  6. What Can You Clean with a Steam Cleaner?

    What Can You Clean with a Steam Cleaner?

     

    Steam cleaning is one of the most versatile ways of making sure your home and possessions are left squeaky clean.

    It is eco-friendly as it only requires electricity in the water heating process, and no chemicals are involved. This makes it a safer alternative for the environment and your health (not to mention your budget). It can also be used on the go, allowing you to spend more time enjoying your home and loved ones.

    It’s a common assumption that steam cleaning can only be used to iron clothing, eliminating wrinkles and leaving the fabric feeling fresh and clean. But it can actually do so much more than that!

    It disinfects and sanitises, killing germs, fungus, mould, dust mites, etc., preventing disease from spreading amongst your family, friends and pets. It gets to hard to reach places and removes tricky substances without much effort on your part too.

    Most importantly, you will only ever need a single device for all your cleaning tasks!

    It’s drummed into us from a young age – but why is hand washing so important? It may seem obvious but it’s interesting to find out more. Hand washing is important in preventing you from getting sick, as well as stopping the spread of diseases and illnesses to others. Not keeping your hands properly clean is the easiest way to spread germs, and even the cleanest of people will still easily collect germs on their hands.

    Why hand washing is so important

    When we don’t wash our hands, it opens up a variety of ways to spread germs, and possibly cause illness.
