Steam Clean Season

The summer of 2020, with all of its complications, is now coming to a close. The late August chill can mean so many things to so many different people. For some, it signals the need to store away Fourth of July napkins, citronella candles, and porch awnings as they bid their vacation homes goodbye. For others, it means a simple swapping of the couch pillows from those with seashells to those with autumn-colored leaves. And then, there are the many who own real estate and need to prepare properties for incoming tenants.

And that’s where steam cleaners come into the conversation. Pets who peed where they should not have. Those who cooked with gusto but left clean-up for another day, (and another…) Floors that lived under the feet of those who don’t like brooms, mops, or vacuums. And should we mention the stains on the couches?

Here are 3 machines that will go deep into the pores of almost everything you own. With coronavirus potentially lingering on everyone’s breath, you may want to make one of these purchases, regardless of where and how you live.

A Serious Steam Cleaner

The McCulloch has earned 4 1/2 stars on Amazon and is a great bang for your buck at $140. The 48-ounce water tank heats up in under eight minutes and provides up to 45 minutes of steam. Without the use of harsh chemicals, it will eliminate grease, grime, stains, and mold. This machine will work on ceramic tile, grout, granite, most flooring, outdoor furniture, appliances, fixtures, grills, autos, and more. It has a 15.7-foot power cord, a 9-foot steam hose, and an optional lockable trigger for continuous cleaning. There are 18 accessories including a floor mop, mop pads, nylon brushes, brass brush, scrub pad, and a squeegee.

A Mid-Priced Steam Cleaner

Pur Steam Mop Cleaner 10-in-1 is $90 and is an Amazon bestseller with a 4 1/2-star rating. Within 30 seconds, it will heat up to kill up to 99.99% of germs without the use of harsh chemicals. It works as a steam mop, carpet cleaner, handheld garment steamer, window, mirror, glass, tile, and grout cleaner, and much more. The tank can hold 11.5-ounces and can function for about 20 minutes on that reserve. 

Steam Cleaning on a Budget

If you desire that deep cleansing but don’t want to invest to that degree, consider the BISSELL Steam Shot Deluxe Hard-Surface Cleaner for just $40. This mini-might machine has 4 stars on Amazon, has a 6.6-ounce tank capacity, and a 20-ft-long power cord. Accessories include a nozzle, extension hose, flat scraping tool, grout brush, fabric steamer, window squeegee, angle concentrator, and a detail brush.
