Steam cleaner comparison 2021

6. The most important questions and answers about the steam cleaner comparison

6.1. How does a steam cleaner work?

Steam cleaners and steam vacuums work with steam and pressure. Inside, water is heated to at least 100 degrees Celsius. The resulting water vapor can be directed through a nozzle onto dirty surfaces at the push of a button. This loosens dirt particles.

6.2. Can mites be removed from the mattress with a steam cleaner?

There are various steam devices and attachments so that you can even use some of them to clean upholstered furniture.

The removal of mites with a steam cleaner belongs to the realm of myth. The idea is obvious, but we strongly advise against cleaning mattresses with a steam cleaner. When cleaning with a steam cleaner, too much liquid gets into the interior of the mattress. This can lead to mold that is barely noticeable from the outside.

6.3. Which surfaces and objects can be cleaned with a steam cleaner?

Basically, you can treat almost all surfaces with a steam cleaner. However, you should exercise caution with sensitive materials to let. Steam cleaners are particularly suitable for indoor and outdoor tiles as well as for glass surfaces. But there are also, for example, steam cleaners for upholstery, steam cleaners for carpets, steam cleaners for windows, steam cleaners for the bathroom and industrial steam cleaners.

6.4. Which materials should be used with caution?

Use the steam cleaner carefully for upholstered furniture as well as for laminate and parquet. These materials must never be cleaned too damp.

6.5. Should I borrow the steam cleaner?

Borrowing equipment such as a steam cleaner always makes sense if the equipment is rarely used. So think twice about using the device more often. With regular use, the one-time investment in the device is more worthwhile than the rental fee that is incurred every time the steam cleaner is rented.
