I would like to help with your quest for a steam cleaner. There is some confusion over the term steam cleaning and in fact its a
misnomer. The right name in carpet cleaning is “Hot Water Extraction” what has not helped is now the marketing guys have got hold of this term for “Steam Mops”
Steam Mops are marketed that they can clean many surfaces and carpets being one. The truth is that they can but are very limited in what they can achieve. They can only really maintain very light soiled carpets. and when you see them being demonstrated the mop head get dirty very quick and so need to be replaced with a fresh one. just think how many you would need just for one room.
My Recommendation For A Steam Cleaner
If you are going to but a steam cleaner and why not as I said they can clean many surfaces I recommend using a Polti Brand. these are the very best as they dont drip water everywhere. This is important as this makes them much safer to use around the house. Polti is the best brand for steam cleaners and have 40 years of production to prove it. Polti YouTube
