it fresh-smelling and germ-free. A steam cleaner will also help to combat fleas and ticks should your pets be prone to them.
