Water: one of the most versatile elements we know. Indispensable when cleaning your home. But did you know that steam - i.e. evaporated water - can also be used to clean very effectively? The effect of steam is sometimes even more amazing than what a little water can do! That's why a steam cleaner is the best option for some jobs. We tell you why.
How does a steam cleaner work?
A steam cleaner is a device that uses a relatively simple technique. But as simple as that technique is, as surprisingly effective is the result. A steam cleaner, as the name suggests, uses the cleaning power of steam. The cleaner allows water in a reservoir to rise to high temperatures, after which you can use the hot dry steam to loosen dirt, as it were. The combination of heat and steam does wonders for stubborn and caked-on dirt. This happens in a matter of seconds. And the best part: no detergents are needed! This method is 100% natural. The hot steam also kills bacteria.
What can you clean with a steam cleaner?
You can use a steam cleaner to clean all kinds of surfaces. The appliance is excellent for thoroughly cleaning, for example, fabric furniture or curtains that you cannot get clean with a normal cloth or mop. The steam penetrates the fabric and removes the dirt. Joints, where, for example, algae or lime has formed, are also easy to clean with a steam cleaner. Think of the bathroom or kitchen sink. You can also use it to clean smooth surfaces, such as windows and mirrors.
What are the advantages of steam cleaning?
There are many! By working with a steam cleaner, you are environmentally aware. You only use water that is heated so much that it becomes steam. No other cleaning agents or chemicals are needed, so you are working 'green'. In addition, a steam cleaner works more thoroughly than a cloth or other cleaning tool. The result is much more hygienic, because you disinfect at the same time. The hot steam kills bacteria. And finally: you are done quickly. Cleaning with a steam cleaner only takes a few minutes!
