Steam Mops

A steam mop is a self-contained steam cleaning system which superheats water up to 275 degrees before spraying it on a surface. This action kills almost every known kind of bacteria and is excellent for overall sanitation and cleanliness. Like traditional mops, these systems are best used on hardwood or tiled floors. These systems allow you to eliminate your entire cleaning arsenal and focus on the use of just 1 cleaning products for your floors.

PROS:

– No harsh chemicals
– Easy use
– No cost aside from water
– The cheapest steam cleaning option

CONS:

– Made specifically for floors and no other surfaces
– Very little flexibility

 

Handheld Steam Cleaners

Handheld steam cleaners are very similar to steam mops in that they allow you to create steam from the water in your tap in order to clean the surfaces of your home. Unlike steam mops, however, most of the systems come with handy cleaning attachments which allow for more flexibility around your home. This gives you the ability to clean most surfaces in your home (including your floors) using just 1 cleaning device.

PROS:

– Flexible solution to cleaning all surfaces of your home
– Bullet Point 2
– Bullet Point 1

CONS:

– Not as high-powered as some alternative steam cleaning methods
– Not able to clean fabrics

 

Vapour Steam Cleaners

Vapour steam cleaners are the ultimate steam cleaning systems. They allow for deep cleaning across any kind of surface using “dry steam”. Dry steam is an excellent steam cleaning solution where the deepest clean and least amount of leftover water is needed. It is ideal for cleaning indoor furniture, carpets and fabrics since the steam is able to dig into the material and loosen dirt, bacteria and viruses, destroy them, and leave very little moisture afterwards.

PROS:

– Deepest clean of all steam cleaners
– Can be used across any surface
– Leaves very little moisture behind after cleaning

CONS:

– Tends to be bulkier than most steam cleaning products
– Is typically the most expensive steam cleaning option
