Useful advice to acquirer a steam cleaner

Type of steam cleaners

As we have mentioned before, there are 2 types of steam cleaners, excluding the industrial one's. The handheld or portable are small in size, and useful for a daily superficial clean. The floor steam cleaners or normal ones were designed for more tedious chores and they look very much like a vacuum cleaner.

Water pressure

It is important to know that all steam cleaners work by using water vapour. For this reason it is vital to choose a steam cleaner with powerful water pressure to ensure that the appliance is really efficient. Therefore the minimum is 3 to 4 pressure bars.

Reservoir capacity and power output

Another important element to consider when buying a steam cleaner is it own capacity, this will influence the time needed to clean and whether is user-friendly. The best reservoir capacity is more than 1 litre.

The power output is a fundamental aspect in the choice of these cleaning  appliances, it has to have enough power to be able to do the chores it is used for.

Extras

However, a high quality steam cleaner  comes with a vast range of accessories, which help optimize their function. In general they come with a special brush for upholstery, a brush for clothes, a pressure gun, window cleaner and a spatula. The more expensive models usually have an iron as well.

Steam regulator

Lastly, but not least, is the autonomy of the appliance. Some steam cleaners have a modern function, although they are more expensive, which is a control that regulates the amount of steam emitted during the usage of the appliance, which can be adjusted according to the surface to be cleaned. Also there is a luminous indicator that will tell you when the water has finished.

From this point on, and with all these practical advice, you can start to look for the steam cleaner you have always dreamed of. However, we recommend you continue reading so you can also know all the advantages and disadvantages of each type of steam cleaner, so you know which are the best places to purchase cheap steam cleaners and which brand name is the most convenient.

Floor steam cleaner or hand-held steam cleaner: Which is the winner?

Although, the amazing discounts available online are often worthwhile, especially when it comes to hand-held steam cleaners.

On the other hand, the big department stores like CurrysJohn Lewis or Argos have the advantage of stoking brand names like Polti to and Kärcher at reasonable prices, but it is common for these type of department stores to promote second grade brand names or even their own brand name, ending up with the same situation as on Amazon or eBay. In this case, the best way to avoid any inconveniences is to take a good look at the recommendations and opinions of people who have already tried these unknown brand steam cleaners at home.
