Did you know that a steam cleaner can help keep your home, clothes and vehicles clean and in tip-top shape? At Godfreys, we have a selection of floor steamers, clothes steamers and hand steam cleaners, all at very reasonable prices. But the question that needs to be answered is, do steam cleaners really work?
Do steam cleaners really
If you haven’t used a steam cleaner before, you might wonder whether they actually work or if it’s all just hype. The answer depends on your expectations. That’s because, rather than removing dirt like a carpet shampooer, these cleaners use water and heat (making steam) to loosen dirt and disinfect your floors, clothes and upholstery.
Steam is known to kill 99.99% of germs and bacteria, so these products are ideal for keeping your home healthy and clean. A floor steamer keeps your hard surfaces hygienically clean while a handheld steamer cleans your windows and glass shower screens, as well as the interior of your vehicles, curtains, microwave, oven, stove, BBQ, fridge and much more. Clothes steamers can be used to quickly remove stubborn creases and loosen dirt on your clothes.
How to use a handheld
If you want to know how to use a handheld steamer cleaner, it’s actually very easy. All you need to do is to fill the tank of your hand steam cleaner with clean water up to the mark, make sure the tank is sealed and placed it back into position. Don’t overfill the steamer and always keep body parts away from the steam nozzle.
Connect to the mains power and wait for steam to appear, then press the trigger button and glide the steam over the item that needs cleaning using a back and forth motion. If it’s glass, you can wipe the remnants of the steam and any dislodged dirt away with a clean cloth. Steam is a more environmentally friendly way to clean than using chemicals in your home.
