How Does Steam Cleaning Work?

Steam cleaning has been on the market for many years, but even so there are many people who do not know how it works and doubt its effectiveness with respect to the more traditional cleaning of chemical products. In this article we will describe what steam cleaning consists of and we will evaluate its advantages and disadvantages.

How Does Steam Cleaning Work?

To perform a cleaning of this type we need a steam cleaning machine . There are two types;

Hot and dry steam cleaners : The water is heated to the boiling point and then they start to produce steam. This process takes only a few minutes for each liter of water. If you use hot water directly, the process is faster.

Cold and wet steam cleaners : these machines work without boiling water, so the steam is not hot, but it is very humid. The disadvantage is that they use more water than the hot steam machine and do not eliminate fungi and bacteria due to the water temperature.

At the time of cleaning, we simply have to apply steam choosing the type of accessory that best suits the surface we are going to clean. Although the steam dries itself, it is advisable to wipe it after the application to collect the dirt that has been descaled by the steam.

What Are The Advantages Of Steam Cleaning?

Steam cleaning not only disinfects , but also frees us from bad odors and eliminates mold . Besides being an ecological system , because you do not need additional detergents, it is also very useful in the kitchen because it acts as a great degreaser and eliminator of bacteria . It is also highly recommended for people with mite allergies as it manages to eliminate them better than using other cleaning products that contain chemical particles that are harmful to the body, as well as aggressive to the environment.

Steam cleaning covers a large number of surfaces such as floors, walls, fabrics, carpets, windows, mirrors, upholstery, …. allowing a more thorough cleaning because it reaches normally inaccessible areas.
