What is Steam mop

steam mopBlended in are the days of hauling out a big pail of water to wipe up the floor. I’ve never used my steam cleaner for anything other than tile, but I lately came across some big ideas for putting it to solve on an amazing array of other matters! A standard steam mop, like the one shown above, should make for a portion of the peaks you’ll find below. Yet, I have also read some awesome reviews of the HomeRight Steam Machine. It causes dozens of attachments for all varieties of different cleaning jobs. After composing this post, I may only have to set up one!

Before we start into the rest of the place, I wanted to throw a few words of caution for using a steam cleaner…

  • Do not apply a steam cleaner on painted walls, waxed or polished items, unsealed floors (hardwood, cork, unglazed tile), melodic instruments, nylon mesh screens or antiques.
  • Don’t tarry too long on wood or any painted surfaces to avoid warping or staining the item.
  • If you have hard water, use distilled water in your steamer.
