Steam floor cleaner: how does it work?
If when you talk about steam cleaning you think about huge and complicated tools and accessories, maybe you still do not know the new generation of steam floor cleaners.
Born as a natural evolution of the steam mop or traditional scrubber, this small gem of a home appliance exploits the natural sanitizing power of steam to thoroughly clean all the washable surfaces of the house. How does it work? Simply fill the tank with tap water, and apply a microfibre cloth to the mop plate: after about 10 seconds the floor cleaner is ready to be used.
The warm, and steamy cloth is able to remove and retain the most stubborn dirt (including grease stains), eliminating germs and bacteria. The best steam floor cleaners on the market at the moment are those without cord (cordless), with articulated and ultra-light brush to easily reach even the most inaccessible corners.

Tips for cleaning with floor cleaners
For a perfect cleaning with the steam floor cleaner, just follow a few simple tips that will allow you to fully benefit from all the advantages of this innovative system.
The first thing to do is making sure you have removed all the dust from the floors or surfaces that you are going to clean with steam: the dust, once in contact with the steam of the cloth, tends to fix on the surfaces, making cleaning more difficult. To get a better result, we recommend that you use the vacuum cleaner or an electrostatic dust catcher beforehand, just as you would before using the traditional floor cleaner or mop.
Another useful tip for impeccable results is to frequently change and wash the microfiber cloth in the washing machine before using it again. Finally, always remember to follow all the instructions of the manufacturer, respecting the guidance on the amount of water and the type of microfibre cloth to use.
