Why Steam Cleaners Are Great

Steam is natural and thorough

Simple, biologically clean and environmentally friendly: steam cleaning is the most natural way of cleaning – and therefore the ideal alternative to conventional cleaning. It can be used in many different ways and, in addition to cleaning, steam can also be used for ironing and textile care. In this way, steam saves you valuable time, which you can use for other purposes. So what could be more natural than using the power of steam for small and large household tasks?

How steam cleaning makes our lives easier

Long before a person thought about cleanliness, water vapor was created on earth – in volcanoes and geysers. But it was not until after 1700 that the time was ripe for the practical use of steam. An extremely modern practical application of steam is steam cleaning. Of course, it doesn’t work for everything. For example, if you want to clean the interior of your car, better get a vacuum for car detailing. However, a steam cleaner does work quite nicely to clean tires!

Environmentally friendly

It’s quite clear: cleaning with steam is cleaning without chemicals. The combination of steam power and temperature alone dissolves stubborn dirt and thus makes cleaning agents superfluous. This protects not only our livelihood, water, but also your household budget.

Steam cleaning also relieves nature and resources in other respects: For example, the disposal of the packaging material of cleaning agents is no longer necessary – which ultimately saves energy and raw materials.

In addition, water is extremely economical as cleaning with steam: one liter of normal tap water turns into around 1700 liters of steam! This is enough for about 20 minutes of steam cleaning – sufficient for the complete cleaning of a smaller apartment. And since electricity is only needed when heating up, its consumption is also kept within limits.

Why is cleaning with steam healthier?

Cleaning with steam protects yourself and your family. In contrast to cleaning solutions, steam condensate does not leave any potentially allergenic residues on the cleaned surface. This is particularly important for small children who like to put objects in their mouths. Accidents caused by the incorrect use of a cleaning agent, skin irritations or other health impairments caused by cleaning substances are no longer an issue with steam.

Allergy sufferers also breathe a sigh of relief. Since the steam binds dust and thus no allergens (house dust mites and their excretions) are whirled up, the room climate improves noticeably. And last but not least, the physical exertion when cleaning with steam is considerably lower – because you simply let the steam work for you.

Cleaning tile floors

For intermediate cleaning or after cleaning, please use a cloth which you fold up and tighten tightly in the floor nozzle. You can also use the microfibre cloth (optional accessory) for thorough cleaning. For floors, a steam mop for cleaning is a great solution.

Slide the nozzle back and forth quickly after releasing the steam, whereby you do not have to add steam permanently. In order to keep joints clean, you should not only move the nozzle across the joint but also diagonally to it.

Suction: We recommend vacuuming the floors before steam cleaning. Only work on laminate floors if you are sure that they have been professionally laid and glued.

Cleaning windows and mirrors

  • Before using a steam cleaner for the first time, first carry out the basic cleaning: Rub the discs completely with a hand nozzle and steam cloth. Winter tip: If the windows are very cold, preheat them from a distance of about 5 cm.
  • Then use the spot jet nozzle to evaporate the glass surface from top to bottom.
  • Then use the puller to pull the “steam water” down in several lanes. To prevent streaking, wipe the rubber lip dry with a cloth from time to time.
  • If there are still some residual water drops on the surface when removing with the rubber lip – no problem. You can wipe them off with the cloth easily and without streaks.
