The Advantages of Using Steam in Cleaning

Thorough

Steam is able to get deep into the pores of surfaces. Dirt and grime are sticky substances, and the heat and moisture of the steam help break those adhesive bonds and make it easier to wipe gunk away. Steam cleaning also works well on grease and oily substances.

Natural Sanitizer and Deodorizer

Steam cleaning kills bacteria, viruses, dust mites and mold spores. These microscopic infiltrators are one of the largest sources of illness and odor. Dust mites and mold are major allergy contributors and can be difficult to remove completely. Steam works to kill these microbes on contact and makes it easy to dispose of their residue.

Non-Chemical

Steam cleaning is an effective method for cleaning that uses no chemicals. Steam cleaning is non-toxic and is safe for children and pets afterward because there is no chemical residue. This is ideal for those who are looking to reduce the amount of toxic chemicals in their home environments.

Easy to Use

Steam cleaners are a tool anyone can use. You fill the reservoir in your steam cleaning equipment with plain water and the water is heated. The steam runs through a hose to a cleaning tool and does not come into contact with hands or other body parts. When the water boils away, you refill the reservoir with clean water.
