In various forums you can also read about how violently disappointed many buyers of a steam cleaner are. The steam cleaner is certainly a useful tool for cleaning and cleaning.

... what you can clean with the steam cleaner

The problem is often supposed test pages and product descriptions, which have the character of a sustainable evaluation. Often, however, it is only the marketing idea behind it. Perhaps it can only be explained that especially in the network numerous supposed product reviews highlight the steam cleaner as a real all-rounder. Accordingly, he is suitable for the following work:

  • against mites
  • for mattresses in general
  • for car seats
  • for disinfecting

Steam cleaner against mites does not work that way

The use of the steam cleaner against mites is as often described, not possible. Although mites are killed by the hot steam. In order to clean a mattress with it - and in the mattress mites can be found most often - it would have to be cleaned at certain points for several minutes.

Mattresses and car seats

The situation is similar with other applications such as the steam cleaner for car seats (velours). Even with the "classic" surfaces, which can be cleaned with the steam cleaner, something must be restricted. The dirt is released thermally and mechanically.

The special thing when loosening dirt with the steam cleaner: the dirt is not only solved superficially. After that, it still has to be wiped off. That's why it does not work for mattresses or car seats. But even on the ground or on glass that is problematic. The floor can stick after cleaning, streaks appear on glass.

Combined with other cleaning techniques you can clean a lot

For example, fat is liquefied but not dissolved without chemical additives. Therefore, it makes sense to wipe behind the steam cleaner with conventional cleaner. This still saves a lot of time because the basic solution of the dirt works better.

In addition, hard to reach areas such as corners are cleaned quickly. So what you can cleanse everything also depends on how the pre-dissolved dirt can be permanently removed. For floors, glass and similar surfaces, the steam cleaner has clear advantages.
