Benefits Of Steam Cleaning

Benefits of Steam Cleaning

Rumour has it that ‘steam cleaning’ was discovered in Europe only about 20 years ago when a pub landlord used steam from the cappuccino machine to clean lipstick from a wine glass. Boom, steam cleaning was born. I’m not sure how accurate or inaccurate this information may be, but regardless it makes for a nice little anecdote!

Anyway there are obvious advantages to using steam to clean, and three that top the list are:

More Effective Cleaning

A steam cleaner will use plain old tap water and produce superheated dry steam with the help of an electric pressure valve. Because the temperature is so high, many surfaces can be returned to their original splendour, eliminating stains, grease and grime as well any surface bacteria.

Environmentally Friendly and Healthier Than Chemicals

Using steam alone has been proven to kill up to 98% of bacteria that lives on surfaces whilst cleaning. It’s a powerful antibacterial without the addition of potentially harmful chemicals. Steam can also be used to clean mattresses and other furniture where ‘bedbugs’ and dust mites inhabit. People who suffer allergies to these creepy crawlies will notice benefits without the side effect of irritating chemical residues that may trigger allergic reactions.

Saves Some Dosh

Because steam cleaning will work on almost every surface in the home with the same result, you’ll be able to cut back on alternative cleaning products and tools.

Make sure you’ve got the right machine and attachments for your home depending on what you’re most likely to clean. Steam can be used to clean all of the following:

  • Kitchen floor
  • Kitchen appliances
  • Bathroom floor
  • Toilets
  • Sinks & taps
  • Shower cubicles
  • Tiling
  • Carpets & upholstery
  • Wood & laminate flooring
  • Curtains
  • Mattresses
  • Car upholstery
  • Windows

Ok, not to get too ‘salesy’ here or anything but given the above benefits I can’t help but promote the spares we have listed on the site for you to all get steaming! (Cleaning, not drunk that is.) Spares and accessories for many makes and models of steam cleaners can be found on eSpares.
