Why buy a steam cleaner and how do they work?
They're usually across the home, whether it's for cleaning tiled flooring, oven hobs, windows, furniture, countertops and mattresses.
Steam cleaners can clean and sanitise surfaces without the need for harsh chemicals or detergents. They have a sealed boiler which heats up water and turns it into steam vapour. The steam is then applied to the surface that you are cleaning, loosening and removing any dirt it finds. As only water is used, steaming is safe for allergy sufferers, children and pets and plants.
