Multi-purpose steam cleaners are usually high end steamers and can clean and sanitize almost
anything.Normaly they have a wide array of attachments and accessories included with the main unit,
which make the unit as an all-purpose cleaning machine.Let us have a look at some of the most important
factors to consider before making a purchase:
Consider the power of the
If you want a multi-purpose steamer, then it is safe to assume that you will use it to clean
not just your floor and carpet but also other areas of the house as well as furnishings.
That is why it is very important to consider the quality of the heating system of the unit in order
to fully maximize the product’s performance.
As a rule of thumb, it would be best if you can buy a steamer with higher wattage.A steamer with
higher wattage can produce hotter steam so you can clean and sanitize almost everything in your house.
So a 1,300-watt steamer could outperform an 800-watt steamer in terms of heat intensity.
The downside, of course, is that a steamer with higher wattage will also cost you more money.
Indicators and Controls
If possible, you need to choose a steam cleaner that has heat indicators, cleaning control,
and water level indicator.
Normally, you need to preheat the steamer for at least 30 seconds to 3 minutes.You should not use
the machine the moment you power it on because you can not get sufficient steam if you do this.
The trouble with other standard steam cleaner is you have to guess if it is ready to produce steam.
In order to avoid guessing and prevent damaging your product, an indicator light would be very useful.
It is also best to choose a machine that has a switch for controlling the delivery of steam.So if
you clean the floor or carpet, you can easily put the steamer on full power. But if you are going to
steam clean garments, furniture, or clothing, simply switch the steamer to minimum in order not to
damage delicate materials.
Attachments that Are Needed
The accessories and attachments of your steamer are critical.They are what makes the device
multi-functional.Your multi-purpose steamer should therefore include a reusable micro fiber for
cleaning hard wood surfaces. A carpet brush on the other hand will be useful for cleaning and
sanitizing the carpet.
Make sure that nylon brush, brass brush, and fabric brush are included so you can clean and
sanitize metal, tiles, and garments.Nozzle attachments are also important.You will use these
nozzles to clean hard to reach areas, furniture, and windows.A steam jet nozzle attachments will be
very useful in cleaning car interior,barbeque grills, ovens,and patios.
Storage, Maneuverability and Power Source
It would best if your steam cleaner unit had a built-in storage area for all attachments and
accessories. You must also choose a steamer with long power cord. The cord should be long enough so
you can clean a wider area of the house without disconnecting the unit from the power outlet.
The unit should have caster wheels so you can easily move the unit from room to room.The mop head
of the steam cleaner should be movable so you can clean corner areas, nooks, and narrow floor areas
